Purifying-Body-Scrub-900x900To keep skin soft, supple and glowing one must scrub regularly. No news there, but, did you know that microbeads used in most scrubs are actually tiny plastic fragments we wash away to end up in the ocean after every scrub? Luckily UrbanVeda came up with a super fresh scrub that let’s nature do the work: walnut shell powder and pumice exfoliate, while Bearberry, Witchhazel and Neem contribute to the anti-oxidant and collagen boosting qualities. Tried and tested, we can confirm this is a really good scrub, and boy is it fresh! Tingling sensations galore, you might say. This scrub will help you lose that winter skin in no time!  UrbanVeda Purifying Body Scrub, £8.99 for 200 ml.
After a good scrub you need a good body lotion to sooth and feed your skin. We recommend the UrbanVeda Purifying body lotion and the Radiance body lotion. Both £9.99 for 250 ml
Purifying-Body-Lotion-autoxautoPurifying Body Lotion
What the bottle says: “Naturally formulated to Ayurvedic principles, our light hydrating Purifying Body Lotion is rich in detoxifying botanicals which strengthen skin, improve elasticity, tone, condition and nourish. Star ingredient cold-pressed Neem oil aids skin health, while collagen-boosting, moisturising extracts contribute to skin’s barrier function, helping to protect from transepidermal water loss and keeping skin youthful, firm and supple. Enhanced with antioxidant-rich extracts and refreshing essential oils to revitalise.”
Our humble opinion (after extensive testing): lovely refreshing and light body lotion, not as tingling as the scrub, which is nice as the body lotion stays on and too much tingling is not pleasant in our opinion. Also very suitable for men as it has a fresh, neutral scent.
Radiance-Body-Lotion-autoxautoRadiance Body Lotion
What the bottle says: “Naturally formulated using Ayurvedic principles, our Radiance Body Lotion locks in moisturise to replenish and repair. Key Ayurvedic collagen-boosting ingredients and antioxidant-rich superfruits work in synergy to enhance all-over skin tone and radiance, soothe dry areas and contribute to skin’s barrier function, helping to protect from transepidermal water loss and keeping skin youthful, firm and hydrated.”
Our humble opinion (after extensive testing): another lovely body lotion with a different experience than the Purifying Body Lotion: feels more indulging and luxurious than refreshing. Leaves a lovely feminine sweet scent, similar to the UrbanVeda face cream we tested earlier.
Give them a try and be ready to reveal your lovely legs for Spring!
