Living Nature Nourishing Manuka Honey Bodywash – I know that anything with Manuka honey in will be very safe for my skin. Manuka honey is really good at helping to heal skin, this is one of the reasons I wanted to try the body wash. I am also a big fan of Living Nature and have used the Living Nature Manuka hand cream before, you can check out my post on it here. This is quite an expensive body wash, I have only been using it for a few weeks, but so far it is perfect for my dry sensitive skin. It comes out of the bottle very quickly, which can sometimes be a bit of an issue, so you have to be careful of that. I of course make sure I make use of it and have found that I get no irritation at all on my skin, no matter how much I use.
I haven’t found it to be dehydrating once out of the shower, sometimes this can be a issue for me with other body washes I have used. I will continue using this and make an edit once I have used it for over a month, this way I can let you know if there is any changes in the condition of my skin or not. However, as it stands, I use it each day and pop it into my swim bag. It is so much better than the cheap 99p one I was using before, which was causing my skin to be very sore on my legs, it just shows that spending a little extra on an organic and sulfate free product can be worth it.
All products on the Mypure website are free from lots of chemicals… the one that stands out for me is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, I notice a huge difference when I use products which do not contain this, my eczema always gets worse when a product does contain it. :
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
Used as a foaming ingredient and emulsifier. The popularity of SLS in toiletries has decreased in recent years because it is thought to be too harsh to use on the skin. It strips the skins natural oils and can denature (destroy) eye & skin protein.
A’kin Body Moist is a dream for dry skin. It has a thick texture almost like suncream, a little goes a long way. I have been using this everyday, morning and evening. The cream is unscented, as much as I like a beautiful smelling body cream there are something that have to be put to one side when picking a body cream which is going to be good for dry and sensitive skin. I have had no irritation to my sensitive skin from A’kin Body Moist, which of course is very good. I think that £14.99 is a good price for 200ml of a fully hydrating product.
