Alteya Certified Organic Stretch Mark Oil - Review*

Alteya Organics is a fast-growing and a multiple international award-winning family-owned USDA and NaTrue certified organic beauty and skincare company with our own rose and lavender fields, distillery and a state-of-the-art skincare manufacturing facility in the heart of The Rose Valley in Bulgaria. We grow and harvest roses, lavender, chamomile and calendula and we distil premium quality certified organic rose oil and other essential oils and flower waters using generations-old recipes.

Our Organic Stretch Mark Oil is a premium blend of plant-based oils, butter and organic Bulgarian Rose Oil, that may help against stretch marks, and keep skin nourished, soft and beautiful. Relieves dry, itchy skin and significantly improves elasticity.

Rather than using the same body product all over, I like to use products that are designed for certain areas. I was looking for a new product to hydrate the stretch marks that I have on my bottom. I ended up choosing the Alteya Certified Organic Stretch Mark Oil from Love Lula, as I haven't used an oil-based product for a while. The oil smells sweet and rubs in nicely, leaving my skin feeling soft after use.

Bloomtown The Rose Garden Organic Hand & Body Wash - Review*

Inspired by the woods, gardens, groves and other charming nooks of our ideal green community, where every ingredient is nourishing and sustainable. Bloomtown was founded in 2016 by husband and wife team Preyanka Clark Prakash and Medwin Culmer after spending two years in Indonesia and witnessing first-hand the loss of virgin forest that is home to endangered orangutans, tigers and so much of the world's biodiversity. Bloomtown is proud to be the UK's first independently certified palm oil-free company, offering beautifully scented, expertly formulated body & skincare, hand-crafted in Cornwall.

Certified vegan, cruelty-free & palm oil-free. We're proud to offer one of the few truly palm-free liquid soaps on the market. Our natural, organic Hand & Body Wash is 100% free from SLSs, parabens and synthetic detergents! Gently cleansing, beautifully scented and packaged in elegant, eco-friendly glass bottles. While away long summer days in Bloomtown's lush, rose-strewn gardens. This isn't your gran's rose scent, though she'll probably adore it, too. A gorgeous modern rose balanced with not-too-sweet white florals.

I originally ordered the Bloomtown The Rose Garden Organic Hand & Body Wash from Love Lula with intentions of using it as a body wash. With Rose being a favourite scent of mine I was looking forward to trying this product as a body wash more than a hand wash. When it came to using it in the shower I was a little worried about the bottle being glass. I took extra care in the shower and because of this, I'd prefer to use it as a hand wash. I also wasn't sure about using this product as a body wash as it feels like you've washed with a bar of soap, which I personally don't like. The soap itself smells lovely and fresh and lathers up well on both hands and the body.

JOIK Organic Pink Grapefruit Body Lotion - Review*

JOIK is natural luxury. All the goodness from nature combined with luxurious emotions of scent and colour. Using nature to our best advantage, but also caring for nature. JOIK is Northern, pure and minimal style. All products are hand made in Estonia in small batches using only the finest ingredients to ensure high quality and ultimate pampering. All products are formulated to be skin-friendly, free of parabens, petrochemicals, sulphates, other harmful ingredients and are not tested on animals.

Pink grapefruit body lotion absorbs instantly, provides quick but longlasting moisture and leaves skin soft and silky. The lotion is rich in organic cocoa butter, coconut oil, safflower oil and sunflower oil that relieve dry dehydrated skin, protect skin from moisture loss and help it to renew and maintain its elasticity. Organic aloe juice calms, while natural Vitamin E helps to prevent premature aging of the skin. Scented with a naturally fresh and bitter-sweet pink grapefruit scent.

With the warmer weather approaching, I was on the hunt for a more summery scented body lotion. I came across the JOIK Organic Pink Grapefruit Body Lotion on Love Lula and added it to my basket right away. With a summery scent being the main factor of my search, I'm happy to say that this body lotion absolutely ticks that box. It smells lovely and is exactly what I was looking for, for this time of year. The lotion applies well and rubs in nicely, leaving my skin feeling soft and smelling lovely!

Unfragranced Yes Cleanse Intimate Wash - Review*

The idea that started The Yes Yes Company Ltd in 2003 arose between two friends, Susi Lennox and Sarah Brooks. Susi and Sarah's experience of working in the Drug Safety divisions of major pharmaceutical companies meant they were very aware of the health risks associated with certain synthetic, chemical ingredients. They set themselves the challenge of designing a range of intimacy products that would be completely benign, have no side effects, free of all known skin irritants and be highly effective.

YES CLEANSE - a sensitively formulated organic intimate wash, designed to respect the delicate vaginal ecology, with a refreshing and effective cleansing action. Traditional soaps and shower gels can disrupt the vaginal pH balance, causing irritation and discomfort. YES CLEANSE has been carefully pH matched to complement and protect the intimate environment. Washes away odour-causing bacteria without irritation. Economic foam pump producing soft gentle lather.

I've used the Unfragranced Yes Cleanse Intimate Wash from Love Lula for a few weeks now. I love that the product is a foam wash, as I feel it gives a more of a gentle wash. The wash itself is unfragranced which is great if you're wanting something plain to wash with. I find that the pump on the bottle is really easy to use in the shower, as there's no need to tip the bottle upside down! This is overall a good product that does exactly what it's meant to do.
