On a recent girls trip away I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to bring along some products to pamper with. There were no kids, no husbands and we called it the weekend of zero responsibility. The fact that we were only away for one night was clearly ignored when we chose the name. Amazing. As we settled down chill out, I brought out the pampering goods. I am sure that the majority of my products were from Aurelia Probiotic Skincare. including my new multi award winning Miracle Cleanser that I treated myself to at Christmas (£34 for 120ml). Although I had tried it in Space NK when I met the Aurelia team, I was keen to try it at home and over a period of time. Now my besties had the opportunity to be included in this trial….. I refrained from calling them my lab rats?
Having been used to using either a balm or oil based cleanser for a while, it felt fab to use a more creamy cleanser. Sometimes it is nice to just switch it up. Aurelia Probiotic Skincare really prides itself on it’s use of probiotic and peptide technologies . I wasn’t really completely up to date with the use of probiotics in skincare, but Aurelia have a really informative website which tells you more about their science. Aurelia Probiotic Skincare have cleverly used these technologies along with BioOrganic plant and flower essences to make this intelligent cleanser. Harnessing the strength of these powerful natural ingredients with the gentleness of being from nature itself, this cleanser is perfect for any type of skin, including sensitive.
So what was it like to use? This Miracle Cleanser is really cooling to apply. I find it to have a whipped cream like texture which doesn’t stick to or drag the skin, but smooths along the surface, making it great for massaging onto dry skin. I massaged the cleanser in for a couple of minutes in small circular movements. You can of course do this for a shorter period of time, however I like to take in the moment and enjoy all the scents.
The aroma of this cleanser is definitely uplifting and is a glorious blend of Chamomile, Eucalyptus, Rosemary and Bergamot. Aromatically it is quite therapeutic too. To wash the Miracle Cleanser off you dampen the bamboo muslin in warm water, before wiping it over your skin. I found it only took a few repeats of this to rinse off all the product. My skin felt quite fresh and pure as I patted it dry.
I always like to inspect my skin after a good cleanse and I noticed how clear my pores looked after my first trial. Feedback from my other testers was equally as good. One described it as being “really nice”, “left my skin feeling amazing” and “ooh I like, it smells too good”. If you are used to using a balm cleanser you will probably have a load of muslins at home. A mini poll I did showed that a number of you found that your muslins became quite rough after washing and now scrape your skin. Not so good. Aurelia have their own anti-bacterial bamboo muslin in the box. First point to note is this bamboo muslin is anti-bacterial. Secondly, it washes well and far from being scratchy, it remains soft. Thirdly, it is organic.
