I know I’ve already blogged about The Blue Lemon but I have to share more about them. I am so impressed with their product range and sweet smelling soaps that I now own at least 5 of their products which I use religiously.
I’ve already mentioned that are 100% natural, no animal fat only vegan based ingredients and believe me, it’s amazing what you can do with shea, avocado and coconut!
I was invited to visit Jenny and Jorg at their ‘kitchen’ in Hatton Country World, to see just how they made ALL (yes every single one!) of their products. It’s a cute little set up attached to the back of their shop, almost like what you get in a restaurant or cafe ; stainless steel surfaces, sink, shelves stocked with ingredients and pots and pans. This is fitting as Jorge (one of the owners) used to be a chef so is well accustomed with creating his own recipes and bringing his creations to life!
Whilst I was there, Jorg was making some face wash. Lye, coconut oil and olive oil were expertly mixed together to form the base. Essentials oils are then added to suit the product it will end up being. It’s all tested (on humans!) and the very first product Jorg made was around 5 years ago. Being a chef he had developed sensitive skin and certain ingredients irritated this, he thought he’d give making his own soap a go and The Blue Lemon has grown organically from that.
Jenny and Jorg have a product range spanning soap and bath bombs to gentlemen’s shaving balm (which my hubby uses and loves!) to face scrubs and clay face masks to creams and potions for your entire body.
Jenny gave me a sample of the clay face mask to try. This is genius, its actual ground down clay particles (three different types for different skin) which you mix with an essential oil based water to form a paste. You paint it on with a nifty paint brush, holding your hair back with a lovely head band you receive as part of the pack, wait 10 minutes wash it off and it leaves you with THE most soft and clean feeling skin. I also had the night serum to try which as I understand is a bit of a cult product and sells out very quickly. I totally understand why! After a week of continuous use my skin has never been so bright and clear. I was chatting to a lady about The Blue Lemon the other day and she declared that she also used the night serum!
Watch this space as these guys are going to big! Natural ingredients, expertly combined together = perfectly soft smooth skin whether it be your face, feet, body or hands.
