Let's get Naked!

So it's no secret that I, along with a lot of bloggers, get approached by cosmetics companies to try new products. Half of which never make it past the cruelty free issue. However, this range by Naked Bodycare caught my attention simply because of its 97% natural ingredients slogan, in case you're wondering the 3% unnatural ingredients are things which keep the products going off, I guess I could try putting them in the fridge but how annoying would that be half way through your shower if you forgot to get them!

So I thought I would give four products a go:


Intensive Hair Repair Treatment. Who doesn't like a treat for their hard working hair? A thick cream that is combed through wet shampooed hair and left for a few minutes before rinsing out. I would say that it is just as good as any of the others I have tried. It is hard for me to judge as my hair is not coloured, dry or treated etc... but my hair and scalp felt moisturised. A convenient sachet means that if I am treating myself at the gym, I don't need to carry loads of bottles. One sachet will last me perhaps two or three uses is I use frugally, or one big generous use!

I have five extra sachets which I will be giving away on my YouTube channel shortly, so stay tuned if you'd like the chance to win one!




Gorgeous Curls Curl Taming Cream, I have very fine hair which makes curling a pain because it doesn't take much for the curls to go all fluffy and frizzy! My hair dresser told me to use a cream rather than a serum or spray as it adds weight and holds the curls for much longer. I have to say that this was the gem of the products I tried and I will certainly be repurchasing this when it runs out. It was a bit of a trial for me as I haven't used a cream to curl my hair. It's a thick and silky feeling cream that coats the hair from root to ends. I tried it first with velcro rollers, no joy there as the curls didn't hold. With heated appliances however (like blowdrying with a roller brush or curling tongs) it is a completely different and better experience. I used my good old dependable Braun Independent gas powered curling tong. I would recommend these to anyone, I have had mine for about 5 years and it's brilliant! No fiddly wires, it's lightweight and the gas cartridges last ages and are cheap to replace. So anyway, I was left with effortless and bouncy curls that have lasted all day and by the evening they were loose and wavy but still very much in place. A day later the curls are still evident and a quick comb through and they still look nice. Curl them tight and they will fall out gradually and naturally. I don't know how this compares to other curling creams but I am happy enough to have found a cruelty free and widely available brand that I can buy from Boots the Chemist.

Sugar Maple Quick Fix Face Mask. I even tasted a bit of this to see if it really was maple, I don't recommend it however as it's not like the syrup you might put on pancakes! It does smell of maple syrup which after a short while I got used to. Maple syrup is supposed to be good for the skin as it contains fruit acids which gently peel away dead skin, I think I would have to use this a few times to see any real change to my skin. The biggest bonus for me is that I suffered no allergic reaction to it and it felt lovely and cooling for the five minutes I wore it. It was easy to remove as it doesn't dry to a chalky mess. The single use sachet was more than enough for three applications, there was no way all of it could go on my face as it has a very runny consistency just like maple syrup.

Heaven Scent Rose Body Wash (smells like Turkish Delight, yum!). I am using this every day as I love the smell, it's natural and gentle frangrance is soothing and girly. It reminds me of some talcum powder I was given when I was 5 which was Boots English Tea Rose, I adored it. The shower gel lathers well and doesn't dry out my skin. My husband doesn't like turkish delight but this might just tempt him enough to try it :)
