Isla Apothecary

With Clean Beauty products becoming more and more popular, London based Isla Apothecary is a new brand to me and if you like your products to have that little bit of a kick when it comes to scent, then this is one not to miss. Described as being a clean beauty and wellness range, delivering and celebrating ritualistic skincare and self-care that marries natural and organic ingredients, I have been using two products from the range and they have made quite the impression.

Every product within this range is hand crafted and beautifully packaged, each product is housed in brown glass jars with a rose gold label around the middle which details the name of the product, its ingredients and how to use it. There is also notes of caution and information to inform you that the product is Vegan, all natural and cruelty-free. 

Anyone who reads my blog will know how much of a fan I am of Bath Salts, something which in my opinion are totally undervalued and not written about enough. The Relax + Recover Bath Salts (£20.00) is described as being a comforting and grounding blend of essential oils designed to transport the mind and body into deep relaxation.  Removing the lid, the first thing that hits you is the scent of those essential oils which really come to life.

If you have one of those days when you just need to soak away all those aches, pains, woes, worries and stresses, these bath salts tick every single box. A sweet floral bath soak made up of dried Lavender and the oils of Rose Geranium, Bergamot and Cedarwood Atlas with Epsom salt, the first thing you notice is just how relaxing that scent is and as soon as it comes into contact with the steam from the running bath water, that scent only intensifies. Added to the list of ingredients is a pure boost of Magnesium Sulphate which helps to assist the body's recovery post-exercise as well as where there is any muscular tension and tiredness.  For me, these bath salts are an incredible way to relax and unwind and more so when I am struggling to sleep, after using them, you feel so relaxed that all you want to do is drift off.

The second product I have been using from Isla Apothecary is the Blood Orange + Vanilla Sugar Scrub (£13.00) which is again 100% Natural and 99% Organic. I use a scrub a few times a week and what I love about this is just how beautiful it feels on the skin.

Using Italian Blood Orange Oil which is both sweet and tangy alongside Indian Vanilla which together smells just absolutely incredible, good enough to eat in fact. Added to that comes the use of Shea Butter which deeply conditions and moisturises the skin, Coconut, Peach Kernal and Vitamin E oils which cocoon the skin with a protective barrier against water loss.  Finally, Organic Raw Cane Sugar forms the scrub part of this polish and it buffs the skin to eliminate dead and dry skin as well as impurities.  Coming together these products essentially cleanse, tone and moisturise the skin for you in one swoop and as it does so, smells just divine.

After using there is no greasy residue left on the skin, the only thing you will notice aside from an amazing aroma, is just how soft and smooth your skin is. 

So here we have two amazing products full of incredible ingredients and I love the thought that each product has been hand made.  Have you tried anything from Isla Apothecary?
