GIFTED: Sometimes you want something special at bath time and Seascape Island Apothecary products certainly fit the bill. Even more so because they are a British brand offering all the chic and stylish appeal of products from their neighbouring France.
In case you are not familiar with the brand, Seascape is based in Jersey and their products are a 100% natural essential oil-based collection of 7 different ranges of bath and body treats for the whole family.
Their collections include products for hand care, hair care, babies and children, sensitive skin and men’s products.
They use local products and extracts from herbs distilled on the island in each of their ranges. Two of these are specifically formulated to be safe for mums-to-be, whilst their children’s range – Les Petits – has been tested and certified by dermatologists as being safe for daily use on sensitive skin.
All Seascape products are made with 100% natural essential oil based formulae with no parabens, silicone, petroleum or SLS. The products are suitable for vegetarians and there are no artificial colours or fragrances.
Beautifully packaged, ethically and sustainably produced, Seascape’s products have already won several awards and they are against animal testing.
We were sent several products to try.
Les Petits Bubble Bath and Les Petits Body Lotion are beautifully fragrant, yet gentle children’s products which grown-ups will love too.
The bubble bath has lavender, chamomile and Jersey honey whilst the body lotion combines lavender, chamomile and Jersey beeswax. Both the kids loved the bubble bath and Caitlin felt very grown up with her own body lotion. “It’s like being in my own spa” she announced.
The Soothe Body Wash has Neroli, Lavender, Ylang Ylang and Jersey honey. Lavender calms whilst Ylang Ylang is said to balance the mind and the honey locks in moisture to the skin. The entire Soothe range (which you can win!) contains pregnancy safe essential oils.
The body wash lathers up nicely whilst the fragrance is subtle and not overpowering.
The Peppermint Oil Lipbalm contains 100% natural Peppermint Oil with Jersey Beeswax, Jersey Honey and Jojoba Seed Oil. I found it very soothing with a delicate Peppermint flavour – guaranteed to encourage frequent re-application!
This one appeared on ITV’s This Morning in Bryony Blake’s Spring Make-up Masterclass too.
Mine is already in my make-up bag.
