WHAT MY CUSTOMERS SAY…

Really helped my psoriasis

I only ever order from Mellow Skincare ever since I discovered her range in early April 2014 and have been using them ever since, in particular the bath foam and body lotion. Wow! They are fantastic!

I have psoriasis and Carole made up a special anti-irritation formula for me. Here's my feedback given to Carole after she had asked if I'd used the products...

"I have and they are fabulous Carole. My skin wasn't irritated at all during or after my bath and the fragrance is amazing - smells like a beautiful big bag full of lemons. Body lotion absorbs easily, and does not dry out my skin or leave it red, sore or itchy. Love it, thank you Carole x"

Wholeheartedly recommend Mellow Skincare. Beautiful products.

Helped my soft nails

I suffered from soft, flaking and peeling nails and had tried numerous products and vitamins without success.

Within 4 weeks of using a special oil made by Mellow Skincare my nails had improved dramatically. Within 8 weeks my condition had completely cleared up and my nails are strong and healthy.

I wish I had known about Mellow sooner and can highly recommend products made by Carole Holmes as they actually work.

Never use anything else

I have been buying Mellow Skincare moisturiser for dry skin for many years, particularly the Rose Geranium fragrance.

It is easy to apply (wonderful consistency). I never use any other product on my face.

Mellow moisturiser for dry skin

“I loved the fragrance and found the lavender relaxing. The cream was easily applied and blended into the skin well. The cream left no greasy residue which can be found with some moisturisers. My skin felt lovely and soft and the moisturiser definitely hydrated my skin”.

Mellow Foot Cream

“I have been using the cream for the last 10 days, in the morning and in the evening. Wow , what a difference! My skin feels soft and has a lovely colour.


It is very easy to apply, not greasy at all and you won’t feel you are ice skating if you walk barefoot after having put the cream on.


The cream has a pleasant smell, no wonder given the fact that some of the ingredients are lavender, olive oil, almond oil, cocoa butter, peppermint and lemon. I am sure my clients would love having their feet massaged with Mellow foot cream and yes, I would definitely recommend it.”

Mellow Rose Geranium Hand & Body Lotion

“My first impression of the product was that I liked the very colourful label and it looked enticing. Using it as a body crème after showering, on a daily basis, I found it to be light and easily absorbed, and it would make a good daily lotion.


I loved that it was an all-natural fragrance. It kept my skin well hydrated throughout the day. My skin felt supple and comfortable and it didn’t leave any residue on clothes”.

Gardener’s Hand Butter

"I received the Gardener's Hand Butter as a gift, and I love it. The butter is very luxurious and smells amazing. I have really terrible super dry, sensitive skin, and the butter so rich and moisturising that I'm not just using it for my hands! Really pleased with it. My skin stays moisturised for longer, and is less itchy. Definitely recommend."
