I love high quality body exfoliators, and I really love using them. I enjoy the refreshing process of sloughing off dead skin cells, and revealing silky smooth skin. However, I like gentle formulas without jagged exfoliating particles that can tear and damage the skin. My most recent body scrub obsession is the lovely COWSHED Gorgeous Cow Blissful Shower Scrub, and not only is it gentle, but the delectable rose scent makes using it an unmitigated delight. It looks a bit like strawberry jam, and smells equally edible, and unlike many body scrubs that contain oils, this one does not make an oily and slippery mess of your shower. The Jojoba Beads and Coconut Fibre are simultaneously very gentle on the skin and extremely effective in their ability to exfoliate the skin. Therefore, this scrub is a great choice for all skin types– including sensitive skin. Skin is left soft, silky smooth, supple and ultra-luminous. I love everything about this scrub, and definitely plan to buy a replacement tube as soon as I finish this one up.
According to COWSHED,
Power-packed with natural ingredients including Avocado Oil and Vitamin E, this scrub will leave you with ultra-soft, glowing and delicately fragranced skin. The luxurious rose scented formula contains both Jojoba Beads and Coconut Fibre which won’t be too tough on sensitive skin, but is perfect for those who prefer a slightly grittier scrub to slough away dead skin cells
Cowshed was founded by Nick Jones, taking its name from the formerly working cow shed of his Somerset estate. While sourcing natural products for the estate’s rooms and spa, he was inspired to create a custom range of bath and body products.
With the assistance of expert fragrancier Richard Howard, Cowshed set to developing a range centred on the therapeutic nature of botanical essential oils. Cowshed products are made in England, with a variety of organic ingredients, wildcrafted plant extracts and pure essential oil of the highest quality. Cowshed selects cold pressed, extra virgin and other premium grade oils to ensure their essential vitamin and naturally replenishing fatty acid content are not lost.
Although its products are playfully named, Cowshed takes its formulations very seriously. They avoid the use preservatives and synthetics, and all of its products are plant-based with naturally derived ingredients. All Cowshed products are free from Parabens, Petrochemicals, Sulphaptes, PEGs, artificial colours or fragrances, Phthalates, Triclosan, GMOs, Animal ingredients and animal testing.
- Ylang-Ylang: Sensual, relaxing and balancing; beneficial in treating both dry and oily skin.
- Cinnamon: Cinnamon has excellent anti-fungal properties and will leave your hair smelling delicious.
Overall Assessment: It smells good enough to eat, but I wouldn't recommend it. This is such an impressive scrub because it is ultra gentle without sacrificing efficacy. It is definitely a covet-worthy body scrub.
