Shores of Fiji...a proper introduction
The perfume in a 5ml apothecary bottle
The Shea Butter Sugar Scrub - 200g jar.
The Bathing Grains in a 250g ziplock bag.
Shores of Fiji was created a little while back and kinda took a backseat whilst all the products for Halloween were introduced.
Now as my mind rests before I tackle Xmas production, I find myself in need of a holiday.
I'm not going to get one....
The next best thing for any beauty product junkie (like my good self) is a good long soak in the bath and a good ol' dream of lounging about in the South Pacific.
So....what have I been reaching for?
Yep...my own product...my own little holiday in a jar/brown bag/bottle.
My own island paradise without the cost of the air fare.
The scent is wonderful. It's not a mix of essential oils, it's a heavenly blend of fragrant oils.
The top notes are sun-ripened Mango with a faint hint of pineapple and sugar which then blends into a creamy toasted coconut base.
How could I have neglected this???!
It's super good.
Last night I sprinkled some grains into my bath and lay back in the tropical - scented waters for a while before scooping out a generous amount of the sugar scrub. The scrub texture is like a really thick cookie dough. It's not sloppy, it's firm in the jar due to all the organic Shea butter I've lashed into it. It works a treat on knees and upper arms and of course the backside area.. ; )
It leaves the skin super soft without the need to use a separate moisturiser afterwards, which is great for people like me who can't be arsed to mess about after I dry off. I just want soft skin without putting an hour's worth of effort into it.
The scent from the scrub lingered a good long while too, which is a bonus.
After I'd made these 2 products I set about making a perfume oil to match.
I did it!
I like to layer my products so I get a good hit of the scent yanno?
So from Bathing Grains to Sugar Scrub to perfume....I'm all set for my little fantasy.
Blue skies with a few whispy clouds, hot sun, the scent of limes on a sea breeze, a cool glass of margharita in one hand and a plate full of lobster in the other...it can be achieved..with a little bit of imagination...and with this little range of SHORES OF FIJI
PS: there is no soap in this range....should I make one?!
