When I came across this company I instantly warmed to them, I mooned over the site loving what they stood for, how they make their product and the sound of all of the yummy smells. So when Jo at BUFF Natural Body Care UK and I started chatting I was thrilled when she said she would send me some of the 60 ml jars of her delicious scrubs.
Jo sent me each blend and I have to say they are some of the best smells I have come across in cosmetics. I really like the whole ethos behind the company, using natural ingredients while being kind to the environment.
They have a conservation project whereby they donate 2% of their profits to the Marine Conservation Society UK, they are also are passionate about preventing plastic pollution. Which if you don’t know about you should know, plastic poisons and kills marine life, get to know all about it here on BUFF’s website.
Back to the product, beautifully packaged in environmentally friendly materials, when these babies turned up on my doorstep via the lovely postman I was beyond excited. They were so carefully wrapped, Jo wanted to make sure they were delivered the right way up so the scrub hadn’t got onto the lid and look messy, which I totally understand. I’m a sucker for good aesthetics in a brand, it shows how much love and attention has been put into the final outcome. With a beautiful hand written note, which I read over a cuppa, I started to get the scrubs out.
Like I said the packaging was gorgeous, I wanted to jump in the shower straight away to crack one of these babies open! Prices range from £8.00 to £45.00. All of the scrubs (because they are au naturel) can separate when they are warm, just give them a stir and pop them in the fridge to firm up!
This blend is the first one I used that night, made from hand harvested Sea Salt, Certified Organic Coconut Oil, Grapeseed & Vitamin E Oils with an exotic blend of Bergamot, Ginger, Palma Rosa, Patchouli and Sandalwood. The ginger was invigorating, I really like ginger so plus point for me. Also Sandalwood is one of my fave smells and my skin loves it. I had been working all day hunched over a desk so the oils and Palma Rosa really calmed my skin down. Fun fact from BUFF Ginger Oil is known as the ‘Oil of Empowerment’
Oh by the way, the website is so good, I love those little insights at the end of the description of the blends.
A couple of days later I used UP and I was so tired when I eventually got out of bed, that didn’t last long. This gentle scrub is made from hand harvested Sea Salt, Certified Organic Coconut Oil, Grapeseed & Vitamin E Oils with an uplifting blend of Oils of Lemon Eucalyptus, Spearmint, Rosemary and Cedarwood. The smell of this blend really wakes you up, the spearmint clears the cobwebs off of you and the lemon eucalyptus is something I had never used before in a cosmetics product, it was lovely.
This post workout scrub, is everything you want after you have been slogging your guts out in the gym. It is made from hand harvested Sea Salt, Certified Organic Coconut Oil, Grapeseed & Vitamin E Oils with a refreshing blend of Cypress, Juniper Berry, Lavender and Cedarwood. The juniper oil in this is heavenly, it made my skin feel really clean and almost like a detox for my pores! I always use a back scrubber so I popped some of this scrub on there and really worked my back with it, try and get some circulation going and reduce those sore muscles!
Let me just begin by saying, I have never seen a romantic couples scrub, BUFF call it the Lovers Blend and it lives up to it’s name. Saying that don’t let not having a partner put you off using it, get some one on one time with this beauty. A blend of harvested Sea Salt, Certified Organic Coconut Oil, Grapeseed & Vitamin E Oils with a sensual blend of Clary Sage, Rosewood, Ylang Ylang and Sandalwood. The sage and rosewood are smells that make me feel sexy, I know, what? But they are so woody and earthy, stripped back smells. What’s not sexy about that? Get some in your life…
I’m not preggers or a mama but that didn’t stop me sniffing the life out of this so I had to try it, the blend is a divine creation of hand harvested Sea Salt, Certified Organic Coconut Oil, Grapeseed & Vitamin E Oils with a revitalizing and comforting blend of Mandarin, Lavender and Frankincense Safe for use from second trimester & whilst breast feeding. It’s gorgeous and super relaxing, the mandarin oils are going to guarantee a good night sleep. I am going to gift the rest of this to one of my best friends who has just had her first baby, think she could use the peaceful night sleep. She won’t mind the big spoonful missing, she shares pizza with me, that’s true love right there.
I hope you enjoyed this post, these products were sent to me free of charge by Jo and her lovely team at BUFF but all opinions are my own and are 100% honest as ever with any product review I do.
I love this company and their super BUFF smelling scrubs. Let me know if you have tried them or what your thoughts on natural cosmetics are. As ever, leave me some juicy comments, I love reading ’em…
