My Reviews This Week

Professor Scrubbington's

I have been sent a lovely set from Professor Scrubbington’s we have reviewed these before but you can never have enough of their wonderfully scented products in the house! 

Big bonus points for presentation the box they are delivered in looks fab, like a travelling suitcase.  The postage label peels off easily too so if it’s a gift you can wrap it straight up as it is! 

The bottles are easy to use; one squeeze gives you the perfect amount so we find no wastage.  If you want to refresh yourself with my earlier review please do but suffice to say we still LOVE these clever products.


As the product magically foams its easy for children to manage, they can be more independent in the bathroom doing an effective job washing their hair and body.  I also feel very reassured with my boys using these products, as they are a minimum 98% natural - so safe and gentle on their skin.  The roll on is ideal if your child feels they want to start using deodorant products and because it’s free from free of parabens and sodium laureth sulphate you have no issues with them using products full of harsh chemicals.

The fragrance is our most favourite part, its so refreshing and lingers on your skin.

Craft Gin Club

I am not really sure where my next delivery came from, as I am not a gin drinker myself.  Nonetheless it makes a wonderful gift idea so without further ado let me introduce you to the Craft Gin Club.

It really was a lovely package that included a bottle of Kongsgaard Raw Gin, Hoogly Baked Apple Chai Tea, Anna’s Original Ginger Thins, Folkington’s Indian Tonic Water and Cheggs Chocolate Eggs (a nice seasonal treat for Easter!).  It’s a great way to be introduced to a new gin but also sample some lovely surprises.  The contents vary from month to month but always include the all-important full bottle of gin! 

You also get a copy of the fascinating club magazine Ginned! with lots of information about your included gin, recipes and in this particular edition an interesting article on HYGGE (as someone who loves to be cosy this was ideal for me!).  You can fill out the included crossword for the chance of win your next gin of the month box for free. 

It felt like a lot of care and attention has been put into developing the concept.  I must admit I am impressed, gin drinker or not, this subscription concept is brilliant.  I liked being introduced to lots of Danish/Scandinavia influences.

Memberships costs £40 a month so if you feel you deserve a treat and gin is your weapon of choice why not spoil yourself.  It offers exceptional value for money!  You have the freedom to have your deliveries monthly or you can opt to have them bi-monthly or quarterly.

Thornleys Natural Foods

I was sent a few of these Thornleys Natural Foods sauce mixes to sample and we found them very convenient and also flavoursome and tasty.  They are a made from 100% natural products and as they have been developed from a family of Coeliacs you can rest assured these products are well suited to your needs if you suffer from this digestive complaint.  The packets carry the Coeliac logo as they have no wheat or gluten.


The Chilli Con Carne Mix (£2.15) was not too spicy which was perfect for me as I am not a fan of food that is too hot.  This is a flavour the whole family can enjoy.


The Tuna and Pasta bake (£2.20) was delicious and transformed our tuna and pasta meal!  The subtle flavours would appeal to the boys and this might be one way to finally get them to eat tuna, as they really like other pasta bakes.

I like the ease of preparation, the instructions are simple enough to follow but the end result is a nourishing meal that will satisfy everyone.
