TreeBee 100% Beeswax Cosmetics & Bee Conservation Company-product

Hello and Welcome back to my blog, where I share my view on the world

Today I was lucky enough to stumble upon a wonderful cosmetic stall on Ormskirk Market in West Lancashire. It is my home town and im a regular visitor to the market, but I had never found this stall before.


I soon struck up a conversation with Abigail who is the Daughter of this amazing family, who live down the road from me in Burscough. She was so enthusiastic about the business, what it achieves and the good it does for the community and of course the bees, that I was keen to learn more and to share it with you.

The stall was a wash with gorgeous  smelling products, all 100% handmade and natural, made with the excess bees wax, made from bees that they have rescued. The company is a non profit community interest company and all the money that is made goes back to the preservation and rescue of bumble and honey bees. Which is very important as bee numbers are decreasing every year.

After chatting for a while, Abigail gave me a business card and I was soon onto Andy her Father asking how I could get involved and letting him know I love to write for this blog.

He very kindly gifted me three pots of hand cream, to test and review, so I can share my experiences with you.

I received a 30ml pot of Beeswax & May Chang Hand Cream, a 30ml pot of Beeswax & Lavender and lastly a 30ml pot of Beeswax & Geranium – all of which retail at only £5 each, what a bargain

Beeswax and May Chang = £5.00

Beeswax and Lavender= £5.00

Beeswax and Geranium- £5.00

you can see the full range here-

The small round , tin pots are perfect for travel, handbag size or pop them into the glove box of your car, for hand care on the go.

The tins have a screw top lid, which makes it easy to get into and easy to keep clean, no mess in your bag and no bursting tubes of cream everywhere. The bees wax makes the hand cream a solid block, so no accidental spills or overflow and the look is 100% Natural and handmade, no factory mass produced items here.

The smell of the cream is delicate and light, not overpowering or sickly , with only natural smells and no traces of chemicals. Its always nice to know what is going onto your skin and with these products not only are you doing your skin good your are benefiting the environment as well. Double Whammy.

The hand cream was easy to apply and smoothed into my skin easily, leaving my hands feeling instantly hydrated and superbly nourished, which is something considering they are often in water, out in all weather’s as I always forget or loose my gloves and get chapped and dry very quickly.

Because the main ingredient is Bees Wax, the cream doesn’t disappear instantly into the skin, making you feel you need to apply more, but instead it forms a perfect natural barrier on the skin continuing to protect and nourish, making my skin feel smooth and not tight.

I have placed one in my handbag , one in my car and gifted my Mum with the third one, she chose the May Chang as she said she had never smelt it before. She is 83 and says her hands feel youthful once again. Bless Her.

You know I only recommend items and products I have actually tried, and I can honestly say that these are lovely, get them as a little gift for someone, or treat yourself. At £5 each they wont break the bank and you will have helped to save a future bee hive.

Thanks for taking the time to read my little posts, and don’t forget to subscribe to make sure you don’t miss the next post.

Take care

Pharmaton Vitality Capsules-Licensed Medicine product review-sandraviews #add

Hello and Welcome back to my blogger page, where I share products I have tried and loved and articles I am passionate about.

This product review is for Pharmaton Vitality Capsules.

My packet of Pharmaton Vitality Capsules was sent to me to try out ,so that I could give you an honest report of what I think of it and how I have got on using it. The pack is for 30 days and you take one tablet per day. The tablets are easy to swallow and leave no nasty herbal type after taste. In fact they don’t have a taste at all.

Pharmaton Vitality Capsules is a unique multivitamin with minerals and Ginseng G155 which acts as a boost to vitality and helps you to feel better, be more alert and less tired and have the added bonus of making your feel fuller longer , so you will eat less . It’s ingredients are Gluten Free and do not contain any Nut Products so are safe to use if you have allergies.

