We love PHB Ethical Beauty. Find out what our customers have to say about the range of PHB Ethical Beauty products.

I adore this soap! It is great for sensitive skin and smells lovely, without being obtrusive. This is my first PHB soap and I can't wait to try the another ones.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Ethical Palm Oil Free Aloe Vera Soap 100g

This foundation is the best natural foundation I have tried (and yes I have tried a lot)! It doesn't break me out, it applies well on my dry, sensitive skin. It has good coverage. Don't stop selling this please! I had never heard of this brand before, well worth trying.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation +SPF 30 - Medium Rose 30g

It didn't irritate my eyes and stayed put for quite some time.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow - Amethyst 3g

I've only recently come across the PHB Ethical Beauty Pressed Mineral Eyeshadows and have been really impressed (I now own 3)! The shade Grape is the perfect shade for autumn. The colour is buildable and leaves a gorgeous, subtle shimmer to the lid. Highly recommend!

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow - Grape 3g

Awesome! The first BB cream I've been able to wear without any breakout! I ordered the porcelain shade and it's perfect for my very light cool skin. It is thick yet not greasy, so you have to quickly blend it before it settles and dries on your face. For combination mature skin like mine I would advise applying a moisturiser before the BB cream. It smoothes out the skin and blurs defects and gives a velvety finish. The sunscreen included is a plus. On me it lasted all day without getting shiny. If you add a light dusting of mineral powder it'll look like full coverage makeup.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Botanical BB Cream +SPF 15 - Porcelain 30g

Great product! I used to hate BB creams and had stopped using them. This PHB BB cream is the first that agrees with my mature combination skin, doesn't generate breakout, doesn't create any shine or glimmer, provides good yet natural coverage and stays on all day long. It doesn't emphasize wrinkles either. For very dry skin, I'd recommend using a good moisturizer under it, though. It's a thick cream that settles quickly so you need to blend it in as fast as possible. With a light dusting of powder on top of it, it'll look like full foundation makeup. Even without powder, it gives a velvety finish. Really perfect.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Botanical BB Cream +SPF 15 - Porcelain 30g

I have been very impressed with this PHB Ethical Beauty eye shadow.I've been wearing this on my eyes almost daily. It really helps to make my look more awake.I will definitely be adding more to my collection.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow - Smokey Quartz 3g

Excellent for a natural (but not too subtle)look. It lasts long and gives good definition. Most importantly,I found it's the only natural mascara so far tried that can withstand the occasional watery eye without running or smudging.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Brown All-In-One Mascara 10ml

Really goes on easily. Does not smudge and mascara lasts all day.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Black All-In-One Mascara 10ml

My eyes are quite sensitive and this product doesn't seem to irritate them. It stays put and gives a good result.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Black All-In-One Mascara 10ml

Simple and effective, used won't disappoint, great with eye lash curler. Stays put longer than some other high end natural mascaras.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Black All-In-One Mascara 10ml

It was better than I expected, and much better than the clinique I have tried, which was pricier. I have sensentive eyes and this did not irritate them at all, and it did not smudge or move. I really recomend this for someone who wants a good mascare that gives a naturall finish.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Black All-In-One Mascara 10ml

This primer creates an ideal base for mineral foundation. My pores would always get clogged up, but I don't have this problem when using the primer. It also really works to minimize pores and filling in lines, which make the skins looks more flawless. Also, it doesn't make my acne worse at all. It's actually a bit soothing.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Pressed Mineral Primer 9g

This has been what I've been reaching for to keep my summer glow going! It gives a natural, sunkissed looked. A great product and a great price too.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Pressed Mineral Bronzer +SPF 15 - Sunkissed 9g

I love this blusher, I was worried it might be a bit wishy washy but it has a really strong colour pay off that lasts pretty well. This is a lovely colour and it's gives a natural look with a very subtle sheen. I think it will last a long time too, as you only need to use a tiny bit. It makes me want to try more products in this line, the mascara is also excellent.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Pressed Mineral Blusher +SPF 15 - Camelia 9g

reasonable sized sample. though I tend to prefer eye cream to gel, this was lovely to use and smelt gorgeous. only a small amount needed, both mornings and evenings, so the sample lasted me some weeks.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Brightening Eye Gel with Organic Eyebright & Neroli 15ml

good sized sample, which lasted me ages. like the application and also the scent. used both mornings and evenings under moisturiser.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Brightening Gel Serum with Organic White Birch & Frankincense 50ml

