Lil Miss Luxurious: Wild Body Care Review +

As a beauty blogger, I love experimenting with new products. A few weeks ago, a company called 'Wild' contacted me, and asked whether I would like to try their products. I jumped at the chance because the products had no nasty chemicals and were of Fair Trade produce.

I received a 'Romantic Soap with Shea and Marula'

The Low Down:
WILD soap is made from a unique blend of oils from Africa. With added coconut to help create a high lathering bar and pure essential oils that bring a soft fragrance to complement the body butter, our Romantic Soap will leave you enveloped in a heady mix of delicate and exotic flowers, ready for sweet nothings and words of love.

What is Marula?
Marula fruit is derived from the Marula tree (which is linked to romance, love and fertility). Marula is one of Africa's largest treasures. It is rich in minerals and vitamins; the oil is rich in antioxidants and oleic acid, which is an essential component for the maintenance of healthy skin.

Cocos Nuciferam, Helianthus, Citrullus, Adonsonia Digitata, Sclerocarya birrea, Calodendrum Capense, Butyrospermum Parkii, Canaga Odorato, Lavemdula Augustifolia, Pogostemon Cablin, Citrus Dulcis, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate, Farnesol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool

£5.25 for a 200g bar. Available from here

 What did you think?
Initially, I found the soap quite drying (soaps tends to be quite drying anyway), but after a few uses it felt very moisturising. I love how the soap does not have any parabens, SLS or other nasties. The smell of the soap is not what I usually go for (I usually go for sickly sweet scents), BUT it has essential oils such as lavender and Ylang Ylang which are great for your skin as well as your well being.

I also received a gorgeous body butter to match the soap!

The Romantic Body Butter with Shea and Marula

What did you think?
This is probably the best body butter I have tried. I have to admit, I love moisturising my skin! I go through tubs of body butter every month. The Wild body butter is very thick and rich. I only use a tiny amount to moisturise my body. This product is packed with essential oils, and the scent of lavender seems to stick out the most. I also LOVE the packaging - so pretty! It looks gorgeous on my dresser.

Can you see a heart in this picture? :P

 Aqua, Butyrospermum Parkii, Sclerocarya Birrea, Cocos Nucifera, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Glyceril Stearate, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Tocopheryl Acetate(Vit E), Canaga Odorato, Lavendula Angustifolia, Pogostemon Cablin, Citrus Dulcis, Phenoxyethanol, Caprlyl Glycol, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate, Farnesol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool

£14.50 for 170ml of product. The product is pricey, BUT it is very moisturising so a little goes a long way. The fact that the product is free from nasties AND is of Fair Trade produce justify the price. Available from here.

These products are perfect for Valentines day, especially with the addition of Ylang Ylang, which is known for its' aphrodisiac qualities ;)

 When you buy the products from the website, you will receive in a gorgeous bag made from African fabric.

 Note: Even though the products were sent to me for a consideration of a review, my opinion is super honest (as always!)


  1. I adore how you list the ingredients... your reviews are always so honest and informative =)

  2. The soap sounds lovely, I also find soaps to be quite drying but if followed with that body butter I bet your skin feels great! Absolutely love the fact that they are fair trade xx


I love reading your lovely comments, they make my day :)
