The Blend Collective Samples.

I received a rather exciting envelope last week, full of lovely Blend Collective samples. The Blend Collective is a company that specialises in Natural Bodycare, which of course is right up my street. They use gorgeous essential oils in their products, which are 99-100% natural. 

The Blend Collective do a range of different skin and body care, each in one of three ranges: The Enlivening Collection, The Balancing Collection or The Unwinding Collection.

The Enlivening Collection (blue packaging) - This collection has Sicilian Lemon, May Chang, Myrtle and Lime. This is a gorgeous refreshing scent, I love citrus so I'm very partial to this hand and body cream. It's smells very natural, as you would expect but really zesty too.

The Balancing Collection (green packaging) - This collection uses Star Jasmine, Geranium, Vetiver and Rose - to be honest I've never heard of some of these essential oils/scents but I certainly like them. This is really lovely, again very fresh and natural. I really like floral scents, so I enjoy using this cream - it's a very soothing scent, not as zesty as the first one. So if you aren't a fan of citrus, this is probably better for you.

The Unwinding Collection - This is Sandalwood, Frankincense, Cedarwood and Neroli - this is very different to the first two and was my least favourite scent. I love scents that are very sweet, and girly but this certainly isn't. If you love a woody based scent, this collection is certainly for you. 

The consistency of all of the creams, is gorgeous and soaks in really well and quickly. I know these little pots are only little testers but I love the convenience of plopping them in my bag and taking them to work with me. They are really handy to put in my pocket with my hand sanitzer too.

The hand and body lotion full sized (200ml) are priced a really reasonable £19, and I've just spotted on their website here that you can pick up lip balms, I will certainly be looking into this!

  1. I tried one of their creams at a show and thought it was the most greasiest thing I had every tried and I have very dry skin. I also wasn't a fan of the fragrance. Glad you are enjoying them :)

  2. Hi Sugarpuffish – we are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy our Hand Cream. Which one did you try? I’m not sure if you’re aware, but we also do a lovely Enlivening Hand & Body Lotion with Sicilian Lemon, Lime, Myrtle and May Chang, which has a lighter consistency and a fresh, zesty fragrance. If you’d like a few trial size samples, don’t hesitate to get in touch...
