Angela Langford’s Clean Sweep should be in your bathroom with a padlock on it so only you can use it. This is a totally luxurious cleansing balm, perfect to nourish dry skin, but also great for all skin types and can be used to give yourself a wonderful face massage at night while you are cleaning your face. It really does leave your skin glowing and plumps up your complexion, reducing those fine lines if you use regularly and keep yourself hydrated and follow a healthy diet.
What’s in it:
Glugs of almond, apricot, safflower & jojoba are blended with chamomile, cacoa, lemon & eucalyptus to cleanse your skin; making it softer & smoother whilst giving you a gorgeous healthy glow.
Angela says about her Clean Sweep Cleanser, “Perfect if your skin is dry, damaged, dull or flakey. This is your recipe for clean, smooth & radiant skin.”
Angela was working in Gibraltar, made redundant and had time on her hands. Living in Spain, she did not have access to many things that we take for granted in the UK – one of which was access to good skincare. Angela’s favourite brands of skincare were simply not available to her, so she decided to do what most people wouldn’t – she would make her own.
Being a passionate and talented cook, her reasoning was that it seemed not unreasonable that creating skincare products is very similar to creating recipes – after all, making skincare products includes using the best ingredients you can find, that are heated or emulsified or folded into each other (albeit a bit more scientific than that), to end up with a product that is good for you. “
And so Angela embarked on a journey that would see her being taught skincare production by the best in the business, travelling back and forth to the UK to complete her studies. What was originally just a hobby to supply some creams and oils to herself and her immediate family, it quickly escalated to friends and friends of friends – to a point where the original Angela Langford brand was born.
As word got out, more and more people plugged in to Angela’s ethos and, five years on from launching, Angela now helps hundreds of women with their skincare choices, many of which are looking for a natural alternative to the mega brands that they may have used in the past.
Just as Angela does for her monthly pop-up restaurant, she has researched each and every ingredient contained in her products to ensure they are fit for the job. Each raw material has been selected for its unique natural skin care properties – whether it is anti-ageing, rejuvenating, healing, calming, soothing. In addition, Angela has formulated each product to suit and to treat particular skin types. We think this unique approach delivers a far greater concentration of active raw materials – which ultimately means better products for you and your skin.
Angela’s products have no parabens, no petrochemicals, no synthetic fragrances, colours or other skin nasties and are made in the UK. You can delve into her full range of really well priced skincare for face and body on her site here
