Keisha & Co Clay Cleansing Balm and Skin Saviour Oil Review
In case you have read some of my previous blog posts or some of my Instagram post you may know that I have a special place in my heart for supporting Australian business. So when I came across Keisha & Co and their lovely duo of skincare items I hit the ‘add to cart’ button faster than I could apply a sheet mask.
They do only have two items but those are enough to make me a huge fan. Keisha & Co recently started to donate part of their profits to a charity that helps care for street dogs in Thailand. Being a dog lover myself it really escalates my respect for this company, it makes me that much for prone to purchasing thier items in future.
About Keisha & Co
Keisha & Co is a home based business located in Victoria, Australia. They are against animal testing, products are all natural and vegan.
Another thing that has made me love this product is that I can pronounce the entire ingredients list, makes be feel so smart. I’m not completely obsessed with ingredients all the time but I take the small wins like this when I can. There is nothing that has 25 letters long to make it sound fancy only to find out its really evaporated water or something along those lines.
The company is so nice and very interactive on social media. When I placed my order their customer service reached out to give me a tip about using the Clay Cleansing Balm. Since we are in the winter months here in Australia the balm needs to warm up a little to make it easier to work into your skin. This can be done by rubbing it between your fingertips first. I thought that was super sweet for them to give me the heads up instead of just letting me figure it out on my own.
Clay Cleansing Balm
If you are looking for a cleanser that will help with impurities but nourish your skin at the same time, this is one you may want to add to your wish list.
The texture is very thick and creamy, once it’s a little warmed up it turns to a oil and glides easily across your skin. You will want to put this on dry skin if you try with wet or damp skin it won’t work properly.

How I use
I have tried this product as both a first cleanse and a second cleanse. I don’t wear makeup but I am confident enough to say it wouldn’t be ideal to remove your makeup. After trying it on either side of my cleansing routine I like to use it best as a second cleanse but you could experiment to see what works best.
For my first cleanse I use a cleansing oil, micellar water, etc dry off my skin and then apply this. I even leave it on for a minute or so as a mask before washing it off.
To wash it off I use damp hands and massage my face and then use a warm muslin cloth to wipe it off. I have tried to remove it by only using water and my hands but it doesn’t work so you definitely need a soft cloth.
I have tried to remove it using a konjac sponge and that didn’t work neither was using my Clarisonic or Forero. Probably a no brainer for most people but I thought I’d mention it just in case. If one person finds that helpful then I’m willing to look a little silly.
Skin Saviour Beauty Oil
If you are looking for a facial oil that is full of antioxidants and vitamins, this is one you will want to add to this to your everyday routine.
It claims to be ideal for restoring dull, tired or ageing skin, brighten, hydrate and reduce redness combat acne and help with scars.

Pink Grapefruit Oil
My skin responses really well to these 2 products, the cleansing balm makes my skin look very refreshed and the facial oil provides lots of nutrients to my skin. As far as the balm goes I feel like it will last me the rest of my life, it’s a huge bottle and only a little is needed, so it’s definitely worth the price tag.
I have learned with the oil that less is definitely more, I only need a few drops for my skin. If I apply too much it takes much longer to absorb into my skin. From my own personal experience using different oils, I believe this requires less because it’s so pure. Of course, I could just be imagining that but it’s how my skin tends to react.
The packaging is a very thick amber bottle and the dropper for the beauty oil fits so you can use the whole bottle.
In a heartbeat! These two products feel so beautiful on my skin, they have a faint very natural scent to them that makes me feel like I have had a spa experience during my routine.
You can purchase the items separately (Balm $45; Oil $55 or as a duo $85) and they have recently extended their shipping to include international shipping. I definitely recommend signing up for their newsletter for a 20% discount.

Have you tried either or these? Do you prefer natural skincare products or a mixture of both? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
