The organic pharmacy review

Hand Cream – Marigold and Comfrey

This has a beautiful fresh flowery scent and sinks in quickly. I wouldn’t say it’s as protective as a hand balm (if you are going to be gardening etc) but it’s perfect those of us who hate that greasy feeling other hand creams leave behind. It left my hands feeling moisturised for around 12 hours.

Antioxidant Lip Balm 

Every now and then I come across a lip balm or lipstick which immediately gives me a sore throat. I’ve never been able to find a common factor in the ingredients to be able to figure out why. I’m going to be using this as a foot balm from now on as my feet are very dry and this balm is already making a positive difference to them.

Face Cream – Double Rose Rejuvenating

This cream also sinks in quickly and has a very light formulation which gently moisturises skin without making it greasy a few hours later. After using this for a week my skin was left naturally moisturised and looked a little more radiant This is the perfect ‘every day’ moisturiser for me.

    I love their cleansing face gel but it’s so expensive! Totally worth the money though x

      I’ve got so many cleansers at the moment I need to use them up. I think if you find a product that makes a massive difference to your skin then it’s worth paying extra – especially if you’ve tried other cheaper products that haven’t had the same effect.
