Back in September last year, I tried and reviewed the glorious Whackit Beauty Mean Green Superfood Drops. And I’m still enjoying my bottle of the multi-tasking green facial oil that’s 100% natural and vegan!
I’ve stayed in touch with this small indie brand and their lovely founder Saman over the months, and today I’m delighted to introduce their recent rebrand! Say hello to Beauty Cleanse Skincare!
What’s changed? There’s a new name, new branding, and a new addition to the product family – Carrot Algae Marine Drops, plus of course redesigned packaging for the much loved Mean Green Superfood Drops facial oil.
Committed to creating high-performance sustainable products through drawing upon the power of natural ingredients to address skincare concerns of fast & urban lifestyles.
The values remain – slow beauty, cold-pressed oils from British suppliers, caring for our planet, and no added suspicious additives. This brand really cares about your skin – you can even join their Whatsapp group to talk about your isolation skincare concerns.
Now we know more about Beauty Cleanse Skincare, let’s take a look at the facial oils now, and learn why Gua Sha can help to counteract the effects of stress on our skin.

Carrot Algae Marine Drops
Featured in May’s edition of Vogue, the latest member of the Beauty Cleanse Skincare family is the wonderful Carrot Algae Marine Drops. Suitable for all skin types, these drops are specially for your face, the under-eye area, and for facial massage with or without a massage tool.
It’s touted as containing some of nature’s best performing and regenerating plant oils, and promises to strengthen skin’s resilience to fatigue and inner-stress. They say: wake up to hydrated, de-stressed and youthful-looking skin with improved radiance.
As for the ingredients, I love that this oil is a rich source of antioxidants, thanks to wild-harvested carrot and rosehip oils, both packed with natural vitamin A. In fact, the carrot seed oil used in this botanical formula is upcycled from carrots rejected for food use, further adding to this product’s eco credibility!
Squalane, perilla, and camellia seed oils protect your skin from premature ageing, while microalgae detoxifies acne-prone skin, loading it with extra vitamins and minerals to maintain a youthful appearance.
My experience with Carrot Algae Marine Drops
The facial oil comes in a white glass bottle with a dropper applicator. The colour is bright and looks so healthy! The oil has the natural aroma of earthy, sweet carrots.
I absolutely love the glow this facial oil brings to my skin! I really can’t wait to use it for longer to see if it reduces the dark circles under my eyes. I’ve also found it minimises the appearance of my fine lines. My skin looks really refreshed and perky!
Using Carrot Algae Marine Drops and Gua Sha as your lockdown skincare saviour
I was encouraged by Saman to try Gua Sha for the first time using the new Carrot Algae Marine Drops. I’m not a big one for trends, and most are treated with a dose of skepticism before I part with any money. But I learned that Gua Sha is actually an ancient form of self-massage used for centuries by Chinese women.
It’s early days, but I really believe Gua Sha will make a difference to my skin. Why? During stressful times, blood flows away from face and towards the larger muscles of the body. This ages our skin. But Gua Sha massage applies a gentle pressure to the skin to increase blood flow to the skin in the face. This has an anti-ageing effect.

I’ve found Carrot Algae Marine Drops and Gua Sha a really relaxing and rejuvenating antidote to the stressful and sad situation we find ourselves in during the coronavirus lockdown.
