A few of my favourite beautifully British products

Here are a few of my favourite beautifully British home made products

With a big hype on the Queen’s Jubilee I have put together a few of my favourite British Products. I also think with current financial climate we should support our own country’s small businesses who make such wonderful products. The products I am going to reveal to you are made with care and will be much better for your skin than products from big companies that produce to the mass market pumped with loads of chemicals rather than actually caring for the consumers’ needs.

Laughing Bird

Tucked away in a converted stable situated in the village of Sling, North Wales, business partners Mark Thistlethwaite and Helen Lowe have developed their dream of using the very best of local and home-grown ingredients alongside fairly traded produce to create a sumptuous, wholesome and affordable range of body care products.

I have tried and love all their products but this Shea & Coca butter body cream with Moringa oil smells amazings and reasonalbe priced

Ruby Red

A Few of my favourite Winter Essentials

The temperature has suddenly dropped and so I thought it would be the perfect time to share a few of my favourite winter essentials with you.

We’ve also hit mid January which is always a difficult time for keeping on track with our New Years’ Resolutions – so I’ve also included a few products which will help you with a mid January boost!

Ruby Red cosmetics Organic Honey & Vanilla lip balm

As a therapist so many clients and friends ask me what is the best lip balm on the market and I must say I find this one of the best. Most lip balms just sit on the surface and are quite thick in texture so it may give you the feeling that it is moisturizing but it is actually doing opposite and making the problem worse.

The Ruby Red Honey & Vanilla lip balm is full of active plant ingredients organically certified olive oil and shea butter leaving the lip smooth and hydrated

Suitable for vegetarians and vegans

Company : Ruby Red cosmetics

      Neal’s Yard Wild rose balm

This is my winter rescuer! And a must have! It makes your skin look great and smells amazing. This product is a 3 in 1 product which is an added bonus.  It is designed as a cleanser, mask and treatment for lips, elbows and dry areas.  It is great for all skin types including dry and sensitive.

I love to use this product as a mask. You simply use a small amount all over face and neck and when you wake up you skin looks lovely and hydrated and glowing. It also helps with scarring.  It is a great product to have around winter as it give you more moisturizing properties than your usual cream

Company: Neal’sYard                                                                                                     You can buy this from any Neal’s yard retail store

Trilogy Gentle Exfoliating Scrub 

This is one of my favourite facial scrubs. You can use this all year round but it is especially great for these cold months as our skin tends to become more dry, sensitive and flakey. The Trilogy scrub will remove the layer of dead skin without leaving your skin more sensitive. Best to scrub once a week and will make you skin glowing and hydrated. Also by removing a layer of dead skin it makes your moisturiser more effective as you can’t moisturise dead skin.

Company:Trilogy

 Environ Hydrating Oil capsules

It is exactly what it says on the package, this gives the skin extra hydration especially in winter.  It is great for those who fly a lot and for those of you who are hitting the ski slopes – they are easy to travel with as they come in individual capsules. It contains anti-oxidents and vitamin A which will also protect your skin from the environment and improves cell regeneration. You just apply overnight under your moisturizer and wake up to super hydrated skin.

Company: Environ  you can retail only from environ stockist’s (I am a stockist so please contact me if you wish to place an order)

Detox!  My next best winter product is this great   Healthy Starter Pack

This 10 day Healthy start pack is great to help remove all those toxins we have consumed over the past couple of months either from alcohol or rich foods. It is always great to do a body cleanse every 3 months if not at least once a year and January is a great way to start.

You won’t drop a dress size straight away but by removing the toxins which grab onto fat and by clearing your internal system it will put you on the right track. No special diet is required but results are enhanced if you avoid alcohol, caffeine and red meat.

* You cant use when pregnant or on certain medication

Company: Natures sunshine

Lemon and Ginger Tea

For me Lemon and Ginger tea is a must have in winter as this delicious tea will helps fight off the Flu and colds. It is also great for all ages and has been used as a  natural remedy for centuries (Do we really know what they put in our cold and flu medicines nowadays?)  It is better if you are able to make this at home from the raw ingredients and adding honey but as most of us have a busy lifestyle it is always good to have a packet of this tea in your cupboard There are many Tea brands on the market but I really like QI tea’s as they are registered with the organic soil association so you know you are getting great ingredients.
