Alteya Certified Organic Bulgarian Rose Water Spray 100ml

It was nice to see a product from Alteya featured this month.  Earlier this month I reviewed their Rose Otto face care duo

I love using rosewater as part of my skincare ritual.  I personally like to store mine in the fridge as we’ve had some really hot days.  I love how wonderfully cooling it feels, it also helps to calm, soothe and hydrate my skin.  Great size to pop into my bag to refresh my skin on the go.  I also like to add it to mix my powder masks.  It gives it that extra oomph.

PHB Ethical Beauty Anti-aging Eye Gel with Organic Argan & Rock Rose 15ml

Another great eye gel from PHB Ethical Beauty.  I’ve used their Brightening eye gel which worked well for me.  This firming one has a similar light, silky texture which absorbs quickly without any sticky or greasy residue.

It smells lovely and feels refreshing on the skin.  It nourishes and brightens my eye area and doesn’t cause any irritation.

An unfragranced balm made with pure plant oils, beeswax, home grown herbs and nothing else.

Safely soothes, softens, repairs and improves skin’s elasticity from top to toe.

Lyonsleaf CALENDULA AND MARSHMALLOW BALM

  • Softens heels, elbows, rough working hands, gardeners hands and hard skin on feet

  • Improves sore nipples when nursing (no need to wash off before feeding baby)
  • Improves skins elasticity. Use during pregnancy to prevent the appearance of stretch marks.
  • Unfragranced, suitable for infants and those with very sensitive skin.

Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil*, Orbignya Oleifera (Babassu) Oil*, Cera Alba (Beeswax)*,  Borago Officinalis (Borage) Oil**, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil*, Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Oil**, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Calendula Officinalis (Marigold) Flower Extract, Althaea Officinalis (Marshmallow) Root Extract.
*Organic / Wild Harvest (94%) **Cold Pressed

I’m a huge fan of Lyonsleaf and have enjoyed every product I’ve tried.  This is another fantastic multi-purpose balm.  I love the texture and how it melts on contact.  It is potent and packed with amazing healing ingredients so use sparingly.

Calendula is well known and has been used traditionally to soothe inflammation and promote healing.  Marshmallow is an amazing emollient, it repairs and softens the driest, roughest, cracked or chapped skin.

It is super soothing and nourishing on my kids eczema patches.  I also like to use it as a night cream to repair and protect my skin.  Say goodbye to dry elbows and heels, chapped lips as this works well as a treatment balm.
