Product
 
Cleansing milk - I am a huge fan of cleansers, and I am always on the look out for a cleanser that's non greasy, fresh, clean and smells good! And SAFA's cleansing milk is certainly fit for purpose. The product has a really rich and velvety consistency with a little going a long way. This is fantastic as you really get your moneys worth from the product. It enables you to remove all of your makeup within a few swipes. I find it works best with cotton pads to remove face makeup, and is safe to use with small cotton wool balls for the delicate areas around your face. The cleanser feels like it doesn't strip any good oils from your face, due to having no alcohol based ingredient. In fact, it almost feels like it keeps  your skin hydrated.
 
Daily moisturiser - I am very picky when it comes to moisturisers. They have to almost meet a criteria for me ,as my skin is sensitive and can differ throughout seasons. I have been using this moisturiser for about a week before I apply my makeup and it offers a beautiful, sheer yet hydrating layer of moisture. It's the perfect skincare essential for summer as it doesn't coat your skin with heavy moisture. At first, I applied way too much and it made my skin feel almost 'cakey'. However, this was a fault of my own. It just proves that you only need a tiny amount to keep your skin hydrated.
 
Over the course of a week, using these products twice everyday, I would say that my skin has not felt dehydrated. It hasn't alerted any spots to flare up on my face, and my skin certainly doesn't feel tight.
 
Both products are ANIMAL CRUELTY FREE, contain NO ALCOHOL, contain 80% ORGANIC INGREDIENTS, and is suitable for VEGANS.  




 Price
* correct from 06/2015
 
£5.99 for the cleansing milk
£6.49 for the daily moisturiser
 
I think the prices for each product are very reasonable. I pay roughly around the same for products such as L'Oreal, simple and Olay.
 
Packaging
 
One thing I love about the packaging is that it is recyclable. It is not in any fancy packaging that tends to go to waste when you throw it out. The bottles are plastic, sleek and travel friendly as the bottles are petit. I also really enjoy the packaging of the boxes as they really exert a natural, simple yet effective look to the SAFA brand.
 
Where to buy?

Overall thoughts
 
Safa skincare has ticked all the boxes for me. The lightweight yet hydrating formulas have enabled these two products to be everyone and anyone's summer essentials. What I love most about the unique and friendly brand, is that the product works and has no need to be tested on animals. It's suitable for vegans and contains organic ingredients. It really made me think - what am I putting on my skin when it comes to other products? These natural and organic skincare products will forever be in my skincare drawer. They are light enough and contain no alcohol for my sensitive skin, and the beautiful thought of organic ingredients hydrating the skin is wonderful - Job very well done safa.
