Founder of TOSé Apothecary, Abha Sharma (a natural cosmetic formulator) made contact recently and asked if I'd like to try and review a product from the range. As I love supporting and trying new indie brands I jumped at the chance and chose Vanilla & Coffee Butter Lip Scrub (£9 - 35ml)* which is packaged simply in a recyclable glass pot with a pretty label.
The range is pure, natural and formulated using the finest natural and active botanical ingredients with the highest potency plant actives. The products are a blend of science, great ingredients and formulations along with holistic knowledge and bags of passion and love.
Abha first created products for her own enjoyment and on finding that they improved her skin decided to create for others also. The first product she created which she shared with family and friends was Vanilla & Lemon Salt Scrub.
I've been testing out the delicious (and good enough to eat) Vanilla & Coffee Butter Lip Scrub* which heals, nourishes and gently exfoliates the lips leaving them feeling super-soft and moisturised.
The Lip Scrub has a gentle coffee scent (think a creamy vanilla latte - yum) and is super moisturising and makes for a truly pampering treat. To use: take a small amount of scrub on fingertips and apply in a circular motion massaging for 2-3 minutes before rinsing and patting dry.
I've been really impressed with how effective (and lovely) this product is. I'll be sure to check out more from the range.
