I was first introduced to One Love Organics when I received a sample of their Skin Saviour Waterless Beauty Balm in a Love Lula beauty box last year. When I saw that Naturismo were selling generous sample sizes of their Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser and Brand New Day Scrub & Masque I seized the opportunity to explore the brand further.
Foaming cleanser get a bad press for their reputation for stripping the skin. For quite a while I haven't used a foaming cleanser, because of the fear it would dry out my skin too much. I can honestly assure you that this is not the case with Easy Does It. This is incredibly gentle on the skin. It has a lovely delicate fruity fragrance and only a very small amount is needed. I haven't found it drying in the least and have been very pleased with how soft it leaves my skin. Much as I love a balm or an oil, there are times when I just want something a little quicker. Easy Does It steps up to the mark perfectly.
I have taken the ingredient list from the One Love Organics website.
Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Sodium Coco-Glucoside Tartrate, Sodium Hydroxypropylsulfonate Laurylglucoside Crosspolymer, Sodium Cocoyl Hydrolyzed Amaranth Protein, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, Lauryl Glucoside, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Oil, Quillaja Saponaria Bark Extract, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Sodium Hydroxypropylsulfonate Decylglucoside Crosspolymer, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Sodium Lauryl Glucose Carboxylate, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract
Brand New Day is a multi purpose product that can either be used as a mask or a scrub, and can be used on both face and body. Given the price of this, I use it on my face as I want to make it last as long as possible. Having said that, this little sample has lasted me a couple of months of using twice a week as a scrub and once a week as a mask. I do think this is good value for money.
To use as a scrub add a little water o about a teaspoon of product to make a paste and gently massage into the skin. To use as a mask either mix with a little water, yoghurt, honey or such and apply for 10-15 minutes. Either way it works wonders.
Brand New Day is very finely milled, so there is none of that gritty or abrasive feeling. Again this is a very gentle product that is very effective. I am so impressed with how much brighter it makes my skin look. This will definitely be replaced when my sample runs out.
Organic Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Organic Pisum Sativum (Sweet Pea) Flour, Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate, Organic Ananas Comosus (pineapple) fruit extract, Sodium Myristoyl Glutamate, proprietary natural and organic fragrance compounds
Finally the product that started my love affair off. Skin Saviour Waterless Beauty Balm. This is absolutely divine and is one of my favourite cleansers. I adore it's sweet fruity fragrance and that it is multi-purpose. My favourite ways are to use it as a cleanser or face mask, but it can also be used as a moisturiser. It just melts into the skin, removing all traces of make up and grime. This is what I use when I want to indulge in some serious pampering. This is very much a product to take your time with and to savour the experience.

There are many other product I want to try. In particular I have my eye on their Morning Glory Serum and the Supercritical Chia oil. They sell a little tester kit with samples of the above and their Morning Glory and Love Springs Eternal Youth Preservation Serum which works out at £5.95 (including p+p). One just accidentally fell into my basket.
