I received Moa’s The Green Balm and Bamboo Face Cloth in a goody bag when I attended the London Beauty Bloggers Meetup. I quite like the packaging as it reflects a natural and organic look. When I looked at the packaging I was impressed to see the shelf life of the product was mentioned. All the ingredients in this balm is completely natural, making it a 100% natural and organic beauty product. It’s quite difficult to find 100% natural and organic beauty products in U.K. as most of them are not totally natural. So I was very happy to find a 100% natural and organic beauty product like Moa, which is made in England.
Once I was satisfied with the ingredient list, I went ahead to use the product. The product box included a Bamboo face cloth to use with the balm. Bamboo fibre is also known for it’s naturally anti-bacterial properties so it’s good for acne prone skin, like mine. I have acne prone skin and breakout easily if I use products with chemicals, so this was perfect for me. The Green balm also has tea tree oil in it which is ideal for acne prone skin. The balm has quite a distinct smell, which I quite like. The instructions to use the product was on the packaging, which stated to take some balm and melt it between your palm and then smother over your face. After you have massaged the balm on your face, dip the cloth in hot water and wring out excess water and steam your face for few seconds. Once you have steamed your face, dip the cloth in cold water and press the soft side of the cloth on the face. The steam helps open up pores of the face and the cold water compress helps to close the pores while toning your face. My skin felt fresh and moisturised. If you have an oily skin, you won’t need to apply additional moisturiser after this ritual.
I felt absolutely amazing after this cleansing routine, it almost felt like a luxury mini facial before bed time. I would recommend all you ladies to try it out, it’s worth it.
You can buy The Daily Cleansing Ritual from their website. If you don’t want to buy the Daily Cleansing Ritual, you can also buy their mini balm first to test it out.
My verdict: Out of 5 I will give the product 4 stars and would highly recommend it. It’s priced at £14.99(incl. VAT) which is a bit expensive but it does come with a bamboo fibre cloth, which is worth the money in my opinion. The product is free from Parabens, perfume, alcohol and all chemicals. It’s a vegetarian product.
Do try it ladies and let me know your feedback.
OhSoBo is a natural skin care company creating products with finest natural ingredients. Their products are vegan friendly, free from SLS and Parabens. None of their products are tested on animals. Last week I received a sample box from them to try out the skin nourishing oil, refreshing foot oil, English Rose body scrub, their forthcoming shower smoothie scrub and whipped cream body wash.
I have just finished using all of their products, so sharing my thoughts with you lot.
Skin Nourishing oil: It’s a Bergamot and mandarin based oil with evening primrose. This oil has been designed to be used as a natural alternative to body lotion and can be used every day. The oil nourishes your body leaving a hint of sweet mandarin. If you are looking for natural alternative to body lotions then you can try this oil. I would particularity suggest this if you have a dry skin.
Refreshing foot oil: The foot oil is a combination of peppermint and eucalyptus oil which helps soothe tired and achy feet. The oil also helps to nourish and moisturise the skin. I use this at night after coming back home from work and it soothes my tired feet. You could also use this as a part of your DIY pedicure for added relaxation. I love this oil and will surely continue using this. I feel my feet are the driest part of my body and the nourishing effect of the oil helps to keep my feet moisturised the whole day. I would recommend buying this product.
English Rose body scrub : This scrub is a rich luxury scrub infused with rose scent, natural sea salt and essential oils. When I tried this is the shower, it felt quite oily so I was very surprised as I have never used a scrub infused with oil. Since I have very oily skin, I was a bit concerned but the scrub exfoliates the skin and was quite nourishing. The best part was that I didn’t have to apply body lotion after my shower. The whole day my skin felt moisturised so I was quite happy with this product. I would suggest indulging in this natural scrub to pamper your skin.
Shower smoothie scrub: It’s a natural body wash with hemp seed oil and avocado oil. I quite like this product as it has a natural fragrance and minute particles which gently exfoliates the skin. It actually feels like you’re using a fruit smoothie. This is a very innovative and great product. This is part of OhSoBo’s forthcoming scrub line which will be launched soon. I love this product. This is now part of my beauty wish list.
