Toby and Rosie Natural Skincare and Soaps
Every girl has their favourites. Some love lipsticks. Some love a great mascara. Others are still searching for the perfect nail colour. I fall into the category of those girls who love a great soap and moisturiser. It's not unusual to find me at the local markets smelling all the soaps and testing out the handmade lotions and body scrubs. I can't seem to help myself.
I stumbled upon a skincare shop called Toby and Rosie a few weeks ago when I was doing a little bit of research for my blog and instantly fell in love with the variety of cruelty free and organic skincare that these guys offer.
Last week I was able to justify buying a few soaps because Christmas is coming up and I was running very low on skincare, so this is what I bought and why.
I love mochas and who would have thought to make a mocha soap? Toby and Rosie of course! This is a really decent size of 200g and it smells fantastic. There are bits of coffee beans on top and ground coffee powder in the bar. Olive Oil and Coco Butter really moisturise the skin while ground coffee powder buffs away dead skin to reveal soft and smooth skin.
After doing a bit of research on Charcoal I'm not so afraid of it now. I decided to get the Activated Charcoal soap and use it as a face cleanser. This bar is also huge at 200g, so I'm guessing it will last a long time. Activated charcoal has no scent so it would be perfect for men and women (I'm hoping to convince my husband to try this.) To use this I just wet my face with warm water, lather the soap in my hands and massage it around then wash it off. I would still recommend a moisturiser with this one because my face felt a little tight after using this.
For the man, aka. my dad, I decided to buy him a little something for Christmas because he uses a lot of the shaving gels and lotions that have all those yucky chemicals. This has a distinct smell of clay (if you use pink clay you would know what I am talking about) Beer has plenty of vitamins and minerals that are great for making skin soft and supple and clay aids for a nice slip on the skin making it easy to get a close shave. This bar is also suitable for ladies who shave.
Rainforest Mist*, what an amazing name for a body scrub! This name reminds me of walking into a rainforest just after it has been raining. This is made of organic raw sugar and has avocado oil and olive oil to help moisturise the skin. I think this is a really interesting blend of essential oils of Bergamont, Tea Tree, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass and mint and it creates a really refreshing, light and crisp scent.
