Day & Night Moisturisers
A Wonder In A Jar
Summary
I have very little wrong to say about this. I was thrilled with the overall effect it had on my skin. I have super sensitive skin and this just made it feel so moisturised but without a greasy build up. Even under makeup, it didn't cause my cosmetics to slide off, as some products I have used in the past, have.

I loved this product! I even took this camping with me, where my skin was constantly at the mercy of the elements and I still had that 'just been to a spa' glow about me. It is pricey but a worthwhile investment nonetheless!

Hemp in balm? You betcha!
Summary
I found this balm to be a really odd texture, not unlike pure coconut oil but without the appealing smell. However, it didn't irritate my eczema and was soothing when it was in a flare on my hands and wrists. Great to pop in your handbag/gymbag for instant hydration fix. Wonderful on wet skin.

I was excited to receive this as I had heard great testimonies to the Body Shop Hemp range. It is solid when cool but melts in heat. It certainly didn't make my eczema worse, which is a huge bonus but it didn't really hydrate the truly dry areas on my...

Innarah Defense Oil. Is it worth it?
Summary
Initially I was thrilled to be sent this high end oil. I am used to lower priced products of this ilk,so couldn't wait to try this out. I have a serious problem area around my mouth, where my skin gets very dry. I don't suffer from acne so I can't comment on its effectiveness against this but for my eczema prone skin, it did sooth and re-hydrate as I expected. They do warn of sediment in the bottle (the product is normally packaged in violet bottles) but I noticed that it also gathers in the dropper and sometimes around the bottle neck. Its something that I know can't be avoided with a natural product like this, but did make me wonder if I was getting the right mix in the dropper? Would I buy this again? I'm afraid not. Its a lovely product and the normal packaging is very classy but its just way to expensive due to its ingredients.

If you have a high beauty budget, I would give this a go as it is certainly effective and has a luxe feel to it. One to watch!

Anar Naturals - A Dry Skin Saviour
Summary
To sum up I loved this! It would make a fantastic gift as the pot is aesthetically pleasing and it has a real luxe feel. Not very practical, granted, but would look beautiful adorning anyone's dressing table. The cream itself is incredibly gentle and smells wonderful. A very rich texture, so some would maybe use this as a night cream but it's surprisingly quick to absorb and lighter than you would expect. It also lasts a long time as a little goes a long way. I have very sensitive skin and this moisturiser helped to soothe and hydrate. A winner for me.

Anar Naturals Facial Cleanser Cream
Summary
Overall I love this product as its paraben free and very soothing. I still use this as its brilliant for my parched, winter skin but would probably steer clear during hot weather due to how rich it is. That said, this isn't greasy but I feel it's more effective as a moisturiser than a deep down cleanser.
