Perfect Companion: Face Renew Fruit Enzyme Cleanser


I was given a tester of this product and I was mesmerised by the delicate pot it came in. Not quite see through, it was really a lovely looking pot.
When I opened the lid, I noticed the rich citrus scent that was very invigorating and revitalising. My first initial though was "What a perfect moisturiser for the morning".
I took a little from the pot and applied it to my hand, massaging in small neat circles. The absorbtion was brilliant, there was no greasy texture lefton the skin at all.
Going straight for the kill, I massaged some into my freshly cleansed face which was a little tight from using a face wash. Instantly, the tightness was relieved and the product absorbed really well. The scent was so lovely, I felt refreshed and awakened when using it.
The texture is very light, very easy to apply to the skin and absorbs within minutes. 
I did notice an hour later there was still a very light film of the cream on my face which not had fully absorbed, which was amazing as it left my skin really moisturised.
If you massage the skin an hour later, the whole of the cream gets fully absorbed, but if you want a protective light film on the skin, leave it alone.
Skin felt nourished, looked brighter with one application and I was shocked at how my skin looked.
After 1 week of use, I was really surprised that I had no dry skin what so ever, my skin looked clearer and was a lot brighter.
My face looked more toned after a months use and I was quite sad when I had run out. 
So by the end of the month, my face looked amazing. Clear and toned, I felt this was absolutely amazing and beneficial for my dry skin.
I usually struggle with face creams and find most irritate my skin but this did not at all, it actually helped relieve the tightness, the redness had gone and my face was clearer than it had been in a long time.
I know, if used as a 3 step program, cleansing, exfoliating and moisturising, your skin will look amazing. This will be something I will be investing in this summer.
All in all, for organic and natural, this skin care has reached top marks with me and I highly reccomend this for everyone.
As for ageing, I can not comment as I am only 25 and not having any signs of ageing yet.
This has amazing high reviews of this product and I have to say, it is one of the best!

Neal's Yard Geranium and Orange Body Butter

Neal's Yard Remedies are a natural and organic company based in the UK.

Their strong beliefs make their products 100% natural, organic and against animal testing.

You know when you buy their products your body will benefit from the gentle fingers that have made your products and know nothing has been harmed in the process. Carbon neutral and also support a number of charities across the UK.

Every product from Neal's Yard I have used has had an amazingly strong and gorgeous fragrance that keeps you noticing the scent all day long.

This particular product I have to admit is my favourite. This is the geranium and orange body butter.     

                                                                

A little about the butter:

Restores vibrancy to dull and dry skin

Vitamin-rich olive and pumpkin seed oils combined with nourishing shea butter.

Benefits:
· Deeply nourishing
· Uplifting
· Improves suppleness
· Excellent for dull or dry skin

How to Use:
For best results use after exfoliation - works perfectly in combination with Geranium & Orange Body Scrub. Suitable for all skin, specifically dry skin or skin that lacks tone and vitality. Can be used as an after-sun product to moisturise dry or tanned skin.

Olea europaea (Olive) fruit oil*, Butyrospermum parkii (Shea butter)*, Cera alba (Beeswax)*, Curcubita pepo (Pumpkin) seed oil*, Citrus aurantium dulcis (Orange) peel oil*, Pelargonium graveolens (Geranium) oil*, Citral, Citronellol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool.
*Organically produced ingredient. Natural constituent of essential oils listed. Made with 100% organic ingredients.

 

I was very attracted to the bright blue pots which are amazing as they actually help with keepng your products fresher for longer, the blue tint acts as a protector from the sun. Cool huh? 

Once I opened the pot, the first thing I noticed was the grainy texture which bemused me a little. The scent was so gorgeous, it hit me as soon as I opened the lid. Some may think it could be on the strong side but personally I think it is amazing.

I scooped up a little and applied to my arm, noticing straight away that the grainy texture actually turned into a great oily butter that spread across my skin and absorbed really well.

My skin felt so soft after use and the scent left behind was as good as a perfume. Or even better!

I use this when my skin is really dry as this gives a great moisture boost to my skin, even makes tight skin feel more relaxed.

As a bonus, it works really well as an after sun cream too which works really well. The natural oils help soothe and protect the skin.

I am used to body butters being buttery and thick, but this was more oil based, but instead of leaving a film on my skin it actually absorbed so well.

Certainly a different type of body butter that works exceptionally well and certainly worth the money in my eyes as you only need a little to cover your skin effectively.

There are other products in the geranium and orange range, including a gorgeous bubble bath which I shall review soon.

Personal opinion, a must buy!

Melvita Bio-Excellence Moisturising Anti-Ageing Serum

I was very excited to test this new serum especially in light of my recent mission of looking for 100% organic skincare that gives me the results I need. I was dubious at first as many serums are just too rich for my combination and sometimes problematic skin. I have now been testing this product for over 4 weeks and already I have noted some very positive and exciting results. The texture is beautiful and I was amazed at the speed that it is absorbed into the skin. One pump from the great dispenser is all that you need for one application.

P1100663 edited

The serum is an opaque white colour as per the photograph above.

