It’s a new day, a new start to the week and I always try to start my weeks by setting mini goals, and most importantly realistic goals. And my goal for this week is to make more time for me, more time for writing, organising, running and of course my favourite, more bath times! And recently I’ve been having the most luxurious bath times with a little help from Fifth Sense in Modbury. Fifth Sense is an eclectic gift shop based in Modbury, in Devon, which happens to be run by two of my lovely friends, Neill and Iggy. They sell a wonderful range of items including gifts, clothing, home fragrances and our favourite purchase from them over lockdown, Annie Sloan paint! Over lockdown Neill and Iggy set up their online store, alongside their shop, which has so many treats and goodies available for UK delivery.
A few weeks ago they kindly sent me a lovely care hamper filled with so many wonderful items from their shop with no obligations to post, just for me to enjoy. However as I loved all the products so much and they have such a lovely small business I couldn’t help but focus a whole blog post on them! So what did I receive?
First up from the Fifth Sense bathroom Deli, these beautiful handmade soaps, with no plastic packaging and made from all natural products they are a must have at home. My favourite has to be the Natural Loofah, Peppermint and herb soap, I love how great it is at massaging and exfoliating the skin! And it smells amazing, and is such good value. I also received a few more soaps, some of which I’m yet to try but they smell incredible! Including the chamomile and lemon, banana and coconut and green tea. So many to choose from and they last so well too! And to keep your soap safe and mess free they also sent me a ceramic hand made soap dish, it has a real rustic and natural look, with holes to drain off the soaps moisture.
Their bathroom deli has so much to offer including my favourite products they sent me, their bath bombs! The rose petal one was divine, our whole bathroom smelt so beautiful and it was just the most relaxing bath. They also sent me their Margarita bath bomb pack, with so many wonderful cocktail smelling bath bombs, that just added that little extra luxury to my self care time! I’ve also still got a couple left to try which I can’t wait for, again very reasonably priced and made with natural ingredients. Talking of all natural, their bathroom deli has so many vegan and environmentally friendly products, including bamboo toothbrushes, shampoo bars, and face masks!
The face mask I was kindly sent was the Ancient fullers earth mask, I loved this one as it was so much more than any mask I’ve tried before! Firstly you make it up yourself, mixing a couple of teaspoons with water and making the paste, then apply and feel wonderful! My skin felt so refreshed after and it’s a product I’ll definitely be treating myself to again! They have a few different ones online including their green clay and pink clay mask.
With this years lockdown due to Covid 19 I think we’ve definitely all become very attentive over how much we wash our hands, and if you’re looking for an on the go solution then Fifth Sense have that too. Stocking a range of fragranced hand sanitisers for on the go. Made with essential oils and 75% alcohol this is a great product for on the go with 10% of profits from these going to NHS Hero’s. Although washing your hands thoroughly and regularly is best it’s great to have something for on the go. As well as sanitisers Fifth Sense now stock a range of adults and children’s face masks, that you can purchase in store and online.
Bath time wouldn’t be complete without the perfect lighting and you all know me, I love a candle, and what I love more is a smelly candle! The winter berry soy wax candle and the Pinot Grigio candle smelt amazing and have such good burn time of around 20 hours. Again amazing value for money from a small business. I also was so excited to try the wax melts! I’ve never tried wax melts before and now I love them, can’t go without in the evenings! I was sent the beautiful classic rose melts, along with a beautifully hand crafted wax burner and they are just perfection. The whole house smelt incredible and I can’t wait for the winter months to try out Fifth Sense festive wax melt selection! Also if you’re looking to treat yourself or treat someone to a wax melts gift they do a lovely soy wax melts gift set, all packaged wonderfully for the perfect treat for someone special!
Fifth sense stock so many incredible and wonderful products that I could honestly write pages and pages about! But I think it’s time you took a look yourself at what more they have to offer! Supporting small and local businesses is so important, more than ever right now, so many will have unfortunately not made it through the lockdown and being able to support my two lovely friends through buying and sharing their business is just a way I can help, and I feel so grateful that they kindly sent me an amazing array of products that I can share with you. If you’re local to Modbury or just passing through make sure you stop in and take a browse in store or if you’re not so local Fifth Sense has so so many amazing products online, including all of the ones mentioned in this post!
I will link their site below if you’d like to treat yourself or someone special and I’ll also link their Instagram if you’d like to share the love and like, comment and follow. Remember sharing costs nothing, and supporting small businesses is so important. After purchasing paint for up cycling through lockdown, Fifth Sense will now be my go to for all bath time purchases! Will you be treating yourself to some Monday me time?
