This is a lovely cuticle oil that is full of great of cold pressed organically grown plant oils. I found that when I use this my nails are stringer and more flexible. They tend not to get brittle and break nor do they split.
As I like to wear nail polish and gelish I try to look afte my nails and 'feed' them well. I try to not waer varnish at least one week in four and during that week apply even more oils to my nails than I do usually.
This is not a quick fix, it needs to be applied over time and the nails will gradually get stronger, I began to notice my nails had improved after a couple of weeks.
This cuticle oil also has essential oils so it smells great and works on your well being as well as your nails .
Prior to using this my nails were weak and splitting ans in awful condition as we had been doing a lot of cleaning and DIY and this oil has really made them improve and they are now growing and I am finding that they are not splitting as often. Some are now a decent length again.
This oil is especially good for anyone who works getting their hands in water or having to wash their hands a lot. I carried my bottle in my handbag and applied it whenever I had a moment. The oil I then rubbed inot my fingers and hands so my hands benefited too.
When you see the lovely oils in this you can see why it smells so great :Simmondsia chinensis oil, Prunus armeniaca oil, Citrus aurantium oil and Boswellia sp Oil - all organically produced and grown (Jojoba Oil, Apricot Kernal Oil, Neroli and Frankincense
The combination of sweet neroli with exotic frankinsence is always a winner for me.
This is a nice small brush that is used to style short hair styles. It can be used to lift and give body to thin fine hair used with a mouse or as I use it o straighten my curly hair and smooth it as I dry it. I sometimes add a bit of serum to smooth the frizz but mostly this orks just as is.
The drum of this is not silver like my other brushes but made of is made with TOURMALINE. This is supposed to hold the heat from the hair dryer and so speed up drying and hold the style better.
I am not convinced it is any better than my silver drummed styling brushes personally.
This costs between £10 and £12 and my other silver drummed ones cost a lot less . I am not sure I would spend the extra money on the TOURMALINE again.
I personally feel I was a bit conned by the hairdresser s to how good this brush was and feel you are paying for the brand rather than anything different.
A neat little gift wrapped habdbag containing two of Weleda products.
1 x Wild Rose Creamy Body Wash 200ml
1 x Wild Rose Body Lotion 200ml
Both good sized versions of these products and both lovely natural rose scented products.
I love both these so was quite thrilled to get given this as a gift.
The rose scented bath or body wash is creamy and gentle and smells lovely. It leaves my skin feeling clean and not at all tight or irritated. the snt doesn't linger on my dried skin but does smell good in the bath.
the lotion smells the same gently naturally rose like and not sweet and grandma rose like. it is very quickly absorbed into my skin and is a lovely light lotion that feels cool and refreshing and makes my skin feel lovely and soft and smooth and this does linger in my skin.
This is a lovely rose scented gift set for any lover of natural products that smell natural and feminine too.
This is a gift packaged version of Weleda's rose day cream. this is a fabulous rich and all natural, organic and vegan friendly face cream for day time use.
Personally I usually buy the cream without the cracker but as a gift this makes a quite dull packed item look much more gift like so I bought one for a friend and checked it out prior to giving it to her. I use the cream myself so I was interested to see this in a cracker.
The cream is lovely, gently rose scented , light and quickly absorbed into my skin.
I love the way this feels cool and smells so lovely on my face . It leaves my skin feeling well moisturised, fresh and soft.
I have never had any reaction from using this cream and my friend fell in love with it too and is now a regular customer as well.
Weleda make a beautiful range of gentle . natural baby products which are suitable for the most sensitive skins. This provides a great and effective and also nourishing and healing protective barrier cream.
Baby;s skin is ultra sensitive and calendula is a great sensitive ingredient and helps to heal and sooth any rash.
I bought this for my step daughter to use on my grandson as I really rate Weleda highly. She was impressed and has since bought the larger tube as grandson has sensitive skin but with careful care and constant nappy changes he has managed to remain rash free thanks to this cream
The cream is not just a barrier as it is all natural the ingredients benefits are absorbed into baby's skin to help prevent any rashes.
This has the benefits of organic and biodynamic calendula and organic chamomile and these are the active caring ingredienst that help both sooth and heal any redness to stop rashes before they happen in our case.
