I don’t think you’re ready for this jelly. Being is too bootylicious for ya babe.
I’ve been sent three funky little products from Being, by Sanctuary Spa. You may have already seen the brand’s cute and eye-catching packaging in your local Boots store. There are five fruity and fresh fragrances in their range to choose from, and nine different products to enjoy at bath time.
Wait. Before I talk about the products; what makes them different to what is already on the market?
‘Being is a beauty brand with a difference – and a voice. We stand for something, and fall for nothing. We are ballsy beauty bottled, for every he, she and ze. We are pure perplexing deliciousness.’
The brand work with a charity called The Mix, which empowers and supports Gen Z with everything, ‘from mental health and sexuality, to girl boss advice and self-love’.
It’s nice to know a skincare brand has gone beyond their call of duty and genuinely care about their consumers – and guys, they’re against animal testing too! Absolutely everything is done with thought from the packaging to the fragrance combinations, I mean, even the e-mails were pretty!
So, the products – I’ve been testing out the Hibiscus and Coconut Water Body Wash; Cloudberry and Lychee Blossom Body Mist; and Chilli Mango and Tonka Bean Hand Cream. Other scents in the range include Salted Caramel and Macadamia Nut (ugh, gimme) and Lotus Water and Pomelo.
With summer in full swing, the dry weather can really dehydrate your skin and cause dryness; I get some bad patches on my fingers and palms which peel and become quite itchy. Before now, I’ve used a number of hand creams which I find hydrate my skin at the time of application, but even just an hour later they become more dry, leading into a vicious circle of dry skin becoming worse. This is 100% not the case with Being’s Chilli Mango and Tonka Bean Hand Cream. It’s a thick and creamy formula packed with exotic fragrance, making your hands silky smooth with mango and shea butter. So paint your paws, pamper your palms and be confident in your soft and down-right fabulous skin.
I swear that coconut is the cure for everything. Eczema? Coconut oil. Straw-like hair? Coconut mask. That’s why I’m totally in love with the Hibiscus and Coconut Water body wash. I find that it lathers really nicely on a loofa so you can have a really good scrub with it and enjoy the soothing feel of the foamy bubbles on your skin. Believe me when I tell you a little bit goes a long way! For me, this is the perfect summer shower gel with a blissful tropical scent that makes you feel like you’re on holiday and leaves you with a delicate fresh scent on your skin after your shower. I’m definitely going to be snatching up the Salted Caramel and Macadamia Nut body wash for the autumn and winter seasons; sounds perfect with a bubble bath and hot chocolate.
Lastly we have the Cloudberry and Lychee Blossom body mist. This 100ml bottle is a great size to fit in your bag for spritzing throughout the day. What I love is that it disperses really nicely so it isn’t concentrated in one area, but is rather dusted over your body and goes a lot further than your average perfume or body spray. It has a very berry scent which is light and fruity, not overpowering or chemically – I’ve never even heard of, let alone used, cloudberry or lychee blossom before, but I totally love it.
Other products in the range include bath bombs and bubble bath, luxurious body lotions and moisturisers, body scrubs and cute little wash bags. They can all be found at Boots both in store and online and are currently on 3 for 2 so stock up your bathroom quick before I buy it all!