The first serum I've ever used and will go on using. Perfect after cleaning with PHB brightening face wash in the morning. Very refreshing and invigorating smell. Can actually replace a toner as well. Is quickly absorbed and has no adverse effects on my mature sensitive allergy and acne prone skin. I must admit I have only noticed some slight lightening of my dark spots, though. Yet my whole face looks brighter. I heartily recommend it and will repurchase it for sure.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Brightening Gel Serum with Organic White Birch & Frankincense 50ml

Awesome! I actually find it more efficient at moisturising the hands than the anti-aging hand cream from the same brand. My hands immediately feel soft and regenerated after application. It's too early to say if it's going to diminish age-spots. The fragrance is very pleasant but too strong to use at night-time so it'll be my day hand cream. As with all PHB Ethical Beauty products, it's really top-of-the-range. Though expensive, the brand definitely deserves more recognition. I recommend it to all organic fads and also allergy-prone people.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Brightening Hand Cream with Neroli & Ylang Ylang 50ml

This anti-aging moisturiser has a very lovely smell and I like the way it leaves my skin. I would definitely recommend it.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Anti-aging Moisturiser with Monoï Oil and Gardenia 50ml

Divine fragrance, not too strong which makes it pleasant to apply on hands just before going to bed, absorbs quickly without leaving the hands greasy. Doesn't feel very moisturising, though, so I'll know more about its efficiency when it gets cold. I can't say yet whether it actually rejuvenates hands as I've only used it for a week. However, as all the PHB Ethical Beauty products I've bought, it's top quality.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Rejuvenating Hand Cream with Jasmine & Galbanum 50ml

Surprisingly pleased with this shampoo. Been on the hunt for a shampoo without nasties in that I can also use on my Brazilian blow dry...an impossible mission! This shampoo was a good consistency, smells good, cleanses well and leaves my hair nice and soft!

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Clarifying Shampoo with Argan & Vanilla 250ml

The cream is richer than I thought. It's non greasy though, and I have noted that my skin got more luminous after a couple of weeks using it.
The only thing I dislike is the packaging - it could be more hygienic. Because it is preservative free, I am a bit afraid that I won't be able to use the totality of it.
However, used combined with the Brightening serum, I think that the results are truly excellent.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Brightening Moisturiser with Immortelle Argan & Licorice 50ml

This product has a strong but nice smell. My skin is sensitive with dry patches and this product moisturises quite a lot. However, I´ll need something richer for the winter.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Brightening Moisturiser with Immortelle Argan & Licorice 50ml

I fell in love with this conditioner. Though the smell is not as fruity as I expected it to be (that's why it got only 4 stars). My hair has become pretty soft after the second use already. I can recommand this product.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Restoring Conditioner with Citrus & Chamomile 250ml

I good size compact pump dispenser. I have very dry hands and use this as a night time hand cream. I use several pumps at a time which keeps my hands moisturised all night.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Restoring Hand Cream with Rosemary & Chamomile 50ml

I have just started using this gel and think I have found an amazing treatment for the back of my hands, it smells divine and leaves a silky sheen on the skin. I will use on my face next and see what happens.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Skin Brighten Gel with Neroli & Immortelle 120ml

