I’ve never been a lover of soap, even fancy or expensive handmade ones. I’ve usually either thought they were poorly made or had a bad reaction to them, plus I’ve never liked the feeling of my skin after using them, it’d feel extra tight and dry. So when Soapy Skin Ltd contacted me about doing a review, I was a bit nervous, but after reading all about their award winning Honey Oats Goats Milk Soap (it won the Janey Loves Platinum Award last year and quite recently it won a Silver Award in the Problem Skin Category from Free From Skincare), I was intrigued. I don’t think I’ve ever tried anything made from goat’s milk so I was curious as to how my sensitive skin would handle it.
Soapy Skin Ltd manufacture and sell beautifully crafted handmade natural soaps, using the best sourced ingredients available. You won’t find any irritants, harmful chemicals or parabens in their products.
In both Soapy Skin’s holistic and goat’s milk ranges they only use natural solid oils, such as coconut and palm, liquid oils such as olive oil, and butters such as shea to produce something your skin will love. Their soaps are also beautifully scented, using only 100% pure essential oils, which have been specially selected for their natural, positive, effects on the skin. And finally, all the botanical additives they use not only give the soaps a fantastic colour, but also act as a mild exfoliant as well as being beneficial to your skin.
Sweet Potion Perfumes was created by the super sweet Dash and currently has a collection of hand-blended perfume oils made using the highest quality, skin-friendly ingredients. Dash created Sweet Potion Perfumes wanting to make girls feel special and to boost their self confidence.
Dash was inspired by her mother who also created perfume oils; over the years she loved watching and going to the craft fairs with her mom, so she decided to create her very own little perfumery. Read More
21 25 29 31 (bluggh!) and it’s only these past few years where I’ve actually started to really, truly care about my skin, and it’s made all the difference.
Here are my current favourite skincare products, that I’ve been using for a while now and that really work for me.
I generally like to buy things when they’re offer, so when I needed some new skincare products and my go to brand wasn’t on offer I decided to use that as an opportunity to try some new brands and products.
I had heard good things about the Boots Botanics range and they had a lot of stuff for half price, so I went to my local Boots and sourced some new skincare goodies.
So what did I buy?
