Willow Organic Beauty Butterfly Duo Review – My Family Ties

English, Ethical and Effective

What drew me to use Willow Organic Beauty products initially was their ethical approach to producing natural and effective products. They are soil association certified, not tested on animals and are all free from parabens, mineral oils and sulphates and contain organic natural ingredients to work with your skin to target your main concerns.  

Willow Organic Beauty have such strong ethical integrity that they have refused to move into the Chinese market place due to the fact if they did they would have no choice (as Chinese legislation insists) but to test on animals. This is not an option for Willow Organic Beauty as they are stedfast in their beliefs (not to test on animals) and have gained unwavering respect for this choice.

Butterfly Wash & Lotion Set

The Butterfly Hand Wash and Lotion set is beautifully presented and arrived wrapped carefully in pretty pink paper, both products in the set are 250ml and have handy pump dispensers which makes them easier to use to get just the right amount as well as being much more hygienic. From the Butterfly Range the duo really are a special set and I am looking forward to trying out more products from the range as the scent is beautiful, floral without being overpowering with pretty hints of Jasmine, Rosehip and Sweet Orange Oil a decadent and Summery combination.

It’s always useful to have a set of hand wash and lotion from the same collection to avoid fragrances clashing and the sleek containers that they are housed in look really striking together.  Having the hand lotion next to the hand wash together is really useful as it reminds me to give my hands some much needed attention and hydration. 

The hand wash is easy to use with it’s pump dispenser, smells beautiful and leaves your hands feeling clean and fresh, without that squeaky soapy feeling some hand washes give you. Follow this with the hand lotion, which absorbs quickly with no trace of tackiness and it will leave your hands soft and smooth and lightly scented.  A little goes a long way and you only need a pump of each every time you use them giving excellent value for money. I would love to see a handbag friendly version as I really value the fact that it absorbs so fast, and for me this means that I use it more frequently throughout the day giving me softer, smoother hands.

Both the Hand & Body Lotion and the Hand & Body Wash have Rosehip, Sweet Orange OilJasmine and Barbary Fig combined to produce a heavenly scent that lasts and lasts but is not too overpowering.  Barbary Fig (also known as prickly pear) is native to Mexico and known for it’s potent anti-ageing properties and as it is 150% richer in essential fatty acids than Argan Oil it’s no wonder that it has been included to nourish and hydrate within the range.

Hydrating, as the Barbary Fig is rich in Vitamin E, and packed full of a host of anti oxidants to protect and nourish, with Rosehip to heal, Jasmine to relax a hint of Sweet Orange Oil to invigorate and refresh leaving your hands clean, fresh and smelling beautiful. 

At £19.00 each, both products last a long time and would make an ideal gift for someone special, I can see why Willow Organic Beauty has such a loyal following from their ethical approach to skincare, and products packed with essential, organic, natural yet powerful ingredients, it’s certainly a brand that I will come back to as I have had great results with these two natural organic products.

    I receive their catalogue & have tried a few samples which I did love but have never taken the leap & actually ordered full size products before. I might try the handwash & lotion first as my hands could do with some good stuff on them as they are a mess! I love the fact they have such strong ethical values.

    • July 8, 2015 / 3:43 pm

      It's a lovely gift set and with such an ethical company it only gives you more confidence in using their products too. Let me know how you get on if you buy some products from them Ali 🙂
