I was invited to the Launch of ‘Davina Peace’ on Weds 20th October 2010, a luxurious but Organic Beauty brand! Luxurious and Organic are not words you hear in a sentence together, so.. wonder woman and eco- preneur ‘Davina Peace’ set out on her mission to prove to her critics that it could be done!! Whilst working at the soil association Davina gained a large amount of know-how on the wide world of organic products, she then pursued a career in marketing working at Saatchi and Saatchi! Being diagnosed with a chronic illness forced Davina to re-evaluate her lifestyle, she explored the benefits of nutrition and the impact it would have on her well-being and adopted a strictly organic diet, she also grew fond of using organic beauty products but being the girly girl she is, she did not find the luxury she wanted in the so-called Organic beauty brands she was using, that’s when ‘Davina Peace’ the luxurious and Organic beauty brand was born.

Let me introduce you to the fabulous Body and Home range from ‘Davina Peace’:

Body Cream 70% Organic (Soil Association certified) £55 175ml- Thick, rich and indulgent are the words used to describe this yummy body cream. On application it immediately moisturises whilst also giving the skin a more taut appearance. The luxurious feel and texture is achieved through the unique properties of UK origin Crambe Oil. Long term use will improve overall tone, texture and taughtness of the skin. Massage daily after bath/shower, concentrate of dry and concern areas. The smell is amazing and uplifting and in my own words this cream feels like butter when applied. Its thick and creamy and glides on with ease. Fragrances you can smell include: Organic Chamomile, Organic Geranium, Organic Vanilla extract and many more!!

It’s like Christmas in a candle, this amazingly scented candle has a lovely warming smell which fills up the room. Great relaxing burner after a long day of work on a cold Winter evening.
