Disclaimer: AD – this is a sponsored collaboration with Ecooking that I have been paid to feature.
According to the website, “Ecooking is for everyone – regardless of skin type, gender or age,” and when you have a scroll through their shop, you’ll see just how accurate that is. The Ecooking Organic Skincare range is packed full of problem-solving, no-nonsense skincare that’s easy to understand and free from any jargon, so you can quickly and effectively select the products you need to form your bespoke routine. There are so many products available when you logon to the site, you might find the selection a bit overwhelming, but the shop page is set-up so you can reduce the products you’re faced with by selecting specific requirements until you’re presented with only the products you’re interested in, making it an ideal place to create a whole new routine.
Ecooking was founded in 2015 by Tina Søgaard, who started her range with just seven products that she created at her home kitchen and stored in jam jars that she stored in her fridge. She quickly saw results, and started making bespoke products for her family and friends; some of the products are so pure that you can actually eat them, hence the name! Just a few years later and the range is everywhere, with industry smarties, Cult Beauty, being one of the main UK stockists. I always think that if Cult Beauty are willing to take on a range, it’s well worth finding out more.
As I mentioned previously, the Ecooking range is huge, with something to cater for every need, starting with what you’d typically expect from a skincare range, such as the Cleansing Gel (available as standard or fragrance free), moisturisers – Day Cream, Night Cream and Anti-Redness Cream and a host of treatment serums that I’ll detail later. Then there are the balms and oils, of which there are many, depending on your requirements; think lip balms in a host of flavours, everyday balms for ever possible balmy need, oils for face and body and there’s even a range dedicated to male grooming. There’s also a body range with with shower gels, sunscreens, hand creams and there’s also a Washing Up Liquid too!
The treatment serums are where I think Ecooking really shines, as they have such a comprehensive selection of serums to suit all needs and issues; above is a small selection, starting with the Acne Serum which is a spot and oil-fighting treatment with zinc and salicylic acid. The Super Serum is a great all-rounder that deeply hydrates and works particularly well with the Derma Roller, as do the Capsules with Firming Serum, which come in individual portions to ensure the concentration of actives remains protected until you’re ready to use them.
I really love the fact that the range contains a Derma Roller, and a good one too! The needle length of the Ecooking Derma Roller is 0.5mm, which is a really decent length for results, although ease yourself in gently if you’ve never tried one before, as half a mm is surprising powerful! You can use the Dermaroller in a number of ways, either independently, as part of a treatment routine, or to enhance another treatment, such as one of the aforementioned serums. The latter involves applying the serum, then working the Dermaroller over the face to encourage further absorption. The Ecooking Derma Roller comes in a sturdy case with an empty bottle that you can fill with 50/50 alcohol and water to give it a good clean, which is essential for proper hygiene and good skin health.
Finally, another thing Ecooking do really well is treatment masks, such as the Peeling Mask (not pictured as my pot gets a lot of use and consequently wasn’t “photo ready”) which is the number one selling Ecooking product in the UK, and for good reason, as it’s one of those products that drastically improves the look and feel of skin after a single use – it’s the product I reach for when I need my skin to look it’s very best and you can read my full review here. The Peeling Mask is probably the mask that shines the most in the Ecooking range, but I would strongly recommend the Clay Mask, which is a fantastic spot-fighter – I use this directly on spots to shrink them right up, and it works very quickly!
