NEW: Organic Skincare Brand Chery Lin
Chery Lin is a new organic skincare brand, based out in the Cotswolds. Using the freshest ingredients (and made-to-order) its eponymous founder prides herself on creating natural products, with essential oils as the basis for everything.
I’ve been trialing the wonderful Luxury Rose Night moisturier (£26), which is deliciously rich with a consistency almost like bees wax and is perfect for dry skin at this time of year. I’ve also been using the Rose and Lavender Body Oil (£21.50), you just need to unscrew the lid and breathe in its delightful aroma to get an instant hit of relaxation. It’s perfect for massaging into parched skin, but also great for putting a few drops into the bath for added moisture.
I really love the products and I love the fact that the ingredients are 100% natural, organic and based around the healing properties of essential oils, but the only slight downside I would say is the packaging. I’m a sucker for beautifully packaged products and I love to have glass bottles and candles lining my bathroom. The screw top of the Body Oil just doesn’t quite do it for me, it feels like this should be the re-fill option and there should be an original glass version somewhere. Aside from that though, the products are absolutely lovely.
To find out a bit more about the brand, I caught up with Chery Lin’s eponymous founder…
Why did you launch the Chery Lin?
“After suffering with ME in my early 20’s, I became particularly interested in nutrition and aromatherapy to help me manage the illness. ME seemed to reveal allergies and intolerances and commercial skincare caused my skin to react. Understanding that what you put on your skin is absorbed into your body, I started creating skincare and developed recipes that enhance the overall well-being through the use and careful blending of therapeutic, nutritious oils and health promoting essential oils.”
What key ingredients do you use?
“My skincare is 100%, pure, natural and organic. Every ingredient I use in each product performs a vital role. Essential oils are nature’s perfumes, remedies and antiseptics and have amazing rejuvenating qualities. Favourite essential oils are rose, lavender and mandarin as they are tolerated by most people and are safe to use on children.”
What sets Chery Lin apart from other brands out there?
“Many of us buy skincare to fix a problem e.g. wrinkles, sagging or reactive skin. But the miracle cure does not bring the equilibrium back to stressed skin and body. My skincare has been designed to “naturally treat the skin, body and senses” so that optimum enjoyment and benefit is gained through use. The products are made only upon receipt of the orders as it is important that every product has maximum therapeutic value, freshness and aroma.”
