At Soft & Gentle we’re on a mission: To start a kindness revolution in the UK
We believe that real strength comes from being kind – whether it’s helping a stranger on the bus or surprising a work colleague. Small changes can make a big difference. That’s why we’ve made the choice to combine skin kind ingredients and strong formulations in all of our products.
We know it takes 66 days to form a habit, so we’re encouraging you to take part in the 66 Days of Kindness Challenge to show just how effective kindness can be.
Why not be a little kinder, and stronger, for yourself and for others, from today?
To get involved in our 66 Days of Kindness Challenge, follow these three easy steps:
1. Do something kind for someone you love, or someone you’ve never even met before!
2. Share what you did and how it made you feel on social media tagging @softandgentleuk and #strengththroughkindness
3. Nominate three friends to get involved
It’s as easy as that and we promise you, it’ll be worth it!
AD| To be a kind person, is not only a choice, but also a privilege. I have always believed that being a good person, being someone who cares and puts other people first and who does little things to make a difference to someone else’s day whilst expecting nothing in return, shows real strength. It makes us selfless and opens us up to a much happier life.
There have been many occasions in my life where I’ve been shown kindness, particularly over the last few years when I’ve felt my weakest and really needed it. Unexpected surprises through the post, little messages of love and support, a shoulder to cry on when I didn’t even know I needed one... these are all examples of other people making a difference to me, through their acts of kindness.
Something you will also hear me regularly talk about on here, is remembering to be kind to ourselves. We only have one life, one body, one mind. And we have to protect them, be gentle and be mindful of the fact that if we don’t love ourselves, then how can we expect anyone else to? So if you need to hear this today, I’m telling you. You’re beautiful. You’re brave. And you’re strong. 💕
I am delighted to be working with softandgentleuk on their 66 days of kindness movement, to share with you an act that’s made me feel empowered and strong. I love sending and giving flowers to people when I feel like they need a little pick me up. But along with the beautiful blooms, I write. I recently took a friend some flowers along with a handwritten card reminding them why they’re wonderful and thanking them for their friendship. In that moment, it was the exact reminder that she needed. It costs absolutely nothing to tell someone how amazing they are doing so why not do that today?
We are celebrating the launch of the new Skin Protect range from Soft & Gentle which is kind to sensitive skin yet still an effective deodorant. The new movement suggests that it takes 66 days to change a habit and the #strengththroughkindness campaign encourages us all to think about an act of kindness you’ve shown and how you felt stronger for it. I nominate mothering_it big_fat_greekmother itslittlelauren to share ❤️ .
Kindness ALWAYS wins x
ad Strength through Kindness. You guys all know I’ve had to find a lot of strength recently to deal with what life has thrown my way. One thing I’ve always prided myself in is being kind to those around me and recent events have not stopped that. I’ve actually taken time out of my busy schedule to sit and chat with my sister, help a friend with his business and most importantly share little moments with the kids, just stopping even when we’re in a rush, to check in, make sure they’re ok and make time to listen to their worries. I’ve been working with softandgentleuk on their mission to start a kindness revolution through their Strength Through Kindness campaign, since their new skin protect products provide strong protection whilst being kind on the skin it’s an absolutely perfect ethos. Did you know that it takes 66 days to change a habit, so I’ve been checking in with a loved one on a daily basis for 10 days now and I’m going to keep going!! It’s making me feel great 😊️ What’s the last thing you did to show kindness to someone? And how did it make you feel? Who’s up for taking a 66 day kindness challenge? #StrengthThroughKindness
#ad I remember the days at school when I seemed to be the only girl who had sweat marks.. And we’re not just talking at P.E.
As a teenager I was totally embarrassed and would constantly try and hide under my school jumper!! Even on the hottest of days.. I’d use toilet roll under my arm pits and try and cover myself with ridiculous amounts of Charlie red, just incase🙈
That’s my embarrassing story, I can tell it now 15 years down the line but back then NOWAY!! As we get older and start to talk about our ‘little secrets’ shall we say. We find ways around them purely by opening up and when we do we can find a solution right?
New softandgentleuk is a game changer👀 It’s coming in my bag EVERYWHERE I go!!🎒
It PROVIDES 48HR PROTECTION✔️🙌🏼 #softandgentle is infused with organic oils and made with fine fragrances which contain ethically sourced essential oils and is suitable for #sensitiveskin!! Currently half price at Boots until the 22nd October👌🏼 #strengththroughkindness #vegan
It’s small act of kindness that not only make a huge difference, but show true strength 💫🙏🏻 Such a gorgeous evening last night with softandgentleuk celebrating small acts of kindness to the launch their new Skin Protect range. Specifically designed to be kind to delicate skin, using delicate ingredients that are infused with organic oils and fine fragrances, the range contains ethically sourced essential oils that are vegan friendly and accredited by the Skin Health Alliance.
Having struggled with allergies and sensitive skin all my life, it’s so great to see brands creating products with that in mind. Not to mention spreading the message of just how incredibly important it is to be kind - which is something I am so passionate about 🙏🏻💖 I would love to know how an act of kindness has changed your day in some way?
AD| ACTS OF KINDNESS |
As simple as it sounds, I genuinely believe that the world would be a better place if we were all just a little bit kinder to one another.
It could be as small as opening the door for someone, or an unexpected compliment or bunch of flowers. However you show kindness, it is almost always gratefully appreciated.
I’m lucky to have found myself a friend who gives kindness in abundance. It’s not only her job that requires a giving approach, whether that be in clinic with her clients, or with me where she is always a shoulder to cry on should I need it, but also within her nature to help everyone around her with her positive energy and thoughtfulness in everything she does.
As part of the softandgentleuk #StrengthThroughKindness campaign I wanted to share someone who has given me kindness, and to also nominate lucymountain, gynaegeek and charlielaunder to share their own stories of experiencing kindness too. 💙
#ad Suffering with sweating can impact your daily life and affect self-confidence, so I’m glad that softandgentleuk launched its new Skin Protect range which provides 48h sweat & odour protection.
The new range is made with fine fragrances containing ethically sourced essential oils and comes in four beautifully smelling scents! But it’s still suitable and safe for sensitive skin, with an accreditation from The Skin Health Alliance.
They launched in superdrug last weekend plus, they’re also currently half price at bootsuk until 22nd October so now is the time to stock up…like I did!
