I’m a sucker for trying out new skincare and so when I was contacted by UpCircle Beauty asking if I’d like to try their products I was super excited. This skincare company turns leftover ingredients with more left to give into quality skincare products. What’s not to love about that? Their skincare products are natural, sustainable, vegan and cruelty free.

I received the face serum, face mask and a little Pamper Kit £5.99 which included face moisturiser, face scrub and cleansing balm.
I’ll start off with the Cleansing Balm. I love a good cleansing balm, I find it the most effective way to remove makeup and cleanse my skin without stripping it too much. This one smells SO GOOD but hard to describe it’s almost citrusy fruity scent. It’s quite thick but melts into a buttery consistency on the skin. It contains apricot kernel powder which is ever so slightly exfoliating and very gentle. I loved trying this one! Simply massage into skin and then remove with a warm damp cloth. Available on its own too in a big pot for £18.99
The Coffee Face Scrub in citrus blend was also lovely to use on my skin. It contains ground arabica coffee grounds which have been repurposed from artisan coffee shops. It gently buffs away dead skin leaving it soft and glowy. Smells really lovely and also contains Rose hip, sweet orange and lemon verbena oils which help to tone the skin. This can be purchased in a 100ml tube for £12.99.
The final product I tried from the pamper pack I received was The Face Moisturiser. It says it can be used morning and night and there was enough for me to use both times after cleansing. It feels thick and luxurious but sank into my skin very quickly. It contains finely ground Argan shells which is a byproduct of the argan oil industry. It is also combined with aloe Vera, cocoa butter and blood orange which makes it so soothing. It has a very gentle scent but smells lovely and felt really nice on my skin after application. Available in a 50ml pot for £18.99.
The Face Mask from UpCircle Beauty is such a treat and is an absolute joy to use. It’s a detoxifying face mask designed to fight blackheads, minimise pores and prevent breakouts. It’s made with the finely ground powder of olive stones which are known for their anti inflammatory effects and also contains white kaolin clay, coconut powder and baobab oil. It feels super soothing and cooling when you apply it and I could see and feel it getting to work on my skin straight away. My skin felt so smooth afterwards! Available in a 60ml pot for £18.99
Had to save my favourite product of them all until last didn’t I. That would be the Organic Face Serum with Coffee Oil. Now I have to be honest, on first sniff I really didn’t think I was going to like this as it smelled predominantly of coffee but once I applied it to my skin and saw what an absolute dream it was on my skin I quickly changed my mind. The coffee scent also mellowed out on my skin and I began to smell notes of the other essential oils of geranium, rose and lemon. An almost Turkish delight scent. This facial serum is meant to brighten the complexion and keep skin firm and it’s just wonderful. I first used it during the day after cleansing and moisturising and wow my skin felt silky smooth. What I loved the most about it was my makeup went on SO nice after using it and who needs primer when this does it all? I’ve also been using it at night as the last step of my skincare and my face feels more rejuvenated in the mornings. Available in a 30ml pipette style bottle for £14.99.
I enjoyed using every single product and already eyeing up what I want to try next! They have lots of other skin treats available on their website so go and check them out.
Thank you again to UpCircle Beauty for very kindly sending me these goodies to try out. A little bit of self care makes the world of difference.
