Perri Piper – Lemon Sugar Wax

We have a new website and Etsy store called Perri Piper where we are selling our lovely Lemon Sugar Wax. We are excited for you to try this impressive beauty product that we have been making and using ourselves for three years. Lemon Sugar Wax contains only three ingredients so it is ultra gentle on your skin and the environment.

Every jar is handmade in London by myself and Ali (my mum). We were inspired by ancient beauty practices and apothecarian packaging when making this so the wax is poured into glass jars and includes unbleached cotton strips (reusable) and wood spatulas. The product is so pure that we did not want to use any plastic packaging and microwaves for heating. Our glass jars simply sit in a sink of hot water and several minutes later the wax is soft and ready to use.

If you would like to find out more about the Lemon Sugar Wax, you can read further information at our website, Perri Piper or at our Etsy store.

Review of Suki Pure Facial Moisture – Balancing

Sometimes creamy moisturizers are not what your skin wants or needs, so maybe you should try an oil based moisturizer. Suki’s ‘Pure Facial Moisture – Balancing’ is a divine treat for the face with amazing organic ingredients such as antibacterial echinacea and lavender, soothing chamomile extract and antioxidant loaded rose extract. Don’t worry about looking oily either because the end result is very flattering, giving your skin a healthy glow. This product was previously known as Facial Moisture Serum with Blue Chamomile and Echinacea.
How to use: 1-2 drops on face and decollete

Feel on skin: Nourishing and hydrating feel of oil without the greasy residue

Scent: Fruity and pleasant chamomile scent with strong base notes of jojoba and other oils

Skin Types: All skin types but especially oily, acne prone and sensitive

Results: My skin lapped it up and the overall result was very flattering. Skin glows and looks enviously healthy. Very impressive.

Value for money: Admittedly over £20 is expensive for a moisturiser but it’s certainly not uncommon for most moisturisers these days to be in this price bracket. If you have the money to spend or just want to make wise purchases that your skin will thank you for, then Suki is definitely value for money.

Who would like it? Purists who want good quality and high performing products. Also women with recurring acne or oily skin (but my skin is normal / dry and it works well for me).

Would I buy it again? Yes. I like how healthy and good this moisturiser feels on the skin. The fact the ingredients are so good makes this product leap above other moisturiser options. It is also a good alternative or break from creamy moisturisers. While you could use an almond oil (I personally find it too shiny as a day moisturiser) for true purity and affordability, I think this is the first choice for when you want a serum type moisturiser.

Score: 10/10
