Try Me Beautiful! 100% Natural Organic Moisturising Argan Oil

Tan-Arganic-Oil-Arganic

Having been slightly disappointed by the inclusion of silicones in the Argania Moroccan Argan Oil I was delighted that one of my next sachets out the Try Me Beautiful bag was a 100% Natural Organic Moisturising Dry Oil – Oil Arganic from Tan Organic. Unlike Argania, this oil is not just for hair but is a multi-purpose product suitable for use on face, body, hair, …

Try Me Beautiful : Argania Moroccan Hair Oil

Argania-Moroccan-Hair-Oil

When I read the front of this sachet – “hair treatment made with certified organic Moroccan argan oil” I was really excited to try the contents. “Discover instant silk smoothness and shine with ust a few drops, antioxidant-rich with naturally based ingredients.” Whilst this is true for the bottom half of the ingredients list, I was disappointed at the inclusion of silicone ingredients for two …

Try Me, Beautiful! Ancienne Ambiance – Goddess Argan Oil

Ancienne-Ambiance-Goddess-Argan-Oil

Ancienne Ambiance won Best Soap Bar in the Biteable Beauty Best Of Awards 2013. With this in mind, I was incredibly keen to try Goddess Argan Oil from them. It’s made using a high grade organic Argan Oil. One of my favourite oils, Argan is rich in natural Vitamin E, an important anti-ageing and antioxidant-rich oil. It’s also rich in Squalene, a component found naturally …

Try Me, Beautiful! Lycon Spa Essentials Ingrown-X-It Solution

lycon-x-it-solution-ingrown-hair

I’m not really sure where I picked up this trial-sized product, although I have a feeling it was Professional Beauty. So, once I’m off the boat I’ll have to check the full ingredients list, for now though I can see the key active ingredients are the following natural ingredients- Salicylic Acid and Lactic Acid – these help to clear hair follicles and treat ingrown hairs …

Try Me, Beautiful! Redmond Earthpaste

Try-Me,-Beautiful!-Remond-Earthpaste

I’m always on the lookout for clean and natural toothpastes that still taste good. Mainly because Vitacare Pomegranate Mint Whitening Toothpaste, our oral care of preference in the BB house, is £5.99 a tube and rather on the small side when compared to other toothpastes of the same price. It does taste incredible though so it doesn’t pain me too much to part with so …

Try Me, Beautiful! SURYA Brasil SAPIEN women Facial Scrub with Coconut Bark and Organic Buriti

Surya-Brasil-Sapien-Women-Facial-Scrub

This is another sample I picked up at Biofach/Vivaness from SURYA Brasil, and the second one I tried. Read my review of their Amazonia Preciosa Buriti Shampoo and Conditioner here. This is a gentle but highly effective facial scrub, with a deliciously fruity summer holiday aroma which was a little out of place on our Arctic Circle cruise but very welcome nonetheless! In appearance, the …

Anti-Age Me : Pai Echium & Amaranth Age Confidence Face Oil

Pai-Skincare-Age-Confidence-Facial-Oil-Echium-&-Amaranth

Pai Echium & Amaranth Age Confidence Facial Oil has been on my to try list for a while now. That and a whole other bunch of Pai products, for I haven’t tried as much of their skincare as I should have done – I love what I have experienced! The Soil Association very kindly sent me an organic hamper for Organic September which I am gradually working …

Anti-Age Me : Organic Natralox Anti-Wrinkle Cream

Organic-Natralox

Organic Natralox is an Australian product which has been making ripples in the natural beauty world by erradicating ripples on the skin of beauty journalists and afficionados alike. I know my gorgeous friend Miss Eco Glam is a fan, and I have to say that after one (extremely long-lasting) bottle later I am hooked. The key ingredient in Organic Natralox which makes the product have …
