Bodhi & Birch Have A Fabulous New Website & New Product Launches Coming Soon!

Hello fellow beauty lovers, 

Bodhi & Birch have just launched  their new website, not only that they have an Organic Super-food range launching soon (oh yes) I can’t wait! Not only that but Elijah has been working on reformulating on that which was already a stunning product – The Beautiful Organic Desert Rose Face Oil. I didn’t think he could make it much better but some how he has tweaked it and it is stunning!

One of the oils he took out of this oil was wheatgerm oil which can cause people with wheat allergies some problems. So this has made the oil more open to people who could not use it before. 

One of the oils he added was an organic prickly pear oil which was a new one on me , looking at the ingredient list it is very high up on the list and I know Elijah the founder really has not scrimped in any way in the making of this oil. He only put the finest ingredients together and put in what really does need to be there. I always pick up a beautiful balance from Elijah, someone who has life in balance, he gives off that lovely nurturing feeling and he has certainly nurtured this oil and brought it to life beautifully.

I did a little read up on the prickly pear oil. It is fantastic on older skins, it plumps, helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and it is packed full of essential fatty acids, Vitamin E & Vitamin K a big buzzword in the beauty industry right now. It smells soothing and wonderfully fragrant with Damask Rose and just a hint of the sharp pear coming in underneath. 

It is packed full of antioxidants so a great addition to the Desert Rose Oil which is already full of beautiful organic oils like Rosehip, Argan, Star Flower & Evening Primrose this oil is incredibly lightweight. It sinks beautifully right into your skin as the oils are so pure, the fragrance of the Damask Rose coming through and a hint of pear, not sweet pear but a hint of wonderful crisp pear.

Everything in this bottle is designed to soothe the mind and spoil your skin, give it a beautiful nourishing treat full of beautiful ingredients it is so balanced and a little bottle of joy that you really treasure. It is silken, super lightweight and it sinks completely into the skin as it is very pure and there is no residue on your face just velvety soft nourished skin. 

Bodhi & Birch have just launched their new website this weekend and with every purchase you can get a free luxe sample of the Desert Rose Oil. So go take a look here, I can recommend so many things that I love like the Pep Noir, Siam Ginger, Mint The, Rosemary Chi shower gels (yes I am a shower gel lover and hoarder!) Not forgetting the unforgettable Mint The Temple Balm guaranteed to kill all lurgy from 10ft! Great for stress, colds, flu you name it this balm helps lots!
I keep it beside my bed, it seems to kill off colds for me so when anyone is near me with the cold out comes the balm like holy water lol (works for me). 

Anyway you can check out the website for yourself and perhaps bag yourself something nice and a free sample of the Desert Rose Oil!

New website is here –   Bodhi & Birch

Bye for now

Korres Basil and Lemon Shower Gel

Hello everyone,

When i purchased my Korres shower gel i knew very little about the brand other than this particular Basil and Lemon Shower Gel was award winning formulation !


Korres is a Greek Eco Brand who develop products that are not only skin friendly but their core principle is to protect the environment and support the communities as well.

Nothing is wasted and what is left over goes into renewable energy, not many companies can boast to be this environmentally friendly from start to finish .. pretty amazing really!

So what caught my interest firstly about this shower gel was no parabens, mineral oil free and enriched active plant extracts like wheat proteins to hydrate, soften the skin, Aloe Vera to soothe and PH neutral!

This shower gel leaves your skin as hydrated as a leave on product (moisturiser) my skin can get very dry so it ticked so many boxes for me i just had to get some.. and it has not disappointed!

It smells of lovely sweet lemons mixed with the basil, such a beautiful, fresh, uplifting aroma to shower in. The lather is lovely soft bubbles and there is a real creaminess to them, it really is a stunning shower gel that left my skin feeling very soft and hydrated it is also a fab price! Korres Basil and Lemon Shower Gel @ £7.20 from Bath&Unwind, i have tried the same scent in a much more expensive brand and this one knocks its socks off!


So for a beautiful but luxurious, heaven scented, eco, vegan, vegeterian friendly shower check out Korres, i will be delving into their Rose range very soon, so affordable too ..

Have you tried any Korres products? if so would you recommend any products to me to try please?

Thats it for now 🙂
