Mixed reaction to this - as their shampoo bar is excellent and my hair is in good condition anyway, didn't really need this product. Would rate this as a good conditioner if you needed a bit a boost due to over-styling with heated products although can't imagine it would be much use if you'd over-processed your hair with chemicals. There's only so much mother nature can do to combat poor treatment. I guess it would be helpful to hair in bad condition if you were trying to wean self off the chemically laden products.
Yet another excellent product. Nice smell, easily absorbed, a little goes a long way. Can't fault it. Have tried other products which may have made hands soft but it was only a temporary measure and unlike other chemical handcreams, this doesn't make your skin somehow addicted to its next "fix" of cream. Improves your skin long-term without making it cream dependent - not a short-term fix like those commercial brands.

Not the greatest odour of all the lovely products this company make but when you think of what is in other brands and their harmful side-effects, I know what I'd prefer to slather on. Besides, once you stop using the chemical-laden products, your nose somehow re-programmes and becomes intolerant to the nasty man-made additions you once thought were acceptable.

Again, my experience completely different - perhaps it depends on whether you use all-natural beauty products (as I do) or whether you use them alongside more chemically-based products. The only thing I found hard to overcome is the association of foam with clean hair. If you like a head of bubbles, then one of their hair and body bars is a better bet. Nice product, non-irritating and not mega expensive like some of the other natural products on the market. Would have scored higher but for the fact that their solid hair bars are even better.
Cannot believe how completely different my experience is in relation to this product. I suppose it just shows that everyone's skin is so different and even these types of reviews should be treated with caution. After years of trying supposedly eczema friendly products that initially worked but then eventually start to irritate, here is a product which actually cleans enough not to flare up the eczema but enough to ensure you don't end up with spots. And I've tried it them all over the years - from Eve Lom to Lancome. Fabulous stuff - although I have to say I preferred using it from the trial bottle rather than the pump action bottle (a little too foaming). In fact, the only reason it doesn't get a "five" is that I've found an even better product - their castille soap. Now that is truly wonderful. But beware, not all castille soaps are the same - Dr Bronner's made my eczema red raw.

After years of trying all kinds of products to alleviate the eczema patches on either side of my nose and around my hairline, this is the first thing to work. Whilst the patches haven't gone altogether, they're now the lightest trace of pink and can be covered with a mere trace of mineral powder make-up. Not bad when I've only used it for 5 days! I have had partial success in the past with products only for the problem to re-emerge but here is hoping. There is just the slightest whiff of honey but I've tried other products which have smelled far worse and for £5, I can't knock it. Will up-date if redness returns. Eczema still under control - a definite result! All traces of eczema now gone! Been eczema free for a couple of months - never gone this long without major flare up. Use it after washing face twice daily. Marvellous product.
Yet again, I feel like a freak. This supposedly gentle product stipped my skin. Was it the alcohol in it? Who knows? If you get dermatitis patches on the forehead when you can't find your usual shampoo and are forced to hunt for an alternative - this is not the product for you. Beware - not as harmless as the packaging blurb would have you believe. I will definately stick to Lavera Almond shampoo - when I can locate it, that is.

A fantastic product which actually works for sensitive skin without triggering the usual reaction of either an eczema flare up (with spot quelling products) or allowing the jaw line "spot crop" to emerge. I cannot rate this product highly enough after years, and I really do mean years, of trying all kinds of products (in all price brackets) in the seemingly futile search for something which coped with both spots and eczema. Their cleanser isn't half bad either!!! I will update review if old problems emerge but have had 3 weeks of success - have always had a reaction to products prior to this.

All I can say is that I must have overly sensitive skin as this was like using some form of napalm. I haven't suffered from eczema for a while but this certainly triggered it. Back to the drawing board to find a cleanser that doesn't trigger eczema but also copes with those hormonal breakouts.
