The Cyclax company was founded in 1896 by Frances Hamilton Forsyth, under the name of Mrs. Frances Hemming in London. It’s one of the worlds oldest cosmetics companies still in existence! In 1939 Cyclax started to provide beauty kits to servicewomen which included their famous ” Auxilary Red lipstick” the company was granted a Royal Warrant by 1961. During the 1970s Cyclax was bought by Lehman Brothers Inc, which lead to rebranding and new products being added to their range. Cyclax was then sold to Cooper Laboratories, before being sold on again to British American Cosmetics. It has changed hands a number of times over the years, but all the while still creating new products. In 2018 Cyclax was acquired by Three Pears International Wholesale, who are “committed to 100% UK manufacture of all Cyclax products”

I have 2 products from the Cyclax Moistura range. A range particularly good if you are like me and have dry dehydrated skin. The first of the products is the Moistura Cleanser/Toner, which is a 2 in 1 product. I have been loving using this first thing in the morning.
The lovely fresh smell just livens up the senses as I use it. I have tried two ways of using the cleanser/toner. The first way by massaging over the face and then removing with a face cloth. It works for me! The second is to pour the cleanser/toner onto a damp cotton pad and swipe over the face. It works for me too! I have used it to remove makeup, and although it struggled to remove all my eye makeup in one go, it didn’t sting my eyes to go in for a second time. But it really does leave my skin feeling fresh and cleansed without being left dry and tight. A really lovely cleanser/toner that I am enjoying using.
The second Cyclax product is a delightful moisturiser. This is the Moistura Daily Moisturiser for Normal/Dry skin.
The first thing I noticed from this cream is the subtle smell of, well to me it was rose, but checking the ingredients there is no rose in the cream. It does contain Witch Hazel so maybe that is what the fragrance is, and it’s rather lovely. It also has lanolin and Beeswax within, so it isn’t suitable for vegans. This is a lightweight cream but it certainly packs in some moisture. It’s a perfect moisturiser for this time of year if you do prefer a lighter day cream but still need the hydration too. It’s been keeping my skin nice and moisturised all day until I’m ready to do my night time routine. As for the Cyclax Daily Moisturiser under foundation, it works perfectly for me whether I am using a matte or dewy foundation.
You will find all the Cyclax products in many chemists/pharmacies, and both independent and national retailers. I’ve also seen them on the Fragrance Direct and Amazon websites. If you would like to see the complete Cyclax range you will find them HERE.
