Welcome to first in a new series of posts about loving your skin. I have some great products I’ve been using coming up in the series. That have changed my skin for the better and made me more confident about going without makeup.
I was originally going to include this product in a post about a range of products my skin has been loving. But had so much to say about it, that I found it deserved a post all of its own.
If you read my 2016 Favourites, you’ll have seen that I love Dr Botanicals skincare. I tried a couple of face products they sent me for review for the first time last year and loved the effect they had on my skin.
(Previous product review here).
So, when they asked me if I’d like to try their Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose & Shea Butter Body Repairing Cream to see if I’d like to review it, I jumped at the chance.
Who are Dr Botanicals?
They are a British natural beauty company. Making cruelty-free and vegan skin and hair care products. From now and throughout February (2017) they are having a Moroccan Rose theme on their site with special offers to celebrate.
Registered with PETA and vegan certified, their products are also free of parabens and harmful preservatives. Using only natural ingredients.
The first thing I noticed when it arrived was that it was in a lovely and substantial glass jar. With a secure lid. I’ve dropped it a couple of times on the carpet and the bed. Not as a test, which would sound plausible, but out of pure clumsiness. The quality of the packaging is something I’ve noticed from this brand. They’re also recyclable and great quality.
The Amazing Scent
The second thing I noticed, and continue to notice after a weeks use, is the scent. It’s gorgeous!
The natural fragrance is just like it says; Rose and Shea butter. It lingers as you apply it but dissipates, so it’s not a strong fragrance throughout the day. Just a subtle scent that you can only really detect by putting your nose to your skin.
A Little Goes a Long Way…
The cream itself is thick and luxurious to use. It looks like yoghurt in the jar and is so thick it doesn’t move around inside the jar very easily. Which makes it great for clumsy people like me. As well as a joy to use.
A little goes a long way and soothes the skin straight away. Sinking into the skin really quickly. Making it great to apply before putting clothes on and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling to the skin.
After about a week of use, my thirsty and sensitive winter skin feels smooth and quenched. I could tell the difference after one use and now been applying before bed religiously and in the morning after a shower as a treat. It’s a great scent to go to bed with.
I was having to use a shower scrub daily for my dry skin. The cold weather and the heating being on doesn’t help and if you have ever had dry skin you may know how itchy it can be. But since using this, I’ve not had to use a body scrub once. Now my skin feels better than it did before.
You normally get 100ml for £89. Which at first glance is pricey. Making it a real treat and luxury to use.
However, like I said in my previous Dr Botanicals post and in this one, a little goes a long way.
They usually have offers on around Valentines, Christmas etc. So, it’s always worth popping onto their website to see what they’ve got going on.
After trying their products, I’m excited to buy their Pomegranate 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner and to buy more of the overnight treatment. As my skin has definitely benefited from using it and it’s nice to know what I’m using is all natural. As I’m trying to make my skincare more natural and have less to no chemicals in it.
