Description:

A wonderful gift for any woman who wishes to have a pamper night in. Light the Sweet Mandarin Candle, Massage the Exfoliating Facial Polish into the skin and relax in the bath. Wash off the exfoliant after a few minutes. Blossoms Body oil can be dropped into the bath or massaged in after wards. The Oils of Jasmine, Neroli and Ylang ylang blossoms are wonderfully girlie and deliciously aromatic to embrace the femininity.

Description:

We love to massage this gorgeous deep cleansing exfoliant into the skin and let it work its magic! A light volcanic lava pumice is combined with the wonderfully feminine essential oils of Neroli, YlangYlang and Jasmine. Creamed coconut oil and aloe vera extract nourish and protect the skin. The Essential oils soothe dryness leaving the skin silky smooth. Skin is left feeling cleansed with a polished glow. Use along-side Love Your Skin Cleansing Cream and before toning and moisturising with Love Your Skin Floral Toner and any of Holos Face Creams.

Ingredients

Aqua (Water), Caprylic/capric trilyceride, Glyceryl stearate, Glycerin (Veg), Cocos nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Cetyl alcohol, Pumice (Ground) powder, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, PEG-100 stearate, Jasminum officinale (Jasmine) Flower extract, Cananga odorata (Ylang Ylang) Flower oil, Carbomer, Citrus aurantium (Neroli) Flower Oil, Tocopheryl acetate (Vitamin E), Sodium hydroxide, Aloe barbadensis Leaf juice Powder, Linalool*, Limoneme*, BenzylSalicylate, BenzylBenzoate* *Naturally occurring components of essential oils

My thoughts:

I absolutely love treating myself to luxury products, massaging this gorgeous deep cleansing exfoliant into my skin and leaving it to work feels so revitalising.  In the past I had frequent professional  microdermabrasions skin treatments and this feels exactly the same without the harsh crystal particles or leaving your skin red and raw.

Description:

It is flowers in a bottle!  This sumptuous blend is wonderfully feminine and helps to restore balance to the skin and overall wellbeing. Neroli and jasmine soothe dry skin; neroli decreases the appearance of stretch marks and thread veins while jasmine works excellently on scar tissue. Ylang ylang balances the sebum in the skin keeping skin smooth and soft. The flower blossoms complement each other well and based on aroma alone bring a smile to your face.

Ingredients:

Prunus amygdalus dulcis (Sweet Almond) oil, Jasminum officinale (Jasmine)Flower extract, Cananga odorata (Ylang Ylang) Flower oil, Citrus aurantium (Neroli) Flower Oil, Tocopheryl acetate (Vitamin E), Citral*, Geraniol*, Farnesol*, Linalool*, Limonene*, BenzylAlcohol*, Eugenol*,Isoeugenol*, BenzylSalicylate*, BenzylBenzoate* *Naturally occurring components of essential oils

My thoughts:

The flower blossoms complement each other so well, I love the fact that the whole Blossoms range is mild and light; not overpowering at all.  Ylang ylang balances the sebum in the skin keeping it smooth and soft, which I found worked a treat on my combination skin. Sometimes we make the terrible mistake of dehydrating combination skin just because we want a non-greasy matte appearance.

This sumptuous blend is so gentle and soothing that I use it after waxing.

Description:

Soy Wax Candle scented with mandarin essential oil.  It is 100% natural and has a lead free wick.  16-18 hour burn time

My thoughts:

Citrus scents are my absolute favourite, and the only ones I purchase.  I’m certain that once you’ve tried soy candles, you’ll never go back to normal candles again.

My pampering ritual:

Make sure the children have fallen asleep. And switch your phone/s off / or put on silent; preferably out of reach. (trust me!)

  • light the Sweet Mandarin Candle
  • fill the bath and add 2-3 capfuls of the Blossoms body oil
  • Massage the light exfoliating skin polish into the skin and relax in the bath
  • Enjoy the wonderful aroma of the sumptuous oil blend
  • Wash off the exfoliant
  • pat dry and re-apply a generous amount of the blossoms body oil from top to toe.

This pampering trio is a perfect gift for a night in or a nurturing treat for a new mum.

As well as taking care of your skin, their chosen oils help promote both your physical and mental wellbeing (which is probably why I absolutely love them – keeps me sane)
