Hi I bought the borage & candula balm after receiving your email about this balm being easier to apply for my sore dry irritated skin, as nothing i found has helped sooth it and I have very sensitive skin my face being the worse. well I think I've found my perfect product, it literally glides on no pulling of the skin and just melts in with no sticky after feel. its great as I can use it on all parts of my face including lips and on body rather than using several different products for different areas. brilliant for chaffed hands as well, so happy to find something that my skin can tolerate and I can fit the balm in my handbag so always got it on me. I call it wonder balm as my skin after just two days felt smooth and soothed and not irritated and it being suitable for vegetarians is the cherry on the top for me and at a price that's affordable. thanks boo cottage keep up the good work will be ordering again
I bought a sea buckthorn and orange shampoo bar from you at the recent Honiton Eat Festival and I just wanted to say how much I love it! I have always been sceptical of shampoo bars as I was worried that I would struggle to use them with my thick hair. I needn't have worried as, not only does the bar smell wonderful, it lathers beautifully and leaves my hair the softest it has ever been. I am really impressed and am going to order more products!
The advice I received from you before buying was invaluable too, thank you!
I loved the personal touches that accompanied your product. The beautifully packaged parcel that arrived was a delight to open from the crisp brown wrapping, sustainable string and tissue and finally nestling in its bed of straw, the jar. To top this artistic presentation the handwritten message was an extra and unexpected touch which given the last two years, was a lovely warm gesture. I’ll certainly be buying more of your products in the future. Thank you.
Feeling very excited to have found your products. Not only do you have amazing ethical values but products that don’t disappoint and smell heavenly . Especially love the lotion bar as it’s so easy to use.
Thank you so much for my order. What a treat - the perfume on opening the box was amazing. Presentation was wonderful. The aroma is so uplifting, light and refreshing to use.
Items are a delight
Absolutely loving my new shampoo and conditioner bars. They smell beautiful and leave my hair feeling great. Would highly recommend.
I have just started using my second jar of the Berry Cleanser... love this product, truly cleans and refreshes my skin without leaving it feeling greasy. I have also been using the Nourish face oil which smells amazing!
I can honestly say these are the best skincare products I have ever used and not only that, they come beautifully presented in plastic free packaging so win win all round!
Looking forward to trying some of the other products available from Boo Cottage :-)
Think I've just found my new favourite conditioner bar! Honestly I've tried so many over the past couple of years so I was very happy when Boo Cottage released yours. The Rosemary and Nettle conditioner bar is BY FAR the best I've used. The texture is perfect, the scent is amaaaazing, and most of all....it works!
Have recently purchased the chamomile cleanser and the face oil for mature skin from Boo Cottage. My skin feels soft without feeling greasy... and you only need a small amount. Love them both.
Loving the bath truffles. I've tried the rose, citrus and oatmeal ones. They're super moisturising, smell divine and have a satisfying little fizz as they 'melt'. I only use two at a time but that's enough. Just received some more and they're my favourite go to bath product.
I've also got the solid lotion bar - Meadow. I love how it just melts on contact with my skin. Just feels lovely and is amazing after a bath or shower.
I recently purchased the long awaited oat and calendula shampoo and conditioner bars. They are amazing, leaving my hair feeling soft and clean. They will be so much easier to pack for holidays ..... when we eventually get to go on our travels. Well done !
I recently had a realisation about how much plastic I'm using and wanted to switch to a shampoo bar but I was slightly sceptical of them as I tried one before which dried my hair out and left it feeling unpleasant. I was therefore really pleased to find the oat and calendula shampoo bar from Boo Cottage! It makes my hair feel healthy and soft, and the conditioner bar is excellent too. They also do a really lovely chamomile cleanser which is good for sensitive skin like mine and is very effective at getting makeup off. Would definitely recommend.
I’m so pleased I’ve found you! Your soaps are lovely and so beautifully packaged and the Lotion Bar is a real revelation! Can’t wait to try the rest of the range... ;-). Thankyou.
I purchased a gift box for a friend's birthday. It arrived quickly, beautifully packaged and the recipient loved it. I will definitely be ordering again!
