Pamper gifts you will want to keep
Beauty products are one of the most frequently given gifts. The high street pamper products from the likes of The Body Shop, Neal's Yard Remedies and Clarins are lovely, but why not give something a little more individual. There are many small businesses producing some fantastic body products that are often SLS, animal product and paraben free.
Elaine Stavert set up The Littlecote Soap Co. after moving to Buckinghamshire. In her workshop she produces a range of beautifully packaged natural handmade soaps, bath products, skin-care and toiletries all made by hand. The pink champagne range is a great gift for any celebration.
Jane Maddern also makes all her soaps by hand in her workshop in Axbridge. Her soaps are beautifully wrapped in a range of cotton fabrics hand-picked by Jane, as an added extra you can select a personal message soap. I really like the sound of the Lavender and Chamomile soap, ideal for a relaxing bath. Jane also makes balms and handcreams.
If you want to try before you buy then Wild-Olive offers free soap samples. You simply pay £1.95 p&p to get three soap samples. If you review the soaps then you will also get a voucher for money off your next order. Wild-Olive also make a range of lovely sounding bath salts including energising seaweed.
If you are looking for delicious sounding handcreams and body butters then SkinnyDip is a great website to visit. Made using Malvern spring water and a range of natural ingredients, the SkinnyDip products such as Soaked to the Skin, look and sound fantastic. This gorgeous box of eight fragrant bath fizzles would be the perfect pamper gift.
Many of the handmade soaps and beauty products out there look good enough to eat and Cottons products are no exception. Made without artifical colours, fragrances or animal products, their use of high quality ingredients and pure essential oils makes a gorgeous pamper gift. You can now find Cottons at Not On The High Street.