I have been using the tablets once a day for 7 days now and I can honestly say that I am very pleased with the way it has reacted with my body. I suffer from constant tiredness, I think it is a combination of such a lot of things going on in my life, what with work, my mum being in the nursing home with Alzheimer’s and trying to juggle a work life balance. Its something that we all have to do and it sometimes catches up with you, leaving you feeling drained and lacking in energy. Since using the tablets i have noticed that i am not as tired at the end of the day, before i could happily go to bed very early, sometimes as early as 8pm and wake many times through the night, so when i wake i was feeling just as exhausted  as when i went to bed. Since using Pharmaton Vitality Capsules every day, i have much more energy, i am less tired and feel refreshed in the morning. Which to be honest i didn’t think would happen as quickly as it did, but from the onset of taking these caplets, i have noticed a massive difference .

A big benefit of taking Pharmaton Vitality Capsules has been the fact that i have not felt hungry and i am eating smaller portions on my plate, feeling fuller and more satisfied with what i am eating and not craving sweet things as much. I can even get through the children’s snack time, without having to sample as i go, which for me, has to be a good thing.

I will continue to use them and follow a healthy diet and see how i get along. I think the benefits of feeling less tired, having more energy and feeling less bloated and hungry are all benefits we could do with having more off.

. I can highly recommend  them and will continue to use them myself, as the health benefits they have given me are a major plus in my life right now.

Wilaniko’s Moringa Oil- Product Review#ads-SandraViews

Hello and Welcome back to my site, where I share my ideas and thoughts about products I have either bought myself or been sent to review. And subjects I feel are close to my heart.


I was recently sent a bottle of Wikaniko’s Moringa Oil to test out and review for you. It came in a good sized 100ml pump top bottle, which is easy to dispense and keep clean.

Moringa oil is a 100% natural oil , which is renowned for its natural properties. Wikaniko’s Moringa Oil is organically farmed in Spain and unlike some other manufacturers of the oil, they only use the leaf from the plant and not the whole bush, sticks and fly’s included. Wikaniko’s Oil is 100% pure and has been Vegan Certified.


Moriga Oil is known for its Anti Aging properties and is used by Cosmetic industries and added in small quantities to their face creams, with Wikaniko’s Moringa Oil you are getting the full oil and not a small amount. So that has to be a better product for your skin and is not as expensive as some of the branded products.

As its a Cold Pressed oil, you only need a small amount, it goes on easily and absorbs into your skin well. My skin is left feeling instantly hydrated and It feels plumper and smoother and more nourished. My laughter lines wrinkles are a big concern and are very deep, as I am always screwing up my eyes in bright day light and I like to laugh a lot, which is not a bad thing, but not good for my wrinkles,  after using moringa oil for a few days I felt that they where smoother to the touch and not a prominent.  The smell is very slightly herbal, I can only detect a very faint smell and it is not an unpleasant herbal smell, more of a refreshing smell. The oil will last a long time and has a long shelf life, mine has until 2019, so it is very economical to use. You could even use this oil as a salad dressing, but it would be a bit expensive to do that

The oil is also extremely good for skin conditions such as Eczema, severe dry skin, and other skin conditions as well as an anti-aging oil. My sister in law, suffers from Eczema on her elbows and I gave her some to try and to see if it would work on her itchy dry skin. She was very impressed with how well it was absorbed into her skin and later that day she texted me to say that it had worked wonders and she hadn’t noticed her itchy elbows for the rest of the day. I gave her the website and a code to use MOR10 which will give both her and you a discount up to the 31 March 2017. So hurry , don’t miss out  on this great product.

here is the direct contact  details to take you straight to the site –

I can highly recommend Wikaniko’s Moringa Oil, and I will continue to use it twice a day on my face, neck and decollate, I even put it on the back of my hands, its so hydrating and nourishing, it would be silly to not use it on every area where my age is starting to show. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy and my make-up sits nicely over the top. I use a little more at night so it can sink into my skin while I sleep and its benefits are staring me in the face in the morning. I have tried many face and body oils over time and I can honestly say that this is up there as a top favourite for me. One that, when this gifted bottle runs out, I will be going to the website to buy again. You can not buy this product from over the counter or Amazon so go to to get your own bottle and don’t forget the code MOR10 to get a reduced discount while it is available.

