The Konjac Sponge Company review

I love a good sponge! Not the Victoria version with jam and cream but a good supple one that lathers up nicely and helps scrub the day’s cobwebs away.

The lovely people at The Konjac Sponge Company sent us a selection of sponges to try and I picked up the 6 wave bath sponge and couldn’t wait to take it home!

What it says: Ideal for the whole family, this 100 per cent pure Konjac bath sponge sloughs off dead skin cells to gently exfoliate the body and give an all over cleanse.

Regular use can help reduce blemishes, ingrown hairs and help keep skin smooth and supple.

Well it is safe to say that this awesome sponge lives up to its description and is pretty fantastic. It is so luxurious and feels divine. With just a splodge of product, I was able to wash my whole body and the sponge was still full of bubbles and doing a brilliant job.

Made with 100 per cent natural vegetable fibre and 100 per cent cruelty free and certified vegan, this sponge is kind to your skin and the environment.

The icing on the cake (not Victoria) is that it is priced at just £10.99 which is a bargain as I can see this little beauty lasting for ages!

Crabtree & Evelyn hand therapy

I love Crabtree & Evelyn. The company and its products ooze sophistication and the timeless brand continues to be a favourite with women of all ages.

I was more than happy to test this ultra-moisturising hand therapy cream and I think my poor, neglected hands were too! The packaging is absolutely gorgeous and would sit pretty in any bathroom or dressing room – rose petal pink and classic black writing is a winner for me!

It sinks into the skin like a dream and there is no sticky residue left but what is best about this product is the smell. It is divine – Pear and Pink Magnolia – and lingers ever so nicely throughout the day. Priced at £15 for 100g this is an absolute bargain and would make a perfect present.

DermaDew Total body cream review

I love the history behind this new product: a team of young people experimented at home in the hope of finding the perfect moisturiser for dry skin. They are not chemists but had various skin issues and thought that the products available to deal with these annoyances were too clinical and didn’t really tick all of the boxes.

After a lot of hard work and trial and error DermaDew was born. This new wonder product had such rave reviews from its creator’s friends and family that they decided to take it to manufacture and introduce it to the beauty market.

So, do I want to add to the rave reviews? Yes I do!! DermaDew is intensely creamy and smells divine, Japanese Plum to be precise! I applied the smallest of blobs straight after a shower, and a little bit goes a long way. This cream was heaven for my dry legs – which are covered in scratches and cuts at the moment- and a major plus for me was that it didn’t leave a sticky or shiny residue that the majority of intense moisturisers leave behind.

Packaged in a pot so that you can access every drop of the product and with prices starting from just £4.99 really seals the deal for me! DermaDew will now be a staple in my day to day beauty regime.
