If you, like me, are obsessed with anything coconut scented, prepare to fall in love. I was lucky enough to receive a sample of the Ziaja Coconut Body Butter in a goodie bag from a recent meetup (more on that later! :)).
Although I am cuckoo for coconuts, I did not have any more coconut body butter in my arsenal. Or so I thought, until I remembered this bad boy.
So when I spotted it waiting for me when I got out of the shower, I obviously had to try it out. When I opened the container all I could think was OH MY EFFIN GOD. Of all the coconut bits and pieces I have sniffed in my time, this has got to be one of the best. As soon as I got the thing open, I had to start slapping it on.
For those who don’t know, Ziaja are a Polish skincare brand that do everything from body butters and scrubs, to eye serums and cleansing milks. They even have a men’s range that includes antiperspirants and aftershaves. Most importantly though, they do all these things for next to nothing!
The above body butter will only set you back €7.99 for a 200ml tub of coconutty goodness. How could you not?
The scent is not the only thing this body butter has going for it. The consistency is unbelievably creamy. When I applied it, I wasn’t left with a greasy feeling and it dried in quickly. The few bits of dry skin that I did have, are now lovely, soft and supple feeling once again.
It is rich in Omega 3, Omega 6 and Vitamin E which I’m not going to claim to understand fully, but it sure sounds good!
All in all, I am pretty impressed with this and just wish I had tried Ziaja sooner. They were unbelievably generous to all the ladies who attended the blogger meetup so I have another few bits from them to try out. Judging by this, I am expecting good things. If I think any of the other bits are worth mentioning, I will let you guys know!
In the meantime, if you want to try this out you can pick it up from originalbeauty.ie for €7.99. I SMELL AMAZING RIGHT NOW and think I’ll have to purchase some myself when I have powered through this tub. Which shouldn’t take long :).
Until next time!
