When I was a kid I used to spend a lot of time with my nan, she was amazing and the one person I used to always want to be around. I remember her taking me and my cousin many places like to the beach, theme parks and the zoo… She always had something to do with us. My nan also used to take me on holiday sometimes in the summer to her holiday destination of choice Jersey. I don’t have any pictures of our trips there as it was long before we had digital cameras we would take everywhere and what ones I do have are packed up in boxes from when I moved out of home a long time ago but I do have memories of going to this beautiful island with beautiful beaches where I would play all day while my nan soaked up the rays, we would go walking along the north coast and always find somewhere nice to eat, it always seemed like everything was so peaceful and I had no worries in the world. Some of my best childhood memories were spent there and the fact I got to spend them with my nan is what made them all the more special.
Seascape Soothe Body Butter* – £22
Hand Cream* – £16
Over the last couple of weeks I have been trying out these two amazing products from Seascape which is based in Jersey where they use locally sourced produce including Jersey Lavender and Jersey Beeswax with some of their other products containing a whole host of other ingredients sourced in Jersey.
The first product I have been trying is the Soothe Body Butter which is perfect for using after a stressful day after a nice long bath as it has a really relaxing lavender scent to it but not the type of lavender that makes you feel a bit overwhelmed but more an almost sweet relaxing scent that’s not too overpowering. This is perfect for helping with a good nights sleep too as it makes you feel so calm and relaxed you almost want to drift off immediately while applying it. I’ve also found that it absorbs beautifully into the skin just don’t be too alarmed by how hard it looks in the jar as it swiftly melts once it heats up in your hands and on your skin. The great thing about the Soothe Body Butter is if there are any expectant mums out there worrying about trying them because the essential oils in some products that contain them can be harmful these contain pregnancy safe essential oils and the Soothe Body Butter also helps to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
The second product I have been trying is the Refresh Hand Lotion which smells really uplifting and relaxing at the same time, the product itself is huge so it sits in my bathroom for everyone to use but its a beautiful hand cream which leaves my hands feeling silky soft. It absorbs into the skin in moments leaving no tacky residue that some hand creams can leave and leaves your hands feeling instantly refreshed and nourished.
