This is super geeky, but I admit it, I love Holland and Barrett (who doesn’t love nuts & healthy beauty products all in one shop?). Going into their stores is always a fun whilst out shopping and I have been known to spend far too long browsing their aisles for healthy treats.
They have recently launched their ‘Good Life MOT’ – you can pop into their stores and see one of their team who will then run your through a little survey to discuss your needs, lifestyle, diet and recommend you some ways to tackle any issues such as tiredness, headaches or even tips on healthy snacks.
I filled out the survery online and was sent this package of goodies based on my results. After experimenting with the products I thought I’d let you know my thoughts!
It’s quite obvious from the products they sent me that I’m a very tired person; it’s one of my main annoyances and downfalls. I am constantly tired no matter how much sleep I get which must have been apparent from my answers as I was sent a couple of lavender products to help aid sleep.
The Miaroma Lavender Massage Oil and Essential Oil have joined my nighttime regime to help relax me. I add a few drops of the essential oil to my bath or on my duvet sheets to calm me right down, or manage to convince Andrew to give me a massage.
I am a nut fiend so I was happy to find almonds in the package. I try to snack on nuts as much as possible throughout the day instead of chocolate and biscuits as they keep me full and make me feel so much healthier, ha.
I was given two tubs of vitamins which I’ve researched thoroughly. Vitamin B-Complex helps your metabolism as well as reducing tiredness and fatigue (LOVE) and 1-lysine 1000mg are incredible if you’re run down; they help incredibly well with ulcers and also help improve hair, skin and nails. Now these would be incredible but I have a bit of a thing with swallowing pills and they are both hefty buggers which means I have to bite them in bits in order to swallow them. If anyone knows of any vitamins which are good for people who can’t swallow tablets – let me know!
Finally in the package was Dr Organic Vitamin E Pure Oil which I think was including as I suffer from eczema and dry skin. This can be used anywhere on the body and helps to soothe dry skin, as well as wrinkles, scars and stretch marks!

What are your favourite treats from Holland and Barrett? Do you suffer from tiredness and fatigue too?
