Dr. Botanicals – Coconut Oil Rejuvenating Body Exfoliating Bar Review

About two months ago, Dr. Botanicals, a vegan friendly, cruelty-free skincare brand, sent me one of their Coconut Oil Rejuvenating Body Exfoliating Bars to review on my blog. I’ve got quite a few of Dr. Botanicals products which I’ve been sent over the last year or so and they are one of my fave skincare brands. All of their products are vegan friendly and cruelty free and they contain no harsh ingredients that irritate sensitive skin just natural, quality, skin-loving ingredients which are kind to skin (and animals).

‘Hydrate, Cleanse and Gently Exfoliate. Shredded coconut gently exfoliates the skin while coconut oil moisturises the skin and creamy coconut aroma works to unwind your mind.‘ Dr. Botanicals.


First Impressions:

The soap comes in a small, cardboard box which is recyclable and eco-friendly. No plastic in sight. Inside the box is the 100g soap bar, which is square-shaped, beigey-brown in colour and it has a gorgeous, creamy, natural coconut aroma.

WP_20180411_21_20_52_Pro

The main active ingredient in the soaps formulation is Shell Powder, which contains nutrients like collagen, chondroitin, glucosamine, and hyaluronic acid. It has anti-oxidant activity which protects the skin from free radical damage and also has moisture holding properties which smooth and hydrate the skin. Dr. Botanicals say the soap can be used on the face as well as the body and hands although I haven’t used it on my face, as I’ve had severe breakouts in the past after washing my face with soap, so never again.


Thoughts:

 This soap smells AMAZING! I love everything coconut so it’s no surprise that I love this soap, coconut products have done wonders for my skin in the past and I couldn’t recommend them enough for sensitive skin.

Dr. Botanicals say the soap helps to gently exfoliate dead skin cells but I don’t find it to be exfoliating at all. Maybe the exfoliation is too gentle for my skin type. It is a super moisturising, hydrating soap though and after using my skin feels clean, smoother and soft. It lathers okay for a natural soap too.

My followers will know that I have psoriasis and I believe this soap has been so gentle and mild on my skin – it hasn’t irritated my sensitive skin and it hasn’t made my psoriasis any worse, which I think is down to the natural ingredients and the fact doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals. It’s also a long-lasting soap as well, I’ve been using mine for over two months now and although it has withered down a little there is still a lot left.

So, I love the soap – but I don’t like the price tag. All of Dr. Botanicals products are a bit on the expensive side, I wish they weren’t as I love their products! I don’t know about you guys but nearly 20 quid for a soap is not something I’d pay to be honest! Don’t get me wrong,  I have no complaints – it’s gentle, vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, natural, moisturising and it doesn’t dry the skin out, but, I wouldn’t repurchase for £20.

Totally out of my soap budget, ha.

Vaseline® Active Fresh Anti-Perspirant Deodorant With ProDerma – Review

Girlies,

I’ve got another deodorant review for you today. Because I have fragrance sensitivities I am always on the hunt for a deodrant that I like which doesn’t cause me violent headaches so I often prefer roll-on deodarants over aerosols because they are less likely to cause migraines. I thought I would give the Vaseline Active Fresh deodorant a try as it is alcohol free which means it is anti sting and not likely to irritate my sensitive skin. I’ve used tons of products from Vaseline in the past and I have never had a problem with any of their stuff so I thought I’d give this a whirl.

What is it?

It is a 150ml aerosol deodorant manufactured by Vaseline with a ProDerma complex which helps to protect the underarm skin which is very delicate. It is also suitable for sensitive skin and has been dermatologically tested as well as being alcohol free so it doesn’t sting and it doesn’t dry the skin on your armpits. Vaseline also say it is long lasting and it will give 48hours protection.

mmm

Vaseline say:

While sweating is a natural reaction to a rise in temperature it can often result in sweat marks, odour, and even discolouration of your clothes. In order to manage your body’s response, we have designed the Vaseline® Active Fresh Anti-Perspirant with ProDerma™ technology, a unique blend of skin-caring ingredients, which mimics the skin’s own protective layer and make it less prone to irritation. It keeps you dry all day and cares for your underarm resulting in healthy looking protected skin.

