Sew is Life is written by E. It is a little space of blogging bliss inspired by art, design, craft, fashion, beauty and wellness. Based in Perth, Western Australia. Read about the daily ramblings of me being a mother of three and wife to an amazing creative man. The second me makes fresh skincare at SELF Organics. These are my stories sewn together with love.
Yay! Don’t you just love winning prizes? I know I do. There’s just something that lights up inside when you find out you won a gift. I’m still hoping and waiting for the day I win lotto! Hehe…I’ll just keep dreaming.
I was very lucky to have won a Planet Eve organic pack from O&M hair care’s instagram competition. I love a company that can use pure ingredients and recyclable packaging, it shows they really care about the world and about their consumers health.
Inside the gift set is the Certified Organic Luxe Body Creme and Luxe Hand Creme. It comes with the Australian Certified Organic seal of approval. Because the word ‘organic’ can be mentioned on a product but it doesn’t necessarily mean that all the ingredients are organic. With the seal you can be assured at least 95% of the contents is organic.
The bottles are soft and silky to the touch! They feel luxe, and squishy. Both the hand creme and luxe body creme comes in a pump bottle which makes it easy to use.
Right: Luxe body creme, Left: Luxe hand creme
Luxe Body Creme 200mL - $49.01
The body creme is thick in consistency, the formula actually snakes out of the pump because of how rich it is. When applied to the skin, it feels deeply hydrating and it is enriched with Rose, Shea Butter, Jojoba and Macadamia Oils. I used it after I have had a shower and the oils just melt into the skin and leaves a slight ‘rosey’ scent. However the luxe body creme contains the natural perfume and antibacterial ingredient, Naticide. This can be a little strong on the nose, but it fades with wear.
Luxe Hand Creme 50mL - $29.00
As the names suggests this little luxury is a life saver for extra dry hands. It contains rose, shea butter, jojoba, acai and lingonberry that helps to return moisture to dehydrated skin. I like to keep this little squeeze tube in my hand bag for those times when my hands need some TLC. Especially since I am always constantly cleaning, washing my hands and handling dusty paperwork.
Sometimes just doing daily tasks can take a toll on my hands and I get self-conscious when I have to touch someone else’s hand. In case they think they are touching sand paper!
All of Planet Eve’s products do not contain any of the harsh chemicals, parabens and GMO ingredients as you see in the label above. Which is a load off my mind! I like to keep my skincare as clean, natural and organic as possible. It has become important to me to live a clean and natural lifestyle as much as I can. Planet Eve products are all made in Australia too.
You can find out more about their range on the website
Have you tried any of Planet Eve’s products?

I’m back guys! With two birthdays down and one to go…I feel I am still recovering from post-kids party stress but I am proud of myself for pulling off the dual party of the year. Lil Man and Lil Moon had the best time and I managed to take lots and lots of photos.
Can you believe we’re almost there!! SPRING is on its way. We are mid-way through our Australian Winter and there have been some mornings where no amount of coffee (well in my case…tea) was going to get me out of bed. I have been pretty fortunate not to have fallen sick this Winter and crossing my fingers and toes, I’m hoping my lucky streak continues. How have you been coping with the cold days?
