Getting rid of dead skin cells and exfoliating not only gives us a glow after showering, it means we’re looking after our skin during the harsh winter months.
And right now, Green Living is loving the Coconut & Buriti Body Scrub (£11.75) from amaZene.
We didn’t know what buriti was until we tried the product, but now we’re fans of this Brazilian palm tree, the extracts of which offer a rich source of beta carotene and pro-vitamin A.
AmaZene create exclusive bath and body products that are rich in organic ingredients and inspired by the lush rainforests of the Amazon.
Organic açai, babaçu and cupuaçu – which help to nourish and protect the skin – form the foundation of every amaZene product, so whatever you choose from the collection of body, hand and bath treats, they will always feature these key ingredients.
Açai is a powerful antioxidant which helps combat the signs of ageing, babaçu is a precious palm oil which is used for its superior emollient properties and cupuaçu moisturises while helping to firm, tone and restore the skin’s natural elasticity – it’s the ABC of Amazonian beauty!
What we loved about the body scrub was the delicious coconut scent as well as the way it went onto the skin smoothly, thanks to its creamy base.
It washed off easily too, and wasn’t too harsh, leaving skin soft, smooth and smelling lovely.
Within the Coconut & Buriti range you’ll find a body lotion, butter and scrub as well as a bath soak, a hand lotion and wash and a bath and shower gel.
All products boast lots of natural ingredients and are free from unnecessary synthetic nasties, such as parabens and sulphates.
Other collections include the Avocado & Andiroba (an Amazonian tree) range and the Cocoa & Copaiba collection that uses seed extracts from the trees of the same name.