First impressions:

Just a simple 150ml aerosol bottle with the typical Vaseline packaging. Bottle looks fresh and modern but nothing special. I did notice that it doesn’t have the cruelty free bunny on the back of the bottle but the packaging can be recycled.

mkm.png

Why did I like it?

I liked it because it is alcohol free so it didn’t sting after applying like most deodorants do. It has a nice, fresh, mild scent that isn’t too overpowering and because I’m sensitive to most artificial fragrances and chemicals (the reason I prefer ‘natural’ toiletries) I often get migraines after using most deodorants, I’m happy to say that the scent didn’t cause me any major headaches. I did feel a little brain fog after using it but it didn’t last very long. My underarms also felt amazingly soft and protected too and it I’m happy to say that it didn’t irritate my sensitive skin. It did what it said on the tin and I found it to be long lasting and my pits smelt nice and fresh the next day after using it. The fresh scent lingered on the skin too and I could still smell it the next day.

What I didn’t like?

Nothing really, except that Unilever is the manufacture of Vaseline products and I’m sure that the company tests on animals so I would feel a million times better if this deodorant had the leaping cruelty free bunny on the bottle but unfortunately it hasn’t. So if you are strongly against testing on animals I would look elsewhere as I’m guessing this is not cruelty free.

mnmkm.png

Will I use again?

Yes, I liked it; it worked at keeping my armpits dry and kept body odour at bay for well over 48 hours without causing a full blown migraine or irritating my underarm skin. It smells very nice too and I love how soft my armpits feel after using it so I probably would buy it again, yes.

Where to buy?

You can get this deodarant almost aywhere, for example: Boots, Superdrug, Asda etc… Amazon UK sell it too!

Love

Indian Healing Clay (Powder) from Majestic Pure

 

HI GIRLS!

I was so excited when this therapeutic grade Indian Healing Clay arrived from Majestic Pure. I love my facemasks and use them quite regularly. I love them even more when they don’t contain any nasties or chemicals. I’ve used all kinds of clay facemasks in the past mainly 7th Heaven ones which come in a little pouch as well as sheet-masks from a Korean beauty store, but I have never tried any from Majestic Pure as I’ve only recently became a fan of their products. I’ve had lots of their essential oils though and I they were good quality & I really loved them, so I got myself this Indian Healing Clay which contains 100% Pure Sodium Bentonite and nothing else! I’ve also ordered a Dead Sea Mud Mask from Majestic Pure so I can’t wait until that arrives either!

13340113_10209408541554818_6141567183190138504_o

 What Is Clay?

Clay makes a fabulous face mask for shrinking pores, tightening and toning skin, removing impurities, getting rid of dead skin cells and just making your skin look and feel good! It’s good for soothing the skin and is especially good for treating cuts, bruises, insect bites, bee stings, boils, rashes achy joints, acne and burns amongst others!

For more info on Pure Sodium Bentonite, click here.

Before I get into my review, I have to give you a little tip/warning – If you buy this, before you open the tub, don’t lie down when your opening it for the first time! I lied on my bed lying down and began to open the tub to have a nose at the contents… What happened? All the powder went all over my new top! Ha-ha. I really thought this was a ready made face mask and it was solid clay and all yo do was dip your hands into the tub then apply it as it is, straight to your face – but it’s not… It’s clay POWDER which you add water to and then mix to a smooth paste! Blonde moment! So be careful when you open this so you don’t waste any product!

13392170_10209408531394564_1279123767487169732_o

I was very pleased at how big the tub is. It looks much bigger than the picture the company have displayed, which actually looks quite little compared to when the tub is in front of you. It does say that the tub is 16oz but I’m useless at oz, fl, mg, g measurements and the likes so I never had a clue about how much product I was buying. I did expect this to be a much smaller tub!

