If you’ve been following PaleGirlRambling from the beginning you’ll know I introduced you to the most amazing vegan, cruelty and palm oil free brand, Bloomtown back in April. I created a post all about their eco luxury gift sets. Ever since trying their products I’ve been hooked. Their sugar scrubs are my all time favourite body exfoliator! Bloomtown have now released ‘Beauty Baubles’* just in time for Christmas!
Can we please just talk about how stunning they are? I cannot wait to hang mine up on my Christmas tree (whenever I finally get it up!) You can purchase an individual bauble or a set of three. Each little bauble is reusable so as long as you store them carefully they can be used year after year and filled with new goodies each Christmas! There’s also two colour scheme options, the gorgeous plum shades I have or a navy set.
*Warning this post contains spoilers of what’s inside the Beauty Baubles so if you wish to keep it a surprise just head straight to Bloomtown and pick your colour.*
Each little bauble has one cruelty free beauty treat inside! The products in the plum set I received are ‘The Hedgerow’ scent. One that I hadn’t actually tried yet! ‘The Hedgerow’ products are all blackberry and honeysuckle scented. You get a sweet almond and shea butter sugar scrub, a roll on essential oil and a little berry flavour lipbalm.
If you have a particular range/ scent you’d like to try you can leave a note at the checkout when placing your order and Bloomtown will be happy to oblige. (‘The Meadow’ and ‘The Woods’ are two of my favourite scents!)
As I said above, Bloomtown’s sweet almond and shea sugar scrubs are my all time favourite exfoliators! None I’ve tried since have lived up to the standard. They’re gentle enough that they don’t irritate sensitive skin, something I really struggle with but coarse enough to removed all dead skin and leave skin baby soft. The sugar scrubs have an almost gel like consistency which makes them super easy to use in the shower and they leave the most beautiful natural scent. You will be hooked as soon as you try one!
Bloomtown’s roll on essential oils are a must have for everyone’s handbag! I personally always carry one in ‘The Meadow’ scent as its infused with Lavendar and really relaxes me. I’m so excited to now have ‘The Hedgerow’ too, it has a lovely fresh, almost summery scent that will be a great wake up or pick me up in the morning or throughout the day when you’re beginning to get tired. The oils can be rubbed on pulse points like your wrists or around your neck.
The final little treat in these baubles is a gorgeous berry lip balm. Who doesn’t need lipbalm at this time of year? I certainly know my lips are getting drier and drier the colder it gets! Bloomtown have worked super hard to make these lipbalms vegan but just as moisturising as their non-vegan counter parts and I think they’ve done an amazing job! I love the slight tint this gives your lips. You also have a avo-mint option if berry flavoured doesn’t appeal to you.
These Beauty Baubles are the perfect Christmas gift for those friends and family members who like to support cruelty free brands and a good cause. Bloomtown donate a percentage of their profits to environmental and animal rescue charities. A set of three baubles costs only £23!
If you’re considering going vegan HealthLabs.com have created a test to help you decide. The “Should You be Vegan” testing panels are designed for those considering veganism, who want to see if they’re experiencing unwanted side effects from a meat and dairy diet. This test will look for allergies that may be brought on by animal-derived food. Something I’m all too familiar with due to my dairy allergy! Many people experience pain, sluggishness, and discomfort after consuming meat or dairy.
