Monkey Farts Shampoo Bar
This light-hearted shampoo bar, inspired by the diet of monkeys, has a subtle aroma of banana, mango, kiwi, papaya, mixed berry and coconut, with a slight weave of vanilla. This fruity number is amazing for your hair, leaving it soft and clean. What I liked about the shampoo bar is it lathers up really well and it is easy to work it through your hair. I only needed to use a small amount, so no wonder the packaging says the bar will last for 100 washes. Each shampoo bar is handmade in the UK using argan oil and mango butter. Monkey Farts Shampoo Bar is a tropical treat which will bring a smile to all ages.

Calendula and Marshmallow Balm
The Calendula and Marshmallow Balm promises to soothe dry, cracked or irritated skin. My skin is quite sensitive, so I am always sceptical about moisturising products, but this worked a treat! The balm is an absolutely game changer. If you are growing tired of dry skin, I would highly recommend this product. It is perfect for dry hands and to improve skin elasticity, and it can also be used to prevent stretch marks. It is unfragranced and is made in the UK from pure plant oils, organic beeswax and homegrown herbs. There is no water in the balm, meaning you only need to use a small amount and the balm will last a long time.

Lemongrass & Hemp Soap
This is my new favourite soap! Made with lemongrass essential oil, this soap has a sweet and zesty fragrance which is incredibly refreshing. The rich soap bar lathers up really well and is naturally moisturising. With all the recent hand washing, I am grateful for this gentle soap bar which leaves hands feeling very soft. I particularly love that hemp bran is a natural exfoliator, which helps to freshen up the skin as you wash. Every soap bar is handmade in the UK with coconut oil, shea butter, olive oil, lemongrass essential oil and hemp bran.