On the side of the tub are directions for use which is handy as I had never used clay powder before so I didn’t know how to mix it – definitely saved me a Google search trip. For the face all you do is mix 3 parts water with one part clay powder then mix it until you’ve got yourself a smooth paste! Put it on your face and leave on for 20 minutes. It does say if you have sensitive skin you should leave the clay on for 10 minutes only and reduce the time in half. To wash off – just use lukewarm water. Simple! This can also be used for clay baths and foot soaks tot, the clay draws toxins from the skin and pores so it’s great for your body as well as your face, but I’ve only tried it on my face at the moment.

13415437_10209408531474566_4860125150954623036_o

When mixing this I put 3 parts water and 1 part clay powder into a bowl and mixed but it didn’t seem I had done it properly so I added a bit more clay and water and mixed like mad, it was lumpy to begin with but after continuously mixing I was left with a smooth paste. I scooped it up with my fingers and slathered it all on my face (you might want to wear plastic gloves as it gets messy!) I left the clay mask on my face for about 20-25 minutes and felt it drying after 5 minutes. I love how clay masks feel on the skin when they dry. I then washed it off with warm water and dried with towel. My face did look a bit red once it was washed off but the redness faded, I think my skin is more sensitive than I thought and I probably should have left it on for 10 minutes instead. When the redness faded, my skin looked great and was lovely and soft to touch. I’m going to use this 1-2 a week, I’m hoping for a clearer complexion and I’ve tried everything to get rid of impurities and blackheads under my skin on my nose and nothing has worked so far. As this clay draws out impurities and toxins I think my skin will definitely improve the more I use it! Best thing is the powder will last a lifetime as only one scoop is needed each time!

13392242_10209408569875526_1648435479118701327_o

You can get some here from Magestic Pure on Amazon UK. It’s £8.49 to buy.

Kathryn Anne – Pure Aromatherapy | Luxurious & Nourishing Skincare

Essential Oil Products | Pure Aromatherapy

As stated in my previous posts, I’ve jumped on the natural products bandwagon and decided to look after my skin without the use of nasty chemicals.

You may know that I am a psoriasis sufferer, which is an autoimmune skin disorder, very similar to eczema in appearance. So it especially important that I use gentle products on my skin.

After browsing the internet for natural products to use for my skin as well as something safe and natural to help my insomnia. I came across Pure Aromatherapy which was founded by Holistic Therapist, Kathryn Anne. Her company, which is based in Kings Cliffe in Peterborough sell all things aromatherapy, from creams, reed diffusers to oils and gift sets.

I read the testimonials on the website and was pretty sure on trying Pure Aromatherapy products after reading the great reviews.

Great thing about Pure Aromatherapy is the communication and wonderful customer service skills from Kathryn Anne, I contacted her through the website and asked if she could recommend any products for people with psoriasis and anything I could use to help ease my insomnia… I had a reply almost instantly with wonderful tips and details of the products she thought would help. So if you’re not sure what products to purchase, just drop her an email or contact her on Facebook page and I’m certain she will do her best to help you.
Anyway, after deciding on the products I was going to try, a day or two later I received a parcel from the lovely Kathryn Anne. I was super impressed how fast delivery was.

In my parcel were four items, they were: Luxurious Face Cream, Nourishing Hand Cream, Luxurious Body Lotion and lastly, Lavender Essential Oil.

1508658_1507299269562757_2645353128972085759_n
 I’ve been trying these products for over a month now, I would have posted my review sooner but I’ve had a run of bad luck these last few weeks. First my laptop broke then after waiting two weeks for it to be sent back to me, repaired, my broadband connection decides to have some technical difficulties in my street. Talk about coincidental.  So I’ve only just been able to write. Although, the little run of bad luck has annoyed me so much, it has certainly gave me enough time to try the creams out. I will definitely be buying more when I have ran out.

I can’t believe that after a month of using the creams there is still plenty left. I’m now considering trying the products I haven’t yet tried as I’m sure they will be just as good as those I have tried.

Luxurious Face Cream

12191502_1507299329562751_2290580880311998980_n

Enriched with Rose, Sandalwood and Lavender, this cream is my absolute favourite from Pure Aromatherapy. I have been using it 3 times a day because I love it so much. Morning, Evening and again at bedtime. I have even been using it together with my Braun Face Cleansing Brush which was included with an Epilator. The cream acts like a cleanser for the brush and leaves my skin super soft, hydrated and cleansed, pore deep.

