An amazing everyday cleansing balm gentle enough to use on all skin types daily. Use first as part of your skin routine. The balm will effortlessly melt away make up, SPF and any oils such as sweat or sebum.

To give your face a deep clean follow up with a water based cleanse using a soap bar. This will leave your skin completely clean ready to tone, serum and moisturise.

Your skin will feel incredible due to the natural ingredients such as the apricot stone powder, blackcurrant seed, blue tansy and sea buckthorn oils which are all known for their calming effects.

Reused, repurposed, reloved. Made with finely-ground powder of discarded apricot stones, a natural by-product of the apricot oil industry and rich in antioxidant Vitamin E.



Upcircle have done phenomenally well over the last 5 years, they have taken eco skincare to another level. I have followed them for a number of years and watched their business grow from strength to strength.

Meet William & Anna the brother and sister team who launched Upcircle in 2015 or Optiat as it was formally known.

After a conversation about used coffee grounds they realised just how much was going to landfill, this prompted to do something about it!

Wanting to repurpose those coffee grounds they started collecting them from just one London coffee shop, as they have grown so has the number of coffee houses they now collect from!

Each product in the Upcircle range has been rescued or repurposed from other industries, it’s recycling at its finest!


Use as the first step in your skincare routine. using a coin size amount of product massage into your face using small circular movements until the product is evenly spread around your face. Run a flannel under hot water, wring out excess water and lay across your face for 30 seconds. Wipe any remaining product away.

For a deep cleanse follow on with a water based cleanse, we recommend using a soap bar.
