The most amazing beauty find for under five pounds

Forget pricey body lotions. Is This Mutton? has found a product produced in England's Lake District which uses wool fat to produce an exceptionally moisturising product at very low cost.
I'm so excited to share with you a beauty find that's a real gem! When I was in the Lake District recently, I forgot to take a body lotion and my skin was becoming very dry. A general store in the tiny village of Patterdale had a bottle of the somewhat unprepossessingly named "Mitchell's Wool Fat Original Hand and Body Lotion."  I'd never heard of this brand but needs must, and it was as cheap as chips, so I bought it.

I've been staggered by how effective this product is! Forget all the expensive scented body creams and lotions - this one really does make your arms and legs feel smoother and more moisturised over time! You can buy it here. 240ml is only £5! My bottle - which you can see is well used and a bit battered - is a smaller size and cost even less.

Other products are available, including wool fat soap and shampoo.

The story is that Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap was first produced in the early 1930’s by Bradford chemist Fred Mitchell. He realised that the natural lanolin content of wool fat, which kept the hands of local sheep shearers and wool sorters so exceptionally soft, could also be beneficial to delicate complexions and sensitive skins. A simple and natural product, this soap is still made to Mr Mitchell’s original formula, based on a recipe from the turn of the century and incorporating lanolin from the wool fat as the key ingredient.

I love anything to do with sheep as you might guess from the blog title. Feta cheese, woolly jumpers, wool mattresses (I have a Herdy mattress)and now wool fat soap, so I'm a convert. And for this price, you'd be mad not to.
