The summer that has kept giving. The higher temperatures we've experienced in the UK mean that hedgerows are bulging with wild juicy fruit much earlier than usual. And it's helped us in the creation of our latest body scrub concoction. Inspired fully by two of our favourite things... Rural Somerset, and gin. Yep, we're excited to share with you the Sloe Down Scrub with Sloe Gin & Elderberries.
TELL ME MORE...
Our new Sloe Down Scrub with Sloe Gin & Elderberries is bursting with natural sea salt, skin loving oils, a flood of sloe gin, blackberries and bursting with whole elderberries. The elderberries burst on to the skin with a flood of vitamins and antioxidants, turning the salt a deep purple.
WHY WE LOVE IT SO...
Quite simply, it's everything we love about late summer and early Autumn. Succulent juicy blackberries straight from the hedgerow. Delicate branches of elderberries. Trees groaning with ripe sloes. Our first port of call: We're home brewing. Sloe gin is the perfect hand-made Christmas gift - the team at Natural Spa Factory are all dab hands at a batch of great Sloe Gin. There are plenty of secret family recipes being put to the test. So we didn't have to look to far for the perfect new scrub inspiration! Sloe Down Scrub with Sloe Gin & Elderberries - born out of our passion for great local produce.
WHO IS IT FOR?
This is the perfect gift for gin lovers, of course! The Sloe Down Scrub with Sloe Gin & Elderberries can form part of your weekly Autumn skincare routine. Skin needs a little more TLC as the weather gets a cooler. This will help in shedding dead skin cells, nourishing and hydrating new skin cells to leave skin radiant and super softened.
HOW TO USE THE SLOE DOWN SCRUB WITH SLOE GIN & ELDERBERRIES
Great for a bit of home-spa pampering. Massage a little scrub on to dampened skin. Massage in circles, working towards the heart - so, start at the feet, and work up. This can be used on the soles of the feet, but it will be very slippery - so take great care! Use the scrub all over the body, working over the torso and arms, and simply rinse away with warm water. With a towel, pat skin dry, ensuring not to remove too much of the excess oils - can be massaged in to the skin to leave you hydrated and nourished.
WORKS WELL WITH...
The Sloe Down Scrub with Sloe Gin & Elderberries can work brilliantly as a stand alone product as it simultaneously buffs and nourishes skin. If you do need an extra nourished boost, try with the Sensitive Face & Body Oil. With rosehip (another late summer favourite), raspberry, basil, geranium, frankincense and cedarwood, you can use as a massage oil or as a really pure body moisturiser.
