Woods of Windsor Blackberry & Thyme Collection


This may ostensibly be for 'gardeners' – but you absolutely do not need green fingers to enjoy this. Seasonally perfect – this is a year for blackberries like none we can remember – Woods of Windsor Blackberry & Thyme handcare is just luscious. Great for anyone's dry paws (but as gardeners ourselves, we can attest to its effectiveness after a major herbaceous border end-of-summer slashing session. Gosh, everything's gone over early, this year!)

Four products – we're hard-pressed to choose a favourite between them. Moisturising Hand Wash (does what it says on the pump-action bottle), Nourishing Hand Cream (ditto – perfect balance of richness and sinks-in-fast-ness), a really excellent Exfoliating Hand Scrub (not vicious, just effective). And – oh, OK, this IS our fave – the Intensive Hand Balm, which is a deep dry for working hands. (Or a great pre-bedtime slather.)

Lovely scent: not overly thyme-y, or too fruity-sweet – just a really great balance of notes of blackberry, green tea, rosemary, thyme, mimosa and white jasmine.

Much kinder to hands than actual blackberrying...
