Meet Skin Guru; a beautiful, organic range of skincare products that I’m so glad I’ve found. Organic content is not a deal breaker to me – products, organic or not, have to perform really well no matter what their credentials, and I think the star product from Skin Guru is the Facial Cleansing Oil. I know that listed ingredients is important for those who really care about what’s in their beauty products and on the Skin Guru website, every product has a thorough breakdown of what it contains.
So, the Facial Oil (£32). A little goes a long way which is important for value for money; it glides over the skin and because it’s such a light and gentle feeling oil, it makes you want to massage and massage, which is only ever a good thing. Once it’s wiped away with warm water on a cleansing cloth, there is not one nano-cell of dryness – my skin felt supple and soft. After that, I added the Nourishing Facial Serum (£65) which actually feels more like an oil, and again, massaged really well. The serum doesn’t feel sticky or heavy but does have an oil-like feeling on the skin.
£65 is a lot for a skin care product, but when you look at the ingredient listing it does explain the price tag. Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil*, Rosa Rubginosa Seed Oil*, Borago Officinalis Seed Oil*, Simmondsia chinensis Seed Oil*, Cucurbita Pepo Seed Oil*, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopherol, Pogostemon Cablin, Rosa damascene Flower Oil, Santalum album, Boswellia Carterii, Citral, Citronellol, Limonene, Eugenol, Farnesol, Geraniol, and Linalool, of which the * ingredients are certified organic. When I woke in the morning, I was really pleased that my skin felt extremely soft, and more importantly, on a night when the central heating was accidentally on all night (boiling!) my skin was totally moisturised and didn’t show a shred of dryness.
There’s also a Hydrating Mist (£22) which over-delivers on product (wet-face!) and could do with the spray being a little bit finer, but it smells beautiful – rosy – and is a lovely pep up, delivering a cooling action. Claims on this range are predominantly anti-ageing, with ingredients targeting specific skin issues around that concern; reducing fine lines, reducing age spots and repairing cellular damage. I can’t prove it, but I can believe it, and ultimately, that’s sort of what your skincare is about – you need to have something you have faith in.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
So, I can’t recommend this range highly enough – there is nothing not to like about this antioxidant and Omega packed collection. You can find it HERE.
