Hello Beauties,

Yep .. still freezing! But the sun is shining for a change, happy days!

Botanyblends are a small company based on the beautiful Devon coast.
The owner Katie has a background in sensory integration which deals with how the brain processes sensations like touch and smell that sparked her interest in learning aromatherapy, put these 3 things together and what she has developed a unique talent to create some very special, high potency, organic, raw, luxury & green oils full of active ingredients to really treat the senses and most importantly the skin.

I honestly believe when you only make 3 products (so far) as a brand you have nowhere to hide, they have to be perfection and I believe that they are!

The oil I have and am reviewing is the ‘MERU’ oil, skin balancing and packed full of essential fatty acids and omegas to nourish and strengthen the skin.

‘Mount Meru is said to be gold in colour and so strong it supports the heavens. These golden drops of sunshine restore harmony, vitality and purify the skin, giving it strength and balance.’

I warm about 6 drops of the oil into my hands inhale the fragrance for a moment or 2 and press onto my face taking it down over my neck and chest. First thing I notice is how lovely and light this oil is and how well it glides over my face, plus it sinks in with in 5 minutes leaving my skin so silky soft it is unreal!

With essential oils of Neroli and Lotus flowers to revitalise, refresh, and tone the skin. Peruvian Jojoba, Sacha Inchi & Safflower it is packed full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

Because it is so lovely and light you can use it morning and evening, it really does put the glow back into your skin and leaving it feeling so supple and velvety soft, I have loved this from when I first set eyes on it, beautiful in every way!

So that is it for now, have you had the pleasure of trying any of the BOTANYBLEND oils?

MERU – Organic balancing, Skin plumping, nourishing and rich in those fatty omegas older skin needs so much of.

VEGA – Illuminating & Rejuvinating oil which is a nighttime oil for Supple Lucent, glowing skin (sounds so good).

ACESO – Organic, healing face oil for problematic skin or skin that is dealing with a lot of polution, rich in free radical fighting antioxidants. This oil is 100% natural and fragrance free for the most sensitive skins.

All of BOTANYBLEND’s oils are soil association approved, this year they will be 100% organic soil association approved, they are sustainable, eco friendly & fair trade.

I think the oils and the company are utterly fabulous in the quality of the oils and the blends. They make the oils in small batches to keep them as fresh as possible and the quality just glows out of the bottle.

Mizon K- Beauty Placenta Ampoule Cream


Hello fellow beauty addicts,

I am a bit late to the Korean skincare party though I know so many UK women are truly loving it. What really interests me from what I have read is that a lot of it is cruelty free and vegetarian.


Mizon was founded in 2000 by a team of cosmetic beauty specialists and let’s be hones, for it to still be going and have reached the UK shores it has to be of the best quality and a a really good face cream.

So what have I learned and noticed about this cream … well … it has a lovely thick consistency that really smoothes out onto the skin and is readily and quickly absorbed and I have noticed it gives a lovely matte finish, most important if you are wanting to put your make up on quickly in the morning.

The ‘placenta’ mentioned in the name comes from the part of the plant that feeds the seeds of the plant and the flower. It is rich in amino acids, peptides, trace elements and minerals. For this reason it is known to be highly nutritious for your skin.


So what will this do for your skin then? It contains Hyaluronic Acid and Trehalose which helps hold moisture in your skin. Also sagebrush, yarrow and rose extracts which all soothe, plump and nourish skin.

If your skin is feeling a bit grey and flat this will really nourish, hydrate & brighten the complexion for you and really give skin a lift and boost.

This cream is perfect for all skin types including sensitive, it is soothing on my skin as well as nourishing and it feels like it really smooths my skin out texture wise too.
