Review | Douvall’s Citrus Scented Argan Body Oil

Being a writer of all things beauty I’ve tried so many gorgeous products and I have to say I have found that for me I love products that are simple, easy to use and great little multi-taskers. I discovered Douvall’s in an early The Natural Beauty Box Edit and fell in love. I was so delighted to see another bottle of this lovely product in August’s Re.Fresh Edit. I’d previously tried the Sensual Argan Oil and received this lovely Citrus Argan Oil which smells incredible in the August Edit.

 

Douvall’s is a leading argan natural skincare and makeup range offering luxury and innovative products of the highest quality, good for you ingredients which are responsibly sourced. Created by mother and daughter team Alicia and Georgia Douvall, the exciting growing award-winning range was born after they discovered the phenomenal benefits of argan oil and found a gap in the market for a skincare and a makeup range that not only is multitasking, it is packed with naturally derived skin invigorating ingredients that really work, organic yet sexy, classy yet eco friendly and natural.

Sample Sunday | Dr Botanicals Cocoa & Coconut Superfood Reviving Hydrating Face Mask

This week I chose the product from my sample box and I managed to pull out this little Dr Botanicals Face Mask. My skin has been feeling quite dry with the cold weather setting in and of course with all the mask-wearing we have to do. This smells so lovely.

 

This is the first time I’ve tried anything from the Cocoa & Coconut range. Dr Botanicals is one of those brands that I like but I don’t really buy anything from them, however, I do have quite a few full-size products I picked up in their secret sale that I’m dying to try. It’s definitely becoming one of my favourite brands.

Book Review | The Rug Bear By Emma Rattray

I love reading there’s no doubt about that and always encourage my boys to read, the munchkin enjoys our little alone time reading and it’s something that I’ve introduced to the baby. Now he’s becoming more engaged and wants to look at the books we’ve started to read together every other day. So I was delighted when I was asked if I’d like to have a copy of Emma Rattray’s *The Rug Bear to review.

 

Illustrated by Michael Terry (The Selfish Crocodile), The Rug Bear is an engaging picture book for young children (aged 0-5) that is full of fun characters to look out for on every page. A perfect book for parents and children to read together, the book features a game of hide and seek that takes a rather unexpected turn.

Review | Skin Alchemists Charred Rose Artisan Soap

Soaps, I’m a massive fan and I’m forever trying new ones. I have a thing about washing my hands and making sure they’re clean more so now we’re not only in the middle of a pandemic but growing so closer to flu season so that means there’s even more bugs and germs about.

 

This lovely Artisan soap was in my August Re.Fresh Edit of The Natural Beauty Box and I was quite excited about it, especially as I have tried some products from the Skin Alchemists before and have loved them. Skin Alchemists are a fabulous high-end brand that has some of the most luxurious products. You either got Charred Rose or Fresh Mint. The one I received was the Charred Rose.

Sample Sunday | Ayumi Naturals Turmeric & Argan Oil Body Wash

This week I chose a product from my sample box myself and just pulled out the first thing my hand touched. It’s a sample sachet that I received in a beauty box a while back, not sure when if I’m honest and I loved the sound of it.

 

I’ve heard of the brand before and seen it around, I think this is the first time I’ve tried a product of theirs. This was lovely and for a small sachet, there was quite a good amount of product inside. I think I got 3 showers out of this.

So when I saw this little gem in my August Re.Fresh Edit of The Natural Beauty Box I was pretty excited, especially as this has been on my to-try list for quite some time so was really pleased to see it. If you want to see what else I received you can head on over to my post here.

Sample Sunday | Weleda Kids 2in1 Shampoo & Body Wash

This week I let the munchkin choose a product from my sample box and he chose this one to try on the baby. It’s a little sample sachet that I think we got in a magazine I think and as I love Weleda products I thought this would be a great one to try.

 

This is the first time I’ve come across anything from their kid’s range and it smells delicious. Weleda is one of my favourite brands and one that I will turn to over and over again because the quality of their products is fantastic and I’ve loved a lot of products I’ve tried, and of course their baby range. This is something I can use not just on the baby but on the munchkin too.
