seascape lip balmThis is the time of year when our bodies clad in warm clothes and fighting the harsh day to day elements start to tell us they need a little TLC.

Dry skin, chapped lips and a general covered up and forgotten feeling takes over – at least in my house it does. I’m afraid my ‘temple’ is looking a wee bit neglected and I need to do something about it.

Having my Big Day looming up is a great incentive to start and when it comes down to products I have been sent this fab Seascape Island Apothecary range to try out and feedback my thoughts

Seascape Island Apothecary

First off it’s a premium British bath & body brand YAY!!!

Secondly, the products are made in Jersey an island I long to visit one day, one that makes me think of Bergerac, and a tax free haven.

Thirdly all of the ranges are inspired by the natural charm and simplicity of Jersey including infusions of natural essential oils for fragrance which offer therapeutic benefits and help to balance personal care and wellbeing.

Another good reason to consider these products when you’re next out is “All Seascape products are paraben, silicone, petroleum and SLS free and are suitable for vegetarians.  They’re also free from artificial colours and synthetic fragrances”

There are six ranges, Uplift, Revive, Unwind, Soothe, Homme and Les Petits and the products cover Hands, Bath & Shower, Skincare, Maternity, Men, Les Petits and a gift range.

This product caught my eye first as my hands get in a dreadful state through the winter, my skin starts to break and crack up and nasty red patches appear. I have to clean with gloves on or else I’m in pain for weeks.

The first thing to hit me was the smell on applying it, a mixture of Jersey Lavender, lemongrass and geranium. Enriched with Jersey beeswax and natural Shea butter to nourish the skin and the cuticles.

Which is brilliant as it looks after your nails at the same time. After my Shellac experience my nails were very weak, I manged to break six of them within two days, using this cream has strengthened them and they are looking decidedly better. It’s a yes from me.

Seascape Peppermint Lip Balm

The girls LOVE this product as they are really getting into the ‘lipstick’ application after being used as models by a friend’s 8 year old recently.

Contains 100% natural Peppermint essential oil with Jersey Beeswax, Jersey Honey and Jojoba Seed Oil to moisturise and protect dry, chapped lips.

I keep this with my Refresh hand and nail cream by the computer and use it continually throughout the day, it’s nice, not too greasy and not to peppermint either in case you were wondering.

Seascape Soothe Body Butter

Oh island apothecary! You have excelled yourselves with this product. The smell ladies and gentlemen is so good I can’t keep myself from sniffing it, long deep breaths and I find it so relaxing. It’s the kind of smell that reminds me of fabulous body massages, of pure relaxation times and of gentle body care. I shall be wearing this on my wedding day for sure as it leaves that feint linger in the air

Contains 100% natural essential oils of Lavender to relax and calm, Ylang Ylang to balance the mind and Mandarin to rejuvenate the skin. Contains Jersey Beeswax, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Rosehip Seed Oil, Grape Seed Oil and Sweet Almond Oil rich in Omega 3, 6 and vitamin E to help reduce stretch marks and repair damaged skin. Our Soothe range is fragranced with ‘pregnancy-safe’ essential oils.

As you can see from the photo it is a thick body butter but is easily absorbed and leaves no greasy feeling to the skin. Thumbs up from me.

Seascape Les Petits Bubble Bath

Name one home in the world who doesn’t enjoy bubble bath. EVERYONE loves bubbles and les petits bubble bath are dermatologically tested and formulated for babies and children with sensitive skins. They are mild enough for every day use. Les Petits bubble bath includes essential oils of chamomile to soothe the skin and Jersey lavender to calm and relax.

No need to go on, my girls LOVED it and I loved it because it left them smelling sweet and beautiful and more importantly clean.

Seascape Les Petits Body Lotion

It’s been a long time since I used body lotion on the girls. As babies I used it every day but as they got older and their skin got tougher well I dropped the creams, it didn’t seem necessary but now they are right back in the routine.

The girls love to copy and as they see me applying creams they want to too. So it’s very handy  now they have their own one

  • because they are keen to apply it so make good use of the product
  • because they want to apply it themselves freeing up time for me

This can get messy so supervision in required but they do have a lot of fun as they smother themselves in the same spot over and over. Yes, you will have to jump in and spread the lotion around
