Ancienne Ambiance Luxury Soap…

Hey lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I have not use a bar of soap to wash with for quite a while, the last soap I did use was one by Dove, I loved it for being gentle on my skin and not drying, although I never used it on my face! I have since been lucky enough to try some stunning soap from Ancienne Ambiance, who have a beautiful boutique in Chelsea Green, London. Selling not just luxury bath and body products, but candles and room fragrance, and exclusive Niche Perfume. I have reviewed a candle from Ancienne Ambiance just about Christmas time last, year the review is HERE if you would like to check it out. I’ll leave a link to the boutique website at the end of this post.

The Ancienne Ambiance luxury soaps are just that! They are free from  parabens, and they are full of all the skin kind ingredients including Shea Butter and natural fine quality fragrance. These soaps did not strip my skin. The lather is really creamy and after using one for simple hand washing I found that my hands didn’t feel dry or crepey. I have been using the Lavender fragranced soap for bathing, although I shall bring you more on that soap in another post. The three I have for you today are Damask, Jasminum and Amandula.

Let me tell you about Damask. This is a very Rose fragranced soap although not a heady scent it’s quite subtle.

All bars are 100g in weight and this one being a Rose scented is a pretty pink colour. After I used it for the first time and left it on a soap dish, when I went back into my bathroom I could smell the fragrance later on.

This is my favourite of all the three soap bars I’m sharing with you today, this is Amandula, quite simply Almond milk in it’s most luxurious form.

The Almond milk in this soap bar is great for nourishing the skin as well as smelling amazing! The soap is white with an Almond colour running through the middle. It’s really delightful. Again my skin didn’t feel dry and tight after using.

Now Jasminum, obviously it’s fragranced with uplifting Jasmine, said to be the “Queen of Flowers” As with all these gorgeous soaps it’s packaged in signature packaging with the black and gold branding.  All Ancienne Ambiance packaging can be put into household recycling or taken to your local recycling centre.

This Jasmine fragranced soap is pure white and will compliment any colour scheme of bathroom. This is another soap that when it’s laying down in the bathroom it just scents the room. All of the Ancienne Ambiance soaps are suitable for the face as well as the body. I have used the Lavender one on my face which I will tell you more about in another post, so I hope you will come back for that.  Ancienne Ambiance does not test any products or ingredients on animals and won’t work with suppliers who do, which is a big YAY from me!

If you would like to check out these beautiful soaps and more, you will find them HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today lovely people.

Australian Bodycare Tea Tree Oil Skin Wash

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

I have wanted to try the body wash from Australian Bodycare for ages. I first saw it on QVC shopping channel a few years ago and thought then that it was right up my street. I was recently sent a tube of the Australian Bodycare Skin Wash to try, and for sure I wasn’t disappointed!

The Australian Bodycare skin wash contains  2% Tea Tree Oil. There are 110 varieties of Tea Tree Oil, and this one contains the Melaleuca alternifolia variety which does have the most beneficial natural properties of them all. It has neutral ph balance and is kind to even sensitive skin, while being antiseptic and deep cleansing for the body without stripping the skin of natural oils leaving it dry.

To give the skin wash a proper trial and because I don’t have a shower only a bath, I used only water when I filled my bath I didn’t add any of my bubble baths or bath bomb, I also used a clean bath puff (those net scrunchie thingy’s) I wanted to use it completely on its own. I squeezed a small amount into the bath scrunchie, and you really don’t need a lot, I cleansed myself in the usual way and rinsed. This body wash feels so cooling on the skin when I was using it, which has been lovely during the hot muggy weather we’ve been having in the UK. My skin feels so fresh and clean, clinically clean to be honest, there was no dryness, my skin wasn’t flakey at all, and for the skin issues that I do have on certain areas of my body it soothes it so it’s not itchy or sore, and because I’ve been using my body wash from Australian Bodycare every day that issue is almost clear. I need to get myself a full size, I’m finding it amazing and just what I need. Yes it does smell of Tea Tree but it subsides and doesn’t interfere with any fragrance I am wearing.

There are 3 sizes of body wash starting at 100ml then 250ml then 500ml which you can get HERE. Check out also the other products in the Australian Bodycare range HERE. I wouldn’t mind trying the Lavender!

Until next time

Bomb Cosmetics Birthday Gift…

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty my lovelies!

It was my birthday last week and one of the presents that Mark gave me was a gift set from Bomb Cosmetics, a box of wonderful fragranced bath goodies. This is the Love Cloud Gift Pack.

