The Somerset Toiletry Co.

Friday 22 August 2014

A little while back I was sent a bundle of products to review from The Somerset Toiletry Co. The team behind the brand have a range of expertise in the beauty field, and have spent time producing products for massive brands such as Anthropologie, Laura Ashley, Oliver Bonas and many more! The Somerset Toiletry Company was set up four years ago with the aim to produce beautifully designed products, made from the finest ingredients, at reasonable prices.

The brand is based around the corner from me, they have an outlet store in Clutton (between Bristol and Bath) where they sell a variety of beauty products including some private label brands - all at huge discounts. If you aren't local, their online store is set to go live on the 1st September!

Ministry of Sound Nightlife Perfume
Ministry of Sound - Nightlife perfume for her (c/o). Retail price: £20 

My mum practically tore this perfume from my hands after it arrived - she absolutely loves it! It's a lovely floral scent (with a hint of musk) which I'd definitely say is more of an evening scent than an everyday one. I really love the fun, plastic packaging... It's simple but stylish. Although I can understand why my mum is impressed, I don't think it's a very *me* scent. I'd say it's slightly mature and I personally prefer fruity, sweet smells. That being said, it would make a great gift - especially if you manage to snag one from the Clutton outlet store *cough* it's only £1.50 there *cough*.

Laura Ashley Peppermint Lip Balm
Laura Ashley - Peppermint Oil Replenishing Lip Balm (c/o)Retail price: £7 

Oooh yes, this lip balm is a winner in my eyes. It smells so good I want to gobble it all up like it's a box of After Eights. A little goes a long way with this oil, it leaves my dry lips feeling nourished and rather kissable (even if I do say so myself). I'll definitely buy another once this runs out! 

Naturally European Ginger Lime Hand Cream

Naturally European - Ginger & Lime Luxury Hand Cream (c/o)Retail price: £7.

Free from SLS and parabens, this luxury hand cream smells incredible and is a fantastic, thick consistency. It contains 20% shea butter which provides healing and protection to hands. I have very sensitive skin on my fingers and my hands are constantly taking a beating due to the nature of my job, but this hand cream is a lifesaver. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who suffers from dry hands. It would also make a really nice gift - I never think much of hand creams but this is my new fave!

Asquith and Somerset English Rose Soap
Asquith & Somerset - English Rose Fine Fragranced Soap (c/o)Retail price: £4.50

I know us soap users are a dying breed, but I love a good bar of the good stuff. Sometimes using shower gel can be so wasteful as I end up using half a bottle in one go. The packaging of this product does seem a little dated (I can imagine my 70 year old neighbour loving it) but it has a relatively subtle floral scent and is a great size. As my skin is so sensitive, I tend to shy away from fragranced soaps therefore I passed this one across to my mum to try. It lathers well and because it's so big, lasts a long time. Again, it's the type of product which you could bundle with a few other items to make a nice gift for someone.

To celebrate their new store launch, The Somerset Toiletry company will also be running some exciting promotions and a competition. You'll be able to win a luxury hamper worth over £100, the first five orders (over £30) placed on the site will get a special gift, there will be free P&P for the first week + more! For more info, follow them via Twitter and Facebook.
