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

So this travel set of 4 masks (always use masks on cleansed skin for best results) contains:

Exfoliating Mask infused with Red Seaweed and Kaolin clay. It sloughs off old skin-cells, dirt and oil, freshens and brightens your complexion and is great for both oily, congested skin and dry skin alike. This has left my skin baby smooth, matte and ready for my morning skincare routine.

Gel Mask Enriched with Marine Trace Elements and Uplifting Essential Oils. This mask energises tired, older skin-types (yes please). It gives a great radiance boost to your face before a night out, as it gives firmer, glowing skin. It definitely gives skin and mind a boost from the off ..it is fantastic!

Mineral Mask Full of Marine Trace Elements & Minerals. This mask can be used in several ways: of course as a face mask, but also as a stand alone eye mask, a booster mask and even a cleanser, so a very handy one to have on the go! Perfect for congested, lifeless skin, it detoxifies, balances and brightens your skin, leaving you with a lovely, healthy glow.

Last but by no means least, is the Cream Mask, which is a lovely rich, nourishing mask to feed the skin. It has jojoba, shea butter & marine minerals and it takes down redness and restores calm, to sensitive or damaged skin. It is a powerful, vitamin infused, hug of a face mask. It will soothe broken capillaries, redness and re-plump tired skin. It is like a big, fluffy, comfy blanket for the skin .. I love this, it’s so soothing and it smells so comforting too.

You can custom blend and mix these masks to your own needs. They are incredibly balanced and put the right nourishment back into your skin as they go.

What I will also say, is that I got 2 masks out of each pot. This makes these beautiful, luxury, high end masks £2.50 a go. This in my book, for what they are, makes them a very affordable treat for someone who loves skincare, like myself.
