Love Lula: Spotlight on MOA - Magic Organic Apothecary

MOA's natural skincare products are made in England and are "inspired by old herbal folklore with a sprinkling of magic".

The hero ingredient is the herb yarrow which is found beside hedgerows in the UK. Shrouded in tales of folklore it has been used for centuries to heal and repair.

Products come in green glass jars and amber bottles with cardboard packaging which are all recyclable. I just love the cute packaging. The range is 100% natural and free from parabens, perfume, alcohol and lanolin. Suitable for Vegetarians and there is no animal testing.

The first and original product in the range is the multi-purpose The Green Balm (50ml - £12.50)* (15ml - £4.99). It really can "do it all" and I'm a huge fan.

Yarrow soothes, heals and repairs while Tea Tree is antiseptic, Beeswax protects while Coconut, Sweet Almond and Soy Bean oils soften and nourish the skin.

The balm is suitable for all the family and even those with sensitive skins making it ideal for everyday use and holidays.

The Green Balm has a pleasant herbal scent and soothes dry itchy skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. It helps to heal cuts, bruises, grazes, blisters, burns, bites and stings.

Use it on chapped lips, to help heal coldsores, after shaving, when you have a cold either around your nostrils or adding a small amount to water before gargling (it's good to heal a sore throat!) as well as moisturising and deeply cleansing the skin. It really is a wonder product!

The Green Balm can also be used for a very pampering Daily Cleansing Ritual (£17.50)*. It's also an award winner - The Green Parent Natural Beauty Awards 2015 for Best Cleanser.

The bamboo cloth which comes in the cleansing ritual is made of bamboo fibre and is antibacterial and eco friendly.  It is super lush with a smooth side and a buffing side (and it turns cleansing into such a luxury ritual).

To use: take a small amount from the jar and warm it between your fingertips before massaging the oil over the face and neck. Steam the skin with the warmed cloth before buffing off the remaining balm. To finish the ritual, close the pores and tone place the cloth supersoft side down (dipped in cold water and rung out) onto the skin.

The Aphrodite Facial Oil (30ml - £20)* is a "magical blend" of nutrient rich Rosehip oil with aromatic Damask Rose and Rose Geranium essential oils (smells gorgeous) which rejuvenate, nourishes and balances while Yarrow evens the skin tone and Marshmallow extract soothes and calms.

To use: massage a few drops onto the face and neck AM and PM after cleansing. The oil absorbs instantly leaving the skin feeling nurtured and the skin looking glowy and healthy.

I've absolutely loved using the products as I found them very effective and great to use. I'm also a huge fan of their de-stressing Fortifying Green Bath Potion (100ml - £27.50) see my review HERE.

*I'm a member of Love Lula's Accredited Blogger Program (LLABP) and each month (starting from August 2016) I will receive 500 points (the equivalent to £50) to spend on products for review. Under the scheme I will also receive a monthly beauty box (from this month).

All views are my own genuine thoughts and I thank Love Lula very much for the opportunity.
