Weleda Lavender Creamy Body Wash, £ 5.95, available Dolphin House Shop 01273 721 720
This is my favorite new product from Weleda. I recently started using their creamy body washes when this new Lavender one came int the shop! I was thrilled! Lavender is just so relaxing and de-stressing. The creamy body washes from Weleda works well as a hair shampoo as well (their baby Calendula body wash is marketed as a shampoo as well, so I thought I'd try them as shampoo). I like this as a shampoo as opposed to using an actual hair shampoo because of its creamy texture, it gives a rich lather but also washes out clean and free of residue. Their light foaming ingredient is coco-glucide, which is the same ingredient used in Dr. Hauschka shampoo. I recently started going to the gym and this is what I take with me. The fact I can use this as a shampoo is great since it's one less product I'd have to carry around with me. I could never use what they put in the shower dispensers at the gym showers, knowing what I know about SLS and synthetic based chemicals.
Also available, Weleda Creamy Body Wash in Wild Rose, Citrus, and Sea Buckthorn.

Dr. Hauschka Lavender Bath, £16/100 ml, £3/trial, available Dolphin House Shop 01273 721 720.
Most of us know how to treat a burn using cold water or an ice pack. But since joining Dolphin House Shop, I learned that lavender is the most effective way to immediately treat burns and prevent scarring from burns. I recommend keeping a bottle of Dr. Hauschka Lavender Bath to add to cold water to treat scalds and burns immediately. With a bowl of cold water, add a few drops of Lavender Bath and use a flannel cloth as a compress to apply to affect area of skin. It gives skin immediate relief.
Just another thing that a bottle of Lavender |Bath can do for you, other than help you relieve stress, anxiety, and irritated skin... is there anything more you can ask for in just one product?

Dr. Hauschka Lip Care Stick, £9, available Dolphin House Shop 01273 721 720.
Today I bought a Dr. Hauschka Lip Care Stick. Possibly the best lip balm ever! It gives chapped lips immediate relief. It contains jojoba wax, carrot extract, rose wax, rosehip oil, anthyllis extract, sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, and shea butter. Lips feel soft and nurtured while protected from the elements.
Skin specialists recommend using a natural based lip balm because a petrol um oil based one will cause a dependency because the oil blocks the pores of the lips, and the skin will stop producing its own natural oils. The catalog says that it does not encourage product dependency, but I disagree, the product is so amazing that one would start to feel an emotional dependency for it!