Soothe irritation and comfort the skin
I had two of these fitted on my micra sport in feb 2012 andthey have served me well and they passed the MOT in September 2014 with no prblem.
I drive regulalry most days of the week and go down very narrow lanes which require me to make quick decisions if something is coming the other way.
I drive at a consistent speed of 70+ on Motorwyas and the car has good grip in all conditions. I find I can stop quickly when needed .
In the last couple of winters I have had to drive on ungritted icy roads and driving with dur care I have not slipped at all nor had any times when I hav e felt out of control. i have managed to get up hills when otyhers have failed.
I am not a technical driver but from a lady driver 's perspective these have served me well and i would be happy to buy them again.
Toyo is one of the leading tyre manufacturers worldwide and is represented in more than 100 countries and regions.
the comoany was established in 1945 in Osaka, Japan. they specialise in manufacture and marketing of high-value, High Performance tyres.
These tyres are recommended for orts cars, powerful saloons and coupes
They not only have good grip and handling bit are also low noise and give better driving comfort.
I have been impressed woth how they have worn and hope they last me even longer.
I have been lucky enough to be able to try a number of Caudalie products by using samples bought through one of the many beauty sites I am a memeber of.
This is a lovely gentle but effective facial exfoliator. It comes in a neat white upside down tube with a lovely minimilist vine design in green like a number of their other products in the range.
The product has tiny exfoliating microparticles which mean that you get a great scrub and deep clean. After using this my skin feels lovely and soft but also looks as though it has been given a new lease of life.
This has a lovely refreshing aroma which comes from the menthol and the grape pulp wmoisturizes and soothes the skin following the exfoliation action.
The texture os soft and creamy but smells lovely and fresh and grapefruity fruity which I always find a lovely uplifting and a great wake me up aroma.
All you have to do is apply a very small amount to a wet face a couple of times a week and gently massge then rinse with warm water. After that tone to close the pores then apply your usual moisturiser and then make up if you want to.
The founder of Caudalie states that:"I believe in a greener planet and more committed cosmetics. I formulate my products for all women who, like me, don't want to choose between effectiveness and naturalness, between glamour and ecology."
This is far from being a cheap option and for 60 ml you will pay a whopping £18. I liked my sample but cannot see me paying the full price for this.
Personally I actually prefer Lush's Angels on bare Skin which is a gentke exfoliant using ground alsmonds and is considerably cheaper and just as natural. So well done for the natural product and not testing on animals but the price is a bit high for Mrs Average like me.
I had some Amazon vouchers 'burning a hole in my pocket', as they say. I looked through and found this rather luxurious and natural make up remover and I have read a lot about Dr Hauschka on here before so was keen to try something from the brand.
Thi is a lovely gentle cleansing milk that has a slightly spicy rose scent which is both refreshing and pleasant to use.
The idea is that you wet your face then apply a little of this cleansing milk and then gentley wip off any excess along with any make up. It is gentle enough for sensitive skins and also safe to use on your eyes as well which shows how gentle it is.
I found it thoroughly removed all traces of make up including mascara and left my face not only clean but also feeling soft and not dried out or itchy. I always tone after cleansing and sometimes also wash with a face wash but after using this I just used my Lush toner to tighten the pores then applied my night time moisturiser.
This is full of lovely ingredients such as Anthyllis, jojoba and almond oil which all work to maintain the skin’s natural protective function and stop the skin drying out.
This costs £24 for 145 ml of product the product comes in a cardboard box and inside that is a cylindrical push pump container. It looks classy and as though it is a quality product. I do like push pumps but I also like containers that allow me to see how much is left and ones that I can get ALL the contents out and waste none.
This does sound expensive but it is all natural, it works well and you don't need to use a lot so it works out quite good value really for such a lovely quality product.
I have been fortunate enough to visit Weleda and have over the last couple of years had a lot of samples from them to try and to review for them. This was not a sample but as I know the quality of Weleda products, when my latest grandson was born in December I bought a few Weleda products for my daughter to use on him.
they spend quite a lot of time with us and as a hand's on grandma I am happy to change nappies and have some sprare nappies and products here for when he comes over.
he was born 6 weeks early and so was very small and so we wanted the best for him. he does get a very red little bottom at times so we have to be vigilant with applying cream.
