Thea Skincare Brand Review



After responding to a call on Twitter for beauty bloggers by Thea Skincare, I was sent three samples from their Fruit Enzyme range - a Crème Cleanser, Exfoliator, and Crème Moisturiser. This brand has won the Skinsmatters Gold Award, Green Parent Beauty award and are vegan and cruelty free, with none of their products having been tested on animals. All products are free from parabens, phthalate, sulphate, artificial fragrances, and  petroleum based ingredients.

The products mentioned in this review can be bought separately or as part of a starter set (which also includes a toner) for £32.95. Individually, they cost between £20-£30 which, whilst fairly expensive compared to other similar products, is affordable considering they are of a more high-end quality. Unsurprisingly, these products all had a fruity, citrusy scent (particularly the cleanser). Thea Skincare recommends them for all skin types, excepting hyper-sensitive skin and I did not experience any breakouts or irritation after using them.

Creme Cleanser - £21.95 for a 100ml bottle
I found that this cleanser quickly and easily removed my makeup although removing my mascara was a little more of a struggle. However, in the past I would always need to use a separate eye makeup remover so I am pretty impressed that this cleanser was able to remove both my eye and face makeup. It didn't remove my makeup quite as well as the Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm which I recently reviewed, however I found the consistency to be much easier to work with and take off of my face.

Exfoliator - £24.95 for a 50ml tub
This exfoliator was probably my favourite of the products I was sent. In the past, I've found facial exfoliators to contain very little exfoliating beads and thus really fail at scrubbing off dead and dry skin. However, this was not at all the case with this one which left my skin feeling noticeably soft and smoother after only one use. Despite this the beads are not too harsh as they are quite fine, although I would advise those with very sensitive skin to be gentle when using this product.

Creme Moisturiser - £29.95 for a 100ml bottle
As someone that can get quite dry skin due to wearing foundation on a daily basis, I found this product to leave my skin moisturised and soft. It has a good consistency and soaks well into the skin without leaving it feeling oily or shiny.

  11. Great article with unimaginable tips. I always take care of my eyes with Sakare's anti-wrinkle eye cream. It really proved helpful to reduce my dark circle and wrinkles.
