I’ve been using the Skin Food for about a year now. I’ve previously used MANY high end products and nothing compares to how my skin feels when I use these products. I was using this as a moisturiser and cleanser, which works fine (however I’ve since discovered the amazing cleansing oil). So now I don’t have to waste this lovely product to cleanse, it lasts me such a long time. My skin no longer has odd breakouts. Doesn’t have black heads, doesn’t have a white film around my oily T-zone. In fact I don’t even have an oily T-zone anymore! Don’t be put off by its oily consistency. It’s absorbed so naturally by your skin. If it hasn’t, you used too much. I usually add a few sprays of the gorgeous smelling Skin Drink with a small dab of this cream, it works together perfectly. Just love it and will never use anything else again.
I have only been using this product for a week but so far all good. My skin feels soft and nourished and so far no signs of any sensitivity. If this continues - will definitely be ordering again.
My first purchase (sceptically) was the face oil. I don't usually like face oils because I always found them too greasy. Absolutely Pure's face oil was perfect...a wonderful find! So I started to gradually use more of the products - the cleansing oil = WOW, then the organic skin drink = FABULOUS, then the hair fixative = SUPERB. Someone would think I had enough of the products from this site ... but wait ... I didn't realise I missed the skin food! Just started using the skin food = UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME! The problem with Absolutely Pure is that I can't stay away from this website. IMPORTANT UPDATE: I am once again on this site, purchasing for family and friends... :-O Thank you Absolutely Pure! ... I think ;-)
I am so pleased this product exists. There are many tallow based products in the US, but I think this is the only one in the UK. I am very keen to reduce PUFAs in my diet- so why not do that in my skincare as well!
I love the fact that you can get this in both unscented and rose geranium. I use the unscented on my face and the rose geranium on my hands.
The reason I have only scored it with 4* on this occasion is because the formula has changed and is slightly more oily.
While this is easier to get out of the jar, I don't like the consistency as much on my skin. I find it doesn't absorb quite as well.
Full disclosure - I have contacted Sophie about this, and she explained that the new formula is gluten free and even lower in PUFAs, which I applaud - I just don't like it quite as much.
I know we aren't meant to comment on customer service, but I must praise Sophie on her fast and accommodating response to my query about purchasing the old formula.
I was looking for a natural moisturiser and this fits the bill- my skin is softer and more luminous, and hasn’t caused any breakouts. So very pleased.
I have been using skindrink and skinfood since one week, my skin seems happy. I particularly like the smell of skindrink.
Organic Skin Food is an incredible product. It is very different from any skin cream I have ever used before as it really sinks into the skin and moisturises it so that you can longer feel it at all on your skin. This is very different from most creams which tend to just 'sit' on the skin surface.
It is also an extremely gentle product and because it only contains natural and organic ingredients you know it is very nourishing for your skin. I also found it very helpful when my skin was a bit inflamed and sensitive. I also really like the values and ethics of this company. I wish more were like it!
Fantastic product. A little goes a long way. Will last a long time. Very smooth. Good for dry skin. Will definitely get more of this.
I have been using Organic Skin Food for a couple of years and am still completely in love with it! I used it on its own to begin with but it was suggested to use the Skin Drink before applying and I definitely recommend to do this. I never have bad skin anymore, it still feels amazing when I put it on, I have tested others when caught short without it and nothing feels anywhere near as good, I tell everyone about my favourite face balm!
Recently I have tried it on my daughters small patches of eczema which has been soothing it nicely. So I`m very happy with finding another benefit.
Wonderful skin product which leaves the skin very soft without a greasy residue. I particularly like the fact that it can be used for both day and night and the eye area, saving on packing space for holidays. It also makes a great base for mineral powder foundation.
