Do you look for skincare products that are natural, kind to the skin and British made?
Well you may want to check out this new range of facemasks from Ooharr as it ticks all three. Priced at just £1.20 they make an affordable treat for those times when you want a guilt free pamper session.
I had the opportunity to try a couple of masks from the range. (I won a twitter giveaway, lucky me!).
So far I have only tried the Rosie Glow deep cleansing mask, but I was impressed.
The mask itself is of the thick natural clay variety with Dead Sea salts that promise to help detoxify and draw out impurities from pores.
This is balanced out with nourishing Rose, Marula Oil and Palmarosa essential Oil.
There was more than enough Facemask in the sachet for myself so I shared it with my teenager daughter.
It smelt lovely, but then I’m a fan of anything rose scented.
Once removed my skin really was glowing. A couple of days on I feel my skin is still looking bright. I did have a couple of spots come out, but nothing major they cleared quickly, I put this down to my pores being cleaned out.
It has also had a good skin clearing effect on my teenangers skin, so I agree with Oohars claim that it is suitable for all skin types.
I’m now looking forward to trying the Dead Sea Cooler Deep Cleansing Mask next time I have a pampering session.
If you would like a review of that one then let me know in the comments section.
Sometimes in life you need to just sit back and relax. What better way is there to have a little ‘me time’ than an indulgent bath?
I am a huge fan of using bath bombs and oils to create a relaxing and fragrant bath, so I was more than excited to be sent some a selection Kneipp Sparkling Bath Tablets to try out. Thank you Graftonsbeauty.co.uk for the kind gift.
Kneipp is a natural body and skincare brand created in Germany. It has over 120 years of experience producing high quality natural products packed with essentials oils that are free from paraffin, silicone and mineral oils.
Priced at £1.95 the latest addition to the range are these sparkling bath tablets. They are available in arnica to sooth joint and muscles or Eucalyptus to assist with the clearing of the sinuses.
As my legs were aching soo much this morning after yesterday’s gym workout I decided now was a good time to try the arnica variety.
On contact with the water this produced a rich creamy lather before settling to a gentle fizz that lasted for a good amount of time. It also turned the water a lovely yellow colour.
The smell of the bath is amazing! It was very refreshing and relaxing. It actually lingered on my skin for a long time after my bath.
In terms of effectiveness this did ease the aches and pains I was feeling in my legs. I would say these effects are short term though, as they did return later.
Overall I have to say I really liked this product. It provided a gorgeous smelling bath and did ease my aches in the short-term. Priced at £1.95 this is also very good value for money when compared with the price of similar products in Lush.
I think these are great to have on stand by to help out with the aches and pains you can get after a tough workout.
I’m yet to try the Eucalyptus bath tablet but I’m saving it for that inevitable winter cold.
Have you tried anything from Kneipp before? Do you recommend any of their other products?

I hate to admit this but my poor feet are looking a bit grim at the moment. They deserve a pamper as through laziness I’ve been skipping my evening foot cream. Whoops!
It was about time then that I delved into my stash for something to help them out. Hello The Bodyshop Peppermint Reviving Foot Soak £7 and The Bodyshop Peppermint Intense Foot Rescue £9!
Not only does the foot soak feel great it smells AMAZING! This is a bit of a duel purpose product really as it sooths aching feet as well as the scent clearing out any wooly headiness you might be feeling.
To use all you do is dissolve a small handful of salts in warm water and then soak your feet whislt kicking back and doing something relaxing. Me, I chose to pick up a book. I’m currently reading Linsey Kelk’s Always The Bridemaid. That lady is funny, with a capital F!
After a good soaking I dried my feet before giving them the once over with a foot file, to remove any dead skin. Yugh I know!
I then applied the Intensive foot rescue which left my feet smelling and feeling all lovely and soft. This is a lovely thick cream that isn’t too greasy so absorbs well. Kind of a must have really if you don’t want to be sliding around all over the place after using it. Again the peppermint smell of this is soooo good!
Feet all fresh and pretty looking this was the perfect time to be trying out a new nail polish from Lottie London. I have the shade stand out which is a very metallic gold. I received mine in my #bigbloggersconference goody back but you can pick these up from Superdrug priced at £5.99.
I really should treat my feet to a pamper a bit more often, it’s one of those areas that I tend to neglect. Naughty me!
Have you tried anything from the Bodyshop Peppermint foot care range before? Are you kind to your feet or like me do you tend to neglect them a bit?
