thea skincare oriental insparations range
I've tried a few products from Thea Skincare and I've been happy with all of them so when the opportunity arose to try some of their products from the new oriental range, I jumped at the chance. Thea products contain natural, organic ingredients and are free from parabens, fragrance, sulphates and they are not tested on animals. Check out my review of Thea Skincare Fruit Enzyme Range and the Thea Skincare Super Nourish Beauty Butter - the beauty butter is by far my favourite product from Thea Skincare. 

*Thea Skincare Oriental InSPArations Body Lotion (15ml) which to me smells like ginger and lemongrass. It is a nice change when compared to the vanilla and floral body lotions I have. The lotion feels nourishing and thick but it isn't heavy or greasy; it really helps with dryness and it doesn't irritate my skin. The lotion leaves my skin so smooth and moisturised!

*Thea Skincare Oriental InSPArations Coconut + Lemongrass Body Balm (15ml) again it has a similar scent to the first body lotion but the scent isn't as strong. The balm looks like solid coconut oil. It feels like solid coconut oil too and when applied to the skin is it very oily/greasy so I would not use it all over the body but I've been using it on my feet and it instantly removes the look and feel of dryness. A little goes a long way so you need to be careful with it but it is great for the feet. 

*Thea Skincare Oriental InSPArations Body, Hand & Foot Bamboo Exfoliator. It looks and feels like a whipped body cream but it contains sugar like grains. It does exfoliate but I personally would like a body exfoliator that is more grainy/gritty. The scent of this product is just incredible, it smells exactly like a Starbucks gingerbread latte with whipped cream - yes, amazing! It would be perfect at christmas. 

*Thea Skincare Fruit & Spice Hand Wash, it smell quite different to the other products in this range. To me it smells like fruit pastels mixed with general mulled wine spices - it's a lovely combination and again it would be great to use around christmas time. The hand wash has a gel consistency, it lathers fairly well and it doesn't dry out my skin. 

*Thea Skincare Oriental InSPArations Hair & Body Wash; I used it as a hand wash not as a shampoo and I don't think it would be great as a shampoo because it doesn't lather very well. The product has a gel consistency, it smells like lemongrass/ginger and it also doesn't dry out my skin. The scent does last on my skin for a while. 

*Thea Skincare Oriental InSPArations Body Glow Oil, which smells like lemongrass and ginger. It is a little bit of a greasy oil and I personally find that it doesn't absorb very quickly so I have been either applying a small amount at night on my feet/hands then I will put on my cotton socks/gloves so the oil doesn't transfer everywhere. I have also been applying it to massage into the skin (hands/legs etc) then washing it off so it adds some hydration but there isn't any greasy feeling. 

Overall, a little bit of a mixed bag of products and in my opinion the range is quite christmasy/wintery smelling rather than a summer collection. However, I really like the exfoliator, body balm and the body lotion!

Have you tried any products from Thea Skincare?

  3. How odd to call it summery when it scented more towards the winter.
