I am always searching for innovative natural beauty brands that are clean, cruelty-free and made right here in the UK; so you can imagine my delight when I discovered Clockface Beauty.
Clockface Beauty are a 100% natural, organic, vegan and cruelty-free beauty brand based in Yorkshire, with a true passion for the natural world and the positive effects it has on our wellbeing, as well as our beauty routines. Founded by a mother and daughter team who believe that beauty products should be ‘led by science, guided by nature’ and most importantly, promote self-care, their brand ethos is certainly one to be admired. Their extensive product range for both men and women includes an all natural promise that every item is plant and nature derived, ensuring that you’ll only ever receive clean and high quality products.
When the lovely Sarah over at Clockface Beauty asked me to try some products, you can imagine my delight. I’ve been trying the products for around two weeks now, and I wanted to share my first impressions with you.
Oil based serums are a staple in my skincare routine as the weather gets cooler so Clockface’s Signature Collection Facial Serum was certainly a welcomed edition. The serum itself , which is 98% organic, is designed to give a fresh, youthful glow to the skin while hydrating, soothing and protecting against damage on all skin types. A blend of rich oils, including jojoba, avocado, grapeseed and argan oil, alongside skin loving essential oils, makes for a surprisingly lightweight formula which absorbs beautifully into the skin. So far, it’s working well with my other skincare products and keeps my skin feeling nourished throughout the day. The scent is heavenly, with notes of myrrh, frankincense, ylang ylang and patchouli, which give the serum a spa-like aroma. First impressions have so far been good, and I can’t wait to see how my skin responds after using this on a longer-term basis.
I do love a good face mask, so again, I couldn’t wait to try this one from Clockface Beauty. I’ve been using a lot of powdered masks recently so it’s nice to use a pre-mixed clay mask for a change, especially as this one doesn’t dry out during application. The mask combines green and white clay to freshen, soften and tone the skin. As a unisex product, and one for all skin types, it also promises to promote healing, exfoliate, balance, hydrate and reduce the appearance of scars, blemishes and signs of aging. The mask, which is 99% organic, has a lovely texture as it isn’t too thick or sticky, but actually has a dryness to it which is quite unique. A small amount of mask spreads across the face with ease, and holds well on the skin. After 10 minutes, and a quick rinse later, my skin certainly felt softer and smoother and I didn’t experience any dry patches at all. I’ve used this on several occasions now and I have to say that I am really enjoying it so far.
As far as lip balms go, I usually stick to fragrance free options or ones which have very basic scents – so was initially sceptical if i’d enjoy this particular fragrance. However, after first use, I had to admit that I might have been wrong in my initial thoughts. The scent, which is similar to the serum above, is rich in frankincense, myrrh and tea tree and felt luxurious from the first application. The packaging, which is fully recyclable once cleaned out, makes the application incredibly easy and quick, especially when on-the-go, and ensures that the balm remains clean and bacteria free. The shea butter and coconut oil base relieves dryness and soothes chapped lips, and I love the fact that, like the mask, it’s a unisex product. My experience so far has only been a positive one, but with the weather getting colder, i’m excited to see how it performs over time.
Overall, I have to say that first impressions are incredibly positive and i’ve enjoyed the Clockface Beauty experience so far. Each product brings an element of luxury to my beauty routine, and the all natural promise certainly brings confidence in the brand itself. I can’t wait to continue using these products to see how they perform on a long term basis, but all I can say is so far, so good.
