First of all, I apologise for a long absence. It was mainly due to the fact that someone (we all know that “someone” is not the word I want to use here) stole my Twitter account. And, while I did contact Twitter as soon, as I saw that, it was dragging on for ages, and instead of giving it back to me, it was blocked in the end.
Can’t believe I’ve spent 12 years of my life building and sustaining my account with such an outcome. This was the most appalling customer support I have ever experienced. The whole situation made me so angry that I had no desire to even update the website and had to take some time off. But let’s leave it at that. Life goes on…
By the way, you can follow me on Instagram for more regular updates.
Today I want to share about the products from a brand which doesn’t need an introduction. And that is Aesop! I have two products here which I wanted to talk about.
Why these two products in one post you may ask? What unites them is their unique scent.
AESOP Coriander Seed Body Cleanser (500ml ), £33
I love how the brand describes the fragrance as “unorthodox”, and it really is. Coriander is such a love or hate herb so it depends on your preferences.
Aesop combined coriander with black pepper and patchouli so you get that woody and spicy scent which is truly invigorating and refreshing. As I’ve already said, it has that truly one-of-a-kind aroma to it. The scent fills the bathroom and makes you feel great. And this is exactly what we all want.
You can use it
Aesop is, hands down, one of the coolest brands out there.
Who doesn’t love their apothecary style chic bottles and the most original and incredible scents?
And today I want to tell you about one of their really cool products – Poo Drops.
If you, like me, hate those cheap and horrendous aerosols – keep on reading.
Not only it looks absolutely beautiful, clean label and stylish brown glass bottle, it also smells incredible, and, as the name suggests, masks the
I love me a relaxing/anti-stress/calming/you-get-the-deal roller balls which I can carry in my bag. And today I want to share about three which I am currently using.
This is the most affordable one out of three, and it is my second tube of this gem. I also find that this is the strongest one out of them all. Origins suggest dabbing some on the back of your neck, temples and earlobes. And it has that instant calming and cooling effect thanks to the eucalyptus and peppermint. Some of my friends who were skeptical about it tried and were converted. Unfortunately, the roller ball was a LE and it comes in a little bottle which is not as convenient (I had it before).
While I did get it for the flights I have to
I really love getting samples of products, as they allow me to decide what products I should invest in, in the future. Recently I received a small sample of Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque (£27)with one of my on-line orders and I totally fell in love!
Although it was only 2.5 ml, it was enough for two applications actually. I’ve heard a lot of great things about Aesop Parsley Seed range but this was my first experience with it and I was blown away actually.
I have dry skin but recently had some break outs and this product really helped with those (along with other products that I used) and also made my skin incredibly soft, clean and fresh. And it did not feel dry or tight and did not make me want to apply tonnes of cream as soon, as possible. You know that feeling?
Smooth texture and pleasant herbal lavender scent were a big bonus, as well.
During the lock down, I’ve decided to research some smaller/independent British brands, and get some things from them. So today I want to share the results with you, and I will start with the Welsh brands. I have chosen 6 to feature. And there will be 2 parts, as, otherwise, the posts would be too long.
So get yourself a cup of Glengettie, stick on Tom Jones (sex bomb, sex bomb, you’re my seeeex boooom ) and have a read.
Catherine Zeta-Jones would approve!
All the photos of the beauty that is Wales are by me, promo photos of the products are from the brands.
The Good Wash Company website
This is quite a new brand founded just in 2018 in Barry by Mandy Powell, an ex Welsh International Hockey and Touch Rugby Player and Kelly Davies, a former Wales and Professional Footballer.
Shown: Soap £6.50; Good Bath Oil, £9.50; Glân Hand Sanitiser, £5; Luxury Soy Wax Candle, £17
Not only it looks super chic and high end, and ‘totally lysh’ (lush in English), as the ladies describe it but the brand also supports some good causes. You can read more about them here. The aim of the brand, according to the founders was to create a “luxury Welsh brand with a humble social conscience”.
This brand feels like a child of Aesop/Grown Alchemist and Le Labo (packaging wise) but for like half of the price.
