We absolutely love testing new products here at Ultimate Wedding. As soon as a box arrives it’s a huge rush to see what’s inside! The items in this list were very kindly sent to us by the companies’ PR at no cost. However, we do not have to write about an item, let alone anything positive! These are our honest opinions and are only featured because we think you may like them. Enjoy!
A natural energy fix
I’m always willing to try products which will help me feel refreshed throughout the day, so I was excited to try Bee Energised. The box says it’s for “fatigue, fogginess & when run down”. Each capsule is packed full of the highest quality organic bee pollen, organic matcha tea, organic spirulina, Siberian ginseng, organic green tea leaf, rose hips along with Vitamin B6 and B12. After a few days of taking these every morning, it did feel as though I had more energy towards the late afternoon and didn’t feel as run down. I felt the same after taking this every day just for a week. However, this may be due to the placebo effect, but I’ll never know! These are definitely worth trying out as scientifically it has ingredients that will help. In the run up to your wedding, you can feel knackered, so some extra vitamins and nutrients can’t be any harm!
Bathe in a Piña Colada
An amazing smelling bath, what more could you want? I was sent a sample of Clean Beauty Co’s Coconut Dreaming. This product is completely full of natural ingredients, which I love! It doesn’t contain any fillers or undiluted ingredients, just the good pure organic stuff. It’s made up of silky coconut milk which helps moisturise the skin and a drop of citrus essential oil to help give it a scent of piña colada, it does smell like you’re bathing in one! This is such a great product and would make great gifts for bridesmaids.Tap here to buy online, cleanbeautyco.com
Essential for summer
After travelling to the USA frequently, I’m always amazed at the amount of products over there which aren’t sold here in the UK. One of the products I always spot are the aerosol cans of skin moisturiser, so easy to use and quick! When I heard about E45’s new fast acting spray moisturiser, I knew I had to get some. I took this on a trip to the Caribbean just before Christmas to test it out properly. After being in the sun a few hours I used this after to moisturise the skin. It sprays easily and covers a vast amount of skin quickly. Plus it doesn’t need loads of rubbing in as it’s easily absorbed into the skin. Win win! Make sure you get some of this for the summer!Tap here to buy online, e45.co.uk
Home office must-have
We don’t just get beauty items to test here at Ultimate Wedding, sometimes we get items which are very useful for everyday use! I was asked if I would like to try out the new Varidesk Pro in the office. After reading many articles about “sitting is the new smoking” and many reports into how bad sitting can be after a while, I was very keen to try standing up to work. I’ve seen standing desks before and they honestly look horrendous! Varidesk however, is very different. It’s placed on top of your own desk and comes in either white or black, I opted for the white one to match our office decor. The two-tier desk enabled me to have my Macbook and monitor up high, whilst my keyboard and mouse stayed down low. This was great when sitting down at the desk and also standing. The desk features 11 different height settings, ideal for anyone to use at their most comfortable standing height. I’ve been using these for a few months and can honestly say I don’t know how I’ve been working without it! If you work from home, this would be perfect on your wedding gift list. It’s made very well and will last for a long time!Tap here to buy online, varidesk.com
