Tried & Tested

I have always been interested in health and beauty, hence why I have written BODY BACK.

For years I have kept notes and comments on products I have liked, found worked (and still use) or have been a total waste of time and money! I am continually searching for medical and alternative health cures, nutritious secrets, clothes that compliment the figure, and of course the anti-aging miracle.

Welcome to TRIED & TESTED


KNOW! Body Wash (5/5)

This is a new line called KNOW hair & Body products, manufactured in California. The NO in the title is a great way of advertising the fact that there are NO nasties in these ingredients. They are safe products. The NO list is most impressive, no: DEAs, Formaldehyde, Glycols, Parabens, PEGs, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, Silicones, Sulfates, Synthetic colors, Synthetic fragrance TEAs. Yet it doesn’t smell like dishwater despite no fragrance additives. The light lemon scented body wash is made up of lovely natural ingredients including rose, evening primrose, citrus, grapefruit and orange.


Gentle Shower and Bath Scrub Lavender & Tangerine, Pure Plant Spa (1/5)

Their statement is ‘ingredients matter’ and the product is free from petrochemicals, artificial fragrances, preservatives or parabens. Which sounds super natural. However the word ‘gentle’ in the title is somewhat an understatement.


Coco parfum, Chanel 7.5ml refillable spray (5/5)

Mme Gabrielle Chanel's nickname, Coco was first launched in 1984, with supermodel Ines de la Fressange as the face of Coco Chanel. As pure as it comes, this is a concentrated hand bag size cask of perfume. Coco is an acquired scent, but I love it.


Aromatic Shower & Bath oil, Cinq Mondes (5/5)

One of my favourite shower products. Here is a perfect marriage between an oil and a shower gel. It is oily on contact, but amazingly still creates a luxurious creamy lather. There is a range of different scents and one is often drawn simply to which colour you like the best.


Relaxing Body Wash, La Source, Crabtree & Evelyn (5/5)

A one stop body cleanser and moisturizer for the shower (or bath). I absolutely love this scent, definitely for the female only it does smell floral and lifts the senses. I had this in my hospital bag for all four pregnancies and I think that has given me a huge emotional attachment to this scent.


Relaxing Yuan Zhi, Bath & Shower, Molton Brown (4/5)

This is a favourite shower gel in our household. It is deep purple in colour and the scent is fabulous, making it unisex (not frilly and rosy, women only)!


Soap & Glory Scrub Actually (3/5)

This scrub is granulated enough for one to feel a difference,the granules are in a jelly-like 'gloop'.

Space NK Seaweed Crystals (4/5)

As soon as the lid comes off you are taken to the seashore, that wonderful fresh marine scent is captured perfectly.

Lierac Body Peel (2/5)

Milky serum to help rid body of dead skin. I didn’t find it strong enough for cellulite
