Winter Dry Skin Buster!

It is no secret that I LOVE the Victorian Garden Skincare products. I have been using their products for almost two years now, and I am still delighted by it! As winter is a time when many of us struggle with dry skin, I thought it best to give you my “dry skin buster combo” for winter. The Mango & Vanilla Scrub and Body Butter smells incredible, and is so effective, it is no wonder that these two products are a popular choice for Spas. The prestigious Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town, is one of the many spas who have been using the Victorian Garden products for years. So, do feel like a Spa Treatment? Here’s where to start!

The Victorian Garden – African Indigenous Mango & Vanilla Salt Body Scrub

A rich cream body scrub formulated especially to remove dead skin cells and improve skin texture. Natural salt, sugar and crushed rosehips provide an excellent exfoliation medium, stimulating the lymphatic system and helping to detoxify the tissues and regenerate the skin. Fragranced with gorgeous Madagascan Vanilla and enriched with African Mango extract, this scrub can be used daily and leaves the skin feeling and looking silky and polished. This is one of their most popular Spa and beauty salon products, used also by therapists for manicure and pedicure treatments. It is suitable for all skin types. Suitable for All Skin Types

Retails for about R110

This is my ultimate favourite body scrub! It is so gentle, but very effective. When I started using it, I could see the results almost immediately. Afterwards, I debated whether I should apply lotion/body butter or not, as my skin was so soft and nourished from using the scrub. I try to use it at least once a week, but it is gentle enough to use every day! (It comes with a warning, you might get addicted to the amazing feeling afterwards!)

The Victorian Garden – African Indigenous Range: Mango & Vanilla Hydrating Body Butter

As a top seller, this very rich Body Butter is an excellent choice to nourish and nurture dry skin. Shea Butter is blended with active botanical extracts of Wheat germ, Jojoba and Geranium. The exquisite scent of Madagascan Vanilla makes this butter a must for those suffering with dry, scaly and itchy skin. This body butter is also popular with beauty therapists and for use on dry cracked feet and nails. Suitable for All Skin Types, especially Dry Skin.

Retails for about R120


This Body Butter is the ultimate indulgence! The butter and scrub smells exactly the same, so to me it feels like I am layering myself in this gorgeous fragrance.  It says on the packaging that it takes 20 minutes to absorb properly, but in my case, my skin just soaked it up and there was no need to wait. The smell lasted a long time, and in the morning I could still smell it! (In fact, it made my pajamas smell like yummy, fruity cupcakes!)

If you are looking for a treat this winter, try these two body products. Your skin will love you for it!
