This post features gifted products from Fushi. All thoughts and opinions are my own, as always!
Oh it’s been a hot minute since I last chatted about skincare on here! And it’s funny really, because I’ve now got several skincare and beauty posts in the pipeline. It’s like buses… but less red, much less metal and less carbon-producing.
Last month, I was kindly gifted the new BioVedic™ skincare range by Fushi. I’ve been actively seeking out more cruelty-free and vegan brands to add to my rollcall these days, especially as my knowledge feels so limited, particularly when I’m rifling through the shelves in Superdrug with my Bunny Free app in hand!
Fushi are a 10-year-old wellbeing company that prides themselves on formulations that use unrefined pure beauty oils, freshly ground biodynamic herbs and ethically sourced ingredients. Their products are each crafted in their London workshop, and Fushi is a proud member of the Ethical Company Organisation, which is great news all around.
First up, the Enzyme Face Wash (£15). This is an incredibly delicate and refreshing botanical fast wash. The texture is like a watery gel and has been a dream to try, especially as the seasons change and my skin changes with it. Blended with rice bran oil to moisturise and brighten skin, it leaves my skin SO soft and perfectly clean.
Next, the Radiance Face Oil (£22). I didn’t get on with this at first but after a week’s use (I’d roll it on with my jade facial roller), I was besotted. This is another delicate, lightweight formula, which at first I wasn’t a fan of. However it is beautifully formulated with five nutrient-dense oils that, together, reveal soft, radiant and glowy skin. I don’t use it every night but on the mornings-after that I do, my skin looks like a summer’s golden hour. Sushi suggest you use it after face cream or with your moisturiser, but I like using it solo.
Lastly, their Radiance Face Cream (£20) which I haven’t really enjoyed. My skin is typically ‘normal’ with a few dry patches, but this moisturiser leaves my skin far too greasy. It’s made with complexion-boosting Manjistha and repairing saffron, designed to leave skin instantly hydrated and feeling fresh. But for me, it takes forever to sink in and even then, leaves my skin looking greasy as opposed to glowy. It’d be great for dry skin types, but alas, isn’t for me.
The range is now available online at Fushi, as well as via Ocado, Wholefoods and Planet Organic, and prices start at £15.
