Mary Elizabeth Camellia & Geranium Gentle Face Scrub

Mary Elizabeth Bodycare got in touch with me to ask if I'd like to sample any of their products.  I chose to try the Camellia & Geranium Gentle Face Scrub*


I was sent a decent sized sample - enough for me to try this for around a week.  It smells gorgeous!  It is a super gentle scrub and leaves my skin super soft and moisturised.

"Rich in Vitamin A this supermoisturising face scrub is so gentle that it can be used everyday to cleanse and brighten the complexion".

Directions - massage onto the face avoiding the eye area, dampen skin and massage again.  Then rinse.  Suitable for all skin types.



The company is run by Cecillia and her daughter Claire.  In 2010, Cecillia had skin cancer.  Treatment was successful but her skin was left red and sore and as an Aromatherapist she made herself a product which soothed her skin.  Shortly afterwards she decided to set up Mary Elizabeth with her daughter.

Packaging is kept simple - there is no excess packaging like boxes for the products and the packaging is recyclable.

No parabens, SLS, Petrochemicals, Artificial Colours or Fragrance.  The company is also against animal testing.


Active Ingredients - Camellia Oil, Avocado Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Exfoliant Cupuacu, Rose Geranium Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Sorbitol

Full size retails at £12.50 for 50g.


I'll definitely be purchasing the scrub - its fantastic! Have you used any of these products before?
