I have heard so many bloggers saying that one of the things they love is the chance to try out products that they otherwise wouldn't have heard of - it's true this is a great part of blogging, although in this case I have been trying out a product that I knew of, but would never have thought of buying before.
I was very kindly sent a selection of products from the Nelson's Pure and Clear and Bach Rescue range to sample, and would happily recommend them all. I might nitpick at the shape of the Rescue Lip Balm pot, or the number of wipes (which seemed to go quite quickly) in the Pure and Clear range, but overall my complexion is happier, and although I can't erase what hormones do to my face at times, the effects have been reduced.
But I'm blogging because I wanted to give some space to the Bach Rescue cream, which for me stood out among the products I was sent. Just like other products in the range it uses a combination of 5 flower essences along with other ingredients and moisturisers. The packaging suggests it's aimed at dry, rough, sensitive skin, but this product is about soothing as well as re hydrating, and that is something other skin types will welcome.
It claims to be non greasy, and is, and quickly absorbs into the skin. This is actually the second tube I've had, having reviewed it ages ago for something else, and my first tube lasted absolutely ages, so a little does go a really long way.
With all the cold and dreary weather we've been having recently it's been my go to when my skin felt a bit dry and weather beaten, and it's also helped on a few occasions when I've done something silly like catch my hair straighteners on my face, or had some skin irritation. I know that some products I've got haven't really made much difference, or are a bit too harsh for what I wanted them for, but this one does the job.
