Lulu & Boo Organics review

Hi everyone. Today I am reviewing some gorgeous products from an organic brand Lulu & Boo Organics including: Jasmine & Vanilla Bath Oil, Vanilla Sugar Body Scrub, Fruits & Vitamins Brightening Mask, Echinacea and Tea Tree Gel and Baby Bottom Balm.

All their products are specially formulated with the finest certified organic essential oils and active plant extracts, are animal friendly and vegetarian or vegan. You will never find irritating chemicals such as Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS), Parabens or synthetic fragrances or colourants in Lulu & Boo products. The production methods used by the company are 100% environmentally friendly and the packaging is fully recyclable. The range includes skincare, bodycare, mother and baby products and gift boxes.

Jasmine and Vanilla Organic Bath Oil* 100ml £18.75 

"A sensuous bath of luxurious and exotic Jasmine, Orange, Ylang Ylang and Vanilla, on a base of Organic Almond & Apricot Oils that helps relax the mind as well as the body."

I love using bath oils! They always make my skin feel super soft and hydrated. This one smells absolutely beautiful and helps me to relax after a long day. I don't add a lot of it to the bath, 2-3 cupfuls is enough. It definitely makes the bath more indulgent and benefits my skin in many ways. I am really bad at moisturising my body, so using bath oils helps to keep my skin nourished and soft. I wasn't sure if I can use it in my jetted bathtub, but it safe to use if you clean the jets and the tub properly after each use. I also started using it in the shower once a week to lock the moisture in my skin, especially on my knees and elbows. It is a great product and it feels very luxurious.

"For Dry and Mature Skin. A rejuvenating, anti-ageing organic mask, packed full of fruit extracts rich in vitamins and minerals. With the Cell Regenerative properties of Rosehip Extract and Collagen Boosting Goto Kola. Also contains EFA- rich Safflower, Seabuckthorn, Macadamia and Avocado Oils. The Active Enzymes in White and Pink Clay stimulate the skin’s circulation, revealing a younger, brighter complexion."

This mask is recommended for dry and mature skin, but it works wonders on my normal/combination skin (I do have a couple of dry patches on my face though.) Once applied it feels very light and it's easy to remove. I like to keep it in the fridge to get a nice cooling effect. It soothes, moisturises and helps to brighten my skin. It leaves my face feeling soft and refreshed and it smells really nice too. I also noticed that it really reduced the appearance of my the scar on my chin (remember when I burnt my face with a curling wand? yeah...)

Some of the magic ingredients are: 
Rosehip Oil to improve the appearance scars, sun damage, stretch marks, hyper pigmented spots, fine lines and wrinkles. 
Papaya and Apple extracts ~ to help loosen and remove dead skin cells. 

"Remove dead skin cells and improve skin tone with this luxurious moisturising body scrub. Organic Brown Sugar work to buff and polish, while Coconut Butter, Almond and Jojoba Oil moisturise, revealing soft glowing skin. Scented with the rich aroma of Organic Vanilla, Orange and Cardamom essential oils."

Nothing beats a good sugar scrub, especially if it smells of vanilla :) The scent is absolutely beautiful!The scrub is also full of nourishing oils to leave the skin smooth and soft. I love using it, but it does feel a bit scratchy. I am sure all sugar scrubs do :) I use it with my exfoliating gloves or on it's own in the shower once or twice a week. I also like to exfoliate my hands and feet with it, when I do my weekly manicure and pedicure. It is a lovely product, perfect for all vanilla lovers ;)

"Protect baby’s bottom from nappy rash with this soothing, moisturising organic baby balm. Help reduce redness, inflammation and pain, with calming Organic Calendula, St John’s Wort and Shea Butter. Scented with Organic Essential Oils of Healing Lavender and Chamomile. Can also be used on the face or body of babies with extremely dry skin."

I mentioned many times that my baby boy has extremely dry skin. I always make sure that every skincare product I use on him is natural and organic, so I was really happy when I received this baby balm. It contains my favourite  magic ingredient- calendula and it smells amazing!  It helps to heal nappy rash and keeps extremely dry skin hydrated and soft. I really hope that it feels soothing for Zac :) I noticed that when I apply it onto the dry patches on his arms, he stops rubbing and scratching them. The condition of his skin improved dramatically and I will be repurchasing this product. If you are a mummy, or if you want to buy something lovely to include in a baby hamper- this Baby Bottom Balm will be a very appreciated present.

"Beneficial for Blemish Prone Skin. A healing and antiseptic gel, packed full of bacteria-fighting organic ingredients. With Witch hazel, Echinacea, Aloe Vera, Chamomile, Lavender and Tea Tree. To quickly heal and repair, without drying the skin. Echinacea & Tea Tree Gel can be used as an all-in-one moisturiser and treatment for servere acne and problematic skin ~ because it contains Rosehip Extract and glycerine, it will add moisture to the skin without being too heavy."

The last product is the one I use daily. Recently my skin became very acne prone to a point when one side of my face was covered with breakouts. I am used to lovely, breakout free skin, so it was a shock to me! I have no idea what caused it. Anyway, I started using this antiseptic gel on the affected areas of my face and didn't get any new breakouts since! It helps to reduce the redness and irritation and speeds up the healing process. Another good news- it doesn't leave my skin dry.  If my skin feels extremely oily I use it allover my face instead of a moisturiser. I only need the tiniest amount to cover my face, so the 30ml bottle will last for quite a long time.
