Greenwood organics Shea butter and Frangipani body butter



    I love great body products, I am not someone who finds moisturising my body a chore, in fact it is the exact opposite, having five minutes to myself after my bath or shower to make sure my skin is the best it can be is all part and parcel of taking the best care of myself I can and I actually find it very relaxing. Meet my latest moisturising treat the Greenwood Organics Fragipani and Shea Butter body cream* (£28 for 200 mls), I had discovered Greenwood organics some months ago and had loved the look of the products so I was delighted to try this body cream which is a new addition to the range. 

    Greenwood organics are a brand that create organic products to nourish and nurture the skin, the company blends and formulates all their products by hand independently. They are working towards their organic certification on their products and currently use certified organic suppliers, all the organic ingredients have a little * next to them on the ingredients lists so you can clearly see how organic the products really are, I went through a lot of the ingredients lists on the site and was very impressed. A lot of the products are packaged in Violet glass which is easy to recycle and you can return to Greenwood organics if you wish, the body cream comes in a plastic tub which I will be reusing, the company are environmentally conscious and try and reduce waste where possible. 

    This cream is deeply scented with Frangipani, it is a very unique scent, both sweet and floral at the same time, I am fascinated by it and as the months have gone on it has become one of my personal favourites. The scent is one that lingers on the skin for hours after application and as such I have found that I only need a small amount of this product before bed for a relaxing treat for the senses. The formula is simply one of the nicest I have found in a body product, it has great slip, feels silky smooth and is a joy to apply as well as being deeply nourishing without being greasy, I love the formula so much I think it would be lovely if it was available in some different scents as some people may not find Frangipani to their taste, however if you love it I really highly recommend this product as the quality is superb!

    Greenwood organics have full ingredients listings on their site and they have a lovely looking selection of skincare and body care products, I can't find any fault in the ethics or ingredients, some of the water based products contain phenoxyethanol but a lot of the products are water free and have antioxidants added to help them preserve the goodness, so I think they have something that would suit most peoples ingredient standards, I love that most of the ingredients used are organic, it's always nice to encourage organic farming as it has so many benefits for wildlife. Greenwood organics are another lovely company that is British, independent and making wonderful products by hand, all the things I love and look for in a brand and I think is well worth bookmarking the site. I already have my eye on some more products and will probably make a purchase at some point in the future, I really like to support smaller artisan businesses and Greenwood Organics ticks all the boxes.

  3. I am all about body butters right now, it's so funny- I don't think moisturizing is a chore either- it's like my favorite thing in the world! Cool scent too, I have never heard of that!

  4. Hi Ana - I've just popped across to their site for a nosey :) I LOVE the almost black bottles for the other products in the range. Really chic. I also love the essential oil combinations they have put together as well. I think this one is going onto my "must try" list xx

  5. Sounds lovely :) For me, it really depends on the day. Sometimes I love taking those extra 5-10 minutes, but if I'm in a hurry or have lots of other things to get to, it does feel like more of a chore.

    1. I think everyone has those days where it is just too much and moisturising get's skipped but mostly I am very good and like to find the time. When the products are nice it helps me find the time too :) Xx

  6. I've been on the hunt for a new body moisturiser and this ticks literally all the boxes for me! It sounds divine and the ingredients are beautiful, not to mention their organic commitment, as well as being UK based and hand crafted. *Goes straight to their website* Thanks for the review :) x
