A pack of unfussy skin stuff that gives a chap a perfect shave, a bone-relaxing bath, a balm and a foot soak
Tested on some men who are very reluctant to use anything that could remotely be called 'beauty products' but found they liked all of it (although they haven't told their mates).
This is for the chap, younger or older, who has irritable, sensitive skin and might need to relax sometimes.
Made by hand at Great Elm with the best of ingredients possible.
Rosemary & Ginger Body Soak (200ml) Fabulous treat for hard-pushed muscles and achy bones! This is a thoroughly warming, aromatic mixture that will ease the stiffness, soothe the aches and pains, and revitalise the senses at the end of a hard-working day. The most important ingredient is Epsom Salts - magnesium sulphate - which restores to the body the vital trace elements that strengthen the system. They are also wonderfully good at relaxing the body, and at detoxing. We have mixed them with ginger and exotic galbanum, both brilliant at soothing stressed bones, and relax and warm over-wrought muscles INGREDIENTS: Magnesium sulphate (Epsom Salts) bicarbonate of soda (baking soda). Essential oils of Zingiber officinalis (ginger)*, Ferula galbaniflua (galbanum)*, Gaultheria procumbens (wintergreen)*, Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary)*, Lavendula augustifolia (lavender)*. NOTHING ELSE.
Starflower & Juniper Shaving Oil (10ml) This is that's needed for a marvellously close shave and general face care. It's a shaving medium, skin conditioner and has a very appealing aroma.
