Multipurpose Beauty: Beauty Cleanse Mean Green Superfood Drops & Carrot Algae Marine Drops review #LessIsMore

Thursday 19 November 2020

Multipurpose beauty has always caught my eye and with many consumers shifting their focus to a 'less is more' approach to shopping, it seems that most of us are looking for hardworking products that won't clutter up our bathrooms and vanity tables. So let me introduce you to Beauty Cleanse and their very clever multipurpose skincare drops.

If you haven't heard of Beauty Cleanse before, it might be because they changed their name from 'WhackIt Beauty' last year. This rebrand suits the London based indie company perfectly and gives them a much more sophisticated appeal for the luxury green beauty market. Their products speak for themselves though as they've been shortlisted for numerous industry awards, and a quick scroll through my social media feeds often sees them pop up now and then, so they're certainly a brand that has a buzz about them.

Beauty Cleanse is on a mission to streamline our often confusing and needlessly cluttered skincare routines with simpler but still effective formulas. Their ethos is declared loud and proud on their website; all products are handmade in the UK with 100% natural and organic ingredients, certified cruelty-free and vegan-friendly with a strong emphasis on sustainability (all packaging is either 100% recyclable, upcycled or biodegradable).

I've put Beauty Cleanse's only two releases to the test; the Mean Green Superfood Drops and Carrot Algae Marine Drops.

Beauty Cleanse Mean Green Superfood Drops* (20ml, £45, link)

Suitable for all skin and hair types, Mean Green Superfood Drops are a gender-neutral 'serum-in-oil, with the name taking inspiration from the popular green juice which is at the core of many health and wellness circles. The INCI list reads like a power smoothie menu with Organic Broccoli Seed Oil forming the base, which is then blended with the likes of Organic Rosehip Oil, Olive Squalane Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Red Raspberry Seed Oil, Organic Tamanu Seed Oil, Organic Pomegranate Seed Oil, Organic Chia Seed, Organic Macadamia Nut Oil and Vitamin E.

The result is a super-rich and nutritious product which is absolutely packed with antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids (Omegas 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9 are present) that are capable of delivering some serious hydration and protection for both skin and hair. And being a 'serum-in-oil' means the formula is surprisingly lightweight and non-greasy so it can easily balance troublesome oily skin types, whilst keeping dry and more mature skin happy and healthy at the same time.

How To Use?

You can use this as a Makeup PrimerFacial Oil (AM or PM or both)Nail & Cuticle OilHair Styling and Leave-in Treatment and it can be added directly to your favourite moisturisers to give them an extra boost. I've tested it out as all of the above and can say that it does work incredibly well as a Facial Oil treatment, a Nail & Cuticle Oil and as a Hair Oil Treatment. I found it also combat flyaways and frizz the same as any other hair oil does, but I still prefer using a separate Makeup Primer as I personally find cream-based textures give my oily/combination skin a better finish overall. 

Beauty Cleanse Carrot Algae Marine Drops* (20ml, £45, link)

Whilst the Mean Green Superfood Drops can be used to replace both skin and haircare products, the Carrot Algae Marine Drops are much better suited for just skincare purposes and its innovative formula is targeted at addressing the first signs of ageing in particular. If like me, you enjoy spending time doing home facial massages, I feel that you'll definitely love the Carrot Algae Marine Drops.

In addition to the anti-ageing benefits, this serum-in-oil has been developed using COSMOS certified glucocorticoid technology with Marine Plankton extract which helps to block the effects of the stress hormone, cortisol, wreaking havoc on your skin. Those who have undergone a stressful time in their life will be able to appreciate this more because if you've ever looked in the mirror and suddenly seen lots of extra fine lines and wrinkles show up after a difficult period, you'll know what I mean!

Elsewhere in the formula, there are natural alternatives to synthethic Retinol found in the wild-harvested, cold-pressed Carrot and Rosehip Oils, and skincare favourites Squalene and Camellia Seed Oils help to boost elasticity and firmness. All of the ingredients have been carefully chosen to be suitable for sensitive skin types including for eczema and rosacea, so if you find that you can't use synthethic anti-ageing facial oils, this is a wonderful natural alternative to try instead.

How To Use?

Carrot Algae Marine Drops can be used as an intensive Night Serum, for Facial and Neck massages, as an anti-ageing Eye Serum and it can be added to your favourite morning moisturiser to give an extra boost of protection against the harsh winter elements. I'm pleased to say that it worked well in all the above methods and could easily be used as an all-in-one anti-ageing treatment.

I would happily recommend both products to anyone who wants to streamline their bathroom cabinet and although the initial cost is expensive, they are great value for money in the long term as a little goes a long way as the formulas are so concentrated.
