You may have a seen a couple of months ago I reviewed a few products from White Wash Soaps. Since then, they have re-branded and now have beautiful high end packaging along with just a couple of products and are re-named Mallow & White.
Founded by Joanna White, the brand uses a maximum of 6 ingredients in each of their products. The range is small at the minute, with a Facial Oil and a Clay Face Mask making up the entire product selection, however Joanna is planning to add more products from the previous brand in the new year.
Each of the products come in three different varieties depending on skin type. There’s Restore for dry/normal skin, Revitalise for mature skin and Soothe for sensitive skins. The award-winning Restore Facial Oil has just five ingredients; rosehip seed oil, apricot kernel oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil and rose geranium essential oil. This oil won a Silver Award at the 2015 Free From Skincare Awards and it’s not hard to see why. Such a simple yet beautiful blend of oils that help to keep skin moisturised. You can add a couple of drops to your moisturiser for an enriching treat, apply on it’s own at night and massage into skin or apply under make-up as a primer, then use any leftover on your hands to moisturise nails and cuticles. A wonderful multi-purpose product.
The Restore Dead Sea Clay Mask is made with five ingredients; dead sea mud, Moroccan lava clay, organic green tea leaf powder, organic cornstarch and organic geranium essential oil. This can be used as a face mask or an exfoliating powder which is the way I enjoy using it the most. Simply mix the powder with a little bit of water and gently massage into skin to help get rid of dry skin and reveal smooth skin. It works well to unclog pores and reduce redness of any blemishes.
If you use it as a face mask, you can customise it so many different ways. You can add some of the Restore Facial Oil to the mix for added nourishment, a little bit of honey for moisture or replace water with apple cider vinegar to help unclog pores and minimise spots. Apple cider vinegar absolutely stinks, however it’s my favourite liquid to mix with clay masks because it’s so detoxifying.
Mallow & White donate 10% of their products to Kiva, an organisation which helps to alleviate poverty around the world so your money is going to a great cause too.
Both of these products can be bought separately or in a Facial Kit which would make a great gift this Christmas. Priced at £36.00 for the Oil and £20.00 for the Mask, or together for £49.00 saving you £7.00. (I will link to this when the Facial Kit goes live on the Mallow & White website in the next week or so).
