Ylang-Ylang candle and Organic Eye Oil (Review+Giveaway) - CLOSED

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

I got a toothache, sob :(
And I got a rather bad mood too today..
But thanks to the Ylang-Ylang candle from Raw Gaia I can reduce my bad mood. Ylang-ylang has great calming qualities and it also helps to relax the nervous system and to help combat feelings of stress, shock, anger, fear and/or anxiety. Perfect!

It's a great big candle (which I love, perfect for decor too) and I also got myself Raw Gaia's Revitalising Eye Oil. I've always been wanted to try to use eye oil because at my age I think I should start treating the area around my eyes before it's too late.




The Revitalizing Eye Oil is great for nourishing, conditioning and repairing the delicate skin around the eyes, thanks to its high content of vitamins, EFAs, carotenes and antioxidants. It's made with organic cold-pressed oils of sea buckthorn fruit (that has amazing skin repairing and regenerative properties), jojoba (a natural humectant), rosehip (a skin hydrating and nourishing agent, rich in vitamin C and essential fatty acids), and grapeseed (has wonderful regenerative and moisturising properties).

I put this on every night after I clean my face and before I go to bed. I did notice that the area around my eyes are a little bit brighter in the morning, at least it doesnt look 'lumpy' and 'soggy' as it sometimes is. I think it would need a longer time to see the end result, but as for now I'm quite positive that it does give something promising for your eyes.
The only thing that I'd like to suggest is to put more detail in the bottle on how to use it, because it only says "use one drop per eye". I mean, with that instruction someone might have mistaken it for an eye-drop which it ISN'T. You have to massage the eye oil into the area around the eye.
I don't know whether it came with an individual box that contain some instruction on how to use it or not, because for this review I didn't get any box, just the products, but still... i think they should put more info on the bottle.

And as for the Ylang-ylang candle, I love how big it is! And it smells wonderful although it didn't let out a strong scent when it burned, so if you're into a soft and not over-powering scent then this is for you. It could last for 50 hrs burn time too so for £3.95 or $6.20 (there's a currency converter on their website) it's really worth the price. The candle is hand-made entirely from plant wax, coconut and sustainably harvested palm oils. They contain no animal products or petroleum-based paraffin wax. Yeay for earth-friendly products!

What I love most about Raw Gaia is the fact that they use only 100% Natural and Raw ingredients for 99% of their range. They don’t use any chemicals whatsoever so their products really are natural. They also don’t test their products on animals and will not use ingredients or suppliers who undergo animal testing, they are also registered with the Vegan Society. HOW COOL is that? I always appreciate companies like this :)

Raw Gaia has many variety of products from face and body care to baby moisturizer. From essential oils to superfoods. You might wanna check out these gift sets too, it's perfect if you wanna get a taste of Raw Gaia:


This Bath time heaven gift set is on my number one list. It's like relaxing in a chocolate orange bath. Your face smothered with Raw Chocolate Face Pack and then lathered up with sensuous Rose Geranium Raw Soap and finished with a delicious Raw Chocolate Orange piece melting in your mouth. How bout that?


Or maybe this Raw beauty gift set? This set include 100% organic moisturizer, cleanser, toner, and clay face pack to leave your skin feeling and looking clean, smooth and radiant.

Also on my list is this Palmarosa & Chamomile Sea salt & Bath soak:

perfect in helping you recover from a stressful day.


Do good while you shop:
If you buy any one of their ethically sourced incense sticks, the money from the sale will be contributed towards supporting the Sri Aurobindo Yoga Mandir Trust, situated at the base of the Himalayan Mountains overlooking the Kathmandu valley, which takes care of underprivileged and orphaned children .
