Products arrive here in category waves – I’m seeing so much new body product rather than skin care (which is fine by me as skin care is my least favourite range to write about). I flagged up this new brand, Living Sea Therapy, a little while ago, but I’ve now settled on a favourite from the range – the Sea Salt Salt Scrub.
If your skin can’t tolerate a ‘rough’ scrub, then this isn’t for you because the salt flakes are quite big. You really don’t need to use a big amount, but the thing that is quite incredible is the balm that holds the salt. It is one of the most skin softening products I’ve ever come across, and makes your body feel as though you stepped out of a warm oil bath.
The fragrance has a slightly ozonic element – or maybe it’s the power of suggestion – but mostly you’ll find notes of lemongrass and peppermint. I wanted to look more closely at what’s in the base and it starts with sweet almond oil, shea butter, beeswax (so not suitable for vegans), cardamom seed oil, coriander seed oil, lavender flower oil, spearmint leaf oil, peppermint leaf oil, lemongrass leaf oil, cedarwood oil, grapefruit peel oil, argan oil, sea buckthorn seed oil – no wonder my skin feels so amazing!
Living Sea Therapy also boasts 60 minerals and vitamins thanks to their ‘living sea complex’). These aren’t benefits that you will leap out of the bath marvelling at like the oil, but quietly behind the watery scenes, elements such as magnesium, lithium and bromine could have a relaxing effect on the brain by maintaining serotonin, melatonin and tryptamine. It’s impossible to say whether you’d ever feel the effects because frequency and quantity aren’t really mentioned but the minerals contribute to the overall ‘well being’ nature of this product.
Mainly, it’s the base balm that has me hooked – you could take the sea salt out and I wouldn’t mind: a bathing balm maybe? Nobody does that. Yet. It’s £26 HERE.
