Last week I received this very nicely packaged pr sample in the post. I'd never heard of the brand Wild before and was interested to trial something and see what you guys had to say about them. So many times I've reviewed something totally new to me only to find that lots of you have been using the products for years so do let me know if you've 'gone wild' yourself!
The founder of Wild is Valerie Outram, she is passionate about creating fair-trade opportunities and empowering the people of Africa to create a sustainable income from the world around them. The ingredients are all natural and locally sourced and the packaging is just beautiful. The attention to detail is fantastic for a small company with such a strong convictions. They could've opted for clean lines and really pushed the 'all natural' gimmick home but instead they gave us something that appeals on an aesthetic level as well as making us feel like we're being socially responsible.
The body butter is comparable to The Body Shop for quality and I'm not going to go working out grams as opposed to ml but I'm pretty sure there's more of this. I received the Hydrating butter with Shea and Cape Chestnut. I'm not a massive chestnut fan but the shea scent kept me interested. I love the smell of shea butter and my dry winter skin appreciates the moisture more than ever right now.
If you order a body butter (£14.50) and a soap (£5.25) you also get a cute fabric bag rather like the one mine was packaged in. A lovely gift that anyone would appreciate, I'm sure. I love that the soap is carved, it gives it a really 'homemade' feel. In truth I wasn't so excited about reviewing a bar of soap but they insisted I take it and I'm glad I did. It's not your conventional skin drying formula, far from it! They are made with natural hydrating ingredients that leave you feeling clean but moisturised when you hop out of the tub.
The brands mission statement is "Our aim is to be kind to Humans, Animals and the Environment" and well.. you can't say fairer than that!
