a beautiful world - online beauty boutique

a beautiful world. was founded by Liz McCarthy on 1 May 2013.  An online beauty boutique which sells hard to find beauty products.  They are all high end, organic and natural brands - some of which are exclusives. The most exciting thing - most are brands I've never heard of!

Liz's first job was as a beauty consultant for No.7 and after graduating from University she spent 16 years working in International Beauty Marketing before starting her own Advertising Agency - which among others dealt with famous campaigns such as Simple Skincare.  In 2011 she was listed in Management Today's 35 under 35 which celebrates high achieving women in business.

In 2012 Liz closed her agency and set up a beautiful world. which was a lifelong dream.  Liz and her team have scoured the globe looking for interesting and new brands to bring to the UK market.

There is a beauty box which is available twice a year (the summer one sold out very quickly).  See Ria's review here.  I've signed up to be one of the first to hear about the autumn/winter sampler.

I have been sent some gorgeous products to review - and all from brands I've never heard of!








Opale Lumiere d'Opale* (£29 - 50ml) - this hails from Monaco and is a huge hit on the Cote d'Azure.  A glorious shimmering oil which enhances a suntan and eliminates dead skin cells while activating the production of new ones.  Made with 100% natural ingredients it contains Macadamia Nut oil, Sesame oil, natural AHAs and is scented with citrus oils of lemon and lime - it smells simply gorgeous!  It also helps prolong your suntan as well as moisturising the skin.  Get more information here.





Soleil Organique Sunblock Mist SPF45* (£24 - 120ml) - a high performance organic sun protection which works.  A water resistant light spray which is easily absorbed into the skin leaving it protected and moisturised.  The purest ingredients are combined with advanced skincare technology.  It protects and cares for the skin.  Non-greasy, a light lotion which is suitable for the face and body.  It contains no chemicals and is suitable for sensitive skin.  It contains non penetrative mineral filter, red algae, Vitamin E & C, Ester and Bisabolol which protect against UVA and UVB rays. A Certified Organic product which contains no parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, propylene glycol, sulphates, animal ingredients or synthetic colours and fragrances.  A full review to follow when I've tested it out.  Read more about the brand here.

Chocolate Sun Cocoa Lite Enhancer sample size* - this product comes from Santa Monica, LA and is an all natural organic fake tan.  It is packed full of Aloe, Coconut Oil, Shea butter, Sweet Almond Oil which moisturises the skin. Beets give the light sunkissed colour.  It also contains antioxidants from green tea and cocoa bean extracts which help perfect a light tan.  Suitable for fair to medium skin tones.  Takes 5 hours to develop and should be used every day to build up a lightly bronzed look.  Looking forward to trying this!  See more here.

Naisture Collagen Mask Pack* (single use) - I simply adore paper masks. This come from Korea and is drenched in collagen which moisturises and firm your skin.  Apply the mask to the skin and leave on for 15 minutes and then remove, massaging any residue into the skin. Again looking forward to trying!  See more info here.
