I never win anything! So, I was ecstatic to find out I had won the handmade organic night cream by British brand, GAIA Creams.
Look at how the cream is wrappped, with so much effort and thought...
This is MY cream, specially made for me, with my name on it. LOVE this element of the brand, the personalisation.
GAIA Creams state that they are 101% Organic, I didn't understand this, so I contacted the founder, who is the most lovely, honest woman she said this;
"My creams are 101% organic because one of my aims is to make people aware that there are no national nor EU regulations for natural and organic cosmetics and this means that cosmetic companies take advantage of this by putting sometimes as little as 1% of organic ingredients in their products.
101% means that my creams are truly pure and consist of only organic butters and oils of the highest quality.
"Organic" is not a trendy slogan to me. It's me and my life-style."
I didn't know that there are no EU regulations for organic cosmetics, so I wanted to share this with other beauty lovers.
As well as being Organic, GAIA Creams are also;
* Fair Trade
* Hand Crafted
* Only made to order
I ran out of my beloved Bioeffect serum a week after receiving my custom made Raw Night Cream, as soon as I dipped my spatula into the pot, I knew I would love this! I LOVE rich, buttery products (KORRES body butters, comfort zone D-age cream et al). It smells lovely and a little goes a long way. So, use it sparingly. If it didn't have a use by date, this pot would last me a year!
I have been applying this to my face (including eye area) and neck every night (apart from the odd one or two late nights) and my skin feels extra smooth and looks plump and clear in the morning, great base to apply my make up. I was so impressed that I recommended it to my sister, she has oily skin and wasn't convinced it would work for her...I WISH I had taken before and after pics, because she bought some on my recommendation and her skin is so clear! Even our laser lady commented on how clear Amina's skin looks and she is now also going to order some!
I love the story behind this brand, a woman's passion for perfect skin without intoxicating yourself and harming the environment!