The bottle is white 100% recyclable plastic with an easy dispense nozzle which dispenses just enough product for the entire face

P1100666 edited

 

 As soon as the serum is applied my skin feels smooth, soft and hydrated. The scent is wonderful. There is no added fragrance and you just have natural notes that remind me somewhat of natural honeycomb.... After application at night I see the biggest results as in the morning my skin is oil free, plumped and extremely smooth to the touch. Over the 3 weeks I have been amazed that this serum has actually balance my skin and at present my combination T-Zone is balanced and any breakouts virtually gone! I have also noted that my skin looks more toned and even and in general just healthier! It has had quite a dramatic effect on the fine lines around my mouth which now look less obvious. I like to be experimental with my products and I have also been using this on my neck, decollete and hands. Any crepiness on my neck and have visibly reduced and the backs of my hands are so smooth and soft they actually look like younger hands! After 3 weeks I have a huge amount of serum remaining and with such visible results I have now replaced my previous serum with Melvita. I have recommended this to my sister who has similar skin issues as I am confident that she will see results from this product. I cannot believe that serum this light can be so hydrating, I think that Melvita has captured nature at its best in this product!!

Bernard Chevilliat, Founder

“As a beekeeper, I have learnt the huge benefits that the plant world can offer, provided it is treated with respect."

 

History and Heritage

Melvita was founded in 1983 on the site of a bee farm, deep in the countryside of the Ardèche Gorges, France, by biologist Bernard Chevilliat. He was fascinated by bees and the vital role they play in the ecosystem, and so developed the first Melvita cosmetic range based on products from the hive. Bernard’s passion for beekeeping was the inspiration behind the brand and it was this love of nature and the unspoilt countryside combined with his knowledge of biology that enabled him to develop personal care products as close as possible to nature.

Nature at Heart

Melvita, a reference to life and honey, places “nature at heart” in all of its approaches. In 2002 Melvita was one of the first companies to obtain the ecological and organic Ecocert certification, which covers the method by which the raw ingredients are produced, the formulation, production and quality of the factory, and concern for the environment.

At Melvita, ingredients are organically farmed or responsibly picked to protect and reserve nature at all times. Melvita is involved in a proactive approach that encompasses sustainable development and the preservation of beauty, biodiversity and environmental balance.

Melvita Bio-Excellence Moisturising Anti-Ageing Serum

This extremely gentle fluid will rejuvenate weather beaten and dehydrated skin, to intensely hydrate and help brighten the complexion, for beautiful skin this winter. Formulated with 16 plant-based actives, this fluid combines the anti-ageing properties of Everlasting Flowers and the smoothing properties of Beech Buds, to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The fluid effectively protects skin from environmental stress and aggressions with the powerful antioxidant properties of Cranberry, Raspberry and Blackcurrant, while the moisturising properties of Aloe Vera, Honey and Lemon Pectin revitalise prematurely dehydrated skin and soothe redness, for a completely clear complexion.

Argan Oil multi-purposes skincare benefits

  • Published in admin

Get A Soft And Glowing Skin With Argan Oil

Argan oil is derived from the rare Argan tree that is found exclusively in the south west part of Morocco, roughly between Essaouira and Agadir, in an area covering 700,000-800,000 hectares. The local berber tribes have been making good use of this oil due to its miraculous effects on hair, nails and skin. Argan oil is actually a multi-purposes skincare product that is known to be extremely effective in the treatment of psoriasis, cold sore, and eczema, as well as for burns and deep scars.

Rising Popularity of Argan Oil
At present, Argan oil is being brought into use by a large number of companies, particularly in the beauty industry, due to the amazing benefits that it offers to the skin. After various clinical tests, it has been proved to be extremely effective in the form of toner, moisturizer and firming solvent. The oil is also lightweight, gentle and safe for use on all types of skins. It is a wonderful everyday moisturizer as well and helps in alleviating dry and chapped skin, while balancing acne-prone skin.

Chemical Properties of Argan Oil
Argan oil is very rich in nutrients such as essential fatty acids like Omega 9 and Omega 6. These fatty acids assist in the production of prostaglandin – a natural solution for fighting against inflammation and in reducing swelling and pain. Thus, it is a wonderful oil for massaging to relax the tense and tired muscles of the body. The oil stimulates the blood circulation and leaves you with a healthy and glowing rosy complexion. This oil can be applied to your hair as well to bring shine and softness to you hair. It can also be used to strengthen and fortify dry and brittle nails.

