Skincare Review: Neal's Yard Power Berry Range

Eek! First of all, I'd like to apologize for my lack of blog posting, I have just been so busy but I do promise to improve very soon!

When I fall in love with a product, I  tend to stick with it. This was the case with the Liz Earle skincare range. Then after a while, I might feel intrigued to experiment and give something else a go, in this case it was the Neal's Yard 'Power Berry' skincare range.

Lesson learnt? To stay with what you're used to. However, I do have some good things to say..

As I've said before, I'm a complete sucker to any thing that is organic or made from as many natural ingredients as possible, so when I saw this range online, claiming to be paraben, sulphate and silicone free, I automatically added it to my shopping cart and handed over my card details, barely containing my excitement for when they would arrive!

I purchased the 'Power Berry Facial Wash' and this was probably the product I was most interested in as I have always been a 'creamy cleanser' kind of girl! First impressions? I was impressed! I loved the tinted blue glass packaging and the smell of mixed berries was just like summer in a bottle! 
When dispensed, the wash is of a liquid gel consistency, which lathers up into a creamy milk when applied to the skin with water.
After using it for a while, I quickly began to notice how much it was actually drying out my skin, it also made my eyes really stingy and sore, making me wonder what actually is in it..

I also got the 'Power Berry Moisturising Lotion' a really light, non greasy moisturiser, which I was suprisingly satisfied with. It again had the delicious scent and seemed to compensate for my dry, flaky skin after using the wash.

Finally, I bought the 'Power Berry Facial Mask' which was highly recommended as a hydrating face mask by Natural Health in their 2010 Beauty Awards. Containing a unique formula of acai, bilberry, cranberry and grape, the mask has a light, refreshing, gel-like texture, which is slightly sticky. As it is washed off, it is turned it into a mild, milky exfoliater with the help of the grainy berry seeds! I love this product because you are actually getting two products for the price of one and I instantly notice a difference in my skin after use, it feels fresh, glowy and radiant!

Over all, I feel I got my moneys worth from the mask and the moisturising lotion, but did not enjoy using the wash at all. I am quite happily going to use them up and then stick to my trusty Liz Earle range!

What skin care products do you guys use? Have you tried this range before?
