I had been following The Buddha Beauty Company on twitter for quite a while because they are BUAV approved, but I hadn't actually tried any of their products. A few months ago they offered to send products out for bloggers to try and I put myself forward. I'm not sure what the others got but I was sent The Chamomile & Jasmine Facial Night Cream. I was really pleased to receive this as the last night cream I bought (No7) burned my face a little bit... Not the best.
I have had this since about February but obviously, as with all skincare items, I wanted to try it out for a while first to get an idea of how it works with my skin before reviewing it.
As well as being cruelty free, Buddha Beauty are also vegan and contain organic essential oils which is great! They don't use SLS or parabens in their products, which I prefer to avoid when I can! The night cream is £12 for 50ml and is available on a few different sites including their own here. Unfortunately I can't seem to find the ingredients on their website so I've listed them for you below:
Aqua, Aloe barbadensis Leaf Juice, Borago officinalis Seed Oil, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol Dimethicone, Stearic Acid, Magnesium Aluminium Silicate, Anthemis nobilis Flower Extract, Lavandula angustifolia Flower Extract, Panax ginseng Root Extract, Symphytum officinale Root Extract, Sodium PCA, Tocopheryl Acetate, Alcohol Denat, Disodium EDTA, Triethanolamine, Citric Acid, Phenoxyethanol Ethylhexylglycerin, Methylisothiazolinone.
So firstly, this smells so good! I was worried that the jasmine and camomile scent would be overwhelming but in fact it is lovely, and perfect for bedtime as it's so soothing and relaxing. The cream itself feels nice on the skin, you don't need to use much and it doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy. I also noticed that in the morning when I wash my face, I can't feel it sort of 'washing off' like I have done with other moisturisers - I have no idea what this means but it makes me think that it soaks in well and isn't just sitting on my face haha!
Personally I haven't noticed any big changes in my skin while using this but I have fairly normal skin with combination tendencies! What I can say is that I have had a couple of small dry patches and they would clear up within 2 days, however I can't say definitively that the night cream alone cleared it up as I use a moisturiser in the morning, and my cleanser is hydrating too.
Overall I am really pleased I had the chance to try this, I think £12 is a great price and would definitely buy it myself. Also I think it'll last ages as the photo above is quite recent and as you can see I've only just started to make a dent in it! I'll be looking to The Buddha Beauty Company the next time I need some new skincare - which admittedly probably won't be for a rather long time!! I had a snoop on their website and they also sell candles and bath bombs along side the usual skincare items. Click here for The Buddha Beauty Company website - they have free UK delivery, yass!
