Be beautiful with our guide to Yorkshire’s best beauty brands and the products to go for.
Spruce Willis salt facial steam | Salt + Steam | £8.50 | North Yorkshire
Based in the heart of North Yorkshire, all of Salt + Steam’s products are handmade using both Dead Sea and Himalayan salt. While the business offers all kinds of skincare and bath products, the facial steam salts are the highlight of the selection, as the brand’s name might suggest. The salts work equally well in a full bath or a bowl of hot water, cleansing and soothing your skin. Mimic a walk in the forest with the cleverly named Spruce Willis scent, featuring juniper, cypress, and frankincense.
Glow face polish | Kiss the Moon | £30 | Richmond
Established in 2019 in Richmond, Kiss the Moon aims to provide a good night’s sleep through the use of beauty products. The Yorkshire-based business’ entire range is 100% natural, cruelty free, and made in the UK. One particular product to look out for is the Glow after dark face polish which smooths and softens skin while quieting your mind for bedtime, with scents of orange, myrrh, geranium, and litsea.
Yorkshire Rose body lotion | The Yorkshire Soap Company £7.50 | York
One of Yorkshire’s most beloved beauty brands, The Yorkshire Soap Company offer all kinds of uniquely shaped soaps and other beauty items. Check out the range of body lotions sure to help you on the path to silky soft skin. Made with natural fragrances and gentle moisturising ingredients including cocoa butter, vitamin E, and grape seed oil, the Yorkshire Rose scent is one to try for any proud Yorkshire folk.
Signature lip balm | Clockface Beauty | £7.95 | York
Run by mother-daughter duo Sarah Thomas and Karen Horsley, Clockface Beauty was set up to champion natural aging and care for the skin throughout all stages of life. The brand is careful to use 100% natural, vegan, organic and cruelty-free ingredients, and ensures total transparency of labelling for those whose priority is ethical consumption. The signature lip balm is one to try, designed for a hit of hydration, as well as long-term benefits for your lips.
Clay Face Mask | Let’s Get Lathered | £7.50 | Pontefract
Originally setting up as an online business in 2017, Let’s Get Lathered soon expanded to a brick-and-mortar shop in Pontefract. The retailer offers a range of skincare products, but the ones we’d recommend trying out are the clay face masks. Clay masks are great for opening and clearing pores, and few things feel more soothing than relaxing at the end of a long day with a face mask on. Let’s Get Lathered’s masks come in a range of scents, including lavender, bergamot, rose, and grapefruit.
