Whilst in Boots last week (as I usually am!) I noticed that the Original Formula range which I’ve been dying to try was half price! So I loaded up my basket. As you can see Taz greatly approved!
Since her op she’s been feeling much better. She used to be fairly disinterested in her surroundings, now everything and everyone needs to be investigated thoroughly. Anyhoo back to the haul.
How lovely is the packaging! Here we have the bath oil (£3.89 reduced from £7.79), hand cream (£1.94 reduced from £3.89), bath foam (£3.14 reduced from £6.29) and body wash (£1.94 reduced from £3.89). The bath foam and oils both come in beautiful glass bottles. When they are done I will definitely be using them to put other bubble baths in!
So far all I’ve tried is the hand cream. The packaging looks like a metal tube but it’s actually plastic and squeezy. The cream is fairly thick and a little goes a long way and it does a nice job of moisturising my hands without leaving a greasy residue. The most noticeable feature is its scent. It states lavender on the packaging but whilst there certainly is a noticeable lavender tone it isn’t overpowering. It smells, well, it smells like a National Trust house. And I mean this as a good thing (being a proud member of the National Trust! For non UK people they are an organisation that look after old stately homes, gardens, castles and the like). It smells of beautiful well manicured gardens and pot pourri. It’s a pleasant floral scent but it is quite strong so is strong scents aren’t your thing it won’t be for you. I’m very tempted to pop back and buy the whole shelf full whilst it’s on special offer!
Overall so far I’m impressed and I do hope that the low prices aren’t indicative that they are giving up on the line. If anyone has any suggestions for other things from the range I should be trying then please do let me know!
