A Facetheory Review

I’ve recently been trying out some more skincare products from Facetheory and I thought it was time to share my thoughts on the three products I’ve been using. If you haven’t heard of Facetheory before then you should definitely check them out. They are a UK-based vegan and cruelty-free brand that sells skincare, body care and makeup and they’re all about making simple but effective beauty products that don’t cost an arm and a leg. They‘re also free of parabens, silicones, PEGs, SLS, SLES, and mineral oils. I have reviewed other products from them before which you can check out here

First up is the Freshening Face Wash C4 RRP £11* with Aloe Vera and Green Tea Extract which has a Bergamot scent and comes in a glass bottle with a pump so it can be reused or recycled. The face wash can be used by any skin type but it is most suitable for oily/combination skin as Aloe Vera has soothing properties and is also a natural astringent, Green Tea contains polyphenols, which have proven antioxidant effects in protecting skin and Green Tea can also help reduce sebum production too. I like to use this face wash in the morning because it’s gentle but effective and doesn’t leave your skin feeling stripped. You also only need a pea-sized amount per use. 

Next is the Green Tea Rescue Face Mask RRP £18* with Kaolin Clay, Chamomile, Vitamin C and Avocado which is suitable for combination/sensitive skin and has been made to deeply cleanse the skin without drying out the skin like some clay masks do. It contains Kaolin Clay which helps to draw out impurities, Vitamin C which gently brightens and Lactic Acid which helps to expedite cell turnover. You can use it once or twice a week, you just leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse off with warm water. Overall I think it’s a nice face mask, it leaves your skin feeling super clean, fresh and soft just as Facetheory claims. 

Lastly is the Balancing Rosehip Oil O3 RRP £20* with Organic Rosehip Oil and Vitamin E  which has a lovely kind of earthy floral scent. The luxurious cold-pressed Rosehip Oil has anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties ideal for those with mature or acne-prone skin. It contains powerful antioxidants which help to brighten skin and improve texture and skin elasticity while shielding against damaging environmental aggressors. It contains Linoleic Acid and Vitamin E to help hydrate, soothe and soften dry skin while regulating oil production in oily and acne-prone skin. I’ve only used the Rosehip oil about 4-5 times so far, I’ve applied it as a facial oil with my hands towards the end of my skincare routine and I’ve also used it as a massage oil when doing a Gua Sha facial massage. I definitely feel like my skin looks fresher and plumper after using it. I’m usually a little bit wary of facial oils usually because I have an oily/combination skin type but I feel like my skin likes Rosehip oil as it’s quite light and it absorbs fairly quickly. I probably wouldn’t use it daily but could use it a few times a week.
