Miss Patisserie Daisy Chain Body Scrub

Anyone who gets dry skin really understands the benefits of using a good scrub to get the skin feeling really nice and soft. Many brands offer different scrubs and last year Miss Patisserie opened a store in Cardiff. 

They offer sugar scrubs and coffee scrubs. I've never really tried a coffee scrub, although I really would like to try them. When I was shopping in store I decided to check out their range of sugar scrubs. They do them in a range of different scents and in the store they actually have a sink where you can put your hands under and try the products on your skin. This is great as trying before you buy is really important. More and more skincare brands are putting sinks or access to water in their shops including Lush, Basin, Body Shop and this brand too.

After trying a few of the scents, the one I liked best was Daisy Chain. It comes in a nice see through tub with a lid you can actually flip open. To use just flip the sides up and there you have your product. I once bought a scrub from Basin that had exactly the same packaging. When Body Shop had their Africa Spa Body Butter the packaging was the same too. Sadly that product is now long gone. I really like the design as it is really easy to use and looks great too.

I did notice that the scrubs do share their names with some of the bath bombs that are in store too. They also offer body butters in the same scent to go with the scrub if you want one to go with it.

Daisy Chain is a nice purple color (don't worry the scrub won't stain your hands). The scent is really nice and floral, perfect for Spring and Summer. I found you don't have to use a lot as a small amount goes quite a long way. The scrub isn't too rough on the skin unlike some scrubs I have tried. After using it, it really does leave your skin feeling nice and soft. This is probably because of the vitamin e, sweet almond and jojoba oil that comes in it.

These scrubs really do have a bonus too. Moisturising after isn't needed. This must be the only scrub I have used where it isn't necessary to use a moisturizer after. It sort of gives your skin all the moisture it needs even after rinsing with water.

  1. This sounds really good and I love that it's a local brand - good to know you don't need to use a moisturiser afterwards

  2. I'm really not a fan of scrubs. I don't like the way they feel on my skin (scratchy in the main) and they make a mess of the bath. But I know they have a lot of love elsewhere! :). I body brush my skin to exfoliate the top layer. Tx
