Skincare is one of those areas where I previously never really had a standout favourite. I always bought one brand at a time, or received gift packs as a present. Nothing ever really jumped out and grabbed me as being awesome for my skin, until I tried Delicious Skin.

I recently reviewed Delicious Skin and I’m still loving the beautiful smelling products. My skin has improved and I can’t see any signs of the dry skin I’d get on my forehead, which used to make it close to impossible for me to wear a powder foundation. You can read my review here.

Delicious Skin

Nicola Marie created Delicious Skin after researching all the nasties that go in to so many skincare products. Delicious Skin is 100% vegan, palm oil free and cruelty free. I’m only using a fraction of the products compared to what I’d use with other brands. To give you an idea, I required one big pump of my previous brand’s moisturiser to cover my face (and even then I had to add a little rosehip oil to make it feel like it was ‘working’). With Delicious Skin I only need less than a pea sized amount of the moisturiser.

The Deliciously Silky Lip Salves from Delicious Skin come in little tins rather than a traditional lip balm tube. Nicola Marie has chosen to use the tins in an effort to reduce plastic usage and to make sure empty packaging can be recycled or re-used. Due to health regulations, lip balm tubes can not be refilled or recycled so they end up as landfill. There is also concern with plastics and BPA leeching in to products. Happy Delicious Skin customers come up with interesting ways to re-use their empty jars!

Delicious Skin’s lip salves come in three gorgeous flavours: Cocoa Vanilla, Peppermint Vanilla and Chocolate Mint. I have the Cocoa Vanilla and love the smell. This is the first lip salve I have used where I can put a little on in the morning and don’t need to reapply for ages. At bed time, I put some on and wake up without the dry lips I’d often get from other lip balms.

You can order direct from the Delicious Skin website, or check for stockists. The Delicious Skin Facebook page is frequently updated so check in there to find out the latest! You can also catch Delicious Skin on Instagram.

Product Review: Delicious Skin

Delicious Skin

I love it when my skincare products run out, because it means shopping for new products! I haven’t been thrilled with the last two batches of skincare I’ve used, one being the Sukin facial moisturiser. I know others swear by it, but it left my face feeling tight and dry and I had to mix in some rosehip oil to make it work for me. Although that wasn’t a hassle and it only took an extra five or so seconds, I feel that if I’m going to spend money on something advertised as hydrating and suitable for my skin, I shouldn’t have to add other products to make it work for me!

Enter Delicious Skin. I first heard about Delicious Skin in vegan circles. Founded by Nicola Marie, Delicious Skin is 100% vegan and palm oil free and free of all those nasty known irritants and fillers often added to other products.

I ordered the Taster Pack as I was essentially on the hunt for new skincare which I knew may involve a bit of trial and error. My order was shipped quickly which is great when you’re really impatient for awesome sounding products to arrive:

Delicious Skin

The Taster Pack contains the Butter Cleanser, Supple Silk Serum, Exfoliating Mask, Moisturising Cream and the Lip Salve:

Delicious Skin

I have never had skincare that smells so good I want to eat it with a spoon. Seriously you guys, the scents are gorgeous. The Butter Cleanser contains tea tree, peppermint, lavender and chamomile essential oils. I love how this smells! I apply it to my skin and leave it for a few minutes, then wash it off with warm water and a soft face cloth.

After carefully drying my face, I apply a few drops of the Silk Serum. That’s all I need, just three or four drops. More delicious smells!

My skin does well with extra hydration so I follow with the Moisturising Cream. This smells like cocoa-vanilla cake frosting and I sometimes go and have a sniff, just because I can!

I use the Exfoliating Mask once a week, usually at the end of the week just to give myself a bit of pampering. So far I’ve mixed mine with water, but the Delicious Skin website suggests using mashed avocado and I’m looking forward to trying that. Containing bentonite clay, oats, almonds and vanilla powder, this is another product I really like.

Finally, the lip salve (balm). Another product I sit and sniff and this time I can kinda eat it, seeing as it’s a lip salve! I have the Cocoa Vanilla flavour, but other flavours are Peppermint Vanilla and Chocolate Mint.

My skin is looking and feeling great. No more little dry patches on my forehead, no more stretched-skin feeling after applying other-label moisturisers, no need to mix in other oils to make these work for me! I’m so happy with these Delicious Skin products and would happily buy a Taster Pack as a gift for a lucky someone!

Delicious Skin’s website currently lists one stockist in Sydney, though I purchased my order online directly from Delicious Skin. I’d love to see this lovely range sold in Melbourne!
