Who’d of thought you would be shopping at Holland & Barrett for all your must have beauty buys? The brand has been revolutionised with it’s new chain of ‘More’ stores and having been to the launch of the Plymouth branch (which you can read more about here) I can assure you they have so much to offer and the choice is vast. The beauty section is bigger than you expect and packed full of beautiful natural products including interactive displays and products you can make yourself.
The first range I have been trying out over the last few weeks is by Dr. Organics, a multi award winning brand that utilises the finest natural and organic ingredients wherever possible. The products are of a high quality with formulas that work and have a luxurious feel.
Dr. Organic Rose Otto Body Wash is heavenly scented and if you love the smell of roses, then you must try this. The scent just surrounds you in the shower as you wash and leaves you feeling uplifted and energised ready for the day ahead. Packed with heaps of natural ingredients including Organic Rose Otto Oil, Aloe Vera, Limeflower, Chamomile, Passionflower, Calendula plus Geranium and Clove Essential Oils.
Next up is Dr. Organic Organic Snail Gel Eye Serum, which I have to admit sounds rather strange, but you’d never know it contained snail gel if it didn’t mention it on the box. It comes in a handy to dispense tube and has a light creamy consistency that is easy to spread around the eye area leaving the skin feeling cool and firm. Along with snail secretion filtrate, this serum contains oils from safflower seed, olive fruit, candlenut, moringa seed along with aloe vera leaf juice, vitamin E and jujube seed extract. Loads of natural ingredients to boost your eye area and clinically proven to make you look 6 years younger within 4 weeks of use.
I’ve always loved painting my nails and hate to have them bare so finding the range of Zoya nail polishes in Holland & Barrett was amazing. The array of colours are gorgeous and I chose a shade called Freja, a shimmery dark grey that goes with pretty much anything to try out. The polishes are natural and organic with a long lasting formula that’s resistant to chipping. I found the polish lasted well and only had to remove it due to natural wear around the edges after over a week of wear. It also had a good sheen that I loved.
Who doesn’t love a bath bomb? An indulgent treat to add to a relaxing bath and Beauty Kitchen have come up with an array of 100% natural bath bombs to enjoy. They all look gorgeous and this ‘Moon Shine’ looks particularly sparkly and pretty. It smells incredibly relaxing and soothing packed full of lavender and rosemary to leave you ready for a good night’s sleep.
Ok, so this next one isn’t a beauty product, but if your vegetarian like me or perhaps on a vegan or a gluten free diet, then this product will revolutionise your lunchtime and snacks. If you don’t eat meat, or are fed up with cheese, then this granoVita organic Herb Pate is just the thing you need. Made from a yeast and tofu base there are five amazing flavours to choose from and I just love spreading them onto crackers or a chunk of fresh bread. Totally delicious and a really tasty snack, I highly recommend this for a savoury treat!
As you can see above a lovely selection of products that I have been able to try from the Holland & Barrett More Store, some incredible products that you maybe wouldn’t expect to find in the store – the new ‘More’ store concept has really opened it’s doors to a wider audience and with the high standard of products available, it’s well worth a look inside.
