So I’m half way through the school Summer hols and yes it’s getting stressful, kids running out of things to do, wanting money, wanting sleepovers, money being tight, house a mess and all the rest of it; whilst also trying to fit blog posts in when I can. Therefore it’s always nice when I’m sent goodies for myself and just myself to try out and especially so when it happens to be any sort of beauty or pamper products.
I had not heard of Bath and Unwind before prior to them contacting me. They sell many beauty and pamper type products from many different brands. I have had a browse of their website and many products do seem to be cheaper than on other sites and places. It is well worth a look to find some beauty bargains.
Bath & Unwind offered to send me out a selection of their products. The three products I was sent all do different things. There is something for the skin, hair and even sleep; perfect for bathing and then unwinding.
I have tried a few dry shampoo products before but this is by far the best one so far. Firstly the scent is so much better, there is none of that hairspray scent with this one. Secondly there are two shades to choose from based on hair tone and of course being Moroccanoil; means it contains Argan oil. Any woman who cares about her locks will be familiar with Argan oil. It even contains UV protection to shield hair from the sun. Spray on tangled hair to detangle and leave smoother or give life to dull hair. It does leave a whitish/silver shimmer when first applied but this quickly fades once brushed.
It is £14.85 a can but I have not seen this product in shops or anywhere else and it really does wonders for my coloured hair.
Fear not, no badgers were harmed, or even used (as far as I’m aware!) making this product.
This could be classed as a natural sleep remedy. It’s a balm which can be applied to temples, cheeks, neck or face just before bed. It contains lots of lovely lavender to help you drift off into the land of nod. It is 100% natural too. Lavender is of course a well known sleep aid and relaxant so it does help a little if you can’t sleep.
It’s a little greasy at first but blends in, you don’t need to apply much and it smells lovely. It looks a little like wax and is really firm so I did have to press quite hard to get some out. This costs just £4.99 and it’s one of those products that will last a long time.
Steamcream is handmade in the UK and arrives in a choice of time. This beautiful floral tin is one of the limited edition tins. The cream inside is a multi-use moisturiser and is the perfect all rounder.
Steamcream has a lighweight texture that is infused with jojoba, almond oil and cocoa butter, it instantly softens and smoothes the skin on the face, hands, body and feet making it also great for travel.
The cream gives an instant cooling effect to my skin when applied and easily dries. It has a rather distinct scent and I can’t quite work out what it reminds me of. It is a product I like using. I can’t comment on the long term effects of using steam cream because I have not been using it that long and products like this take time to give any real results.
I will say that opening the tin was an absolute nightmare unfortunately. There is nothing to grip to pull it open and no space between the lid and tin to wedge much in. I was beginning to think it was faulty and somehow fused together permanently. In the end I had to use a really sharp knife to wedge it apart which then bent the tin a bit but at least it’s open now. I do think the tins need to made easier to get in as I am sure I won’t the only one who has problems opening one.
Steamcream tins start from £12.95.
I am enjoying all my products from Bath and Unwind.
