Heathcote & Ivory have just released their charming ‘By The Sea Collection’ – an array of luxurious vegan-friendly hand creams, washes, soaps and much more. As the name suggests, its products have a real fresh, sea breeze feel to them which helps transport you to the bracing British coastline and beautiful endless Summers. I am lucky enough to live by the sea in Cornwall and this collection captures being by the sea in every way, the scent, packaging and the products help keep your skin feeling soft, nourished and soothed. Ideal after a day of being in the salty air, windswept beaches and sunshine.
The, By The Sea Collection is classic Heathcote & Ivory, exceptional quality for a great price. From the simple, pretty, spa like packaging which is made from sustainably sourced sugarcane, to the fantastic quality of the products themselves, which are vegan, cruelty free and enriched with a seaweed complex infused with kelp and sea oak. Oh and finally the ‘By The Sea’ scent which captures the essence of the coast, both the calm and relaxing escapism as well as the energy and exhilarating strength of the ocean and coastal landscape. Using citrus and woody notes alongside, fresh violets and soft musk, you’re left feeling revived.
I have been trying out a few products from the collection and the trio of travel sized hand creams have been a godsend, like almost everyone using hand sanitiser a lot means my hands are dry and in dire need of some TLC. So I have popped one tube in my handbag, one in my car and the other is on my desk. So I can apply it when my hands are feeling dry throughout the day. The cream is enriched with vitamin E, aloe, glycerin and a seaweed complex, leaving your hands feeling comfortable (not greasy) and protected. At the heart of this new collection is its scent, and that beautiful, calming yet energising scent lingers on our hands long after you have applied the cream. It is so nice.
This not only has the most fresh, soothing scent, but the walnut shell and sea salt scrub helps smooth and polish your skin. The scrubbies help gently exfoliate away dull, dry skin, leaving your body feeling soft, clean and smooth. Very much needed after a day on the beach, wearing suntan lotion. It is enriched with seaweed extracts, aloe vera and extract of arnica flower. It has a rich, gel like formula has the perfect amount of scrub without being abrasive, think gentle and reviving!
I just love the body duo, the shower gel is the perfect way to refresh your skin after a long day enjoying a coastal walk and the body lotion helps revive and nourish your skin after being out in the elements, as it is enriched with sweet almond oil, moringa oil, cocoa seed butter and a seaweed complex. Infused with the By The Sea fragrance, notes of lemon and bergamot, fresh violets and soft musk, woods, a hint of tobacco and musk. It really does make your bathroom feel like a high-end spa! Such a Summer treat for your skin.
By The Sea bottles are made from ‘green’ plastic from sustainably sourced sugarcane. They are 100% recyclable. It’s always nice to see brands taking bigger steps to be more green and environmentally friendly.
