Recent Purchases: Holland and Barrett

Before this year I didn’t really buy anything in Holland and Barrett, but after finding the Dr Organic Snail gel range I’ve ended up trying other things from there more. I did a small order, mainly to replace the Dr Organic things but I saw some other bits I wanted to try, I did manage to forget the face masks I originally meant to order as they have some really nice sounding ones on there.

Apart from the two Dr Organic things I haven’t tried any of these before and I haven’t actually heard of any of them before doing the search on the Holland and Barrett site. A while ago I did a pot about travel sickness and someone recommended the ginger sweets from Holland and Barrett so I got a pack of them, the chewy ones as they were the cheapest and said they’re for travel sickness. I also thought I’d give some of the hair care products as I’ve always had a flaky scalp and will always try a new thing for that as most of the others don’t seem to work at all. The couple of beauty products are ones I’ve never heard of seen before but I was intrigued by the one and am trying to find a good foundation. It’s a bit of a mix of everything in here.

Review: Dr Organic Snail Gel Facial Serum

A couple of weeks ago I did a review of the Dr Organic Snail Gel and, as I got three of the products in the set in the Boxing Day sales I thought I’d review the other two as well. This week it’s the serum’s turn and you might be able to see from the bottle that I’ve used about three quarters of the bottle already so I’ve given it a proper try. I have been using it alongside the Snail Gel itself for most of the time I’ve been using it, but did use it by itself for a couple of weeks at the beginning.

This Organic Snail Gel Facial Serum is by Dr Organic and is available exclusively at Holland and Barrett in the UK, I’m not sure about stockists outside of the UK though. It costs £18.99 and comes in a 30ml bottle with a pump lid. At the moment the Dr Organic Snail Gel range is in a three for two offer. Their products are cruelty free, as is this product, and I’m not sure whether this product is suitable for vegetarians, the others in the range are but not suitable for vegans, it’s best if you check the ingredients on the website for this as I don’t recognise which are vegetarian friendly.