If you have any questions regarding this oil and how I have used it, what I feel about it or how you feel about it when you have used it, let me know. I love to hear your thoughts on products you have used as well. So comment bellow , I always reply to every comment I receive.

This product was gifted to me to review for you. I have not been paid to review it and I am not sponsored but as it is a review using a gifted product  I am declaring it to you. I am honest about my reviews, so you are happy and secure in the belief that I feel the product is a good one for you to try out yourself.

Anxiety the word doesn’t sound that bad-How I got mine under control and you can to -sandraviews

Hello and Welcome back to my Blog page sandraviews ,in which I share my own view on the World.

Today I wanted to talk to you about a subject that I am hearing about more and more these days, it has affected me in the past and still does on occasion and it has affected my family and friends.

Anxiety- the word its self doesn’t sound that serious , but if you are the person who is suffering the Anxiety attack or Panic attack as some people refer to it as, I can assure you it is very serious.

It is a feeling of overwhelming fear, being completely out of control of the situation and a fear of the unknown. It makes you physically ill and unable to carry out everyday normal duties. It stops you from eating or sleeping, makes you not wish or to be unable to socialise and even in extreme cases makes you unable to leave the house. It is all consuming. To the point that it takes over your every thought and action.

There are medications you can take that do help, but I feel that a more organic solution is required to keep it under control and to put things into perspective.

When I have had bad episodes of Anxiety and Panic attacks In the past, I have talked it through with Family and  Good Friends, friends who I still have today, they stuck by me and listened, tried to help as best they could and never ridiculed me . Not everyone understands and the” get a grip”, conversations help nobody.

Secondly I have taken physical action to override my Anxiety,

I personally took to walking, I would walk and walk until I felt calm. While I was walking, rather than think about what was bothering me I would try and take in the nature I had previously passed by and enjoy it. I would look at the wildlife and farm animals, the woods and the wild flowers and soak up their energy. Now I know you think this sounds all a bit Hippy, but it is amazing how calming it is and having that bit of time everyday just to walk and think, look and enjoy, gave me chance to recover.

The other thing and the one I would like to share with you today , is the one that no matter where you live, what your physical state is or your area of living, is the one thing you can do straight away to take back action.

This one thing will give you the power to control your Anxiety, to put it in the box it needs to go into and to rationalise why you feel the way you do. Nobody can do that for you. You need to take action to do it yourself.

What is this Magic thing?


that’s it very simple Write.

Write… I cant say it enough, if you write you physically put on paper the ideas that come into your head, it helps you to see in words what is bothering you, how you feel and what it is doing to your life.

This can start with a simple list, write down in one list everything that you feel has gone wrong, everything you fear, everything you would like to change, you get the idea. Then you can physically see it.

The next step is to write about each section in as much detail as possible, see if you can write down the worst you think it could be and where you actually are now. That way you will see that you are actually and probably a million miles away from your worst fear.

Now I know I write a blog and share things on here, but opening your worst and very personal feelings to the world is not something you are probably not  going to jump up and down with joy at the prospect for doing. So I suggest you just write just for You now and not to share with anyone else. Keep it as a private extension of your everyday being, your thoughts as they happen, your wishes for the future and how you are going to take back control over your life, and you will, trust me , you will. And to help you do this , I am going to say here and now , if I can help , let me know, I might not know the answer, but ask anyway.

I write this blog, about many things to do with family, getting older, health, you name it and im on it. Now I know that writing a blog and sharing it with the World is not everyone cup of tea, in fact it would probably cause Anxiety for some people. I on the other hand feel that if something I write, puts it in perspective for me and helps someone else do the same thing along the way, then it is worth doing.

So if you feel you can, start to write a blog, there are plenty of YouTube and Google articles that will help you to start one up. It really isn’t that hard to do.

To get you started I would suggest you maybe keep a diary, where you write in everyday, write about how you feel that day, what are you hoping to achieve and set yourself a goal, even if it is just to cut the grass or sit in the garden and read a chapter of a book. Or even to just get out of bed that day. What ever it is and what ever stage you are at , it doesn’t matter

By writing it down you have acknowledged it and as such you have started your recovery. You are on that first step back to normality. You can do this.

