New In / Weleda Almond Sensitive Skin Body Lotion

The Almond range is a new addition from Weleda for 2015.
I'm always excited to see new releases from them since it's a brand that doesn't disappoint and that I trust - so much so that I use their products also on my baby (more on that on a future post)... and I don't think there's a better testament than that, right?
The Almond line already has a  facial lotion, facial oil and cleansing lotion and now also includes a body lotion, body wash and hand cream to take care of the body.
The mild and gentle formula is particularly suitable for irritation-prone skin and it's been formulated with just a few, selected ingredients to minimise any reaction.

The Weleda Almond Sensitive Skin Body Lotion* is a velvety moisturiser for the body with a milky consistency.
It contains organic almond oil that strengthens the skin own protection abilities against harsh elements, a bit like mimicking the hard shell that protects the almond inside; it is also high in vitamin E and essential fatty acids.
I have sensitive skin and I found it to be soothing and calming, especially now that the wind & central heating are leaving my skin particularly dry. It's not thick or sticky and easy to massage into the skin and provide lasting hydrating for the whole day.
 It also envelops the body with a fabulous almond scent, but not the sweet and sickening marzipan-like - a true grown up and natural version.
I absolutely adore it!

Have you tried this range yet?

Introducing / Maple Holistics + #Giveaway

I was recently contacted by an over-the-sea brand - Maple Holistics - to be featured on my blog.
After a tour on their website, I was taken by their unique and committed approach to deliver a range of high quality, effective and natural products.

They kindly sent me their Maple Holistics Ancient Clay Facial Mask* to try; face masks are a paramount step of my beauty routine and I use 2/3 times per week.
My skin tends to be combination, so I make sure that I use a clay/charcoal mask once a week.
Clay is brilliant at drawing out impurities and this product in particular contains only 100% blend of french green clay, bentonite clay and fuller's earth. They all have their own therapeutic benefits and play their part in synergy to deliver impeccable results: french green clay absorbs and removes impurities from the skin; bentonite clay revitalises and softly extracts toxins; fuller's earth helps clearing from white and blackheads whilst hydrating.

The mask comes in powder form and with a measuring cup; you need to mix 1 cup of product with 2 cups of water to create a paste and then you leave it on the skin for around 10 minutes. 
I love the dry composition which means the product will last longer; you also get a very generous amount so you can decide to use it for a body detox session.


You can also get the chance to try their products, thanks to the generous people at Maple Holistics, join the giveaway below (sponsored by
The lucky winner will receive :

- Maple Holistics Hydrate Shampoo for dry & itchy scalp with oil treatment;
