Beauty Must Have - Bach Rescue Cream

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.

Find out more about the Nelson's brands featured in this blog at their website. Bach Rescue Cream is readily available from Boots, Holland and Barrett, and independent pharmacies.

The Christmas Holiday By Phillipa Ashley Book Review

I apologise now for any or all mentions of the word Christmas in this blog post, but with a lot going on in life and work I just have to go with whatever calls to me in my reading pile, which this time was The Christmas Holiday by Phillipa Ashley.  Released last year, this book will always have a special place in my bookish heart because I helped with some crafting inspiration for it, and to see my name in the credits of this paperback is something I will always treasure. I was so excited to see how and where my ideas were used, but managed to control my impatience and not skip any pages. Although I have been a member of Phillipa's Facebook group for a while, this is my first read of hers  (have another in my reading pile) so I opened this book with a mix of anticipation and a slight fear of the unknown - I really wanted to love the book I helped with! And love it I did. It made a refreshing change to read a novel set in the Lake District, and also one which wasn't just a stere

Hobbycraft Lino Printing Online Workshop Review

 One of the things that has been great to see now we have come through the worst of the Covid pandemic, has been companies continuing with the online activities they launched during the lockdowns. Hobbycraft now offer a wide range of workshops online and in-store through the year, and I recently took part in an online lino printing workshop, so I thought I'd blog a bit more about what's on offer and the workshop I took part in. What workshops are on offer?  These vary through the year, and can involve seasonal, adults, and kid's workshops in-store and online. If you click on the workshops you are interested in finding out more about, you can find out about what's included in the price, what you'll learn, and the available workshop dates, there's also the opportunity to request private events for groups. While I'm writing this, there are workshops on Cricut, watercolour painting, knitting, paint pouring, seasonal wreath making, using clay, sewing, and a new

Hocus Pocus 2 Film Review

Halloween is one of my favourite times of year for films, and I've loved all the witch and wizard magical, spooky-themed films since I was young. I was really looking forward to seeing Hocus Pocus 2, but I had no idea what to expect from the sequel. Would they pick up where they left off in 1993, move on a bit but with a strong connection to the original, or do something completely different? This Disney + release turned out to be the latter, and I found myself watching a modern-day Salem on screen. The old town is now a 'historic district' which has the air of a novel tourist attraction, complete with a mystical magic shop which presents the story of Salem and the Sanderson Sisters as some kind of commercial entertainment enterprise - hear the story, buy some magical merch.  The detail in Gilbert's shop and his stage show presentation are very apt for the modern day, and the feeling that the Sanderson sister's legend has become less powerful and more humorous myth
