A few days ago we looked at part 1 of my Top 6 Welsh Brands, and here is part 2!
My, my, my Delilah…
Lulu and Boo here
Shown: Vanilla Sugar Body Scrub, £33; Frankincense Regeneration Serum, £33.60; Mandarin and Almond Bath & Body Oil, £20.90
Lulu & Boo Organics is described as is a natural, organic skincare company. It was founded in 2010 in Cardiff, Wales.
Unlike some other brands, which are mostly body/hair/fragrance, Lulu & Boo offer a wide variety of face products. And there are also some luxurious treats for mums-to-be and their babies.
During the lock down, I’ve decided to research some smaller/independent British brands, and get some things from them. So today I want to share the results with you, and I will start with the Welsh brands. I have chosen 6 to feature. And there will be 2 parts, as, otherwise, the posts would be too long.
So get yourself a cup of Glengettie, stick on Tom Jones (sex bomb, sex bomb, you’re my seeeex boooom ) and have a read.
Catherine Zeta-Jones would approve!

The Good Wash Company website
This is quite a new brand founded just in 2018 in Barry by Mandy Powell, an ex Welsh International Hockey and Touch Rugby Player and Kelly Davies, a former Wales and Professional Footballer.
Shown: Soap £6.50; Good Bath Oil, £9.50; Glân Hand Sanitiser, £5; Luxury Soy Wax Candle, £17
Not only it looks super chic and high end, and ‘totally lysh’ (lush in English), as the ladies describe it but the brand also supports some good causes. You can read more about them here. The aim of the brand, according to the founders was to create a “luxury Welsh brand with a humble social conscience”.
This brand feels like a child of Aesop/Grown Alchemist and Le Labo (packaging wise) but for like half of the price.

Aqua di Parma and La Doublej collaboration looks like summer in a tube. Possibly the second best thing to going to Italy?

Today I want to share about one of my favourite skincare products. And it’s Anne Semonin Precious Serum. I have featured it ages ago on my Instagram, and have already used it all up.
If you are a new reader, I am in my 30s and have very dry skin.
Before we start, I have to mention that this serum is very expensive, at almost €125 price tag. But I’ve got it during a promotion, and I’ve just noticed that there is one now, too. You can get it for €87.40 from the website.
Anne Semonin promise that this serum (which was more like an oil to me) will revitalize and detoxify fatigued, lifeless skin. Make it glow, hydrate, nourish and make it more smooth. I mean, all brands promise this but in case of the Precious Serum, I could definitely see all of that.
I loved the

Every woman is beautiful in her own way, with or without makeup. While using makeup depends on one’s preference, it has become an essential need for the majority.