I would 100,000,000% recommend the Luxurious Face Cream to anybody with dry, dull skin on their face and especially those who are in need of a major moisture boost. This cream has seriously put moisture back into my face and I was pretty much hooked after the first use. Within two minutes, if that, of trying the cream on my face, I could notice the change almost instantly. I had really dry, dull skin that lacked radiance and youthfulness beforehand and first time using this cream I was so impressed.

I love using this cream before I put my make-up on too as it gives me a smooth base to apply my foundation on. Before I used this cream, it was hard work spreading my foundation across my skin as it was so dry. My make-up was always left patchy which is not a pretty sight for a perfectionist like myself.

Other face creams I used in the past have all had great benefits but had their downfalls too such as, taking too long to dry, leaving my skin greasy or making my foundation behave like tinted moisturiser which having blemished skin is not the look I aim for. If I wanted tinted moisturiser, I would buy tinted moisturiser, ha ha.

I prefer the full coverage and the Luxurious Face Cream enables me to have just that. It dries very quickly, soaks into the skin and instead of having shiny, greasy skin which make-up easily slides off after applied, I’m left with matte skin that is deeply moisturised and makeup products stay put. My makeup also glides on smoothly and appears much more natural. The Luxurious Face Cream acts like a primer for my make-up.

Since using this face cream my complexion has definitely improved. This cream will be apart of my daily beauty regime from now on and I’m so happy I have discovered it. 😊

Nourishing Hand Cream

12191482_1507299386229412_505583818790319985_n

My mum and I were talking the other day and I mentioned how my hands appeared much older than hers, (She is 51 years old, I’m 28). It’s true… Even my boyfriend has better looking hands than I do and he works in woodwork construction as a Carpenter and Joiner. His hands are covered in scars and its obvious his occupation consists of manual handwork. But somehow, my hands looked like I had worked my hands solid since the day I was born.

My hands looked as if I was a grandmother, no lie.  My skin was so dry and wrinkly, my nails were so weak and brittle and the overall appearance of my hands were not as attractive as I’d hoped they would be. I don’t know if having psoriasis is the reason my hands looked so unhappy or if it’s just one of those things. Until now, I had never in my life cared for my hands which, lets face it, this is probably the main reason my hands looked older than myself. I had never used hand cream either, quite shocking to say I’m beauty product mad. I’ve always thought hand creams never worked as well as the adverts said they did and didn’t understand the big hype about them.

I also think being cursed with a skin disorder and having psoriasis mainly on my hands for like 20 years has made me a bit apprehensive about putting creams on my delicate skin. Especially fragrant creams (creams that have a nice smell). But, after educating my self about essential oils and eventually realising that not all creams that smell nice only smell that way because of fragrant chemicals. I’ve happily discovered that beautiful scented creams that have essential oils included, infuses the fragrance from natural plants and fruits rather than being a nasty chemical additive that most products include. Infused is good enough for me.

So, I decided to try a hand cream out for once in my life. The Nourishing Hand Cream from Pure Aromatherapy is enriched with Jasmine and Rose pure essential oils and smells absolutely amazing –  like all creams do from Pure Aromatherapy. Using the Luxurious Hand Cream on my hands has definitely got me on board caring for my hands.

First time using this cream I was really happy and a little amazed if I’m honest with the end results. I applied a little to my palms and spread over my entire hands. After leaving to dry for around five minutes my hands appeared much younger looking and softer in appearance as well as softer to touch.

My knuckles, which are unfortunately covered in psoriasis plaques appear much lighter in appearance and don’t look so rough and dry as they did. I’ve never had soft hands in my life, as far as I can remember, so it feels very weird having silky smooth hands, ha ha. Obviously the psoriasis on my knuckles are still there but unlike before they are not as aggravated looking or red and scaly, instead they are paler in appearance and actually look like they are about to clear up.

