Celtic Herbal Natural Handmade Skin Care Review and Spring Giveaway

Celtic Herbal are a Welsh company who hand create luxury skincare and other products using carefully extracted botanical oils and natural ingredients. They don't test on animals and their products don't contain sulphates, parabens, chemical preservatives or petroleum or palm oil. Good for you and good for the environment. Perfect pampering for your skin as we approach Spring and start stripping off the layers...

Celtic Herbal sent me some of their gorgeously indulgent products to try out, and they have also offered a giveaway prize for one of my readers.


I was sent the Wellness Gift Box and it's gorgeously presented in a very smart box. An excellent present that makes you feel spoilt before you even undo the ribbon. Inside the box doesn't disappoint, 4 beautiful products - the Exotic Wood & Ylang Ylang Soap, Bath Salts, Bath Oil and a Travel Candle.


Any regular readers will know that I'm a big fan of natural skincare, but not many people know that  in a previous life I studied Aromatherapy Massage, so I was delighted to find that the Celtic Herbal Wellness Gift Set is fragranced with Ylang Ylang. I have a very poor sense of smell, but I have always adored YlangYlang, both for the fragrance and the relaxing, calming effects that this natural oil has.


No surprises that after a lovely Mother's Day bath using the Bath Crystals, a few drops of Bath Oil and the Soy Candle, I felt pampered and relaxed and was ready for my dressing gown and a movie on the sofa. My skin felt gorgeous and soft, and actually everyone slept well, the gentle smell of Ylang Ylang had escaped from the bathroom and my whole upstairs had an air of calm.


Celtic Herbal also sent 4 products from the new Gwdihw range - naturally kind skincare designed to suit the young members of the family. I did look it up, Gwdihw means Owl, and these are a wise bunch! The products are really interesting and useful.

I was sent four of the balms, each in these great little metal tins which are brilliant for travelling and keeping in a pocket or handbag. They won't spill, and the balms are hard enough at room temperature that your child won't scoop half out in one go!


Twinkle Toes Foot Balm - a gorgeous moisturising and soothing sweet peppermint balm - fantastic for my teenagers who work in restaurants.
Peppermint Lip Balm - a really nice lip balm that doesn't tingle when you apply it, but still has an amazing fresh peppermint smell. Good for sore, cracked lips.
Honey And Lemon Lip Balm - this has a very subtle smell that is very pleasant. Ideal if your child prefers plainer tastes. Good for sore, swollen lips.
Night Owl Sleep And Balm - this is genius and works well with my youngest. A calming and relaxing balm that you apply to pressure points and let Mandarin and Ylang Ylang soothe you towards sleep.

All Celtic Herbal products contain no nasty chemicals. They are responsibly sourced, using only sustainable and ethical ingredients, pure vegetable oils and high quality essential oils. Beeswax helps produce a creamy, enriching and long-lasting soap and candles are made from pure soy wax with eco-wicks.


Everything I've tried has been excellent quality. beautifully presented, modern and it's worked so incredibly well. I couldn't be happier

The Gwdihw balms cost £4-£4.49 each and the Wellness Gift Box costs £28.00. Very fair prices for such excellent quality and ingredients, and products that will last a long time because you need very little. All Celtic Herbal products are available via the Celtic Herbal website.

I'm delighted to have a Wellness Gift Box to give away to one of my readers. Entry to the giveaway is by Gleam form below, and it will end at midnight Sunday 15th April. Open to UK entrants only, full terms and conditions are at the bottom of the Gleam form.
