Eve of St Agnes - Hydrating Facial Silk

Every so often the arrival of an email in my inbox grabs my attention instantly and that was definitely the case with Eve of St Agnes.  A company which was founded in 2011, Emma Heywood had a vision to create a skincare company that would give the finest quality, all- natural skincare products, with a commitment to sourcing the best natural and organic ingredients from Fairtrade and community projects from around the globe.  Having suffered from Eczema and dry skin and failing to find a skincare product which delivered on their promise, she decided to create her own - Eve of St Agnes.

I was very kindly sent the Hydrating Facial Silk which was so very beautifully wrapped and it offers the following description on the back of the very beautiful box:

"Our customers agree that silk is the perfect word to describe our moisturising cream. Can be used as a day or night cream and is perfect for normal, dry and mature skin types. Bursting with skin hydrating ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, (sometimes referred to as the fountain of youth!), our Facial Silk leaves skin feeling nourished, moisturised, smooth and incredibly soft"

Inside the cardboard box is a glass jar which replicates the beautifulness of the box and as soon as you remove the lid, the scent which hits you can only be described as stunning. It is packed full of goodness for your skin and includes ingredients such as Cocoa Butter, Macademia Seed Oil, Thistle Oil, Safflower Seed Oil not to mention Hyaluronic Acid, Frangipani, Champaca and Sweet Orange Oil to name just a few (the rest can be found listed online and on the product). Not only is it 99% natural it is:
  • Handmade in Britain
  • Free from artifical colours and fragrances
  • Not tested on animals
  • Free from Parabens
  • Free from Alcohol

The cream itself is exactly as described, like silk.  To use to simply apply it to your face and neck directly after cleansing, this cream can be used in the morning and night. It is so soft and smooth to the touch and as you apply it to your skin, the feeling is just so lovely, it glides on and instantly absorbs itself leaving no trace behind other than the lovely orangey scent that stays with you for a good few hours after application.  

It also lives up to its claims of leaving your skin feeling nourished, moisturised, smooth and incredibly soft and given that I have been using this cream for the last month, I was told at a recent blogger event where I had my skin scanned to look for sun damage that my skin was in incredible condition and the most moisturised she had seen all day.

I really am excited about what else Eve of St Agnes has to offer, I absolutely love this cream (if you haven't guessed) and cannot wait to see where Emma and Eve of St Agnes go, definitely one to look out for and try!
