Anatomicals Don’t Just Clean It Woman, Scrub It Body Scrub

We always look forward to an Anatomicals product… so much fun and humour goes into the product and packaging, but sadly we were a little disappointed with this one. The results were ok, but when a product is called “don’t just clean it woman, scrub it” we expect a damn good scrubbing!!  In reality the scrubbiness (is that a word?!) is a little too gentle… no bad thing for sensitive skin, but not what we were expecting. We also expected a really vibrant grapefruit scent, but this seemed only lightly scented – it’s lovely, but not wow. Overall this would probably best serve as a daily exfoliating shower gel rather than a good overall scrub.

Original Source Lime Shower Gel

Original Source Lime Shower Gel

Zingy zingy zingy! If you need properly waking up or a boost after a long day then this shower gel gives you just that. This is a really popular product in the office and suits men and women of all ages. Lime has excellent cleansing properties as well as a fantastic scent, and Original Source have given us a fabulous product that they say contains 40 limes in each bottle. The gel is thick and gloopy, not at all runny as you find with some cheaper shower gels, which makes it feel quite indulgent.  It doesn’t dry skin out, though we would recommend a body lotion afterwards. The scent lingers lightly throughout the day – we’ve found it a good fragrance layering product with Penhaligon’s Extract of Limes and Jo Malone’s Lime Basil and Mandarin fragrances. An excellent value product that’ll suit all the family. Available from: Boots Superdrug Pin...
Betty Buff Strawberry Smash Sugar Scrub

Betty Buff Strawberry Smash Sugar Scrub

If you need a reminder of what the British Summer should be like, this is it! Betty Buff’s Strawberry Smash Sugar Scrub is oozing with lovely fresh strawberries, known for their gentle cleansing properties. The consistency is just as we like… sugary enough to scrub gently but thoroughly, yet gloopy enough to feel pampered and indulgent. A short shelf-life due to the super-fresh ingredients, but it won’t sit on the shelf because you’ll want to slather it on anyway! ——- March 2013: Since reviewing Betty Buff’s Sugar Scrub, we’re sad to hear that Betty Buff has ceased trading.
