Pai Geranium & Thistle Moisturiser

The offer to try some products from the Pai organic skin care range came at a perfect time for me. I have mentioned that my skin was a little irritated over the summer months. I had various areas of raised red bumps and my skin felt quite itchy. I wasn't really sure what had caused it but suspected sunscreens. I was in desperate need of something that felt soothing on my skin.


I have been using the Geranium & Thistle Moisturiser for a month now. This particular formula is designed for combination skin. My T-zone is definitely more oily in the summer months and this formula is perfect. It's still sufficiently hydrating for drier areas like my cheeks. It has an almost whipped texture which I really enjoy and smells delicious! I use two pumps to cover my face and neck.

I have been using the cream morning and night and I have seen a great improvement in my skin. It is no longer irritated and the cream has been very soothing to apply. The only downside is that my fine lines are more visible around my eye area so I would probably need to use this in combination with a serum in future to tackle the less exciting aspects of my age!


The Pai skin care products are designed for sensitive and allergy-prone skin. Pai products are organic and are certified by the Soil Association. The ingredients are clearly labelled on the packaging and they are also listed on their website, so you would instantly be able to spot anything you wouldn't get on with. Please note that these do contain essential oils. I found the Geranium & Thistle cream very soothing and would happily recommend it.

The Geranium & Thistle moisturiser costs £24 for 30ml. There are also three other moisturisers in their range which cater for sensitive skin, dry/mature skin and normal/dry skin. Pai products are available from, and directly from their website,

  1. I tried out a sample set from the website which had this and the sensitive skin moisturiser. I do like the texture of their moisturisers, they feel very comfortable on the skin.

  2. I have recently discovered - and fallen in love with! - the Pai range and, in particular, couldn't live without their cleanser.

    Have you tried it?

  3. I love Pai, I am amazed at the textures of all the moisturisers which are so, well, moisturising! but are not heavy or claggy (technical term there ;-) Thanks Jane, great review x

  4. I keep seeing positive reviews about Pai. I am so glad it helped calm down your skin, and I must say--what an incredible list of ingredients. It reads like real, human, pronounceable words! And not gluten ingredients (like wheat protein), yay!
