What I Bought This Week

AloeDent Minty Fresh Aloe Vera Mouthwash, £3.99/250ml
I've been enjoying using JĀSÖN's mouthwash, but as it was coming to an end, I thought I'd test out another brand. This is very close to your mainstream mouthwashes, but without the alcohol, fluoride and saccharin. I'm undecided on which one I prefer!
Viridian White Willow 400mg Capsules, £6.85/30 capsules
White Willow is the original, natural alternative to today's Aspirin. I wanted to find a replacement for my casual pain relief - something to soothe and reduce headaches and general aches and pains. I have already used a couple of capsules - each time for a headache - and have been pleasantly surprised at the result. The only downfall for me, personally, is the large size of the capsules, but I've managed okay, so far!
JĀSÖN Calming Lavender Hand Soap, £4.99/480ml
This hand wash has a semi-opaque, gel formula and comes in this huge pump bottle! This is going to last for ages. I really love lavender as a scent (probably passed down through my Mum's love of it!) and find it rather calming. Now, it does smell of lavender, but it is different from the usual scent - perhaps more subtle - but still lovely. It lathers quite well and leaves hands feeling clean and moisturised.
Pukka Organic Rosewater, £11.95/100ml
Housed in a frosted glass spray bottle, this 100% organic, Ayurvedic-inspired rosewater can be used as a toner to reduce blemishes and oily skin.  It can also be used to treat prickly heat and as a natural pick-me-up for the mind and soul. This rosewater is made from fresh, organically grown roses which are steam distilled for complete purity. I'm not sure why I opted for a rose-scented toner, because I'm not really a huge fan of rose as a scent. This smells of roses, but with a slightly earthy undertone. I don't hate it, it's okay... Upon application to clean skin, it feels hydrating and refreshing. I'll be introducing this as a daily part of my skincare routine.
Lavera Pampering Rose Hand Cream, £4.45/50ml
Another unusually rose-scented product - no idea why I was suddenly compelled to try out this scent! This vegan-friendly hand cream is the perfect travel size and will probably live in my handbag for use when out and about. It's most definitely the time of year to be stocking up on some decent hand creams! Thanks to the organic wild rose fruit extract, this has a sweet, floral rose scent and is quickly absorbed into your skin.