I recently decided to gradually replace my old makeup with ethical brands as and when things ran out...so I was looking for a neutral 'day' colour that didn't look as if I was wearing no make-up at all. I think PHB might be my new favourite make-up brand!
Tea Rose is a really pretty subtle and natural pinky-brown. It perfectly suits my fair skinned redhead's complexion but I think would suit most people looking for a neutral colour.
It adheres well to the lips, is well-pigmented and has just the right amount of sheen without being shiny.It lasts quite a good length of time, especially if you blot with a tissue and re-apply. It won't last all day, obviously, but it's certainly as long-lasting as any other non-ethical brands I've used. I didn't have to re-apply it any more than I do with any other lipstick.
The only slight negative for me is that whilst it goes on nice and creamy, I found it left my lips slightly dry at the end of the day. Hence only 4 stars. I just get round that by using a good lip balm, and for me, it's worth it for the excellent colour and the ethical credentials. I'm certainly going to be buying more colours and trying the glosses and glazes.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty 100% Pure Organic Lipstick - Tea Rose 10g

Good serum for mature or dry skin. Doesn't make me break out. Quite rich so I recommend using it in cold season or only at night in summer. Nice smell. Is quickly absorbed.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Anti-aging Gel Serum with Organic Rose & Sea Buckthorn 50ml

This is a fabulous body scrub especially if you have dry or sensitive skin. It feels a bit rough on the skin but acts as a great exfoliating scrub. It dissolves quite quickly so if ordering probably best to buy 2 or 3 at a time. Skin feels wonderful afterwards. Did not need to moisture the skin after as it left a slight oily texture . Would buy this product again.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Peppermint Handmade Sugar Scrub 100g

This shampoo has a lovely smell but for the complicated nature of my hair I prefer a bar shampoo instead. Still, I use it one time per week instead of my normal shampoo and it does a good job. The downside is that it doesn't lather that much.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Volumising Shampoo with Tea Tree & Lime 250ml

Not a big fan of this. It leaves my skin looking quite good initially, but starts to peel off after a while, making my face look dry. Difficult to know how much to use, not helped by the pot - would prefer a tube/ pump bottle. But I feel that long-term use has left my skin looking brighter.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Skin Brighten Gel with Neroli & Immortelle 120ml

Hmm. Not quite sure how to describe this, it's an odd colour. Not cranberry nor the warm red described, but more of a deep pinkish plum with a metallic overtone. Very disappointed that it's not as shown but it's an ok colour in itself. Don't love it though, and not sure if I will keep it. I was admiring some of the other PHB lipsticks, but given this experience I don't think I can trust their photos and descriptions so won't be trying any more.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty 100% Pure Organic Lipstick - Cranberry 10g

Really disappointing. Too thick, very difficult to blend which you have to do quickly before it dries. It settles in all the pores and emphasizes them. It gives a plaster mask-like finish to the face, even if you apply finishing powder over it. It is undoubtedly good for the skin, no breakout and no irritation, however it's not an efficient foundation, underneath the mask you can see all the flaws.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Pure Skin Organic Liquid Foundation +SPF 30 - Cream 30g

The first thing I noticed about this BB cream was a really odd odour when applying it. It's bordering on unpleasant.
It is a good colour though for pale Anglo-Saxon people - 'fair' or 'light' in other brands still tends to be too orange/tanned, but this is about right.
It takes a little bit of working in to the skin, looks patchy at first, but keep at it and it will blend in.
It's not moisturising enough for the approaching winter, so I have started using another moisturiser underneath. Should be ok for warmer months.
I don't love it, so my hunt for a BB cream with spf and a pale enough colour continues.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Botanical BB Cream +SPF 15 - Fair 30g

Skin type: dry, sensitive.

I didn't find this body lotion as moisturising as I'd hoped but I do have ridiculously dry skin. Having said that the lavender means it's the perfect addition to any bed time ritual - just massage into hands and feet and feel instantly calmer.

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Soothing Body Lotion with Organic Lavender 250ml

I really wanted this to work because I bought the other PHB skincare for anti aging and the tonic was part of my routine, but after using it for nearly 2 weeks every evening last night this severely burnt my face!
Whatever is in it my skin does NOT like!!
Sadly, I had to bin it as I don't want to risk using it again :(

Review of PHB Ethical Beauty Anti-Aging Facial Tonic with Melissa 100ml

I'm very disappointed with this foundation. When reading the product description it sounded perfect for my dry skin but when applying it was absolutely horrible.. I never had such a bad foundation, it's flaky and doesn't seem to be intended for dry skin at all. Waste of money :(
