HURRAY for Hurraw! // Coconut Scented Lip Balm - Hurraw!

It takes a lot to find someone who is:

1. As obsessed with lip balm as I am.
2. Is as specific with lip balm as I can be.

Enter, Hurraw!

Their criteria matches mine entirely in what I’m looking for when sourcing the perfect soothing balm: A smooth, long lasting balm that’s non-draggy, non-grainy, not too sticky, glossy or scented and could hold up to the task without melting in your back pocket.

Not content with creating the raddest, purest product around - their lip balm is geniusly oval shaped for a perfect glide on application - and their commitment to creating a product that is environmentally conscious and ethically balanced, through organic and fairly traded sourcing is to be celebrated.

Their helpful downloadable PDF - giving a detailed descriptive list of ingredients - shows a refreshing transparency that for me, is not only impressive but stands them out from the crowd.

HONEST HANDS // Bergamot & Rosemary Handwash, HONEST Skincare

I’m a mega fan of Katie’s. With a background in holistic apothecary she’s translated her knowledge of nature’s healing potentials into one of the most stylish and beautifully designed skincare brands out there.

For me it ticks all the boxes; Honest prioritises using the very best in pure ingredients that are safe to use on the body as well as being environmentally aware, through packaging that is recyclable with minimal waste in the studio.

Using the Bergamot & Rosemary Hand Wash leaves no residue - only a clean, balancing feel that doesn't dry my skin out. I chose the Bergamot & Rosemary fragrance from Workshop for it’s warmth and familiarity during the chilly Winter months. Plus its classic glass brown bottle container means I can keep the bottle to re-use for the future.

COMING UP ROSES // Rose & Patchouli Hand & Body Lotion - The Aromatherapy Co.

This was a Christmas present from my thoughtful Mother-in-Law who specifically sought something out for me that was safe and free from nasty chemicals.

I’d never heard of The Aromatherapy Co. before then but what I like about them is their honesty in their values and aims towards becoming a more environmentally sustainable company. 

Using only the finest essential oils and not synthetics in this lotion for a starter, as well staying away from other synthetic ingredients. 

As a product to wear, the lotion spreads thickly - almost like a liquid balm - and is equally as restorative and refreshing. The floral scent is not too heavy and as a lotion is easy for the skin to drink in quickly.
