I recently met siam botanicals through Twitter. Siam botanicals is a beauty skincare company based in Thailand that have created 100% natural face and body skincare beauty products (face cleansers, oils, body washes, bath salts, body scrubs, hair care...). They have used the finest botanical oils in their product composition. Needless to mention that none of their products contain mineral oil, SLS, propylene glycol or artificial fragances.
On their website/webshop they offer, besides their own ranges, also some pure ingredients such as aloe vera or raw organic oils (moringa or tamanau). They even sell various interesting beauty accessories and that is very helpful if you are a fan of DIY beauty recipes!
I was delighted that they sent me a fantastic sample collection for face, hair and body.
First impression: loving the really exotic emballage and cannot wait to try all these goodies!
In this post I will review the face kit which includes (see below):
- Honey and Rose face polish
- White treatment flannel
- Rose water toning mist
- Replenish and the Natural balance face serums
(Bodycare/haircare review will come in a second post)
Wrapped in a lovely breaded little box, the face care samples were ready to be used.
Honey and Rose face polish feels very natural and fresh. The tiny grains of Siamese organic sugar gently remove impurities and build-ups without stripping the natural oils of the skin. Pure honey is soothing and hydrating. This face polish can be used on any skin type once or twice per week. The polish does not feel rough, but rather gentle - it almost glides on the skin. There is also a pleasant scent of honey and rose, which feels gorgeous on the skin.
The White treatment flannel helps to smooth away dirt/dead cells and even the complexion.
The Rose flower toning mist is highly refreshing. It soothes and invigorates the skin. It also acts as an excellent primer for moisture and serum/oils skin treatment. I spritz 3/4 times onto my cleansed face. As you may know, I adore rose water. See here here why!
The Face replenish and Natural balance face serums both contain the signature ingredient of siam botanicals, the rice bran oil, which is widely used in Asian countries for its brightening and hydrating properties.
Balance face oil is ideal for combination/oily skin type. It contains a lovely aromatic blend of nurturing oils (rice bran oil, grapeseed, sesame) and purifying essential oils (lavander and grapefruit). I love to apply it in the evening and let the skin benefit from all the nutrients overnight. This oil is light and well absorbed. The scent is divine: fresh, herbal, smooth. A favorite for me :-).
The Replenish oil is designed to bring vitality to tired and dull-looking skins. Along with argan and moringa oils, the blend also features invigorating juniper berry and patchouli essential oils. I use it occasionnaly when I want to stimulate face regeneration functions. The texture is slighlty heavier than the Balance oil. But that is fine with me as I only use face oils in the evening.
As an overall, I really enjoyed using siam botanicals face products and if you are a fan of natural goodies with a touch of exotism, I really encourage you to try them! Affordable price as well, which is a great bonus too!
