A month or so ago I was on Twitter at work (as always) and a photo from Bloom Remedies popped up of a Relaxing Bath Oil which I thought would be perfect for my Mum. I carried on working and then received a direct message on Twitter from Marie who owns Bloom Remedies asking if I would like to try one of their new Cornish Sea Salt Scrubs to review. I thought it was funny and we had a “Ooh that’s weird” moment when I told her I was actually on their website earlier in the day haha! I told her that I wanted to buy the oil & she kindly said she would send me a scrub in the same parcel so when it arrived just a few days later I was really excited! I gave my Mum the bath oil and couldn’t wait to try the salt scrub too.
Marie explained to me the different blends and their benefits so I could choose my favourite; “Relax” is a soothing de-stress blend of Geranium, Ylang, Sweet Orange, Patchouli and Cedarwood which are all known to soothe the nervous system & are deeply relaxing. Then we have “Restore” which is a blend for those in need of energising and strength with an immune supporting blend of Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Peppermint & Rosemary..how amazing does this sound for Winter colds?! I can just imagine getting into a nice warm shower/bath soaking myself in this & instantly feeling better. And then finally we have “Revive” which is the blend I am going to be reviewing today.
Revive is an uplifting and detoxifying blend of Ginger, Lemongrass, Cypress and Lime which are all mildly invigorating and Cypress & Ginger and both great detox oils and good for cellulite. Now that isn’t something that had ever really been an issue (lucky me!) however a few months after quitting Bootcamp and not going to the gym…I felt like this would be the best option for me and I am so glad I chose this blend. It’s been lovely to hold onto that little bit of Summer for a little while longer..
All of the salts are blended into a whipped base of organic shea butter, olive oil, coconut oil, mineral rich dead sea salts and Cornish sea salt. As with all of Bloom Remedies products, they use certified organic ingredients where available and even the Cornish Sea Salt has the Soil Association logo on it! The consistency of this scrub is perfect. There is enough shea butter and coconut oil to completely nourish and moisturise your skin but the salts are still rough enough to give you a thorough exfoliation. As you can see from the photo, the shea butter & coconut oil melt into your skin when you rub it in, meaning there’s no need to moisturise after using this. What I also like about this scrub is that because of the whipped texture, the salt doesn’t just “fall off” your skin, you really do scrub, scrub, scrub!
If you’re in the shower, simply wash away when you’re finished however this doubles up as a reviving bath soak…just apply to your skin whilst standing over the bath then sit in the water to remove. Ta dah!
Which blend would you choose?
