urbanveda: Reviving Renewing Night Cream Rose+Botanicals

I've used some of the other skincare ranges from urbanveda before.  See my review of the Purifying range here.

Products are formulated using natural ingredients and the principles of Ayurveda using herbs, flowers and fruits combined with vitamins and actives.  The ranges are designed to suit different skin types. Find out your dosha here.

The ranges: Purify, Soothe, Revive and Radiance.

Packaging is recyclable and products are free from parabens, SLS, artificial colours, no GMO and certified by the Vegetarian Society. No animal ingredients except cruelty free honey and beeswax and no animal testing.

I was sent the very lovely Reviving Renewal Night Cream with Rose+Botanicals (50ml - £14.99)* to review. It is good for tired or mature skin types.

This light but rich fast absorbing night cream smells divine! It has a delicate rose and jasmine scent which is soothing, calming and perfect to use just before bed. It is also a pleasure to use and one of the nicest night creams I've tried lately.

It contains hydrating Rose Damask Flower Water, organic and collagen boosting extracts, is rich in Essential Fatty Acids and Omega Rich Bio-Oils.  It helps to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles as well as restoring suppleness and elasticity.

To use: apply to face, neck and decolletage nightly after cleansing.  I definitely want to explore more products in this range.

Have you used any urbanveda products?

Trill Farm Spring Sea Salt Body Conditioner with Coconut & Cleavers

I recently came across Trill Farm's Season Boxes (Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter). These boxes are stuffed full of edibles, health & beauty and homes & garden items (and look amazing!)  You can check out what's inside the Winter box here.

Trill Farm is a 300 acre mixed Organic Farm in East Devon. Romy Fraser and her family bought the farm in 2008 with the aims of developing an education centre, accommodation and several small businesses on site - Trill Farm Garden, grazing Cattle & Sheep, Soap & Natural Beauty Workshops and a Herb Growing Business.

All the products are creating using ingredients grown on the farm.  I'd spotted the Spring Sea Salt Body Conditioner 150g (£12 plus £4.95 P&P) in a magazine a while back and knew I'd like to try it out at some point.

The scrub smells simply fantastic! Slightly herbal with citrus notes.  It is made with Coconut oil, Shea Butter, Rosehip, Honey, Cleavers herb and Petigrain along with Cornish Sea Salt. If you use it on damp skin it is super gentle and deeply conditions the skin.  Using it on dry skin makes it a bit more scrubby.

Apply to damp skin in circular movements before rinsing. It leaves the skin soft, smooth and nourished.  Next time I'm wanting to try Autumn Warming Balm and one of the soaps.

Have you tried anything from Trill Farm?

Trinket Pixie SunCatchers

My friend Magi alerted me to the beautiful SunCatchers that Caroline at Trinket Pixie makes. (as well as gorgeous silver jewellery and bunting). You can see more on the Website and on Facebook.

I bought the larger one with the beach huts (£17.50 plus P&P) although I picked my parcel up locally.  Caroline very kindly gifted me the mini boat* one - thanks again Caroline!  They come with two metal clips and clear craft string for hanging.

I'm looking forward to summer time! (ignore my grimy winter windows!).

Christmas Lunch at Foresters Guild, Portobello, Edinburgh

On Sunday we went for Christmas Lunch to our local pub - Foresters Guild which is located in Portobello, Edinburgh. The pub got a re-vamp earlier in the year. A map of the town adorns the ceiling and the menus are made from the original floorboards.

The food was simply delicious and the staff really efficient and friendly - if you are in the area I highly recommend! They also serve a huge range of beers and lagers as well as the usual wines, ciders, and spirits.

David started with the Chicken Liver Pate with Orange and Anise Syrup with Balsamic Roasted Figs.  The pate which was very obviously homemade was smooth and flavoursome and the figs and mini apples the perfect accompaniment.

