If you haven’t guessed from my blog already, I’m a huge lover of beauty products. For as long as I can remember I’ve been addicted to picking up new products to try out, especially from brands I’ve not tried before. Of course I’ve got a few favourite products I like to repurchase again and again, but it’s always nice to find a new brand I’ve not heard anything about. Recently Urtekram got in touch with me to tell me about their range of organic beauty products, and sent me over a couple of products from their body care range to learn more about.
Urtekram is Scandinavia’s largest organic wholesaler, creating natural organic beauty products. Their recent organic range is hypoallergenic and incredibly gentle on young skin and children. As someone with incredibly sensitive skin I find that some products can irritate and annoy my skin further, so when I come across an organic range that promises to be good to my skin I get quite excited to try it out.
Urtekram sent me a sample of their aloe vera shampoo, and their no perfume conditioner to try and see what I thought. The aloe vera shampoo is designed to give the hair lots of moisture, while the aloe vera provides gentle care for your hair, while the no perfume conditioner adds shine and softness while giving your hair extra care without perfume. After using both of these products my hair felt so incredibly soft, like softer than it’s ever felt before. My boyfriend even commented on how much he liked using the shampoo too, and he doesn’t normally notice when we change shampoo!
I also got to try out their no perfume hand cream, and rose scented soap. The rose scent is probably my favourite out of them all, it smells really sweet and fresh, and the soap itself foams gently and doesn’t feel drying like some soaps can do. The hand cream is from the no perfume range, meaning you don’t have a strong overwhelming scent like you can do with some other hand creams. Instead it’s full of goodness like shea butter, evening primrose oil, and almond and jojoba oil to help moisturise and soften the hands.
I really enjoyed trying out a few of Urtekram’s products, and I really like how they’re all full of good ingredients, and the majority of them are vegan too. I’ve never really thought much of using organic products, but after seeing the benefits of these ones I’m pretty tempted to invest in a few more.

Recently The Body Shop has brought out a new range; the Fuji Green Tea range. I don’t usually get that excited about The Body Shop’s new scent ranges, but this one really appealed to me. I’m a huge green tea fan, I drink about 8 cups a day of the stuff, and I just love how it tastes and smells. I couldn’t wait to stock up on their products, but one in particular stood out to me, the bath tea. I’ve never heard of bath tea before, or seen anything quite like it, so of course I had to pick one up at my local The Body Shop.
The fuji green tea bath tea comes in this pot for £12, which can seem a little pricey, but you get a lot of the bath tea for your money. As well as the bath tea I bought a bath infuser for £5, which is quite a bit for what it is, but I’m hoping The Body Shop will bring out my bath tea’s so I can use it again.
The idea of the bath tea is to fill your infuser with it, and leave it to brew in your bath like you would a normal cup of tea. When I first used it felt a little strange making tea in my bathtub, especially as I’m used to having huge bubble baths, but once I got into the bath it felt amazing. The whole bath smelt fantastic, and the green tea scent made it feel really calming, and a great way to relax. I’ve been enjoying using this in the evenings before bed, or once I’m back from my gym sessions, as it really helps to ease my muscles and calm me down before I go to bed.
I’m really loving the fuji green tea bath tea, and the whole range. I’ve stocked up on a few of the shower gels because the smell is just amazing. I’m really hoping The Body Shop brings out some more bath tea’s in the future, it’s such a great idea and makes for a novelty bath!
My hair is usually a mess, it’s super thick, curly, and frizzy, and nothing ever seems to tame it. For years I’ve been trying a range of products to try and tame it, so I can look somewhat presentable, but my hair always seems to stay frizzy. I’m a sucker for products that say they can help my crazy hair and give me super sleek locks instead, and over the years I’ve tried hundreds to try and find one. Sometimes I’ve managed to find a decent shampoo, or a treatment that can help with my frizz, but I’ve never found a complete set that has managed to help me.
For years I’ve been using a lady shaver to shave my legs, mostly because I’m completely terrified of cutting myself with a razor. One time when I was 12 I tried to shave my legs with a razor and managed to cut myself, there was blood everywhere. Oh god it was terrible. So since then I’ve stuck to my lady shaver, because there’s no way a clumsy person like me could hurt themselves. So when Veet sent me an alternative to try, that I couldn’t possibly cut myself on, I was looking forward to giving it a go.Read more
