Header_Green_Parent2

Bonjour mes amies!

Welcome to yet another exciting review from your truly!

Todays review is on a fantastic and very unique brand known as Ville de Fleur, an organically sourced brand that is local in the South East London area.

Ville de Fleurs is independently run by Tatiana, a wonderful women with a passion for flowers and nature and with that passion a desire to conjure organic products with properties to heal, protect and care for the skin for both men and women.

Her products are made from 100% natural, organic and fair trade ingredients that are ecco friendly and suitable for the use of Vegans. The products are inspired by nature and there are many fragrances that would suit different times of the year and different skin types.

The brand has grown into a successful company, winning the Green Parent Award at the 2013 Natural Beauty Awards. Whether you like the traditional scents of lavender and rose or are more adventurous with scents of Golden Pumpkin or Orange blossom, these products are designed for anyone and everyone.

In todays instalment I have nine products that I have tried and tested to give you an insight into the brand and what to expect. So without further adieu I shall commence my review of the little treasures that arrived at my door, hand delivered by Tatiana herself (being that she resides in my neck of the woods) and I hope you too find something from the range that you love.

Lavender Face Polish: Fashioneyesta Loves

lavender

Price: £5.99

Accessibility: NA

Due to the fact that I was given tester sizes, I cannot comment hugely on accessibility. However, the product has a distinctive texture and scent. So, a visually impaired person should have no issue with locating this product correctly.

Ease of Application: 4/5 

I found the product easy to apply and easy to wash off. The powdery consistency may mean that you have to apply to product when in the bath or shower to ensure it doesn’t fall onto an area which may be hard to clean. One key tip I would offer to anyone who purchases this product is the keep your eyes closed when using the product to ensure it doesn’t fall into the eye area.

Value for money: 5/5 

Excellent value for money, I will definitely be investing in a jar!

Overall Quality: 5/5

I absolutely loved this product! The smell was classic, mild and comforting, whilst leaving the skin feeling cleansed, renewed and radiant. There was a visible difference to my skin and for the price I was even more impressed. I am extremely happy with this product and think it is a must have Autumn Essential.

The shape of the bottle is distinctive with a pump dispenser, making the product easy to access from the bottle. The smell is also very distinctive, I do not believe I have come across a product with this smell in the cosmetics department before.

Ease of Application: 5/5

It couldn’t be easier to apply this product, a small amount on the index finger would be enough to revitalise each under eye area.

Excellent value for money, I can’t wait to order a bottle.

Overall Quality: 5/5 

My under eyes areas look visibly different, I appear to be more freshened and awake when I apply this in the morning. i would highly recommend this as a Autumn/Winter product as well as being good for all of those sleepless nights.

The bottle has an attached pump dispenser, making the product easy to extract. There is also a distinctive smell to the product which again improves any cosmetics accessibility.

The product was easy to apply and absorbed into the skin quickly and easily. This product would be fantastic for anyone on the go, as it has the right consistency to act like an intense moisturiser, without the time consuming wait.

At 125 ml this product is very good value for money and you do not need a huge amount of the product per usage.

I found the product great for my dry patches of skin as it helped to repair and intensely moisture those areas. I think someone with dry skin would benefit from this product and it is also great for the colder months to ensure skin stays smooth and hydrated.

I am unsure of how the spray factor would work as I was given a tester with a pipette.

The product was easy enough to apply a few drops from the pipette onto the pillow. I found that it left a pleasant aroma afterwards in preparation for my beauty sleep.

Very good value for money, considering that only 2-3 drops is needed for the neck and décolletage area.

I am delighted to have fond a product with a pleasant scent that is focused for just the neck and décolletage area. As I believe that many forget that the neck and décolletage is just as important to maintain and hydrate as this area is also prone to drying and sun damage.

Excellent value for money, as you only need a very small amount for each use.

Overall Quality: 5/5 

I utterly adored this product! It left my skin feeling soft and smooth and with a radiant complexion. I have never found a face serum that works as well as this one and believe me I will be making an order for this little miracle in a bottle very soon.

Website Accessibility

The website is very accessible with the iPhone voiceover (tried and tested) ad there os also a good colour contrast of a cream background and black text. The font is in comic sans making it easy to read and there are also plenty of directions on using the products on the information section of the pages.

All in all I was very impressed with the website accessibility.

Packaging

ville de fleurs

The packaging is also very vintage looking with the Ville de Fleurs logo on the front. The logo an outline of a women with a flowing dress and  a long ponytail riding her vintage cycle with a basket of flowers.

Tatiana’s inspiration for her packaging is to make it accessible for those who are on the go. The products are designed for those who travel via cycle or who walk making them excellent for those who travel. The sizes of the hand creams are perfect for those who need something small to carry.

This brand is the personification of everything that I adore in a cosmetic company eco friendly, animal friendly, scented and for anyone and everyone from different walks of life.

On conversing with Tatiana she told me

‘I love floral scents as they can be so uplifting and I think that scent is one of the most important things when making skincare products. Which makes them appealing to those who cannot see.’

In Summary

I found these products all fantastic in their own way but have decided upon three favourites and they were…

  • The Golden Pumpkin Under the Eye Treatment-for visible results
  • The Camella & Rose Petals Face Serum-for visible results
  • The Lavender Face Scrub-for scent

All in all I found the cosmetics to have a pleasant scent, to be at affordable prices and to deliver visible results.

I will defiantly be returning to Ville de Fleurs to place an order!
