Kiss The Moon LOVE Night Cream For Hands

 

Hey Beauties,

Been a while since my last post .. it would seem anaemia gave me a bit of a sabbatical but onwards and upwards eh!

Kiss the Moon I have wanted to try for quite some time, as their oils are all natural and aimed at getting you a really good night’s sleep. As someone with a full list of sleep issues, I thought I would try some samples a while back and fell completely in love with their LOVE Night Cream for hands … oh and they are British (I love to support Uk brands)!

Their Nighttime Hand Cream is a new product by them and full of Shea Butter, Rosehip Oil, Rosewater, Coconut Oil and Olive Oil so it really packs a punch on dry skin. With no parabens or sulphates the cream just sinks quickly and completely into your skin

The Love Hand Cream and Oils are aimed at anti-ageing as well as sleep (thats moi) and with a blend of Rose, renowned for calming skin and the mind, Frankincense, a natural mood lifter and Ylang Ylang to promote peace and relax, it smells beautiful.

The hand cream smells divine, not overpowering as I find some and too strong a whiff of essential oils can actually wake you up, by stimulating the mind instead of relaxing it. So this is a beautiful mellow blend and I adore the fragrance from my very first use.

The second thing I noticed about this hand cream was that unlike some (ok a lot) I found it to be very nourishing on my hands. I often get contact dermatitis and eczema on my hands and this soothed and nourished them overnight and that is what sold me on this cream , so much so that I had to invest.

It goes on like a rich mousse and quickly sinks into the skin .. no oily hands for hours after. It goes in and gets to work on nourishing and healing and it definitely helps me and my thirsty skin.

The aroma of delicate Rose, Frankincense & Ylang Ylang is so soft and mellow, it is really beautiful. My hands feel and look more nourished and I am just completely sold on this hand night treatment and the fragrance. I got a 15% off email where they asked for some feedback, so I bought the hand cream with that and sent them a message, telling them how much I loved it and what a lovely company and very humble people to talk to.

They were so pleased and sent me out a few more samples of their oils to try, plus the sugar scrub, which is made with brown sugar, so it smells deep and decadent and leaves skin super smooth.

I think that the LOVE Face Oil will be my next investment for sure, as that scent just totally wins my senses over. You can check them out here: Kiss the Moon

That’s it for now peeps ..

back soon I hope

Odylique Beautifully Organic and Vegan Eco Luxe Products!

Hi everyone,

For those of you who have not yet heard of or tried Odylique, it is a very pure, organic and vegan brand that is available through The  Essential Care Company, developed to reach out to all women with the most sensitive of skins.

odylique-gift-set

It is Artisan , Eco Luxe handmade products made by a mother and daughter team. Born out of necessity Margaret is trained in Aromatherapy and herbal medicine, she has a passion for natural medicine  and her daughter Abi works alongside her.

With ‘Odyl’ meaning the power, or force of nature! Something these 2 ladies are on their own, with all their knowledge and incredible products!

Shocked by the harsh chemicals in many of today’s products, Margaret formulated products herself using pure plant oils plus and biodynamic herbs grown in her own garden (what a woman)and her products really took off from there!

So the first item i have from Odylique is the Superfruit Serum, with a synergy of 5 essential fatty acids, antioxidant vitamins and phytosterols, this serum is to be used on top of your moisturiser, my skin just loves this serum, it locks in your moisturiser and the beautiful amber serum is a total pick me up for tired, dry skin.

It automatically transforms your skin into a ‘lit from within’ look! Pure radiance and sunshine in a bottle, this serum is truly magical and has to be tried to be believed … also makes a fab make up base too, cannot tell you enough how my mature skin just loves this good stuff! A perfect lift on a dark winters day .

Last week i treated myself to an Odylique Lavender soap, handmade and pure, again another product that i now love, its more of a cleansing bar because of the high quality oils in this bar and it sented me and my whole bathroom last night, its stunning! Great for shaving with too and good as well for men with sensitive skins as well.

Made for the most sensitive of skins these bars are made with organic extra virgin olive oil, plus nourishing butters and fresh organic lavender (this had me sold), , soothing and gentle, i get contact dermatitis on my hands and weeping eczema too, something i am always conscious of and a tad paranoid about so the oils in this soap should  really help.

Lavender has gentle antiseptic properties, is balancing, calming on the skin , calming, promotes skin renewal and promotes well being  it has anti inflammatory properties too, the list of properties Lavender has is endless,with the scent known to relax the mind and help with getting a good nights sleep!

We are talking high grade lavender here not the stuff you think your granny used to smell of!  Lol! Its rich, spicy, aromatic and beautiful! Lol!

I think for it to be effective it needs to be organic and pure and this is how i love it, this beautiful soap scented my whole bathroom last night and i will be having a long love affair with Odylique soaps as well as other products i have yet to discover from this fabulous brand!

Lastly is a little sample i got with my order and that is the Toning Fruit Body Butter,  it has a slight medicinal astringent scent but i like that as i know its the organic products! With organic coconut, olive and raw shea, sea buckthorn  it is very skin softening, protective and hydrating while ylang ylang, lemon and bergamot are used to tone the skin, again this is very skin smoothing and toning…good for mummy tum’s and ‘Ye olde bingo wings’ (sorry lol)

While it might not be one of the products i would maybe purchase personally,  it is still a good fine quality product!

I just cannot wait to try more products from the brand as i think what Margaret and her daughter are doing is pretty dam amazing and long may they continue ..

Have you Tried Odylique yet? If so what did you think about it?

In this day and age where everything is rushed out, full of additives and preservatives Odylique is a completely refreshing light in the dark for me!
