Honeybee Gardens Cosmetics

It has been in my radar for the last couple of years, appearing when I was looking for completely toxin-free natural nail polish (not so easy to find!) and eventually ticking all the right boxes for natural and cruelty free cosmetics. And finally this month, Honeybee Gardens has arrived to the UK to join our fabulous organic makeup collection and as always completely free of animal testing.
This remarkable natural makeup range was created in 1995 by herbalist Melissa J. Hertzler. Honeybee cosmetic products are made from only the finest organic ingredients, offered at reasonable prices and never tested on animals.
Honeybee nail polish and renowed nail polish remover are entirely natural and free from toluene, formaldehyde and other toxic solvent-based chemicals usually found in conventional products. Honeybee French Manicure Kit (£16.99) really is fantastic. It contains everything you need to create in only three easy steps, a sophisticated, natural French manicure and it’s completely toxin free!
Another favourite is Honeybee Truly Natural Mascara (£10.99) which allows you to create either a lovely natural look or, thanks to its non-clumping formula, more dramatic sophisticated looks by simply re-applying it. Its weightless light base boasts zero clumping due to the absence of clay in the superior lash-conditioning formula.
Honeybee cosmetics are now available from Naturisimo is offering a FREE Honeybee Lipgloss in Hollywood worth £9.99 with product spend of £40 or over at Naturisimo before 31st July 2009. Enter code HONEY4 at checkout. Terms & Conditions apply.

Whish Shave Cream

It is not often that the Naturisimo office gets really excited about a natural shaving range. However, that is what happened when the new luxury shaving and body range from Whish landed in our shelves.
Shaving my legs isn't so top on my priority list. Plus the boring task of shaving generally ends with some blood stains and dry, itchy skin. However, my shaving experience totally improved when I tried Whish Shave Cream in Pomegranate. It has a thick cream consistency and spreads well over the skin, providing a close shave and left my legs quite moisturised, a feat for any shaving product. Then there is the aroma. The scent of pomegranate is subtle, yet distinct, twisting the notes of fresh fruit with the intense sweet-tart fragrance of the seeds. In short, this is a great product. Don’t take my word for it and try the FREE Whish samples available at
Whish offers us a luscious line of all-natural and organic shave creams, washes, scrubs and butters to pamper you from head to toe. Whish products do not contain any parabens, sulphates, TEA, DEA and petrochemicals and are a truly natural and luxury shaving experience for the ultimate wet shave.

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel

The high temperatures of the last few weeks meant that I have needed to use a lighter moisturiser so it was the ideal chance to use the Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel (£44.05), a product I have wanted to try for a while. And what a fantastic product! This restorative botanical concentrate is wonderfully light so ideal for summer. It has the most delicate revitalising scent with herbal and precious flower aromas and its hydrating serum-like silky texture feels completely oil free. It left my thirsty skin completely nourished and refreshed. I simply love this product!
Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel and its counterpart for sensitive skin, Jurlique Soothing Herbal Recovery Gel (£44.05) are not only potent effective moisturizers ideal for warm climates but also antiageing concentrates to help minimize the visible signs of aging with daily use so they can be used as treatments to bring out your skin's most youthful glow. Now this is a potent concentrate so if your skin is delicate or very sensitive you may need to use the Jurlique Soothing Recovery Gel and in extreme cases, even that can prove too potent to some. Other than that, there is no faulting Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel as a skin treatment or moisturiser.

Jurlique skincare range is available at Naturisimo is offering a completely FREE Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel (15m) worth £22.50 when you spend £60 in any products at Naturisimo before 31st July 2009.
