Munio Candela

Munio Candela Soy Wax CandleI have just bought the nicest-smelling candle I think I’ve ever bought and the bonus is that it’s a right Christmassy one too!

It’s a Munio Candela Mini Soy Wax Candle in the Cinammon scent and I can’t wait to light it to get me in the Xmas mood. It’s a 100% natural candle so you can be rest assured you won’t be polluting your house with sooty nasties! I’ve no idea how but the Munio Candela candles last loads longer than other candles the same size but they do! Read another review I did of Munio Candela Candles

On a cinammon theme, I bought a lovely cute Cinammon Soap in a stylish Christmassy tin by Scottish Fine Soaps. But do you know, I don’t think I’ve been so disappointed by a product in a while now. I assumed that it would smell gorgeous and be dead Christmassy but it smells really awful. It’s kind of medicinal and to be honest unpleasant – no cinammon whatsoever more ‘Eau de Hospital Toilets’! On a positive note in comes in a very attractive tin but as it stinks, I don’t think I’ll be giving this present to anyone this year. A definite ‘thumbs-down’ for this one I’m afraid!

Christmas SoapsBut from one duff soap to another which is quite the opposite. Aubrey Organics, who I’m a big fan of anyway, have produced a ‘luxurious bath bar’ in Rosa Mosqueta. There’s a subtle hint of rose when you open the pack but when you add the water, the rose scent is heightened and it’s really yummy. It’s a proper old-fashioned soap and is handmade using only natural and organic ingredients including 100% rosa mosqueta oil! Love it!

Another product I’ve recently started using from MyPure is their Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh Smoothing Daily Cleanser. That’s a mouthful and a half isn’t it?! It’s a gentle cleanser with coconut, blueberries and apple amongst other things in the ingredients list. It’s also got lemon peel in it which apparently helps to ‘…. sweep away dirt and grime while smoothing and brightening skin’s surface’. I usually splash warm water on my face and then massage the cleanser in. It doesn’t go all frothy like many cleansers with nastier ingredients but it doesn’t half make my face feel all soft and smooth.

In a nutshell, I'm a Mum to three gorgeous daughters and two step-sons who are gradually making their own lives and leaving Mr. C and I plenty of time to enjoy life just as a couple again. I'm a big fan of Afternoon Tea & Corrie and hate, with a vengeance, violence in films! I love reading 'proper' books though I concede that my birthday Kindle was brilliant on holidays.
