I am a big Cowshed fan, as you can tell by some of my reviews, and I would like to talk about two products which I’ve used up recently. They are Gorgeous and Knackered Cows body lotions.
But first of all, I’d like to mention that Cowshed recently had a relaunch (see here): they had a re-design of their packaging which now look more sophisticated and chic but they also changed their cheeky names. While I do get that maybe not everyone would appreciate “Horny Cow” name, for example, I sure did, and loved the playfulness of the line. That was something that made them unique and cool.
Here is what we’ve got now (besides the two I’ve got here):
Since we are talking about the new candles today, I though I’d show you my latest purchase – a Cowshed mini candle set.
There are three candles, 38 gr each, and they all retail for £16.50.
Knackered Cow Relaxing Candle
Lavender Essential Oil: naturally relaxing, soothing, restorative and balancing. Eases tired and aching muscles. A highly versatile oil with rejuvenating and antiseptic qualities.

Another week, another shampoo review? Looks like that!
Today I want to show you Cowshed’s Cowlick Gentle Shampoo. I have picked up mine ages ago, back in September, I think, or even earlier and am already done with it.
This is actually a Sulphates (SLS, SLES, chemical which helps the product to foam) free shampoo, Cowshed use soapwort instead, but I did not even notice that when was getting it. I just needed a new shampoo and decided to try this one.
Unfortunately, Cowlick did not work that well for my hair. I am not sure what is the reason for that but I wasn’t very happy with the way it (hair) looked afterwards, wasn’t so smooth and shiny, as I’d like it to be. Plus I had to wash it earlier than I would like…
The things that I did love were the
My love affair with Cowshed continues, this time I have picked up their Lazy Cow Soothing Bath & Body Oil. It is originally £20 for 100 ml but, since it was on sale for around £14, I had to get it.
This oil contains essential oils of jasmine, chamomile and sandalwood. I personally really love the relaxing and calming woody oriental scent. It is quite subtle and not as concentrated as I’d like it to be, but it’s still nice.
Multi-purpouse products are always a win-win situation, so, as you can guess, I am very happy with my purchase.
As my skin is very dry, this is a God-sent product for me. I use it as a bath oil, as a body oil and as a massage oil.
I’d like to mention that
I am properly in love with my Cowshed soaps and with the Grumpy Cow body lotion, too.
I actually love everything, starting from names and design to the performing qualities of the product.
As for this lotion, it smells really nice, and contains essential oils of red mandarin, grapefruit and petitgrain. Very uplifting and invigorating.
The scent actually does stay on the skin for some time which is really nice as I do love my scented body products. I am not the
