I love discovering new skin care companies! I just got the chance to review some of the best bath and body products ever from Treets Traditions.
With a focus on the knowledge our ancestors used to heal themselves with what they found in nature, Treets Traditions uses a blend of unique herbs to create products that are healing and nourishing for your skin.
I received samples of the following products to review:
Treets Traditions Foaming Shower Gels
Nourish skin with this decadent gel to foam formula that supports skin health with regional ingredients. Available in Nourishing Spirits, Relaxing Chakra’s, Healing In Harmony, Revitalising Ceremonies, and Energising Secrets, these luxurious foams transform your shower and leave behind delicious scents.
I was sent energising secrets and healing in harmony fragrances. This foaming shower gel is beyond luxurious and fun to use in the shower. Both fragrances are amazing and completely uplifting. All you do is squirt a small amount into your hand, and it foams up instantly into a thick, rich lather that is perfect for shaving your legs. I absolutely love it!
2 in 1 Hair & Body Wash
Soap-free hair and body wash for daily mild cleansing. Traditional Eucalyptus oil has a calming effect and Nordic Cranberry oil, known to contain Vitamin C and antioxidants, helps to protect the skin.
I am loving using this product as a gentle shampoo. It smells so wonderful, and it makes my hair feel very clean and healthy.
I received two of these delightful body scrubs in relaxing chakra, and energising secrets.
Relaxing Chakra's~ Exfoliating body scrub with traditional Asian Coconut oil and Rose to nourish and moisturise the skin. Gently exfoliates the skin, allowing it to breathe again. Helps improve skin tone and balance. Leaves the skin delightfully scented.
Energising Secrets~ Exfoliating body scrub with traditional Amazonian Tamanu and Sacha inchi oil to nourish and soothe skin. Gently exfoliates the skin, allowing it to breathe again. Helps improve skin tone and balance. Leaves the skin delightfully scented.
Both of these scrubs make my skin glow, and feel smooth and silky. These formulas are perfect for getting your skin ready for a bit of sunless tanning products to help boost your skin's glow. And did I mention that they smell amazing?
I received relaxing chakra's and nourishing spirits body oils.
Relaxing Chakra's~ Super caring body oil. For a soft and smooth skin all day long. Absorbs quickly and leaves skin soft but not greasy. Contains vitamin E.
Nourishing Spirits~ Super nourishing miracle oil for face, body, hair, hands and nails with 6 precious natural oils - including Baobab oil, Marula oil and vitamin E. Reduces the appearance of stretch marks and scars. Highly effective for dehydrated and ageing skin. Helps improve the appearance of damaged skin. Dermatologically tested. Suitable for normal, dry and sensitive skin.
Each one of these formulas are the best! I always bring them into the shower with me, and I apply the oil all over my skin while it is still damp. This seals in the moisture to keep my skin supple, silky and glowing. Plus, my skin smells delicious!
This moisturising body lotion applies easily and absorbs quickly. A combination of traditional Nordic Wild Thyme and Cranberry with extra Vitamin C and antioxidants help to protect the skin. For all skin types.
There's nothing quite like this amazing body lotion. It leaves my skin completely soft and smooth. I apply it after showers and also after shaving my legs before I put on a skirt or shorts. My skin if perfectly hydrated and smells exhilerating.
These bath fizzers are based on the tradition of cleaning and purifying with soda. Treets has added the traditional African Kalahari melon oil and Baobab oil to help moisturise, protect and nourish dry skin.
There's nothing quite like a relaxing hot bath to wind down after a long, stressful day of parenting! I love to add one of these heavenly bath fizzers to my tub and watch it dissolve. That in itself is relaxing and quite satisfying. When the fragrance envelopes my senses and the skin softeners starts to caress my skin with their luxurious ingredients, I just melt. Ahhhh!
As with all Treets products~ "We respect mother nature. Free of: SLS, SLES, parabens, silicones, colourants and mineral oils."
