Teal Anchor All Over Body Scrub

I emailed Teal Anchor just before Christmas in 2016 to see if I would be able to review for them. I was very lucky as they said yes!

This caught my eye because I am trying to find products which are kinder to skin, less chemicals  and also kinder on the environment to make and not leave a lasting impact on the world.

Teal Anchor hand makes each product themselves, the scrubs are vegan friendly and also not tested on animals. Which is brilliant!

The ingredients are really simple to, which you can find over on their website.

So let’s get to the important what I think of the All over body scrub.

They sent me the Mint all over body scrub.

When I took it out the packaging I was pleased to see that it came in a lovely glass container and very few labels covering the jar too which is a bonus! You also get a small little wooden spoon to scoop the scrub out of the jar

.

When I opened it the first thing I noticed was the smell, it smelt totally amazing! Not over powering but actually smelt like Mint, Some products I have used in the past hardly smell of what they are meant to smell like, so this was great!

My  skin is  dry and I find many products dry my skin out even more, which isn’t good as it causes my skin to become itchy and sometimes sore. . I used this body scrub on a tiny bit of my body (arms!) first just to check I wouldn’t come out in a rash, no idea why I thought that as the scrub is 100% home made and has all natural ingredients in.

I first noticed that the scrub wasn’t as gritty as previous scrubs I have used in the past and it had a really nice feel to it. The scrub went on really nicely and I felt it just glided onto my skin. It needed very little rubbing in to get nice smooth skin, which with two children sometimes having a shower needs to be quick!  The Mint fragrance also lasted a very long time and my skin felt really soft and minty  for 12 hours!

I would say this scrub is good for all skin types as it doesn’t dry out the skin.

I would actually use this every day if I could but the recommend usage is twice a week. they currently have 11 more scrubs on sale and they have some really pretty Unicorn make up brushes that you can pre-order.

The scrubs start from £9, which to me is great value for a product which looks and smell’s totally amazing!

I really liked this body scrub oh wait who am I kidding I totally LOVE  the body scrub!  I will certainly be recommending this product to everyone I know.  Now which body scrub shall I try next?  The black pepper, Lavender or the Grapefruit one?!

Oh and they also have a Blog! So why not take a peek, lots of handy tips and some helpful information! Click here to see their blog.

Kind Natured Soothing Sea Salt and bergamot Bath Soak and Body Wash Review 

**I have not been asked by the company to write this review. **

Whilst browsing child free in Boots the other day I came across a product by a company called Kind Natured. 

The products are free from Sulphates, Parabens & Petrochemicals which is a good thing it means no nasties will be going onto your skin or into your hair. And it’s also good for the envioment. 

Kind Natured offer Hair care and bath care products. I brought the sea salt and bergamot bath Soak and the body wash. It smelt amazing, like being at the sea side. And I live the sea side.

When I used the bath Soak I used two small drops as I always do with using any product and there were quite a lot of bubbles, and it also made the bathroom smell lovely.

The bath was very relaxing and I read some of my book. The body wash has left my skin really soft and smooth, unlike the product I am using at the moment.i also only needed to use a small amount which is a bonus as the body wash will last much longer!

Even hubs had a bubble bath and said his skin feels smooth!!!

The price of the product was £2 99 from what I can remember.

Now when I pop to Boots next time I am certainly going to be buying the hair care products to see how they are on my very sensitive scalp.

Oh and did I mention they also do a children’s range too, now we know what the children will be getting from Santa don’t we?
