Trimollient Spray

I was lucky enough to trial Trimollient spray for 4 weeks. I used it predominantly for excema on my inner elbows and psoriasis on my outer elbows.

It comes in a nice clean natural looking can but there was no instructions for use printed on the can (unaware if this is because mine was a sample or not). To use you simply twist the top which uncovers the spray nozzle so this is great in preventing any accidental sprays. I used twice daily on each area. The spray shoots out at an angle which may be ok when covering a large area such as back, chest or thigh but it wasn’t much good for the areas I was using on as most of it misses. I tried to get a better aim to no avail and in the end resorted to spraying into my hands and rubbing on. The packaging is a big fail for this product. Maybe I had a faulty container?

However, the emollient itself is really good. It is light and soaks in almost immediately and requires little rubbing in. There is no sticky or heavy residue left. It has a minimal fragrance that is neither unpleasant nor pleasant.

It was extremely effective at calming moderate skin irritation, reducing both the redness and itching. I had one week of extreme stress where my skin flared up considerably and it didn’t do much to sooth that but nothing else does either. Once my stress levels and skin were moderate again the Trimollient was effective once again.

So in summery the emollient is brilliant and extremely effective, I would highly recommend it, I just feel that on this occasion it was let down by lack of instructions and usefulness of the can’s spray direction. If it sprayed at a 90 degree angle that you could aim to desired irritation I would have no hesitation at giving Trimollient 5/5!

SatinNaturel Organic Argan Oil

I am a big fan of Argan Oil using it daily as a massage oil and rubbing into my hands and nails as a conditioner. This Organic Argan Oil for Satin Naturel comes beautifully packaged thus making it extremely suitable for gifting. The oil has the light argan fragrance but nothing artificial added and is light and smooth in texture. It absorbs into the skin beautifully and quickly. I am very happy with this product and it is comparable with other quality Argan Oils that I have purchased in the past. I am more than happy to recommend and buy again, but with a large 100ml bottle it’s going to be a long time before I need anymore so at the current price it is good value.

GeMoor 50Pack PREMIUM Mosquito Insect Repellent Bracelets Deet

This bumper 50 pack is incredible value for money. I have ordered the wristbands before which just give us some added protection against mosquito and bites when walking in the woods.

Each bracelet or tag is individually packed keeping them fresh until you are ready to use. Lots of colours to chose from which is important so the kids all get to choose their favourite colour without arguments. The tags are all one colour blue.

The bands are soft silicone and can be put on any size wrist.
They are quite thin so you don’t really notice that you have them on but they still look ok.
The tag bracelets feel soft when worn.
The smell hits you as soon as you open the pack, it’s certainly not anywhere near as strong as others I’ve tried, very light citronella fragrance.
These are much nicer and healthier for you than a spray as they are made with 100% essential oils and contain no deet.
You can wear for more 7 days protection.

The stickers come in a variety of colours with 6 in  a pack. These went down a treat with the kids who were happy to stick them over their clothing for added protection, although these didn’t smell as strong as the bands.

My only negative is that all the labelling is in Chinese so not so good when marketed on a UK site, but not so important as it is self explanatory how to use.

Beauty Bon Make Up Brushes

I ordered two sets of Beauty Bon Make Up Brushes – the black set of 10 and the pink set of 24.
The black set are my favourite having far more compact bristles. They come without a pouch but are all individually covered.
The pink set makes a lovely gift coming in a pvc type roll pouch.
These are great starter sets for anyone looking for a variety of size brushes for make up application. They are extremely soft, lightweight and comfortable to hold.

Everlasting Comfort Memory Foam Cushion

I suffer with back pain anyway but more so when I sit at my computer. This cushion has given me extra comfort and support and encourages good posture. It is very well made with no loose stitching and a removable machine washable cover. So far I am extremely happy with this cushion and will continue to use it. Please bear in mind it is quite thick so if using at an office desk you may need to adjust the height of your chair to accomodate the extra height you will now have.

Seagull Knee Support Neoprene Knee Brace

The knee support is very well made. The fabric is thick and stretchy, the stitching neat and secure and the velco is VERY strong. It has long wrap around velcro bands at the top and bottom to ensure the support is fitted securely, and a further strap around the middle. This also gives some extra scope in size. As it is made of neoprene it is warming too so helpful to reduce pain from the cold. This can not only be used to convalescence but also for sports, injuries and arthritis. It is comfortable to wear, could wear clothes over the top and he would recommend it. The best thing is there is no synthetic chemical smell to this knee brace which I have noticed on a couple of others that we’ve had in the past.
