Neal’s Yard Remedies
I’ve been focusing in on creating a skincare routine and have compiled a few pieces. My last post about L’Occitane was the first step and the second is Neal’s.
I was on my way to Frome when mum said there was a Neal’s Yard factory store on our route so we stopped into the store and bought a whole bunch of stuff.
We tried the infused tea and lemonade then perused the shelves for goodies.
Mum bought a bag full of hand cream and I of course got face stuff because I want to stay looking 23 for as long as possible. I picked the Orange Flower Facial oil, a Be Lovely Bath and Shower Gel, an Orange Flower Facial Wash and a few other bits.
I really love the vibe of Neal’s, the lady behind the counter really talked with passion about the products and answered my questions and I learnt a little too. Apparently Neal’s use blue bottles to preserve to products the blue deflects the sun so Neal’s don’t have to add preservatives into their products.
I’m really sold on Neal’s and can’t wait to have glowing skin.
Have you guys tried Neal’s? What’s your favourite product? what should I get next?

L’Occitane has come to Bournemouth.
L’Occitane En Provence
I am more then excited about it! I’ve read and seen a lot about L’Occitane but never had anything myself. I popped in the other day and came away with a couple things.
I loved the whole atmosphere of the bight orange/yellow store and wanted to get my hands on everything. I knew I wanted a new moisturiser to combat my oil prone skin in the summer.
Helped by the beautiful assistant who was more then helpful making sure there were no rose extracts in anything I liked and to guide me to making the right decision. I was given the option of Pivoine Sublime and something else, but I was drawn to PS from the off.
Pivoine Sublime – Perfecting Cream
For all skin types, made with peonies from the Drôme region of France. It smells amazing. It helps correct skin texture and colour, and hydrates my skin to no end. it’s quite a thick cream but sinks beautifully into the skin making it feel light and fresh. Peonies are one of my favourite flowers so, I’m in love.
I was so bold over by Pivoine Sublime that I got the Pivoine Flora shower gel! What can I say? I’m a sucker for a good smell.
I can’t wait to use the shower gel and feel like a true flower power girl. I was also given a few cheeky samples to try out which i am excited for.
I’m so excited to try some higher end skin care, and get into a more accomplished skin care routine.
What have you bought in L’Occitane? have you been to the Bournemouth Store?
