Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a lovely time over Christmas.
During the Christmas period Naturisimo ran a 12 days of Green Beauty Advent Competition on their Facebook Page.
I was super pleased I won this custom made Luxury Travel Set worth over £100.
I could hardly wait to get my hands on it as it features some of my favourite luxury brands (Aurelia, Bodhi & Birch and Oskia). I’ve had my eye on Intelligent Nutrients so I was eager to try the products.
Here’s whats in the box:
Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser
I love Aurelia skincare products, they are always on my wishlist. They feel so luxurious and are very effective. The Miracle Cleanser is light and creamy and glides onto the skin easily to remove impurities and makeup.
I absolutely love the uplifting aromatic fragrance of eucalyptus, chamomile, rosemary and bergamot.
I simply apply the cleanser to dry skin, massage with my fingertips and remove cleanser with the bamboo muslin cloth. What I love about this cleanser is that it gives me a deep cleanse without stripping my skin. The bamboo muslin cloth also helps to gently buff away dead skin cells and stimulate the skin. I have noticed my skin is brighter, smoother and softer.
I am totally hooked on this cleanser and while the full size 120ml costs £34 which is rather pricey, it is an indulgence worth having. This cleanser is suitable for all skin types including sensitive.
The range is free from a number of harmful and unethical ingredients which include: synthetic fragrances, colorants, parabens, mineral oils, silicones, sulphates, propylene glycol, phthalates, GMO, PEGs, TEA, DEA, MI, formaldehyde, urea, mercury, lead and bee venom.
Bodhi & Birch Neroli Luce Revitalising Face Oil
(5ml sample – £9.95)
Ingredients: Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Prunus Armeniaca, (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Seed Oil, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Fruit Oil, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Flower Oil, Boswellia Carterii (Frankincense) Oil, Lavendula Augustifolia (High-Altitude Lavender) Flower Oil, Pelargoneum Graveolens (Geranium) Flower Oil, Cymbopogon Martini (Palmarosa) Oil, Cananga Odorata (Ylang-Ylang) Flower Oil, Benzyl Alcohol*, Benzyl Benzoate*, Benzyl Salicylate*, Citral*, Citronellol*, Eugenol*, Farnesol*, Geraniol*, Isoeugenol*, Limonene*, Linalool*. * natural component of essential oils.
I’ve been a huge fan of Bodhi & Birch for a number of years and so far I’ve loved every product I’ve tried.
The Neroli Luce Revitalising Face Oil is a new one for me.
Revitalise and rebalance with skin-toning Tunisian Neroli, rejuvenating Frankincense and restorative Sea Buckthorn oil. Instantly absorbed to nourish and hydrate skin leaving it toned and radiant without feeling greasy.
Vital vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids help revive a lacklustre complexion, increase elasticity, boost resilience, heal blemishes and rebalance the skin’s natural hydration system. Skin is protected from free radical damage and cocooned in the vibrant aroma of Mediterranean orange blossoms.
The formula is 100% natural and is suitable for normal, combination, dull and tired or blemish-prone skin.
Use morning and night after cleansing and toning. Massage one to two pumps over face blending from decolletage up to forehead. Apply after serum and before moisturiser. Use under make-up to help even out skin tone and reduce mid-day shine.
I love to use it as a night treatment. It feels incredible on my skin and absorbs well without any greasy residue. It has really helped to improve and balance my dull dehydrated skin.
One or two pumps is all you really need. A little goes a long way and it will last ages.
All Bodhi & Birch products are naturally free from harsh synthetics – no petrochemicals, no sulphates, no parabens, no synthetic colours, synthetic fragrances or animal ingredients. Bodhi & Birch do not condone animal testing and all products have been tested on and evaluated by a volunteer panel of human testers, not animals.
Oskia Bedtime Beauty Boost
This is one my favourite Oskia products. I had an Oskia facial a few years ago and it was pure bliss.
This luxurious night cream is packed with patented anti-age ingredients, nutrients & floral extracts to provide your skin with an supercharged overnight health & beauty boost to help prevent the signs of premature ageing and give a softer, healthier-looking morning complexion.
Light in texture but rich in essential cell nutrients in addition to hydrating, brightening and anti-ageing actives, it is designed to help stimulate the skin’s natural regeneration process, iron out the appearance of wrinkles, reduce age spots and give skin a naturally radiant, youthful glow. Formulated with OSKIA’s unique nutritional approach and signature MSM repair & regenerating complex.
It has a deep perfume of Bulgarian Rose, and a hint of OSKIA signature Rose-Lychee.
It is suitable for all skin types and excellent for dry, mature and hormonal skin.
The full size 50ml has a rather hefty price tag of £74 which is definitely a splurge. All I can say is my skin loves it as I notice visible improvements in my skin tone, it is also more hydrated and glowy.
All products are free from parabens, petrochemicals, fragrances, dyes, phthalates, silicones, DEA, TEA or sulphates.

I really like this lip balm, it glides on smoothly and easily. It has a slight tingle which I love, smells great and keeps my lips hydrated.
Intelligent Nutrients Purifying Tonic
Intelligent Nutrients Purifying Tonic (formely Anti-aging Mist) is more than a toner, beyond a mere balancer, anything but an ordinary astringent. It refreshes and revitalises skin while lightly moisturizing and helping to renew cells. Formulated with the Intellimune Seed Meal and Seed Oil Complex in a highly bio-available form sinks into skin and helps it retain water, inhibits the loss of collagen and strengths with a pure blend of antioxidant and omega fatty acids. This water-based formula also helps prepare for serum and moisturizer application.
It is suitable for all skin types.

It has a lovely floral scent and I find it really helps my serum and moisturiser absorb better into my skin.
The full size 97ml costs £30.

I use this after applying the anti-aging mist. I apply 1-2 pumps and massage onto my face and neck.
It makes my skin feel soft and hydrated immediately. I really enjoy using it.
The full size 50ml costs £50. Definitely one for my wish list!
Intelligent Nutrients Restorative Moisturizing Emulsion
Intelligent Nutrients Restorative Moisturizing Emulsion (former Organic Anti-Aging Moisture) hydrates skin while restoring radiance, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and preventing future damage.
It combines apricot, acai and safflower with its signature antioxidant-rich Intellimune Seed Oil Complex to help retain moisture, strengthen and repair cell membranes, inhibit the destruction of collagen and improve elasticity. The luxurious formula leaves skin soft, supple and glowing.
This moisturiser is very light and liquidy. On it own it doesn’t do much for my skin. I find it more moisturising when paired with the serum.
It is suitable for all skin types.
The full size 90ml costs £40.
Boasting the world’s first certified organic, food-based cosmetic preservative system that’s 100% free of toxicity, petrochemicals, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, dioxanes, silicone, lead and heavy metals, the amazing Intelligent Nutrients products are made with nutrition, not harm. All Intelligent Nutrients products are certified organic by the USDA.
Now although these products are rather pricey, I find because they are potent you don’t need to be heavy handed with them. A little really does go a long way and they should last you ages.
