Guest Posting Granny #1

Bit of a special day here on Paperbacks & Postcards today; we've got a special guest poster, my Nan! I'll hand you over to her now...

Hello my name's Margaret, I'm Amy's Nan. I'm going to do a review of a few of the things we've been trying out recently. I feel as if I'm having an affair with the postman because of all the parcels we get, but I like getting new products as Amy asks me to try them out as well sometimes. Today I will be talking about the NEOM Bath Foam*, NEOM Reed Diffuser*, Area H2O shampoo* and the Ultradex Toothpaste*. I enjoy using all of Amy's products as I would never be able to afford to buy them myself.


NEOM Tranquility Bath Foam - £20


I love this bath foam, it's really nice. I use it to soak my feet in a few times a week and it does a really good job, it smells really nice and makes the water soft and bubbly. The scent also lingers for quite a long time on my skin and makes the skin really soft. It's a nice relaxing treat.

The only thing that could make this better for me would be a plastic bottle as I find it quite heavy and a bit dangerous when it gets wet, but then it wouldn't look as nice.

I would buy this again but only for special occasions, perhaps for a birthday or Christmas present.

NEOM Happiness Reed Diffuser - £35


We haven't had this too long but ever since it's been in our dining room it's smelt lovely every time I go in there. It was far too strong with all the reeds in though, 3 is perfect. I like the way that the Reed Diffuser is packaged, it looks nice and expensive (probably because it is quite expensive!), I love the thick frosted glass. The scent grows on you, it's quite difficult to explain it too - it's a bit floral but also quite fresh too, there's definitely a bit of lemon in there.

I probably wouldn't purchase this again as it's just too expensive for me at the moment, I would happily receive one as a gift though.

Area H2O Shampoo (Not photographed because Amy is a terrible photographer and forgot!) - £9.95
This is my favourite out of all the things I'm reviewing today. I've never used a shampoo like this one before and I've been very impressed with it, even my hairdresser remarked on how lovely it was to use. It works really well on my hair (thick, grey, short and wavy) and makes it so soft and manageable. The shampoo lathers up really well and you only have to use a tiny bit each time so it will last a long time, it was really easy to wash out too. It makes my hair nice and shiny and I don't need to use a conditioner afterwards.

I would definitely repurchase this, although I think it will last me a long time anyway.

Ultradex Toothpaste - £6.10

This toothpaste is supposed to whiten your teeth within 14 days and I have noticed a bit of a difference in mine since I started using it. The toothpaste is minty and tastes nice, it also leaves your breath smelling good for a long time. 

I prefer to use a toothpaste that is more of a gel consistency though and would probably not buy this again, £6.10 is quite expensive! I'd rather just buy whatever is on offer.


The house smells lovely because of the NEOM Reed Diffuser, I shall definitely buy the shampoo again as it's nice and you don't need to use a lot and my hair feels lovely and clean - no build-up or anything. I like the bubble bath very much because it smells really nice and makes the skin soft. The toothpaste is nice too, a bit expensive mind.

Thank you for taking the time for reading this review, hope I will be asked back again soon.

    1. Yeah it is so expensive, they are proper luxury products though so I guess you are paying for quality. Swings and roundabouts. xx
