There are people that love rose scent and those who hate it. As for myself, I LOVE it! This is why I really wanted to try Lavera Organic Wild Rose Bath Oil ever since I saw Ruth’s aka A Model Recommends post about it.
I have finally got it last month and it is really, really lovely.
As you know, I have very dry skin and this product, which contains organic oils from soy, almonds, jojoba and sunflowers, organic wild rose oil and pure vitamin E, leaves the skin moisturized and nourished but it doesn’t feel greasy.
Since my skin is
I really liked this post at Modesty Brown about Jane’s shower essentials, so I thought I’d show you what I have been using this week. I have tones of products for bath/shower as I love variety but I’ve narrowed them down to seven.
Can you guess what brands I have been loving lately? 😉
1. Cowshed Cowlick Gentle Shampoo
This shampoo smells absolutely amazing (lemon & ylang ylang) and it does leave my hair clean and shiny, however it gets greasy faster than I would like. Maybe it suits people with dryer hair better?
2. Philip Kingsley Elastisizer
This is a cult product and I have finally decided to try it! I have used it only three times but so far, so good. Will let you know my thoughts about it later.
3. Cowshed Lazy Cow Soothing Bath and Body Oil
This is a great multi-porpoise product as it can be used as a bath oil and body oil. It does make the skin softer and smells great. I have got it to treat myself and am happy with my purchase, as it is a truly luxurious product. Expect a post about it in the future!
4. Cowshed Knackered Cow Soap
Maybe not the most attractive photo as it is properly used, but I am in love with these Cowshed soap I have got some time ago. I actually plan to try all the others (there are three more) from the range. They don’t dry out my skin but leave it clean, would
Although I made several posts about Lush already I never really shared my opinion. I also never shared my opinion about any MAC products because there are already TOO MANY reviews about these brands. But I guess it’s time to brake the rules and bring you some reviews about Lush and MAC Cosmetics (in the future).
Do you want to know what I got?
This time I’ve got only 5 products because I want to visit Lush again very soon. I’ve already made the list of what to get 😉
I got :
1. Mmm Melting Marshmallow Moment £3.50
Slow melting musky marshmallow marvel. MMM melts into a pink, fluffy waterbed of marshmallow and moisturizing cocoa butter. Each Melting Marshmallow Moment is made with marshmallow herb, which produces a sweet, skin-soothing mucilage that was used to make sugar candies for hundreds of years, and marigold, which is equally calming for your skin. Take your time, savour each moment and have as many marshmallows as you like.
Jasmine, clary sage and ylang ylang to make you feel like a love goddess. The power of these aphrodisiac oils lies in their ability to relax you at the same time as warming your heart and other body parts. The ancient perfumers of the Mediterranean knew a thing or two about lurve and we’re using the methods they used thousands of years ago for the same results. Whether you want to be calm for a big night out or a quiet night in, prepare to detonate a Sex Bomb.
3.Dreamtime Bath Melt, £2.90
Skin softening, soothing and sleep-inducing melt. Guess when you should drop this luxuriously creamy block into the water? Bedtime! It may look small, but its secret strengths lie in its scent. The Dreamtime causes your worries to fade away with jasmine, lavender calms your head and sandalwood relaxes your limbs, so use it whenever you need a good night’s sleep, soft skin and sweet dreams.
4. Wee Harry, £2.95 with one eye, lol
Elf and safety warming! A warm, spicy bubble bath inspired by warm, spicy Scandinavian drinks. (And elves.) When you visit a Luh shop, you’ll notice that Wee Harry has a diffrent name, but don’t worry: he’s still the same Christmas elf. We realised that every culture has its yuletide elf named different.
5. Sea Vegetable,£2.75
A refreshing splash in the ocean. Sea Vegetable is made with seaweed, one of our favourite ingredients, with a crust of stimulating sea salt to give your body a good scrub down. It smells of lime, lavender and seaweed, a bit like sitting at the beach next to someone applying suntan lotion. This is a great soap for sharing amongst the whole household. The scent is perfectly balanced for boys and girls everywhere.
My impression and some more photos 😉
I never used soaps, always shower gels or, even better shower creams, in the past. The thing is that I have very dry skin and soaps used to dry it out completely and leave it flaky and tight. This changed when I have tried L’Occitane soaps…
Now I have a completely different opinion. I am eagerly trying new soaps but I choose very carefully what brands to get. You have probably seen that I have got this set from Cowshed. It comes in a beautiful box which would make a great present actually. You get three soaps inside from three different ranges which gives you a nice idea about Cowshed in general, too.
Knackered Cow ‘Burnt out? Slow down and de-stress with essential oils of lavender to restore harmony and eucalyptus to ease tired muscles.’
Lazy Cow ‘Soothing Collection – Be left in peace with essential oils of jasmine to deeply relax, chamomile to calm, and sandalwood to aid contemplation.’
Grumpy Cow ‘Feeling low? Rediscover your zest for life with essential oils of mandarin red to invigorate the senses, petitgrain to cleanse and purify, and grapefruit to stimulate circulation.’ Each soap is 160g and is made from 100% organic palm and coconut oils and triple milled for a ‘dense and luxurious texture. ‘
Cowshed soaps smell
Oils are a necessity for me, beauty-wise, especially in AW period. My skin is very dry, and during the cold months it is flaky and sore. And I do love my daily hot shower which dries out the skin even more. But I just can’t help it. The relaxing and anti-stress effect [of a hot shower] is very important for me.
This is why I’ve decided to get some shower oils. I have started with Yves Rocher Oriental Shower Oil .
And it is really lovely indeed. It has a subtle oriental scent, as the name suggests. The way it looks and smells – it reminds me of honey. My favourite way of using it is to apply to the skin directly. It turns into milk when contacted with water, and leaves the skin smelling divine, and feeling softer and more moisturized than after a regular gel. I still
