Vegan-Friendly Green Beauty handmade in Devon
Moksa cleansing oil with lavender and chamomile.
I'm so pleased I found this gorgeous little skincare product. It was sent to me in my subscription box from Sage and Stars. It is affordable and handmade in the UK. Their cleansing oil is £9.00 and comes in a lovely glass bottle with pipette dropper.
Recently I have distanced myself from the larger beauty brands, I find myself searching out smaller more unique brands that have an ethos I relate to. I am increasing bored by well-known brands with their uninteresting advertising and the lack of new content. They seem to be so behind and are missing the key points - with what we actually want. We don't want to be bombarded with unrealistic images of women, photoshopped skin, celebrity endorsement and mass-produced products.
Obviously, we want less packaging, we want fresher-smaller batches, ethically sourced ingredients with more plants, fewer chemicals that are well known for being harmful and toxic to our skin and cruelty-free products.
”Here at Moksa we’re incredibly passionate about only using pure, plant based, nutrient dense and ethically sourced ingredients for our powerful and unique blends, harnessing the natural potency of the plant for maximum benefit for your skin.
Our entire range is vegan friendly, cruelty free, completely natural and free from any parabens, sulphates, petrochemicals (mineral oils), fillers, SLS or any other ingredient that can be toxic for your skin.
We ensure each ingredient added is used with a specific intention so everything in the blend has its own specific job; from anti-ageing and nourishing to soothing skin and calming the mind.
Each product is lovingly handcrafted in small batches in my studio here in rural Devon. This ensures the quality and utmost freshness of each and every item that is then hand packed and delivered to you.
I really hope you enjoy using them as much as I enjoy creating and making them.”
A calming cleanser that gently removes impurities, excess oil and makeup. Perfect for all skin types, even sensitive skin.
Two of the most gentle essential oils out there, lavender and chamomile work in perfect harmony to cleanse and soothe skin, along with organic jojoba oil which is the closest product in nature to our own skin sebum.
Our cleansing oil also contains Bergamot which is known as a natural cleanser and works to drive out excess oils, dirt and pollution from deep within the pores to keep skin looking flawless.
Our Bergamot oil is always FCF free as it is the safest version to use.
The Moksa Cleansing Ritual / It is a common misconception that putting oil on your skin makes your skin oily - this couldn't be further from the truth. Your skin needs oil and by cleansing with an oil cleanser and following with a facial oil this helps to balance out the skin's natural oil levels. The principle is that oil dissolves oil, so the cleansing oil actually breaks down the dirt and grime in your face without stripping it of its natural lipids.
That squeaky clean feeling you get with a lot of cleansers is because you're actually stripping your skin of its natural oil, making it work extra hard to try and produce more - having completely the opposite desired effect!
Try our cleansing ritual to really balance and calm your skin.
Breathe / Pour a small amount of cleansing oil into your palm and gently rub between hands. Cup your hands over your face, close your eyes and breathe deeply and slowly into your hands a few times and really feel the calming and euphoric effects of the lavender and chamomile.
Massage / Once you've calmed your mind, keeping your eyes gently closed, massage the oil into the face in upward circular movements really working into your face and pores. Be extra careful around the eye area but with your ring fingers just lightly massage into lashes to encourage the removal of any eye makeup.
Steam / Taking a cotton face cloth, run it under very warm water, squeeze out any excess water and place gently over whole face until it cools. This steaming method really helps to open the pores, allowing the oil to work its magic at removing all those impurities. Repeat as you feel necessary and really take your time, this is the relaxing bit!
Cleanse / Now the oil has had time to really work into the skin, take your cloth and using the slightly rough, exfoliating side, gently wipe away all traces of the day from your face. To finish, use the lovely super soft side around the eyes and again over the face.
For really fab results we like to spritz with a little Wild Rose Toning Mist, gently pressing into skin, before applying a few drops of Wild Rose Facial Elixir. This is when you will really feel how silky soft your skin is!
