Gold Award

Bloom Remedies

Kokomelt, 24 Sugar Scrub Hand Cubes

“I am a gentleman blessed with the hands of a navvy and this product did achieve longer-term benefits for my oft-mistreated hands”

“Straight away hands felt softer … very enjoyable to use. At first I was sceptical – thought it was gimmicky – but as soon as I used it I realised what an effective product it was.”

“Scent of the sugar is lovely … feels as if you are crushing oxo cubes.” 

 

Silver Award

Chuckling Goat, Refresh Kefir Lotion

“Left my skin feeling nice and moisturised, so performed well. I’m going to really miss this when it runs out. Over the course of the trial it’s become my favourite product – easy to use, smells nice and fresh, uses great natural ingredients and is effective. It’s great for everyday use or to chuck in a gym bag. It looks really good and I really like it.”

Conscious Skincare, Conscious Man Fuzz Off Shave Gel

“I have a heavy duty beard and need a heavy duty product … This was a delight to use with easy spread, and a delicate floral citrus aroma.”

“Works very well on its own without the need for an oil under it … a good close shave and skin didn’t feel sore or dry afterwards.”

 

Bronze Award

Living Naturally, Man Balm

“Over the month I feel that my skin does feel very well looked after, nicely moisturised and protected … it’s looking healthy and glowing, and there is no irritation, blemishes or sensitivity. I feel it would really come into its own during a cold winter when your face is exposed to the elements.”
