It’s not often as a mummy blogger that you get to try out products for you. Usually you get inundated with PR requests to try out baby monitors, bottle warmers, toys and any number of item geared around our kids. So when the lovely people at Taylor & Taylor toiletries contacted me asking if I wanted to try some of their gorgeous luxury hand washes and toiletries I jumped at the chance. After all my hands were feeling neglected and a quick look at their website had me intrigued.
My package of goodies arrived and through the bubble wrapping I could see lovely sleek black packaging with a timeless style similar to the Jo Malone packaging I love so much (and that quite frankly looks bloody good on my bathroom shelf and creates good guest envy). I had been sent the Pomegranate & Cassis hand wash and shower gel to try out.
I popped the lid off the shower gel and a beautiful aroma greeted me, not overly perfumed or sickly but one that invigorated my senses and made me think of luxuriating in a bubble bath with a good glass of wine.
I got to use the hand wash first and it was every bit as good as I thought it would be. Not too thick or gloopy, lathered well and the scent was lovely as I used it. Easy to rinse and leaving no residue my hands felt fresh, clean and soft. I have quite sensitive skin and have to be careful of what products I use but the Taylor & Taylor luxury hand wash didn’t cause me any reactions or skin irritation.
The shower gel comes in the same sleek black and clear packaging with a handy hanging handle for the shower. On opening it I knew I wanted the bottle to be bigger, the smell was delectable. So many shower gels are just bubbles and no fragrance and as soon as you’ve washed them off you feel clean but the smell doesn’t stay on your skin. Not with the Taylor & Taylor shower gel, even once I was out the shower and all dry I could smell the lovely pomegranate aroma and my skin was really smooth and silky soft as well as feel very fresh and clean.
Currently the range is available in Superdrug where you can buy the shower gel and hand wash in the sea kelp and pomegranate varieties. I will certainly be keeping this bit of luxury out of Roo’s way as she seems to have developed a love for squirting bubble bath and shower gels around the bath tub at bath time and this is far too yummy for that!