I haven’t used any of the products yet I’ve been waiting for Mark to take photo for me, but having used Bomb Cosmetics in my bath before I know they are all worth waiting for! I’ll do a more in-depth review as I use them, so for now here’s what I shall be luxuriating in when I have my baths. Let me start with top left the cute little Twinkle Star Bath Creamer, next is the Flight of the Frangipani Bath Blaster, next is another bath blaster the Pink Lady Bath Blaster, in the center there, looking like a cute little cupcake is the Button Moon Bath Mallow, finally there is the fabulous Jack the Rippler Soap! Bomb Cosmetics soaps are actually my favourite out of all the products I’ve tried from the brand, the fragrance lasts such a long time on the skin, and not at all drying either.

The whole of this Love Cloud gift set I believe is fruit based fragrances, and some of the products do have “bits” in them which to be honest with you kind of freaked, me out as woman, if you get what I mean (*wink*) but what I actually do so that I don’t sit in these bits is use an old plastic sieve. I pop the bath bomb into the sieve then swish that around in the water so that the bath bomb dissolves but the bits remain in the sieve and I’m still getting a beautifully fragranced and luxurious bath.

Okay I’m off to run a bath! You can check out this gift set and loads of other beautiful Bomb Cosmetics products HERE. Thank you for stopping by today.

CALCOT MANOR “The Lazy Evening” GENTLE SALT SCRUB…..

Welcome back lovely people! 

I do love a nice salt scrub, especially if it originates from a spa, as this one does. This one is by Calcot Manor which is a country spa retreat and their products are sold in Tesco. 

IMG_3240

This salt scrub is The Lazy Evening Gentle Salt Scrub. It contains sea salt to exfoliate and smooth, and sweet almond oil to soften and hydrate. It also smells amazing too. After using, my skin felt soft smooth and moisturised and if I didn’t want too I needn’t have applied a body cream, but I did because that’s what I prefer.

(When I used this I applied it onto dry skin, including my feet and then rinsed off in the bath, we don’t have the shower working at the moment)

The packaging is lovely too, it looks like a “kilner” jar although it’s plastic, but it looks nice on my bathroom shelf. The product itself feels lovely, creamy almost gel like. The sea salt within it is of the fine texture and isn’t harsh when scrubbed onto the skin, it doesn’t scratch like some salt scrubs can. This is a lovely salt scrub and I’m enjoying using it. So if you’re shopping in Tesco pop one in your basket or you can buy online HERE  it will only set you back £3.99 which is a bargain for such a lovely salt scrub!

THIS PRODUCT IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

Thanks for reading lovely people.

Last Champneys Reviews…..Bloguary Day 6!

It’s bloguary day 6, almost a week into my own personal challenge!

So this is the last two Champneys Spa Treatments products to tell you about. I have today a hand cream and a bathing milk.

SKIN COMFORTING BATHING MILK 300ml.

IMG_6457

I had never used a bathing milk in my bath before using this gorgeous product, and as I poured it into my bath under running water I thought I was still going to get bubbles, but I didn’t! ( Well it was slightly bubbly) but my oh my the fragrance just filled the bathroom. Amazing! It’s quite a thick consistency which adds to the indulgence, I did have to swish around in the water to disperse the product. The fragrance within this bathing milk is geranium and cedarwood, with sweet almond oil, chamomile and wheatgerm extract to soothe and moisturise dry skin. After bathing, my dry skin felt very soothed and didn’t feel so dry and it appeared to be glowing. Love love love this bathing milk, it really is what it says it is SOOTHING!

HAND AND NAIL CREAM.

IMG_6461

Champneys just get their products so right when it comes to fragrance, this hand cream smells amazing! With sweet almond oil, bergamot, citrus oils and chamomile. It feels very nourishing because it’s quite a thick consistency. It contains Vitamin A, Vitamin E and Pro-Vitamin B5 which helps to strengthen the nails and soothe the skin. There is also Vitamin C and liquorice extract which helps to reduce the appearance of age spots. I enjoy using this and it’s the one that I keep on my bedside table to use before sleep. I massage it well into the backs of my hands, palms and around my nails, and lastly into my nails, next morning they are hydrated and I can still smell the fragrance of the cream on my hands too! This is a very nice hand cream if you want a bit of luxury on your hands, it sinks in and isn’t sticky at all. I prefer that in a hand cream.

As I said when I started my reviews of my Champneys products, these were all in a beautiful gift set. You can purchase the products from Boots where there is a half price offer on selected products. Take a peek HERE.

Gosh, I am having so much fun writing reviews, do you want to see more reviews? Let me know in the comments.

See you tomorrow for day 7 of Bloguary.
