APPLE & BEARS – Luxury Bodycare

 

Apple & Bears

APPLE & BEARS is a family owned and operated, British company that produce luxury cosmetics made from the finest organic and natural ingredients.  Their formulas are created by a team of specialists dedicated in the field of natural and ecological products.

 

APPLE & BEARS started with a strikingly simple question, “Why don’t we make a truly good product, which helps make a difference to people’s lives?”

 

Our name is inspired by the qualities of nature that we admire. We chose “APPLE” for its healthy skin and the organic goodness within and “BEARS” for their ability to live in a natural rhythm without impacting their environment. The combination of APPLE & BEARS is a playful nod to our dedication to nature and a reminder that taking care of ourselves and our planet should be enjoyable.

 

Their products are manufactured in the UK creating local employment opportunities.

Apple & Bears is an official partner of Breast Cancer Care with their commitment to donate a portion of their profits to this very important cause.  Their bottles and packaging proudly display the Breast Cancer Ribbon.  With the sale of every bottle they donate 5% (including VAT) to the Breast Cancer Care charity, so when you buy a bottle, you can make a difference too.

  • Natural & Organic Ecocert Greenlife certified

I have enjoyed using each product in the collection. These handy 50ml sizes are a great way to try out the products and are also great for a weekend away or short break.

The body washes are rich, so a little goes a long way.  They have a gentle lather and leave my skin clean and soft without drying it out.

The body silks have a light, creamy and silky consistency.  I like to apply it on slightly damp skin.  My skin is super dry so I tend to like body butters and creams, however this light and non-greasy formula provides adequate hydration and leaves my skin soft and moisturised.

They also leave my skin delicately scented.

Grapefruit and seaweed has an uplifting citrus scent so I like to use this one when I’m in need of a pick-me-up.  I’m not much of a morning person so this helps transform my morning shower and wake me up!

Pomegranate & Aloe Vera has a delicious fruity scent and is my favourite as I love sweet scents.

Bergamot & Green Tea has a refreshing citrus scent and is also one I like to use when I need a pick-me-up.

Honey & Hemp is a lovely combination and has a soothing and earthy scent.  I like to use this in the evening as I find it relaxing.
