The Beauty Kitchen Skincare Review

I love being able to try skincare ranges and letting you all know my thoughts. Recently, some Beauty Kitchen bits arrived at my post box!  They’re all natural, organic, vegan and cruelty-free. Here’s how I found them…

ABYSSINIAN OIL FACIAL CLEANSING BALM*

If you’ve read any of my skincare posts on here, you’ll probably know that I love a cleansing balm to remove my makeup. They are hard, solid balms that melt into an oil upon contact with the skin and they remove makeup effortlessly! This one, however, is a slightly different texture that other ones I’ve tried. It’s a harder texture and although it melts into the skin, it takes a bit more work- which I don’t mind. All I’m saying it, it’s not a quick cleanse, it’s more of a treat as it forces you to really massage it into the skin. 

In terms of makeup removal, It does the job well. It melts away all makeup including waterproof mascara but I have to say is that it leaves a little film on the skin when removed with a hot cloth. I quite like it, as it makes the skin feel very nourished. Overall thoughts? I like it, but unfortunately,  it’s not my all time fave and I think next time I’ll try something else.

ABYSSINIAN OIL HANDBAG BALM* 

Oh I do love this. What is better than a multi-purpose balm that sorts everything out? You can use it for a lip balm, body oil, cuticle oil or for dry patches. I use this on my psoriasis patches as a more natural alternative to the nasty steroid creams from the doctors. It hasn’t cleared it up over night or anything (for me, NOTHING will) but it really soothes my skin and makes it feel a lot more comfortable.

In terms of texture, It’s more oily and slippy that others I’ve tried, which I really like! Some balms can be gritty but I much prefer this. TOP TIP, use this a highlighter and I swear people will need to wear sunglasses around you.

ABYSSINIAN FACE OIL* 

This is my favourite product from the line. I’ve tried so many facial oils and they’re all lovely but this one feels like it’s actually doing something- I think due to the active ingredients. It contains argan oil and my favourite rosehip oil. It’s not a dry oil, you can definitely feel it on the skin but I don’t mind that! I love using this to really massage my skin and give it a nice treat. Well done Beauty Kitchen, this is a beautiful oil with great ingredients that are keeping my skin very happy. 

ABYSSINIAN OIL FIVE MINUTE FACE MASK*

Okay so everything so far has been really lovely and if you’re in the market for new skincare products- I really think this brand would be great. Unfortunately, I also tried the 5-minute mask and although nothing bad happened, nothing good did either! It made my skin feel nice and soft after but for £14.99 you would expect it to do a bit more than that. I’m not slating the product as it may do wonders for YOUR skin but for me, I’ll be going for a cheaper alternative for a mask.

Thank you so much to The Beauty KIitchen for working with me on this post. I really appreciate it and I love your products and your brand! Products marked with a * were kindly sent to me but as always, it’s 100% my opinion.
