Fresh Naturals are an online shop, that sell a range of handmade bath and skincare products. All of their products are cruelty free and more are suitable for vegans, (just be sure to double check). I am always for supporting businesses that use nothing but natural and fresh ingredients. Not only is it great for our environment, but also our skin too. No one should really be plastering chemicals over their body if we can help it right?
I received* so many goodies in my box, its taken me some time to try them out. The only product I haven't yet tried, is the bath bomb, (but we'll get to that in a bit). Let me just point out that from the moment I opened my box, the whole room was filled with the most amazing smells! I was sent six different bath salts, each of a different kind. Theres; soothe, energy, tea tree, spearmint, hit the sack and damask rose. Along with the salts, I received two soaps, a bath bomb and a face duo.
One problem I've found with salts in the past, is the
one or two 20 odd pieces that never dissolve fully. Yes. Those little pieces that end up in certain areas you wish they didn't! So receiving the buffer bag was perfect. It meant I was able to add a few different salts to the mix, and any pieces that didn't dissolve I could see and was able to crumble them between my fingers while they were still in the bag. No more nasty surprises!
My favourite three of the six, have got to be; spearmint, hit the sack and energy. Spearmint is just so fresh and refreshing. If you're someone who loves a bath in the mornings, then this one is a must. Its just a perfect "pick me up" scent. Hit the sack is perfect for bedtime. The Lavender in this mix helps you to relax and unwind after a busy day. And energy, well the smell that comes from this packet is heavenly. Not only does it have that peppermint smell that lifts you, but its combined with the lovely citrus smell from the grapefruit.
Next up is the Dr De-Sniffle bath bomb. As I mentioned I haven't tried this out yet, but I am looking forward to it. Like the name suggest, this smells like something that'll help you unblock your nose when the dreaded cold season comes around. It's mixed with Lavender and Peppermint - kind of reminds me of Vick's. If bath bomb are you thing, you should definitely check out their amazing range that starts from just £2.75 here.
I was sent two soaps; cookie dough and goats milk and honey. The cookie dough definitely looks good enough to eat right? I mean, look at it! It smells great and the scent lingers in my bathroom for some time after using it. An all important factor is it lathers really well and leaves my skin feel soft after use. I haven't tried the goats milk one, but it feels like it's going to be really moisturising on my skin.
Last in my box of goodies is this Grapefruit and Orange, Koalin Clay Face Duo. It can be used as a cleanser, or a face mask for a deeper cleanse.
It probably comes as no surprise, when I say that it smells great?! Again with the citrusy scent, you instantly get lost in the aromas. I'm not usually a fan of orange scents, but mixed with the grapefruit, it really works. I have to be honest and say I've not made my mind up on this yet.
I really want to love it, but I'm not too sure. The consistency is lovely, light and creamy. Its easy to apply and not drying when applied and left like some face masks usually are.
My only concern is I've broken out since using it. I noticed after the first use and again with the second. Whether its a good thing because it clears your skin, or I just can't use it, I'm not sure. My face does feel really soft after using it, I just need to try it a few more times I think to see if it's a coincidence and I've just had a massive break out. Or that this duo is the reason I'm currently so spotty!
Overall I am really impressed by fresh Naturals and I can definitely see me making a few orders from their site in the future. Not only to repurchase some of the goodies they sent me, but to try out a few more of their products and to buy as gifts.
Have you ever tried them before? Out of the lovely bits I received, what would you love to try for yourself?
