20th June 2023

Discover the secrets of Cornish skincare

Cornwall’s unique ecosystem serves as a rich source of inspiration for the region’s skincare producers. With its nutrient-packed soil, abundant flora, and proximity to the sea, Cornwall provides the perfect environment for cultivating skin-loving botanicals – which Cornish skincare producers use in their products to nourish and heal the skin. They’re experts at harnessing the power of nature, and trust us, when you start using Cornish skincare you’ll never look back!

Radiant and refreshed

Start your day off well with Bloomtown’s The Grove: Blood Orange & Pink Grapefruit Sugar Scrub. Great for shower time, this invigorating, 3 in 1 formula cleanses, exfoliates, and moisturises helping you feel revitalised with beautifully soft skin.

Made by hand using British fine sugar, plant oils, and botanicals, this vegan formula gives just the right amount of exfoliation with its not-too-coarse natural exfoliants that gently remove dead skin cells and leave your skin healthy and glowing.  

Washing off easily and brimming with soothing, skin-kind ingredients such as mango butter, coconut extract, vitamin E, and mineral-rich Kaolin and Red Clays – you’ll emerge from the shower feeling like you’ve just been to the spa.

Fresh and effective protection

We LOVE Scence’s Mellow Sage Deodorant Balm which contains all-natural ingredients to keep you protected all day long.

This silky deodorant glides on easily and its gentle but powerful formulation is both transparent and non-sticky.

Free of nasties, and formulated with natural magnesium to deodorise, organic arrowroot to absorb moisture, soothing oils to care for the skin, and a sweet blend of clary sage and ylang-ylang for a lovely scent, this stick of balm is even trusted by the most active sports people!

Feed the skin

Reduce fine lines and heal skin blemishes with Sōlseed’s Nourishing Sensitive Face Serum. This magic oil nurtures sensitive skin with a blend of rose hip, hemp, argan, jojoba, apricot kernel, borage, and broccoli seed oils – and the maker uses as many homegrown products as possible.

High in vitamins D3, C & E, this organic elixir is wonderful to apply following a day in the sunshine, or after a long soak in the bath. Containing an array of citrus-based essential oils like mandarin, orange, and may chang blended with sweet marjoram – this serum also smells like paradise!

Luxurious shaving

Grooming time is about to get a whole lot more indulgent with Kelsey Cornish’s Smokey Oak Whipped Shaving Cream. Light, fluffy, and buttery soft, this natural, vegan shaving cream can be applied by hand or with a shaving brush and lathers up to a lavish foam.

Your shaving experience is elevated with a relaxing fragrance of warm and spicy smoked oak, and the face is left soft, soothed, and moisturised for a professional feeling shave.
