With so many skincare brands available it's often hard to know which one to opt for. And with the shelves of shops fit to burst with choice, it can be all too easy to choose the most brightly packaged, or the one that's on offer, rather than taking time to select one that's right for our skin type.
Ruby Red Cosmetics was founded in 2008 by Mike and Martine Ruby who combined their passion for botanical ingredients with their love for design to create a brand whose core belief centred around natural products Having previously worked for cosmetics giant Elizabeth Arden, it was an eighteen month sabbatical around SE Asia that inspired Martine to start Ruby Red, having witnessed the way in which natural ingredients were used in everyday life without a chemical substitute.
And so they created a fabulous product range suitable for all types of skin, including those who are sensitive to harsh chemicals and synthetics. Botanical ingredients are used, which means all of Ruby Red’s products are free from harsh chemicals, parabens, perfumes and dyes and they are never tested on animals so you can rest assured that their products really are top notch.
The Reviving Body Wash that we at The Amazing Blog tried out was every bit as wonderful as it sounded. Made from the natural cleansing foaming agents of coconut and corn with Aloe Vera Leaf extracts, it is rich in natural polysaccharides which soften and soothes skin, and certainly left ours in butter-soft condition. With fresh aromas of Key Lime, sweet Red Mandarin, crushed Coriander and Wild Cedarwood, this really is a treat for your skin. Available online from the Ruby Red Shop, the Reviving Body Cleanser costs £16 for 200ml and £32 for 500ml – it's a substantial bottle and will last and last so a worthy investment for such a wonderful cleanser!
