The lovely folks at Rain sent us some products to review aaaaaaaaand to giveaway! Yay! Rain focuses on handmade products using naturally sourced ingredients from Africa. They mainly produce bath and body products but also include home ware in their range too. So stick around while we take a look at some of their products from the Rain Wild Cotton range.
Wild Cotton Body Cream
This body cream is seriously thick. And moisturising. And smells ah-mazing! Probably because it contains shea butter, sweet almond oil and organic wild-harvested marula oil. And the smell is fresh and citrusy. I like a thick body cream as apposed to a lotion because the moisture you get from a cream vs a lotion is so much more and I feel it doesn’t sit on the surface but melts and stays on and within your skin. I enjoy that it comes in a jar, but once the product starts to run out you better hope your hand is small enough to reach the bottom! – Beth
Wild Cotton Mist
This room mist contains woody notes with hints of fern, patchouli and basil. According to Rain it is not pressurized and so does not contain CFCs which are harmful to the environment. Because it is not bottled under pressure you get a lot more liquid for your buck. What I like the most about this product is that is multipurpose and has a non-staining formula so it can be used on clothing, bed linen, towels, pillows, as a body perfume or to refresh a room as an air mist. Nice! – Beth
Wild Cotton Body Lotion
The first thing I noticed about this body lotion was that it wasn’t a very ‘girly’ fragrance. I’m not into very heavy floral lotions because I feel like it’s competing with my perfume and that I’ll be smelling like a million different things and isn’t that like a big no-n0? I remember watching some episode of something where some woman had the Chanel body lotion and the perfume so that she only had one smell – bit too fancy for me! This fragrance is quite neutral, and could totally work for guys too. The packaging is also gender-neutral (gift idea for dads/boyfriends/brothers who need to moisturise!)
The body lotion is quite light, which I’m pretty into. I’m not a big fan of body butter and that stuff. It’s quickly absorbed which I LOVE. Ain’t nobody got time to arb around while your moisturiser sinks in. It’s a great body lotion for summer, and it makes me rather excited to moisturise, which is a big deal for me because I’m rather lazy – Jess
Olive Oil Soap – Baobab
I think that this soap would make a great gift for family and friends visiting from over seas. It’s truly African in that it contains oils from baobab trees! Smells divine, lathers up nicely in the bath or shower and leaves you feeling soft and fresh due to the rosemary, olive, coconut, sunflower and palm oils that makes up this soap.
