Dermasalve Review

Dermasalve is a range of products specifically designed bring relief to dry, flakey and itchy skin and to treat troublesome skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis.

The brand was developed by Dr Mark Randle, a GP with extensive dermatology experience. During his career he noted that many of his patients were finding that their moisturising creams were actually making their conditions worse, and research showed him that all the products currently available in the UK – whether over the counter or on prescription – contained at least one irritant.

This experience inspired Mark to develop his own natural skin care range, one that was free from alcohol,fragrances, parabens,lanolin and other harmful irritants, and with the help of leading Dermatologists from around the world Dermasalve was born.

Latest In Beauty Build Your Own Box

I had resisted placing an order for quite some time but when I saw the latest Build Your Own Box products a number of them caught my eye so I decided to take the plunge. I opted for the £18 ‘Beauty Guru’ box which allows you to choose 9 items. This works out at only £2 per item, which considering there are a number of full sized products to select from means it’s great value.

Lush Boxing Day Sale 2016

Oh dear LUSH. After actually thinking you had got your act together last year with an online Boxing Day Sale that went relatively smoothly, you lose the plot this year with a queuing system that was useless!

After 4 hours getting nowhere nearer to accessing your website I broke my ‘no going to the shops on Boxing Day’ rule and drove to the Bury store. The silly thing was that after a 40 minute drive there, a couple of hours shopping and a stop for a pint, and a 40 minute drive back, when I got home again I was no nearer the front of the queue than I was at 10am (slow hand clap). At 4pm when I finally got on the site only a handful of sale products were left and the site was still incredibly glitchy.

Never mind LUSH, fortunately for me and many other your tireless staff at the Bury store kept the show on the road where your woefully inadequate site let customers down, and I bagged some great bargains including the following:
