Living Nature Nourishing Manuka Bodywash and Hand Cream

My final review for My Pure this month is actually 2 products. I have Living Nature Nourishing Manuka Bodywash and Living Nature Nourishing Manuka Hand and Body Cream.

The thing I loved about these bottles is that they are shaped in a semi circle so you can place them back to back and it looks almost like one bottle....

Now for the info! Both of these products are available to buy from the My Pure website. The Nourishing Manuka Bodywash comes in a 200ml bottle for £13.21* and the Nourishing Manuka Hand and Body Cream also comes in a 200ml bottle for £17.61*
The bottles shown above are 50ml.
The key ingredients are Avocado Oil, Macadamia Oil and Manuka Honey, all of which are known for their softening and soothing properties.

I have to say that i'm a little torn over these products as I base alot of my opinion on the smell - and the smell of these just isn't for me! The problem wasn't so much the lavender, but the strength of it. I personally found it way too strong.
I have extremely dry skin down the fronts of my lower legs and find it difficult to get any sort of body wash that actually makes a difference, however, I was really pleased with the results I got from this. After just the first use, my legs felt alot less tight than normal and weren't flaky whilst drying....a first for me! I then applied the hand and body cream and although it has no greasy afterfeel, I could actually feel it working and my legs looked and felt much better than with my regular moisturiser. My hands also felt pretty darn good and no flaky skin between my fingers, although the smell was slightly offputting!
Overall, I found both these products worked well together and helped alleviate my dry itchy skin. My skin is also quite sensitive, but i had no adverse reaction to either of these and would quite happily recommend them to anyone who suffers with dry, itchy skin.

These are my own opinions, however due to different skin types etc your own opinion may differ.
