It's no secret that I am such a huge fan of Okoko Cosmetiques. The line truly is exquisite and it only gets better and better! This weekend I had the pleasure of collaborating with Oyeta the founder and had the chance to try the beautiful Limited Edition Tresor Smoothing Body Scrub & Shimmering Body Oil. This duo was launched for a very short period of time and I consider myself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to try them out.
From the moment you open the container of the scrub your senses are completely enveloped by a beautiful scent that is both sensual and feminine. It is a decadent rose coloured cream scrub that is just gorgeous! I placed my nose right up to it and allowed myself to really breathe in the wonderful aroma. The scent really is unique and is not overwhelming. I applied a small amount from the on various areas of my body as indicated on dry skin before my shower. A little does go a long way and the nice little bamboo spoon provided gives you the perfect amount to apply.
I used a slightly damp washcloth to spread it over my entire body and massaged it from my neck all the way down to my toes. The granules are all natural walnut shells which feel invigorating and aren't overly abrasive. This is ideal for exfoliating dead cells and smoothing rough patches of skin. The texture became like a rich milky scrub as the base is black soap which is very nourishing. I also noticed that it helped to stimulate circulation because I felt my skin become slightly warm. Stimulating circulation is so important to regenerate new cells and help with detoxification and oxygenation. I did leave it on for about 5 minutes total while I was massaging so that the ingredients could really soak in.
When I was rinsing it off in the shower I could instantly feel how supple and smooth my skin felt.
Tresor adds a lot of moisture and antioxidants with precious oils such as argan oil which is highly hydrating and repairing with high levels of Vitamin E. When I got out of the shower, which by the way felt like a spa because of the lovely aromatherapy Tresor delivers, I applied the Gold Shimmering Oil to my body. It has the same scent which I'm so happy about because it feels like a really beautiful perfume oil for my body. It absorbed into my skin very quickly and left a very subtle glow to my skin which I adore. My skin feels soft, smooth and very silky after this treatment. I think I will be using this oil for special occasions because it's so lovely and I know it is only a limited edition. I am so happy to have it for Valentine's week!
Overall Okoko Cosmetiques has proven to me once again that you truly can experience luxurious and decadent spa treatments at home using the world's finest ingredients to indulge your skin and body in.
