I have already written about this brand – Lyonsleaf’s beauty balm has been a life saver for my dry and eczema prone skin. I’ve even used it as a night treatment when skin has been particularly dry on my face.
Another item that was sent to me by Vicky was this goats milk, manuka honey & calendula soap which is 100% natural and doesn’t include any SLS or other soap ingredients that can be inflammatory to sensitive skin. It uses saponified olive oil, coconut oil and shea butter – all soothers of sensitive skins (certainly soothing of mine).
I had initially thought the goats milk would be quite a strong smell on skin, but it is not at all overpowering. I thought I could smell it a bit in the shower but none of the scent was left on skin, which is OK for those of you who do not like the pungent smell of goats milk. The manuka honey and calendula flower are soothing, whilst the saponified olive oil, coconut oil and shea butter are cleansing without being harsh on skin (none of that taut feeling afterwards or itching associated with regular soap).
100g costs £4 so isn’t very cheap but for those of you who struggle with the harshness of regular soap, this is probably a wise investment. And it isn’t that much more than some of the other natural soaps on the market. Additionally, you would supporting a brand that is based in Somerset and who makes their products from ingredients sourced locally and responsibly. A win-win in my book.
