Cowshed Haul


I've held onto a Cowshed voucher for just under a year, and I realised that it was going to expire in a month. With my nearest Cowshed shop in London, I took the time to pop into the shop whilst there on Wednesday to pick up some goodies! For those who aren't acquainted with Cowshed, it's a company that produces natural and organic bath and shower products. One of their collections CHEEKY can also be bought there, known for their nail care products. 

Firstly I picked up the Knackered Cow Relaxing Shower Scrub. Firstly, can we just admire the fricking names. Basically, the products come in these different ranges, with different scents varying from "Moody Cow" "Horny Cow" "Knackered Cow" etc, I actually hysterically laughed and took loads of Snapchats. What I love about this scent is that it is a very subtle lavender. A lot of people don't particularly like it, calling it quite a "granny scent" (soz Mum, I know how much you love lavender) but I absolutely love it! Now I haven't actually used the product as of yet, as I'm moving out in a couple of weeks and am trying to use up some old products, but apparantly this soothes skin and gently exfoliated which sounds so ideal for my skin type. 



Next is the Udderly Gorgeous Bath & Shower Gel. If I actually owned a bath, or knew where I was moving to next, I would love to have picked up some other bath products, but instead picked up a very fancy shower gel. Now, if I didn't have this voucher, I can 100% say, I would never spend £16 on a shower gel. Even more insane is that it is £18 online. Like yo, dat really a lot of money. But when you have a gift voucher, it's a bit you know, more acceptable. The scent of this product is very fresh, kind of has a bit of an aniseed  smell (which I'm not too much of a fan of).


Next are two nail polishes from the brand CHEEKY. Firstly is a bright peach neon shade Peach Perfect, with a sort of salmon/pink undertone. I thought this would be such a gorgeous shade for Summer. Then I picked up Peach & Love a delicate soft pink nude shade. I do own a couple of CHEEKY nail polishes and I love the formula. Although it does take around 3 coats to create a full-coverage, the longevity is really nice, and they have a lovely sheen on them!


So there we have it! A bit of a different haul today, thought it would be nice to mix it up a little! Cowshed also have a lovely spa but seeing as I don't have one near me I couldn't take the time! But they look so lovely and calming in there! Let me know if you've tried anything from Cowshed and if so, what's your favourite products?

    1. I think that's because it's like their sister brand or they own Cheeky or something? The Cheeky range is a lot more affordable though than normal Cowshed! xx

  2. I'd probably have laughed at the names of these products too! And you're right, £16 is a hell of a lot for a shower gel. Soap & Glory is about as luxury as it gets.

    1. I know right, I like question sometimes buying a shower gel that's like £3! I don't think I would really buy it unless I was either minted or had a voucher like this time! xx

  3. I've never heard of this brand before, those names are hilarious! I love lavender scents for the shower when I'm trying to relax so that shower scrub sounds lovely :)

  8. Peach Perfect looks like such a pretty colour! I've only ever tried a lip balm from Cowshed and didn't love it unfortunately! The scents sound gorgeous!

    1. Oh no! To be fair, I had a hand cream from there and I didn't particularly love the scent and barely use it - but here's hoping I'm a fan of the other products! xx

  9. I have seen the brand Cowshed back in Malaysia but I don't think I've seen it here in Canada. I know they have pretty good moisturizers for dry skin but never tried them myself.

  11. Oh, Cowshed is actually one of my favourite brands for this kind of stuff, but it's just soooo overpriced! I mean, I love the sound of that shower gel but £16?! You can get a lovely smelling shower gel for just one quid! I remember getting a Cowshed lotion once and I loved it so much, their stuff always smells so dreamy :) <3

    1. oh I'm so glad you love their products, that makes me hopeful that I will actually like the ones I picked up! I totally agree though, this feels like it is so overly priced, like high-end over-priced! xx
