I’m so excited to bring you this review, for the lovely brand Bettyhula. Anyway, as some of you may know I have recently become addicted to Twitter, and this is one of many wonderful things I have stumbled upon on there.
Bettyhula is a beauty brand producing, Hawaiian inspired moisturising creams and skin oils. Bettyhula uses fair trade, natural ingredients to create beautifully exotic and deliciously scented handmade cosmetics. The moisturising creams are made of a base of silky Shea Butter contained in cute, classy packaging featuring a vintage inspired pin-up Hula girl logo. Very appealing, very pretty a lovely addition to a beauty product collection or a divine gift.
The moisturising creams currently come in three scents:
- Rum & Blackcurrant
- Champagne & Spice
- Kiwi & Lime
Bettyhula also create an oil mysteriously named ‘The Secret’ which is currently receiving a fair bit of press, being praised as a miracle aid for treating wrinkles, stretch marks and eczema. Made from 100% natural ingredients, it is a delight to see a natural and beautiful product bring forth such astounding effects.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on two of the moisturising creams in Champagne & Spice and Rum & Blackcurrant. So here is my review of these sweet little products.
When I first used the cream I was worried that it would be too heavy on my skin, as the consistency of the cream feels very heavy and thick, however, I was very surprised at how silky it felt once massaged in, it did not feel greasy or heavy at all and sinked in nicely. I used the cream on the very dry skin on my hands and they were instantly hydrated and smoothed, very impressed with this effect.
The scents are both lovely and long lasting, creating a solid perfume effect if desired. Champagne & Spice was my favourite, I love the spicy notes, it’s a warm scent with a hint of coconut. Rum & Blackcurrant is sweeter, with a berry scent as the main note, very delicious. Overall I thought both were lovely, they had a long lasting effect and are distinctive and original. Both very flirty scents that would be great for everday use.
Bettyhula is available to purchase online, the creams are Â£14.99 for 120ml and ‘The Secret’ oil is Â£20, the website offers free P&P for UK customers. There are a number of stores that stock Bettyhula as well, including the beautiful Rose & Co in Leeds and selected Sainsbury’s stores from April 2011!