We used Sudasrem with other grandchildren but it is so sticky and gloopy that nappies would not then stick and I know the contents are not all natural as well.
This cream is healing and soothing and not just a barrier cream. the benefits are absorbed by baby's tender skin and the natural oils and butters protect the skin from the wet and poo that causes the rashes. My daughter is very good at changing his nappies frequently and with this cream she has kept his sore bottoms to a minimum.
This cream is pretty thick but doesn't have that sulpur smell that some nappy creams have. It has lanolin and zinc oxide to create a protective barrier and Organic almond oil and organic calendula and chamomile extracts which give the gentle healing and soothing to baby's skin.
This is a Certified Natural Baby Care product and is free of synthetic preservatives, fragrances, colourants. It also has absolutely no ingredients from mineral oils.
This costs £6.95 for 75 ml which is a bit more expensive that high street brands biut is comparable to the better quality and more natural alternatives and is well worth it as it is so much better than others.
You can use this from birth as it is so gentle and was fine on our premmy grandson who is ding well now and nearly three months old !
This is a nice gift for someone to introduce them to Weleda. This has two lovely Weleda products 1 x 200ml Citrus Creamy Body Wash and 1 x 200ml New Citrus Hydrating Body Lotion. Both products are a good enough size to give the person a really good idea of the quality of the product.
The Body wash is a lovely gentle creamy citrus scented body wash. it doesn't lather up a huge amount but cleans and leaves the skin feeling moisturized and clean and smells fresh.
The Body lotion is quite thin yet because it is full of natural oils it is quickly absorbed and leaves my skin feeling fabulous, smelling sweetly citrus and that feeling lasts the day through.
This gift set is not available at this time but may be back in the future but both products are available separately still so you could create your own gift pack.
Weleda only use 100% natural ingredients and every ingredients in the products is there because it is beneficial.They use organic and fairtrade ingredienst to ensure that their products are the hightest quality.
Caudalie Vinotherapie mask is a 2-in-1 formula of a mask and gentle exfoliator. Caudalie say "This fresh peeling mask renews the appearance of skin, tightens the appearance of pores and provides an immediate burst of radiance in just 10 minutes."
This is okay for all skin types and the little brush applicator measn that you apply it in the correct thickness and don't need to touch the product or your face with your fingers.
This comes in a pretty small tube of 40 ml and as it costs a whopping £20 from Amazon so for my money it would have to do an amazing job as you can get some pretty good face masks for an awful lot less.
This mask has an ingredients list a mile long but I can's say I recognize many of them as being very natural.
Caudalie say that this gives the best results if used twice a week and left on for ten minutes each time.
It is a creamy, semi-oily moisturizing mask with some exfoliating properties.
Apply all over your face avoiding the area around your eyes.I tried using it for the suggested ten minutes and also tried leaving it on overnight and that works well for me and i had no irritation using it that way.
It is quite strange when you apply it as it starts to kind of ball up with dead skin cells almost as soon as it dries. It doesn't exfoliate through anything gritty so it must be some of the ingredients that work a bit like a chemical peel.
It doesn't just have one Glycolic, Lactic or Salicylic ingredients but has a combination of many AHA ingredients in quite small concentrations.
Personally I prefer a gentle gritty exfoliant rather than chemical acids, some gentle ground almonds or similar is my choice.
This was okay but not a product i would get excited about. It is expensive and doesn't do much that other cheaper face masks with natural ingredients do more gently.
This body Lotion is a pretty natural based body lotion with many enriched with plant-derived ingredients. I find it gives my skin a really nice intense moisturising and it is also full of anti-oxidants and ingredients that helps fight signs of ageing.
This is a very moisturising lotion despite the fact it is quite thin. It smells lovely and even once it soaks into the skin I can still detect it on my skin.It dries quite quickly and leaves no damp sticky feeling nor does it feel greasy either.
The scent if light, refreshing and natural but not in your face sweet, more like a light leafy herby aroma.
