Liz Earle Orange Flower Botanical Body Wash and Nourishing Botanical Body Cream

I've used the Liz Earle Orange Flower Botanical Body Wash and Nourishing Botanical Body Cream, periodically, for a good many years now (on both myself and my children). These are 'lifesavers' when my skin is feeling stressed, dried out or sensitive (or if I'm just a bit fed up!).

The body wash  is a clear gel which is very concentrated so you only need to use a small amount.

As you can see, it does not contain any lauryl/laureth sulphates.  I've used this body wash after waxing with no burning or stinging at all and also taken it on holiday to use after a day in the sun as it's very soothing.

Once you get 'lathered up' (which it does pretty well), it releases the gorgeous (but not overwhelming) aroma    which just reminds me of summer - a sweet orangey lavender type thing!  Leaves skin soft, cleansed and not at all dried or stripped.


All Liz Earle products are packed full of  'good things' and this body cream is no exception - 

Naturally active ingredients include shea butter and avocado oil to soften, soothing echinacea, toning hops, antioxidants natural source vitamin E and beta-carotene to help protect.

The cream is not at all sticky, heavy or greasy, it's almost as if it's been whipped up!  It sinks in easily and leaves my skin comfortable and hydrated. I've used this directly after shaving as it calms my skin.  Again, you don't need a lot of product and the smell is amazing!

Various sizes of both the Liz Earle Orange Flower Botanical Body Wash and Nourishing Botanical Body Cream are available directly from Liz Earle or in Liz Earle stores and you can also usually buy from QVC or John Lewis.

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer

This iconic pre-shampoo treatment is suitable for all hair types.

Simply dampen hair slightly with water and apply the appropriate amount - I think it's between 1 and 4 pumps - depending on hair type and length etc. I tend to concentrate on mid lengths and ends.  Leave on for the required time - which is said to be between 10 and 20 minutes. For me, the longer it's left on the better - apparently it can also be left in overnight. Then just shampoo and condition as normal.

I have fine, frizzy, highlighted hair and use hair straighteners every other day so obviously suffer from dry, frazzled ends.  This treatment really is the business, it makes such a difference to the condition of my hair, softer, shinier and so much more manageable.

Elasticizer usually retails at around £22.50 for 150ml, so when this came up on QVC  as their beauty pick of the month £55.00 for 1 litre, I didn't hesitate! As you can see from above pic it's a hefty size and will last and last for ages - fantastic value!

Happy hair days girls!
