There is a brand new skincare and body care brand which has just been brought over to the UK, which is R&R Luxury, a brand founded on the philosophy of transforming one of nature's purest gifts - shea - into the most enriching beauty products. Shea Butter is in so many beauty products, and that is simply because it is one of the most moisturising and nourishing ingredients there is out there. R&R Luxury uses 100% natural Shea butter and other unrefined natural ingredients in all products, sourced directly from the Shea countryside of Ghana, West Africa, the only region in the world where the mythical Shea tree has been growing for thousands of years.
R&R Luxury is a very affordable brand, considering the wealth of ingredients used in their products and I was recently lucky enough to be able to try out a couple of them. Starting with the face and hair, we have the R&R Luxury Repair Oil (£20.00 for 80ml). The packaging is quite simple, and the Repair Oil comes with a push-down applicator so that you can easily use the product. Extracted from the Tree of Life, Pure Baobab Oil is the key ingredient here, and it is well-know for being ultra-moisturising and rich in antioxidants. Its natural protecting properties make it the perfect product for stressed out, dry, damaged skin and hair. Even though this is an oil, it doesn't feel heavy or greasy, and has a pleasant silky texture which I found dries into the skin pretty quickly without leaving any residue behind. You can of course use it in the hair, after washing the hair and before drying it, as a little treatment to the hair, and to help smooth down any frizz or flyaways. For the skin, I would recommend using it at night in place of a serum and then in the morning in the same way. Repair Oil is suitable for all skin types, and is going to help treat the skin and ensure it is in amazing condition.
Moving on to the body, and we have the R&R Luxury Serenity Shea Body Oil (£15.00 for 250ml). This product is available in different fragrances, and I chose Serenity as it contains Lavender, Bergamot and Ylang Ylang essential oils, and I especially love anything scented with Lavender or Bergamot as I find the fragrance very relaxing and it reminds me of being in a spa. This luxe oil is 100% natural and is once again suitable for all skin types. As with all natural oils, they can solidify in colder temperatures, so sometimes you just need to pop this in your bath water for a couple of minutes before you apply to the skin, as this will then loosen it up. The Serenity Shea Body Oil comes in a large bottle, and again has a push-down applicator for easy distribution. It smells absolutely heavenly, and if you have any kind of dry skin, this is going to nourish it and get it feeling so much better. This kind of product reminds me of a hug for the skin, with such a luxurious feeling, and due to the formula and texture of the Oil, you only need a small amount as a little goes a long way. Along with the body, this can also be used on the hair, but only use a tiny amount as it is effectively just Shea Butter and essential oils. I love to use this on an evening after I have taken a bath, as the scent calms me down, ready for sleep and I know I am going to wake up in the morning with super silky soft skin.
