Bought a few when on holiday in Scotland from a gift shop, and liked them so much I searched google images for the same make and found them!! Good size, 2 different textures and softness each side and wash well! Very happy.
All this sites soaps are top notch this lathers up great and is good for shaving and its all vegan an chemical free just what the body yearns for. Peace to all.🔵
Bought the black version. Looks good and is not too bulky - great as an extra layer under a coat. Nice that it's made of recycled plastic too.
Very comfortable relaxed fit T-shirt! The cotton feels soft. Quick delivery of product.
The material is thick enough that it doesn’t feel too flimsy and will last. Straps also sturdy enough without being too big to pack away. Overall impressed with the quality. Will be using as our nappy bag when we go travelling around Europe and this will be perfect.
Very friendly customer service and very good quality clothes. It was worth the money.
Very comfortable and high-quality, pockets are a bonus! My only gripe is that they are quite short on me (I'm 5'9")
I bought this hat for my husband and he’s really pleased with it. It’s super soft and fits nicely, he’s really pleased with it :)
Love this bra, so comfortable just what I was looking for. True to size and does not ride up. Washes really well and keeps its shape.
Love this bottle, so durable and great quality. I take mine to work with me everyday and then to the gym after. Will never need use a plastic bottle again!
Love this bra for everyday wear. So comfy, feels like you're not wearing anything! Which is what I love for everyday wear. Has washed well so far too.
Love the fit and feel of this bra, haven't seen anything else like it around. Great that you can remove the padding too, will be back to purchase the leggings to match soon.
