PHB Ethical Beauty are a multi award winning beauty and skincare brand that hand-craft their range here in the UK. Their products are 100% natural, use organic ingredients where possible, are 100% cruelty-free and 100% vegan. I am very excited to be including not one..... but two of their products in the February Kissed by the Ocean box.
The first product is the Seaweed and Mint Skin Refresh Gel which is an extremely versatile gel and can be used for a wide range of skin treatments. The main purpose of the gel is to soothe, cool and heal the skin from ailments such as sunburn, heat rash and insect bites -- I recommend you take this with you on your holidays -- it would also be handy to keep in your handbag as it has a multitude of uses.
The main ingredients of this gel are Organic Aloe, Seaweed & Peppermint. This invigorating blend of botanic ingredients has a cooling effect on skin which refreshes & soothes while providing a rich combination of vitamins & minerals to keep skin soft & glowing. It hydrates and nourishes the skin after sun exposure & provides soothing relief for insect bites.
During these cold winter months, it can give your dry skin a burst of hydration as the Aloe Vera is fantastic moisturiser. If you spend a lot of time on your feet during the day at work (or out shopping!), rub a little bit of gel into the soles of your feel for instant soothing. Finally, it can also be used on your face so makes a great addition to your make-up kit.
The second product is the 100% Natural Lipgloss in the shade Grace. How could i have a 'Kissed' theme without anything for your lips? Grace is a warm and gentle light pink shade which compliments all skin tones and warms the complexion. Great for day time! It contains organic fair trade shea butter and jojoba oil to moisturise, protect and soften your lips. It's 100% natural, cruelty free and vegan. The light reflecting minerals give your lips a natural shine and as an added bonus it's non-sticky! It's also an award winner -- winning the Janey Lee Grace Beauty Awards 2014 for best natural lip gloss.
You can get BOTH of these amazing products in our February Kissed by the Ocean Box. The total box contents are worth over £65 - subscribe here
I'm a big fan of PHB Ethical Beauty and their ethics. PHB stands for Pure Handmade British. They are a family run business and make all their products by hand here in the UK. They have the world's largest range of ethical, cruelty free and vegan beauty and skincare products and a lot of their products are award winners too.
PHB also work to raise awareness about ethical issues within the beauty industry, such as animal testing, the use of animal derived ingredients, microbeads and palm oil, and their devastating effects.
At PHB, they strongly believe we should have the choice to use products that are better for our health, the environment and the welfare of animals. They believe we should have the choice to use products that are better and safer for our skin, and at the same time, make us feel good about ourselves.
PHB also donate 20% of their profits to charity. You can read more about the One Love Foundation here.
