Organic Beauty Week
As Organic Beauty Week continues until 25 September, I’m reviewing another great organic beauty product from Big Green Smile. (They also have some great special offers to celebrate Organic September.) Following on from yesterday’s review of Odylique by Essential Care Ultra Rich Balm, today I tell you about Bentley Organic Calming Body Lotion with Lavender & Chamomile.
The lotion comes in a no-nonsense, plain white plastic bottle which can be recycled in my household recycling collection.
- Made with 94% organic ingredients
- Certified organic by the Soil Association
- Free from parabens
- No SLS/SLES
- Free from petrochemicals, benzoates, phenoxyethanol and alcohol
- Made in England
Be a Shade Greener verdict: Bentley Organic Calming Body Lotion with Lavender & Chamomile
Bentley Organic Calming Body Lotion with Lavender & Chamomile is a light moisturising lotion which is an excellent daily body moisturiser. It’s non-greasy and quickly absorbed. It has a very subtle lavender fragrance and I particularly like to use it in the evening as a post-shower body lotion due to the calming and relaxing combination of lavender and chamomile. Some reviewers find it perfect to use on their babies and children.
This is a brilliant price for an body lotion with 94% organic ingredients as it costs just over £5 for a large bottle which makes it very economical.
I know lavender and chamomile aren’t for everyone, but you don’t have to miss out as it’s also available in another fragrance, see Bentley Organic Balancing Body Lotion with Lemon & Pomegranate.
If your skin needs something more intensively nourishing for dry skin patches, then I recommend Odylique Ultra Rich Balm
Directions – how to use
Just squeeze the tube to dispense. For a natural product this has a good expiry date as you have 12 months to use after opening.
