|AD – PR Product| There is nothing more satisfying than discovering a new skincare and wellness brand, especially one that aims to improve your self care routine with a range of products that are designed to help strengthen our resilience to the stresses of everyday life…
Tea & Tonic are based in the Surrey Hills, utilising adaptogen super herbs in their blends to help support high-paced life and the effects day-to-day living has on our mind, body and skin. The brands ethos is one to be admired, embodying everything I personally look for in a natural brand from it’s ethical and sustainable credentials and small-batch production to the cruelty-free formulations that celebrate the very best of British ingredients.
I have been trying the Tea & Tonic Inviting Sleep Body Oil recently, as well as samples of their wellness tea collection, and it is safe to say that I have been enjoying the self-care experience.
The wellness teas range from your everyday English Breaskfast Tea (with an adaptogen twist) to a sleepy blend and everything in between. The teas not only taste great and come in Earth-conscious packaging but they go beyond a simple drink by aiding a variety of concerns from low immunity and insomnia to digestion issues and that mid-afternoon energy slump.
Yet where the brand have impressed me the most is with their Inviting Sleep Body Oil, a skincare treat formulated to help promote relaxation and a peaceful nights sleep. The vegan and cruelty-free body oil is rich in omega fatty acids, phystosterols, antioxidants and vitamins C & E for all-round skin health and contains some truly beautiful ingredients:
- Safflower Seed Oil,
- Blackcurrant Seed Oil,
- White Poppy Seed Oil,
- Lavender Herb Oil,
- Brahmi Leaf Extract,
- Gotu Kola Leaf Extract,
- White & Red Ginseng Root Extract,
- Siberian Ginseng Root Extract,
- Amla Fruit Extract,
- Holy Basil Leaf Extract,
- Schisandra Berry Fruit Extract,
- Vitamin E,
- Vetiver Root Oil,
- Sandalwood Wood Oil,
- Amyris Balsamifera Bark Oil,
- Benzoin Resin Oil.
The oil itself is incredibly nourishing on the skin yet absorbs beautifully, with a dry-oil feel that is fast-absorbing and leaves behind no greasy residue in it’s wake. The aroma is incredibly calming as you’d expect, with lavender and vetiver giving a beautiful relaxing scent that has a hint of sweetness from benzoin and a beautiful warmth from the addition of sandalwood. I have been reaching for this time and time again, with my dry skin reaping the deeply moisturising benefits the Inviting Sleep Body Oil has to offer while my senses bask in the beautiful, calming blend with each use. I’ve also found that my skin feels smoother and softer with prolonged use and small patches of healing eczema have been less inflamed and more supple since integrating this into my routine.
If you’re looking for a body oil that promotes relaxation and beautifully nourished skin then I highly recommend checking Tea & Tonic’s beautiful blend out. For me, this is so much more than just a body oil, as the texture, scent and nourishing ingredients work in harmony to make each application feel like a complete self-care treat. The results have gone beyond my expectations and delivered and all-round skincare experience like no other. The brand have certainly left me wanting to try more from their range and their dedication to sustainability, wellness and great skin is impressive to say the least.
