Pai skincare review

Pai skincare, who are an organic skincare brand certified by the Soil Association, sent me a sample set of a cleanser and two moisturisers in a cute little pouch for me to try*. 

I've been using this as a make up remover and it removes make up, including eye make up, very easily and gently without irritating the skin. I got a little in my eye and I didn't feel a thing!
The consistency is very light so the oils are absorbed quickly but my skin felt hydrated rather than greasy. However, because the product is absorbed quickly, I found that I had to use more of the product.

I've being using this on dry areas around my face, especially around my nose. Even though it has a thick consistency, it is absorbed very quickly and my skin felt softer from the first application.

As I'm using the Geranium & thistle cream on dry areas, which is much suitable as I wouldn't want blemishes to appear in the surrounding oily parts of my skin, I am using the macadamia and rose dry skin cream on my hands instead. Again, the cream is absorbed really quickly so I don't have to wait long for it to dry or end up with sticky hands. The sample pot is a great size to pop into my handbag too.

My favourite things about these products is the thick consistency that melts on my skin and how cold they are. And I love the mild rose smell, which is great because I don't like overpowering smells. I think these products have a lot of great properties and are truly of premium quality.

The cleanser costs £25 and the moisturisers cost between £19 and £26 so they aren't cheap. They are absolutely great products but I personally wouldn't spend that much on them. If you love premium skincare or are looking for something that would work on dry or irritated skin, then I'd recommend getting a free sample set and trying them out. You only have to pay for p&p.
