Product Review: Dr. Organic Manuka honey face scrub

Sunday, 7 December 2014

For anyone who suffers with dry skin, particularly in the winter, this face scrub is turning out to be a right blessing! It was a gift from a friend, that predictably sat in a drawer unused for absolutely ages but since I have started to use it, I haven't stopped! I'm quite picky when it comes to face scrubs and am usually never 100% satisfied but this scrub tops it for me.

 What we put on to our skin is so important, so knowing that the Dr. Organic range is paraben, SLS, artificial colour, preservative and fragrance free is nice and reassuring. The Dr. Organic brand pride themselves on and have been given several awards for their natural and mostly organic grown ingredients and are suitable for vegetarians as well as not tested on animals. Their complete range uses loads of organic plant oils, butters and extracts and interestingly aloe vera replaces water in most of their products.

Maybe it's the volcanic particles or maybe it's the corn cob powder, but this is one scrub I can really feel. So often scrubs have pathetic little beads that I don't feel like are actually doing anything to get rid of that dry winter skin, but this thick white scrub has a nice gritty feel, so it feels like it's actually you know, exfoliating, like it's supposed to. The aloe vera juice, sweet almond oil, avocado oil and grapeseed oil mean that like the label says, the scrub is 'deep cleansing, super hydrating and intensely nourishing', to the point where I can feel an immediate improvement, in the softness and tone of my skin. Manuka honey has long been known for its natural benefits and the best bit? It smells like honey. Try not to get too close to anyone straight after using, they may want to lick your face, that's how good it smells.

This was a gift from a friend not the company, so these are all entirely my own views.
You can check out the Dr. Organic site here and they are also stocked at Holland and Barrett with the scrub retailing at £5.99. I've also seen adverts lately about the Dr Organic snail gel range which is meant to be good for wrinkles...because I aint getting any younger!
