If You Only Buy One Thing This Week
Whether it’s been a long week, or you need the motivation to get up and go, we think it’s always time to treat yourself. You are incredible, after all.
In this series, we’re bringing you the low-down on a product that we’ve fallen in love with – one we think you can’t live without.
Dr Botanicals Coconut Oil Rejuvenating Body Exfoliating Bar
How to use it
So let’s forget everything we previously thought about soaps, because the Coconut Oil Rejuvenating Body Exfoliating Bar from Dr Botanicals has opened our eyes and switched us on to the benefits of a body bar. This clever combo product is a multi-tasker; cleansing, hydrating and exfoliating in the time it takes to jump in and out of the shower. Simply lather up, breathe in the dreamy coconut aroma and then rinse off. As well as washing your body with it, you can use it for your face and hands, too.
Why we love it
It’s all the sumptuous creamy coconut oil crammed into this antioxidant-rich bar that makes it feel so very un-soap-like; rather than drying the skin, it really holds in moisture for deep hydration as you get clean. The shredded coconut in the bar gently exfoliates and removes dead skin cells, leaving skin feeling super-soft, plus the added shell powder promotes younger-looking skin and aids collagen production. What’s more, the natural, vegan ingredients in Dr Botanicals’ body bars are paraben-free, and without a harmful preservative in sight. We’re in love with the eco packaging, too.
Where to buy it
We’ve popped a full-sized bar, worth £19.90, into May’s Pink Parcel. You can visit the Pink Shop when it’s time to stock up, or if you’re now a total body bar convert (yep, we told you they were good!), you might be tempted to try the other cleansing bars in the Dr Botanicals range. The Chamomile & Sandalwood Hydrating Body Cleansing Bar, Wild Raspberry & Lemon Moisturising Body Cleansing Bar, and Bulgarian Rose Petal Nourishing Body Cleansing Bar have unique cleansing properties and smell equally amazing.
