The Fresh and Fruity skincare products making a splash

Sponsored Advertorial in Association with SBC GELS

If there is one brand I can count on to brighten up my day it is SBC, their range of skin friendly skincare gels, cleansers and body products always feel so beautiful on the skin, smell fresh and fruity and keep the skin calm and balanced. Having been a constent lover of this brand for over 15 years I am always excited to try something new….

SBC Fresh and Fruity Collection

Some of their new products that I have been loving lately offer me fast and effective ways to cleanse my skin, on both my face and body, protect my skin from harmful aggressors and leave me feeling revitalised and uplifted.

Heading through Spring and into Summer it is so lovely to use lighter products that have the most mouth watering scents, are infused with Vitamins, Minerals and Fruit extracts, and have the amazing ability to make you look and feel so much better in an instant. Currently exclusive to the SBC Website HERE, you can purchase some of my favourite products from their new releases.

Citrus Caviar & Mandarin Shower Gel & Shampoo

Spring has allegedly sprung, but if you still struggle to wake up in the mornings, and want a pep in your step, this is what you MUST reach for in the shower! This all in one shampoo and shower gel is enriched with Vitamin extracts which literally wake up the skin and the senses! Suitable for the whole family, this does not last long in my shower! Literally, it is a huge favourite before work, school and after muddy football matches, because it is super quick and gets everything clean!  I love how it leaves the hair looking shiny and feeling clean without stripping it, plus those super soft bubbles are a joy first thing in the morning!

“Caviar Lime, Desert Lime & Rainforest Lime combine in a unique three-lime blend rich in Vitamin C, antioxidants and naturally occurring AHA’s to help deeply cleanse, brighten and revitalise lacklustre skin and hair.
Mandarin Peel Oil, also a rich source of Vitamin C, helps to protect and re-balance the skin, whilst Vitamin E, Pro-vitamin B5, and Glycerin combine to hydrate, smooth and condition; adding shine and moisture to the hair and leaving skin feeling silky smooth.”

Seriously, this smells soooo unbelievably Citrus and is the perfect way to start your day or can be used as a great bargaining tool to get the kids in the shower hahaha! Available HERE

Skin Defence White Tea & Charcoal Body Wash with Herbashield

sbc white tea and charcoal body wash

This Vegan friendly body wash is perfect for when your skin is struggling with blocked pores, dehydration and blemishes. Infused with White Tea Tree and Charcoal this is amazing at cleansing the skin deep down and removing impurities. Perfect for the gym bunnies in my house, they love to use this in the shower after a long run or gym session to thoroughly remove sweat and grime and dead skin cells. Containing botanical blends of Watercress, Horsetail and Nettle, this also strengthens the skins barrier whilst offering a deep cleanse in an instant. The glycerine formula helps to leave the skin feeling really soft after, which is great on a mans skin, if they don’t like to moisturise after.  I think the men love it because it is a no fuss formula, it smells fresh and incredibly clean, and leaves that lovely scent lingering on the skin and in the bathroom. I love it before bed, in the bath – a few pumps under running water – as i love that clean fragrance and feeling on my body before slipping into clean sheets. Available HERE

“A fresh Persian floral accord, opening with a subtle zesty blend of grapefruit, bergamot and lime, wrapped in a warm, delicate cardamom spice. The indulgent notes of honeysuckle and nutmeg lead you to the elegant contrast of rose and thyme, finishing with a velvet veil of musk, tea and luscious amber.”

Skin Defence White Tea & Nettle Skincare Gel

SBC White tea and nettle bodycare gel

I so wish you could smell this product because it is so beautiful. Fresh, Fruity, Mouth-wateringly Zesty, this really feels wonderfully cooling on the skin. This water based gel hydrates intensely without leaving any sticky residue behind. Working in perfect harmony with the Body Wash mentioned above, this gel adds a instant “lift” to the skins tone. This oil free formula is suitable for all skin types, so if you struggle with blemishes and spots of anytype, this lightweight gel glides across the skin to create a protective barrier. I have been using this across my chin, on a hormonal breakout and also across my nose where I can be prone to blackheads. What I can say is thanks to the Hyaluronic Acid and Anti-oxidants, this really does leave the skin feeling super supple, smooth and hydrated.

Suitable for use on both the face and body and on men and women, this product will become your secret weapon. Here is a little tip, apply it as a primer under your make up! It literally smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles, protects the skin from dirt and grime, adds a lovely barrier between your skin and make up and literally gives a flawless finish. You are welcome! Available HERE

Cucumber Micellar Gel Cleanser

You know I love a micellar cleanser, especially as a first cleanse, or for removing make up or to sweep over my skin first thing in the morning. This Cucumber Micellar Gel cleanser is no exception. Incredibly fresh smelling thanks to the Citrus Lemon top notes, Cucumber and White Floral middle notes rounded off with a light Musk,  this is wonderfully cooling on the skin. This water based gel is incredibly lightweight yet acts as a magnet to pull out dirt and impurities from the skin.

I adore using this Vegan formula over my eyes as the Cucumber is so soothing and I find this micellar really does remove my heavy mascara and eyeshadow in a flash. I literally pop some of the gel onto two cotton pads and lay them over my eyes for a few seconds, then gently wipe away the make up. My Skin is always left feeling super refreshed and cool and thanks to the glycerine inclusion, wonderfully hydrated. If you love an easy, yet 100% effective cleanser, I would recommend this. Plus it is suitable for even the most sensitive of skins. Works great with the Cucumber Face Mask that I wrote about HERE  Available HERE

Collagen Micellar Cleanser

SBC Micellar Cleansing Water

SBC are famous for their Collagen range and the incredible results this collection achieves. I for one am a huge fan and have written about it countless times HERE and HERE. To add a Collagen Micellar to the equation just really floats my boat, I mean, if we are going to cleanse our face it might as well have some beneficial ingredients in right? This dual action cleanser uses that Micellar technology as mentioned above,  to draw out dirt and impurities from the skin. The water based gel formula is infused with Marine Collagen, Chamomille and Calendula to not only offer a deep cleanse, but also soothe, moisturise and soften a more mature skin type. Passionflower not only adds that beautiful, light floral scent to the product but also conditions the skin and helps leave it looking fresh and bright after application. I love this gel as it is not sticky and is so quick and easy to use that there really is no excuse not to remove your make up please!! Available HERE

SBC Fresh and Fruity Collection including micellar

I am thoroughly enjoying using all of these products currently and have been for well over a month. The gel offers such a lightweight, easy-to-use texture, that not only works beautifully on the skin and sinks in wonderfully where necessary, but also makes the whole cleansing of the face and body a really quick, easy and pleasurable experience. I love this Award Winning British Beauty brand and the Botanical and naturally derived ingredients they use. Their no fuss approach to packaging, makes this a brand that can excel more so on their ingredients and results. A winner with my whole family and always has been.

These products are currently exclusive to the SBC Gels website which you can find HERE
