New In: Skincare & Bodycare

I can't remember the last time I wrote about skincare and bodycare. It's been a long time and to be honest, I very rarely have 'me time' lately and pampering became a real luxury. I became the queen of multitasking. Breastfeeding, replying to emails with one hand and eating my dinner in between sentences. It's ridiculous, haha! Anyway... Here are some lovely skincare and bodycare bits I wanted to show you.

Feelunique always adds new exciting brands to their website and MOR is one of them. I was kindly sent the MOR Belladonna Hand & Body Lotion* and Hand & Body Wash* samples to try out and I must admit - they smell lovely! The brand has a huge selection of products, from bath and body to perfume and home fragrance.  I also adore the packaging.

Another recent feelunique launch, as the website became the only official UK stockist of Collistar. They do skincare, bodycare, self tan, hair and suncare. The Brightening Cleansing Foam*(£18.00) is recommended for for re-awakening the skin in the morning and for purifying and preparing it for its night-time rest in the evening. The watery formula turns into a mousse when dispensed, cleanses and removes traces of makeup and dirt left on your skin.

I love little gift sets with travel sized products and this Herborist Discovery Kit* (£25.00) is perfection. The Chinese brand is now available in UK (at feelunique) and they are all about combining the power of plants with the most innovative modern cosmetic formulations. The kit contains a T’ai Chi MasksTwo masks, a Revitalizing & Firming Eye Cream and a Revitalizing & Firming Day Cream. I was mostly impressed by the two masks, based on the principle of Yin & Yang balance. The black mask cleanses and purifies the skin and the white one has nourishing and soothing properties. Lovely!

All new Merumaya products really excite me, simply because I adore their unique scent! I am slightly obsessed actually and I secretly hope they bring out a fragrance or a room spray one day. I would be delighted! The new Everything Everywhere Beauty Oil* (£26.50) is a real multitasker (just like me at the moment, haha) and it can be used anywhere. You can use it on your face, body, mix it with moisturisers, as a scalp treatment, to tame frizzy ends on your hair, nourish cuticles, brows and lashes or as an intense overnight foot/hand treatment. The formula is a non-greasy and easily absorbed blend of Kahai Oil, Argan Oil and  oat, grapeseed and jojoba oils.

I am big on body scrubs and this Balance Me Skin Brightening Body Polish* (£18.00) is just lovely! Featuring a blend of 65% natural sea salts, spearmint oil, shea butter, sweet almond and organic coconut oil, it has a perfect balance of refreshing and moisturising properties. It leaves my skin super soft and nourished and it smells incredible.

Let me know, if there are any other new releases I should try.

  1. Is this the same Mor that was sold in Space NK stores?? I used to love their soaps but sadly they didn't sell well enough and the brand was discontinued.


  2. The only brand I have heard about is the Balance me on, but they all sound fab. I really want to try the Balance Me body polish.

  3. I have never used any of these but they all sound amazing especially the MOR body lotion and hand wash xx

  4. Love your skincare posts, another good one :)

  5. The brightening cleansing foam is one I want to try!

  6. I love the sound of the Herborist Discovery Pack - perfect size to take away with you for the weekend. I use a lot of Korean skin care which is amazing, so really interested to hear/see more about this Chinese brand.
