Angel Face Botanicals Skincare Haul

I've been obsessed with organic skincare lately and while browsing on Etsy one evening, I found this little gem of a shop: Angel Face Botanicals run by Jessica, also known as Spa Goddess. Angel Face Botanicals offers organic facial care, perfumes and potions as well as natural bath and body care, created on the basis of aromatherapy principles, careful research and Jessica's own experiences. The whole range is organic, vegan, cruelty- and sulphate-free, naturally colored and scented. From the moment I started reading about her products, I wanted everything in the store; I must admit that all her line with its beautiful, simple design really appealed to me! But, with funds somehow restricted, I just got myself a "couple" of things:

(left to right):
Clary Blossom Blissful Organic Facial Mist: 94% organic and paraben-free, with chamomile, rose geranium, clary sage and neroli essential oils; for all skin types, helps reduce the appearance of broken capillaries.
Ambrosia Facial Cleansing Grains: 91% organic and preservative-free facial cleanser formulated with strawberry, apple and chamomile for their soothing properties and guava, papaya and banana for skin repairing properties. Rich in vitamins A & C, can also be used as a mask when mixed with a bit of toner/honey/yogurt or just water.
Angel's Balm Skin-Softening Botanical Body Butter: 98% organic and preservative-free body moisturizer with coconut oil and shea butter, scented with sweet orange, lavender, rose and chamomile essential oils. Initially formulated to aid the repair of stretch marks on Mummy's growing hips, breasts and belly.

Oil-Free Lavender Hydrating Serum sample: 96% organic and paraben-free (with a safe preservative complex), with lavender and aloe to help clear complexion, heal and prevent blemishes and soothe the skin; can be used alone or under a moisturizer.
Warmth Oatmeal Spice Soap petite bar: 85% organic soap with moisturizing, exfoliating and uplifting properties, formulated with cloves, cinnamon as well as safflower, sunflower and coconut oil.
Royal Jasmine Exquisite Moisture Creme travel size: rich facial cream scented with jasmine, neroli, rose and sandalwood to help regulate oil production, increase circulation, stimulate new cell growth & heal scar tissue.
Blemish Soother Spot Treatment: 75% organic serum formulated with jojoba oil and tea tree, lavender, sage and bergamot essential oils to speed healing, control oil production and prevent future breakouts.
Sweet Dreams Magical Aromatherapy Potion sample: calming blend of chamomile, lavender and neroli essential oils to promote peaceful and restful sleep.

Luxury Organic Sample Soap Set, including my choice of following soap samples (left to right):
Radiance Blood Orange and Bergamot soap
Detox Exfoliating Soap with Juniper Berries
Sunshine Citrus and Lavender soap
Refresh Peppermint soap
and Detox soap again :)

I actually got two samples of Detox soap by mistake instead of one Detox and one Warmth, so in my next order, Jessica included not just the missing soap sample, in fact she sent me the petite size soap, which was really nice of her! I loved chatting with her about the products and I have to say the customer service was just excellent, the shipping was fast and everything came nicely packaged together with some generous samples.

Anyway, would you ladies be interested in reading reviews of some of these products? Let me know in the comments and the products which get most votes will be reviewed first; I have my favorites but I'd like to know which items you find most interesting. Stay cool in this crazy hot weather, dear readers!

*Disclaimer* All of the products mentioned I purchased myself with my own money and obviously, I am not compensated in any way for featuring them on my blog. I just wanted to let you guys know about this fabulous company since I haven't seen it on any blogs! I hope you'll find it helpful.
