Today I've got a review of a new discovery for me from a new brand of scrub called Dirtea.
Dirtea are a collection of high performance, completely organic, fully loaded, antioxidant scrubs for the face and body. There are three topical treatment scrubs available which each combine freshly ground organic tea with specific essential oils, minerals and vitamins to work wonders on your skin and to treat specific skin conditions.
They launched earlier this year in America and have already had so much success with celebrities, bloggers, press and customers loving their products. Their products are now available world wide so that everyone can enjoy them.
When Dirtea got in touch with me and asked if they could send me a sample of their Chai and Coconut Scrub to try, I jumped at the chance as the concept sounded so fun.
So lets get down to the nitty gritty...
The Dirtea Chai and Coconut is a scrub that can be used on both the face and the body. It is designed to help to naturally clear stretch marks and cellulite and to reveal healthy, radiant skin. It is ideal for anyone, from those who just want to take care of their skin to those who are concerned about stretch marks or those who have just had a baby or are expecting.
This tea contains Organic Black Tea Powder which helps to deeply nourish and exfoliate the skin. It has a high caffeine content which helps to tighten the skin and make it firmer. Not only that but Black Tea also helps to reduce wrinkles and prevent pimples so it will help to keep the skin looking youthful and blemish free.
The scent of this scrub is beautiful, it has a very summery, slightly spicy fragrance that can be smelt lightly on the skin for hours after use. As soon as I opened the package, I could smell how delicious the scrub was.
I used it in the bath as I could tell that it was going to be a little messy as most scrubs are, and it was! Essentially this is a dry scrub as it is just the ground up tea with the essential oils mixed in; there is no solution or gel liquid that it is set in. Although the contents are very different, the fact that its a dry tea reminds me of the Elemis scrub that I reviewed here.
Applying the scrub was so easy, I simply wet my body first using the shower head and then I sat in an empty bath and massaged the Dirtea Chai and Coconut scrub into my skin. It felt so abrasive yet instantly moisturising thanks to the oils that are in the formula. Then I lay back while I ran the water in the bath and relaxed for a good ten minutes before washing it off. Its important to leave it on the skin so that the Black Tea Powder and all of the essential oils can work their magic on the skin.
Aside from smelling amazing, this scrub feels amazing too and it left my skin feeling so soft and supple as well as giving it a healthy, radiance. The softness actually lasted on my skin as well, right through until the next day. I do have quite dry skin on my body and this scrub was perfect for keeping it hydrated and moisturised as well as feeling smooth!
I haven't tried it enough to see whether it would have an impact on cellulite or stretch marks but it certainly made my skin feel great and I would absolutely buy the full size.
What I love about Dirtea as a brand is that they're a brand who care. All of their products are organic and vegan. They're all paraben and psosphate free, cruelty free as they do not test on animals or use animal bi-products within their formula and they're gluten and chemical free too so you know exactly what you're putting on your skin. if that wasn't enough, they also donate a percentage of their sales to the Skin Cancer Foundation, PETA and water.org charities. I also love how they list the ingredients of all of their products on their website so you know exactly what you're putting on your body.
I can't wait to try out more from Dirtea. I'll be playing an order for my birthday at the end of September which will time nicely with coming home from my holiday and needing a little exfoliation and hydration!
You can buy Dirtea for yourself here and join in the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #GetDirtea and #Kloodos who are the UK distributors of the tea.
