Big Green Tree Lime Mandarin and Basil shea salt scrub review

Big Green Tree are a British company that make a range of natural body and skincare products.

Their Lime Mandarin and Basil shea salt scrub* is possibly one of the nicest smelling body products I've ever used (no exaggeration). I'm a big fan of the Jo Malone fragrance with the similar name, and this citrusy pot of goodness smells almost identical.

I've been using a small amount whilst in the shower a few times a week. The salt grains aren't too large, but still exfoliate well, and the shea butter means that skin is left feeling soft and moisturised, rather than the dry feeling I've had with some other body scrubs. It can make the shower a little slippy when you've rinsed it off though, so do be careful! You don't want to end up in A+E; although if you do, you will at least smell good!

This scrub contains no parabens, and is suitable for both vegans and vegetarians. The pot is pretty sturdy, and the labels are both oil and waterproof, so no worries about bits of paper in the shower!

A 350g pot of this scrub retails at £9.99, which I think is really great value. I will definitely be repurchasing this once my pot runs out! If you aren't a fan of citrusy scents, the scrub also comes in spiced Plum, Fig, Coconut and  Red Poppy and Ginger scents. You can buy all of these over at the Big Green Tree website

  1. Sounds lovely, I've been trying their facial serum and have been enjoying using it :)

  2. This looks fab. I might have to give this a try in the next couple of months x

  3. This sounds amazing, I might have to have a little body scrub time in the shower when I come to stay. ;) xx

  4. This sounds lovely, I am a HUGE fan of citrus cents!!


  5. I really like this brand, I am trying a shea body soufflé and some bath truffles and I am really loving them both, I have been eyeing this scent too though and will now definitely look into it. x
