Emerging, natural, British skincare brand Puriskin by Vanessa Blake Cosmetics, has been selected by inter-nationally acclaimed Birchbox UK, for their May Beauty Box, showcasing their leading products Puriskin Resurfacing Cream and Puriskin Resurfacing Formula.

Birchbox members will have the opportunity to sample and purchase the face and body refining products. These products promote a new standard in botanical skin smoothing as an alternative to harsh products on the market. Puriskin, suitable for vegetarians, is entirely free of lanolin, steroids, petrochemicals, parabens and other potentially harmful compounds, in keeping with the brand’s ethos, which have been formulated with a unique comfrey and tiger-grass blend to smooth and restore damaged areas of skin.

Puriskin’s Brand Ambassador Amanda Shayle says; “As an emerging brand, we are extremely proud to be in May’s Birchbox UK, helping us to get our products to a wider audience. Our mission is to help people achieve healthy skin with natural products. It is vital in this era of exposure to an increasing range of allergens, to have truly healing formulations that are not marred by problematic ingredients.’”

Both resurfacing products were developed in conjunction with affiliated clinical practitioners, to lend support for a wide variety of conditions affecting damage to the skin surface, including; acne scars, age spots, blemishes, bruises, burns, split skin, stretchmarks and more.

Puriskin Cream is designed for normal to dry skin and provides rapid, lasting hydration with powerful moisturiser, vitamin B5 and soothing chamomile as the active botanical ingredient, providing effective anti-inflammatory care.

Puriskin Formula is formulated with cucumber, for particularly sensitive and traumatised skin (for those suf-fering intense allergic reaction or exposed to surgery). In an exceptionally lightweight texture, with no dis-cernable scent, Puriskin Formula delivers rapid cooling relief to redness and irritation. Practitioners and pa-tients have cited these properties as key benefits, with particularly strong feedback received from sufferers of eczema and those undergoing chemo and radiotherapy.

Puriskin’s Charity Ambassador and Founder of Bosom Buddies UK, the breast cancer organisation support-ed with every purchase of the Puriskin Formula, said, “I had breast cancer in 2010 and was advised to use Puriskin on my scar, which is now hardly visible and when I show people my reconstruction they are truly astounded at the results. Our aim as a charity is to make mastectomies and chemotherapy the rarity and not the norm. We are able to do the awareness-raising work through the generous support of companies like Puriskin by Vanessa Blake Cosmetics who help us in our quest to make opportunities a reality.”

Birchbox UK’s Senior Sales and Account Manager, Prescillia Darmon said, “We love to support emerging brands like Puriskin. We take great care in selecting the products we place in our boxes and we are happy to have them onboard for our May box.” To purchase Puriskin full size products visit the Birchbox e-shop: www.birchbox.co.uk/shop
