What we say: Leanne and I both tried out this product along with my sister who often steals things from my room. We like it, it leaves hair feeling and looking good. Milkshake Whipping Cream Detangles hair in an instant and leaves a salon shiny finish. I am sure my hair also took less time to dry when using. It smells good enough to eat and according to my sister and Yvonne it doesn’t taste all that bad, not exactly good but not awful (eating is not recommended). It is the perfect quick treat for hair, providing great results for a night out. The only thing we would say is be carful not to apply too much or you will need to wash hair again.

You can buy the product Here it retails for £14.79 for a more than generous size.

Elemis Freshskin Tired Eyes Soothing Eye Rescue

Elemis Freshskin Tired Eyes Soothing Eye Rescue- Part of my spa at home reviews.

What they say: Refreshes, hydrates and reduces puffiness around the delecate eye area.

What we say: we all agreed that this was cooling and soothing to the eye area but couldn’t decide if it was due to it being cold and wet or due to its ingredients. I use the product more than the others and I have to say it was great for weakening up my eyes during the day when using the computer and first thing in the morning. It does refresh and give a wide awake feeling. I can’t confirm the reducing of puffiness claim and will update if this changes with continued use.

What they say: The hand therapy ingredients work together to sooth and moisturise hands as well as conditioning cuticles and nails. ingredients include Shea butter and Myrrh extract. Formulated without parabens, lauryl sulfates, mineral oil, and propylene glycol.

What we say: A couple of us are long term fans of Crabtree and Evelyn products and this was the perfect opportunity to rediscover exactly why. The hand therapy creams are trustworthy in delivering results. Soft subtle hands in no time, softening cuticles and moisturising skin. My favourite was the new edition to the brand Tarocco Orange, eucalyptus and sage, the other girls found this one a little sweet smelling and preferred the exotic scent of India Hicks Spider Lily.

We would definitly recommend purchasing hand therapy. It’s the perfect treat for yourself or a present for someone else. Your hands or theirs will thank you for it.

What they say: Dr Bronners magic pure castile soaps are unlike any you have ever used before. The range of gentle soaps are infused with different essential oils and a combination of coconut, jojoba, hemp and olive oil leaving skin feeling silky smooth and refreshed without being aggressive or using synthetic foaming agents, thickners or preservatives.

What we say: The 18 different uses include some which I would never dream of trying out, never mind inflict on willing volunteers, soap toothpaste anyone?… Thought not. There are a couple of gems to try out. I used the soap as a shaving lotion and loved it, no irritation like I can often get from other shaving aids and it left my skin silky smooth and glowing. We tried the baby mild non scented soap but they do offer a range of fragranced soaps . The beauty of this product being unscented means you can add your own favourite essential oil and taylor to you preferences. In all honesty the girls seemed uninspired when I pulled this bottle out the bag, it looks plain and simple and essentially it is. The uninspired faces turned to horror when I explained some of the different uses: washing clothes, washing mouth, washing body, and even as a wash for intimate parts (this is no longer recommended by the company but was an original use of the soap) nope still no enthusiasm shown. That was until I pulled the bunny out the hat tah dah! Use it as a body scrub, eyes light up and smiles on faces as I explained you could add your choice of scent and then add your choice of scrub, coffee to banish cellulite, sugar or salt to create a more thorough scrub. Teatree essential oil for invigorating, i could go on and on with combinations. Taking DIY spa to a whole new level! Due to time we have yet to try the scrubs but I couldn’t help sharing our little discovery. I will report back with results when I have them.

Oh I almost forgot the most important part, the soap retails from £1.99 here. We would all buy it again due to the bargain price and recommend it to friends for a fun experiment. Perfect for a travel essential as it can be used as travel clothing wash, body wash, shampoo etc.
