More from The earth works cosmetics


    My collection of products from the Earth works cosmetics is growing, I received two of their products for review and I loved them both (review) and despite not really needing any more body products I gave in to temptation and ordered two more of their body melts, as I was keen to try more from the range. I have found that the Earth works cosmetics delivers consistently good products for a great price point, the ingredients and packaging are great and the products are all a pleasure to use, in terms of quality these products perform on par with brands that are priced in a far higher price bracket in my opinion and for that reason I keep coming back for more. 

    I ordered the Lavender and sweet orange body melt (£12.50 for 80 grams) and the Lemon Geranium body melt (£4 for 40 grams) both of these are completely waterless and made up of a beautiful blend of oils and butters like macadamia, cocoa butter and Shea butter. I love the melt consistency of these of products I have been really happy with how soft and smooth they make my skin and as long as you use sparingly (so important with waterless formulas not to overuse!) then you will not be left greasy but just nourished and protected. The lime and coconut body butter is one of my favourite scented products and now the Lavender and Sweet orange melt comes a close second, it is soothing and relaxing especially before bed. The lemon and geranium is not one I would repurchase purely because it is mainly geranium and not enough lemon for my taste, I was hoping for something more zesty however performance wise it's great and I will use and enjoy my jar. I love these smooth melts they are such a pleasure to use and would be a great addition to a pamper evening or just for every day use. 

    I was also lucky enough to win two other facial skincare products in Ria's giveaway recently, I have been testing lot's of face products recently and I haven't been able to use these as much as I would like, so this will be more of a first impressions than a full review. Even so I can say the quality of these is also fantastic. The Rose face moisturiser (£14 for 40 grams) is a very rich cream perfectly suited to dry skin like mine, I reached for this a couple of times when my skin was very dry and flaky and it did a fantastic job at sorting it out. This is very light on essential oils and has a gentle formula so I was very happy using it on my sensitive skin, I can see this being a real favourite next autumn and the great price point means that is it one I would likely repurchase. I will update you on how I get on longer term in another post. The next face product is the Regenerating face serum (£17.50 for 25 grams) I love a good oil and despite having far too many on the go I couldn't resist giving this a little test, it adds a beautiful glow to the skin and has a slight brightening effect. I have been using this after a face mask and also on some nasty burns that I had from cooking, I am pretty confident that thanks to this serum they will not scar which is great. This is a blend of Argan and rosehip with essential oils simple but effective for drier and more mature skins, it is quite highly scented there is ylang ylang, sweet orange, patchouli and clary sage in there which makes for quite a sweet fragrance it's not one I would reach for on a daily basis but it is a nice occasional treat.

  2. The Lemon & Geranium scent sounds beautiful but I think I'd hope for a bit more lemon than geranium, too. Ah well!

    1. Funny that I could really smell the geranium but hoped for more lemon! Maybe the batch is sightly different Xx
