Arabelle Skin Sense products are pure, natural and simply luxurious. Made in small batches to ensure freshness at all times and using only the highest quality natural ingredients available.
Many people have the misconception that to have a very effective anti-aging skincare, the product must have scientific or man-made ingredient developed in a lab with a fancy name ending in ‘lox’, ‘tox’ and the list goes on. We seem to forget that nature was here long before science and will be here long after. I can tell you where a name like ‘boswelox’ comes from. ‘Boswelox’ was coined from Boswelia Carteri which is the Latin name for the very impressive frankincense essential oil. Frankincense essential oil does help to relax facial expression lines over a period.
Our mature skin range Stay Young contains the frankincense essential oil to do what it does best and help combat the signs of aging.
We have also used Strawberry Seed Oil in our moisturiser for mature skin. Strawberry Seed Oil is high in Alpha Linolenic Acid which helps to repair the skin’s moisture retaining barriers. This ensures that the skin holds on to a lot of moisture to keep the skin plump. The serum for this range is indeed extra special!
Pomegranate Seed Oil, the star oil, is rich in punicic acid, ellagic acid and tocopherols, which help promote collagen synthesis, thus improving the skins’ elasticity, strengthening and repairing the epidermis, making it ideal for mature and dry skin. It is emollient and helps soften and soothe the skin, making it perfect for irritated and sensitive skin types too. It also contains phyto-oestrogens and may help protect against UV damage.
This is natural skincare at its best. All these vitamins and minerals are occurring naturally at high potency in the Pomegranate Seed oil.
If you have mature skin and use the Fight Back serum religiously, it will help to bring a change and difference in your skin texture and tone. This nutrient rich serum is an intense skin treatment product which is dense with minerals, vitamins and acids but still stays within the organic skin care tag. All this achieved without any synthetics, chemicals or artificial ingredients from a lab. It is easy to use – 2 -4 pumps onto clean dry skin and massage upwards. You may also add a little to your day moisturiser.
Now, let’s talk about the dreaded oily skin sufferer.
Our No Flaw range was created purely on natural skin care basis to combat oiliness. Contrary to popular belief, putting oil on oily skin will not make it more oily or greasy. Au contraire!
Our No Flaw Oil Cleanser is made with very special oils such as Organic Castor oil, cold pressed Olive oil with a special blend of essential oils such as tea tree, lemongrass, lemon, and ylang-ylang to control oil. Its simplicity in use means you do not have to wipe off your make up before using it. The cleanser can go straight onto your face and even waterproof mascara. Massage the oil thoroughly into your skin and problematic areas. Then wipe off with a hot face towel. Voila! Thoroughly cleansed face without the use of detergents (for even oily skin) but rather just pure natural skincare ingredients for effective cleansing.
Many oily skin suffers tend to use ‘oil free’ and alcohol laden products in the bid to make the skin matt. This however, strips the skin of much needed oils and forces the skin to produce even more oil! This perpetuates the condition and the oily skin sufferer is stuck in cycle.
For this troublesome skin type, we have created a very gentle yet effective toner using natural skin care ingredients. Lavender and witch hazel water combined with essential oils of Bergamot, Sandalwood, Lemon and Lemongrass to keep oil production under control. Pump once or twice and a very fine mist will be sprayed on your skin. Do not wipe off. Use your moisturiser or serum afterwards
Our skin treatment serum for the oily skin is made with special oils cold pressed oils such as hazelnut, grape seed – these oils have astringent benefits. The very special oil however is the Papaya Seed Oil contains the enzyme papain that helps dissolve excess sebum and impurities on the skin, gently removes dead skin cells to help speed up cell renewal. It has antibiotic properties and may benefit skin irritations. It is also high in Omega 6 and 9, Vitamins A & C and Potassium and due to its light texture it is easily absorbed and will not stay on the skin. Continued use of the No Flaw range will trick the skin into thinking it does not need to produce so much oil. This eventually should bring the skin to normality. So you see, great skin can be achieved by using natural skin care.

It is the epitome of pampering your skin. Our Body Oil is mineral oil and paraffin free and goes on like liquid silk; It will deeply hydrate, moisturise and leave your skin dewy. The essential oil blends provide something for every mood. The aroma is not ‘perfume-like’ due to the essential oil blends. Are you feeling sensual or you need to be stimulated? Or you just want to spoil your skin just because you can. These Body Oils are also therapeutic as they contain only essential oils.
Luxury Body Butter
Real body butters do not and should not contain any water hence the name ‘Butter’. Our Body Butters are Preservative Free!
These body moisturisers have a firmer texture compared to our Whipped Body Crèmes and are extremely rich in oils for the hydration and nourishment of your skin. They are perfect for dry skin of any type and can be used to combat greyness and bring lustre and a beautiful glow to your skin. There is absolutely no preservative. We’ve used only Rosemary Extract which is a very powerful anti-oxidant to preserve the butters and oils and also to help fight free radicals. They are all concentrated yet light in weight and a little goes a long way. Which one would you like to indulge in?