You could use a Diary as I have said, or write on a safe private page on your computer, put sheets into a clip folder, it doesn’t really matter. Just do it and do it every day.

You will start to notice , that as the days and weeks go by, you will be writing more and other things will start to happen in your life. It will take time , but you will start to gain back some control over your life once more and start to get better. It took me a year of walking to fully feel back in control, on the plus side I lost 4 stone as well.

As you get into your writing you may feel, like me, that what you are learning about yourself and your anxiety and how you are coping , may in fact help someone else. So then I suggest you start a blog or  you could even write a book about your journey and publish it on Amazon. You don’t have to have certificates behind you to do good in this World, sometimes you have to experience these things to truly see the wood for the trees.

The whole part of Anxiety is the feeling of being out of control, so by doing this one small thing, you are taking back control. Whats the worst that could happen? you will have a book that is full of your ideas and thoughts, feelings and ideas, how can that be a bad thing?

So come on . Take Action , do it now, grab a book and a pen, don’t think about what to write, nobody is judging you on content , grammar or spelling ( thank goodness for auto correct I say). In fact nobody is going to see this except you. So give it a go.

Let me know how you get on. I am interested to hear your ideas on how you are managing your Anxiety, you might even be able to help me.

Good Luck, please subscribe to receive  more posts like this and on lots of other subjects as well. Share it across your Social Media, every little helps to spread the word. Take Care

What’s New about Pro-Aging?

Hello Ladies, and Welcome to my latest blog post here at

I would like to chat to you today about Pro-Aging as against Anti-Aging, what is the difference ? and does it matter what they call it?

For years women have tried to turn back the clock to an earlier time in their lives, a time when they believed they where more beautiful. A younger time, when they where in their 20’s or 30’s and their skin, eyes and hair where brighter and firmer. Or so they thought.

Ladies I have news for you there is no more beautiful time than right here, right where you are standing now.

For years we have had to disguise and hide our natural ageing, and if we didn’t people would say ” she has let herself go”. The pressure to try and maintain that youthful look we once had is costing us thousands and making the cosmetic surgeons and the cosmetic industry as a whole a fortune.

When you are in your 50’s and above you should give out a sigh of relief. No more monthly period spots, or over greasy skin and hair. It wasn’t all rosé and bright, there was probably things you didn’t like about yourself then as well.

We are pressured into believing we should fit into a certain box, to get on in our jobs, please our other half’s, or get noticed.

Pro-Aging is about taking away that pressure of trying to be something we are not, that trying to have the perfect look we had in our early years. Now as women who have lived our lives, we can rejoice in the fact that we have survived the Ex’s, gone through the bringing up the children stage and should be happy that now we can finally spend some time on us. We have worked hard so we deserve it.

Pro-aging is all about being healthy on the inside so we can glow on the outside, wearing what we like and not what we think everyone else will like, having the confidence to do what makes us happy. And that has to be a Beautiful thing on its own. Right?

Our skin and hair and body as a whole changes as we get into our 50’s and above. But it was changing when we where in our 20’s and 30’s as well, we started to age from the day we where born. Its an on-going thing, nothing new there.

Our skincare should now be centred on Moisturising and nourishing our skin, giving it all the moisture it needs. Moisturising creams may be to heavy now, so look towards the Oils that are available on the market. My skin drinks it in.

Our cosmetics should now be about finding something that matches your skin colour and type, rather than trying to cover up wrinkles and lines. Or as I call them (my life laughter lines, cos iv lived a bit lol) We want products that enrich our skin and give it some LOVE.

Supporting the Pro-aging era are some stunningly beautiful women who are all in their 50’s or above. Celebrities such as Twiggy, Helen Mirren and Joanna Lumley.

Its about making choices that make you feel great and be happy. So Ladies come on and join the pro-age celebrations, its all about loving life, improving your health and skin from the inside out and learning to do what makes you happy. Being happy makes you smile and a women who smiles is Beautiful.

The Glass isn’t Half Empty it’s Half Full and im going to enjoy my life to the full and embrace every bit of it, come on and join me.
