Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm & Body Butter

lyonsleaf body butter beauty balm

In my most recent update to my cruelty-free brands lists, I mentioned that I had been having a pow wow over e-mail with Vicky who owns a company called Lyonsleaf about cruelty-free products. This is a company with great ethical credentials - made in the UK, Vicky grows many of the herbs she uses in her products herself as well as not testing on animals and marking out the vegan products. I had also first heard of Lyonsleaf from Sarah's blog who specialises in beauty for sensitive skin and allergy sufferers, and she absolutely raves about them. When Vicky offered me some products to try I certainly got excited.

First off I have the Body Butter*, which made it into my October favourites video as it has now become my go to moisturiser for my legs, arms and torso (it is thin so I still prefer to use something else for my feet). Because if it's thinness I prefer to scoop it up with my thumb nail and melt it in my hands before smothering it onto my body. It's has a texture that melts into the skin and even though it does take a bit longer to absorb than others (maybe a minute) it leaf my skin feeling extremely soft. The smell of the product reminds me of the Lush Henna hair dye which certainly was a bit weird at first (since it contains no henna - the label has both latin and everyday names for its ingredients) but the smell doesn't linger on the skin. It's also extremely gentle and I could use it after shaving my legs.

Secondly I received the award-winning Beauty Balm*, which has made it into my evening skincare routine for nights where my skin is looking parched and needs a pick me up. The Lyonsleaf website has a guide how to use the balm and is designed to cleanse but not be too harsh. I have oily skin and even though it gets banded about to use exfoliant on spot-prone skin I've always found that gentler products have always yielded the best results. I found this product great for removing make-up and doing a bit of a 'double cleanse' because of its gentle nature. I've massaged it though my eyelashes to see if it would remove my mascara (which it did) and it didn't sting or tingle my eyes in the slightest.

These products are great if you have sensitive skin and require gentle products. It's also great for those of us who are cruelty-free and vegan, and love to support independent businesses. I received these products for free but would definitely consider buying something else with my own money.

Vicky was also lovely enough to give me a code to use if you want to purchase anything yourself. Use the code GIFT20 at the checkout to get 20% off orders over £50.

P.S. I was gifted these products for free, but opinions are always my own.
