I do love the Natural and Organic Product show, every year I visit and discover something that I fall a little bit in love with. Last year it was Konjac Sponges, and this year it's a cleanser from le Belle natural skincare.
I'm naturally biased towards oil cleansers anyway, having been a sufferer from adult-onset acne for many years, and making the discovery that oil-based cleansers were by far the most effective way of keeping outbreaks at bay, and they have also helped with my sensitivity issues too. I used to have angry, reddened, spotty skin with huge patches of scaly dry skin. Sexy! However, since I made the (permanent) shift from foaming cleansers or facial washes, my outbreaks are minimal, and my face doesn't burn as soon as I even look at a mirror these days either.
The le Belle oil cleanser is a thick, yellow viscous oil, which doesn't emulsify with water, so I use this mainly at night, for a deep, deep cleanse, and a massage. I've found that it's also excellent for use with a Clarisonic as it provides plenty of slip, and doesn't just get absorbed into your skin as you do a thorough cleanse routine with it. The citrussy scent, whilst refreshing, isn't so sharp that it'll wake you up completely, don't worry. The cleanser is based on sunflower, sesame and castor oils, so it's good and nourishing. All le Belle skincare products are 100% plant derived and free from parabens.
But, the main reason I feel in love with the le Belle range is the ingenious packaging system behind it. The entire range is packaged in heavy, recycled, glass jars and bottles in a beautiful cerulean blue, making them a lovely addition to any bathroom. However, all the packaging is refillable - a bottle for life, as the le Belle website refers to it - and the refills are these handy pouches, cutting down on packaging and weight. They are also really handy for travel, I've discovered! They also cost 20% less than the original bottles and jars, which is a nice bonus too.
The Cleansing Oil in the bottle will cost you £24 - I've used mine a lot in the two months since it arrived, and I anticipate there is at least four months left in the bottle now - and the refill pouch will cost you £19.
