Body scrubs – my winner!

scrub

Perhaps it will sound strange but I’ve actually never tried a body scrub before. Sometimes I used a face peeling for the whole body instead, but never a scrub. But you see, I have that habit that whenever my company introduces a new product, I have to test it first on my own skin, before I start recommending it to others. And that’s how I got to use a body scrub for the first time 😀

At the same time, coincidentally, I got a different scrub as a gift from my friend so I was testing both more or less at the same time. Also Colway International had one in their offer, so in the end I was testing THREE!!! 😀 One after another. All of them are rich in  very beneficial high quality oils and the skin felt amazing after application. What I loved most in all of them, was the fact that I didn’t have to apply a body lotion after taking a shower and the skin was silky soft in touch but it wasn’t oily at the same time.

I’ve tested these products:

At first, the choice was really hard. As I mentioned earlier all of those scrubs gave similar effects, all of them worked great as skin peelers and I liked the feeling of my skin afterwards. So lets have a closer look at each of them.

Purite scrub comes in a large glass jar (250ml), which is a big advantage, although you better don’t drop it in your bath, so be careful, it’s quite heavy. But I love the list of ingredients:

large_scrub-limon-sklep

  • Dead Sea salt
  • Sea Salt
  • Grape Seed Oil
  • Olive Oil
  • Shea Butter
  • Cocoa Butter
  • Avocado Oil
  • Green French clay
  • Lime Oil
  • Vitamin E
  • Mica

The smell is also gorgeous, very refreshing and pleasant. I loved it! Also you can choose among 4 different types of body scrubs from their shop, and I’m sure each one will give you a different but equally pleasurable sensation. Cost: €18.00 (250ml).

Colway International has recently improved their Body Scrub formula. It comes in a flat plastic jar (200ml). The list of active ingredients is a bit different here (instead of salt as a peeling ingredient, we have sugar!):

CI_bodyscrub

  • Sweet Almond Oil
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Avocado Oil
  • Shea Butter
  • Mango Butter
  • Extract of Bladderwrack
  • Sugar Cane

And as you can expect, the smell of this scrub is quite sweet. I can’t really get that smell although it says it’s raspberry-mint… Hmm… I have to test it again, perhaps it’s the new formula and the sensation will be a bit different. This scrub felt a bit heavy to me. Perhaps it’s the impression that I’m rubbing sugar into my skin, I don’t know 😉 but I also thought that, compared to the other two, this one seemed the “oiliest” of all. But the final sensation was also cool. There was no “wow” effect, but the scrub was doing its job perfectly. Cost: €42.95 (200ml) but you can get it 10% cheaper as a registered customer or 40% cheaper (so for €25.77) if you are a Partner of Colway International.

Colway Collagen Body Scrub is quite a new product by this company. And I think it is still rather underestimated. When I first tested it I was absolutely blown away! But slowly… So it comes in a very simple plastic jar (250ml) and the list of active ingredients looks like that:

scrub

  • Fukus Vesiculosus (brown algae)
  • Ivy
  • Guarana
  • Bitter Orange (Citrus aurantium)
  • Rosemary
  • Argan Oil
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Shea Butter (Karite)
  • Allantoin
  • Collagen
  • Vitamin E
  • Ground Cranberry Beans

What I love most in here? The smell and those cute little cranberry beans! But seriously, the smell is so captivating, that using this scrub is pure pleasure. I don’t know what kind of fragrance they added to this product, but can honestly say that I’m totally addicted. I can’t even describe it. It’s one of those products that you have to try for yourself to understand what I’m talking about. It’s a real experience! The skin afterwards is soft and moisturised, and it gets that fab silky gloss when you pat dry it with a towel. Besides it lasts! 😀 Cost: €35.00 (200ml) or 20% cheaper if you are a registered customer, or 42% cheaper (so €20.30) if you are a Manager of Colway.

Now, if I were to give an objective opinion… I know how it sounds… I’ve been with Colway for the past 5 years!… But seriously, I’m past that phase when you are trying to sell something no matter what (actually when I think about it, I’ve never had that phase… hmm… ) Well, so, believe it or not, but this IS an objective opinion. The winner to me is the Colway Collagen Body Scrub. Why? Because it gave me that “WOW” sensation and I loved my skin most after using this product. And also, because I’ve had a rather long break since I last used any of those scrubs, and I was thinking about it recently, and guess which one came to my mind first? Yep! Exactly. So the choice is obvious.

  1. Colway Collagen Body Scrub
  2. Purite Salt Lime Peel Scrub
  3. Colway International Body Scrub

Now, whether you base your choice on price, or ingredients, or the sensation the use of the product gives you, you can decide by yourself. All three will work great on your skin, leaving it silky soft in touch, perfectly moisturised and enriched with beneficial plant ingredients and vitamins. And you can forget about the body lotion afterwards. You don’t have to worry that your clothes will get oily (I had that fear myself before the first use), they won’t. And I ensure you, once you try an oil-based body scrub, you won’t want anything else!

