Review: Exotic Body Wash With Organic Coconut & Organic Vanilla by Lavera (Eco Natural Products)

Eco Natural Products kindly sent me a little gift to try out on my sensitive skin and review it on my blog. It is the 100% natural & organic cruelty-free Exotic Body Wash by Lavera which is enriched with organic coconut & organic vanilla. It is a mild and gentle body wash made with organic plant ingredients and natural essential oils. It is free-from harsh chemicals and skin irritants such as parabens, SLS/ALS, paraffin, phthalate, plastic microbeads and mineral oil and it is also free of GMO’s, colourants, synthetic fragrances and preservatives. It is dermatologically approved and non-drying on the skin – making it feel cleansed, smooth, silky soft and moisturised.

They have over 300 natural and organic beauty and skincare products which are all formulated without synthetic preservatives, colours or fragrances, and developed for sensitive skin. They also do make-up, skin-care, hair-care and baby-care as well as others.

Literally everything. They have an online store as well a local shop in Bournemouth and mainly sell foreign beauty & skincare products which are not available to buy elsewhere in the UK – which makes them pretty special, hey!

First Impressions:

The Exotic Body Wash comes in a big 200 ml aqua blue and white, squeezy tube and it has a lockable white flip-lid. There is quite a lot of product in the tube, so it will last a while. The packaging is bright and pretty and the blue on the bottle is so gorgeous, it is one of my fave colours. The tube has all the relevant information printed on the back, such as ingredients, how to use, etc… The body wash itself is clear, transparent and has a smooth, gel-like consistency. It smells absolutely gorgeous too, very sweet and ‘coconutty’, I am a big coconut fan and just love coconut skincare products, so this was like actual heaven for me.

My Thoughts On The Exotic Body Wash:

Like I mentioned above it smells really lovely & nice, I absolutely love the smell of creamy coconut and sweet vanilla but I did find that the scent did not linger on my skin after using, it still smells amazing though!  I use mine as a body wash when taking a bath and I use it as a shower gel too, I just apply a bit of the body wash to a bath sponge and wash my whole body with it. I also use it as bubble bath by adding a little of the product under a warm running tap to create lots of gorgeous bubbles. I’ve even washed my face with it a couple of times too – I know it’s a body wash but I don’t care, my face feels so soft and clean afterwards. It works up a great little lather and feels so soft and gentle on the skin – before using this body wash, my skin was feeling dry and irritated and after using for a couple of days straight, (twice a day) my skin is much calmer and softer now. I love how it doesn’t contain any nasty ingredients as I find when I use skincare products with chemicals in, my psoriasis flares up days later. The Exotic Body Wash has been so gentle on my skin and I can definitely see it being a favourite of mine from now on.

I also think it is 100% great value for money as the tube has a lot of product in so it’s long-lasting and the ingredients are all natural and kind. I have found most natural & organic products that I have tried to be a bit on the expensive side, so I was surprised at how cheap this was at just under 7 quid. There is nothing at all that I don’t like about the Exotic Body Wash and I’m excited to try out some other products from Lavera to help my sensitive skin & my psoriasis.

Would I buy again?

I would definitely re-purchase the Exotic Body Wash again as I love how gentle it is on my skin and doesn’t irritate my psoriasis either. There is an Exotic Body Lotion too which I will have to try. I love discovering new brands and finding new products to try on my skin and I will certainly be browsing a few other brands on Eco Natural Products’ website to see what else I can get next. Eco Natural Products is a great little online store and they have such wonderful customer service – so I highly recommend them and I will certainly be shopping with them again.

Recommended For:

I would recommend the Exotic Body Wash to just about anyone! It is perfect for people who prefer to use cruelty-free skincare products and I would especially recommend the body wash for those with sensitive, dry and allergy prone skin and anybody who suffers with skin problems and skin disorders such as psoriasis and eczema.

