Gentle Face Cleanser + Exfoliant + Moisturizer + Face Mask : Suti’s CLEANSE Organic Facial Cleansing Balm & Muslin Cloth

If you’ve been following along for a bit, you may have seen my original post on Suti Skincare, but if not, you may have seen the reviews I did for their Peppermint Face Toner and Purity Balm Moisturizer, which I also featured as one of my June Beauty Favorites. If not, do check them out! I’ve become such a huge fan of Suti since first trying samples of their stuff a few months back. They are truly one of those organic beauty brands that offer quality products that are also very effective and that is something to be applauded. They’re already one a few awards for their efforts including Best Beauty Newcomer by Sublime Magazine for 2011 and it’s all very well deserved.

Their Organic Cleanse Balm is certainly no different than any of their products in terms of quality. Although you get a modest sized jar, I can fully attest to the fact that a little really actually does go a long way. This will last you several months. It’s a very compact balm in the jar and a dime sized amount easily melts in your hand and onto your face. This is a different kind of cleanser entirely to the typical foam and rinse types; it requires a bit more work, but the payoff is better. You really have to massage this kind of cleanser into your face really well to get the results you want, otherwise this is just oil sitting on your face being useless, albeit really high quality oils. In order to get the full effect, you must massage this into your skin for at least a minute and you can leave it on for 5-20 minutes if you want to get added mask effects. It really deep cleans the pores without being drying to the skin and, when used with the muslin cloth (free when you purchase the Cleanse Balm, BTW!), it exfoliates your skin in an extremely gentle way that doesn’t irritate, just brightens and tones. I really like their muslin cloth as well; it’s unbleached and natural and it’s really quite soft. This one is certainly higher quality than the one from Liz Earle, though both get the job done at any rate.

Aside from being an incredible cleanser, it also really hydrates the skin really well. Amid the scorching heat we’ve been enduring lately, I’ve been using this alone. I did test it with the Purity Balm on cooler days and it worked really well combined with that too, though a bit too moisturizing for the hot, miserably humid days we’ve been experiencing for the past 3 weeks (Ugh.)

The things I truly love about this cleanser are that it is very gentle and includes a lot of healing ingredients. On days when my skin just feels downright abused (like when I feel oily, dirty, but still dry – WTF?), this is an absolutely skin saver. It just feels so nourishing and the nourishing oils sink right into the skin, leaving my skin feeling super soft and supple. I have truly loved this on hot days (believe it or not) because it’s allowed me to combine cleansing with moisturizing and it leaves my skin feeling balanced because I can buff this off my face with warm water and the muslin cloth after massaging it into the skin.

This is definitely a more expensive cleansing balm, but as far as cleansing balms go, this is the best one I’ve ever tried and truly worth the price in my opinion. I know a lot of people don’t like to spend a lot on skincare, but it’s something I think is truly worth investing in because your face is the only one you’ve got and it deserves the best.

Keep Cool In This Heat with Suti’s Peppermint Water Facial Toner

If you’ve been following along for awhile now, you’ll know how much I’ve come to love Suti Skincare. Ever since they sent me mini samples a few months ago, I’ve been a serious convert of their products. After all, they’re made with all natural and organic ingredients, quality packaging and their products are above all, effective.

So, when they agreed to send me more products for review, of course I said yes!

This is one of the awesome products they’ve sent me that has seriously been a godsend. I was actually complaining about the unbearable heat in an email to one of their lovely reps when she agreed to send this to me!

I cannot thank her enough! Seriously, this toner is so cooling given the peppermint in it, plus it comes in a very convenient spray bottle that I keep in my purse for every hour on the hour that I’m guaranteed to be sweating. Did I mention my office has no AC? We have a very large glorified fan that manages to cool down the hallway and little else, but this toner has been doing all the work to keep me from dying of heat overload. Not only that, but it helps to calm redness and irritation so I’ve been using it at night to help get rid of 2 spots that popped up when the weather took a turn for the worse (105 degrees F here today!). It’s meant for combination to oily skin types, but I actually think anyone with any skin type could use this one. It is gentle, calming and doesn’t have any added fragrance so the scent of peppermint is just barely discernible. The effects, on the other hand, are subtle yet immediately cooling and calming.

All in all, a seriously awesome product made with only the best ingredients – pure organic peppermint leaf water.

It’s pretty pricey at £18.00 (approx. $36 USD), but you do get a fair amount of product (100mL) and it really does last you.

Suti Skincare’s Purity Balm Review

So, not that long ago I reviewed some mini samples that were sent to me from Suti Skincare (see those reviews – here!) and I had tried the mini sample of this balm, but I just didn’t get the hype. That being said, I was only able to get like 3 uses out of the little jar they sent so of course I wouldn’t be able to get a good feel for something like this that effects the skin over time. That being said, apparently Suti reps agreed with this notion and decided to send me a full size of this one to try to get a better feel for it!

So yay! I am super happy I was able to try the full size of this because it has been amazing at calming my skin down on days when I’m just red and blotchy, dry or even riddled with breakouts for no damn reason. My skin has a mind of it’s own at times and just does whatever it pleases so this was great to have on hand because it actually does wonders at calming, nourishing and healing flare-ups of any kind whatsoever.

It feels really gritty straight out of the jar, but it melts on contact with the skin and soon turns into an oil type balm texture. I love the impressive ingredient list and the fact that it’s certified organic in the U.K. where certification requirements are much more strict than in the U.S. The main superstars in this are the calendula, chamomile and lavender which all work wonders to soothe the skin. Plus, this balm smells wonderful and really helps to relax me in the evenings before bed.

Ingredients: Vitellaria Niloteca (Shea Butter)*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil*, Cera Alba (Beeswax)*, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil*, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract*, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil*, Tocopherol, Anthemis Nobilis (Roman Chamomile) Flower Oil*, Linalool**, Geraniol**, Limonene**

* Certified Organic  ** Naturally occurring in essential oils

The heavy jar packaging is really nice and classy looking and it comes with an odd plastic spatula thing meant to help scoop the balm out of the jar, but it’s so thin and has no actual spoon or anything on the end. I really felt it was quite useless and threw it away after getting frustrated trying to use it. I like the idea behind it, but the design of this is such crap and it’s confusing because the jar is really top notch quality. Anyhow, I just ended up using one of my spoons instead because I find it’s more effective than the crap stick they sent.

Okay so back to how amazing this balm is!

It feels really softening on the skin and it actually has similar effects on my skin that their cleansing balm did only without having to rinse. It is so protective as well, but it doesn’t feel at all heavy or thick. It didn’t make me break out; quite the opposite, this helped clear some breakouts I had going on.

I highly recommend this to any and all skin types. It is so great to use when your skin is out of balance or just freaking out for no reason which I think can happen to us all sometimes. It will work especially well for those with dry, sensitive or even acne prone skin types because it’s very hydrating, calming, and balancing. The soothing ingredients in this are great for all types and gentle enough for those who can’t use drugstore type products. The ingredients are truly top quality and beneficial for the skin. It is a bit expensive, but it’s completely worth it, in my opinion, because the quality and effects are amazing. As disgustingly marketing jargon this is going to come off as, it really does “feed your skin” as their slogan states and I really believe anyone could benefit from using this balm.
