I have to talk about Waitrose gift buys I purchased recently. To those who don’t know Waitrose are the poshest supermarket chain in the UK and is the part of the John Lewis partnership. Simple as that! They stock, not just the usual brands, but also the more expensive products other supermarkets do not stock. They stock Neal’s Yard, Korres ,Balance Me and Yes to Carrots, brands you won’t normally see in other supermarkets.
As it was the Festive period, Waitrose offer a 3 for 2 gift offer and I succumbed to the temptation being offered! The first thing I picked up was the Neal’s Yard English Lavender set. I often go to the shop in Brighton but can’t me a decision on what to get! This set was a nice sample to try and had in the set the Bath & Shower gel and the body lotion. The wonderful thing is that they are organic, non-animal tested and British. I’m looking for ward to trying this and the smell is very much like when you brush your hand through Lavender.
The Balance Me super smoothing hand cream duo was an easy choice as you all know I like my hands creams! The set included the super moisturising and the Rose Otto hand creams. This is yet another award winning British brand and I will review them later for you.
The freebie was the Lanolips Christmas Essentials. The set included the Rose Hand Balm intense and the Ointment Multi Purpose Balm. This is an Australian award winning company and they use natural ingredients for their products. This is new to me and I have often looked at them in Boots but never bought them but as this was the freebie I thought I better try them. The hand balm has an old fashioned smell but it does leave the hands silky smooth. The Ointment is thicker than I thought and I have tried some on my lips as they were dry and it has helped me.
So, many thanks Waitrose for offering such lovely products!
