Do you know these Neal’s Yard Remedies secrets?

Sunny in London friends, I want to tell you a few secrets about Neal’s Yard Remedies. Are you ready?

SECRET #1- A gift in a blue bottle from Neal’s Yard Remedies is better than a gift in a blue box from Tiffany’s.

This isn’t a sponsored post. I’m just legitimately obsessed.

My first Sunny in London post was about my love for Covent Garden that began nearly 15 years ago. Specifically, I’m in love with Neal’s Yard in Covent Garden. When I started my Instagram account, the first picture I posted was intentionally of this slice of heaven.


It’s a tricky, tiny “road” to find. I like it that way. When I arrive there, I feel like I arrived in the colourful Land of Oz!

If you aren’t familiar with Neal’s Yard Remedies, the Covent Garden location on Neal’s Yard was their first store.

The international company now has 40 stores across the UK.

Our vision was to bring the expertise of the apothecary and our holistic approach to health and beauty to local people and their communities.

SECRET #2- The distinctive features of the apothecary trade was the blue bottles filled with herbs and potions lining their shelves, and this is where Neal’s Yard Remedies found their inspiration for their brand and design.

I won’t echo the endless amount of beauty bloggers boasting about the benefits for you featured inside these bottles. The magical elixir in each natural and organic product (especially Wild Rose Beauty Balm!) isn’t the only reason I’m in love with Neal’s Yard Remedies.

SECRET #3-  You won’t find a company that works harder to interact with their customers/followers and to provide a positive experience. When they say, “What matters to us are people, their health, and their happiness”, they mean it.

The list of campaigns they support is extensive. From what I’ve seen on their Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram accounts, they make a HUGE effort to recognise individuals who mention their products. They had a contest last week in which I entered and was ridiculously hopeful.

I didn’t win. What I received was better. When I retweeted and replied with my enthusiasm, they responded with…

AND FOLLOWED ME BACK. It was better than winning.

I hope you find a basket of blue bottles under your Christmas tree and perhaps a spa gift certificate to the Neal’s Yard Beauty Spa on King’s Road. If you find a company that does a better job of creating brand loyalty, let me know, because I don’t think there is one.

    1. Thank you for reading and commenting, Sammy. I also can’t live without their Rejuvenating Frankincense Eye & Lip Serum. It’s not too expensive and works very well too. Let me know if you try any!

  1. Oooh, I have never tried out these products before but I’m a lover of Covent Garden too so I think I will try! I love your photos in this post – just lovely.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment, Mandy 🙂 They started a 12 Days of Christmas giveaway today that I saw on their Instagram and Pinterest accounts. Might be worth a look. Good luck!

  2. Neal’s Yard is amazing! Did you know they also have therapy rooms? When I was pregnant I discovered they do the most incredible massages. On Sundays they’re cheap too as it’s graduate day – even they were still better than any massage I’ve had anywhere. Love that place!

  3. I have only just discovered NealsYard. I’ve known of their products fir years but last Sunday I visited them as I’d had an accident just over a week ago ( broke my metetarsal) and it was suggested by a friend to go ). The salesgirl I saw was fantastic Not only did they have the herbs I wanted she recommended others and gave me some face cream samples which are to die for. I will definitely be going back and recommending their products and service. I really can’t speak highly enough of them. Also it’s such a ‘cute’ area !!

    1. Sorry to hear of your accident. I really, truly love the company for so many reasons. The samples are dangerous! They get you addicted fast :-). That’s why I discovered the Beauty Balm. 🙂
