Weleda Birch Body Scrub Review

I love a good body scrub! I always have at least three different options on my bathroom shelve. And today I’d like to show you the one that I’ve been really loving this hot  summer season. It is Weleda’s Birch Body Scrub.

Weleda Birch Body Scrub ReviewI left some water drops on the tube but it doesn’t look as good (if good at all), as I would like it to…

Why do I like this scrub so much? Mostly because of the scent,  the brand says it is birch leaf extract and essential oils (rosemary?). And I’d say that it has an uplifting and invigorating aroma, fresh and clean scent – very unisex.  I don’t know what it is, but it is one of my favourites; the kind of fragrance that makes you want to

Linden Leaves Herbalist Sugar Salt Exfoliating Body Rub and Memories Body Oil Review and Photos

When I first heard about the Linden Leaves, a beautiful skincare range from New Zealand, I  really liked pretty much everything about the brand.

I loved the clean and sophisticated packaging,  the series that the products are divided into and the story behind the brand. Plus they also have two series for men – Pure Man and Rugby.

I also liked their website,  it gave me this idea of a natural and soothing skincare line. There are actually a lot of products to choose from so it was very hard. But I’ve decided to try the scrub from the Herbalist line which is called Sugar Salt Exfoliating Body Rub and the Memories Body Oil from the Aromatherapy Synergy range.

 Herbalist  Sugar Salt Exfoliating Body Rub, €23.53 (200g / 7.05 oz)

It’s great to have a sugar salt scrub as most are just sugar or salt, so now you don’t have to choose. The first thing that I’ve noticed about this  product – its unusual and rather strong scent. I can’t quite describe it but I’d say that Herbalist is a great name for this product.

The rub contains essential oil of basil (‘to stimulate circulation and invigorate’), clary sage (‘to ease muscular aches and relax and de-stress the mind‘), and evening primrose oil (‘to nourish and hydrate’).  Other ingredients are: jojoba oil and sweet almond oil (‘to moisturise and soothe inflamed skin’).

This is a really lovely product,  I find that it effectively but gently exfoliates my skin, leaving it smooth and ready for a moisturizer! It doesn’t hurt or damage the skin as it contains essential oils.  As for the scent, I don’t think that I’ve had anything with a similar one, but,luckily, I like it. I find it calming and relaxing!

Now this is a very unique product. Although
