JMA presents Betty Hula, a new premium, handmade skincare range. Designed with a belief in ‘honest, natural beauty’, Betty Hula products are crammed with delicious, exotic, Hawaiian inspired scents and natural ingredients to suit all skin types and pamper your skin.
A newish product to the beauty market, Betty Hula is already leaving its mark and has jumping out at beauty lovers on Sainsbury’s shelves since April this year. The British based range so far includes two types of Shea Butter Moisturising Creams deliciously scented as Champagne and Spice and Rum and Blackcurrant and ‘The Secret’ Anti-Ageing Oil.
We were lucky enough to try them out and decide if we wanted to give them the JMA seal of approval.
Firstly the Shea Butter Moisturising Creams, contain Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. The makers at Betty Hula claim that the product is effective in relieving the signs of stretch marks, scaring and is suitable for dry, sensitive, combination or oily skin. The indulgent cream can also help to soothe sunburns while leaving you smelling good enough to eat.
The rich, white cream has a whipped texture making it really light on your skin and doesn’t feel like it is just sitting, clogging your skin. And although both creams are scented it isn’t at all overwhelming instead leaving a light fragrance on the skin and no doubt you will (as I did) give yourself a little sniff every now and then. My personal favourite is the Rum and Blackcurrant, it smells gorgeous and leaves my skin feeling really soft and smooth.
‘The Secret’ is out and Betty Hula’s Anti-Ageing Oil is something to talk about. The ingredients include Grapeseed Oil, Apricot Kemel, Avocado Oil, Hemp Oil, Vitamin E, Rose Absolute and Jojoba Oil and is said to help to repair damaged skin, eliminate dryness and reduce wrinkles. The oil is already a favourite of new mums who on Betty Hula’s website are raving about how the product helped them to improve the look of stretch marks. Luckily (for testing purposes) I have eczema so could really put ‘The Secret’ to the test. Instead of leaving skin greasy, the oil soaked into my skin really quickly and like the other Betty Hula products, it smelt amazing. I did find that a little bit went a long way and I really didn’t have to use much to notice how nourished my skin was after just one use. I just simply applied a small amount to my skin and rubbed it in in small circular motions and voila! Smooth, non-dried out skin.
I loved the packaging. The different coloured tubes really made the products stand out on the Sainsbury’s shelf and I really liked the added touch of the little ribbon with a note attached “Handmade by Betty x” it made the product more personal like it was reaching out to you.
For everything it does I think that the pricing of the Betty Hula range is reasonable. The Shea Butter Moisturising Creams come in large tubs priced at £14.99. I will say though I don’t imagine a tub would last myself very long as I would use so much of the product as I like it so much. ‘The Secret’ Anti-Ageing Oil is priced at £15.99 and with a little going a long way I imagine it would last you quite a while. I think this product is up there with many other luxury brands so it warrants the price tag.
Overall, I was really impressed by the Betty Hula range. It was a scented range which for a change I could use on my sensitive skin without irritation and it did everything the makers claimed and more.
