So today I’m bringing to you some more skincare. You can never have enough Skincare I always say!!  
Last week I was lucky enough to be kindly gifted a product from the African Extracts brand. This brand is new to the UK and after reading all about it sounds amazing. 
So who are African Extracts Rooibos?
African Extracts Rooibos is an affordable natural skincare range that mixes together the science of contemporary skincare with the proven efficacy of natural plant extracts.
The company has been created by beauty expert and award winning beauty editor Sarah Hetherington in her home of Cape Town in 2002. 
SA- Beauty is the latest beauty import to reach the UK with the key ingredient of both the Classic and the Advanced ranges being antioxidant rich Rooibos extract. This extract has been grown naturally in the rugged Cederberg Mountains of South Africa. The therapeutic power of the Rooibos plant has been known for centuries for its healing and soothing properties. The brand believes in the power of nature to bring amazing skincare results.
There are two collections available in the UK. The classic collection for normal and combination skin and the Advantage section for dry and mature skins.
The Classic collection forms the foundation of the brand with an effective range of everyday cleanse, tone, wash and moisturising products. Where as the Advantage range has been specially formulated to keep skin, young, radiant and smooth.
The African Extracts Rooibos Advantage that I have been kindly sent, is the Creamy Cleanser. 
This is a luxurious cleansing lotion the leaves your skin clean, soft and comfortable. 
It contains Bio Active Rooibos extract, Aloe leaf extract to protect the skin from UV rays and Vitamins C and E. This helps to get rid of the daily grime and adds moisture to leave your skin super soft, clean and comfortable without disturbing the skins delicate surface. 
The product comes in a lovely shade of red box and the same shade tube. Both the tube and the box have a lovely gold band across it. This makes the box really luxurious and I completely love the packaging so much.

You get 125ml of product which I would say is an average for a facial cleansing product.
So onto the bit you all want to know. Is the product any good.
First of all it smells amazing. Not too over the top for a skincare product but just enough to make washing your face a pleasurable experience.
The product does produce a lovely lather and really cleans your face. I wear a lot of makeup and this Creamy Cleanser removed it all. Not a trace of my makeup was left ( even my heavy eye makeup) It doesn’t sting your eyes either which is something I know many face washes can do. 
My skin felt really soft after using this product and even though I used this product as part of my evening routine I can imagine it feeling really nice in the morning and would make you skin feel great as a base for your makeup products. 
It certainly didn’t dry out my skin either which I know some cleansers can do and I would definitely be tempted to try out other products from the brand in the future.
This product is £10.99 which I would say was a mid price for a cleanser. When you consider that a little goes a long way and the quality of the product I would say the product is fairly priced. 

Before I finish I just want to point out that all of the range of products are Paraben free, microbead free, cruelty free and almost all of the collection from the range are vegan.
If you fancy trying out this amazing brand for yourself or simply fancy a look at the brands website I will leave you the link below.

The website also gives you the opportunity to get 10% off your first order if you sign up with an email.

Until next time.
