Buff Natural Body Care is a Devon based beauty company that specialises in creating ‘ethically sound’, 100% natural sea salt body scrubs. Their collection contains five blends; UP, NUIT, BODY, MAMA and NAKED, with each targeting a different aspect of your lifestyle. UP, for example, contains an invigorating and awakening blend of Lemon and Spearmint to energise the senses, whereas BODY contains a post-workout power blend of Cypress and Juniper Berry to cleanse and soothe hard-working muscles. I was very kindly sent the MAMA Natal Blend Sea Salt Body Scrub* (60ml/£8) to try.
Buff Natural Body Care created this product because “being a Mum is the most important job in the world and Mums need nurturing to”. I couldn’t agree more! I am now officially past my due date, and I am in definite need of some pampering. My poor back aches, my tummy is stretched and I have over a hundred things to do before my baby girl’s arrival. To say I’m overwhelmed is a bit of an understatement, so taking the time to run a hot bath and pamper myself with this indulgent scrub was just what the doctor ordered.
The scrub is safe for women to use from their second trimester and throughout breastfeeding and contains a hand-whipped blend of gently exfoliating hand-harvested sea salt, moisturising certified organic coconut oil, grapeseed oil and vitamin E oils. Each glass jar comes with a little wooden spoon to mix the scrub as some blends tend to separate when warm. It’s also recommended that you pop them in the fridge several minutes before application. As soon as you open the glass jar you are greeted with the sensual and calming scent of mandarin, lavender and frankincense oil. Applied to wet skin and then gently rubbed in circular motions, the scrub left my skin feeling soft, smooth, moisturised and subtly scented all day long. The scent of lavender really helps me to relax and calm my mind, so I find this product perfect for using just before bedtime to promote a good nights rest.
