St Grape Natural Skincare Review

I've recently been trying out some amazing new products from a brand called St Grape and have been truly enjoying them, so had to let you guys know. The brand focuses on healing, repairing and providing you with a spa like relaxing environment in the comfort of your home. The products smell deliciously soothing and are a perfect little aromatherapy treat for skincare lovers.

I personally find the scent of these products to be stress relieving so if you are someone who finds it difficult to wind down after a hectic day, you should definitely check them out. The skincare products are all natural and I like how they focus on eco friendly packaging, whilst still making it look chic and sophisticated.

I believe these would make fabulous Christmas presents for anyone who's into skin and well being and will save you the trouble of gift wrapping them!

The Invisible Skin Massage Oil is gorgeous. I can see where the name originates from as it quickly absorbs into the skin on application. Having said that, it still makes a lovely massage oil and allows the fingers to move around the body providing just the right amount of slip. It leaves skin looking naturally glowing and radiant instead of oil slick.

Did you know it's a blend of 9 essential oils, the concoction of which not only makes it smell uplifting but makes it a lovely product to sooth muscle pain and to promote relaxation. If you suffer from dry skin and don't like the heavy feeling of creams, you'll love this as it's superbly hydrating. It smells refreshing, soothing yet uplifting, almost minty yet woody and warm. A must-have for skincare addicts or if you like to indulge in body massages quite often.

Coming to the Aqua Bliss Face & Body Scrub. This is divine for £12! I have seen so many high end skincare brands charging atrocious prices for body scrubs with mediocre product inside so compared to that, this is quite amazing. The texture of the product is quite unique and the only way I can describe is, is the texture of ice. It's so smooth and finely blended that is almost slips off your fingers like sand. The minute granules work at exfoliating the skin gently without being abrasive or harsh at all. It contains mineral sea salt and natural oil extracts and leaves skin almost velvety smooth and bright.

The scent of this is like that of when you enter a spa which works at creating a relaxing aura. I like to use this in the bath as it's a multi tasker that works just as well on the face as it does on the body. If you're lazy with scrubs or find them irritating on your delicate skin, this is a great alternative to try for the price. Also, it comes in pretty packaging making it a great contender for a Christmas pressie.

The Ancient Foot Scrub is another stunner with a strong minty, refreshing scent and large, dry exfoliating granules. I like how the products contain dry ingredients for scrub with no layer of oil within them. However, it still seems to be hydrating on the skin which is what I like. If you have a foot spa machine at home, I like to put some in the bubbling water and coat some on my feet before dipping them into warm water.

Even if you don't have a foot spa at home, just warm up some water in the bath tub and soak your feet after a long, tiring day with this sprinkled all over. To get rid of dead skin and chapped feet, massage this for a minute or two and it's quite potent at leaving feet looking like they've just had a nice little pedicure. You get a huge pot for £25 and is bound to last ages if you use it occasionally as a DIY pampering treat. The minty scent is a little overpowering but works quite well for relaxation.

Last but not the least, I have an Exotic Soaking Salt from them which is blend of 84 minerals! Containing Himalayan Salt Crystals and Essential Oils, this product is the ultimate bath time treat. Perfect for insomniacs and night owls, try taking a bath with this at night to encourage a good nights sleep. Again, it smells very minty and refreshing but works well at creating a stimulating atmosphere. 

I sometimes use it as a scrub on the feet when in the bath and it works well at getting feet looking polished. I love the packaging it comes in that makes it look ever so appealing. If you're also a workout enthusiast like myself, this is great after leg day and for sore muscles. 

On the whole, I'm quite impressed with what I've seen from the brand. I like their attention to detail and how they don't compromise on any aspect of the product. They are priced quite reasonably and I have my eyes set on many more, especially as presents. Apparently they will be revamping their packaging just in time for the festive season, so keep your eyes peeled.
