Organic & Botanic Review*

Back in the Summer, I was lucky enough to get sent 2 full size products from the lovely people that work at Organic & Botanic. The reason that this post has taken me so long to write up is because I've been so busy with school recently, and I haven't had the chance to take much time for myself, which means that I've barely even reached for new products as much as I know I should have, considering I'm supposed to be testing them out.
I've used both of these gifts a couple of times now since I received them, and so I feel like now is a good time to get this post sorted out, as it should have been up months ago - oops!
First up, I think it's important that I mention the fact that Organic & Botanic is actually a cruelty free, 100% natural skincare brand, who don't include any parabens, or nasty chemicals in their products. As someone who is still trying to make a slow transition towards the cruelty free side of beauty, that's always something that I like to research, and look into before working with, or purchasing from anyone that I haven't heard of before. I was very kindly sent both the Amazonian Berry Shea Butter Body Cream, and the Mandarin Orange Correcting Facial Serum to test out, and share my thoughts with my readers.
When I received the package, and had an initial sniff of the products, I couldn't help but notice how nice they both smelt. I don't think I've ever come across anything that smells quite as amazing. I was slightly taken aback, if I'm honest! I absolutely adore berries, and their fresh, but sweet scent, so I was really happy to notice that's how the body cream smells. The packaging is glass, and although it's fairly simple, it gives off a very classy, chic vibe, which I really like, and appreciate. The facial serum doesn't smell of berries, but as the name suggests, it smells of mandarins instead. I'm not complaining at all. It's also quite sweet, and refreshing, and I definitely don't mind applying it to my face, because it isn't too overwhelming at all. It's the perfect choice, in my opinion.
I'm going to start off by talking about the Amazonian Berry Shea Butter Body Cream. Even though I'm aware of the benefits to moisturising, and taking care of your body, I've never found the right product to use, no matter how many I've tried out. However, this body cream is different. I really do like it! It's like a whipped cream, as I'm sure you can imagine, and as soon as you take the lid off, the gorgeous scent just creeps out, and fills the entire room. I can't get enough of it, I'm telling you! When I've used it, I just apply it to my hands, my arms, or my legs, and it does the trick every time. It's really easy to work into the skin, and it doesn't make leave any residue on your hands either, which is something that usually puts me off from other products that I've tried. It instantly makes your skin super soft, especially if you have just shaved your legs, and the smell lingers for ages. It's such a beautiful product, and definitely one that I'll continue to use throughout the Winter months.
In all honesty, I wasn't actually sure if I was going to like the Mandarin Orange Correcting Facial Serum. I'd never tried anything quite like it before, and I always just assumed that they were sticky, and kind of pointless for someone who's only a teenager, like myself. I've tried this serum a couple of times now, and I think I'm beginning to warm to it. It smells super fresh, and fruity, which is enough to entice me if I'm honest! It makes your skin appear glowy, and healthy, as well as looking supple, which is what a serum is meant to do! I think? I'm still not entirely sure! I personally use it by collecting the product in the pipette, and then just squeezing a little drop into the palms of my hands, and patting it onto my face. Comment below, and let me know if I'm doing it wrong though!
Thank you very much once again to the PR people at Organic & Botanic for sending me these two gorgeous goodies. I really am very grateful, and appreciative!
Lots of love always,
