“ Brand: Good Works / Type: Body Oil / What it does: destresses, „
A complete beauty junkie, I am constantly trying out new products for the body and face. This brand caught my eye in a magazine interview with its founder, Kathy Phillips, also founder of the huge ' This Works' range. Good Works has been created as a 'green' aromatherapy range available to the mass-market, promising all natural ingredients that are non GM, synthetic fragrance and colour free, and ethically sourced. The range is free of sulphates, parabens and is not tested on animals.
This ticked all the boxes for me straight away, and I was curious to see how the brand compares to similar products from luxury brands I have used.
I chose to try the 'Good Vibrations' Body Oil (200ml) as I have had wide experience of body and massage oils in the past.
The blend of essential oils immediately signalled the success of beneficial oil - with hydrating, plumping palmarosa combined with balancing geranium oil, which also combats the dreaded cellulite! Exotic ylang ylang is a personal favourite, reviving the senses.
The environmentally-friendly packaging is not as glamorous as other aromatherapy brands, however this gave me faith that the company is focussed on creating a high quality product rather than unnecessary.
On application, the smell was absolutely divine, reminding me of glorious spa treatments and left me feeling completely at one with myself. Little was used to leave my parched 'winter- skin' feeling nourished and glowing, without the greasy residue feared from using oils. It sank in quickly, leaving little time before needing to dress. The beautiful scent lingered for hours afterwards, without being over-bearing.
In conclusion, Good Works Good Vibrations Body Oil left me excited for the next day's application and investing in other products of the range. It is amongst my favourite body products, next to top brands Elemis and Espa. At £12.00 for 200ml, I expect this product to by flying out of stores - a premium quality product without an extreme price tag, leaving you feeling sound in the knowledge that your skin and soul are truly pampered.
An indulgent oil to leave you relaxed and moisturised /
