In our third installment of the Indie brand Gift guide series I am giddy with excitement to talk about The Cottage Greenhouse. I don’t remember how I found the brand..maybe I saw them in an Indie beauty brand list but I do remember getting super excited when I visited their website! They have the most beautifully and aesthetically done packaging :). I also had an ah ha moment because guess what, this brand is part of the Margot Elena group of brands. I have always had a girl crush on Margot Elena because of how beautifully she presents her products and the attention to details, which makes the perfectionist side of me really happy. Her brands like Tokyo Milk, Library of Flowers and Lollia all have products perfect for gifting. In fact, my next installment in the gift guide series is also going to be a Margot Elena brand 😉 Stay tuned for that one too!
The Cottage Greenhouse has a lovely range of lotions, body butters and scrubs which are perfect for pampering yourself or a favorite person in your gift list 😀 I picked up 2 of their fine salt body scrubs to feature in this gift guide series.
The Carrot and Neroli fine salt scrub is listed as one of Oprah’s favorites 🙂 The scent of this body scrub is fresh and crisp. This is a bit of a summer scent to me so I’ll probably dig into this scrub in the summer time! The scent of the Wild Ginger and Agave scrub actually surprised me. I was expecting a very spicy woody scent but instead it is best described as being warm and sweet. It feels very invigorating and cozy at the same time to use this in the shower. It is the perfect companion for a nice warm winter bath.
As I mentioned a million times already, I love the packaging! It is so elegant and the plastic square tubs have a good weight to them and feel expensive. I also like the little details in the illustrations and the details around the tub. Unfortunately, I do not have the beautiful exterior packaging these scrub came in…I have a toddler in the house who sometimes runs off with stuff which you might then never see again 😀
These are fine salt scrubs so they are not going to feel ‘crunchy’ or rough when you rub them over your damp skin. They are creamy to the touch and have enough exfoliating power to leave your skin feeling smooth.
They also have moisturizing ingredients like shea butter in them so your skin does not feel totally stripped after exfoliating. The ingredient list for both the scrubs is slightly different (obviously). Check out the full list of ingredients on their website. (HERE)
Overall, I am very impressed with the salt scrubs. I would love to try their body butters next! Have you tried any products from the cottage greenhouse?
Until next time,ciao!!!
