Here at The Amazing Blog, we like to think we know our skincare. But although Ochre Body & Skin is an exciting discovery for us, it turns out that the use of ochre is far from new. Long ago, ochre pigment was a vital ingredient in one of the first natural, protective moisturisers. Although a lot more advanced than their namesake predecessor, Ochre Body & Skin still maintain this natural and healthy outlook. So when we received their Cherish and Awaken products to try out, we were happy to know that we would be sampling only the most organic skincare.
We tried the Body Wash and Body Lotion from two of Ochre's gentle collections. The first, Cherish, is a balancing range, featuring cedarwood and patchouli, which showcases some wonderfully soothing skincare. Although we enjoyed using the Cherish products, it was the second collection, Awaken, that really impressed us. The entire Awaken range is designed to tone and detoxify with its delicious lemon and black pepper formula. A gorgeous soft scent with a little zing to it, the Body Wash lathers really nicely. Sea minerals act to moisturise and enrich the skin, whilst the addition of citric acid stimulates collagen production, helping to boost radiance and slow signs of aging. The Body Lotion, with its combination of softening sweet almond oil and invigorating essential oils, left my skin feeling soft and velvety, with a subtle, long lasting scent. After using this delightful skincare, we're sure we'll be Ochre fans for life.
Ochre have since expanded their line to include two more wonderful skincare collections, as well as a selection of haircare. After our fantastic experience with Cherish and Awaken, we're excited to sample the other skin loving products on offer. The Cherish and Awaken products are available to buy here, with the Body Wash costing £14 and the Lotion, £18.
