Woods of Windsor Weekends*


Woods of Windsor have just launched their new 'Hands Collection'... which, hands down [lol, I'm so punny] is one of the nicest smelling product releases to drop through my front door. Ever. And the packaging is pretty much too cute to cope with. Quintessentially British, this brand has been making beautifully fragranced luxuries since 1770 [that's even older than me, and I'm a pure fossil, like]... perfectly capturing the scents that instantly transport you to the country gardens that inspired them.

These products from The Gardeners Range are [from L-R] - the Woods of Windsor Blackberry & Thyme Nourishing Hand Cream* rrp £5.99, their Blackberry & Thyme Moisturising Hand Wash* £6.99 and their Blackberry & Thyme Exfoliating Hand Scrub* rrp £4.99. Each of these babein' products is fragranced with the most beautiful blend of Blackberry & Thyme; which combines green tea, ripe blackberry, rosemary, thyme, mimosa and white jasmine - enhanced with musk and amber. The new collection also features an Intensive Hand Balm [not pictured.]

The hand wash is in a HUGE, luxurious pump bottle; which instantly makes any bathroom or kitchen sink look about a million dollars. It's beautifully patterned label and striking purple tones ensure it looks classy af. It's paraben free, made from 88% natural ingredients and smells too fit to comprehend. It boasts antibacterial & healing thyme oil ... as well as blackberry extract; which is rich in anti-oxidants. Its inclusion of sssential fatty acids protect and moisturise; whilst its lux lather leaves your hands feeling [and smelling] fiiiiiine.

The pretty hand cream / scrub come in smaller, more handbag-friendly tubes. They're both paraben free too; and boast the same, nourishing yet anti-bacterial properties as the hand wash. The hand scrub contains pumice to cleanse and remove ingrained dirt; with antibacterial and healing qualities. And the hand cream [which is currently on offer on the Woods of Windsor website!] contains shea butter to help protect and moisturise tired skin; leaving your hands feeling soft, smooth and freshly fragranced whilst conditioning ya nails.

I am obsessed with these new releases. Everything about them - their stunning, intricate packaging design, their high quality, the nourishing & luxurious formula of each product and their fragrance; oh my days... it's just not like anything else handcare wise that I've ever tried before. It's all so, so beautiful - their sensual scent brings back nostalgic memories of Christmas for me; a fresh, kinda pine scented aroma that takes me back to days as a kid enjoying, choosing and decorating our tree each year.

They are the perfect Christmas gift idea for her - thoughtful, pretty, high quality, very reasonably priced and something I'd actually really enjoy unwrapping; if Santa was kind enough to drop some of their products under my tree this year [hint hint lad.] I'm 100% going to order some more of these hand products for the ladies in my family - their colour [purple], beautiful scent and Gardeners / gardening theme are perfect for them; all their favourite things combined into three luxury products.
