The magic of Dr. Bronner’s is its affordability and versatility. Famous for its 18 uses from 1 bottle this liquid soap at £4.99 per 236ml bottle is worth a try.

So for me, being more of a lover of shower gels and creams, I was quite dubious whether to try Dr Bronner’s Bottle of Magic. Like many others, soaps have a tendency to leave the skin feeling dry and almost leather like, which is a horrible feeling after a soothing bath, when you should be feeling like silk….but here goes… 

 

Check out Dr Bronner’s “18in1” uses as listed on his products…..Impressive!

  1. Shave
  2. Shampoo
  3. Dental
  4. Soap bath
  5. Peppermint is nature’s own unsurpassed fragrant Deodorant!
  6. A drop is best Mint Toothpaste; brushes Dentures Clean!
  7. A dash in water is the ideal Breath Freshener & Mouth Wash!
  8. Peppermint Oil Soap for Dispensers, Uniforms, Baby, Beach!
  9. Dilute for ideal  Body Rub
  10. Foot Bath
  11. Douche
  12. Hot Towel-Massage the entire body, always towards your heart.
  13. Pets
  14. Silk, wool, washing clothes and dishes
  15. Body tingles head to toe – keeps cool!
  16. 3 dashes in water rinse most Sprays Off fruit & vegetables!
  17. 1/4 oz in qt H2O is Pest Spray!
  18. Dash, no rash Diaper-Soap!

It comes in 8 main varieties, the original being the famous tingly peppermint – followed by Lavender, Eucalyptus, Citrus, Almond, Rose, unscented Baby Mild and Tea Tree which can even be used to treat minor cuts. Dr Bronner’s Pure Magic Soap has NO synthetic foaming agents, thickeners, preservatives, fragrances, dyes or whiteners. The soaps are made with certified Fair Trade and organic ingredients sourced from India and its packaging is completely biodegradable.

So ……with my bottle of the original Dr Bronner’s Peppermint liquid soap in hand, I took to the bathroom to test 2 of its recommended uses!!

Soap bath – standing up and washing at a sink is not my idea of relaxing so I moved this method from the sink to the bath! Adding just 3 drops to hot running water the fresh peppermint scent masked my bathroom! “Breathing deeply” as advised on the bottle I laid back, relaxed, inhaled and exhaled and was instantly relaxed. Almost like a decongestant, Dr Bronner’s Magic Soap opened up the sinuses, and made my nose tingle. This would be great natural product or clearing the mind if you have cold/flu symptoms. But…enough about relaxing and onto the cleaning! This magic liquid soap has a surprisingly rich lather for such a thin and initially watery product due to its very high coconut oil content and again just a few drops of the liquid onto a loofah, sponge or into the palm of your hand is enough for the entire body.  It cleans the skin effortlessly leaving body feeling fresh and tingling. With so many cleaning powers for the body and your home the soap is in no way abrasive as maybe expected. In fact its the complete opposite. Importantly for me it did not leave my skin dry or leathery. I wouldn’t say it was as moisturising as shower creams etc, but for a formula that is a soap and not promoted for its moisturising properties, my skin was surprisingly soft and the tingly sensation lasts once dry.

Shampoo  – I would recommend using Dr Bronner’s Magic Soap as a shampoo for cleanliness only.  It lathers well on hair and cleans just as well as any other shampoo. Being an “18in1” bottle it would be great for those travelling with the need for minimal luggage or those of you who place no emphasis on having silky/shiny hair. But for those who like to replicate that salon feeling, unfortunately I would not recommend this as a shampoo. It did the cleaning job, but it left my hair feeling dry and brittle which was not a good feeling. although my hair smelt fabulous, it was not so fab to touch.

I’ve always been curious about Shu Uemura cosmetics, it’s a small brand that has been around for some time which I think is very impressive. I hopped along to the Covent Garden store a few weeks back and met with the Store Manager Daniel who talked me through some of Shu Uemura’s best sellers.. so here they are:

Shu Uemura Pro Concealer £16.50- If like me you’re an individual who finds it very hard to get a brill concealer then look no further. Shu Uemura’s pro concealer is a orangey peachy shade that I honestly thought I would NEVER go near! Daniel explained to me that the peachy orange shade helps neutralise the look of dark circles giving your eye that instant pop and lift. This concealer can be worn on its own or underneath your normal concealer. It really does do the job that most concealers don’t.

Shu Uemura Fresh Performance Cleansing Oil £27 150ml- An oil cleanser which melts away all the makeup, grime and build up from the day. Apply a small amount in to the palm of your hand a massage into your face gently. Wash off with water and the oil turn to milk. This cleansing oil is great for combination skin and leave your skin clean and fresh. If you have a different skin type Shu Uemura have many different cleansing oils to suit your skin type.

Shu Uemura UV Under Base Moose £28- This product gave me a little trouble in the beginning as it can leave a very annoying white residue on the face if you use to much. I was advised to use about a walnut size on my face but found that this was way to much. I use a smaller amount and evenly distribute it on my face, when used correctly this moose is a brilliant primer and really does help to keep your makeup fresh all day long. It also contains an SPF 30 making it even more of a magic product.

Shu Uemura Glow On Blush £19.50 – A fabulous blush that really does enhance your glow. Very easy to apply and lasts all day! Also great for blending with other colours and contouring the face.

Shu Uemura Stage Performer Instant Glow Price TBC- Save the best till last, Stage Performer is one of Shu Uemura’s newest and best-selling products. A multi functional beauty cream which helps enhance the finish of makeup. When you look closely the cream has very small gold particals which melt upon application to give you a super fabulous glow. Daniel informed me that the little gold particles are in fact real gold. Contains Ginkgo Leaf extract to fight oxidation. Instantly, skin appears more luminous, translucent and smooth. provides 24-hour lasting moisture. What more could you want? Liquid gold on your face!!!!