I’m going to continue using this hand cream and I’m hoping that it will eventually make my knuckle psoriasis disappear until my next flare up. Which will no doubt happen in the future. I will keep you all updated on my progress.

So, overall thought about the Nourishing Hand Cream is just one massive thumbs up. I love how softer my hands appear and it has definitely give me the incentive to take good care of my hands and nails. ! I’m finally a lady who takes care of her hands. Woohoo!

Big thanks to Kathryn Anne at Pure Aromatherapy for changing my mind about hand cream. I guess they do work, afterall. So, this is another product from Pure Aromatherapy that has made it into my daily beauty regime.

Do you want to try the Nourishing Hand Cream for yourself? It is now only £7.75 to buy!

Luxurious Body Lotion

luxuriousbodylotion-250x250

First of all I am going to tell you all about the scent of the Luxurious Body Lotion as it was without a doubt the first thing I noticed about this cream. Orange essential oil is an absolute dream. One of my favourite scents ever!. lose your eyes and imagine sitting in a room with millions of freshly sliced oranges’ and this is how the Luxurious Body Lotion smells to me. Forget the smell of orange cordial, this orangey scent smells like real oranges’ and I absolutely love it.

Every time I put the lotion onto my skin my nose is firmly pressed to my skin just taking in the scent. It’s beautiful. The Luxurious Body Lotion is also enriched with other essential oils, Jasmine and Sandalwood but my nose definitely picks up the Orange essential oil first.
I’ll be completely honest, I was a little wary trying this lotion because when I was training to be a Chef a few years back, my tutor told me that citrus fruits’ irritate psoriasis skin causing an allergic reaction so if I handled any citrus fruit I was advised to wear gloves. I’m not sure if it is the actual fruit alone or anything to do with the fruit. So, for a few days I tried the lotion on one arm to see if I had any type of reaction. Thank God, I never, but I thought I’d rather be safe than sorry.  After the three day trial on one arm, I went ahead and used the lotion all over my body.
For the past four weeks, I’ve been using The Luxurious Body Lotion after my nighttime bath. In the past I have used Johnson’s Baby Lotion to moisture my ski, but  I hate how long it takes to dry. With the Luxurious Body Lotion I’m able to get dressed quickly as itsoaks into my skin so quickly.  I really love using the lotion before bedtime, as the scent of the lotion is so relaxing and calming and makesit me feel clean and refreshed.. My skin is also  much softer than it was before and the psorias prone areas of my body, for example,  my elbows, knees and ankles,  have greatly improved. With continued us of the lotion I’m hoping my psoriasis will stay as calm as it is now. The fragrance of the lotion is still there the next morning. It really does smell amazing. Lots of friends have commented about the scent saying that I smell lovely. Almost good enough to eat!

All of the creams I have tried from Pure Aromatherapy’s Luxurious &  Nourishing Collections have certainly had extra benefits too, as well as keeping my skin silky soft the uplifting aroma’s they have definitely made me much more relaxed and chilled. They are wonderful creams that help to relieve stress and ease anxiety too.

Lavender Essential Oil

Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten to write about the Lavender Essential Oil… As mentioned above, I was also sent some fabulous Lavender essential oil from Pure Aromatherapy to help my insomnia but the review was long enough to be its own post, so that is what I have done. If you suffer with sleep problems like myself, make sure to read my Lavender review post in the near future for some really great tips to get a great nights sleep.. l’ll be including my thoughts on sleep hypnosis and white noise too.

KANDACARE Psoriasis Skin Care Products… Shampoo, Conditioner, Shower Gel & Soothing Body Gel – Review

KANDACARE REVIEW

Hello my loves!

I’m on a mission to find the best skincare products to help my psoriasis and will be reviewing plenty over the following weeks. Hopefully I can help you decide on the psoriasis products for your skin.

Lately, I’ve been using a couple of products from a company called KANDACARE who make natural, gentle and soothing skincare products for people with psoriasis.

What I’ve Been Using

11221507_1496120320680652_3686636791102173545_o

I’ve been treating my scalp psoriasis by washing my hair with the KANDACARE Psoriasis Shampoo & Conditioner which are £6.99 to buy separately or £13.65 for both. These can be purchased on the KANDACARE website.

