The cream contains organic calendula extract, organic almond oil and lanolin to soothe and protect the skin. It also helps to keep the skin feeling velvety soft and helps to prevent it from becoming dried out.

Neal's Yard Remedies Oily & Combination Skincare Kit/Purifying Palmarosa range review

Neal’s Yard Remedies Discovery Kits are a new way to test out different Neal’s Yard skincare ranges without having to splash out a fortune on a collection of full size products. They have created kits focused around their main skincare collections and one for their award-winners. Each kit contains a collection of miniature/deluxe sample sizes of products from its corresponding range for you to test out and to decide wether you are interested in buying the full-sizes.

This is primarily beneficial because if you find that you don’t get on with a particular product, you won’t need to throw away the rest of the bottle and with it, your money.

Alternatively, they’re fantastic as gifts or for travel.

BeautyBlender & BeautyCleanser Solid review

The BeautyBlender is a small, egg-shaped sponge that is used for applying foundation, tinted moisturiser, BB cream, CC cream and so on. It is designed to provide a flawless finish to your makeup. It comes in three colours; bright pink, black and white.

The egg design helps to provide the perfect blend as it is seam-free. The lack of edges means that it doesn’t leave behind any noticeable streaks or lines on the face. The smaller side is also great for reaching into harder to reach areas such as around the nose or under the eyes and for applying concealer, too. 

It was created by top Hollywood makeup artist Rea Ann Silva and it is made of synthetic materials (but it doesn’t contain latex), is non-allergenic and also odour free. 

This set also comes with a solid cleanser bar for cleaning the BeautyBlender.

The Emu Oil Well Baby Wash and Baby Body Lotion are two parts to the baby skincare range by the brand. 

The products are all advertised as being gentle enough for your little ones skin and they all contain Emu Oil, which Emu Oil Well give a great description of on their website:

Paul & Joe Refreshing Skin Toner review

The Refreshing Skin Toner by Paul & Joe is a toner that provides gentle exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and moisture to leave the skin smooth and bright. It also tones the skin to minimise the appearance of pores and has aromatic benefits.

It contains kiwi extract that acts as a moisturiser and lemon and tea extracts that act as astringents. 

It comes packaged in a beautiful creamy white bottle that holds 200ml of toner and it also has an antique-style lid. It has a tiny hole on the top of the bottle for the toner to come out of. The whole Paul & Joe skincare and beauty range follows along with this packaging theme and even on its own it honestly looks amazing on anybodies dresser, but the most important part is obviously how well the product inside works.
