A few weeks back I was asked if I would like to review some products from Chambers & Co. I had a little browse over their website and discovered that they produce quite a few different products across their range.
I chose to review 3 products from the skin care range. They also have a leather and pet care range.
Chambers & Co the business started in 2015 by an ordinary family who discovered that their toddler had tolerances to a number of food groups and additives when he was small in 2005. This gave them an interest in everyday products like skin care and cleaning. So over the years in between they researched and learned that by using fresh, natural ingredients and by formulating they came up with the products they sell today.
Arnica, Comfrey and Calendula Balm
I chose to review the Arnica, Comfrey and Calendula Balm for my husband because he has a lot of back and neck pain. Many years ago he was in a car accident that compressed his spine so really suffers with his back and neck. We have tried various creams and lotions over the years to relax his muscles and joints and relieve the tension but none have been up to scratch.
This balm is made from a traditional remedy of herbs and essential oils to relieve symptoms of bruising, sprains, swelling, back and joint pain. It helps to boost the body’s natural ability to heal.
The balm contains Arnica 2.5% (something my friend swears by), Comfrey 2% and Calendula 2%. It also contains Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Lavender Essential Oils.
The oils give the balm the most gorgeous relaxing smell. When I rubbed it into my husbands back and neck it felt warming and comforting to him. It was non-greasy as well. This was important to us as I don’t want greasy marks left over the collars of his work shirts! It did help to relieve his aches and pains.
You can use it 3-4 times a day using a small amount.
We received the 50ml pot, but you can buy it online at £8.00 for a 60ml pot.
Aloe Vera Hand Balm
I picked out the Aloe Vera Hand Balm with Coconut and Almond oils to use on myself. Although I’m on maternity leave at the moment and don’t wash my hands constantly like I used to when I was at work, I wanted to try out the hand balm to see how it could help soften and protect my skin.
At work I work in a fresh food area so the need to wash my hands constantly is high. This leads to the natural oils in the skin being stripped out leaving dry and cracked hands.
Aloe Vera is well-known for healing, soothing and mositurising properties (my friend also swears by this and has her own Aloe Vera plant ready). Coconut oil nourishes and moisturises skin, and Almond oil has many therapeutic properties including anti-oxidant and anti- inflammatory.
I love the added scents of Bergamot & Lime which gives the balm a fresh smell. I will be using this balm lots more when I head back to work next month to help my dry skin. But for now it’s great for using after nappy changes!
You can use a small amount of the balm as often as required.
We received a 75ml pot. You can buy a 60ml pot online for £7.50
Carrot Tissue Foot Balm
The third product I chose to review was the Carrot Tissue Foot Balm with Neroli & Ylang Ylang. This balm is formulated to restore, moisturise and soften dry, tired cracked feet. This is my poor feet! When I’m at work I can be on my for feet 8 hours a day, plus I wear safety boots with steel toe caps which are not kind to the skin on your feet.
The balm contains Carrot Tissue Oil which is rich in B-Carotene. This helps to improve the skin’s barrier function. It offers skin softening, moisturising and anti-inflammatory properties.
There is Avocado butter in the skin care balm, it nourishes and soothes the skin and the Hemp Seed Oil has anti-bacterial and antifungal properties. Perfect for my hot sweaty feet after a day in steel toe cap boots!
I have to say the foot balm has been wonderful for my feet. They feel brand new. I’ve been using it once a day before bed for a couple of weeks to get the most out of it. The dry patches have all but gone, they feel soft and moisturised.
Really loving the Neroli & Ylang Ylang scent to the balm. It’s beautifully floral, which is a bit different for a foot balm. I don’t know why but because it’s orange in colour I stupidly thought it would smell of carrots! Haha! You get a pleasant surprise when you first open the lid and the floral smell hits you!
My favourite skin care product out of the three would be the Carrot Tissue Foot balm. The product is amazing and does exactly what it’s supposed to do. In fact all three balms are great. But the smell of the foot balm tipped that to be a winner for me.
I would recommend checking out the Chambers & Co website if you are looking for high quality natural products.
