About the manufacturer:
Our products are all 100%:
- Organic and Natural
Handmade - we make our batches in small quantities, so the minimal amount of warmth is needed, therefore preserving all the essential minerals, trace elements and vitamins to feed and balance the skin. Having hands on contact with our ingredients, we can constantly check the quality, consistency and smell ensuring only the highest quality of product available.
Purity - we do not believe in having the latest new fad manufactured extracts and chemicals in our products.We like to fill our jars with amazing natural plant oils and herbs which have been working their wonders for the past few centuries. Natural oils are full of trace element, vitamins and minerals absorbed from the soil and sunlight over the growing season. The skin readily absorbs natural oils as they are similar to the skin’s natural sebum and PH. Using only the finest organic ingredients ensures our products give you the highest purity product.
Organic - all ingredients used are 100% soil association or ecocert certified. We use only certified organic ingredients because the soil is healthier and is rested in-between crop cycles, and then nitrogen rich plants are sown to feed the soil before the next crop is planted. This provides abundance in trace elements, vitamins and minerals for seeds to absorb and grow into healthy strong plants. Organic harvesting is mainly done by hand and followed by cold pressing the plant matter. This avoids heating the oils and then destroying the amazing skin feeding nutrients, which normal producing methods continue to proceed with. Pride and passion overflows in the quality and hard work that goes into providing every single drop of oil. Workers are paid a fairer wage, have better working and living conditions set by the organic certification bodies. Organic farming avoids using pesticides and chemical which leach into soils and waterways, affecting the eco systems and people’s drinking water, food crops and environment .Organic encourages wildlife and works with nature not against it.
Appearance and packaging - 10 / 10
Hubble Bubble Organics Super Skin Saver Potion No 2 is packaged in a stunning 50g (1.76oz) clear glass pot with a chrome lid. The container measures approximately 2.3 inches (5.8cm) in diameter by 1.7 inches (4.4cm) in height. The glass is strong and thick, but it is also very good quality as it is completely clear. The jar neck is around 1.9 inches (4.7cm) in diameter. It is easily accessible with fingers or a cosmetic spatula. The base of the jar is ribbed, which increases surface tension and makes the container more stable. The lid twists on and off the pot with a single rotation. The action is smooth and the lid does not become cross threaded. After four weeks of daily use, the container looks as good as when it was first opened because it is so well made. The product is sold in a paper outer box.
Hubble Bubble Organics Super Skin Saver Potion No 2 looks elegant and luxurious. The clear glass jar shows the yellow product inside. There is a single clear label with black print on the front of the jar, which is well complemented by the silver colour of the lid. The label contains information regarding the brand name, product name, product size and product expiry date, which is 6 months from the date of opening. The label features a faintly visible background design of lines, circles and a star. The monochrome scheme of the container is extremely elegant. The white paper outer box is colourful, artistic and extremely informative. It provides a full list of ingredients, explaining that the product is free of parabens, preservatives, sulphates, synthetic fragrances, silicones, palm oil and SLR. There are also directions for use, further product information and company contact details. The design on the box is in pink, green and blue, and depicts lines, circles and stars, which match the container label.
Smell and Texture - 10 / 10
Hubble Bubble Organics Super Skin Saver Potion No 2 has a delectable herbal, nutty scent. The main ingredients contributing to the scent are: Cera alba (beeswax), Cupressus sempervirens (cypress) essential oil, Lavendula angustifolia (lavender) essential oil and Anthemis nobilis (chamomile) essential oil. All are certified organic. Beeswax is warm and comforting. Cypress is woody and herbal. Lavender is fresh, floral and balsamic. Chamomile is warm, herbal, sweet and relaxing. The blend of these ingredients is extremely aromatic. The aroma is not strong but it is noticeable and wears well.
Hubble Bubble Organics Super Skin Saver Potion No 2 has a balm-like consistency. It is solid when in the jar, very soft and easy to scoop out and begins to melt as soon as it is applied. It melts into a thin oil, which spreads easily and is absorbed instantaneously. The only thickener in the moisturiser is beeswax, otherwise the product is made of essential oils. We love balms because of their texture, which is why it is refreshing to encounter a daily moisturiser which consistency-wise is so much like a balm.
Ease of use - 10 / 10
Hubble Bubble Organics Super Skin Saver Potion No 2 is very straightforward. The packaging is beautiful, strong and easy to use. The product has a delectable scent and a lovely texture. Directions for use recommend: “Apply to face, neck and chest after cleansing and spritzing. Warm a small amount on tips of fingers and sweep across face until absorbed”. It is a pleasure to use.
Effect on skin - 10 / 10
Hubble Bubble Organics Super Skin Saver Potion No 2 is called so probably because it is so magical. We tested the product for four weeks on sensitive and problematic skin, prone to acne, breakouts, large pores, dry patches and irritation. The effect was astonishing: clear, smoother skin, a sizeable reduction in pimples, tighter pores, no more dry patches and no irritation for the entire duration of the trial. The Potion contains only 100% certified organic ingredients. Prunus armeniaca (apricot) oil is highly absorbent and leaves no greasy residue, which is why it is an excellent carrier oil (facilitates the absorption of other ingredients). The oil is rich in oleic and linoleum acids (powerful emollients) and Vitamins A and E (powerful antioxidants). Helianthus annuus (sunflower) oil has a high content of Vitamins (A, B, D and E), minerals and fatty acids. It is deeply nourishing, moisturising and healing. Simmondsia sinensis (jojoba) oil is a nutrient-rich moisturiser, which works by reinforcing the skin’s hydrolipidic film, nourishing and hydrating. Cannabis saliva (hemp) oil contains a lot of fatty acids, essential for healthy skin. Some of its properties are: anti-inflammatory, moisturising, conditioning, soothing and anti-aging. Symphytum officinale (comfrey) oil is an astringent and a toner that promotes skin regeneration. Achillea mille folium (yarrow) oil is similarly astringent, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. In our opinion, Hubble Bubble Organics Super Skin Saver Potion No 2 is a very effective moisturiser for sensitive and problematic skin.
