  • Meet the Makers of our Christmas Windows


    If you pass a Cowshed spa you'll see our Christmas windows have been revealed. This year they are a celebration of the fruits and flowers to be found in a traditional British hedgerow - a nod to our roots in the Somerset countryside and a reflection of this year's gift collection, designed by botanical illustrator Katie Scott. We spoke to the duo behind the windows, Anna and Grace of @anna.gracestudio to find out how they drew inspiration from our botanical ingredients and why it was important to them to make a sustainable display.

In case you missed it, here's a round up.

    Q. What’s the difference between cream, oil and gel-based cleansers and what one should I use?
    A. Cream (or ‘milk’ cleansers are really gentle and advised for dry, sensitive skin. They don’t get foamy. Gel, as the name suggests, is of a thicker consistency and better for normal/combination skin. Oil based are not everyone’s cup of tea because they can take longer to remove, but they really work: they get into every crevice and leave skin feeling really hydrated.
