Olivina Bath and Body - Honeysuckle rose

Olivina - Napa Valley is a natural bath & body company created by Susan Costner-Kenward inspired by her lifestyle in the Napa Valley. Olivina's main ingredients are hand-pressed anti-oxidant olive and grape seed oils. Besides that, the Olivina products contain nourishing extracts such as chamomile, shea butter, honey, avocado oil, aloe vera and many more.

Her new range called the Honeysuckle Rose includes Body Butters, Hand Cremes, Scented Soaps, Hand & Body Lotions, Hand & Body Washes and Bubble Baths.

We have below a scented candle, a scented soap and a Hand & Body lotion from the Honeysuckle rose range.

Starting from my favourite product, the Honeysuckle Hand & Body Lotion (£17.95). A humongous 500ml container with a pump dispenser is what I just needed. I usually skip moisturizing my hands and arms every morning because I don't much like the idea of dipping my hands in tubs of body creams whilst I am in a hurry. This baby now stays on my dresser and one pump before leaving home is just enough to moisturise both hands and arms.

It smells so soothing and delicious I just cannot resist it - a blend of honey and rose is what I can make out of it. It penetrates the skin very quickly and provides just the right amount of hydration that stays pretty well.

Packaged sleekly, I would highly recommend this product. It may seem a steeply priced one but the quantity you get will last you more than you can imagine.

The Honeysuckle rose Scented Soap (£9.95) is a delight to use! It contains Olive oil, Honey and Shea butter that keeps skin smooth without drying it out. Their triple-milled vegetal soaps come placed in a cute pink case. Just like all their product this one does not disappoint too and is a gorgeous treat when you are in mood for some self-pamper.

What came first to my mind looking at its elegant packaging was what a lovely gift this would make for someone! Obviously not on its own but as a part of a hamper.

Honeysuckle Rose Scented Candle (£26.50) - "Our clean burning Olivina candles are the perfect complement to a bit of pampering. Using a 95% Soy wax blend, our scented candles will burn evenly for around 50 hours creating a delicately scented atmosphere."

Again the smell is just as delicious just like the rest of the range. It's great to create a warm and cozy atmosphere in the absolutely confused weather we have these days. I like to keep this where I spend most of my time - in my dressing room.

Again their adorable packaging makes me want to get another of these babies to give out as present. Would make an awesome treat for those candle lovers out there. Apologies as I completely forgot to take pictures of the candle in action! You can check it out on their website though.

and we have some samples from the other flavours that Olivina makes, like fig, olive, mayer lemon and lavender. My favourites were the fig and mayer lemon as for some reason I adore such unusual frangrances. The Olive body butter is however the most moisturizing of these little fellows.

I will be trying out their Fig and Olive range soon. I am a sucker for Luxury Bath and Body products and love to splurge out on these, as they make a lovely treat for the body which I usually ignore, so I try to make it up by using high end products.

You can have a look at their range here. Besides that you can find this range at Conran Shop, Liberty, Shop at Bluebird and retailers nation-wide.
