I love it when I get sent fabulous goodies to try out, it makes me love my job even more! Recently I got sent some fantastic body products from Rain who are a local company based in Swellendam. Rain specialises in creating handmade, African inspired bathroom and body products with a focus on natural ingredients and care for the environment.
I got to try four products from their brand new Biologie range which is proudly eco ethical and formulated using organically certified botanical ingredients and wild harvested plant oils and extracts. The ingredients include this season’s super oils: Mongongo Nut Oil, Marula Oil, Kalahari Melon, Mafura Butter and Baobab Oil, which are high in anti-oxidants, vitamins, omega oils and essential fatty acids to nourish and protect the skin against free radical damage. Biologie products are also biodegradable.
I really enjoyed all four products, their fragrances are all slightly different depending on what their key ingredient is but they all have an invigorating and quite aromatic/herb-like scent. It’s the the kind of fragrance that feels super clean and fresh but that’s difficult to actually pinpoint! I also love the traditional apothecary feel of the bottles and labels.
* 100% Natural Hand & Body Lotion
Love this product! It’s a lightweight cream that rubs in smoothly and doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy at all.
* 100% Natural Hand & Body Wash
Also lovely but I found I prefer to use this as a hand wash as opposed to a body wash. Once again the fragrance is strong and fills the air while you’re washing your hands with a fresh, herb-like scent.
* Relaxing Massage Oil
This product will probably go wasted on me as I’m not really big into massage oils. Having said that I did massage it into my hands before bed and the next morning they felt silky smooth.
* Manketti & Starflower Body Scrub
A softer fragrance, with exfoliating cane sugar granules to exfoliate and buff, I definitely need this!
