Conscious Skincare Organic Abyssinian Oil Review

shameless fripperies blog march 2015We were really pleased to have our Abyssinian Oil featured in great post ‘Face Oils at Every Budget‘ by Sydney blogger Karima at Shameless Fripperies;

‘The new kid on the block, Abysinnian oil is touted as the plant-based alternative to mineral oil – similar applications sans irritations and sensitivities. Frequently described as a thin oil?! No waiiii, it’s very viscous (even when applied to damp skin) and forms an occlusive barrier that makes it ideal for retaining moisture during the colder months.

Picture this. I’ve had a long day filled with pollution, stress, sun AND sunscreen. Take off shoes, complain loudly. Thorough cleanse to remove the city soot and bus-goer grime (welcome to Sydney). Problem: today has not been kind to my skin. Solution: Abyssinian Oil, without a doubt. City dwellers can relate. Continue reading “Conscious Skincare Organic Abyssinian Oil Review”

Ana Goes Green Blog review of Sweet Orange and Frangipani Body Butter

It was great to have our fabulous Sweet Orange and Frangipani Body Butter reviewed by beauty blogger Ana goes green!

Conscious skincare Sweet orange and Frangipani Body Butter* (£18.99 for 250 mls)

I really like the simplicity of the ingredients in this brand which is handmade in Wales and this body butter is so perfect for this time of year. Frangipani is a scent that I love but that I find can be a little overpowering, in this case though it is mixed with sweet orange oil making it such a perfect combination as they seem to balance each other so that neither is too overpowering.

The ingredients couldn’t be better with no water there are also no preservatives just gorgeous butters and oils blended and whipped to the most gorgeous texture, this really does melt just like butter on the skin with only a small amount needed to leave skin so soft and smooth this is a new winter favourite, I just adore it!”
