Happy Wednesday my loves. I hope you have had an amazing day. I have had a busy yet chilled day. I’ve managed to do so many things as well as be able to relax and sort of tan(ish) in the garden.
Today my computer hasn’t been on my side. I had pretty much finished this post and then my computer crashed and lost everything!
As you can see from the title, tonight’s post is a new review. I have been waiting to upload this, I wanted to give it a fair trial before I told you my thoughts.
Read before continuing:
This is not a paid post. The brand kindly gifted the item to me.
All opinions and photographs shared are my own. You DO NOT have permission to use them in any way.
Buddha beauty has now become a huge part of my skincare routine, it’s overtaken my Anew products and has quickly become one of my favourites.
For those of you who don’t know, I have really sensitive skin, so I have to be careful with trying new brands, scents, creams/sprays/oils. When Buddha beauty were advertising for bloggers on Twitter I jumped at the chance because their products are vegan and it’s cruelty free!
The product arrived super quickly and the communication between the company has been amazing. Once the product arrived I headed over to their site, and did a little research.
Here is what the site says on my product:
The following information has been taken directly from https://www.buddha-beauty.com/product-page/daily-defence-coenzyme-q10-daily-moisturiser
Anti-ageing & Energising
Our CO-Q1O moisturiser helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles providing the skin with the energy needed to repair the skin from damage.
This coenzyme stimulates the skin cell activity needed in order to eliminate toxins.
As we age, this process slows down resulting in dull, tired skin therefore CO-Q10 helps to brighten, giving the skin a youthful glow. Medium consistency.
Ideal For: All Skin types, Mature Skin
Please note this product comes in an airless system tube. There is no inner tube to bring the product up. Simply pump your container and the base inside the bottle will rise to bring the cream to the top. On some occasions considerable pumping needs to be carried out.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Apply a small amount of product to face and neck avoiding the delicate eye area.
Gently tap and blend into skin evenly.

I cannot find a fault with the brand, website or product. I love how the website has more than enough information (it’s always better to have more then less!) I determined that there was nothing harmful to my skin inside the product, so I would give it a try.
I have never smelt Neroli before, to be honest, I didn’t even know what it was or how to pronounce it! To begin with I put one pump on my hand, blended it into my skin and smelt it.
I’m going to be straight with you, the smell is not my most favourite smell, I don’t really know how to describe it. It’s certainly not unpleasant but it’s definitely something I have never had before. It was a shock.
I have used this every day, day and night and I have definitely seen a difference. Normally in the morning, my face is red, blotchy and very dry, after using this, I have noticed that my face no longer has dry patches and my face isn’t as red and angry looking.
I’m usually in a warm/hot climate due to work, so I tend to sweat (tmi I’m sorry!) due to sweating my face begins to go red and blotchy again, causing dry patches on my cheeks. This has also decreased. I have been lucky enough to sunbathe the past few days, which would normally set my skin into a bloody frenzy, but using this has definitely had a positive effect.
I definitely recommend this, I have just added another one to my basket (they’re only £12) they have other scents too which I have also added to my basket. I absolutely love the fact that this brand is cruelty free and is vegan!
I’m trying out more vegan products, so if you know of any, please drop me a message. Buddha beauty also sell face masks and other products, not just a fab face moisturiser. I would recommend that you check out their website (link above) and have a read about their services.
Thank you all so much for reading, I’m sorry this post is a little late, had an unforeseen incident. I hope you enjoyed reading my review, if you did, please leave a like and comment below.
I’ll be back on Friday with a new post, hope to see you all there.
Have a great evening,
Lots of love,
