When it comes to trying out a brand for the very first time, it's always useful to test out samples and travel sizes of their products first, especially if you have sensitive skin. Soap N Skin's 'Try Me Selection Box' let's you do just that and it makes a lovely gift too.
I always enjoy promoting homegrown British brands, and Soap N Skin are an artisan English company that I've been introduced to recently. They handcraft all of their own products and only use pure, natural and organic based formulas with no additives, artificial colours, parabens and sulphates etc. Everything from Soap N Skin is also free from synthetic fragrances as they use naturally derived essential oils instead. Their packaging is very traditional English; simple but elegant, and I could definitely see them gracing the shelves of luxury hotel bathrooms and countryside retreats.
Onto the products themselves, I've been testing out their Try Me Selection Box which includes four of their bestselling products in generous travel sizes:-
Soap N Skin Purifying Energy Burst Body Wash - Lavender & Lime with Calendula Oil (150ml)
A very gentle SLS free formula that's great for my sensitive, eczema prone skin. I generally associate Lavender with bedtime/evening products, but when it's combined with Lime like in this Body Wash, it's surprisingly uplifting and smells gorgeous.
Soap N Skin Soothing Body Butter - Rose & Sandalwood with Neem Oil (50ml)
Deeply hydrating body butter packed full of nourishing ingredients such as Sweet Almond Oil, Rosehip Oil, Vitamin E and Shea, Cocoa and Mango Butters. Lovely texture, absorbs easily and is delicately scented with Rose & Sandalwood - what more could I ask for? It's also gentle enough to use on the face if you have dry/mature skin.
Soap N Skin Balance & Nourish Hand & Body Soap - Neroli & Patchouli with Jojoba Oil (100g)
I don't use soap in the shower, but I do love a good quality bar of soap for washing my hands with. This one's SLS free and I adore the Neroli & Patchouli scent.
Soap N Skin Stimulate & Invigorate Shampoo - Rosemary & Peppermint with Argan Oil (150ml)
Rosemary and Peppermint are always a winning combination in my book and this shampoo is great for those who have troublesome, sensitive scalps like mine. It's gentle but still gets the job done, and most importantly it feels wonderfully soothing and it helps to keep dandruff at bay.
Soap N Skin Try Me Selection Box* retails for £25 and is available direct from soapnskin.com
