Review: VOYA’s Time to Shine Body Buff

Hey Guys,

Today I have another exciting review for you. I was recently very kindly sent a new body scrub from VOYA organic beauty to try out.

Who? What? Where?

For those of you who are unfamiliar with this company, VOYA is an irish family owned business which began in 1912 when the first seaweed baths opened in Strandhill, Co.Sligo here in Ireland. Their mantra is to use the “full power of nature in its purest forms throughout their range with integrity and harmony with nature“…and what more could you want from a beauty business?! Their dedication most definitely reflects in the quality of their products. I felt very luxurious using this scrub. It conjured up a scent which is pretty indescribable… I’ll just say a cross between fancy spa and a beach scent…make sense??

Now while most girls  search for the perfect guy…or job …etc…I have always been on the search for THE perfect body scrub. I’ve searched high and low for a scrub that exfoliated but didn’t irritate my skin. I have found some pretty good contenders however, not one has matched this new body scrub.

What makes it so good??

What it says on the packaging: “Our dual action lathering body buff, exfoliates with finely ground seaweed and walnut shells and nourishes your skin with a blend of almond oil, seaweed and ginger extracts. This gentle yet effective formula buffs away dry flaky skin to reveal smoother, softer skin”. I normally don’t like to quote the packaging of a product but I felt that they pretty much summed the product up so nicely that I actually struggled to do it better myself.  What I will say though, is that unlike all the other scrubs I have tried, this scrub is actually designed with sensitive skin in mind.This scrub is absolutely awesome for sensitive skin…the grains are not too large and are made from natural ingredients such as finely ground walnut shells and seaweed flakes so they aren’t too harsh or abrasive.

Swatch of the scrub

As with all VOYA products this scrub contains seaweed which has been know for not only its anti-ageing benefits but also contains a multitude of vital vitamins such as B1,B2, B12, Zinc, Iodine etc. The scrub also contains almond oil and ginger extract which work together to not only nourish your skin but also give you that glowy healthy look.

This scrub boasts  four main aims:

  • to exfoliate your skin
  • to stimulate your skin
  • to firm your skin
  • to promote cell renewal.

I’m not too great with the sciencey shizz.. but what I do know is that this scrub has definitely works DAYUM well on my skin. I’ve been using it for about 2weeks now and my skin already feels softer, smoother and dare I say…a tad firmer?! …With results like that after just 2weeks… I’m expecting a completely new body soon!… *wishful thinking* 😉

Mmmmm

Sold yet?? If so, you’re gonna need all the vital details:

Price is 29 yo yos for 200ml of product (teensy bit pricey but completely worth it in my opinion).

Product is available all around Ireland and good news to all my international chummies… they ship overseas too!!. All stock and shipping info is on their website http://www.voya.ie/where you can also purchase any of their products online too….happy days!:)

Overall I have adored this product. My search for the perfect scrub is now complete and we can go live happily ever after…and have half body scrub/half human babies… too far??… perhaps.. :/ ha!

Thanks for reading guys, I have more reviews in the pipeline so do keep your eyes peeled for them! If you have any questions about this scrub or VOYA itself, please do leave me a comment below or feel free to leave me a message on my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/sleepingbootaykate or email me privately at sleepingbootay@yahoo.ie

Until next time, Bye Kx:)
