Skin Organics -Clean & Natural Beauty Box Competition!

 

Hello Beauties,

Today I have a competition for you! Yay!

It is for a Skin Organics Beauty Box. I have to say, I have been seriously impressed with the box I was sent and I have decided to subscribe, as I just love organics and clean products. Our skins readily accept these products and they work so much better on the skin (no harsh parabens).

Every month, you get sent 5 organic and clean products for just £21 plus £3.95 shipping .. For organic products that is a pretty amazing price, as it really can be much more expensive for niche, purer products. Funny how you have to pay more for products in their natural state and not filled with ingredients to really dry your skin out and irritate it!

Everything about this box feels smart, clean and beautiful. I am absolutely loving the 5 products I was sent. They are all award winning products, which I will list below, as you will receive the same box if you win.

Siskyn Camelia & Safflower Hot Cloth Cleansing Oil – a skin-brightening cleansing oil, that is gentle enough to take over your eyes to remove your eye makeup too. I don’t know about you, but sometimes  I think it is a pain having to get a lot of different cleansers out at bedtime!

Terre Verdi Acqua Di Rose Balancing Mist – Anyone who knows me, knows I am crazy about rose water and this one is lovely and pure as it just contains pure Damask Rosewater. I will be buying this in a full size as it has not left my side since it arrived (alcohol free).

Freyaluna Tea Tree and Peppermint Refreshing Foot Scrub – when I opened the box I could smell the beautiful peppermint coming from this … it is a brown sugar scrub and with it being so hot at the minute, it is a real treat to refresh hot tired feet. The good thing about a sugar scrub is it goes all creamy on the feet as the sugar dissolves leaving so silky smooth.

Kathy Sue Ann’s Anti-Ageing Eye Balm – Now this is a bit different to what I am used to, but I think it is a very good product. Particularly where I live, on the coast, it can get very windy and you can get watery eyes that sting and get very irritated. In an emergency, great on lips or other patches of irritated skin too.

Last up is Maggie Ann’s Nail Polish in Grace – A beautiful bright pink for summer! Free from 6, this nail polish is Peta approved gel polish and its formula is streak free and super glossy.

So how do you enter to win this box? Just like the skin Organics facebook page HERE & Subscribe to their website HERE (wait for the pop up to appear) and like my Facebook page too HERE and leave a comment on the competition on my facebook page to say you have entered all the conditions and give the competition a share.

Winner will be drawn at random in on Friday evening (4th of August), good luck everyone ❤ . You can also get 10% off one of The Skin Organics with code firstbox10.

Bye for now

February’s Fabulous LoveLula Beauty Box!

Hi everyone,

I have somewhat lost my blogging  mojo at the moment … but this month’s Lovelula beauty box is just way too good not to give a shout out too!

As always I love this box because its origins are in pure and organic beauty which is a real passion for me. I find it such good value for money. I always feel my £12.95 is always very well spent.

So let’s get started with the first product .. it’s a 400ml Lovea Shower gel, its bio active, has no parabens, no dye, no artificial fragrances. It is enriched with Soothing Aloe Vera to cleanse the skin and exotic Monio Oil to gently fragrance the skin.

It’s mahoosive lol! It smells fab and with the active yoghurt powder to gently help keep skin healthy and lightly exfoliated this product should have a long life in my bathroom :-). It retails on the LoveLula site for £6.49, so its good to see that not all organic has to be very expensive!

Next up is Fair Squared Hand Cream, I can never have enough hand creams and I love me Fair Squared lip balms they are so soft and hydrating. I am positive i will love the hand cream too! Again it’s a fabulous price at £4.50 for 100 ml.

Rich in honey, almond oil and olive oil it’s mega hydrating and just what my hands need in the evening to give them an extra boost of pure hydrating to plumb and moisturise hands and elbows. It soaks in very quickly and leaves no oily residue.

Skin Blossom Reviving  Eye cream is another beautiful, its a lovely light gel consistency. Soaks well into the eye area and it has  green tea and eye bright to revive and restore the skin around they eyes. I think this will be the perfect eye product for me in spring/summer as it’s not only very cooling and hydrating, its light enough to dab over my eye area for a mid day refreshment too!

It’s no secret that I love a well made bar of soap that is hydrating as well as nourishing the skin and Madara Cranberry and Juniper soap with jojoba to nourish smells simply divine! Rich and creamy you can just smell the creaminess coming off this soap. Made in Sweden  with eco cert ingredients. I know  this product  will be fantastic as its ingredients are very pure, gentle and non drying

Last but by no means least is Ren Instant Beauty Shot .. if only my postie had come earlier this morning! This has me fascinated and I do not want to waste any so it may need its own blog post.

At 45 this product is just spot on for me as it addresses the ageing issues I am now facing. It’s a gel serum that instantly lifts, firms and plumps the skin up with long-lasting effects .. oooo yes please!!! Can I get it in the bucket load? I had a read about for this, its so right up my street …. I shall be trying it out first thing tomorrow, as extremely promising and I would like to use it properly before raving or not about it.

Once more this power packed beauty box has made me very happy, I can see myself happily using every product and I can once again see the value in the box.

There are lessons here that not every organic product has to be very expensive and that natural products harnessed can help do powerful anti ageing things for more mature skins too ..

It comes with a 20% off the brands in the box too which gives you a month to stock up on any products you love.

That’s it from me folks

take care
