A.S Apothecary THE Face Cream!

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and getting ready for Autumn & Winter and getting ‘Hygge with it!’ I have just bought a nice bright purple ultra fluffie bead spread for my bed which my cats will steal on me! I am sure come the cold weather we will all be glued to it lol.

Come Autumn I am always planning what skincare I need to take me through the days where my heating is on full blast because it really dries my skin out. So when I tried this A.S Apothecary face cream I had a real oh WOW moment!

Amanda Saurin is a true Apothecary who grows, distils her own plants. She instinctively knows when to harvest them and when you are nurturing your products from seed to harvesting and making your own skincare from absolute scratch the results are truly amazing, they really speak for themselves.

Wildcrafted, organic, made in small batches to ensure the finest quality that I honestly believe the quality shines through in every single product I have tried from this brand. It smells incredible a beautiful mix of flower and plant & herbs and really uplifting. It just smells so fresh and beautiful.

Secondly you see the lovely texture of the cream you just know it is going to be nourishing but it feels so light and it goes a long way on your skin. It is lovely and silken, hydrating and nourishing it sinks into the skin straight away.

I get no residue sitting on my skin after this. I just get skin that looks hydrated, radiant and nourished. It is designed for mature skin and my skin simply loves it. I think until you have tried a product like this you are really missing out compared to mass produced and full of chemicals skincare, the difference is immense.

This has to be one of the most beautiful face creams I have tried for all of those reasons above. For me it is the perfect hydrating face cream that is a treat and an absolute pleasure to use and that fragrance ….

I look forward to trying more of this brand as everything I have tried so far has been so truly divine on my skin and the botanical s smell so incredible it is a brand I just want lots more of, it is beautiful I cannot imagine anyone trying this and not loving it!

A.S Apothecary Wild Beauty Balm Concentrate #30 – Well Hello Beautiful!

Hello Beauties, 

I hope you are all making the most of this beautiful sunshine while it lasts because it never does so get your vitamin D while you can eh! 

How have I not heard of or tried this brand before? O-M-G this Wild Beauty Balm Concentrate #30 is simply divine. The fragrance is the scent of a spring meadow with a little woodiness in to ground it, the smell just delights your senses and sends you instantly into a good mood. (I seriously cannot stop smelling this). It just gets me right in the heart!

So at A.S Apothecary they grow and pick most of the plants they use in their products themselves and these come from Sussex, Scotland and Cyprus. Amanda Saurin the founder is a traditional Apothecary, not something taught in classrooms but a rare talent handed down from hand to hand over centuries. She plants, picks grows and distills all her own oils & tinctures and a whole host more. Her knowledge of herbs, plants and flowers will be second to none. 

It is rare to come across a company that does not buy all their oils and potions in. All made in house you can be sure that you are getting the best ingredients into your product and I think that is what I am picking up on so strongly in this balm. It resonates with me, I didn’t know I needed it until I found it sort of thing.

The Wild Beauty Balm is made up of a concentrate of 10 active botanical oils and 5 essential oils to nourish and promote skin health.  Great for mature skin, it can be used  on any area of the body really to heal sore skin too. A small pea size amount is enough to do your whole face & neck. On contact the balm melts beautifully onto your skin releasing that intoxicating fragrance from within, it really is stunning! (as well as being fabulous on your skin).

If you love a comforting skin nourishing balm then you gotta try this! If you love aromatherapy benefits you have to smell this, it is a pot of wildflower fields held in a beautiful golden balm!

Have you heard of  this brand or tried the Wild Beauty Balm?
