SPOTLIGHT: Urban Rituelle Prize!

Another crazily manic week, but I'm here at last, proudly displaying a prize I won for my photography - can't believe it You must know by now that taking pictures of beautiful things is almost at the top of my list of all consuming passions, and given that Urban Rituelle products are one of my favourite camera subjects, to win their December #myrituelle comp was a thrill that still has me tingling from the tips of my ears all the way down to my toes. But here it is June and I've only just claimed my loot! The prize was a $100 voucher to spend in their store, and the combination of being frantically busy in all areas of my life since Christmas, AND finding it almost impossible to decide what goodies to choose has meant it's taken me this long to place my order, but SO well worth the wait. And I'm posting this tonight because UR are having a BIG sale at the moment, and I thought that showcasing some of their gorgeous products might help you decide what to order if you'd planned on indulging...

I'll be reviewing some of these beauties individually over the next few weeks, but for now, here's a snapshot of what I scored...

Romance Amber & Musk Fragrance Diffuser Set
This is my first diffuser from UR, and I can assure you, the first of many - apart from the fact that this particular fragrance is exquisitely sexy, it looks just so darn classy, and it's a massive 190ml 

Mandarin + Basil + Lime Equilibrium Hand Cream
This is my second tube - can't live without this hand saviour, my rave review of it from last December is here.

Lemongrass, Lemon Myrtle, Grapefruit & Eucalyptus Organic Hand Cream
This was recommended to me by one of the UR team (thank you Lauren!) and I ordered two, one for me and one for my Mum. But I've fallen so passionately in love with it, I think my Mum is going to miss out - it's the lemoniest lemon fragrance you can possibly imagine...

Passionfruit Lip Balm
UR Lip Balms are my favourite of any brand I've tried - full of natural ingredients plus a sunscreen, I've been keeping my lips in top kissing form with my Ginger Apple one every day since January, and the tin is still half full! This passionfruit delight has a very subtle, sweet fruity fragrance and yummy taste - it was already on special, and this weekend there's a further 15% off. Bargain of the year!

Cotton Candy Organic Lip Balm and Petit Parfum
This smells just like toffee fairy floss, only nicer - I'm stashing the perfume away so I have a sweet treat to look forward to when Spring rescues us all from the big freeze, but the balm will have a place next to my bed (and on my lips), to remind me that Winter isn't forever...

Freebie - Hibiscus & Cranberry Perfume Oil
There's a free gift with every UR order, and it's usually one of their magnificent soaps plus a travel-sized hand cream, so imagine what a surprise it was to find one of my loves (review is here) tucked away inside the parcel. Obviously there's an angel in the dispatch department 

As you can see from the pics, the packaging of all products is superb, and I'll be taking advantage of their sale to nab some more favourites, as well as sampling some more wonders from their range.

Take care of you,
