Wild Ferns and Pecksniff's - Manuka honey and mandarinFriday, May 23, 2014
I am loving these 2 products at the moment - Pecksniff's Hand Wash and Wild Ferns Manuka Honey Facial Scrub.
First I will talk about Wild Ferns Facial Scrub.
This is a gentle scrub containing pure active Manuka honey. Manuka is a flowering tea tree native to New Zealand. The honey that is collected from these flowers has long been renowned for its remarkable beneficial properties - antibacterial properties including an enzyme that produces hydrogen peroxide, which is a proven antiseptic. It is extremely rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals and has the outstanding ability to nourish, soothe and heal sensitive skin. Manuka honey also contains active antioxidants that neutralise free radicals which are responsible for skin cell damage. Manuka honey assists in the growth of new cell and tissue regeneration.
I was using L'Oreal Paris Dermo Expertise Clean Wash before but as I had run out I thought I would try something different. I was looking around Amazon and noticed Wild Fern and their amazing Manuka honey skin care products. I have heard so many good things about Manuka honey so I thought I'd order something.
I paid £11 for 100ml. It is not the real price, as I was looking around some New Zealand online shops and the face scrub itself costs around £5. If ordered from overseas and including all postage & tax, it would probably come to this full amount I paid. I just wanted to get it quickly - it arrived in 2 days.
I have used it 3 times now (I am using it twice a week) and I can say it is ideal for my skin. I have quite a mixed skin type - some parts of my face are oily and some extremely dry, which sometimes can make my skin flakey and cracked. This scrub is opening my pores and cleaning them thoroughly, removing oil deposits and helping to prevent pimples. It makes my skin's surface silky smooth and soft.
A very good thing about this product is that you don't need much, a little drop is enough to do the work.
The other cleansing product I bought was Pecksniff's hand wash. I didn't think that it would surprise me that much. All other soaps leave my hands dry after washing (meaning I have to cream them often) but this one here is amazing! It leaves my hands moisturised, soft and delicately fragranced. Gentle and effective! I bought it from TKMaxx for £5.
