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


Sea Island Cotton Hand Wash, Bath & Body Works (5/5)

This product has a light delicate scent of fresh linen hanging out in a sea breeze, sounds corny but its true! The title is accurately descriptive. The wash is a clear liquid that gently foams.


Nutri-Protect Mains by Yonka (4/5)

This is a new hand cream and really rather nice. It is a non-oily formula which absorbs well and doesn’t leave a greasy feel. Ingredients include shea butter and grape seed oil with vitamins A, C and E. Essential oils including mandarin and magnolia are nourishing and give a delicate scent.


Vitamin E Hand & Nail Treatment, The Body Shop (3/5)

This is a nice hand cream, the vitamin E content provides healthy moisturizing for the skin. The Shea butter may be the ingredient that makes this cream a bit too greasy for my liking.


Graceful Hands Delight, Reverence de Bastien (5/5)

The packaging of this product is the first of it's kind. There are 4 mini hand creams in a very smart silver tin with Bastien's logo on. The great advantage is that the hand creams can be opened one at a time so the product remains fresh (rather than opening a large tube and it lingering for months).


Body Shop Peppermint Foot Balm (3/5)

The Body Shop can always be relied upon for environmentally friendly products and good value too.

Butter Nail Fertiliser (4/5)

Butter is from London but I have only come across the product in the States so far. A popular brand at spas in Los Angeles. I have been pleased with this base coat. It is a super name for an undercoat!

Bath & Body Works anti-bacterial moisturizing hand lotion (5/5)

The sea island cotton hand lotion has such a lovely scent, mix a summers day at the seaside with fresh linen.

ESSIE Nail Varnish Colour Adore-a-Ball (4/5)

This hasn’t thinned out yet – so ESSIE please don’t!
