I was recently sent these beauties on behalf of the Jersey Tourist Board and Travel Service, who wanted to show off to me the wonderful Seascape brand who make gorgeous bath and body products from natural and sustainable ingredients that are all sourced from the island itself.
I'd not heard of Seascape before, perhaps as a result of the sad fact that I have yet to cram in a long considered trip to the islands of Britain, but I was really very impressed when the Unwind Bath Foam and Peppermint Lip Balm arrived. First of all, the packaging is stunning. They come adorned in beautiful patterns and the lip balm especially feels super expensive nestled in a little glass jar.
Next up of course I had to try out the products. The lip balm went straight in my handbag after trying it once, the balm is moisturising but not greasy or too slippery and the smell of peppermint is noticeable without being overwhelming. Some people might dislike the fact that you have to dip your finger in, but personally I'm not too bothered and besides - theres no way you'll be wanting to share this one around!
I've been adding a glug of the bath foam to a hot bath at the end of a long day at the school and the gorgeous lavender scent really does help me to calm down and relax before bedtime. It also foams up nicely, although don't expect any of the bells and whistles that you get with a Lush bath bomb.
The prices of the products aren't cheap, but neither are they ridiculously expensive and you do feel like they're worth that bit extra - there's no artificial colours or fragrances in these bad boys (plus skincare mavens will be happy to hear there's no petroleum in the lip balm!)
On a related note, if you have ever been to Jersey and you'd welcome the chance to visit again, today is your last chance to enter a competition to win a trip over. All you have to do is share a photo and a story of your time on the island. Don't worry if you don't win or if you're not eligible to enter though, you don't have to go all the way to Jersey to try out some Seascape products as they offer free UK delivery.
