Since having had Daniel, I am more aware of the hidden chemicals in every day life. I’ve massively cut back on the cleaning products we use, in response to Daniel’s young skin getting very inflamed after using soap powder at six weeks old.
As part of the general cutting back on chemicals, I spent an evening browsing the internet looking for some animal friendly and paraben free bath products. I am a bit of a bath junkie, happily spending my evenings soaking in the tub. I tend to get bought a lot of Lush stuff, but sadly, Lush stuff does often contain those nasty parabens. So… as I looked around the net, I came across the Buddha Beauty Company. They describe themselves as ‘A British Brand with a Love for the Far East’ and there products are super animal friendly, being BUAV and Vegan approved.
I had a look round their website and was very impressed with the products on offer. I then followed them to twitter and, amazingly, they were asking for bloggers to review some products. I offered my blog up and a week or so ago I received a lovely little package from them.
First thing, the box smelt amazing, really fresh smells and once opened, the items were packaged really nicely in lovely pink paper.
I was sent a candle (which I’ve yet to use) and a ‘High Life Bath bomb’. I used the bath bomb last night… it was brilliant. Like all good bath bombs it fizzed away and turned the water a lovely pinky red. It also released some petals and smelt gorgeous. The blurb about this particular bath bomb states:
Lay back and live the high life, gently breath in scented clouds of champagne and strawberries, as a rich blend of skin pleasing ylang ylang and gold of pleasure oils wash over you.Just drop your bomb in to a bath of warm water and watch as it fizzes, releasing its perfume and essential oils, while the Bicarbonate of Soda softens the water.