Foamy Banana Sweet Treats Bath Cream by Imperial Leather

Hey girls,

Long time no see hey, well… today I have a short and sweet little review for you all. I have been using one of Imperial Leather’s Sweet Treats Bath Cream in Foamy Banana and I’m loving the idea of there sweet Treats Bath Creams which are named after and smell like real sweets.

The Foamy Banana Bath Cream is just a dream. It is a thick pale yellow gel like cream that lathers really well and feels fabulous on the skin leaving it feeling cleansed, soft and scented. It even produces a good amount of bubbles when used as a bubble bath. It smells AMAZING! Exactly like the foam banana sweets, such a sweet, fabulous scent. I use mine as a bubble bath, a shower gel and a body wash and it really is a lush treat for your skin. Not only does it smell good but it leaves skin feeling soft and smooth too.

I can’t wait to try the other ‘flavours’ out, the Sherbert Lemon and Marshmellow bath cream are already on my shopping list. The bath creams retail at around £1 and a big 500ml bottle will last a while so they are definately bargains. I picked mine up in Boots but they are available in Asda, Home Bargains and Superdrug too.

Review: Peach Melba ‘Just Peachy’ Shower Gel | Dolly’s Mixtures

Hey you little beauties,

I was out and about yesterday doing my weekly food shop and whilst I was on my way home I decided to pop into Home Bargains to get some toiletries as they are much cheaper than everywhere else and every penny counts with me, ha. As I walked down the beauty isle I noticed this bottle of Peach Melba ‘Just Peachy’shower gel by Dolly’s Mixtures sitting on the shelf and I initially thought it was some kind of peachy drink at first. It was a good job that I had my specs on because I could have ended up burping bubbles all-night in A&E otherwise. Ha! Never had I heard of ‘Dolly’s Mixtures’ before so like I do with every beauty product I purchase, I did a little research on the brand when I got home and found out Dolly’s Mixtures shower gels are actually quite popular. Erm… where have I been?

jk

First impressions were good, the packaging looks kind of vintagey and pretty, featuring a 1950’s pin-up like lady on the packaging, making me hooked straight away but after flipping up the lid and taking a little whiff, I just had to get my self one. It has a gorgeous, sweet, adorable scent and smells quite strongly of peaches – although it is not an overpowering scent. I have used this as a bubble bath as well as a shower gel and I had a heavenly little bath last night with some tea-lights lit. My bathroom smelled so good! I only needed to add a small amount to the running water to produce a good amount of bubbles. I did think the peachy smell would disappear as soon as it hit the water but it still smelled peachy strong and when applied to my skin with a sponge, it lathered well and even left a peachy smell lingering on my skin for a short while afterwards. I love how inexpensive these shower gels are too and there is quite a bit of gel in the bottle too.

Apparently Dolly’s Mixtures products themselves are not tested on animals so that’s always great to hear but the one thing I disliked about the shower gel was that it had a chemical: ‘Sodium Laureth Sulfate’ listed in the ingredients (click here for more info) and you may know some studies have shown it can be toxic and a skin irritant so I would love these shower gels a whole lot more if they didn’t contain any nasty SLS ingredients. I have very sensitive skin and psoriasis so sometimes my skin reacts to certain chemicals in beauty products but I haven’t noticed any irritation to my skin since I have used this, so all good baby.

Where to buy?

Mine was 79p from Home Bargains but I believe ASDA are the main stockists. I so can’t wait for my next ASDA trip to check out the other ‘flavours’ as Home Bargains only had ‘Peach Melba’ in stock. ‘Bubble-gum’ and ‘Pina Colada’ are next on my wish list!

Have any of you used Dolly’s Mixtures shower gels? What is your favourite one?

Love

p.s: I think these would also make great little cheap gifts. I will defo be getting a few of these and adding some pretty little sponges and tea-lights wrapped in some cellophane and a pretty bow to give as gifts this Christmas.

Disclosure: I bought this.
