(Gifted) This package couldn’t have landed on my doorstep at a better time, what with our hands taking a battering these past few months with all the extra handwashing, sanitising and on top of that, the cold dry Winter weather. My hands had started to really look and feel dry and in need of some serious TLC. This parcel of body care products were a welcomed sight and I have been using them religiously for months now. They’re from a Polish brand called YOPE, who I had never tried before but had seen their products in Waitrose (you can’t miss their adorable packaging). I have been trying 3 products from the Linden Line, and they’ve become a very soothing and nourishing part of my body care routine.
This trio is the perfect way to transition your skin from the dry days of Winter to the freshness of Spring. They have a lovely fresh, floral scent with a hint of sweetness. The fragrance is light but the body lotion in particular leaves your skin with a crisp scent that is more noticeable than the liquid soap and body wash. YOPE describe the Linden Line scent as follows,
‘These products feature our signature fragrance inspired by the scent of sun-kissed linden blossoms on a warm spring day. And because both are rich and nourishing, they leave skin supple and softly-scented with a subtle fragrance that lingers.’
YOPE Linden Natural Liquid Soap*
This lovely, light liquid soap is made with 93% natural ingredients, it’s gentle and moisturising formula includes lovely botanical ingredients like flower extracts of linden, marigold & chamomile. Those combined with YOPE’s TGA formula (mixture of natural washing substances) which includes coconut oil, sesame oil and corn glucose & all which are kind to your hands, leaving them feeling clean, soft and hydrated. Plant extracts-from linseed, linden, marigold and chamomile flowers-have anti-inflammatory and soothing properties, so your skin is in safe hands and will also smell incredible.
YOPE Linden Line Shower Gel*
Similar to the lovely handwash, this shower gel has a calming and fresh scent and will leave your skin feeling refreshed, supple and smooth. It is made using 93% natural ingredients, which includes the star of the show, Linden flower extract which contains flavonoids, vitamins and mineral salts whose nutritional properties cannot be overstated. Thanks to its gentle ingredients and neutral pH, the gel doesn’t irritate even the most sensitive skin.
YOPE Hand & Body Lotion*
This product has been wonderful in combating the complete destruction of my hands with all the hand sanitiser over the past few months. It is made using 98% natural ingredients, so lovely, gentle and bursting with hydrating ingredients including shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil and allantoin for lasting moisture and comfort. This creamy lotion also contains nutrient-rich flaxseed oil and soothing extracts of chamomile and marigold flowers. With added antioxidant linden blossom extract, rich in protective flavonoids and nourishing vitamins and minerals, it leaves the skin looking smooth, healthy and plump. I have been using it religiously, and I like the handy pump bottle, it makes applying it so easy and quick. This is my favourite product of the three, I love the scent, the creamy but not greasy formula and just how soothing it is on my hands and body.
Products range in price from £7.99 to £9.99, they are affordable and superb quality.
