Did you miss my exciting news that I’ve been selected to be an Art of Organics Clean Beauty Insider? I was delighted to be asked as I’ve been a fan of their discerning curation of top notch natural and organic products that are effective, pleasing to the eye, and celebrate the joy of beauty rituals.
Another reason I’m a fan of Art of Organics is for the chance it gives me to try some of the best artisan brands from the USA that are hard to find over here. Prim Botanicals is one such company that I’ve been dying to get my mitts on so I was thrilled to find they were the star of this month’s box.
Prim Botanicals is all about lush tropical sensuality from the rich foliage illustrated packaging, to the intoxicating scents to the all natural, exotic and rare ingredients used.
Art of Organics August 2018 Clean Beauty Box: Sultry ~ Prim Botanicals
This month’s Art of Organics theme is ‘Sultry’ with two full-size products ~ The Body Oil and The Hair Oil ~ from Prim Botanicals to capture that end of summer vibe.
Yay! Firstly, I am an Oil Obsessive. Secondly, the timing couldn’t be more perfect as the recent British heatwave with record temperatures has meant it has been the first summer since I’ve lived in London (20+ years) that the word ‘sultry’ and ‘balmy’ could legit be thrown around! Sunshine is glorious but it does often wreak havoc on hair and skin. The two oils products are designed to breathe life back in to your body and locks.
Bonus points for the chic glass bottles which have a user-friendly nozzle that puts the oil exactly where you want it no random spraying. Metal caps mean the packaging is reusable and recyclable. Thumbs up.
Prim Botanicals The Body Oil (100ml, RRP $54)
The Body Oil grabbed my attention from the moment I read the ingredients list full of nourishing and repairing oils. I can’t recall another body oil with hazelnut oil as the top ingredient. It also contains one of my faves, camellia oil and wildcrafted Amazonian oils andiroba and pracaxi which are said to have healing and toning properties respectively.
Prim Botanicals The Body Oil has a very lightweight dry texture that sinks in very quickly, enrobing the skin like silk lingerie with a tantalising scent that lingers for hours. The subtle spicy floral fragrance, thanks to jasmine, rose and black pepper essential oils, makes you want to nibble or nuzzle.
Prim Botanicals The Body Oil Ingredients: Corylus Avellana (Hazelnut Oil), Camellia Oleifera (Camellia Oil*), Prunus Dulcis (Sweet Almond Oil*), Carapa Guianensis (Andiroba Oil), Pentaclethra Macroloba (Pracaxi Oil**), Proprietary Blend of: Jasminum (Jasmine Oil), Rosa Centifolia (Rose Oil), Piper Nigrum (Black Pepper Essential Oil*), Citrus Bergamia (Bergaptene-free Bergamot Essential Oil), Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary Essential Oil*)
Prim Botanicals The Hair Oil (60ml, RRP $44)
When you’ve got dry, textured hair like moi, oil is your hair bestie. I have read many a rave about the Prim Botanicals Hair Oil so couldn’t wait to try it. Alongside virgin coconut oil this contains camellia, moringa, black seed and marula oil, which nourish, repair and hydrate hair.
The Prim Botanicals Hair Oil has a rich texture and an alluring scent with a spicy edge rounded by orange zest and vanilla. Honestly hair washing can be such a chore but this oil makes the the whole (detangling) ordeal so much more of a pleasure. I like to use as a pre-poo treatment, often left in overnight or warmed up as a hot oil treatment. After washing my hair feels softer with smoother defined curls. It’s also great as a leave-in and to defrizz by running a few drops through damp hair.
