You could be forgiven for thinking that eucalyptus’ sole usage was in cold remedies, for inhalation and helping to clear the sinuses with its potent odour, but eucalyptus has many uses, especially within beauty products. Pure Beauty stocks many products which contain eucalyptus, and we’re giving you the lowdown on five of the best:
This cleansing balm is actually one of Elemis’ most popular products, thanks to its superior cleansing power and ability to melt away make-up and daily grime without affecting the natural balance of the skin. As well as eucalyptus oil, it contains geranium, mint, lavender, chamomile, ho wood, orange, menthol and clove to deliver superior and therapeutic skincare benefits. It’s 100% natural and can also be used as a special treatment mask.
Dermalogica’s Clearing Skin Wash is specially formulated for skin which is prone to acne, blackhead, excess oils and other breakouts and harnesses eucalyptus to eliminate breakout-causing bacteria. This foaming wash clears spot-causing bacteria and excess oil without stripping the skin and is designed to sooth the skin at the same time.
Elemis Quiet Mind Temple Balm is a truly unique product which uses a specific blend of aromatic oils to help to soothe the senses and calm the mind and body. It contains eucalyptus oil, as well as patchouli, lemon, ho wood, centella asiatica and organic Indian menthol, which combine to reduce stress and anxiety. It’s perfect for use before bedtime, especially for insomniacs or people who struggle with sleep.
It’s not just your face which benefits from a special cleanser – this body wash from Dermalogica contains purifying essential oils and natural extracts to cleanse the body without over-drying while conditioning the skin, de-stressing the mind and soothing the senses. It is suitable for all skin types and contains purifying essential oils of eucalyptus, tea tree, lemon and rosemary to invigorate the skin.
Eucalyptus, as well as other menthol ingredients, are super refreshing to the skin, making them great for the foot area, which can often feel achy and overworked. This foot cream from Elemis is designed to smooth and hydrate the skin and uses a blend of aromatic patchouli, eucalyptus, and lemon oils to help comfort your feet.
