Zuzka Natural Cosmetics


A while ago I was emailed about an event hosted by Bloggers Hub, and unfortunately as the event was in London I was unable to attend. However, on the invitation was a list of some of the brands that were going to be in attendance so being the nosey little so and so that I am I decided to check some of them out. I couldn't help but notice a natural cosmetic brand called Zuzka Natural Beauty, and I decided to do something which I had never done before and email the brand directly. After introducing myself and explaining all about my blog a lady called Sue got in touch and asked about my skin and if I'd like to try a few things from her range. Of course I jumped at the chance and I was delighted when they arrived through my post box!

Zuzka is a natural skincare brand specializing in herbal skincare, and aims to create products which can be used by even the most sensitive of skin. The brand was created by a lady called Susan; a trained beauty therapist who runs her own salon and who eventually decided to create a website in order to share and sell her wonderful products with all of us online. There are a few different product ranges which are all specific to a different type of skin, and with ingredients such as manuka honey and white chocolate they actually sound good enough to eat! The packaging is also absolutely gorgeous and the bright pink and silver certainly stands out on my dressing table!

I'll start with my favourite of the two which was the Dermacare Mattifying Facial Spritz*. As soon as this arrived I just knew I would love it. I suffer from an oily T-zone, which can lead to me breaking out in spots if I'm not careful. The spritz has a lovely clean smell and when I sprayed it onto a cotton pad and smothered it all over my face for the first time it felt delightfully refreshing. This contains witch hazel which as most of us know prevents spots and lavender which soothes the skin. I simply use this after cleansing and before moisturizing. If I really wanted to I suppose I could spray this directly onto my face, but it is really much easier to apply with a cotton pad. I have to say I have been using this now for a total of 10 days and it has made such a difference to the amount of oil my skin is producing. My make up usually melts off my face in my T-zone area, but it has stayed pretty much perfect thanks to this little gem. I'm actually thinking about purchasing this already!

Next I was sent the Cool Blue Contour Day Cream* which I could not stop sniffing at first. This honestly smells incredible, and I also liked how it was blue in colour as well. This cream contains kelp, lemon, and arnica and is supposed to detioxify the skin in order to perk it up. This is quite similar to my all time favourite moisturizer (Origins GinZing for anyone curious) and it definitely did not disappoint. I find this moisturizer very rich and creamy, yet absorbs into my skin quickly, and leaves it  silky soft, and energized. Its probably a little thicker than what I would normally use, but it seems to have put the moisture back into my skin were it is needed. I have also noticed that it seems to have cleared up the little dry flaky patches of skin I suffer from around my nose and over all my skin looks smoother and is noticeably softer to the touch. The only issue I have with this cream is that it is a little pricey for a student like me. However, if you are someone who can afford to pay a little more for good skincare that actually looks after your skin and are interested in natural cosmetics then I cannot recommend this enough!

Have any of you heard of this brand before? Do you like the sound of these products?
