Narloa are a small, organic, natural skincare brand based in London. All their products, which are designed especially for sensitive skin, are handmade in small batches to ensure the very best quality and freshness and are cruelty free suitable for vegans.
A few months ago, I tried their Mandarin Cleansing Oil and was seriously impressed by the results. Unlike other cleansing oils I’ve tried in the past, this one doesn’t emulsify on the skin when it comes into contact with water. Instead, as you massage into the skin, it gently lifts impurities and cleanses your face before you take a hot face cloth to remove (much like a hot cloth cleanser). As a dry skin sufferer , I personally loved the feel of my skin afterwards, as even after my second cleanse and toning regime, my skin still felt soft and nourished. The zesty scent of Mandarin also stays on the skin for a while after using which actually made me love this product even more! Needless to say, this is a firm favourite in my skincare routine and is definitely a product I would recommend.
After my amazing experience with Narloa products, I decided that I certainly needed more of the range in my life!
My next purchase was Narloa Balancing Face Oil, which is designed to work with any skin type from dry and sensitive to oily and mature. It’s made with 10 essential oils including Grapeseed, Pomegranate, Hemp Seed, Vitamin E and German Chamomile (to name a few!). It promises to rejuvenate, soothe and soften skin while also aiding the healing of problem skin such as eczema, psoriasis, acne and scarring. The lightweight formula is also packed full of fatty acids and antioxidants, as well as anti-aging and anti-bacterial properties, to keep skin in tip-top condition. I’ve been using this for around 6 weeks and have definitely noticed a difference in the appearance of my skin. My face feels nourished and moisturised, while also looking brighter and more radiant. My eczema, which flares-up at this time of year, has been greatly improved and instantly calmed. The texture of the Balance Face Oil isn’t greasy at all and absorbs into the skin with ease. This is a product I couldn’t live without and it’s certainly worth trying out.
The final product I’ve tried is the glorious Jasmine and Neroli Body Oil. When it comes to body oils, I only tend to use them once in a blue moon due to the greasy texture which just sits on the skin. However, I have to say that since Narloa’s Jasmine and Neroli Body Oil has arrived, I’ve been using this pretty much everyday! Not only does this smell amazing, with neither the jasmine or neroli overpowering each other, but it also absorbs beautifully into slightly damp skin. As it contains lots of skin loving ingredients, such as Sweet Almond, Coconut, Avocado and Jojoba (among others), it leaves your skin feeling silky smooth and looking incredibly healthy. Even though it absorbs quickly, my dry skin still felt moisturised hours afterwards, and I’ve noticed some eczema scarring on my arms is visibly reduced. This is the perfect product for body oil fans and first-timers alike, and certainly won’t be leaving my skincare routine anytime soon.
