greenscents | natural cleaning products | spray and laundry liquid | eczema | sensitive skin

I am always on the lookout for natural cleaning products so when I found greenscents I was looking forward to trying what they had on offer.

We were sent 4 products by this company:

Citrus loo cleaner 
Herbal multi surface spray 
Nonscents laundry liquid 
Minty laundry conditioner

All these products are produced in small batches in Somerset using pure exmoor water.

I don't usually use a conditioner when I wash clothes as I have sensitive skin but because the ingredients are all natural I decided to give it a go.

I was really impressed with the results of the two liquids combined. The clothes came out really soft but without the residue that is sometimes left with conditioners that irritates the skin.

Also the bottles last a bit longer because they are concentrated. The conditioner in particular lasted well as you only have to use a small amount.

The citrus loo cleaner had a nice orange scent to it that lasted quite a while even when the toilet was flushed which I was really impressed with. 

The multi spray was really good for cleaning things such as the oven as it got rid of grease really well. I really like the scent to it, it has peppermint and rosemary oil which go really well together and its a nice smell to have in the kitchen as it isn't overpowering when you are preparing food.

Rawr chocolate bars | organic | dairy free | gluten free | vegan | vegetarian

This is a company that make raw chocolate bars that are a great substitute if you are allergic to or would rather not consume milk, gluten or wheat. 

Or if, like me, you want to have the taste of chocolate without all the added nasties.

I was sent 6 bars from the range to sample. The flavours were:

Organic Chocolate
Organic Dark Chocolate
fOrganic Mint flavour
Organic Orange flavour
Organic Goji berries with vanilla
Organic Lucuma Cacao

Each of the bars are organic, gluten free, dairy free, wheat free, vegetarian and vegan.

My little boy who is just 18 months absolutely loved them and it was nice to be giving him a healthier alternative to chocolate.

There was no bitter aftertaste to any of the flavours and it really felt like you were eating something that was a treat.

My favourite was the goji berries with vanilla one as I thought this was an interesting new taste and I hadn't heard of goji berries before.

I was impressed with the fact that the foil and kraft paper of the packaging is fully recyclable.

I was also impressed with the price of these as they are very reasonable for the size of bar you receive.

They also do a love collection which is 4 of the bars wrapped in a lovely ribbon with a gift card which is a great idea for a gift.
