Barefoot SOS Face and Body Cream Reviews

Review of Barefoot Botanicals SOS Rescue Me Face and Body Cream
by Debra S.

Packaging: Barefoot SOS Face and Body Cream packaging is basically a white tube and clear lid with lots of information on the front and back, including a logo, but no other images. This is a very simple and unimpressive packaging design with font print in turquoise, black and silver.
Application: It takes a few seconds to sink into the skin, but is very light and non-greasy. I would have preferred a more creamy concoction. It smelt like paradise, however, although it was definitely not overpowering. I would rate this as a fantastic fragrance in which I could smell both the lavender and orange blossom.
Ingredients: Well, the ingredients are listed on the packaging as containing: borage oil, shea butter, evening primrose oil, calendula, burdock, mahonia, French lavender, chamomile and orange blossom. The website also states that the Barefoot Botanicals SOS Cream ingredients include: neroli, comfrey and chickweed. There is a full list of every ingredient on the very simple to read website. I am happy with these, as they include some of my favourites and most trusted natural remedies for dry skin.
Results: I was incredibly impressed with the results of Barefoot Botanicals SOS Cream. I have some eczema on my elbows and noted that this cream was suitable for the condition. I must say it certainly was, as upon my very first application, it calmed this complaint down and it seemed to disappear with the second application. There were no allergic reactions at all, despite having very sensitive skin. Barefoot Botaniclas SOS Cream felt wonderful on both my face and neck and afterwards my skin felt really soft and silky to touch. I also used it on my hands, which are very dry at the moment, and, it made them instantly soft too. The results lasted for hours and hours. It is quite economical too, as I did not apply much. Barefoot Botaniclas SOS Cream is a fabulous cream which I would be very happy to buy…

Rosa Fina Nourishing Cleansing Milk Reviews

Review of Barefoot Botanicals Rosa Fina Nourishing Cleansing Milk
by Sally S.

Packaging: The Rosa Fina Cleansing Milk comes in a plastic pump dispensing bottle inside a beautiful box outer. I love the simplicity of the pump dispensing bottle, it gives out just the right amount. I was disappointed to see that the bottle is plastic though, I prefer glass as it’s easier to get recycled.

Application: The Rosa Fina cleanser is a light textured milk. It is refreshing to use and a little goes along way as you massage it into the face and neck. The best method of removing it is with a hot cloth or flannel. It can be used to remove eye make up too and did not sting my sensitive eyes at all. However I think it would struggle to remove waterproof mascara effectively.

Ingredients: The aroma of the Rosa Fina Cleansing Milk was gorgeous, a very sophisticated smell which made it very pleasant to use each day. The fragrance comes from the rosa damascena, juniper, frankincense and mandarin essential oils. The ingredients are 100 % natural and careful attention seems to have been placed on using refreshing, cleansing and detoxifying herbs to support the rosa mosqueta oil that is used through out the range for its firming properties.

Results: Having used the Rosa Fina cleanser for a while I have found my skin has remained problem free, the cleanser removes all traces of make up. My skin has felt a little drier since using the cleanser which is not a problem as it can be a tad oily if not treated properly.

Fantastic dispensing pump delivers just the right amount.
Only requires a small amount of product so the 125ml will last ages.
Skin feels fresh and clean after using the cleanser.

· Plastic bottle, I prefer glass.
· It did not remove my eye make up fully.
