This post brought to you by Tree Hut . All opinions are 100% mine.
Summer is approaching, and we all want to look our best. Besides working out and eating clean, firming body products are always a good idea! This is why today I want to tell you about two new product by Tree Hut, their Italian Mocha Firming Sugar Scrub and Italian Mocha Firming Body Lotion.
Both products come in a lovely forest green and brown packaging, both are very affordable (around $10 each), and they smell really nice. Tree Hut products are made in the USA, and are not tested on animals. I personally don’t drink coffee, bu even I like the scent, but my girlfriends who do love it, were head over heals about the scent.
So what else do you need to know about the products?
Italian Mocha Firming Sugar Scrub
Just wow, this is my personal favourite product from two. It is a sugar scrub with caffeine and coffee grounds, well known skin-firming ingredients. Besides those ingredients, you get the benefits of certified organic shea butter, Safflower Seed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Avocado Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil and Orange Oil.
This is why it exfoliates the skin properly, but at the same time doesn’t leave
Kind Natured, an affordable natural brand (it is promised that the products are free of Sulphates, Parabens and Petrochemicals; and are 97% natural in general) brought out two new lines recently, and I was kindly sent some products to try out.
Two new ranges are:
- Shea & Macadamia – described as deeply nourishing and formulated for very dry skin.
- Coconut & Monoi – described as moisturising and formulated for normal and dry skin
Each line has three products so far: Foaming Sugar Scrub (£5.99), Body Lotion (£5.99) and a Hand Cream (£4.99).
So what are my thoughts?
First of all, I think it was a clever idea to bring out the scented products at this time of year when we all are a bit tired of the cold months and crave the sun. Both lines have that sweet exotic scent, and make me personally think of a summer holiday and cocktails on the beach, they are like a summer-in-a-bottle. Although the
A lot of people have asked me for some body creams reviews as I have very dry skin. So this is why I will be writting about some body creams/balms/lotions that I love in the following few weeks.
We will start with Elemis Pro-Collagen Body Cream.
It is one of the most expensive creams (£49.00/$90 for 200 ml at Timetospa) I have used so I was expecting a lot from it. And it does stand up to what is promised!
So what is promised?
‘Designed with lattice technology to help restore surface cell cohesion, promote intercellular communication and reinforce skin’s natural moisturisation factor. Helps to smooth out crepey skin texture, deeply hydrates, improves skin contours. The result is a beautifully smooth, luminous and firmer looking body.’
Key ingredients: Pro-Collagen
I have posted about the new beauty purchases a month ago, and I am ready to share my impression about some of the products, starting with Yves Rocher Mango Coriander Energizing Body Lotion.
I am actually a big fan of the brand’s body lotions but they’ve changed the scents (and the formula?) a bit, and I really fell in love with the mango/coriander one.
For some reason a lot of people can’t stand coriander but I have nothing against it, at all. And combined with mango – it smells incredible. Energizing is a spot on name for this lotion, as coriander brings sharpness, freshness and spiciness to the otherwise sweet and juicy mango. I simply adore this fragrance, and I did get a
I’ve been promising this post for a long time already so here it is finally!
I have very dry and often flaky skin and I have tried a lot of body creams, and, in my opinion, this is probably the best one I’ve found so far. It works great for winter even for my skin type so, most likely, will work for you, too.
I am talking about Bioderma Atoderm PP Anti-Reccurence Emollient Balm.
This product was actually recommended to me at the shop by the sales assistant. She also recommended Oilatum bath products to me, so I am definitely going to try them in the future.
The great thing about Bioderma Atoderm PP Anti-Recidive Anti-Reccurence Emollient Balm Severe And Recurrent Cutaneous Dryness is that it can be used both on face and body.
So what about my impression?
