I have recently been in contact with the lovely people from Organyc beauty. They kindly sent me out some products to review:
You may or may not know that this coming week (15th-21st May) is Organic Beauty Week. I love to use organic/well known products especially when it comes to things I use on Darcie. This way I can be assured that there is nothing nasty going on to her delicate little skin. This is one reason I was excited to try Organyc. Organyc are also certified vegan and 'eco cert' certified too.
So I will start with these Organyc beauty cotton wool pads:
The first thing I want to do is give a big thumbs up to the packaging design. I love the fact you can open these 2 different ways. You can even open them from the top and use the handy drawstring close. Your second option is that you can open them from the bottom and use the packet as a handy dispenser. I tried opening from the bottom and they don't all fall out you can pull one round pad out at a time. A bit about how the packaging is made:
'The packaging is made with renewable raw materials, and it is biodegradable and compostable.'Overall the perfect packaging.
Moving on to the cotton wool pads themselves. They are made of 100% organic cotton and have 70 cotton wool round pads in a pack. Honestly, I couldn't fault them. The first thing I tried with these was to take my nail varnish off. They are tough and did not break into pieces like others I have tried. These would 100% be perfect for removing makeup. They are lovely and soft and have an 'embossed side for gentle and deep cleaning'. This is great so you can get 2 uses out of one product. The quilted side does all the hard work of removing makeup, whilst the other is smooth to carry out the rest of your skincare routine.
These are £2.49 a packet and you can buy them here.
Another thing I received were these cotton wool balls:
The Organyc cotton wool balls come in a pack of 100. These are £2.59 a pack and you can buy them from here. Again the packaging is great and has a drawstring top to easily close the packet and store them. They are very soft and can be used for a variety of different tasks. I have also given these the job of removing nail polish (I think this is one of the toughest jobs for cotton wool, as the majority of the time they break). I thought that these were going to break and leave trails of cotton wool all over my nails. Much to my surprise they didn't. They were tough and I managed to get one hand of nail varnish off with one cotton wool ball! These would also be good for taking makeup off and for applying your skincare products. Not only that but, they are soft enough to be used with water and on a babies bottom. If I was still using cotton wool and water on Darcie I would love to use these because of how strong they are! These are also 100% organic cotton and have the same style packaging as the cotton wool pads above.
Another thing I received were these cotton wool buds:
I have a new favourite cotton bud! I love these! One obvious thing I use these for is to clean up my ears. They don't bend, they are not to big, the cotton wool hasn't come off in big tufts for me, they've been just brilliant! I would love to use these to tidy up any makeup mishaps as well. Again made with 100% cotton. They have designed the packaging well on these as well! They have a handy open bit at the front to turn the box into a dispenser. You can even tuck it back in again to keep them all neat and tidy. These are £2.69 a packet and you can buy them here.
The last thing I received were the Organyc sweet caress baby wipes:
I am really, really fussy with baby wipes. One reason is because I am using these wipes on my delicate babies skin, the last thing I want as a parent is for a wipe to harm her. Secondly, I don't have time to be fussing with wipes that break, I can't get out of the packet properly or if a wipe doesn't clean up properly. These wipes are tough, clean up good and after using the couple of wipes on the top they pull out easier. The wipes are not to wet and they are not to dry either. They also clean that left over bit of nappy cream up well as well. We are still new to using these, but so far so good. I have no complaints about these. They come in a packet of 60 and are made with organic cotton and formulation. The wipes have extracts of camomile and calendula. I also love the smell of these, they smell so refreshing! The wipes are £5.29 a pack and you can buy them from here.