Amazing properties of Shea Butter

Shea butter is an aromatic fat obtained from Karite tree seeds which occur naturally in the dry African savanna, from Senegal to Ethiopia. The tree begins to bear fruit only after 30-40 years. Therefore, there is very few plantations. Typically, Shea butter is extracted from wild plants.

It is widely used in Africa, not only as edible fats. It is used without admixtures as an ointment against stretch marks and in baby skin care, for massage of aching muscles and as a treatment for skin irritations. Shea butter is also a natural conditioner for dry, friable, split hair.

Ultra-Moisturizing Collagen Body BalmIt moisturizes and oils the skin well. It is rich in important nutrients, vitamins and other phytonutrients with therapeutic properties. Derivatives of cinnamon acid have a huge influence over the properties of this butter. These compounds have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, and even prevent the development of cancer. Especially high amount of vitamins A, E and F in Shea butter provides the skin with essential ingredients needed to maintain smoothness, firmness and healthy radiant colour. The use of Shea Butter accelerates the process of healing wounds, irritations and inflammatory conditions of sunburn. It does not cause allergy. It is perfectly tolerated by all skin types because the combination of fatty acids contained in it, resembles the composition of the stratum corneum.

It contains the following active substances:
• Saturated fatty acids such as:
Palmitic acid (2-6%) and stearic acid (35-45%).
• Unsaturated fatty acids such as:
Oleic acid (40-50%) and linoleic (4-10%).
• Polyphenols such as:
Gallic acid, gallatanine, quercetin, trans cinnamic acid.

Thanks to its properties it is gaining popularity in cosmetology. It is used as an ingredient in the production of creams, lotions, make-up cosmetics, sunblocks, shampoos and cleansing gels.

Shea butter is a component of the Ultra-Moisturising Collagen Body Lotion, where carefully selected ingredients perfectly restore the comfort of dry and even very dry skin. They soothe irritations, eliminate discomfort of skin tightening and peeling of the skin. The skin becomes smoother, soft and enveloped by a pleasant feeling of comfort.

Trust the results of application research and use this amazing product that will help you take care of your whole body.

It is available in our Irish online shop.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! ❤

dr Slon’s Elixir

New arrival everyone! Spray with nanosilver. Sounds familiar? Well…

unnamed

This product is a brand new introduction in Colway and you know what I love most about it? It has only 3 (THREE) ingredients (INCI)! : Aqua, Oxygen, Silver (nano). That’s all! And it is an extremely powerful product for treating skin prone to irritations, being very gentle and safe to use at the same time.

Silver has been known since the Middle Ages, not only as desirable precious metal but also for its strong bactericidal effect. Silver compounds are toxic to bacteria, viruses and fungi. They had been used to prevent infection, long before antibiotics were invented. Silver (axonnite) used in this product is manufactured in accordance with strict ISO 13485, intended for medical products.

A few words from dr Slon – the creator of this product:

This elixir has been studied in microbiological laboratories. Due to its biocidal effectiveness incomparable with other products based on silver, tests have been repeated two or three times on own initiative of the people who investigated the substance and could not believe in its huge effectiveness.

The study was conducted in relation to five types of “popular” bacteria and two types of fungi. In all cases the results were identical: 100% of bacteria and fungi colonies have been destroyed. The glass dish on which the bacteria were grown was completely free of microorganisms.

You can use it not only on your face, but also on the whole body, even on gentle membranes, spray into your mouth or nose, when you have a bacterial or fungal infection. I have tried it on myself, my husband and my 7-year old daughter and they are all fine, so I confirm it’s safe to use.

Application method: Spray the Elixir directly onto irritated skin and leave to dry. If necessary, repeat the treatment several times a day.

Available to buy from our Irish online shop Active Natural Collagen.

Body scrub which will make you WOW!

I have been testing this body scrub for some time now and what I can say in one word is simply: Terrific!

Why?

  • First of all, I love it’s consistency and the fragrance of figs and rhubarb. Delicately sweet but not overwhelming. To me, just right.
  • Secondly, when you towel-dry your skin, it still feels as if you’ve just had a professional body SPA treatment. Seriously, guys, your skin feels like as if you’ve just treated it with a fantastic moisturiser, it’s SO soft and velvety delicate in touch. It reminds me of my daughter’s skin when she was a little baby. There’s no need to apply a body lotion afterwards. I absolutely love it!
  • The list of active ingredients is also impressive and the little exfoliating bits which are of natural origin too; these are: peach stone and coconuts particles – great choice Colway!

Now let’s see what the website says about active ingredients:

SWEET ALMOND OIL – ensures skin firmness and elasticity, slows down the ageing processes, facilitates cell renewal and blood circulation in the skin.

CANE SUGAR – cleanses the skin thoroughly and removes dead cells without causing irritation or allergic reactions.

BLADDER WRACK EXTRACT – abounds in bioelements such as magnesium, potassium, amino acids, polyphenols, vitamins C and B; it demonstrates strong moisturising, nourishing and protective properties. It enhances elasticity and firmness, strengthens the walls of capillary vessels and removes swelling. It revitalises the skin and restores its hydro-lipid balance.

You can also register on that website either as a Customer or as a Partner and get a discount for all your purchases:
