Edible Beauty Coco Bliss Intensive Repair Review (and a discount!)

Being organic or natural isn't enough for me - products also have to perform. 
I live with the philosophy of quality over quantity, and I'd rather have a small handful of effective products than dozens of so-so ones. 

Edible Beauty is an Australian skincare brand based on the philosophy that what you put on your skin should be good enough to eat. Edible Beauty products contain only the highest grade plant-based ingredients, both certified organic and from wildcrafted sources.

The skin is our largest organ, and 70% of what we put on our skin is absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Edible Beauty was developed by naturopath and nutritionist Anna Mitsios. 

Edible Beauty Australia offer edible skin care products, herbal beauty elixirs and wild-crafted exotic teas containing evidence-based therapeutic botanicals designed to have you glowing both inside and out. Anna is passionate about using nutrition through food and herbs to achieve radiance, vitality and bountiful youth.

Edible Beauty is also both cruelty free and vegan.

I chose the No.2 Citrus Rhapsody Radiance Tonique, & Desert Lime Flawless Micro-Exfoliant and the & Coco Bliss Intensive Repair. I'll be reviewing each of these separately over the next week. 


I'm going to start off with the packaging. You all know how a product looks is almost as important to me as the ingredients, and how it performs (my "PPP" criteria - purity, performance & packaging)

Edible Beauty uses Miron Violet Glass to package their skincare - this not only protects the contents from harmful UV rays, preventing damage over time, but it also enhances the high energy of the bottles' contents.

Edible Beauty say:

"The secret of Miron Violet Glass packaging is the violet spectral range (720 – 770 Bio herz), which can permanently activate and energise molecular structures, so that the healing energy of substances stored in the glass doesn’t “escape”. In fact, Miron Violet Glass maintains and even enhances the high energy of the bottle or jar’s contents for a long period of time. It also acts to potentise and vitalise water and liquid extracts.

Appreciation for the special protective qualities of violet glass can be traced back to ancient Egyptian civilization, when valuable essences and natural healing products were kept in gold and violet glass containers.

By using Miron Violet Glass, you can feel confident that the energy and vitality of what you are applying on and in your body has been potentised and vitalised, enhancing your beauty and health benefits, inside and out."

The glass appears black, except when held up to the light, you can just see the violet colour coming through the glass. The jar lids and spray nozzle are both made of glossy black plastic, and feel very high quality.  The white labels are waterproof so there is no issue with wet areas (ie bathroom)

I really love the quality of the packaging - it feels absolutely luxurious and looks gorgeous on the shelf. 


Edible Beauty & Coco Bliss Repair 

The Edible Beauty & Coco Bliss Repair is an intense hydrating mask or night cream that deeply nourishes the skin, reduces redness, and boosts plumpness. 

 For the first few weeks I was using the Coco Bliss as a night cream. A little goes a very long way with this, so I'd barely made a dent in it. It absorbs quickly, and feels very light on the skin, leaving not a trace of the greasiness I always fear when it comes to creams. 

 I usually apply it after I've applied a toner and facial oil. I was applying my facial oil after the Coco Bliss, at first, but my skin seemed oily by the next morning, so I switched the order, and it seems to have fixed that. 

 Within the first few days of using the Coco Bliss as a night cream, I noticed my skin was plumper, firmer, more hydrated (and I didn't think it wasn't) and had a beautiful glow, and my skin tone appeared more even in general. 

Then I tried it as a mask. My skin looked even better

 I use it as a mask once a week, and a cream every second night, or when my skin feels like it needs extra TLC. After removing the mask my skin was not only glowing, but any redness was reduced or barely visible (I don't really have any redness to my skin in general, only what occurs around those pesky hormonal blemishes or breakouts), my pores were less visible and my skin overall was smooth, plump and fresh. 

When using as a mask, after cleansing with the & Desert Lime Flawless Micro-Exfoliant, I pat my skin dry, then apply a thick, even layer of the Coco Bliss all over my skin. 

As a mask, the & Coco Bliss Intensive Repair gives a slight tingling sensation when you first apply it, that doesn't happen when using it as a night cream. Also, you don't have to put heaps on, just a nice even layer. As I mentioned earlier, a little goes a long way. It absorbs quickly, so you want it to be thick enough to be visible when using it as a mask, but more than that is unnecessary. 

Edible Beauty recommend leaving it on for 10-15min, but sometimes I go over time and end up with it on for 20mins or so. After treatment time is complete, I rinse off with warm water and a knitted cotton wash cloth. I'll pat dry, then finish with the No.2 Citrus Rhapsody Radiance Tonique and my current facial oil

 The reason I use a knitted cotton cloth is because it offers a light exfoliation, but it is super soft and not at all abrasive! 


The & Coco Bliss Intensive Repair comes in a 50ml jar - if you are only using it as a night cream, it will last forever. If you're using it as a mask, however, you'll obviously go through it faster, depending on the amount and how often you are using it. I've been using it for several weeks and still have well over three quarters of the product remaining. 

 The Coco Bliss Intensive Repair contains: 

Purified Water, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa Butter), Cetearyl Olivate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Sorbitan Olivate, Camellia Oleifera (Camellia) Seed Oil*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Sodium Starch Octenyl Succinate, Calcium Pantothenate, Maltodextrin, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Pyridoxine HCL, Silica, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Punica Granatum Extract (Pomegranate), Acronychia Acidula (Lemon Aspen)*, Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Oil, Glycerin, Leuconostod Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Extract, Populus Tremuloides Bark Extract, Gluconolactone, Pelargonium Asperum (Rose Geranium) Oil, Hyacinthus Orientalis (Hyacinth).

*Denotes organic ingredient

Shea and Cocoa Butter are known for their hydrating properties, but they also work to decrease redness and enhance the skin's natural collagen production. B vitamins also work to reduce redness and irritation. Vitamin E oil enhances the skin's natural healing ability (works beautifully on scars, too) and promotes youthful glowing skin. The Coco Bliss is also rich in antioxidants including Pomegranate and Acai, which are rich in Vitamin C and have a brightening action. The Australian Botanical Lemon Aspen is rich in antioxidants and may enhance the appearance of silky smooth skin. 

Overall

This is an absolutely divine little product and a luxury experience - and I never would have dreamed one crème or mask could do so much! The & Coco Bliss Intensive Repair retails for $57.00AUD, which in my opinion is actually excellent value for how effective this product is, and also how little you need. This one is definitely not moving from my skincare ritual. 

Edible Beauty are offering Megsy-Jane readers a massive 20% off all orders with code megsyjane for a limited time - so now is a brilliant time to stock up or try something new! If you haven't yet experienced Edible Beauty, I highly recommend making this your #1 purchase. 

Stay tuned for Part 2 & 3, where I'll review the No.2 Citrus Rhapsody Radiance Tonique and the &Desert Lime Flawless Micro-Exfoliant!
