terre d'Oc organic natural skin care - Japan Range


The latest terre d'Oc natural and organic skincare launch is the Japanese range, with 7 products in the collection. I've been lucky enough to try these 5: Milky Make-up Remover Oil, Anti-ageing Eye and Lip Care, Purifying Scrub Mask, Anti-Pollution Natural Foundation and Milky Perfume Cloud. Here's a little review of 2 of them for you.
Milky Perfume Cloud, wow - what a beautiful smell. The best recommendation - EVERY one of us in the office loves it, and we all have quite different tastes, how unusual to find a one-smell-suits-all perfume. Another benefit, it's also a moisturiser, just spray the Milky Perfume Cloud on your arms for example, rub it in, and you will smell beautiful and have silky smooth skin too. Bonus! It says it is 'an elegant milky veil of Hot Spring Flowers, Camellia Oil and Wakame, scented with delicate plum tree blossom', we think it is a lovely fresh spring / summer smell, all nice and blossomy with a touch of almond.
Next, I tried the Milky Make-up Remover whilst I was in London at the weekend. I'm a country girl, so I really notice the difference a visit to the big smoke makes my skin, and a key ingredient in this product is Wakame Seaweed (billed as nature's anti-pollutant), so it was definitely the cleanser to take. I was VERY impressed! The Milky Make-up Remover is inspired by the Japanese 'Saho' double cleansing ritual (the key beauty tip right now) and claims to purify and protect - revealing soft, smooth and radiant skin. I have quite dry and slightly sensitive skin, so I wasn't sure if this product would suit me or not, but luckily it worked its magic and did just what it claimed it would, my skin felt perfectly cleansed and looked positively radiant. It has a strange texture - when you squeeze it into your hand it resembles a lusciously thick gel (like a nutrient-packed golden syrup), when you warm it in your hands it becomes an oil which you massage onto your face to remove all traces of dirt, grime and make-up, then you add water to rinse it off and it becomes milky. It completely reminded me of Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel, (something that I have missed hugely since switching to natural, chemical-free skin care), so anyone who is a fan of that will love this product.