Thank you so much for making such lovely products. A friend recommended you and I’ve been using your gentle cleanser and face oil, coastal bar plus foot scrubby thing for a few days and I adore all of them. I don’t know what magic you used to get the cleanser to melt/emulsify with water like that but it’s amazing and is having such a calming effect on my easily inflamed skin. Thanks again, Wren
I first heard of Boo Cottage about 3 years ago when I did a soap and skincare workshop with Nic and Ben. It was a fantastic experience (lunch was fab too) and opened up my eyes as to how good quality skincare products are made. I have bought a number of products from Nic and Ben over the years but my favourite at the moment has to be the Berry cleanser which smells divine and is beautiful on my skin. I then follow it up with the Balance facial oil and give my face a really good calming massage. My husband uses the Woodsman beard oil, which he says has made a huge improvement to his skin and my son uses the Soothing Oatmeal bath truffles and Goats milk Oat and honey soap in the bath as he suffers from eczema, which helps soothes his skin amazingly before bed.
If any of my family have a birthday I always treat them to something from Boo and I love that I have found a local independent business who makes beautiful, handmade soap and skincare products based right here in Somerset. I will continue to support Boo Cottage Botanicals and look forward to the ever growing range that they fantastically make.
As usual it was a delight to do business with the crew at Boo cottage. The item was easy to find on the website, the buying process was like a dream without any nasty surprises that you can get on some sites, I was told that my purchase was on its way and low and behold there it was on the doorstep. It was only a small item however it was beautifully packaged and showed that they really cared about me as a customer.
Well done everyone and keep up the good work.
Bought items as a gift - recipient was delighted with them. All correspondence was swift and delivery in good time. Can't recommend highly enough
I love Boo Cottage Bocanicals so much. Their products feel so nourishing and natural on my skin and smell amazing.
I was also really impressed with the delivery service - even though I had ordered these for myself the packaging made me feel like I had received a gift of love from a friend.
Lovely products makes my skin super soft
Amazing products, noticeable change to my skin and always so professional. Wouldn’t use anything else. Strongly recommend!
I received some lavender bath truffles and some lip balm for Christmas from a friend. I fell in love with your products so much I had to buy some to share with some of my besties, who are both working super hard on the front line during this strange time. Once I am able to get them to them I’m sure they will fall in love as well while thoroughly relaxing in the bath. Amazing presentation and packaging Beautiful 🥰
Beautiful honest products that only the best ingredients are used within.
One of my favourite ranges I love to gift and indeed use myself on a daily basis.
Always prompt delivery!
I came to a fabulous soap making workshop and made some beautiful soap. It was very enjoyable to see the development from raw ingredients to finished product. I learnt so much. Thank you so much.
9 months after meeting Ben I finally got to do a workshop with my friend Kate. We did the whole day, natural soap and skin care and it was well worth the wait and 2 hour drive. We had a lovely day and got to take our handmade goodies home. Nic and Ben are amazing teachers and hosts and I would not hesitate to recommend the workshop. Ben makes an amazing lunch too ! Thank you for a lovely day, it was just what we both needed.
Just spent a fantastic Sunday morning with my sister and niece on Nic and Ben’s Natural Skincare Making workshop. A short introduction was followed by a sniffing, smelling and rubbing in session where we tried out the various ingredients to see which we preferred and then on to the making. This was hugely enjoyable and we were provided with all the instruction, equipment and ingredients to “cook up” our lip balms, bath bombs and scrubs amongst other things. The morning was rounded off with coffee and a chance to personalise and decorate our products. A lovely way to spend a morning and we have all come home with a box of deliciously yummy products. I can thoroughly recommend this course, Nic and Ben were very welcoming and the whole session was conducted in a warm, friendly and enjoyable atmosphere.
Had a great time at a Soap Making Workshop back in March and have now started using the soap. It is a lovely texture, smell and best of all I made it and know what went in it. I went to the work shop with a friend and we swapped a couple of soaps so shared our delights. I'd highly recommend this and will probably do it again but definitely will look at the moisturiser days too. Bridget
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for such a fantastic day today at your workshop. I've just sent a picture of all my goodies to my daughter in North Wales and she was really impressed with all my goodies.
You're both so patient and explain everything very clearly, it was certainly a great pleasure to be with you today.
I would love to come back later in the year with my daughter who would love it I'm sure. I'll keep an eye on your website.
