I love a good pamper and today I have found a fantastic combination, that leaves your skin feeling totally cared for. It was just what I needed after the busy weekend i’ve just had camping with friends!
For me a good pamper session must include fantastic scents, indulgent textures and nourishing formulas and these products really tick all the boxes, feeding the skin with incredible natural ingredients and stimulating the senses with invigorating, uplifting fragrances.
The first product is the Bean Body Coconut Coffee Body Scrub (220g, RRP £14.95)*, an organic Coffee Scrub with Robusta Coffee Beans, Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil, Himalayan pink rock salt, Demerara Sugar, Organic Cacao and Vitamin E oil. 100% natural, the formula is vegan friendly, cruelty free and paraben free. The scrub is also Rainforest Alliance Certified so you can be sure that the farms and forests where the cocoa and coffee beans are grown are managed according to rigorous environmental, social and economic criteria designed to conserve wildlife; safeguard soils and waterways; protect workers, and improves local communities.
Coffee scrubs have really become popular recently thank to their toning effect. The caffeine in them stimulates blood flow, thereby helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite, eczema, stretch marks, age spots, varicose veins and psoriasis, and it really leaves the skin looking brighter and feeling firmer. Bean Body scrubs also feature Demerara Sugar and Himalayan Salt to provide a through yet gentle exfoliation, removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores, an action which can really help improve acne, blackheads, and other skin blemishes. Coconut Oil also provides fantastic hydration, while Cocoa and Vitamin E nourish and protect the skin, promoting cell repair and rejuvenation.
While many body scrubs simply exfoliate the skin this scrub does so much more, really improving the skin tone and texture, nourishing and moisturising. Yes, the coffee grounds make the process a little messy but the reward of brighter, tighter and clearer skin is well worth it!
After such an amazing exfoliation you’ll want to follow it up with an equally uplifting body lotion to seal in moisture as I did. The Cowshed Wild Cow Invigorating Body Lotion (300ml, RRP £20)* is the perfect choice. With a mix of energising Lemongrass, invigorating Ginger and reviving Rosemary essential oils, this non-sticky lotion will continue where the scrub left off, leaving your skin glowing and giving your senses a real boost.
This all natural body lotion features finest quality Shea and Cocoa Butters which help to moisturise and nourish the skin and the texture is highly nourishing yet still manages to be light and easily absorbed. The warm, zesty and slightly herby scent from the blend of Lemongrass, Ginger and Rosemary is gorgeous and really uplifting.
These products make the perfect pairing with their uplifting and stimulating effect. Both are incredibly hardworking yet gentle, and so very effective. If you’ve got a wedding, holiday or special occasion coming up and want to get your skin in peak condition these two products are all you need.
You can buy the Bean Body Scrub and Cowshed Wild Cow Body Lotion from the Libbie Club, and if you spend £20 or more on any body care you can save £5 with code BATH5, so what are you waiting for? Your skin really will thank you!