It may be just a pure and simple oil, but Argan Oil is a real nutritional punch. In a nutshell (no pun intended, here), Argan Oil is a moisturizer beyond compare, and undoes damage done by evil UV rays. Here are some details of the skin and hair loving components found in this wonder oil:

Vitamin E (tocopherol). Argan Oil is astoundingly rich in Vitamin E, a potent antioxidant which helps slow the process of lipids from the destructive effects of oxygen (oxidation) as well as other environmental effects. Vitamin E is naturally occurring in skin, and helps the skin function as a water-proof barrier. With age and exposure to sun and pollution, this barrier is broken down and causes a lack of moisture, which damages the skin’s lipids. Many skincare products contain synthetic vitamin E, which helps keep skin hydrated and soft, however it is no match for naturally derived vitamin E, such as that found in Argan Oil.
Essential Fatty Acids. Argan Oil is also incredibly rich in essential fatty acids, which have been scientifically proven to be beneficial both when taken orally, but also when applied topically to skin. Not having enough EFAs can cause conditions in which the skin becomes flakey, dry, scaly and uncomfortable; conditions like psoriasis and eczema, as well as acne. EFAs have an anti-inflammatory effect on skin, and also increase suppleness, elasticity and youthful appearance and relieve painful skin conditions. Exposure to UV also decreases the skin’s EFAs, and so treating sun damaged skin with Argan Oil has been shown to repair damage to photo-aged skin, as well as on scarring.
For hair, EFAs prevent breakage and promote smooth and supple strands by increasing moisture content, which is the single best thing that can be done for your hair. Just a drop or two of Argan oil smoothed through brittle hair, from roots to tips, will improve its condition in no time. It also treats dandruff and itchy scalp.
Carotenes. Carotenes, found in Argan Oil, as well as in many fruits and veggies, is a precursor to vitamin A. Vitamin A, also known as Retinol, has been garnering a lot of attention from the beauty industry in the past few years. It is effective as an anti-aging ingredient in cosmetics, by protecting the skin from sun damage, and undoing damage already done. It also helps even skin tone, and adds a healthy glow. For hair, it counteracts fragility, reduces split ends and encourages a healthy sparkle.
Squalene. Squalene is found naturally in all plants and animals. As an additive in cosmetics, it penetrates skin easily and is absorbed readily, without leaving a greasy residue and is non-irritating. It does not cause skin to breakout, and is effective in healing scar tissue and preventing stretch marks. Squalene may also reduce hair loss and is a highly effective conditioning agent.

Tips for Organic Health Care using Argan Oil
If you have extremely dry skin, spread Argan oil all over your body before you take your bath. Wait for a minimum of fifteen minutes and then soak your entire body in a warm bath. You will be able to feel the difference in your skin texture immediately.

Before going to bed, cleanse your entire face and then apply Argan oil on it. Next, morning you will wake up with rejuvenated skin. In case of any acne outbreak, apply directly to the affected area.

If you are suffering from cold sores, massage the oil on the affected area immediately on feeling any irritation.

Use Argan Oil for giving yourself a reviving and soothing massage. Being anti-inflammatory, it relaxes the tired body to a great extent. It can also be used for arthritic joints and aching muscles due to the high content of fatty acids in it.

For woman, to moisturize and nourish the facial skin, apply a little Argan oil after cleaning up your face and let is absorb thoroughly. Once it is soaked up properly, apply makeup on your face. Always remember to use it as a precursor to makeup.

Supporting women

All argan sold today is produced by a women's cooperative that shares the profits among the local women of the Berber tribe. The cooperative has established an ecosystem reforestation project so that the supply of argan oil will not run out and the income that is currently supporting the women will not disappear. The money is providing healthcare and education to the local women, and supporting the entire community as a whole.

According to the Department of Water and Forests, Argan oil provides income for 3 million people in the southern part of the kingdom. The oil provides a total of 20 million workdays per year. Its operation is an income generating activity and has always had a socio-economic function.

The vast majority of the production of argan oil passes through the women's cooperative of Argan oil. A program that focuses on improving the working conditions of rural women economic activities, generating additional income and sustainable management of argan areas in the south-west of Morocco.

Co-sponsored by the Social Development Agency (ADS) with the support of the European Union, the UCFA (Union des Cooperatives des Femmes de l’Arganeraie) is the largest union of cooperatives for argan in Morocco. It comprises twenty-two cooperatives that are found everywhere in the region(i.e. Coopérative Al Amal, Coopérative Amalou N'Touyag, Coopérative Tissaliwine, Coopérative ArganSense, Coopérative Maouriga). These women come together to be better organized and thus guarantee a fair income through cooperatives, allowing them a better living environment and a dynamic local.

Women cooperatives in Morocco work within a biosphere protected by UNESCO which ensures its protection and reforestation.

NHR Organic Rose Essential Oil is the most divine gift for Valentine's Day

  • Published in admin

There are around 600 rose flowers used to make the 0.5ml of pure Organic Rose Otto essential oil from NHR Organic Oils. You only need to use a few drops on your skin to feel that you are seriously nourishing your self.

Extracted by steam distillation from the petals which are hand picked at dawn when the fragrance is at its best.

Sensual, rosy, honey floral scent, incredibly decadent as a perfume, exquisitely luxurious added to a bath, or delicious applied to the face as a night oil.

One of the favourite ways to use this product is to massage a couple of drops just under the collar bones (both sides). Usually there is a hollow area here, it is an area where many of us close in or contract ourselves around the heart -our shoulders hunch or become rounded. This technique supports us to open up the heart area, to become aware of when our bodies are contracting, and to be open to love.

Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil 5% blended in Organic Sunflower oil 10ml, £14.60