I met Ben at the Shaftesbury Christmas fair last year and ended up buying soaps and bath bombs for my step daughter who suffers from eczema. Also some soap for myself and a friend. The soap leaves your hands feeling lovely and soft. I recently purchased some more bath bombs for myself , soap dishes which are great as they let your soap dry and you don’t end up with a slimy mess. I also bought some facial oil which I am now using instead of my well known face cream that I have been using for years. The oil makes my face feel so much softer . I am now going to book a days workshop to make some of my own. Thank you
I initially met Nichola at a Christmas Fayre and chatted to her about the options for Hen Do workshops. From beginning to end Nichola was so helpful in the organising of the Soap Workshop, happy to answer any questions I had.
The workshop itself was a brilliant Hen Do activity. Nichola and Ben were both really attentive, making it fun for everyone. We learnt about the chemistry of soap making without it being too in depth.
The whole group had a great time and it was really lovely that they got to take something physical (the soap) away from the weekend.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the workshop to anyone who is thinking of attending or planning a Hen Do.
Thanks again Nichola & Ben
Huge thanks to Nic and Ben for two such fun and interesting workshops. I really enjoyed my day and learned so much about natural skincare and soap-making - best of all, I made lots of gorgeous goodies to bring home with me. Great time - thoroughly recommended.
I had a superb day making soap, lip balms, bath and body goodies. It was fun as well as being informative. We were only a small group so got a lot of 1 to 1 help as well as being given time to mix and blend our own ideas. The raw ingredients were of excellent quality and the whole day passed so quickly!!
Nic and Ben make an impressive team with suggestions when we needed help and time to reflect when we made our own decisions. We had a lovely lunch and were able to take home what we had made. All in all a brilliant day.
An enjoyable morning, learning new beauty recipes, Nic was great, with lots of good tips, it was definitely a worthwhile workshop.
I had a fantastic time at the Natural Skincare workshop. It was a small group, so we received loads of attention and advice. I learned so much! Nic and Ben have a wealth of knowledge and are such lovely people. The time just flew and I left feeling that I had been fully absorbed in every moment. It was such a treat to leave with lovely goodies that I'd made myself, and which I'm continuing to enjoy. I especially love my balm bar :) Thank you, Nic and Ben, and hope to see you again for Soap Making.
My daughter and I came along to a beginners' soapmaking workshop last week. Really enjoyed it, Nic & Ben are very welcoming, and are patient and helpful tutors. We were delighted with our soaps. Thank you both and hope to come again for another of your workshops.
My gorgeous 'Spa Box' has arrived and boy what a gorgeous smell. I can't wait to pamper myself. I love your packaging too. I know a few friends who would be quite jealous. Lx
I've attended both the 'Natural Skin Care Workshop', and the 'Introductory Soap Making Course'. I enjoyed both very much.
I ordered a couple of gift boxes as Christmas presents and was really impressed with speed of delivery and presentation. Good value too! (Would post on FB but recipients would see ;-))
Really pleased with everything! The goats milk and honey soap is lovely for my sensitive skin. The soap tray set will be perfect for gifts, I will definitely buy more!
I was given a Lemongrass Soap, and was really impressed by the fragrance (it really does make you feel wide awake in the morning) the quality and the beautiful packaging... so much so that I have now bought a Gorgeous Gift Box as a present for a relative.
I brought your gorgeous Mint lip balm when you where showing your lovely products in Shaftesbury. The lip balm has been an outstanding success so will be ordering again, perhaps Orange this time. Looking forward to seeing you in Shaftesbury again.
Love love love my soaps and truffles!!! Thank you so much, can't wait to try them out. I spotted your page off someone on instagram. And thought I would have a nosey so glad I did, they smell good enough to eat. Even my little one has asked for me to get her some. Thank you so much for your help nic. Will definitely be buying againx
I love natural products and these do not disappoint. My gift box arrived very quickly and I am really pleased with the contents. Thank you!
I just received the gift box I ordered and everything's divine!! I think I'm going to have to order another one for me!!
Fantastic produce. Fantastic customer service. What more can we say ... keep up the good work! Thank you.
I've been using the Shea Butter soap for weeks and its lovely, feels moisturising, smells divine and is lasting really well
I love my lipbalm- a quality product that has lasted for ages. Have ordered several bars of soap for Christmas presents and I'm sure my family will love them as much as I do!
Really loved the soap. Makes my bathroom smell divine! Looks great, feels so creamy, and lasts a long time.
I went to 2 Fayres last weekend, and other makes of soap were much more expensive, and smaller bars.
