Good general moisturiser; cheap per ml, pleasant scent, silicone-free, and makes my skin soft. It's not a miracle, but for the price it's ideal and it's one I keep rebuying. Personally I like the big tub, it's not so narrow that it's difficult to reach the bottom (even with large hands), it stacks easily unlike tubes, and the size (475ml) is great, but the lid is smooth and round so it is difficult to screw shut when you've just moisturised your hands! If you wash out the empty tubs they make good storage pots for hair bands and things too.

This was my Holy Grail conditioner. My hair loved it, I didn't even need to use leave-in conditioner afterwards. It made my hair soft, smooth, and gave enough slip to make detangling easy... before they reformulated it to include amodimethicone and to hugely increase the amount of drying isopropyl alcohol. Now, it's safe to say I'll never buy another bottle. I wish they hadn't messed with this, it was literally perfect for my hair. If you can find any bottles of the old formula, grab them; they're amazing! But the new stuff? Urgh. Walk away.

I really loved this product when I lived somewhere with soft water; I needed to use more than normal to get it to lather, which when it's so expensive is a pain, but it didn't dry out my skin like normal body washes, but still cleanses well. The smell is subtle, and unoffensive. I bought it repeatedly many times. Sadly in hard water, this really struggles. Even using a large amount, it just doesn't lather properly or cleanse as well, and I won't be buying another bottle since moving here. If you've got soft water and deep pockets I'd recommend it, but otherwise no.
