Review: Le Belle Natural Oil Cleanser & Hydrating Toner (Competition Ended)

APOLOGIES FOR MISSING IMAGES – host transferral resulted in older posts losing images 

A little while ago I reviewed some beautiful Le Belle products I use, and I decided to ask the owner of Le Belle if they would like to be part of my ’12 days of Christmas give-away’. Victoria graciously agreed and I was blessed to experience a new formulation of a product I had yet to try as they re-launch their range, and Victoria offered a lovely moisturiser and cleanser for one lucky winner.

Le Belle believes in luxury skincare that is not only natural and organic, but also supports the environment by using fully recyclable glass packaging, which is also refillable, so nothing is wasted. They sell a range of beauty products including moisturisers, cleansers, body lotions, eye serums and masks (see HERE for the thorough review I did earlier in the year).

Instead of covering the products in fancy box packaging, they chose to use recycled glass for their containers and bottles, and put the additional resources they save from packaging into high quality ingredients. They also encourage refilling some of the products they sell, which further adds to the ecological value of this brand and something I absolutely adore.

Natural Oil Cleanser

For this review I got to try an oil cleanser. I had never even thought of an oil as a cleanser before. I mainly cleanse with a milk cleanser. After talking to Victoria about my skincare needs (rosacea, sensitive) she recommended I try the oil cleanser.

The key ingredients are:

  • Camellia Oil (organic and cold pressed) – removes make up and impurities that lie deep in the pores and leaves the skin feeling soft and moisturised. Contains Vitamins A, D, E, K and polyphenols, natural antioxidants that safeguard the skin from the damaging effects of UV exposure and free radicals
  • Jojoba Oil (organic and cold pressed) – works as an emulsifier to unclog pores. Gives excellent protection to the skin, which stops trans-epidermal water loss. 
  • Thistle Oil (organic and cold pressed) – an excellent source of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids (vitamin F). Helps to reduce the size of pores and helps to rebalance the skin.
  • Hazelnut Oil (organic) – helps to rebalance oily and combination skin to a more normal skin type
  • Vitamin E & Essential Oils of Ylang Ylang, Palmarosa, Geranium, Lemon, Rosewood
What’s It Like?
Like the other products I have tried from Le Belle this comes in a beautiful frosted, recycled glass bottle. It has an easy-to-press pump for easy release of the oil. I loved the fact that I only need to press this once as less is more when it comes to an oil cleanser I discovered.
After a fully make-upped day, I decided to try it on my skin. It removed my mineral make-up beautifully and smelled heavenly. Instead of roughing up my skin, it took a simple warming of the oil in my hands, applying it to my face and massaging it into my skin in a circular motion . Once fully absorbed, I then warmed a face cloth with water and pressed it against my skin. Could it be this simple to remove make-up? It appears so.
Once I had removed all my make-up, pretty easily for a change, I liked the fact my skin still felt moisturised; it had not dried out at all like many cleansers tend to do to my skin. I loved the combination of ingredients in this cleanser. They really soothed my skin after make-up removal.

Hydrating Toner 

The ingredients include:

Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Citrus Aurantium Amara Flower Water.

I love this toner. So gentle. I reviewed it HERE a little while back.  

“Firstly, it is alcohol free. When I was younger, I used toners containing alcohol and they simply dried my skin out and did not smell very nice.  

It is beautifully gentle and great for removing make-up and toning up my skin. It is also hydrating which really helps support my skin unlike my toners of the past.”

This is a beautiful floral toner that soothes, tones and brightens the skin and it really does make your skin feel refreshed and  hydrated. It is perfect for removing any left over cleanser too. I hope you like it as much as I do, whoever wins this competition.  Like the oil cleanser this also comes in their gorgeous frosted glass bottles. Something about these bottles just makes me feel really luxurious and my bathroom looks fab too (smile).

  13. December 3, 2013 / 8:41 am

    I find it most difficult remembering to wash my face at night before passing out. I'm sooo tired by bedtime!

  14. December 3, 2013 / 8:41 am

    Getting in the habit of doing it :/

  15. December 3, 2013 / 8:53 am

  16. December 3, 2013 / 9:09 am

  17. December 3, 2013 / 9:27 am

    I have the routine of cleansing, then toning then moisturising, would be great to have something that's all in one

  18. December 3, 2013 / 10:09 am

    Large pores – would like something than minimises them without drying my skin out.

  19. December 3, 2013 / 10:14 am

    my pores are large, i cleanse,tone and moisturise morning and night but my skin would look so much better if there was a way to shrink my pores!

  20. December 3, 2013 / 10:15 am

    Making good habbits …. Im useless and doing the necessary things day in and out …

  21. December 3, 2013 / 11:19 am

  22. December 3, 2013 / 11:43 am

  23. December 3, 2013 / 11:49 am

  27. December 3, 2013 / 2:00 pm

    It's all so time consuming 🙂

  28. December 3, 2013 / 2:36 pm

  34. December 3, 2013 / 4:18 pm

    Knowing which products to use and in which order and which might compliment/clash with each other!

  35. December 3, 2013 / 4:58 pm

    Moisturising before bed and not getting on the pillow.

  38. December 3, 2013 / 7:10 pm

    I find removing exfoliation cream a nightmare. Its gritty nature makes it stick to your skin

  39. December 3, 2013 / 8:14 pm

    My skin gets very dry in the winter, no matter how much moisturiser I use!

