Beauty: Cath Kidston Body Products

I noticed that the majority of products I use on my skin are from Cath Kidston and wanted to share my thoughts with you because i'm so impressed. The packaging is beautiful and the lotions and gels feel luxurious and smell amazing. I wouldn’t expect anything less from Cath Kidston but I’m guessing these aren't the first beauty products that you would reach for if you had the choice. If you haven’t already tried any then I recommend you do because there really is something special about them.

Cherry Blossom Hand Lotion
 The bottle is huge!! But you can never have enough hand cream, especially if you live in the UK where it’s always an essential because of the awful weather. The pump is a great feature and an easy and mess free way of getting the lotion out of the bottle. The lotion itself has quite a thin consistency but when rubbed in absorbs into your hands instantly leaving them smooth and soft. The fragrance isn’t particularly strong but smells fresh and clean which is good enough for me. 

Bluebell Body Cream
 This is another fairly large bottle, which has taken me quite a while to get through as not much is needed because it is so moiturising and thick. A massive strength of every product is that one of them are greasy. Just like the hand lotion, this body cream blends really well into the skin straight away leaving a subtle fragrance. This is probably my favourite scent out of the bunch.

Rose Shower Gel
 This shower gel contains Provitamin B5, which apparently means that it can reach deeper layers of the skin, retaining the natural moisture balance. It therefore claims to leave skin ‘feeling soft and delicately fragranced’. It certainly leaves you smelling great but I wouldn’t say it noticeably makes your skin any softer. However, when teamed up with the rose body cream they make a great duo. This shower gel seems to have quite a thick consistency, which gives it a luxurious feel on your skin.   

Wild Rose Body Cream
 It does the same job as the Bluebell body cream but the fragrance is a lot stronger so would be a great alternative for someone who prefers a less subtle scent. 

 They are all free from parabens and sulphates.

I've noticed that you can now find a lot of Cath Kidston products in TK Maxx for reduced prices so it may be worth taking a look. Have you used any Cath Kidston body products? What are your thoughts on them? 

Disclosure: The views expressed are based on my own experience.

  3. Aw the hand cream sounds lovely! I went into the cath kidston shop the other day for a browse and saw this... I wasnt sure whether i was just paying for the pretty packaging but from the sounds of your experience it is also a good product!
    you should for sure post about your pom pom making! Maybe we could do a swapsy on pom poms!

    1. They're really good products! Always good to find them in TK Maxx for less though :) I got the little rose body cream in a set with a shower gel from Waitrose when it was discounted so look out for offers in there too. Yeh definitely, I need to practice as my pom poms are a bit... thin looking at the moment haha x
