Beauty Bits: The Somerset Toiletry Co.

Somerset Toiletry CoIt’s always lovely discovering a local independent company, designer or shop, and it’s what makes living in Bristol so brilliant. In the West Country we have the quaint and quirky cafes and restaurants of Bath, the longest independent high street in the country in Bristol and in Somerset there is The Somerset Toiletry Co.

Established at the turn of the millennium, The Somerset Toiletry Co. have been turning out perfumes, potions and creams for the likes of Laura Ashley, Anthropologie and Zandra Rhodes for the last 15 years. As well as this, the company also produce their own products, with the aim of using the finest ingredients at a non-eye bulging cost to the consumer.

To celebrate the launch of their new website, the team kindly sent me some goodies to try and I’ve picked out a couple of my favourites to share with you.

Laura Ashley pepermint lip balmLaura Ashley Garden Peppermint Oil Lip Balm

Mint is a scent that I’m getting into more as I get older. I used to hate mint flavoured anything growing up, but I’ve recently been enjoying several minty beauty products, including this lip balm. I’m a sucker for pretty looking beauty products (who isn’t?) so this little pot will blend in nicely on my dressing table chest of drawers. A little goes a long way but the oils in this balm feel nourishing and refreshing.

Naturally European Verbena Hand Cream

I always seem to race through hand cream and keep one on my desk at work, in my handbag and on my beside table at home. This one is made in England and free from parabens which makes it a winner for me. The shea butter makes it feel rich and like it’s actually doing something (unlike the Soap & Glory Hand Food that’s currently sitting on my desk) and it soaks in like a dream – there’s nothing worse than a product that just sits on your skin, is there? The size of the tube is huge (£6.95 for 75ml) but this does mean that this cream isn’t travel-friendly so it’s going to brighten up my desk at work.

    Ooh, I saw that Lily had featured these as well! They’re based only about 10 minutes drive from me but I’d never even heard of them; I’m definitely going to pop into their outlet store nearer to Christmas though and pick up some bits as presents :-) xx
