I recently received a lovely little package from Lena at 'Soaps Naturally'.
Soaps Naturally sell gorgeous high quality, hand made, Soaps and Body Balms and other goodies. All of the products are free of all Parabens and Petrochemicals - all the soaps in the 'Pure Nature' range do not contain any synthetic scents or colorants.
These soaps are full of vitamins, microelements and natural oils - to name a few. They help to combat 'spots, rashes, eczema and other skin ailments.
Lena generously sent me two soaps to try - 'Coffee & Cinnamon' and 'Prickly Pear' she also included a body balm in 'Chocolate Kiss'.
The soaps and balms come packaged in stunning wrapping paper and are clearly labelled. The full list of ingredients are noted on the reverse side so you know exactly what they contain - you definitely won't find any nasties here.
|Coffee & Cinnamon|
The soaps, admittedly aren't the most appealing on first sight but do not let this put you off. They smell lush! Both Coffee & Cinnamon and Prickly Pear leave your bathroom smelling divine afterwards, as well as yourself of course! Prickly Pear is my absolute favourite. I have been using these in the shower for the past month and unlike other soaps they haven't dried my skin out at all, which I thought they might do. In fact, my skin has been left feeling fresh and soft.
Now onto the crème de la crème, not only spoilt with massive slices of soap, I was sent this massive slice of body balm which is beautiful! I am a big fan of body balms/butters and this did not disappoint.
These balms contain shea butter, sweet almond oil, cocoa nut oil, beeswax, herbal extracts. If you are a chocolate lover you will love this scent.
The balms are quite thick in consistency and can be used on both your skin and lips. Extremely good for the driest patches of your skin i.e knees, elbows and heels. I enjoy using this to moisturise after I have had my shower in the evening.
Directions - 'Select a small piece of balm, apply it on the selected skin area and then massage it in until the balm is completely absorbed.
In the past I have often avoided soaps and turned to shower gels but these have changed my mind. I really recommend that you take a look at the wide range over at www.soapsnaturally.co.uk and try them out (especially the body balm).
*these were sent for review, my opinions are as always my own.
