I have to admit I’m pretty rubbish at looking after my skin. I go through a couple of weeks of being really good at moisturising and then forget for weeks. Luckily, I seem to get away with it and my skin doesn’t seem to suffer too much. However, since being pregnant I’ve noticed my skin has become really dry and flaky, especially on my legs, so I resolved to do something about it.
Whilst our shopping I noticed a at all in the middle of the shopping centre selling all sorts of lotions and potions. I don’t normally get sucked in to the demonstrations, but these really caught my eye. After a bit of bargaining and getting myself a cheeky discount, I treated myself!
The first product is the exfoliating salt scrub. This contains dead sea salt and minerals. First thing I loved was the smell – I went for the kiwi scent which was lush! At £45 it certainly isn’t cheap, and way more than I would usually spend on my skin, but worth every penny. You only need a tiny amount once or twice a week so the pot should last ages. It doesn’t feel greasy or oily, and you can really feel it doing the job when you massage it into your skin. It removes all the flaky and dead skin and encourages skin renewal.
Once you’ve rinsed it off and patted your skin dry, you rub in some of the shea nut body butter. Again, at £50 for the tub it isn’t cheap, but it leaves your skin feeling beautifully soft and smooth. You only need the smallest amount as it is soaks straight into your skin after exfoliating, and it doesn’t leave it feeling greasy, which is what I hate about moisturising. It is paraban free so no nasty chemicals and fine to use on sensitive skin.
I’ve used it about four times and my skin feels lovely. The softness lasts in between using it. All the flaky dry skin on my legs has disappeared and its even got rid of the hard skin on my feet. I will definitely be looking at buying more from the range, which is available online from www.obeyyourbodyuk.com.
