Wellgreen Lewes Sample Selection

I contacted Amanda a while ago to ask if I could try some sample sizes of a few of her products. I already adore the rose scented range - see my review HERE. We agreed a price and this is what she sent me - much nicer getting fresh home made beauty samples through the post than a box of choccies!




Here's what I received - Jasmine Body Butter, Orange Blossom Body Butter, Rose Face Cream, Orange & Calendula Salty Soap Scrub and Prickly Heat/Sunburn/Aftersun Balm (the latter is a special potion Amanda made for her daughter for taking on her travels - I used it over the hot summer months and it really does soothe places where you get prickly heat and sunburn).

Orange Blossom Body Butter
I'm already a huge fan of the Rose Body Butter having reviewed it here and here. This butter contains pure orange and neroli. It is heady and floral and evocative of the mediterranean. Amanda goes to Cyprus every May to distill the blossoms. The butter also contains shea butter, coconut and avocado oil and pure Vitamin E.  A lovely butter with a light orange blossom scent.

Jasmine Body Butter
A very lightly scented butter (my personal preference would be for a stronger scent).  Packed full of nourishing shea butter, coconut and avocado oils with Vitamin E and Jasmine Essential Oil.

The butters are best used after a bath or shower when the skin is still slightly warm.  Alternatively you can add half a teaspoon to a warm bath.  The butters are whipped for over 30 minutes to make them light and fluffy.

Salty-Soap Scrub
A body polish made with salt, to scrub, soap to clean and a few flowers which makes for a great bath time pamper.  I chose Orange & Calendula scent which is invigorating and fruity.  Contains sea salt, olive oil, orange & calendula soap, calendula petals and orange essential oil.  Great to use to awaken in my morning shower.

Rose Face Cream 
Face creams are freshly made and only keep for up to 6 weeks (longer if stored in the fridge).  The creams are made with Amanda's flower waters and as few other ingredients as possible.  Nourishing, calming and soothing with a light rose scent.

Aftersun/Prickly Heat/Sunburn
A balm Amanda made for her daughter to take on her travels. I always get prickly heat on my decolletage and this balm has worked wonders this summer. I'll definitely be placing an order for this wonder balm next time I'm going abroad on holiday.

Have you used any of these or any other Wellgreen Lewes products?
