Laidbare Skincare Review

Subscribing to a monthly Cruelty Free beauty box means I get to try out a variety of products and brands. I have been subscribed to the Love Lula beauty box for around a year and during this time, I have discovered so many lovely products. You often see the same brands popping up and that's great if you enjoyed one of their products from a previous box. These Laidbare products were all from the Love Lula box over the last year and I've saved these to write an honest review.

I've never been a massive fan of facial toner's but I couldn't praise this 2 in 1 enough. On a full coverage make-up day, I use the Kat Von D Tattoo Lock-It Foundation and if you have worn this foundation, you'll know the staying power of it and that includes trying to wash it off! This gel formula cuts through the foundation and you're instantly able to wipe it away. I love the juicy subtle apple scent. You really don't need a lot of product so I imagine this tube will last a good while. I use this once a day and finish off with a facial moisturiser. I will certainly be repurchasing once this runs out.

This product contains Brazil Nut Extract so if you have a nut allergy, please bare this in mind. 

I'm a big fan of face masks and for me, it's the ultimate treat and a great way to relax. This mask is definitely more gentle than others I've used. It's creamy, soft consistency glides onto the face and neck with ease. It has a natural, gentle exfoliant which I think is the Japanese Seaweed. As for pore minimisation, I haven't really noticed a difference. I have very large pores and I prefer a harder exfoliation for this area. Although the mask says it suits Oily/Combo skin, it's great for dry skin as well as it's so moisturising. This is a good everyday, gentle face mask to help replenish moisture.

This product contains Palm Oil, see my thoughts below.

As a Chronic Illness sufferer, I often have sleepless nights and the dark eye circles to go with it. I have sensitive under eyes and in the past, certain eye creams have stung and caused redness. This eye cream is gentle and soaks in quickly, offering intense moisture. The magic ingredient, Buckwheat is known to help reduce puffiness and lighten dark circles. I dab a small amount underneath my eyes and towards the corners every night and it really does help to diminish the dark circles.

Please note this product contains Palm Oil, see my thoughts below.

Sadly, as the Eye Cream and Face Mask both contain Palm Oil (which is a massive shame), I will not be repurchasing as I'm starting to reduce the use of Palm Oil in my home. Unfortunately it's used widely in food and beauty products so it can be very difficult to completely cut it out of our lives. This shouldn't and isn't meant to discourage you, every small change helps and I hope by making these changes that unethical Palm Oil will one day be a thing of the past.

I'd love to hear you thoughts on the products I've reviewed and your views on Palm Oil. Please leave a comment below.

  1. I'm not keen on the palm oil either, which is a shame because I really like the mask and the eye cream! I haven't tried the toner yet but my current morning cleanser has just run out so I'll start using it soon, the apple scent sounds lovely :) xx
