With only a matter of weeks until we hit the slopes I’ve been on the look out for some awesome new products to try. After a bit of twitter banter the lovely Louise, founder of Natural Hero, offered to send me some products and being as accident-prone as I am I leapt at the chance.
Louise created Natural Hero after her own accident on the slopes in 2010 when she injured her shoulder after catching the tip of her skis. A couple of ibuprofen later and an application of a warming topical cream to comfort and ease the sting she came up with the idea of creating non-medicinal recovery treatments using active botanical ingredients.
I was sent both the Cool Peppermint Muscle Spritz and the Hot Ginger Muscle Rub to review. Louise recommended that I use the spritz on my lower back and quads before hitting the slopes and then the muscle rub once I get out of the shower to soothe my muscles. I will be writing a full review of each product once I’ve put them through their paces on the mountains, but on initial impressions I love the cool, quirky packaging (there’s a surfer on the barcode, how cool is that?!) and any product that tests on athletes rather than animals gets a thumbs up from me and a paws up from Cleo.
If you fancy purchasing either of the Natural Hero products you can find them in Snow and Rock.
Apologies for the really rubbish photos, I’m suffering from a severe lack of natural light at the moment!
