Bodhi + Birch Ylang-Ylang Incensa
Last week I published a post about the fantastic *Bodhi and Birch Mint The Temple Balm which I adore and I today have another post all about the natural, luxe brand Bodhi and Birch. I've tried a few products from them, including their lovely facial oils so when this package arrived, I was very excited! All of their products are so beautifully packaged and designed, they would make gorgeous gifts *yes, I'm thinking about christmas already*

I have the *Bodhi and Birch Ylang Ylang Insensa Body Moisturiser (£5.50, 50ml) which contains ylang ylang, neroli and pink peppercorn which combine to make the most relaxing, musky, autumnal scent possible. It is floral and sweet as well as being a warm, soothing and musky scent. When I smell the Ylang Ylang Insensa products it reminds me of cosy autumn evenings and halloween for some reason, maybe because it is so deep and musky but still feminine. Anyway, enough raving about the scent, the moisturiser itself feels like a lotion but it packs a punch of moisture like a body butter. It is perfect for the upcoming colder months or for dry skin types. I've been using it paired with the shower gel every other day as well as using it on my hands everyday. It absorbs fairly quickly and it leaves my skin very smooth, soft, moisturised and heavenly scented. If there was a fragrance/perfume of this scent, I would buy i immediately! Overall rating: ★, 5/5!

As mentioned, I also have the *Bodhi and Birch Ylang Ylang Incense Bath and Shower Therapy (£20, 200ml) which has the same notes as the gorgeous lotion. Bodhi and Birch products are cruelty free and free from parabens, sulphates, colourants, fragrances, animal ingredients, silicones and more which is fantastic. SLS or sodium laureth sulphate is a common lathering agent used in many beauty products although it can cause irritation and negative reactions, however it is the ingredient that makes your shower gels and shampoos so bubbly. This shower gel doesn't contain SLS but it lathers so well! The scent doesn't linger on the skin sadly but it is a fantastic, effective shower gel; also it doesn't dry out the skin like most shower gels. Overall rating: ★, 5/5.

Overall, I'm so impressed with both products and the scent is just heavenly and perfect for autumn! The packaging is simple but luxe. The body lotion has become a daily essential for me and I will be buying the full size when this bottle runs out. If you are looking for gorgeous, natural beauty gifts that are sure to impress or products to pamper yourself then look no further. 

Have you tried anything from Bodhi and Birch? What are your go to products/scents for autumn?

  8. These sound lovely! I do love a product that smells good when you use it - pity the bath & shower scent doesn't last long but I guess that's where the moisturiser comes in :) x
