Ayumi Turmeric & Shea Butter Body Lotion


Ayumi Turmeric & Shea Butter Body Lotion
Ayumi is a brand that has combined extensive market research with the power of ancient Ayurvedic principles to create a range of hair, body and skin products that have been designed to pamper, replenish, nourish and protect from the rigours of modern living. Their product range includes shampoos & conditioners, hair oils & treatments, facial cleansers, scrubs & exfoliators, body washes & lotions, essential oils and so much more. Included in this guide is one of their body lotions - the Turmeric & Shea Butter Body Lotion.

The body lotion is perfect for dry, dehydrated and dull skin and is ideal for those with hyperpigmentation or age spots. It has been naturally formulated according to Ayurvedic principles to balance the Vata dosha. The body lotion is vegan and Cruelty Free Society Approved.

Coconut Merchant - CM La Vie Coconut Oil


Coconut Merchant La Vie Coconut Oil
The next product in the guide is a wonderful offering from Coconut Merchant - The CM La Vie Coconut Oil. Coconut Merchant's philosophy is founded on a principle of trade, not just aid. They believe that while there are times where aid is indeed needed, true economic development comes through commercial partnerships where both parties benefit. Supporting farmers is the ultimate objective of the brand.

The product that I have included in the guide is a premium-quality beauty oil that has been specially filtered to ensure that it has a low aroma, making it ideal for all your beauty needs. The oil is very hydrating, and can be applied directly to both skin and hair. It is a very versatile product and can be used a moisturiser, makeup remover, hair mask, lip balm or even for oil pulling to keep teeth and gums healthy, according to Coconut Merchant. I love this one guys, highly recommended!

And best of all the product is ethically sourced, vegan-friendly and 100% natural! The 300ml tub of oil is priced only at £9.99 and is available to buy from www.coconut-merchant.com

Yardley English Rose Luxury Body Wash and Silky Smooth Body Lotion


Yardley English Rose Luxury Body Wash and Silky Smooth Body Lotion
Next in the list, are two lovely products from Yardley London. Infused with the brand's English Rose fragrance, combining refreshing, light rose with notes of rose bud, magnolia and cassis, the body wash helps maintain the skins natural moisture levels while the body lotion leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth.

The body wash contains a nourishing blend of revitalising rose water, moisturising shea butter, evening primrose oil and monoi oil, rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidant vitamin E, for superior cleansing and hydration. The body lotion, on the other hand, is light and easily absorbed lotion with a refreshing, fresh floral with sparkling citrus and rose top notes blended with tea accord and it leaves the skin feeling soft, smooth and delicately fragranced. Both the products can be purchased from www.yardleylondon.co.uk

Philip Kingsley Pomegranate & Cassis Elasticizer


Philip Kingsley Pomegranate & Cassis Elasticizer
For the mom who loves her luscious locks, Philip Kingsley's Pomegranate and Cassis Elasticizer would make a wonderful gift. The Elasticizer according to the brand "plumps strands with moisture to add bounce, manageability and strength, smoothes the hair cuticle to create shine, and leaves hair looking much more vibrant."

Infused with the wonderful scent of pomegranate and sweet cassis, this intensive and luxurious pre-shampoo treatment, adds elasticity, bounce and shine to hair while the uplifting notes of pomegranate, cassis, and spicy undertones of ginger and nutmeg leave it smelling lovely. I love this. My hair feels so very soft and lovely after using the elasticizer. And the fragrance is gorgeous! The 150ml tub is priced at £34.00 and can be purchased online from www.philipkingsley.co.uk The Elasticizer is also available in two other variants - Original and Coconut Breeze.

Higher Nature Æterna Gold Collagen Crème Serum


Higher Nature Æterna Gold Collagen Crème Serum
Collagen levels begin to drop as we enter the 30s. This leaves the skin prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Higher Nature's Æterna Gold Collagen Crème Serum has been specially created to give skin back its bounce. With marine collagen extract, aloe vera leaf juice, sweet almond oil and vitamins E and B5, this creme serum is ideally to be used as a night moisturiser for  optimal results. Used regularly it helps fight signs of ageing such as wrinkles, fine lines and reduced elasticity. A lovely product to keep the skin hydrated and radiant. 50ml is priced at £29.75 and lasts around 2 months making it very good value for money as well.

Higher Nature Ultimate Aloe Skin Gel


Made from organically gown aloe vera, this skin gel doesn’t contain any added water or diluents. It is instead a triple concentrate made using the pure, whole leaf for maximum efficacy. It is ideal for soothing skin as a post-shave balm, offers relief from sunburn, skin irritation and soreness, can be used as a muscle rub too. I have used it as a facial gel and find that is absorbs well leaving the skin soft and hydrated. According to Higher Nature, you can also use it as a scalp treatment which I haven't tried yet. 75ml is priced at £15.90 and lasts around 2 months dependant on your usage.

Both the above products are available to buy from www.highernature.co.uk

Hempz Age Defying Body Wash


Hempz Age Defying Body Wash
Hempz Beauty are a division of JK Health and Beauty Technologies, a group that has been at the forefront of tanning in Europe for over 30 years. Hempz Beauty now also offers a range of natural products that are derived from 100% organic Hemp Seed Oil. All of their products are paraben-free, gluten-free and are not tested on animals.

Featured in this guide is the Hempz Herbal Age Defying Body Wash that contains ultra-mild cleansers that restore softness and smoothness to skin without stripping away natural moisture and oil. The body wash is a blend of pure, natural Hemp Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Ginseng and natural extracts (to help soothe and condition skin) and Vitamins A, C and E help protect skin from natural and environmentally triggered oxidants. The other key ingredients are anti-ageing blend of Polypeptides, Caffeine, and Algae Extract that, according to Hempz, helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to help leave skin looking smoother and more toned. The body wash has a lovely Vanilla & Musk fragrance that I love. A 250ml tube is priced at £16.99 and can be purchased online from www.hempzbeauty.com

Fresh Rose Face Mask


Fresh Rose Face Mask
This may sound cheesy but the Fresh rose face mask leaves your skin feeling really fresh! This is the first product I have tried from Fresh and I loved it. The mask has a unique gel formula that is infused with real rose petals and pure rosewater that helps hydrate and tone the complexion. The key ingredients in the mask include pure rosewater, cucumber extract, aloe vera gel, Porphyridium cruentum (a 'smart' algae) and antioxidant-rich green tea. It's gentle and has a soothing, relaxing effect when applied on skin. The fragrance is lovely and it leaves the skin soft and hydrated. This would make a lovely gift for a mom who appreciates a bit of luxury!

Priced at £52.00 for a 100ml tub, the rose face mask is available to buy from www.johnlewis.com

Peter Thomas Roth Gold Hydra Gel Eye Mask


Peter Thomas Roth Gold Hydra Gel Eye Mask

Another luxurious skincare gift would be the Peter Thomas Roth Gold Hydra Gel Eye Mask. Harnessing the power of pure 24K Gold and Colloidal Gold, this luxurious eye treatment infuses the delicate skin around the eyes with nutrients and humectants delivering an intensively hydrating and lifting effect. It helps make less severe any fine lines and/or puffiness around the eyes, leaving the under eye area smooth and soft. It is a fab product. Expensive, yes. But, incredible and definitely worth the price.

30 x Eye Patch Pairs are priced at £60.00 and can be ordered online from www.lookfantastic.com Look Fantastic offer free standard delivery on all orders.