Facial Oil Cleansers
Restore your face with natural oils without detergents. Oils are nourishing, use it to your advantage…
Oil Cleansing is based on the fact that ‘oil dissolves oil’. It is a natural way to create radiantly clear and dewy skin using only hot water, a washcloth and unprocessed carefully blended oils. Do not use soap and other caustic synthetic cleansers, scrubs and moisturisers, and turn instead to the most natural, time-honoured facial trick of all: cleaning your skin with oils. We have blended different oils for different skin types and also enriched the cleansers with carefully blended essential oils which make them therapeutic to pamper your skin. Our cleansing oils do not contain emulsifiers so you get the full goodness of all the oils. This type of cleansing will be a big change for many however, those who persist with it, are often very pleased with the result.
THERAPEUTIC TONERS: Facial toners are a vital part in skincare – equally as important as cleansing and moisturising.
Toning your skin after cleansing ensures that all the final traces of your cleanser have been wiped off and your skin is ready for your moisturiser. Toning completes the cleansing process. It also refines and tightens pores. Removes excess oil from the skin. Refreshes tired complexion. Increases blood circulation. It restores your skin’s natural pH balance. Improves skin tone. Reduces oil secretion. Speeds up cell turnover. Promotes sloughing of dead skin cell.
Our toners are made from hydrolats/hydrosols and are ALCOHOL FREE. These are the steam collected from distillation of plants and flowers to produce essential oils. The by-product is the plant waters that still maintain a lot of the goodness and nutrients of the plant. Our toners are carefully blended to suit the various skin types.
Moisturising your skin properly and keeping a vigilant skincare will be your key to maintaining beautiful skin as the years roll by.
Our moisturisers are made to be used hand in hand with our oil cleansers. They are very light in texture and you will hardly notice that you are wearing a moisturiser. After oil cleansing, your skin is already deeply hydrated so you will not need a heavy moisturiser. We have created these light, yet nutrient rich moisturisers for every skin type. The oils we use contain vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids and will hydrate and nourish your skin and help to restore radiance. There are star ingredients such as strawberry seed oil, cucumber oils, silk amino acids and many more…
Serums are the perfect sleeping partners and perfect for skincare treatment. They are nearly always concentrated in vitamins, anti-oxidants, minerals and replenish what the elements strip away during the day.
Your body gets to repair itself at night whilst you are asleep; a perfect time for the nutrients and vitamins in our serums to repair and restore your skin. These serums/bio-oils are very rich in vitamins such as Vitamin K also known as Q10 (a real anti-aging fighter), A, B, B1, C, D, E, Omega 3, 6, 9 and many more! Serums are the one natural skincare product you should always have. Serums/Bio-Oils definitely feed your skin, help you battle against the elements and maintain it for the many years to come. You may use it in the day by adding a little bit to your moisturiser but preferably at night alone on clean dry skin.
Our lips are our focal point so dry lips on even the most beautiful skin, will surely get noticed. These 100% Organic Lip Balms are effective at keeping the lips hydrated without the use of petroleum jelly.
To get your lips noticed for the right reason, use one of our balms to deeply moisturise hydrate, protect and stay on. These lip balms are very special because they are 100% organic and come in irresistible flavours.
The Shea and Cocoa butter in these lip balms are unrefined and Fairtrade – made by hand by women in Ghana under a Fairtrade cooperative.
Shea butter is also a natural protector from the UV rays of the sun. We have steered clear of synthetic wax and petroleum jelly which are in many commercial lip balms and are no good for your lips. Did you know that petroleum jelly just creates a greasy barrier over your lips and doesn’t actually moisturise them at all? This explains why it slides off easily. Our lip balm moisturises your lips and stays on. Plus a little goes a long way! It is a firm texture so just use your finger tips to rub and dab on lips…
Bath/shower time is a time to relax, unwind, recharge, recollect your thoughts or let it run wild. Bath time is very special.
Our gentle Castile Soaps are suitable for all skin types. They are all very subtly fragranced with essential oils.
Made from organic pure sunflower oil, coconut oil, and vegetable glycerine our Organic Liquid Castile soaps are so gentle they can be used to cleanse babies’ skin. They can be used as a shower gel, face wash or shampoo, however, we would not recommend them for fine or flyaway hair as the oil content may make it flat and lifeless. It will not produce a sudsy or foamy lather as it contains no artificial foamers and although gentle without any chemicals or synthetics, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and nourished. The soap is very moisturising and nutrient rich by itself, but we’ve added essential oils for subtle aroma and to indulge your senses while you bathe. Due to the straight forward nature of the soap, it means it is more environmentally friendly as there is less waste produced when making it and it is more bio-degradable than other soaps.
We will also be introducing extremely luxuriant, sophisticated, irresistible and seductive Bath Oils soon…
