Hey everyone, how have you all been? ☺
(This post was actually scheduled to go up on Tuesday, but I don’t know why it didn’t go through 🙁 *sorry*)
The last few of weeks have been such a challenge, naturally, I had to take a bit of a break from the blog to focus on everything else. Before I’d feel guilty about taking a break, but one thing that I’ve been working on this year is not being such a workaholic. So far, I’m getting the hang of it!
In the mean time, I’ve been reviewing quite a few different products (which I can’t wait to share with you). This post in particular will be part of a series on an amazing 100% vegan brand – scroll down to read my first review of the Yaoh review series – Yaoh Body Butter Range.
Who are Yaoh?
Yaoh is based in Bristol, UK, and is one of the UK’s original hemp companies, with a range of hemp body care and food products that are 100% vegan, paraben-free, sulphate-free and free from animal testing. Yaoh’s food range is also 100% certified organic.
All the skincare range is made with organic hemp seed oil. The body butters are all £11.99 for 200g. Overall, I really do like the Yoah skincare range, the body butters and moisturiser are so buttery and smooth – perfect in this cold weather. There are plenty of options to choose from, so there’s something for everyone. And I like that the brand are quite neutral i.e for everyone.
Yaoh Body Butter Original
Made with a combination of Hemp Seed Oil to moisturise and rejuvenate the skin, with extracts of Rosemary, Lavender and Peppermint. Personally, I found myself using this more on regular basis, the lavender and peppermint extracts add a more floral and refreshing fragrance to the body butter compared to just the hemp seed oil – which I loved! My skin stayed smooth throughout the day, which is so important when the seasons change.
Yaoh Body Butter Coconut and Lime
Made with Organic Hemp Seed Oil with extracts of Rosemary, Lavender and Chamomile along with Coconut and Lime fragrance to create an invigorating and refreshing body butter. This was one of my favourite body butters, the smell is uplifting and again the body butter works well in keeping my skin smooth, it does eventually make you feel hungry after a while.
Yaoh Body Butter Tropical Fruits
Made with Organic Hemp Seed Oil with extracts of fruit essences to create a refreshingly fruity body butter. While this is a tropical fruit body butter, I actually liked the fact that the smells weren’t so strong with this one. Again the body butter keeps my skin looking fresh and nourished, and this one reminds me of summer. 🙂
Yaoh Moisturiser Deep Forest
The moisturiser is £6.99 for 56g. Made with Organic Hemp Seed Oil with Essential Oils and extracts to create an exotic moisturiser. I will be honest, the moisturiser was my least favourite, mainly because I prefer floral and fruity fragrances. But I must admit that I did like that the moisturiser is lightweight, and small enough to travel with. Like the body butters, the moisturiser lasts all day, the only real difference is that the body butters have a thicker consistency while the moisturiser is more lightweight.
Generally, I think it really depends on the kinds of scents and ingredients that you prefer in the products that you use, I would definitely recommend the brand. he best thing for me was that I didn’t have to use too much of the product for it to go a long way, and that the packaging is recyclable. Thank you to the lovely Yaoh team for sending me these products. ☺
In the next few weeks there’ll be some more reviews on the Yaoh range. So do let me know what you think!
