Orla Kiely – Bergamot Collection *

Hey All

Late post from me tonight. I’ve been in the kitchen busy baking as in work we are having a Great British Bake Off thing where each week one of us bakes. My turn was advanced dough week so I tried my hand at Luis’ Raspberry Mojito Doughnut. It’s safe to say I wouldn’t be winning prizes for consistency!


Anyway on to today’s review. We were recently sent some of the Orla Kiely Bergamot Collection to try. The first thing I noticed was the gorgeous print on the bottle! These would look so pretty in a bathroom or kitchen. At my house we did have a dispenser till I knocked it off. These are a product safe from the clumsy people like myself!


I was excited to receive the hand wash and hand lotion and these came straight to work with me. I work in a laboratory so my hands are washed a lot everyday so get really dry from the horrible soap in the dispensers! It’s been lovely (I almost put lush there but lately I’m very aware of how welshie I am and saying lush doesn’t help!) having a more caring product to use!


The bergamot is new to the range and follows on from the success of the Geranium range. Something L and I look for in products is sulphate and paraben free. These are that as well as free from petrochemicals and artificial colours.


The Bergamot range is fresh and floral but not over powering with a slight spicy, peppering smell meaning if this is in the bathroom I’m sure guys wouldn’t complain. They are made with 100% essentials oils included in this range are cedarwood, patchouli, grapefruit, bergamot, neroli and cardamom to name a few.


The hand cream easily rubs in, leaving hands from soft and not greasy. It smells amazing on the skin and it does last a while. It’s really been helping the dry skin on my hands! It’s nice to use a hand wash that is sulphate free and I think this is also helping the dry skin on my hands! 

With Christmas fast approaching I think these would make a great gift! I think my mum will find the hand cream and hand wash in her stocking!

These can be purchased from John Lewis and Fenwick stores as well as independant sellers and online.

Have you tried any of the Orla Kiely range? A good bit of packaging really sells a product for me!

Love M
