Peggy Sue Soaps Product Review

by Samantha MacKenzie

Peggy Sue Soaps

Recently I was gifted a couple of beautiful products from Australian Brand Peggy Sue Soaps. I had heard of them once or twice before, but I find it easy to get caught up in more easily available products. I am so glad I took the opportunity to give these stunning products ago. Not only do they work and look fab, most of the products are also refillable making it super sustainable.

The products I tried were the Bath and Body Oil and the Silk Lip Kit which contains a lip scrub and balm.

Bath & Body Oil

“Our Body & Bath Oil is the beauty oil that does it all. It is a luxurious blend of Organic Coconut + Jojoba oil, making it both lightweight, and effective. Featuring an uplifting blend of essential oils, this Body & Bath oil will feed the skin so much love being rich in vitamins & essential fatty acids, improving skins elasticity + plumpness. It is perfect to use directly on your whole body for moisture, or add it to your bath for a relaxing and hydrating experience. This Oil is also light enough to use on the ends of your hair to protect dry, splitting ends, as well as on the cuticles.”

KEY INGREDIENTS

Grapefruit oil– Full of antioxidants, keeps skin clear + vibrant.

Jojoba Oil– Mimics the skin’s natural oils to hydrate the deeper skin layers. Plumping properties.

Coconut Oil– Vitamin rich oil, working to Hydrate + Nourish.

100ml – $46

First of all, how stunning is it? This is one of those products you sit somewhere people will see it because it’s so pretty! I absolutely love how this makes my skin feel as a body oil. Super smooth and hydrated, and the scent… It has the most amazing creamy vanilla scent with just a hint of citrus. If you’ve read my reviews before, you know I’m not a fan of strong scents, natural or otherwise. This is perfect for me. It would be amazing in the bath, but I don’t have one.

Lip Exfoliant

“Want lips that are naturally fuller, plumper, and silky smooth to the touch? Remove dry, flakey skin with our Lip Exfoliant. A sweet sugar sensation, infused with nourishing Shea Butter and Vitamin E, helping to restore and hydrate lips for long lasting protection. This scrub will also increase blood circulation, which leaves lips looking plump and full of life. Our natural Lip Exfoliant contains no nasties, and comes in a beautiful branded bamboo tub, which has a refill option making it a sustainable product.”

KEY INGREDIENTS

Castor Oil – Rich in ricinoleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid which locks in moisture

Shea Butter – A natural shield to hydrate skin while protecting against free radical damage

Vitamin E – A powerful antioxidant, preventing UV damage

Ingredients: Castor Oil, Sugar, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Carnauba Wax, Shea Butter, Lemon Oil, Lemon Myrtle Oil, Natural Vitamin E. NO PARABENS, NO PETROLEUM, NO SULPHATES, NO SILICONES, NO ARTIFICIAL COLOURS+FRAGRANCES.

 20ml – $21 or $36 in the Silk Lip Kit

Now, I know this works. I used it once and my lips felt as they should after a good scrub, but the Lemon Oil and Lemon Myrtle Oil irritated my lips. This is not going to be an issue for most people. I used to make lipstick for a living an learned that I was extra sensitive to most of the additive ingredients. Plus, it’s refillable which I love. Instead of wasting this beautiful product, I made my husband use it. I will be refilling with my own, super basic, homemade lip scrub.

Lip Conditioner

“Our nourishing Lip Conditioner is a beautiful blend of natural, vitamin rich ingredients, that work to deeply hydrate and restore lips, while protecting them against the outside elements. Use as often as desired, and alongside our Lip Exfoliant, to keep your lips healthy, plump and hydrated. Our organic Lip Conditioner contains no nasties, and comes in a beautiful branded bamboo twist tube, which has a refill option making it a sustainable product.”

KEY INGREDIENTS

Coconut Oil– Vitamin rich oil, working to  Hydrate + Nourish.

Shea Butter– deeply hydrates, reduces inflammation, restores dry skin.

Ingredients: beeswax*, shea butter*, fractionated coconut oil*, olive oil*, jojoba oil, vanilla co2. NO PETROLEUM, PARABENS, OR SULPHATES

5.5ml – $16 or $36 in the Silk Lip Kit

This is now a part of my night skincare routine! I love it. It’s a little more waxy to apply than other balms but once it’s on you don’t feel it at all. Your lips are just amazingly hydrated. Even when I’ve had dry lips from the wind, this has made an immediate difference. I’ve noticed that it’s not something you need to continuously apply for benefits. It just works.

Peggy Sue has a range of other amazing products for the face and body, and as mentioned, many of the products are refillable. Although there is still some plastic involved, which Peggy Sue are completely upfront about, this is a huge step in making sustainable choices. I can’t wait to try out some of the other products on offer! Head to the Peggy Sue Soaps website HERE for more information on the products and to purchase.
