A gorgeous natural moisturiser
Do you love herbs? Do you like having skin?
Then you need some Lyonsleaf products in your life.
Lyonsleaf are Ben and Vicky Lyons, some thoroughly good eggs who own a small holding in the Mendip Hills. They have pigs, sheep and herbs on their land, from which they make sublime skin products.
You can find out more about them here.
I am going to champion Lyonsleaf because their stuff has knocked me for six, it’s under £10, and it seems to be made with thought, intelligence, and care.
I stumbled across their stall one Sunday morning at a market in Bristol. One sniff of their Organic Shea Butter and I was hooked.
The ingredient list reads like something an angel would sing in a wildflower meadow: “Sweet almond oil, calendula, vitamin E oil and organic shea butter, lavender essential oils…”
I slather this on at night, after a hot bath, and my skin does a happy dance. It smells good enough to eat but not in a sickly fake-strawberry way; it smells like a lavender field in your nose.
THAT’S A LAVENDER FIELD. IN YOUR NOSE. YOU DON’T GET THAT FROM A BOTTLE OF SUPERDRUG’S OWN.
I have dry skin on my arms and legs but a week of using this and it feels softer and smoother. The product is also suitable for eczema or psoriasis. It’s gorgeously rich and makes your skin smell and feel like it’s been on holiday for about, ooh, a year.
I am running out of imaginative similes but I am very keen to impress upon you how good this stuff is. And I have tried expensive lotions and this is better.
If you are a knackered first-time mum, a knackered working mum, a knackered stay-at-home mum, or just looking to show yourself, or someone in your life, a bit of PROPER LOVE, then BUY THIS.