  40. December 3, 2013 / 8:57 pm

    i have really bad break outs if i exfoliate more than once a week

  41. December 3, 2013 / 9:36 pm

    I find the most difficulty getting rid of blackheads. Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  42. December 3, 2013 / 10:01 pm

    exfoliation is always a bit of a task, so I never normally bother!

  43. December 3, 2013 / 10:04 pm

    I find it difficult tackling fine lines, break outs and dry skin all at once!

  44. December 3, 2013 / 10:36 pm

    I have probablems making sure I do it every day some days it seems like such a chore which I know is so bad for my skin. x

  45. December 3, 2013 / 11:43 pm

    Find removing nail varnish difficult and would like to see applying fake tan made easier.

  46. December 4, 2013 / 12:09 pm

    eye make up – if i dont take it off i get sore eyes but not all cleaners get it off and some eye make up remover is stingy!

  47. December 4, 2013 / 2:24 pm

    Time, that's my problem

  48. December 4, 2013 / 7:03 pm

    i'd like it all to be quicker – I never find the time to look after my skin properly

  49. December 4, 2013 / 9:05 pm

    my routine doesn't take long and I don't have a problem with any of it

  50. December 5, 2013 / 7:15 am

    I don't have a problem with skin care – I have a routine that works for me and I'm proud of the condition of my skin

  51. December 5, 2013 / 12:13 pm

    I seem to have a problem creating a balance and finding out what is actually good for my skin. Some mornings I wake up after using coconut oil and sudocrem to find it looks great…then 15 minutes later all my spots have cropped up again!

  52. December 5, 2013 / 5:35 pm

    the hardest part for me is finding an efficent way to exfoliate my skin, it seems to get really dry and flaky again fast.

  53. December 7, 2013 / 10:13 am

    I have a 3 step cleansing routine, I really dont have any problems

  54. December 7, 2013 / 4:54 pm

    eye make up remover that doesnt sting or struggle to get it all off

  55. December 7, 2013 / 7:35 pm

    Exfoliating,it takes forever and actually makes my skin feel sore

  56. December 8, 2013 / 8:11 pm

    I have never found a way to completely get rid of blackheads.

  57. December 9, 2013 / 8:11 am

    I find it difficult at this time of year, with cold winds and central heating, to find a balance with keeping my very dry skin hydrated and not looking like a victim of an oil-slick

  58. December 9, 2013 / 10:24 am

    I find removing mascara most difficult, I'd like to see this made easier!

  59. December 11, 2013 / 2:44 pm

    keeping my skin blemish free, tried everything 🙁

  60. December 11, 2013 / 6:50 pm

    Trying to find the right products. I have combination skin and psoriasis. skincare is a chore for me

  64. December 12, 2013 / 8:16 am

    My skin often looks flakey under my foundation

  65. December 13, 2013 / 1:34 pm

    None of it!

  66. December 14, 2013 / 7:18 pm

    Most difficult is finding natural products. What I would like to be easier is to find out about product ingredients as many products say natural on the label when they are anything but.

  67. December 14, 2013 / 8:12 pm

    My skin gets dry

  68. December 14, 2013 / 9:27 pm

    Putting lotion on my back its so impossible and awkward if only there was some invention out there that would do this for you

  71. December 15, 2013 / 12:23 am

    Love the ingredients in these products

  72. December 15, 2013 / 2:42 am

    Finding anti-ageing products that actually work is the hardest thing, I've tried so many. I would love it if more samples were available, to see which ones worked on my skin, just to save wasting money.

  73. December 15, 2013 / 7:14 am

    I love Oil Cleansing Method, I first started using olive oil and castor oil but currently use either grapeseed oil in the UK or coconut oil when I'm in the US, it'd be interesting to how a commercial oil mix works out – I'm astonished more mainstream companies haven't brought out oil cleansers given their popularity and increased acceptance of oils in beauty.

    As much as I love OCM my skin still get clogged-up (not nearly as bad as when using soaps or washes, anything but OCM causes major break-outs, amongst other problems), but exfoliation normally involves using some sort of wash that makes my skin worse. I have a facial brush but my skin still feels clogged…I'd love something that actually lifts the junk out of my pores more effectively (peeling masks don't do the job either).

  74. December 15, 2013 / 7:54 am

    i have such trouble finding a good eye cream for my crows feet. i hate them and am trying everything to help as getting married in July and want them to look better xx

    Find some toners irritate skin

  76. December 15, 2013 / 9:39 am

    being arthritic I find the hardest part of any skin routine is finding products in containers that can be easily opened and allow you to get the product out of the container without the hassle of trying to squeeze a tube or fish creams etc out of a stupid shaped jar!

  77. December 15, 2013 / 12:05 pm

    Remembering to wash by face before bedtime.

  78. December 15, 2013 / 4:29 pm

    Having very sensitive skin finding an ideal product is difficult…not tried Le Belle but it sounds lovely. I find some ingredient descriptions quite difficult to understand..maybe keep it simple.

  79. December 15, 2013 / 5:23 pm

    Luxury skin products made from the highest quality of oils and vitamins provides a welcomed treat for winter-parched skin. Totally delightful!

  101. December 16, 2013 / 10:59 pm

    I find getting a decent eye make up remover that does a thorough job of cleansing yet doesn't irritate the skin around my eyes difficult to find. As a result I can't wear mascara every day.
