I thought I would quickly get this review up because I am anticipating that these will feature in my March favourites next week. I was send these to review, but I am going to admit that I am loving them and I have been reaching for them everyday over my normal cleansers and body lotions
Coast To Coast is an Australian brand that has released three ranges for skincare, bath and body, and hair care. The three ranges are Coastal, Rainforest and Outback (how Aussie) and you can get cleansers, exfoliators, toners, serums, moisturisers, masks, lip balms, body lotions, body scrubs, body washes, hand creams, foot treatments, shampoos and conditioners in each of the three ranges. The ranges are each designed for different skin/hair types which makes choosing the right product very simple.
COASTAL: The Coastal range of skincare is designed for people who have normal, dry or sensitive skin. The Coastal range of bath and body products are designed to hydrate, soothe and refresh, and the Coastal range of hair products is designed for normal and dry hair.
RAINFOREST: The Rainforest range of skincare is designed for people who have oily, combination or blemish-prone skin. The Rainforest range of bath and body products are designed to revitalise, contour (?) and invigorate, and the Rainforest range of hair products is designed for normal and oily hair.
OUTBACK: The Outback range of skincare is designed for people who have dehydrates, dull or uneven skin. The Outback range of bath and body products are designed to brighten, nourish and replenish, and the Outback range of hair products is designed for dry and damaged hair.
I have been trialing the Pore Purifying Foaming Cleanser with Lilly Pilly and Eucalyptus from the Rainforest range and I have been really enjoying it! It is a gel cleaner that is oil and sulphate free, contains salicylic acid to help clear up breakouts, and the lilly pilly, eucalyptus and tea tree is supposed to help regulate and prevent oil production. I'm not sure if these claims hold up, I have been using these for a couple of weeks and my skin has been quite clear and a lot less oily than before I started using these products. I'm not sure yet if I've just had a good skin week or if these products are actually working. What I love most about this is that it cleanses really well without stripping the skin, it has a nice refreshing minty herbal scent and contains good ingredients (see the list of ingredients on the website). This is also very affordable at $19.95 for 100ml.
Lastly, I have been using the Nourishing Body Balm with Desert Lime and Sweet Orange from the Outback range. I am loving the scent and lightness of this body lotion. It is hydrating but it doesn't feel heavy or greasy on the skin and I love the fresh lime and and orange scent. This also contains some lovely ingredients like aloe vera and leatherwood honey (see the list of ingredients on the website). This retails for $24.95 for 250ml.
Overall I am actually very excited to try more product from Coast To Coast. I think this brand delivers some really nice basic skincare products with good results, great ingredients and are quite affordable. There are a lot of products available in the three ranges, so check out the website for more information. You can buy them online or in store at David Jones or Sephora.
