Oy! Organic skincare for young people - A review

You may remember my previous review for Green People and how much I loved their products, so of course I jumped at the chance to road-test some more products with a helping hand (well, face!) from both Miss Ony and Miss Kahonie. The products we were asked to test were the Oy! Cleanse & Moisturise and the Oy! Foaming Clear Skin Face Wash. Both are formulated specifically for sensitive young skin, but include vital skin cleansing ingredients which are so important for the tweens and teens. Of course the products are also suitable for vegetarians (most are vegan) and cruelty-free.
Oy! Is the first certified organic and fairly traded range for young skin. Oy! offers a unique range rich in natural spot-zapping key actives for a clear, blemish-free complexion and gentle, effective products for the body. 
We tried out the products for a month to see if there were any long term benefits or any skin reactions after using the products daily...

The packaging for both was practical, modern and appealing. The products smelt lovely with a fresh, zesty, citrus aroma which would suit both boys and girls. The Cleanse & Moisturise is formulated to be used without water as a combined make-up remover, cleanser and moisturiser. I would say this is better for drier skins like my own, as the girls didn't feel that it cleansed their combination skins efficiently enough, so they used it as a moisturiser instead. Miss Ony and I also tried it out as a make-up remover. It removed most of our make-up efficiently enough, but struggled with waterproof mascara. The foaming Clear Skin Face Wash was was great. It foamed well and one squirt was enough to wash our faces. It left all of our skins feeling cleansed and smelling great. 

13 year old Miss Ony is prone to the odd break-out of spots and she noticed a definite improvement to her skin over the trial period, and ended up with blemish-free skin! Miss Kahonie and I only get the occasional spot, but our faces remained spot free over the trial. None of us had any adverse reaction to the products.

You can buy the full range of Oy! products from
Green People and various other outlets. The products normally retail from £7.95 each but Green People currently some special  special offers on selected products. Click here for more information.
