Cowshed Knackered Cow

Cowshed Knackered Cow

I love Christmas; the excitement, the decorations and the heady atmosphere of festivity! On the other hand it can be a long period of stress… Queues, endless shopping, office parties, wardrobe dilemmas, family reunions and don’t even mention the pressure of cooking the perfect Christmas dinner! My inner chef shudders at the thought. That’s why I like to indulge in a pampering treat before the mania takes hold in the run up to Christmas. I tried put a little pampering with the Cowshed Knackered Cow luxury bath set.

The bath and body oil is gorgeous; it’s left my skin feeling soft and hydrated which is quite an accomplishment in this climate (it also doubles up as a massage oil if you have a willing slave to rub your aching muscles!). For me nothing beats the winter chill like a long hot bath, it doesn’t matter how high I turn up the central heating, nothing warms my icy cold feet like slipping into a tub of hot fragrant water at the end of the day… sheer unadulterated bliss! I really like the fragrance of these products; a herbaceous blend of lavender and eucalyptus essential oils that seems to be restoring a little sanity  to my busy schedule.

I’m a huge fan of candles, I’ll admit to grabbing a bumper pack of tea lights from Ikea on my visits but when it comes scented candles nothing rivals a luxury purchase (the scent really does last!) Cowshed candles use 100% natural wax made from GM free, organic and certified vegan ingredients with an Egyptian Cotton wick for even burning…. sounds good right? I like to burn mine while I’m soaking in the tub or on my bedside table to help me relax and unwind.

The Verdict

Overall this is a lovely bath set and the combination of candle and bath oil is perfect for me. If you’re feeling the strain of the festive season I’d definitely recommend indulging in one of these sets! I also admire the ethos of Cowshed. Their range of honest and natural products is made from organic and fairly traded botanicals, no parabens, artificial colours or nasty hidden ingredients.

The Knackered Cow bath set is now my ultimate go-to set after a long day and it is a lovely indulgent treat or Christmas gift for you or a friend.  I can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t be happy to unwrap one of these boxes on Christmas day so I’m giving this a big thumbs up if you’re looking for Christmas present inspiration! Fingers crossed my boyfriend picks up on the not so subtle hints I’ve been dropping!

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
