[Vines and Roots] Soothing Body Oil with Lavender and Neroli Review

Leave a comment

SGVegan was chosen as part of an exclusive group of talented beauty and lifestyle bloggers to test and review a series of green products from Vines and Roots.

The very 1st star product from Vines and Roots body range is…

Soothing Body Oil with Lavender and Neroli :)

SGVegan_Vines and Roots Soothing Body Oil

SGVegan_Vines and Roots Soothing Body Oil

The Soothing Body Oil contains only 100% pure plant extracts and organic essential oils (English Lavender and Rose Geranium) packed with many therapeutic active compounds. Neroli oil is a superfood (!) for the skin as it regenerates skin cells, promotes smooth skin and restores broken capillaries. This means it is particularly suitable for mature skin as it heals scars and stretch-marks.

Plus, its vegan friendly! No animals were harmed for beauty ^-^

So, I decided to try it on the boyfriend as seen from the photo above.

He just ran 10km and had a shower (recommended to apply after a shower or bath).

I noticed he has some really visible capillaries beneath his skin. Probably the result of training for the upcoming 42km Standard Chartered Marathon.

As you can see from the before/after pic, right after the Soothing Body Oil is absorbed into the skin, I noticed that the capillaries are not so visible.

Plus, the Soothing Body Oil absorbs really rapidly into the skin, leaving a subtle satin sheen. Definitely good for ladies if we apply it onto our legs after a day of high heels..!

According to the features and benefits I was sent, this was to be expected.

  • Contains only 100% pure plant extracts and organic essential oils packed with many therapeutic active compounds
  • Hydrates, replenishes moisture and leaves skin supple
  • Intensively balances and nourishes skin, stimulating it to regenerate and repair without clogging pores
  • Lightweight formula which absorbs instantly into skin, and leaves a subtle satin sheen – no greasy residue
  • Calming and mood-lifting
  • Pleasant natural scent with a blend of citrus and floral notes
  • Does not contain artificial fragrances, preservatives and colorants
  • Non-toxic, non-sensitizing and non-irritating

Plus, it was a nice and calming back massage for the boyfriend. We felt pampered by the scent as it has hints of “atas-nes” (Singlish: high-class) to it (smells like rose) which soothes and relaxes the both of us. Although the scent was strong, it was not overpowering and sickly. Highly recommended for both genders! :)

In addition, what I really like about Vines and Roots Body Oil is their choice of packaging! Its a safe and eco-friendly packaging to minimise environmentally unfriendly packaging. In fact, I noticed it was easy to dispense the oil by simply giving the bottle a light shake downwards. :)

Vines and Roots Soothing Body Oil is currently retailing @ S$68 on their online store here.

If you purchase this Soothing Body Oil before 30 November 2014, you will receive a complimentary 100% Natural Insect Repellent from Pure Beginnings (UP: S$9). :)

PS: Do note that there is a slight discrepancy on the front label. The ingredients list is accurate and reflects that the only organic ingredients are English Lavender and Rose Geranium. There is also no Valerian present in the new improved formulation. Vines and Roots thanked me for picking up the discrepancies and they have promised to ensure corrective changes are reflected in their next batch of Body Oils. 

[City Square Mall] Food Bank Box for Donating Excess Food

Leave a comment

Have excess food at home?

Not sure what to do with it?

How about dropping it off at City Square Mall’s latest Food Bank Box? This helps both the underprivileged in Singapore, as well as doing a part for Mother Earth! :)

In collaboration with The Food Bank Singapore Ltd, City Square Mall has added Food Bank Boxes for the public to donate our non-perishable and excess food items to the needy. You can read more about why having this Food Bank Box helps Mother Earth below.

So what are suitable food items you can donate?

  • Non-perishable food
  • Unopened
  • Unused
  • At least 4 weeks of shelf life

Examples of acceptable items: Canned food, dried food, preserved food, staples, snacks, condiments, non-refrigerated beverages

Location: Level 2, besides the Customer Service Counter (City Square Mall is located at 180 Kitchener Road, Singapore 208539. near Farrer Park MRT station)

I for one am glad that there is an additional recycling bin, specially for food at City Square Mall. With already present recyling bins for general waste (cans, plastic, paper, trash) and cosmetics (facial products, make-up removers, shampoos, shower foams, body lotions, City Square Mall is worthy of being known as Singapore’s first eco-friendly mall! Now my only hope is that they have a vegetarian store available at the food court…heehee :)

How does Food Box Bank help Mother Earth?

Did you know 2180 tonnes of food are dumped every day? That’s the equivalent of 110 double decker buses!

We are often guilty of buying too much food or receive lots of snacks during Christmas which would otherwise be wasted when they are left to expire on our shelves at home. The Food Bank Singapore has set up a Food Bank Box at City Square Mall to collect these items which would then be shared with Family Service Centres, Soup Kitchens and other Voluntary Welfare Organisations (VWOs).

Spread the word and let’s help the needy (and environment)! :)

World Premiere Tour of Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead #2 will be screening in Singapore on 3rd December 2014 (Wednesday).

Joe Cross, the main protagonist will be here in person!

He did a 60 day fresh fruit and vegetable juice fast and changed his health completely.

If you have been battling with your food and health everyday, this would be a great premiere to note down in your diary.

It is not easy to become healthy, and it is tougher to stay healthy.

Early bird tickets are currently available here at S$49. You can also get them on Eventbrite (they do charge a commission for ticket sales) but I do hope you can support the running of SGVegan by purchasing it through my affiliate link instead. With the small commission I would be getting through the purchase of the tickets, SGVegan would be able to share more goodies with the community. :)

Do note that every ticket comes with a healthy goodie bag worth more than S$50! :)

Although the event starts at 7pm, festivities start from 6pm. Meet the man in person and ask your questions!
