Lena from Soaps Naturally recently got in touch asking if I'd be happy to review a few of her products. Soaps Naturally is based in Glasgow and you can see the website here.
The soaps are free from Petrochemicals, Parabens, BHT, PEGs, Silicones, EDTA and soaps in the Pure Nature range do not include any synthetic fragrances or colours.
I was sent White Rose Soap*, Cranberry Mix Soap* and Chocolate Kiss Body Balm* to review. The soaps and balm are wrapped in pretty paper with full ingredients on the label on the back of the soap.
White Rose Soap* this soap is from the Pure Nature range - which uses shea butter, sweet almond oil, goat's milk, olive oil, coconut oil and organic herbs.
With 20% sweet almond oil it is made using traditional soap-making methods. Free from any synthetic enhancers. The soap has a light scent (I'd probably prefer it to smell more strongly of rose) but it is nice to use and gentle on the skin. Retails at £3.49 for a 115g bar.
Cranberry Mix Soap* from the Bio Soaps range - made with botanical extracts and natural ingredients which are 70% organic. With cranberry and aloe extracts, sweet almond oil, cocoa oil and plant glycerine. This multi-coloured soap is gorgeous! It totally scents out the whole of my bathroom and is lovely to use. Retails at £3.49 for 100g.
The third item I was sent was Chocolate Kiss Body Balm* which contains shea butter, sweet almond oil, grapefruit seed oil, beeswax, cocoa butter and chocolate! A solid hand made highly concentrated balm which is supermoisturising on the skin and sweetly scented. Suitable for all skin types. It retails at £3.69 for 80g. To use break a piece off and massage it into the skin.
The body balm is wrapped in paper like the soaps. It had melted quite a bit so I decanted it into a pot. Rich and delicious - my dry patches of skin and lips loved it!
My favourite from the three was the Cranberry Mix Soap from the BIO Soaps range.
