Dr Organic Monoi Melt Body Oil Review





Coconut has always been one of my favourite ingredients in a bath product (closely followed by mint), and I had never tried a Doctor Organic product before, so I was happy to be sent the Monoi Melt Body Oil to try.

As a review product, this is a brand new concept to me, so although I was sceptical about how an oil based product would suit me, and what it would be like to use, I was intrigued. What arrives is a box with lots of pointers on what the product does, and the natural ingredients used to make it. The packaging is striking, and the information clear, so it ticks boxes there, and for the number of natural ingredients the company was able to include in it.

You can use the body oil on your hair, hands and nails, and body. It comes in a glass bottle as a solid mass, and here the fun part starts, as to use it, you first have to melt it, by putting the bottle in warm water. It doesn't take very long for the product to melt before you can start using it. I wasn't too keen on the idea of using it on my hair so I went for a post bath pamper on my body and hands/nails.

The packaging suggests that this product works best on knees and elbows, and I found that to be the case, as they were lovely and smooth, yet my hands felt a little dry after use. I also had to massage it pretty well, so that took a bit longer than expected. The scent is inoffensive, though not purely coconut so it was a little confused, though the main failing is there was no dispenser nozzle on the bottle, or that could be attached, so even if I was being careful, it was all too easy to end up with too much product on my hands.

I think much like any other bathing and beauty product the Monoi Melt Body Oil will suit some people and not others, just as everyone will have their favourite uses for it. I don't think I would buy it again as I'd prefer something that's easier to use, that suits my skin type more, but trying my first Dr Organic product, has definitely made me want to check out some of the other products in their range, in fact I've already had a sneaky 'borrow' of Dad's Manuka Honey Rescue Cream, which may be a purchase when I have gone through my skincare stash.

  2. This one wasn't sticky at all, just needed some patience applying. But it didn't suit some parts of my skin so well, but the product I tried of my Dads was great.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car

3 Ways With Mama Makes Bohemian Border Stamps

Hi Everyone, There's a little bit of a crafty overload here and on social media at the moment, but there are other posts planned and in draft form, so please look out for those, they just take a little bit of time to put together. Meantime I wanted to share the Mama Makes Bohemian Border stamps. I am a member of the design team, but bought these as I really liked the range of different designs - there are 10 in total, and had quite a few ideas of what I could do with them. I thought I'd post the stamps below, and 3 very different makes I came up with using them. 1) A Christmas Card - The Bohemian Border here I used as a Christmas garland, and absolutely love how it looks all coloured and glittered (had to get a little sparkle in there). The other thing I like about this set, is some of the designs are more of a bunting/garland shape, and not just a straight line, so there are handy gaps you can decorate with stick on gems or small embellishments for a finishing touch.
