I started shopping at Beauty Naturals long before I became a beauty blogger. It's a great online shop stuffed full of interesting beauty products as well as green home products. You can also order via the catalogue paying by cheque. You can order a catalogue here. Standard delivery is free in the UK.
Beauty Naturals is a family run business which was started by their late grandmother, Martha Hill. She introduced her effective and cruelty free products over 40 years ago. Own brands include - Martha Hill, Skin Revivals, David Hill, Purely Hair Care and Herbs for Health. You can see these here. There is no animal testing and the own brands are made in the UK. You can see full ingredients lists for each product on the website.
Other brands available to buy include Amie, Badger, Konjac, Steam Cream, Organic Surge, Orly, Burt's Bees, Dr Bronner's and Jason, to name a few.
If you introduce family and friends to Beauty Naturals and they place an order Beauty Naturals will give you a £5 gift voucher. You can join The Martha Hill Beauty Club which costs £15 for a year's membership. When you join you chose a "club product" and every time you buy it during your year's membership you get it half price. Members also get 10% off each order and can collect beauty points.
Beauty Naturals very kindly sent me their Skin Revivals Smoothing Sugar Cleanser* (50ml - £11.50) after spotting it in Week 1 of my #NoBuyJanuary Weekly Wants List. This product received a Highly Commended Award in the Natural Health Beauty Awards last year. It is free from artificial colour, perfume, primary petro-chemicals and parabens.
The first thing I noticed was how beautiful the cleanser smells when I opened the pot - it contains mandarin orange, lemon and apple geranium oils along with Sweet Almond oil, Olive butter and Beeswax. It also contains refined sugar crystals which exfoliate as you cleanse.
Apply the cleanser to wet skin and the "buttery oil turns to a silky lotion". Gently massage the cleanser into the skin and the sugar crystals will gently exfoliate leaving my skin soft, radiant, smooth and glowy. Remove with a warm damp muslin cloth. Great for skin which is dry, dull or congested. Use once or twice a week.