I had the Hot and Cold Smoked Salmon with bread and butter, capers, shallots and lemon. This was a very generous portion which was delicious and fresh tasting.

We both chose Turkey which came with stuffing bonbons and homemade gravy. The board with all the trimmings was overflowing!   I can honestly say it was as good as homemade.  

You can have Christmas menu throughout December. Phone to book - 0131 669 2750. See the website here and follow on Facebook here.

Lucy's Lotions: Vitamin E & Grapefruit Rejuvenating Night Oil, Day Cream & Body Butter

Having loved the Lucy's Lotions Vitamin E & Grapefruit Lip Balm I received in October's Souk Souk Beauty Box - see my review here I knew I wanted to try the rest of the range.  The whole range smells gorgeous! Really uplifting and zesty.

Vitamin E & Grapefruit Rejuvenating Night Oil (£26 - 100ml) this is a luxe blend of 6 oils.  This light and easily absorbed oil is suitable for all skin types.  It also rejuvenates tired and damaged skin types.

It contains Argan Oil which contains high levels of Essential Fatty Acids and helps with cell renewal.  Avocado Oil soothes and repairs and Olive Squalane helps maintain moisture in the skin.  The oil contains no parabens and is suitable for vegetarians.  Vitamin E helps fight the signs of ageing and it can help protect the skin from UVA rays.  The oil is scented with uplifting Grapefruit, Mandarin and Lavender Essential oils which refreshes, moisturises, soothes and calms.

Apply a few drops to the skin after cleansing.  This is one of my favourite skincare products this year.

Vitamin E & Grapefruit Day Cream (£15.85 - 60ml) a Vitamin rich cream which is packed full of nourishing oils of Jojoba, Apricot and Vitamin E and scented with Grapefruit Essential oil.  Orange Flower Water soothes the skin. The cream nourishes and repairs. Smoothing out lines and wrinkles. Natural mineral Titanium Dioxide provides SPF15.  I sometimes at a drop or two of Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil or Bodhi & Birch's Desert Rose Rejuvenating Face Oil or Neroli Luce Revitalising Face Oil for a bit of extra nourishment.

Vitamin E & Grapefruit Body Butter (£14 - 150ml) I'd say this is the product I'm disappointed with out the range. Don't get me wrong its a lovely body cream but not a body butter as I know it.  Light and fluffy it hydrates the skin and helps improve elasticity.

Have you used any Lucy's Lotions products before?

The Ginvent Advent Calendar - the first 6 days

I am really enjoying my alternative Advent Calendar this year.  Here's my thoughts on the first six days.

Day One: Edinburgh Gin (43% ABV) this award winning gin is distilled in Edinburgh and the botanicals used are Scottish Juniper, Pine, Heather and Milk Thistle.  Really tasty with Juniper and soft heather notes.  It makes a perfect G&T. One of my favourites.

Day 2: Filliers Dry Gin 28 (46% ABV) - I've not tried this gin before. It is made using 28 botanicals plus Juniper. It has quite a citrus taste with light Juniper notes.  

Day 3: Hayman's Old Tom Gin (40% ABV) - this has been my least favourite so far. It has a slightly sweet taste which I didn't really like. It is made with botanicals of Juniper and Liquorice root.

Day 4: Tarquins Handcrafted Cornish Gin (42% ABV) WOW this gin is amazing. I love its slightly floral notes of Devon violets and orange blossom with a fresh flavour. Delicious served neat too.  An extra special gin. (dropping hints to Santa!)

Day 5: Perry's Tot Navy Strength Gin (57% ABV) - this gin surely packs a punch! With botanicals such as Juniper, Cinnamon, Cardamon, Star Anise, Lemon, Orange and Grapefruit.  An interesting addition is Wild Flower Honey. It is absolutely delicious served over ice...and I absolutely love it!

Day 6: Two Birds Gin (40% ABV) - made using Juniper and four countryside botanicals. It tastes delicious and is refreshing and flavoursome.  It makes a perfect G&T.

