My Birthday Haul

 This post is long overdue. Considering my birthday was the end of March and my birthday money has been spent a long time ago.


Firstly a little purchase from Naturisimo. I have Weleda's SeaBuckthorn hand cream that I was lucky enough to win in a twitter competition and I love the bright cheery fragrance of this. I like this a lot.

As you can see I made the most of the sample offer from Naturisimo and ordered the maximum five samples you can pay for. I think it is fair comment that you can only order samples if you buy a full size product but I do wish you could order more samples than five.

I chose a 15ml sample of Elemental Herbology Cell Plumping Moisturiser SPF8 and a 15ml sample of Elemental Herbology Facial Glow Radiance Peel. I have to confess that I haven't got around to trying the moisturiser yet, but the mask I really like and will review soon.

I bought a mini Salt of the Earth deodorant to go in my gym bag.

The little pot is a slice of a Vapour Siren Lipstick in the shade Tempt. It is lovely to be able to try makeup samples. Much as swatches online and on blogs are really helpful, nothing beats trying it for yourself and seeing how it looks in person. I would love to see Naturisimo relax the number of samples you can order and have more make up samples. Especially mascara.

The last item is a sample of Bodhi and Birch Desert Rose Rejuvenating Face Oil which I seem to have bought twice. I do like to be stocked up.
  

Moving on to Aromatherapy Associates which are another brand I really love. Undoubtedly a luxury brand, but a Birthday is the perfect excuse to spoil yourself. I have had a couple of samples of the Inner Strength bath & shower oil, so now was the time to get the full size. They also allow you to choose 3 complimentary samples with your order which is much appreciated.


Finally I bought the full size Bodhi and Birch Desert Rose Rejuvenating Face Oil as they had a promotion of 20% off at the time. This face oil is lovely and I wouldn't want to be without it. They very generously included the sample of Ylang-Ylang Incensa body moisturiser, which I will also review soon.

Speaking of special offers as most of you know Bodhi and Birch have recently rebranded and currently have a sale on their website. I have been very naughty indeed and ordered not once but twice this week from it. If you have chance the newly launched Bodhiluxe website is well worth browsing. It is an online magazine and I can't wait to see how it blossoms.

  5. A belated happy birthday! What a lovely collection of beauty. That AA oil is one of my favourites. I've just reviewed it on my blog :) and I'm fond of Elemental Herbology. I've never tried Bodhi but I think you have reviewed some of the range before, yes? I must give it a try. Tracey x
