Laidbare DIY! Two in One Cleanser & Toner (review)

Laidbare DIY! Two in One Cleanser & Toner
Touch My Face Ltd, the 'parent company' of Laidbare, started life in March 2006 in the United Kingdom to “create, develop and distribute beneficial and, safe beauty brands by avoiding synthetic ingredients wherever possible.” Laidbare is owner Sarah's own creation, but other brands sold by Touch My Face include Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare and Pacific Shaving Company.

Laidbare itself offers a good range of interesting, genuinely natural products that are well-priced. They're well-priced not just in terms of 'for a natural brand', but they're priced to be accessible to all. Scrubs, eye and face treatments, tanning products and body care are all available.

The 125 ml tube has a screw cap which unfortunately broke off after a couple of uses (screw caps aren't as easy to use as flip caps, either) but other than that minor quality defect the quality of the cleanser itself is faultless. It's a yellow-hued transparent gel of fairly thick consistency. A little goes a long way, so one 5 pence sized squirt will do your face and neck.

It's designed for all skin types and I must say it suits my normal to oily skin perfectly. It wasn't in the slightest bit drying and cleaned and refreshed my face effortlessly. I really like it! I didn't try it on heavy make-up but it did remove primer, concealer, powder and eye shadow without difficulty.

I'm not sure very dry skin types should use it (if that's you try wipe-off cleansers instead) but everyone else can rest easy as this wash-off gel is completely free of petrochemicals, sulphates, parabens, TEA, DEA, glycols, synthetic fragrance and colour while also being cruelty-free! Ecologically this product is sound and contains none of the traditional skin allergy triggers.

It does contain anti-bacterial liquorice and aloe vera and something called Apple Secrets Extract to protect skin's cells not to mention antioxidant Brazil nut extract. On top of all that I personally think it smells amazing and has a lovely lather, making this a very luxurious product to use.

At just £5.99 I think it's a bit of a bargain, too.  While I've not seen it on the high street yet, I have seen it lots of places on-line.  I can't wait to try other products in the range; if they're even half as good as this we're all in for a treat!
