About Faith in Nature products
Faith in Nature was founded in the 1970s in Scotland, on the belief that natural, ethical, products should be available to everyone. The brand advertises itself as vegan and cruelty free, including recycled and recyclable containers. Two of our writers have tried and tested the products to see if their natural products do the job. (The BritMums reviewers were provided the products free to test and review. All opinions are the reviewer’s own.)
Joanne Dewberry reviews Faith in Nature Facial Wash
BritMums writer Joanne Dewberry tried out the Faith in Nature skincare. Here she gives her verdict:
Like, everyone, I’ve really been thinking a lot more about the products we use around the house, what we eat, where it comes from and being more eco-friendly. I’ve heard of Faith in Nature products before, as many of the plastic-free shops locally have refill stations. This means you can bring your empty bottles (or any container) to certain shops and fill up with your favourite shampoo, conditioner, laundry detergent, and body washes etc … eliminating single-use plastics.
Faith in Nature also use organic ingredients and are vegan-friendly which again I’m interested in. Small steps in the right direction.
Rejuvenating Facial Wash
I have really dry skin and struggle to find creams that don’t aggravate it, especially if they are heavily perfumed. As I’m nearly 40, anything with the word rejuvenating in catches my eye too! The Rejuvenating Facial Wash is enriched with organic aloe vera as well as being hypoallergenic and paraben-free.
This face wash is a thin, creamy milk, which lathers a little but is incredibly nourishing. I usually use something more abrasive and have terribly dry skin but since using this facial wash everyday, my skin feels more hydrated. I haven’t yet woken up looking 21 but there’s still time! One pump is more than enough to wash your face and my hands have felt lovely too.
I’ll be making it a staple in my skincare routine.— Joanne Dewberry
At £6.25 per bottle (150ml), it’s at the pricer end for a face wash I’ve used such a minimal amount in the last 2 weeks that I would recommend to others. The rejuvenating face wash has a soft mild scent and is part of the vegan-friendly range at Faith in Nature. I’ll be making it a staple in my skincare routine.
Intensive Moisturising Cream
I teamed up the Rejuvenating Face Wash with the Intensive Moisturising Cream, which is enriched with organic ginkgo biloba. It also includes olive oil, which helps to restore your natural skin balance. It’s quite thick and the pump lets out a small amount. If you massage it into your face and neck, you do need more like 2 or 3 pumps.
However, having said that, for me the citrus/perfume scent was a little overpowering therefore I tend to just massage into my forehead and cheeks. Again at £6.65 for 50ml, it’s expensive compared to others on the high street. I won’t be replacing it once it’s all gone.
I also gave the Green Tea and Aloe Vera Natural Deodorant a test drive. I wasn’t a massive fan. The rollerball is quite small and I seemed to be rubbing it under my arm for ages. For me, it had a really pungent vinegar smell which I didn’t like and I ended up wearing a lot of perfume to hide it.
My 11-year-old daughter, however, has just started to wear deodorant and as this is natural, vegan-friendly and free of nasties (parabens, alcohol, aluminum chlorohydrate) it seems like the perfect starter deodorant for her. She has been more than happy with it. It makes her feel more grown-up.
The natural deodorant is an eco-conscious refill (unlike the face wash and moisturiser). By unscrewing the bottom you expose a bottle which can be refilled. Faith in Nature also do a Chamomile Aloe Vera Roll-on Deodorant — it’d be nice to give that a whirl too. At £3.99, it is expensive but I like the idea that you can refill rather than buying more single-use plastic.