Whipped cream body wash: The body wash is a thick cream based wash infused with olive oil and plum kernel extract. The cream base helps moisturise the skin and the kernel extract helps in mild exfoliation. I absolutely love this product and this is one of the best body products I have ever used. The wash also leaves behind a nice fragrance. I am a fan of this now and eagerly waiting for OhSoBo to launch this with their forthcoming scrub line.
I would suggest giving OhSoBo, a try if you are looking for natural products for your skin. You can check out their website for a full range of products. Do let me know ladies if you like it x
Are you looking for natural and organic face mask? If so, I would suggest heading out to your nearest Lush store.
Last week I was invited to attend the “make your own face mask” workshop at Lush Covent garden store as part of the London Beauty Bloggers meet up organised by Rebecca Goodyear from biteablebeauty. The lush Covent Garden store has a beauty room in the basement where few other beauty bloggers and I received a warm welcome with drinks and nibbles by the lovely Lush team. While we were waiting for other bloggers, we took part in the lush #crueltyfreekisses campaign for International Kissing Day on 6th of July.
After applying Lush’s cruelty free lipstick and posting the images on twitter and instagram we took part in making our own face mask using all fresh and natural ingredients. We made the Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mask suitable for all skin types. One of the staff member who was showing us how create the mask, explained us in detail all about natural ingredients and what products to use to achieve a healthy and beautiful skin. Since I have oily skin with acne breakouts she also explained what products I could use and I was given a sample to try out. I am so excited to use the masks, and I shall update you ladies in my future post about my experience. By the end of the activity we received a goody bag which included the face mask we created as a part of the activity. It was a great experience and was delighted to have met the lush team and discovered their natural products.
So all you ladies who swear by green and organic products I would recommend trying out Lush Cosmetics, they create amazing natural products with great staff members who would help you choose the perfect product suitable for your skin.
After the lush activity we headed to Bill’s Covent garden for our monthly London Beauty Bloggers meetup. Bill’s restaurant had a great atmosphere and I got the opportunity to meet few great bloggers. I really enjoyed the meet up and recommend other beauty bloggers to join us if you are looking to meet like-minded people.
Hope you all liked the post. I would love to hear your feedback xx.
Some of these natural organic products below are great for daily skin care to achieve beautiful skin.
Try natural products ladies. They do work xx.
Did you know that coconut water is very good for skin and helps to achieve glowing skin. Coconut water is the purest liquid after water which hydrates the skin naturally making it look younger and supple. The antioxidants present in coconut water helps keeping the skin looking younger and prevents aging. Coconut water also has nutrients which is considered to give energy boost.
I personally drink Vitacoco natural coconut water everyday and feel refreshed. Hopefully with regular drinking, my skin will start glowing. Vitacoco coconut water is easily available at supermarkets in the UK. They do natural coconut water as well as coconut water mixed with peach and mango. I personally love both.
So ladies, give it a try and let me know your thoughts
I have acne scars and uneven skin tone on my face. I have been trying different products but didn’t get any results. I am firm believer of natural skin care and organic products and started searching on Google and on Youtube. I have discovered many bloggers and vloggers are talking about rosehip seed oil. Since I have oily skin I was bit hesitant on using oils but I saw few bloggers and vloggers mentioning it also works for oily skin and does wonders to the skin. Being a blogger I generally trust my fellow bloggers so started researching about the benefits of rosehip seed oil and if it can be used on oily skin.
After few searches on Google, I found out that rosehip seed oil is recommended to treat scarring from acne breakouts.If you are wondering what is Rosehip oil, then it’s basically pressed oil that is extracted from the seeds of wild rose bush. It’s a light oil and rich in vitamin A, Vitamin E, essential fatty acids, Omega 3 and Omega 6. Rosehip seed oil helps promote healthy skin and delays the effects of aging on skin. It also helps to reduce scars, wrinkles and stretch marks. Since the oil is very light it is easily absorbed and can be used daily.
After reading all the benefits I decided to go and buy rosehip seed oil. I wanted 100% organic natural product so I chose Trilogy 100% certified organic rosehip seed oil.
It’s a great product. I have been using this since 2 weeks and definitely have had visible results. I apply 3 drops twice daily after cleansing my face and neck. Since I have oily skin I don’t need to put a moisturizer afterwards and it’s not at all greasy and absorbs quickly. Also I dab some extra drops on my acne scars. I would definitely suggest all you ladies to give it a try.
I’ll be very happy to receive your feedback and comments.
