Getting Summer Ready with River Veda + Giveaway!

Getting Summer Ready with River Veda

We’re well into Spring here in Australia and everywhere I look, girls are glowing – so I wanted to get in on the action on getting Summer ready myself!

I’ve been a self-tanner for years and these days, as a busy mum I have no time to lounge around in the sun so started to research what self-tan products are available.

I found River Veda products on the World Organics website and was immediately drawn to them. They’re a luxury rejuvenation and regeneration organic spa and skincare line designed to nourish skin and uplift emotions.

My skin has undergone so many changes during the last year and chemo really took it’s toll, drying it out and leaving it looking lifeless and dull. I feel so good on the inside and so full of life but physically, I still look, well, grey.

River Veda claims to fuse the “wisdom of the East Western technology” so I picked up three of their products to put them to the test.

For a couple of week’s I’ve been using the Rejuvenate Moisture Me Body Lotion, Day Star SPF30 and Sun Star Body Bronzer.

I needed to hydrate my skin, protect it from the sun’s rays and give it a bronzing boost so I look as radiant on the outside as I feel on the inside!

The Moisture Me Body Lotion is made with 78.14% organic ingredients such as shea butter and cold pressed oils from New Zealand. A tiny amount goes a long way – just a few of pumps for a whole body moisturise. I love the fragrance and feel of shea butter and how it sinks into the skin immediately – so no downtime before you can get dressed.

On top of the moisturiser, I apply Day Star SPF30 on my face and body to protect it from UV rays and skin damage from the sun. There are no nasties like chemical filters, parabens and artificial flavours.

For days when I want to feel extra glowy, I’ve been using the Sun Star Body Bronzer which is made with 71.45% organic ingredients.

It gives an instant tan, rather than one that slowly develops, which is great for a day or night out. I apply it lightly after exfoliating and moisturising and can see the bronzing effect immediately which means no shocking tan lines appear after you’ve already left the house! Is it just me who gets those?

Here’s me looking a bit glowy with Kate Ritchie at the recent McGrath Foundation High Tea! How gorgeous and glam is Kate?

    I could definately use this; since I was a child my nickname was ‘Moon-Tan’ because it looked like i’d been tanning in the moon instead of the sun (i’m that pale). I’d love to get my glow on.

    Summer can not come soon enough! I am so sick of cold weather, mother nature keeps giving us little sneak peaks of summer here then tears us down with days of rain. Looking forward to being able to swim at the beach most of all!
