Yogandha – Balance Roll-On Body Oil

Yogandha – Balance Roll-On Body Oil

If you’re a regular reader of Beauty Best Friend blog you may have noticed that I’ve been AWOL for a few days – that’s because I’ve been busy with other things… Two weeks ago I gave birth to a beautiful baby daughter, so blogging has had to take a back seat for a few days whilst I take care of her and we try to get into a routine. I was also struck down by a kidney infection which was the last thing I needed, but luckily I’m feeling much better now and we’re starting to get into some kind of a routine. A few days before I gave birth I was sent this Roll-On Body Oil* from Yogandha and it couldn’t have come at a better time! Available in three scents I chose the Balance variety to help balance and normalise my hormones after having a baby – the other two fragrances are stress relieving Ground and uplifting Salute. All of Yogandha’s wellness oils are 100% natural, vegan and...

Temple Spa – Repose Aromatherapy Resting Cream

Temple Spa – Repose Aromatherapy Resting Cream

Before I start this review I have to make a confession… although I had never tried any of their products I always had a negative image of Temple Spa. This is mainly down to an awful woman at a wedding fair that I attended years ago who was a Temple Spa consultant, she was trying to force everyone in the room to sniff their products and sign up for a party. I’ve also always been a bit cynical of brands that sell via a ‘party plan’ scheme – I couldn’t see how they could sell quality products when everyone (company, area manager, consultant, party host) was taking a profit, and always thought they were overpriced rubbish… I know, I know, there are exceptions to this rule, but having been to many Virgin Vie parties in my time I was very sceptical. Anyway, earlier this month I was contacted by Temple Spa to ask if I was willing to give up my usual moisturiser for Lent and replace it with...

Quinessence – Fantasia Mood Enhancer Vaporising Oil

Quinessence – Fantasia Mood Enhancer Vaporising Oil

I was recently given the opportunity to try out one of Quinessence’s aromatherapy oils. I chose this Fantasia Mood Enhancer Vaporising Oil, a blend of essential oils to help focus concentration whilst you are working, writing or being creative. As I am a jewellery designer I thought this blend would be perfect to help enhance my creativity and inspire me whilst writing my blog posts! Fantasia is a blend of Bergamot, Lime, Lavender and Rosemary essential oils, it does smell quite citrussy which I think must be the lime fragrance coming through. The directions say to add 4-6 drops of the Mood Enhancer to a heated vaporiser, and I have been using it in in a little ceramic vaporiser in my workshop whilst I am designing. It gives a lovely uplifting warming scent to the room, and whilst I’m not sure if I have felt more creative whilst using the oil it does definitely help to lift the spirit (especially today when it is so cold outside!). I really...
