BOTANYBLEND Organic MERU Face Oil

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.

That’s it for now folks, take care

DECIEM’s 5 Piece Heroes Collection, First Ever TSV on QVC!

Hello fellow beauty addicts,

Well it has finally happened!! Deciem are doing their first ever TSV on QVC on the 23rd of January (pre-sale at 10am) .. Yikes! So they are calling this a beauty box and it show cases some of their best products across the vast umbrella of products that they now do.

So whats in the box you say!

Well the first product is the AHA30% & BHA2% Peeling solution 30ml. Oh this is the most fabulous beetroot red shade, definitely very unique and it is a really good product for exfoliating the skin and it is also really good for clearing out and dissolving the dirt in pores too. I have found this mask leaves my skin incredibly smooth, brightened and conditioned. It is different to anything else I have used due to the colour but that is a part of the fun of the mask, skincare should be fun at times.. Grab a glass of vino and go for it .. your skin will thank you in the morning!(even if your head is sore).

Next up is NIOD MMHC2 – Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex 2, 30ml, this is the updated version of MMHC and it has 15 different Hyaluronic compounds, precursors all in a highly charged peptide delivery system.
This product hydrates the skin on a multi dimensional level – in other words it doesn’t just hydrate the top layer of skin it goes down & hydrates the skin on many different levels and layers plumping it up and keeping it hydrated all day. I have been using this since it came out.
I was caught in the stampede and I didn’t care I wanted some!
I am waiting on the CIAS 2 as well…
Particularly good if you are stuck on the North West Coast of Ireland and it is baltic and the heating is on full blast, a product as good as this is a must!

The Chemistry Brand Hand Chemistry – Hand Cream this is skincare usually reserved for your face in a hand cream. It is completely anti-ageing and the results are fantastic! If your hands are dry and you can see them starting to age.. get this on and put some gloves on top at night and you will have hands that look 10 years younger by the morning, brighter, more youthful and silky soft .. Oh yes please!

Hylamide HA BLUR – Oh wow! I have just tried this product and I am amazed at how my face looks and feels, it looks younger, smoother and velvety smooth. I tried some on my hand too to really see if I could see what it does and I can! Results are immediate and my hand looks smoother and younger. No wonder this has won awards it is a really remarkable product .. why did I not pick up on this before? I have a new love for sure .I do know of others in my beauty group who have tried this and swear by it but I had never gotten round to trying it as well .. so many products Deciem now sells!
Ha Blur is a prismatic blurring surface finisher, you can use it under your makeup as a primer, mix it in with your foundation to give flawless finishes. and you can also take a little and tap it on gently to areas of concern that you want to Blur like your number 11’s, corners of mouth and really you just dab a very small amount where you need it. You can also just wear it on bare skin to give you a ‘softer focus’ complexion.
It also has Hyaluronic Acid in to keep skin glowing, the results are truly amazing.

Last up but by no means least is Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Acid from the Fountain range , 240ml – I LOVE these vitamin drink suppliments and I have 3 on the go right now including this one (God bless Black Friday lol) Again this is an award winning product it tastes lightly of ginger and it is packed full of Hyaluronic acid. 2 teaspoons a day in juice or water ect .. i just take mine off the spoon and have a glass of water after. I really do feel my skin is in better condition all over for taking this.
What I love about this is it not only benefits your skin but your whole well being, joints, bones, skin the lot so I love that is is multi purpose and vegan.

All of Deciem’s products are cruelty free & lots of them are vegan,some are organic, they are carving their own path in the beauty world and are not afraid if they don’t like something not to do it.
Their aim is to bring the consumer the best and most innovative products that they can, I like clean beauty but I also like some good science behind a product too and Deciem offers me this by the bag full.

This is a fabulous TSV the value combined of products is £110 and on the 27th of January it will be just £39.96 which is exceptional value!
I will put the link here when it goes live and that’s it for now ..Deciem 5 Piece Hero’s Collection!

Will you be treating yourself to this cracking TSV?

Bye for now
