*Features press samples

I love to use natural products where I can, so the addition of Willowberry Skincare to my daily routine has been welcomed with open arms, with my skin reaping the benefits! Launching in 2017, Willowberry is a natural skincare brand dedicated to protecting, nourishing and nurturing the skin with high-quality, natural ingredients rich in vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids our skin loves.

A review of the Willowberry Nutrient Boost Cleansing Balm
A review of the Willowberry Nutrient Boost Treatment Oil

I've been using the Willowberry Nutrient Boost Cleansing Balm (£27.95) as part of my evening cleansing routine for a few months now and for me, this is the star product of the range. With a nutritionally-rich formula that is 100% natural, it features a lovely selection of skin-loving ingredients; Chia Seed Oil, Rosehip Fruit Oil, natural Vitamin Oil, Jojoba Oil, Cocoa Seed Butter, Grapeseed Oil, Beeswax, Sunflower Seed Oil, Geranium Flower Essential Oil and Rosewood Essential Oil. The scent is very subtle and whilst I massage it into my skin, it leaves me feeling relaxed and pampered (I actually think the scent would make the most divine candle!), a lovely way to unwind after a busy day.

"A natural cleansing balm was an absolute must for the range, as it is such a luxurious form of cleansing and helps to hydrate the skin instead of leaving it feeling tight or uncomfortable. The beautiful rich, yellow colour of the balm comes from the Cocoa Butter we use,w hich is organic, raw, cold-pressed and food-grade to retaint he incredible amount of vitamins and antioxidants that Cocoa Butter offers, to make a real difference to the skin." - Jenni Retourné, Founder of Willowberry Skincare

Best suited to normal to dry skin, it works well to remove makeup, dirt and impurities from my skin and is incredibly gentle in doing so, the formula just right so as not to tug at my skin as I massage it in. A little goes a long way and it's very easy to rinse off with a warm muslin cloth. My skin loves this cleansing balm, instantaneously feeling soft, supple and looking healthier. This is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the best cleansing balms I have used - and I've tried my fair share over the years!

I apply the Willowberry Nutrient Boost Treatment Oil (£22.50) during my nightly skincare routine, as I love the way it effortlessly makes my skin look and feel better overnight when my skin is working hardest. It uses the same natural skin-loving ingredients as the cleanser, with the same beautifully soothing scent, working to nourish, repair and regenerate skin. I find 3-4 drops is more than enough for my face and neck, gently patting into my skin, making my skin feel beautiful to the touch. It's great for both morning and night use, working well under makeup too, lightweight and non-greasy, with no sticky residue left behind like some facial oils. Continued use has left my skin feeling plumper, looking more radiant and helped sort out any pesky dehydrated areas, leaving me with much happier skin overall.

"This natural face oil is the total hero product of the range – it gets rave reviews from customers, top bloggers and press. Because quite simply, it works wonders! The oil is ultra-light and easily absorbed (no mean feat in a facial oil) and is loaded with nutrients to feed the skin – you will see the difference it makes within days." - Jenni Retourné, Founder of Willowberry Skincare

The Willowberry Nutrient Boost Day Cream (£24.50) has been a perfect moisturiser for my morning routine, it's incredibly light-weight so feels very comfortable on the skin and sinks in beautifully, without leaving any residue whatsoever - which is great for days when you're applying makeup! It's not as hydrating as I usually opt for, but teamed with the treatment oil it works really well with my skin. Featuring the same ingredients as the Cleansing Balm and Treatment Oil, it also utilises Jojoba Oil, Orange Fruit Water and Sweet Almond Oil, with the same subtle spa-like scent. Although advertised as a day cream, it's also suitable for an evening moisturiser and like all products in the Willowberry range, is best suited to normal and dry skin types.

"When creating a face moisturiser it was important to me that it was light and easily absorbed, yet ultra-hydrating, and so this is exactly what we created. We also managed to create a moisturiser that is 100% natural/naturally-derived, which is something I am really proud of." - Jenni Retourné, Founder of Willowberry Skincare

My skin adores the Willowberry Skincare range and I think it's a fantastic range for anyone looking to add more natural products into their routine. The Cleansing Balm is a must-have for me now and the Treatment Oil has been my top recommendation for friends and family looking to add a new oil into their skincare stash. I can't wait to see this brand grow and I am secretly hoping to see an eye cream join the range soon.
