  • I scream, you scream, we all scream for Angel Cream

    Alpha Dream Angel Cream

    I have to say I wasn't sure how this luscious new addition to the Alpha Dream range, Angel Cream, was going to compare to my all time favourite Supreme Cream.  You see, I'm a total sucker for anything with glitter in it and so Supreme Cream takes a lot of beating.

    With almost entirely edible ingredients, including cacao butter, coconut butter, monoi de Tahiti, hemp oil, aloe, MSM, jasmine, clary sage, ylang ylang and may chang. Angel Cream is a deliciously light and soft body cream suitable for those that want all the benefits of raw natural skincare but without the glitter...


    I find this cream very hydrating and great for dry skin.  I've been slathering it all over my legs and arms and my friend commented the other day I was feeling very smooth!  A little certainly goes a long way.

    The fragrance is very light and sweet and the only difficulty is trying to refrain from eating it!

    Alpha Dream Dragon Cream

    For a long time I was an avid user and proponent of a certain high-street cosmetics chain which prides itself on being luscious. I had a bad experience with them though, and while my remaining supply of face cream has been running lower and lower I’ve been searching for a replacement which is just as ethical, cheap, effective, and toxin-free – no mean feat, I have to say!

    So with that in mind, I have to say that the Alpha Dream Dragon Cream is, well, an absolute dream. It’s completely vegan and not animal tested; the ingredients are all-natural in the truest sense of the word – not a chemical in sight, the ingredients can actually almost all be found in my food cupboard with the exception of the essential oils; and it’s more effective by far than what I was using before; and it works out cheaper than the old! Can’t say fairer than that.

    So what’s it actually like then? First impressions are that the jar is small, and that’s true, but it’s packed full of great things, and a little of this stuff goes a long way. I’ve been using it every day for over a week now and you can barely tell it’s been used at all. The smell is amazing – cacao butter central – but not overpowering and once it’s been on for a minute the smell is gone, which is great if you’re using other scents or you don’t want to smell like a chocolate bar all day. Going on it feels quite greasy and at first that can be off-putting, but it sinks in very quickly and leaves no shiny residue all over your face, which is brilliant. The hemp oil with its Omega oils is great for your skin, especially dry skin, and the MSM provides sulphur which most people are severely lacking in – feeding your skin from the outside, essentially!

    I have to say I’m very, very impressed overall with this cream, it will definitely be a bathroom cabinet staple from now on!

    Alpha Dream Supreme Cream

    I am such a huge lover of Alpha Dream Supreme Cream, do you know why?

    Well, not only does it have some of the most gorgeous ingredients ever which include cacao butter (everybody loves cacao right?), coconut butter (best skincare ingredient on the planet), monoi de Tahiti (hydrating and protecting), hemp oil, aloe, MSM, rose oil and lavender oil, it also has GLITTER.

    I don't know about you but my day just doesn't go the same unless I've got a bit of glitter going on.  Glitter has been scientifically proven to make your day an extra 80% happier, 47% more likely to put you in your flow and 296% more likely to make you fall in love with everyone and everything you come in to contact with.*

    Seriously though, this cream is really super.  It melts beautifully on to your face/body (I put it everywhere), smells absolutely divine and does make you sparkle!  I love it!

  • hi bath time


    Last night I tried and tested the sumptuous hi bath bar, cos it was hi time for a hi bath!

    The website says: You are beautiful. You are loved. You are pampered…Our bath bar contains all the finest ingredients for a bath straight from heaven.

    When I opened the packet I immediately wanted to eat the bath melt.  That’s not anything to be alarmed about as the main ingredient in the bar is cacao butter – for it’s antioxident rich nature and Vitamin E.  The bar also contains clary sage essential oil to promote feelings of euphoria, and geranium for a floral scent.

    Pampered is certainly how I felt as I floated around (as much as you can float around in a medium-sized bath) immersed in rose petals and goji berries.  Kate’s idea to put gojis in this bath melt is ingenious!  The last ingredient is the purple corn which gives the water a lovely purple tinge for colour therapy!

    It does have a lovely scent and left my body lovely and soft – the way skin should feel!  The hi bath bar is very moisturising once fully melted, so much so I was able to shave my legs just with the luxurious oils in the water – too much information eh?

    For that reason I’d probably only use half the bar next time which is good because then you’re getting twice the value for your money!  The bar is very reasonably priced at £3.95 for 40g which is what you’d pay in somewhere like Lush for one of their bars but this one has all the benefits of raw, 100% natural ingredients and NO nasties!!

    A word of warning though: be very careful to make sure you clean the bath properly after using it.  The last thing you’d want is your husband getting in for a shower and falling arse over tit…or maybe you would like that
