Just discovered, Santaverde Organic Skincare.
by Jenny Finn
I have searched, what feels like forever to find a natural range that 1, I like 2, smells nice and 3, really works. After my husband returned from a business trip to Germany, he brought me back some of the Santaverde range, then after lots of research I found Santaverde is very popular in Germany and has even won a few awards.
After using I can really see why. I have now used the beauty elixir and the medium cream, which is just amazing as I have a very reactive and reddish skin. My skin has become so much calmer in appearance. I was very surprised to find that Santaverde skincare range isn't really stocked in the U.K. I am happy to buy from the internet but I think its nice to see the products before hand.
Anyway hope this helps anyone that has had the same issues as me and would love (if you are listening,) to see it in more locations in the south of England.
Thank you Jenny for the review.

Their products are BDIH certified which means that raw materials are mostly plant or mineral based, there is restricted use of some materials like fats, waxes and oils, no synthetic dyes, fragrances or petroleum based ingredients are used and no animal testing.
