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 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!

In a world where it can feel stiflingly overwhelming at times, it’s often those small daily acts of kindness that can help us to restore our faith in humanity, and feel better about ourselves too. Whether it’s offering to do something for a stranger, or supporting those closest to you, kindness no matter how big or small shows a level of care, strength and concern for those around you that is almost always deeply appreciated.
I will never forget moments where people have been there for me in times of need. And the smallest gestures such as a cup of tea, or a simple message asking how you’re doing can mean the world and make all the difference to a dark day. Just the other day I had a panic attack on the tube. Whilst at the time it was terrifying and I was totally convinced I was dying, it was the kindness and strength of a stranger who helped me to finally steady my breath and calm down. And that is something I’ll never forget.
The one area where I feel many of us fall short however, is showing kindness to ourselves. It’s sometimes much easier and manageable to help those around us than to focus on our own wants and needs. But as my favourite saying goes ‘you cannot pour from an empty cup’ so taking time to be kind to yourself in my experience, allows you to then give kindness to others too whilst making you stronger in the process.
I am therefore so pleased to be working with softandgentleuk on their 66 days of kindness movement to celebrate the launch of their new Skin Protect Range. They suggest that kindness is a strength in itself and that it takes roughly 66 days to build a habit, therefore setting all of you including me the challenge to perform an act of kindness and then nominate three friends to get involved too.
So I’d love to hear your acts of kindness below, and would encourage you to get involved in the campaign. In my mind, the world would be a much happier place if we were all just a little bit kinder, so here is your motivation to get the ball rolling. #StrengthThroughKindness
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 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
AD | When it’s as hot as it has been, you need a deo that keeps you feeling great all day long - even if you’ve got sensitive ‘pits. For the longest time I’ve avoided aerosols as they cause irritation, sting and cause me to incessantly cough while applying, but the NEW softandgentleuk is a total game changer!
Designed specifically for sensitive or allergy prone skin and endorsed by the Skin Health Alliance, Soft & Gentle have combined fine fragrances containing ethically sourced essential oils with an added conditioning agent (of organic jojoba and coconut oil) to provide an anti-perspirant that smells great without being irritating.
It’s a completely different experience to what I’m used to, providing a super soft application that doesn’t get up my nose or irritate my super sensitive underarm skin.
PLUS they’re #veganfriendly, offer 48hr sweat and odour protection, and currently half price in BootsUK until 22nd October. At £1.24 you have no excuse not to give them a go yourself!
I’m obsessed with the Orange & White Ginger scent, but choose from Sheer Rose & Lavender, Ylang Ylang & Almond oil or Magnolia Flower & Geranium too… Which would you pick? (I’ve popped a link in my bio if you want to buy!) #StrengthThroughKindness #SoftAndGentle #SensitiveSkin