Well from the first six days I'd buy: Edinburgh Gin (already a favourite), Tarquins Handcrafted Cornish Gin, Perry's Tot and Two Birds.

Have you tried any of these gins before?

Cult Beauty Goody Bag

Last week Cult Beauty offered an amazing goody bag featuring some of the best beauty products from 2014 which was worth an incredible £178 and absolutely free with a £100 spend.  As you'll probably be aware the system crashed as so many wanted to buy to get this amazing gift which is the best offered this year.  I did find it hard to get in touch initially with Customer Services but after a tweet or two they did get back to me.  I picked up my parcel (with some Christmas presents in it) yesterday morning.

WOW is all I can say!

When I delved into the package the first thing I dug out was the Jade Facial Roller worth £20 from Ying Yu Rollers. It helps to encourage Lymph drainage, ease blocked sinuses, reduce puffiness around the eyes and can help with headaches. Can't wait to try it.

Next out was Cult 51 Cream this is a 10ml sample pot (worth £25). I've read loads about this cream and I can't wait to try it out! It is said to do the work of at least 5 products and taking care of all skincare needs. It brightens, regenerates, renews, restores, reduces wrinkles, helps with uneven skin and age spots.  You can also use it as an eye cream.

Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts (100g - £10) - these just simply do what they say they will - use before bed and they will give you an amazing night's sleep. Upon waking you will feel calm, relaxed and ready to face the world. See my review here. Very happy to see these in the gift as I buy them again and again as they work!

NEOM Happiness Scented Travel Candle (75g - £16) - with an uplifting scent of White Neroli, Mimosa & Lemon. I first tried this scent out via an Amarya Beauty Box (now Love Lula). I love NEOM products so happy to see this included in the set.

A £10 Cult Beauty Gift Card for a tenner off your next purchase!

Sunday Riley Start Over Active Eye Cream 10ml - approx £21) - this brand is popular with A List Celebs including Cameron Diaz, Helen Mirren and Victoria Beckham.  The cream brightens and gives the benefits akin to 8 hours sleep. It helps to banish dark circles, lift and brighten the skin round the eyes. Another product I can't wait to try!

Studio 10 Longlast Velvet Lips (6.3ml - £22) - in Tearose. Really happy with this shade as it is a colour I'd wear. It gives a demi-matt long lasting finish and is paraben free.

Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow Primer (2.55g - £16) - which is a great eye-brow tamer. You can also use it as an invisible lip liner to stop lipstick bleeding, as a filler for lines & crows feet and as an eyeshadow base.

Kai Perfume Oil Sample Vial - one of my favourite scents (a teeny tiny 3.6ml rollerball retails at £40) it is a totally tropical scent with notes of gardenia, exotic florals with green notes. Paraben & Sulphate free.

REN Glycolatic Radiance Renewal Mask 15ml - I think I must be among the last to try this cult beauty product! Looking forward to trying it.

Jouer Lip Enhancer 4.5ml sample - offers intensive conditioning overnight. Packed full of super nourishing ingredients.  Leaves lips glossy and conditioned.

Alpha-H Liquid Gold (50ml - £16.75) - not a fan of this as I find it too harsh on my skin. Will pass onto a friend who loves it.

Resultime by Collin Regenerating Collagen Gel 5ml trial size - apply in the morning before your moisturiser. In the evening apply a thick layer to clean dry skin 10 minutes before bed and awaken to hydrated and plumped up skin.  Can also be used as a primer, as a night-time nourishing serum, to treat sunburn and dry patches.

Earthen Instant Peel (1 application) - apply to moist skin and apply to the skin in a massaging motion peeling dead skin cells. Rinse.

Silver Make Up Bag

My two free sachet samples (for orders over £40) were Glamglow Supermud Clearing Mask 2.1ml and Jouer Matt Moisture Tint beige rose 1ml

Did you manage to pick up the goody bag?
