Janey Loves Big Green Smile

Big Green Smile and a great discount for video viewers !

BigGreenSmile is a small business that has grown rapidly through word of mouth over the last 3 years.

They offer great choice (2,500 natural products) - The UK's widest selection of natural beauty products and ethical products from both well known brands and new smaller brands just coming to market.

Delighted to find loads of my favourite companies, skincare and beauty, cleaning and laundry and some great eco gadgets.

One thing that sets Big Green Smile apart is they really know their stuff, on the site they’ve included
lots of information on all of the products to enable our customers to make an informed choice, including of course full ingredients listings for all products to offer complete transparency.  That’s one of the difficulties buying online, you can’t actually turn it over and see whats in it, but here you can feel assured all the info is there.  Theres some informative articles and you can even take the Green Quiz which is lots of fun.

Its also easy to navigate around, they’ve put a lot of work into the site to make it easy to find products to suit different needs. For example -

* Search by criteria - if you want to buy fair trade, soil association organic, vegan etc then you can find products
* If you want to buy local - find all products made in the UK
* Have a particular ingredient/essential oil that suits your skin >> Search by ingredient

They usually have special offers and discounts and specially for people viewing this video if you use the Discount code: JANEY15 you’ll get a 15% discount off any purchase.

Janey Loves Nuique active and body skincare

This great company Nuique (pronounced New IQ) have a great range of products that work with sports injuries and massage, the packaging looks so 'medical'.   I couldn’t believe these were natural, but when my son had a skateboarding injury and his back was bruised and painful, one application of the Cooling Cream and he said it felt really cooling, the swelling went down and by the next morning just a faint bruise,

Emma from Nuique recommended that he use the massage oil after that as it contained Arnica and his bruisng went down really quickly so all round a brilliant test of a great product.
If you're interested in the ingredients -
* Cooling Cream:
Anti-inflammatory and emollient Shea butter, Jojoba, Apricot and soy bean oils.
Incredible cooling effects and stimulating active essential oils, Peppermint, Camphor, Menthol, Eucalyptus and Pine.   The botanicals used are the closest to the skins own natural oils so able to penetrate deep through the 3 layers of skin to the muscle fascia to begin healing.
Use on tired, weary limbs to speed up recovery and healing after a long day at work or post sport or injury. (Not on open wounds though.)

Joint & Muscle Gel:
Another medicine cabinet must have for all the family.
