• Five reasons our new bar soaps are the best

    soap2

    We've just added bar soaps to each of our signature moods, so whether you're a fan of our comforting Cosy blend or favour the bracing Awake, you can now add a matching soap to your routine. Here are a few reasons why our soaps are good for you (and the planet).

    Nourishing

    Let's start with a little myth-busting: in the past bar soaps have been seen as drying and irritating, leaving skin with a 'tight' feeling. That may have been the case with some, but because ours are made from pure vegetable oils to which we add generous amounts of vegetable-derived glycerine, they won't dry the skin out. And all the essential oils that make them smell delicious (the very same ones used in our shower gels and body lotions) will nourish your skin too.  To make sure the texture of the bar feels silky, our soaps are triple milled to ensure the mix is perfectly smooth and lathers up beautifully.

    A good gift

    One little bar can be used to wash your hands and as an alternative to shower gel, all while making a chic addition to your bathroom. You could even store them in a drawer and use them instead of scented drawer liners. For these reasons they make excellent gifts - think secret Santas, stocking fillers or a thank you present to a host for dinner.

    The best travelling companion

    Bar soaps are easy to travel with - you don't have to worry about them leaking all over your clothes, plus they're solid so you don't have to decant them into little 100ml bottles and put them in a liquids bag. Excellent!

    Eco-friendly

    Our soaps are made in England which means they have a lower carbon footprint and simply because they are a solid rather than a liquid product, significantly less water is involved in their production.

  • Introducing the Rejuvenate Facial

    rejuvenate

    To complement the three new additions to our Rejuvenate skincare collection, we've created a Rejuvenate facial which just launched in our spas. The treatment features the Pure Lift Max - an electrical current tool that works to tone and plump the skin to give a more radiant, glowing complexion. We asked Cowshed Educator Jess to explain how it works, what it feels like and the results you can expect.

    ‘The Pure Lift Max is quite different to microcurrent one wave technology - that works superficially on the surface of the skin while this uses patented three wave technology to stimulate muscle tissue on a deeper level. You get an instant, natural result – skin looks and feels more toned, fine lines are plumped up and you get a ‘glowy’ effect.

  • Get to know our new rejuvenating Day and Night Creams

    rejuvenate_model_shot

    As we get older, the condition of our skin changes. Mature skin can feel thinner, less dense as collagen production slows down. Fine lines and pigmentation can be caused by a combination of atmospheric pollution, domestic pollution (the chemicals in personal care and household cleaning products) and the skin's cells not renewing as quickly as they once did. It needs different things to function properly and look and feel its best - not 'younger' - just healthy and happy.

    We sat down with Oliya - Cowshed's Head of Product Development - to learn about two additions to our skincare range: Rejuvenate Day Cream and Rejuvenate Night Cream. From Copper to Malachite, mushrooms and moss, here's the lowdown on the science behind these super-powered ingredients and how they work with the skin to make a real difference.

  • Our New Replenishing Cleansing Balm

    If, like us, you hate taking off your make-up at the end of the day, allow us to introduce you to our Replenishing Cleansing Balm. This product feels so nurturing and luxurious it actually turns the tedious task of cleansing your face into a spa-like ritual. Here's everything you need to know about what's in it, plus the best way to use it (spoiler: with a muslin cloth).

    The balm-to-oil formulation deeply cleanses without drying the skin, melting away every trace of make-up (even mascara and liquid eyeliner), daily grime and pollutants, leaving you with a clean, glowing complexion. A comforting combination of natural oils gives it a beautifully silky texture and as it sinks in, skin is nourished, softened and lightly scented with Ylang Ylang, Geranium and Lavender essential oils.

  • Brush Up

    body_brush

    Body brushing is one of those things you always mean to do, but can easily forget in the rush and chaos of everyday life. But that’s one of the reasons you should try to incorporate just a few minutes of dry brushing into your daily routine, because quite apart from the benefits to your skin and circulation, it makes you slow down for a moment and make time for a little self-care, which is always a good thing.

  • Tom the Barber's Top Tips

    Head Barber at Ned’s Barbershop in Ned’s Club Spa Tom Harrigan was part of the team that developed Neville - our grooming range - and was also involved in its recent reboot. He told us why the three hair styling products in the range are best in class when it comes to natural grooming. 'We wanted three distinct products that offer very different things. The ingredients we've chosen - like Maca Root and beeswax - work as a a bit of a treatment for the hair, strengthening and styling at the same time, killing two birds with one stone. It’s not just about styling, it’s about closing down the hair cuticles, promoting shine.'

  • Neville, Refreshed

    neville1

    Neville, the men’s grooming range from Cowshed, has had a reboot. Tom Harrigan, Head Barber at Ned’s Barbershop in Ned’s Club Spa, worked on the original formulations and advised on the  refresh. He says never underestimate the mood-boosting potential of a traditional wet shave or a simple face scrub in the shower at home.

    I’ve worked as head barber and men’s grooming expert for Soho House for six years. Using super premium ingredients, the reformulated Neville range is our best yet. The design team have given the packaging a shake up too - we now have aluminium tubes that travel well and allow you to squish every last drop of product from the tube.'

  • Not-So-Clean Beauty

    Beauty trends seem to come and go quicker than the seasons, yet one practice has stood the test of time. From Ancient Greece and Egypt to Renaissance Italy and even today, seekers of beauty and health flock to sites of natural mud springs. This tradition of bathing in mud was favoured by Cleopatra, who was partial to a body wrap with mud from the Dead Sea (where else?)  If it’s good enough for a Pharaoh of unrivalled beauty, we think it’s worth a try.

    From beauty and wellness to medicine and yoga, the ancient Indian principles of Ayurveda are incredibly far-reaching. The translation of the word is “sacred knowledge of life”. At its core, Ayurveda is a holistic healing practice.
