For those of you who don’t know, I suffer with Rosacea – in essence, redness of the skin. It can become inflamed and produce a burning sensation, particularly sensitive to UV rays.
So, I am always keen to discover new creams to help soothe and calm the redness and irritation, (going to the gym can be very embarrassing!) I discovered Peachy Fox London through Instagram, #peachyfoxlondon a natural, organic skin care brand for sensitive skin.
Of course, the use of natural ingredients is automatically appealing. Rosehip oil, chamomile and aloe vera are known as calming agents. Together, they sooth and soften the skin. I tested this product twice daily for over a week. Without a doubt, my skin was softer than ever and it did help to calm when my skin was burning. No cream will ever cure rosacea (yet!) But this did help to sooth.
It absorbed quickly, and the soft skin effect was instant. The only downside was that the smell was quite strong and sometimes, the pump didn’t work. Having said that, by the end of the week, I was used to the smell and it wasn’t as unpleasant.
I will be repurchasing this cream, because it does exactly what it says on the tin. With the added benefits of natural, organic, cruelty free ingredients. I like a brand that is concious of it’s productions.
Additionally, the price is cheaper than some of the leading brands (£15.95, through Amazon). I have paid £40 for a similar cream and not noticed a difference. If I could improve it in anyway, would be to add a UV protection. I would happily pay more for it to give this daily base.
