Review: Thea Skincare Fruit Enzyme Range

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

I was kindly sent three samples of the Thea Skincare Skin Brightening Face Renew Fruit Enzyme Range to try which is one of the popular ranges for skin brightening that treats blemishes. I hadn't tried Thea Skincare until I received these samples. Thea Skincare products are natural, organic and they do not contain parabens, sulphates or fragrance which could cause irritation. They are also cruelty free, suitable for vegans and pH balanced. 
I received three 15ml pots to try which include the Face Renew Fruit Enzyme Cleanser, Face Renew Fruit Enzyme Exfoliator and the Face Renew Fruit Enzyme Moisturiser. This range contains natural AHA's as well as mango and shea butters! 

*Face Renew Fruit Enzyme Cleanser (£21.95, full size): I have been using this cleanser for about two weeks on and off, it has been a very busy and stressful couple of weeks for me so my skincare routine has been derailed slightly. The cleanser feels smooth and creamy, it doesn't irritate my skin at all while using or afterwards. I feel as though it cleanses my skin without stripping it. The cleanser to me feels and works like a cream version of the REN Hydracalm cleansing gel which I adore! I don't have anything negative really to say about this product apart from the samples pots are not attractive or entirely practical. Overall rating: ★★★★, 4/5. 

*Face Renew Fruit Enzyme Exfoliator (£24.95, full size): I am a little cautious when it comes to new exfoliators as they can irritate my sensitive skin sometimes however this product is very gentle on the skin. The exfoliator bits are gentle although they do exfoliate mildly. As with the cleanser this product does not irritate my skin, I haven't experience any negative effects with this range of samples. The exfoliator, and the cleanser, left my skin smooth, soft and clean. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

*Face Renew Fruit Enzyme Moisturiser (£8.95, 15ml trial size): I have tried so many moisturisers, I have a skincare drawer and at least one third of the products in it are moisturisers (and I have just had a sort out!) so when it comes to moisturising products I know what I want. This moisturiser ticks quite a lot of boxes for me, it doesn't irritate my skin, it isn't greasy or oily, it contains good natural ingredients and it works effectively for my skin at this time of the year. Although during the colder winter months it will not be moisturising enough for my very dry skin. Overall rating: ★★★★, 4/5. 

Overall, I am very happy with the range with regard to the general effectiveness, natural ingredients, simplicity and the cruelty free, natural ethos of the brand; also I feel like the products worked well on my dry, sensitive skin so far. However, the ultimate aim of this range is to brighten the skin and to be honest I don't really see any skin brightening effects, unless they are subtle and I haven't noticed them. I would recommend checking out this brand if you have sensitive skin or if you are looking for a more natural skin care routine. 

Have you tried any products from Thea Skincare? What are your favourite natural skincare products?
