This is a familiar hand cream, I received it in a previous box years ago. The consistency is nice and creamy and it absorbs well without leaving my hands greasy. My hands feels silky soft and smooth.
It has a lovely floral scent but I find it slightly overpowering for my taste.
100% Organic Prunus domestic seed oil
This is the latest product from Ooh! and I have to say it is pretty special! Plum oil is packed full of antioxidants, vitamins, and fatty acids.
It is a lightweight oil, absorbs effortlessly and won’t just sit on your skin. It deeply moisturises the skin without leaving a greasy residue behind.
The added bonus is it smells SO good. It has a delicious almond, marzipan scent that smells good enough to eat!
Plum oil is very versatile and an excellent multi-tasker. Here are the ways I use it:
- Night oil treatment – apply to damp skin after cleansing to nourish the skin and lock in moisture. It leaves my skin soft, hydrated, plump and glowing.
- Makeup primer – it sinks it and hydrates the skin before applying foundation. You can also add 1-2 drops into your foundation. My makeup is nice and dewy.
- Lip treatment – apply a small amount to lips to soften and nourish dry lips.
- Cuticle treatment – apply a small amount to condition nails and cuticles.
- Hair treatment – massage into scalp as a pre-shampoo treatment. I also apply a small amount to dry hair and it leaves my hair silky soft, shiny and smooth.

I’ve had a few mishaps with natural deodorants, not all of them work for me. Sore, irritated armpits are painful and uncomfortable.
Elsa’s is a great brand, her range of deodorants are gentle and really effective.
This detox deodorant has a lovely fresh, citrus scent that lingers. It is easy to apply, a little goes a long way as the formula is concentrated. The formula is effective at absorbing wetness and neutralising odours. I was really pleased how well it worked even on hot days and after lots of activities.
No unpleasant odours at the end of the day. That’s a sure winner for me!

I was really happy to see a Kathleen Natural product I haven’t tried. You can never go wrong with her products.
I always enjoy using her Sensual rose and Tranquil fields bubble bath and shower gels. Citrus cheer is perfect to awaken the senses and kickstart the day. Lemon essential oil with its bright, citrus aroma helps lift the mood. Rosewood essential oil with its sweet, fruity, woody aroma lifts the spirits and balances the emotions. Geranium essential oil with its sweet, floral scent is uplifting , helps to relieve stress, anxiety and tension.
It lathers well as a shower gel, gently cleanses the skin and leaves it soft and beautifully scented. I love that it doubles as a bubble bath when I want to unwind in a soothing bath after a long day.
Another great box this month. Thanks LoveLula!
Until next time,
