Adore Naturals.


The fewer ingredients a product has, the more excited I find myself these days... So when I was introduced to the lovely Adore Naturals website a few weeks ago I was over the moon! Adore Naturals is a online natural beauty boutique focused on selling all UK made skincare, bodycare and home fragrance. More often that not the products are handmade which I love, the idea of cooking up some skincare in the kitchen sounds right up my street! Most of the brands on the site I had never heard of so I got lost for a good while reading up on all the new brands!
I was lucky enough to be asked if I would like to review a few things and well... I wasn't about to say no! would you??

First up I chose the Aloe Vera Moisturiser* from B Skincare which is a very reasonable £8.00 for 60mls!! I'm incredibly picky when it comes to moisturisers and I am yet to find 'the one' but this is now definitely in my top 5! Made up of just a few simple ingredients this is perfect for irritated, inflamed, sensitive, broken out, dry or combination skin (basically everyone as it's just so simple and gentle). At first I didn't like this as I applied far too much and it just didn't sink in at all but I came back to it a few days later as I needed something basic to moisturise without aggravating my skin. Applied very sparingly and massaged in this has been perfect for my irritated skin recently.
I also have to point out that as a sucker for lovely packaging the sleek glass pot makes it seem a lot more expensive than it actually is.

Ingredients:
Aqua, Aloe vera, Helianthus annus (sunflower oil), Cetearyl alcohol, Prunus amygdalus (almond oil), Glycerine, Cera alba (bees wax), Rosa Centafolia (rose), Dehydroacetic acid, benzyl alcohol


I also picked out a beautiful cleansing cream from Freyaluna. The Skin Support Cleansing Cream* is suitable for all skin types and again, made up from simple but effective all natural ingredients. The cream itself is very rich and thick, almost like butter and melts upon contact with skin to become quite oily, melting away makeup with ease, this feels really luxurious and is good for giving yourself a good facial massage. I don't find this to leave a residue on my skin but I normally only use creamy cleansers to remove my makeup, and use something lighter as a secondary cleanse. My favourite part about this cleanser? It costs £11.95. For something that is homemade, using high quality natural ingredients and is actually kind to your skin without any nasties you definitely can't go wrong. I would choose this over any "drugstore" brand time and time again. I am really intrigued with Freyaluna now and really want to explore more of the brand, as well as B Skincare! 

Ingredients:
Vitis vinifera (grapeseed) oil, Prunus amygdalus dulcis (almond) oil, Rosewater, Cera alba, Sodium bicarbonate, Lavandula angustifolia, Rosa gallica, Chamomillis vulgaris.

Adore Naturals is currently offering 20% off at the moment with the codes ADOREWINTER or AD220, so definitely go and have a nosy as there are some wonderful hidden gems.
