For the category of Best Skin Care product, we have also given not one but TWO highly commendable awards to…
Liquorice Balm from Skin Shop. Taking second place, Skin Shop’s 100% natural Liquorice Lip Balm will help to keep cold sores at bay this winter. “This Liquorice Lip Balm helps to hydrate, nourish as well as keep the whole family’s cold sores in the closet. Odourless, the Liquorice Balm is FREE from MI, SLS, parabens and perfumes and comes in a handy vintage-style metal tin, which makes it plastic-free too.”
What our tester said: “If you like liquorice then you’ll LOVE this. While this balm doesn’t necessarily have a strong taste, it does have a strong smell which is really nice. It quickly absorbs into the lips and helps them feel hydrated. I loved the little metal tin.”
And in third place, we have Tincture’s IONA hand wash and hand lotion. With a price tag of £15, the hand wash is gentle, natural and a sustainable product to cleanse your hands with. While the hand lotion for £20, is very light and gentle enough for all skin types.
What our tester said: “The lotion is gently perfumed and it absorbed fairly quickly into my skin. My hands felt lovely and smooth with no greasiness whatsoever. I also loved the clip under the plunger to prevent any accidents from happening! The soap/wash doesn’t lather up too much and feels gentle on the skin. It has a delicate but fresh perfume. Again the clip under the plunger is very useful particularly if travelling.”
