Bristol & Sussex Skin Care Review

Recently, it has become my mission to find a natural skin care line that is free of harsh chemicals.  Bristol & Sussex really came to the rescue during this search.  All of their products are made with vegan and organic ingredients, each with EWG Scores of 1.  They only use certified organic, premium food grade, cold pressed oils and 100% steam distilled therapeutic grade essential oils.

I have to say that it is very refreshing to look at an ingredient list and actually understand what is in it.  With most products, you can’t even pronounce half of the ingredients.

Their daily radiance set is comprised of three products – a hypoallergenic facial cleanser, pH and oil balancing facial moisturizer, and a deep conditioning facial oil.

Hypoallergenic Facial Cleanser

This cleanser was designed to gently remove environmental toxins and excess facial oil, and that it does! This is a foaming face wash that really gives you a deep cleaning.  One thing I can’t stand is when your face feels like it is not clean after washing, especially after wearing makeup all day and night.  It is quick to wash off and doesn’t leave any residue.

This face wash is great for anyone with oily or combination skin, or who needs a good cleanse.  Oh and it smells like you just walked out of the spa!

Ingredients:

Raw Unfiltered Aloe Vera Juice*, Decyl Glucoside (from coconut)**, Radish Root Ferment Filtrate**, Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide)**, Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Palmitate)**, MSM (Dimethyl Sulfone)**, Vitamin B5 (dl-Panthenol)**, Squalane**, Sea Kelp Bioferment**, Argan Oil*, Jojoba Oil*, Castor Oil*, Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil*, Rose Hip Seed Oil*, Safflower Oil*, Vitamin E (Tocopherol)**, Lavender Essential Oil*, Chamomile Essential Oil*, Rosemary Essential Oil*, Citric Acid* (from cane sugar)

pH and Oil Balancing Facial Moisturizer

Bristol and Sussex takes the time to make sure their products are pH balanced to prevent any breakouts.  If a skin care product isn’t balanced properly then the gross bacteria that causes breakouts will flourish – ew.  This moisturizer is very light and smells wonderful.  It is an excellent match to the face wash if you aren’t looking for a thick or oily moisturizer.

Ingredients:

Raw Unfiltered Aloe Vera Juice*, Squalane**, Argan Oil*, Jojoba Oil*, Castor Oil*, Shea Nut Oil*, Glyceryl Stearate**, Cetearyl Alcohol**, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate**, Radish Root Ferment Filtrate**, Sea Kelp Bioferment**, Ceramide NP**, Ceramide AP**, Ceramide EOP**, Phytosphingosine**, Cholesterol**, Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide)**, Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Palmitate)**, Hyaluronic Acid**, MSM**, Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil*, Rose Hip Seed Oil*, Safflower Oil*, Vitamin B5**, Vitamin E (Tocopherol)**, Lavender Essential Oil*, Chamomile Essential Oil*, Rosemary Essential Oil*, Citric Acid* (from cane sugar)

Deep Conditioning Facial Oil

This moisturizer is the ah-mazing if you have dry skin or need a serious hydration boost.  This is oil based, but luckily non-comedogenic so you don’t need to worry about breaking out.  It has a very high amount of diverse omega fatty acids, vitamin C & E, argan, jojoba, and age defying CoQ10.

I have combination skin and I don’t always love putting oils in my T zone, but this is my go-to when my cheeks and forehead are feeling dry.

Ingredients:

Squalane**, Argan Oil*, Jojoba Oil*, Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil*, Rosehip Seed Oil*, Safflower Oil*, Castor Oil**, CoEnzymeQ10**, Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Palmitate)**, Vitamin E (Tocopherol)**, Chamomile Essential Oil*, Lavender Essential Oil*, Rosemary Essential Oil*

**indicates plant derived ingredient
