Fruit based luxury skincare

For the past couple of months, I've been using some fruit based skincare from Bamford.

Founded by Lady Carole Bamford, the brand ethos is to make products sourced as naturally as possible that deliver exceptional results. I’ve used two pieces from the line and haven’t been disappointed.

Exfoliating Mask, £60
Like my favourite exfoliators, this mask gently exfoliates using natural fruit enzymes as opposed to harsh scrubs or beads. Light and gel-like in texture, this sits on the skin for 8-10 minutes and then rinses with hot water. The smell is my favourite thing about this; clean and zesty. And I know that the proof should be in the pudding, but it has to be said that the packaging of this is divine, complete with a little wooden spatula in the shape of a heart. Applied once per week, this gave clarity to my skin, didn’t aggravate my redness and helped to decongest breakouts. This really brings brightness and glow to the skin. Ingredients include apple, lemon and red grape.

Serum, £90
This potent blend helped to hydrate and brighten my skin, again without aggravating my redness. The strawberry seed oil in the formula is very hydrating, making this a wonderful winter skin option and a brilliant pick-me-up for hungover skin. Many fruits again make the composition of this, helping to firm the skin and protect against environmental aggressors. What I loved about this is that compared to lots of serums it was much richer in consistency; this could be massaged into the skin for quite some time and left a hydrating residue.

My first foray into Bamford, I had my good friend try the range alongside me to hear her thoughts. Jane agreed that the scent was a huge pull in the enjoyment of using this, and both of us were mesmerised by the packaging. Each product is enveloped in a fold out, floral box, which unfolds to reveal a beautiful forestry pattern entwined with quotes about the brand.

Something different and quaint from the beauty hall, I really feel that Bamford are going to be one to watch. As a gift idea, anything from the range would make a beautiful present.