I’ve been cleansing my skin whilst bathing/showering with KANDACARE Psoriasis Shower Gel which is also £6.99 to buy from the KANDACARE website.

Lastly, after bathing/showering, I have used KANDACARE Body Gel to soothe my irritable skin. The Gel is £8.95 to buy.

How The Products Look and Smell

The products’ packaging is really simple and refreshing. White bottles with green and blue labels that shout natural goodness. The products have a slight herby, natural, outdoors scent that has a hint of rosemary and lavender. They are not as strong smelling as your average skincare products. I love how they smell! ❤

How To Apply

Shampoo – Like with all shampoos; wet hair and scalp, putting a small amount of shampoo onto hair massage into your scalp and roots, through to the ends. Rinse all shampoo off and continue with the conditioner.

Conditioner – After rinsing shampoo off, put a good amount of conditioner onto your hair massaging into your scalps and the ends of hair to care for any split ends you may have. Wash off and style your hair as normal.
(TIP: Leave conditioner on for two minutes to deeply condition your locks. Rinse conditioner off with cold water as this will enhance shine.)

Shower Gel – Whilst showering (or taking a bath) squeeze a little shower gel onto your hands, a sponge or a flannel and proceed to cleanse your skin.

Body Gel – This gel can be used at any time but I prefer to use it after my regular night time bath. Simply put on to the affected areas, leaving it to dry and give your skin some TLC.

What I Liked About The KANDACARE products.

First of all, KANDACARE products’ are not tested on animals and are suitable for vegans too. I’m a big animal lover so this gets a massive thumbs up from me.

Secondly, the products don’t contain Parabens’ or Sodium Lauryl Sulphate.

For those who aren’t aware:

Parabens are chemical preservatives and although preservatives are sometimes important in products where water has been added, (they prevent bacteria forming) there has been a study that claimed parabens have been found in breast tumors. This hasn’t been confirmed by the medical industry just yet, but it has not been dismissed either.

Sodium Lauryl Sulphate is used throughout the world for clinical testing as a primary skin irritant. Laboratories use it to irritate skin on test animals and humans so that they may then test healing agents to see how effective they are on the irritated skin. It reacts with many types of ingredients used in skin care products and forms nitrosamines (nitrates). Nitrates are potential cancer-causing carcinogenic’s.

Finally, I loved the refreshing and calming scent. A good smelling shampoo really does put you in a relaxed good mood. The Shampoo calmed my itchy scalp and gave me great smelling, clean hair. I especially loved the shower gel and felt happy knowing I was using a safe, gentle cleanser for my skin. This will definitely replace my usual soap in future. I have used the body gel after bathing, The gel is not a cure for psoriasis (it relieves and soothes), but the psoriasis on my wrists have since cleared up. The rest of my psoriasis has pretty much stayed the same (it hasn’t healed nor got worse) What I have noticed is that I haven’t itched as much and my red, scaly skin is definitely calmer, less irritated and happier.

I also love how the products contain natural essential oils that all contribute to looking after the skin, hair and scalp.

The essential oils are:

Lavender – It has been used throughout recorded history as a skin healer and anti-inflammatory which as a result soothes and heals gently whilst reducing or preventing the chance of scars.

Bergamot – A cooling agent which is also antiseptic and is included to prevent infection.

Chamomile – Like lavender is an anti-inflammatory which boosts resistance to irritation caused by inflammation. It helps to reduce swelling and its side-effects.

Rosemary – Which has been used since ancient times to boost both the immune and circulatory systems, protecting the skin. For these reason it is excellent in the reduction/control of plaque whilst also reducing itching and pain.

What I Didn’t Like About The KANDACARE Products.

The conditioner didn’t seem to moisturise my hair potentially compared to other regular conditioners, I have bleached blonde hair which is a little chemically damaged so maybe if my hair was healthier it would have felt alot softer. Although it didn’t condition my actual hair as much as I’d hoped, the conditioner did calm my itchy scalp.
