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.

Aura-Soma Pegasus No44 Florentine Iris

Pegasus is a range of eight fragrances from Aura-Soma and Creative Perfumers, inspired by Aura-Soma’s Equilibrium Colour Care System used by colour therapists and made using natural and organic essential oils. If you love all things natural and practice colour therapy or meditation then this range is absolutely perfect. ¬†And if you are not a fan of colour therapy or mediation it really doesn’t matter, this range is just as perfect for you too as you’ll discover true, well-balanced fragrances, similar in style to those of Penhaligon’s, Jo Malone and other top perfume houses who choose natural, not synthetic fragrance for their blends. The fragrances are amazing and Florentine Iris (No 44) is one of our favourites… If you love the scent of Parma Violets, or if you’re a fan of Penhaligon’s Violetta, you will love this… it is fantastically violet in every way with Orris Root, Cedarwood and Precious Woods completing the scent. It is distinctive and elegant with a hint of fun and calm. The colour combination relates directly to the Aura-Soma colour B44, known as ‘Guardian Angel’ which colour therapists and those who practice meditation can use to assist in the development of the whole being.

Betty Buff Morning Coffee Sugar Scrub

Betty Buff Morning Coffee Sugar Scrub

‘Morning Coffee’ is the first of Betty Buff’s sugar scrubs that we’ve tried and we weren’t disappointed! Nice big 250ml tubs of natural ingredients – perfect for sensitive or allergy-prone skin as Betty Buff products are completely free from colours, fragrance and strange ingredients we can’t spell let alone pronounce! Made in the UK too and with a commitment to buying British and Fairtrade. Easy to apply – simply scoop out of the jar and rub on to damp skin: the more water you use the smoother the scrub will be, for a really intense scrub use less water. Rinse off when you’re done. No matter how intense you get there’s no redness as you get with some of the grittier scrubs – if there is, go slower and calmer! Morning Coffee left skin feeling lovely and smooth – it’s perfectly balanced and doesn’t dry skin out like some scrubs and it’s not greasy like others where the goodness swims in so much oil that you have to wash it all off rather than rinse. This scrub is ideal for preparing your skin for summer and for fake tan. It was also a success with our male tester – he liked the coffee edge and was impressed that ‘real beans are in it!’. —— March 2013: Since reviewing Betty Buff’s Sugar Scrub, we’re sad to hear that Betty Buff has ceased trading.
