I recently came across a gorgeous local skin care range, Planet Earth.
Now I’m not sure if you know, but I’m very fussy when it comes to what body products I like to use.Â I have been using body products from the US for such a long time that I haven’t been looking in my own backyard.Â Scents and creaminess of the products are very important to me, as well as not leaving a greasy residue on my skin.Â They can’t be too thick so they need to be easy to put on because I don’t have time to be rubbing it in, I’m on a mission to get ready and out the door as quickly as possible (I leave getting out of bed until the last possible minute).
Anyway, Planet Earth have a delicious range of bath and body products and although they aren’t as pretty as my favourite brand, I love their clean and simple packaging and more importantly their contents!
I have been using their body butters, body moisterisers and loofah body wash and I have to admit I’m a convert.Â The only negative is the scents, they are not as heavenly as I would like but my favourite would be the frangipani & vanilla body moisturiser.Â Initially when you put it on, you think, hmmmm but once it settles into your skin it gives you a lovely vanilla scent that is not overpowering.
I used both the butters and regular moisturiser and they have a brilliant texture that’s so easy to put on and leaves your skin with a succulent and silky feeling.Â The butters are great for those extra dry areas such as; hands, elbows, knees and heels as it helps to soften and smooth rough skin.Â And they don’t leave a greasy residue, yay.
There are three delicious combination’s available in the Body Butter including; Pomegranate & Frangipani to uplift and awaken, Coconut & Lime for a fresh subtle scent and Cocoa & Shea Butter for a decadent reminder of summer all year long and at $9.99 for 250ml, that’s a bargain because you don’t have to use stacks of it like the thinner creams on the market.
Planet Earth\’s range of Loofah Body Washes awakens the senses and gives your body a fresh clean feel. The Loofah Body Wash has little exfoliation particles to smooth rough skin (although I personally like a really good scrub to do this). I did find the body washes refreshing and I used the Frangipani & Vanilla and Lemongrass & Bamboo. When you’re using it though, because they are a bit runnier than I like, you have to turn the tube upside down before you open it otherwise it spills out everywhere before you get it to your shower puff.
Fragrances to choose from include; Cocoa, Frangipani & Vanilla, Coconut & Lime, Lemongrass & Bamboo, Musk & Rosewood or Pomegranate & Frangipani. And $7.99 for 375ml is a bargain.Â I think I would love to try the Musk & Rosewood scent (postscript, I just received the Musk & Rosewood and it’s my now favourite scent – love, love, love).
The Planet Earth range also has a hand cream range and gorgeous boxed sets available.
