NaturalU for a more natural you

Hey eco babes!

Long time no blog! I have been so busy but I am finally back with another review.

Lately, I've been trying out some body balms. What I love about body balms is that they are so compact and versatile too.

The balms I've been using are by a brand called Natural U. Started by two mums looking for a remedy for their dry and itchy skin, Natural U provides natural and organic (certified by the Soil Association!) skincare products that come in such adorable little glass jars.

Catherine, one of the founders, kindly sent me each of their two products to try. They are the All Purpose Balm and the Daily Body Rub.

The All Purpose Balm (from £9.99 for 30g) is simply that - a balm for whatever needs moisturising. And my lips are definitely in need of some extra moisture! What I like to do is to use it on my lips and whatever is left on my fingertips I use on dry areas of my face. It's incredibly light so I didn't experience any breakouts.

One of my favourite things about this balm is the yummy smell. It has a light smell that reminds me of sweets. I'm guessing that comes from the manuka in its formula.

Another product in the range is this Daily Body Rub (from £10.50 for 30g). The Daily Body Rub is very similar to the all purpose balm but it is also described as being great for soothing tired muscles thanks to the eucalyptus, peppermint and tea tree oils. The smell is quite delicate so I'm not sure how it would work on very sore muscles but the scent is calming when massaging into your skin after a stressful day.

I hope you enjoyed reading my review. If you want to find more about the brand, visit the Natural U website, where you can find all of their products. You can take advantage of their 2 for £15 deal when you buy each of the 30g jars. They also have trial sizes for only £2.99 each.

Do you use body balms? Let me know your thoughts :)
