Wouldn’t you though?

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Beauty features here.

Bugle Horn, Honeybell soap 039
Soaps can seem a little old-fashioned in these days of plastic pump-and-go, but these exotic, organic Honeybell soaps are lovely. As you’d expect of any soap these days, they’re very PC with no animal testing, parabens, animal fat etc and contain just five basic ingredients – coconut oil, sustainable palm oil, Greek olive oil, shea butter and castor oil, held together with water from the Lake District. I rather like the Lake District connection, the sense that I’m washing in pristine natural water rather than the limescale that passes for H20 around here.

Bugle Horn, Honeybell soap 038

Tonight, my oldest son willingly entered the shower for the first time in years on the promise of using Honeybell’s coconut and lime soap (cost £4.50; in pre-teen terms frankly priceless). But there are loads of interesting ‘varieties’ that go past the usual rose and lavenders. Oriental plum. Blackberry and basil. Bluebell. Lemongrass and ginger. All contained in pretty but not cloyingly girly cardboard boxes, so ideal for presents.

I have the feeling that it’s a little company on the up, with the new mens range of products looking natty along with the foot scrubs and facial creams. (The hand and body moisturisers look a bit own-brand supermarket but you can’t have it all!)

Anyway, here’s the link if you fancy getting yourself in a bit of a lather.
