White Wash Soaps | Beauty Review

11 Jul 2015

I was recently contacted by Joanna who runs White Wash Soaps, a natural skincare company whose products all contain 6 or less ingredients. All of the products are hand blended in the UK and don't contain any nasties like parabens, SLS, petrochemicals, artificial colours or preservatives. They are currently in the middle of re-branding and will have a new name soon along with new products...more details will be at the end of this post!

I was sent a few products to test out including the Nourishing Beauty Balm*, the Peppermint & Lavender Foot Rescue* and the Peppermint & Lavender Sea Salt Foot Scrub*.

I'll start off with the two foot products...
The Foot Scrub is made with just 5 ingredients; sea salt, shea butter, jojoba oil, peppermint oil and lavender oil and the Foot Rescue is made with 4 ingredients, the same as the scrub just without the salt. 

The Foot Scrub is made with salt that is very fine, so it isn't a really "scrubby" scrub however it does a fairly good job. I use it in the shower, but have to be quite careful as the shea butter can make it a little slippy. It smells really lovely, the peppermint is very strong but the lavender brings it back slightly and makes it a lovely blend. I would prefer if the salt were larger, simply because I do get quite dry feet so I like to give them a good ol' scrub but it does helps to soften the dry skin.
The Foot Rescue Cream has the same lovely scent as the scrub. This is one of those products where you can't really go wrong. It has shea butter and jojoba oil to moisturise and then the two essential oils. It is lightly whipped but throws a punch when it comes to moisturising my feet. After just one use you can see a difference to the dry skin on my feet. Especially around Summer time when I'm wearing sandals & flip flops, my heels and sides of my feet get super dry so I like to use this as an overnight treatment. I'll put it on a little before going to bed, put on slippers or socks (when it's not crazy hot!) and in the morning there's a huge difference.
Next up, the Nourishing Neroli Facial Balm is made with just 6 ingredients; rosehip oil, jojoba oil, shea butter, beeswax, neroli oil and palmarosa oil. The main scent is neroli so if you're not a fan of the scent of neroli I'd leave this one, however I love it. Like all balms, it melts upon contact with the skin into an oil which helps to remove make-up easily as well as cleansing my skin. 

My skin has been loving this recently. Over the past few months my skin hasn't been acting up as much but this helps to calm any spots, should any arise, and keep dry skin at bay. It won't break the bank either at just £18.50 for a 60ml jar. You only need a small amount to cleanse your face and I remove with a warm flannel. My skin is left with a lovely glow, but not greasy, and it does a lovely job of cleansing my skin. Definitely one of my favourite balms.

Joanna has been busy re-branding and the new name will be Mallow & White and should be available by the end of July. The new brand will feature new products such as facial oils, balms in different scents and face masks. I'll be featuring some of the products upon release so keep an eye out. I've seen a sneaky peak of the new packaging and it looks amazing!

Another great thing about the brand is that a percentage of their profit is invested in Kiva (www.kiva.org) who help alleviate poverty around the world. 2014 profits have been invested in women entrepreneurs in Uganda, Lebanon and Congo. These projects have empowered the women and helped promote gender equality.
