Natural Beauty at Urban Retreat Boutique


I’ve been pretty lucky with my skin when I consider the dreadful things I’ve put it through over the years.  I didn’t have acne or problem skin as a teenager and thought the whole skincare routine (cleanse, tone, moisturise) was a little boring.

I used water and a muslin cloth for most of my 20’s and 30’s which probably worked just fine at that age.  However, combine late nights, sometimes not taking my make-up off at all (I know!) and age, of course and its a skin which is now in need of good treatments and nourishing products.

Help is here and luckily for me it doesn’t consist of drastic routines and chemicals. Introducing luxury beauty site, The Urban Retreat Boutique.

April is Natural Beauty month at Urban Retreat which means a means a focus on the best natural skincare available from around the globe.  They invited me to test some leading natural products, so here’s my top natural products for you to try.

1/ DELAROM – Hydrating Balancing Aroma


The best smelling facial oil I’ve ever tested! This Neroli flower face oil from French brand DELAROM absorbs beautifully into the skin like velvet, smells divine and makes your skin look like you have had a facial.  I cant stop using it!

2/ Leonor Greyl – Shampooing Sublime Meches


Those clever Parisians are at it again! This natural hair care range has been developed over 40 years using only natural, pure products.  The shampoo for highlighted hair restores colour and shine, it smells beautiful and you feel like you’ve given your hair a holiday.


3/ Douvall’s Argan Bronzing Oil


Argan Oil with a golden brown shimmer, apply it to your body for a spring glow. Its also a nourishing moisturiser.



This miracle in a pot infuses probiotic and peptide technologies.  I wont pretend that I know what that means, I can tell you that it feels amazing on the skin and uses chamomile, eucalyptus, rosemary and bergamot. Sensational!

5/TAN ORGANIC – Self Tanning Oil


This product is an all rounder, unlike any other self tans I’ve used it smells good, its organic and it moisturises.  What’s not to like!

Also worth a mention, check out Antonia Burrell moisturiser, rahua rainforest grown shampoo and conditioner and Cosmetic 27 balm & oil.

Hope you like them as much as I do,
