Cosima Skincare Review + GIVEAWAY

The past week or so I have had the privilege of trying out two beautiful natural skincare products from Cosima Skincare.  Cosima is a new brand on the market founded by Angela Tyler, which has been developed from many years of research prompted by noticing that many 'natural' brands contained only 1 or 2 natural ingredients in a mix of other chemicals.  Cosima is 100% Australian owned and made, and guarantees to fight the visible signs of aging (and other skin related problems) using the highest quality natural, organic ingredients packed with active compounds with no fillers or other synthetic chemicals.  Which all sounds very exciting and completely suits my personal and business philosophy.

The first product I have been trying out is the Gentle Foaming Cleanser - This is a lovely light foaming cleanser that is surprisingly effective.  Gentle enough to use morning and night without irritation, yet removed my light make-up cover without trouble.  I love that this cleanser contains papaya as a gentle exfoliant and you can feel the light tingle when its on your skin.  The smell is also divine, sweet and natural (honeysuckle essential oil is listed on the ingredients list).  Big thumbs up on this product for me.
 
I also have been using the Flawless Eye Cream - this is described as a luxurious eye cream containing Myoxinol ("Nature's Botox") to help achieve flawless eyes without injections.  The first thing I really liked about this product was the airless pump packaging.  You might think this is a silly comment, but I'm quite averse to having to stick my fingers in skincare products and contaminating them every time you use them.  This eye cream is a lovely almost gel-like product that you only need a tiny amount of (I actually have to be careful not to pump out too much as I found a full pump was about twice what you need and just a waste).  Verdict - lovely and soothing, great to use either morning or night, leaves my eyes looking fresh and hydrated, and smells delicious.  Another thumbs up for the eye cream too.



The lovely Angela from Cosima Skincare is also going to send one of my readers a Gentle Foaming Cleanser (RRP $22.50) and a Flawless Eye Cream (RRP $69.00) to try out!  I'm sure whoever wins will love these products just as much as I do.

I would love to try the gentle foaming cleanser. Ever since I've gotten pregnant my skin has been horrible. I can't find anything to make it less blotchy.