I like the fact that Caudalie do not test on animals, their packaging is recyclable and made from recycled paper and plastic.
Caudalie base a lot of their products on ingredients from vineyards using grape seeds, grape vine stems and other parts which they have found to be beneficial to the skin.
The packaging is pretty , a white push pump or tube and there are vine leaves decorating the product in a very simple yet classy design.
This shower oil uses only essential oils that will benefit the user in some way. This one has oils that revive and waken the senses. The essential oils smell great but they are not just there because they smell nice, They are there for their aromatherapy benefits. This shower oil saves you the trouble of mixing the essential oils yourself
You can buy this from Birchbox where a 55ml bottle will set you back a whopping £39.00 so this is not an everyday product. From the Aromatherapy site the same 55ml will cost £40.
I had to sniff this before I used it in the bath and the scent was beautiful a fruity fresh yet sweet and uplifting aroma. In this you will experience refreshing and invigorating grapefruit, rosemary and juniper essential oils. I am not a fan of grapefruit to eat but the scent is lovely and it is an oil. Together they blend beautifully to make a lovely shower or bath oil.
I used mine in the bath as I didn’t want to lose any of my precious 3 ml of this oil. I applied this to my body then got into my bath so I got the full benefit of the aroma and the oils. The company do say that this is safe to apply to your body prior to bathing or showering. They say that the 55 ml will give you around 20 baths and a capful is enough to gain all the benefits from this oil.
I loved the bath being so nicely scented. The water felt nice but not oily in any way like you get from using the butter melts etc. My skin felt soft, clean and nicely moisturised but not greasy or slippery at all so I did use some body lotion after my bath as I do have very dry skin.
I did like this bath oil but at that price I think it is unlikely that I will be buying the full sized bottle however lovely it was.
Yes if you have lots of money or ask for it as a gift it is lovely and a natural product with no nasties at all from an ethical and English company. Sadly my finances do not stretch to using something quite so expensive on a regular basis.
This comes in a slim pretty pink bottle with a spray applicator. 50 ml cost about£25 from amazon which is a reasonable price for an EDT I feel. It is light refreshing and very floral. I find it perfect for a summer's day or when travelling to hot places as it is refreshing but not too ovepowering so those around will not be knocked out by your scent.
The main notes in this are green, white floral,musky, sweet, fresh, spicy, woody. the light fresh sweet floral ones are more evident to me and the deeper woody notes are barely distinguishable in my opinion.
In truth although this is pleasant and refreshing because it dies not last on my skin I would not buy it again as there are cheaper ones that do the same job such as Body Shop and Soap & glory if you want a nice refreshing light EDT or body spray to take travelling or to wear when hot.
This comes in a dark green glass bottle inside a cardboard outer pack. For 200ml you pay £12.95
Weleda use all natural oils and plant essences and every ingredients in a product has a job to do. This is advertised as " Invigorating Bath Milk". The stimulation comes from the rosemary scent which works like essential oils in aromatherapy.
Weleda's bath milks are different from many other bath products we are used to. You only need a capful or so and as you add this to your bath the water tends to go slightly cloudy. they are no bubbles or sparkles or flashes , it is just a milky scented bath.
The idea is that you lie back and breath in the aromas and just soak up the atmosphere. The water with the bath milk is not supposed to clean you it is supposed to be a " warming and enlivening bath milk( which ) stimulates circulation and the invigorating fragrance helps to start the day feeling fresh and alive."
Personally I found this a bit strong for my bath and certainly this is not one i would used in my evening bath, great for the morning for a brisk wake up.
I used this mainly as a foot soak in my foot bath as the scent works well to deodorise my feet and to warm them and meanwhile I can enjoy the aroma froma bit further away as in the bath I found it a bit powerful.
I find it great in winter as it warms my feet and stimulates the blood flow in my feet and lower legs. It has been great recently as we have been lifting and packing boxes and my legs and feet are getting a lot of bending and kneeling and the foot soak relieves my tired feet and meanwhile I can lie back on the sofa and revive my tired brain cells.
This is a strong scented bath milk so don't expect anything to bubble or change colour. The rosemary essential oils are known to stimulate the senses and rivive ired lethargic bodies.
