CURRENT BODY SKINCARE ROUTINE: FEATURING GAIA SKIN+BODY, PINK GRAPEFRUIT & JASMINE BODY WASH + MOISTURISER REVIEW!

HEY BEAUTIES! 

Currently trending with my daily skin care routine is the GAIA Bodycare range in Pink Grapefruit and Jasmine Body wash and Moisturiser. (Ah...the scent of Jasmine and Pink Grapefruit is simply divine!) 

It was my first time trying out a new brand for my body-care necessities, and I am pleased to introduce you guys to what I thought of the brand GAIA SKIN+BODY which feature a range of simple and natural skin care and body products. Most of the ingredients present in their products are mostly organic, natural and looks to target every day skin concerns for all skin types out there. This includes those with sensitive and even dry skin which is perfect for anyone really to use on their skin. Their body care range looks to hydrate and improve skin without causing any redness or irritations at all which is an important aspect to this brand. I also noticed that the products are free from any artificial fragrance, are chemical free and are all naturally scented with pure oil blends. 

Just a little run-down of who GAIA is..they are located in Hallam, Victoria where they look to manufacture pure, natural and organic skin care products. They are also best known for the formula used in their products which is also ideal for those with sensitive skin at such an affordable price. None of the ingredients present in the product cause any skin irritations to the user of the product which is an important factor to always consider when shopping for skin and body care products. There are no sulphates, petrochemicals, lanolin, paraben preservatives or any other artificial fragrances present in their products. They are super friendly and gentle to use on the skin and it's guaranteed that in the long-run from using these products that it will not look to harm your health at all. 

GAIA SKIN+BODY BODY WASH - PINK GRAPEFRUIT + JASMINE REVIEW

The GAIA Skin+Body Body wash in Pink Grapefruit and Jasmine is super gentle and does not even look to strip the oils off your skin. It was a pleasant experience using the body wash in the shower because the smell was quite refreshing and lovely to my senses. Whilst using the body wash, I felt that it left my skin feeling really clean and fresh - and alternatively you can also use this in a running bath to create a bubble bath experience to the smell of fresh grapefruit and jasmine! 

Additionally, the body wash contains NO parabens, sulphates, lanolin or any other artificial fragrances. Everything in the product seems natural and very gentle to use on the skin. It also contains extracts of ginkgo biloba, ginseng and chamomile which really calms your senses and is so ideal to use after a long and stressful day at work. I usually look forward to having a shower with this body wash because I know it's going to be one relaxing session! It also contains organic avocado, evening primrose (organic) and wheat germ oils (also organic) which simply softens the skin by making it feel more healthier and supple. What is also great is that it also contains Vitamin E and omega 3 oils which is so essential if you are looking to keep your skin healthy and very nourished. 

I really love how this body wash is not too perfumed and the smell is so unique as well. I don't think I have seen a mix of pink grapefruit and jasmine before (If there is, please do let me know!). The body wash creates a nice lather when mixed with a sponge so it is not too hard to create a lather using this product. After using the body wash, my skin felt super squeaky clean and so nourished. I am amazed by how the GAIA Body Wash has benefited my skin and the fact that it did not even dry out my skin makes this product even more ideal to consider as a long-term product for my shower needs. 

The Body wash is presented in a 250ml plastic bottle equipped with a flip top lid for a convenient way to open the product whilst showering. 

Overall, through using the body wash, it was quite a refreshing and relaxing experience because the scent is seriously irresistible and what better way to achieve healthier lookign skin. I love both grapefruit and jasmine and so when we combine both amazing ingredients, it really creates a wonderful fragrant product that's all natural and without any artificial fragrances being added. Plus... a little goes a long way for this body wash. 

GAIA SKIN+BODY BODY MOISTURISER - PINK GRAPEFRUIT + JASMINE REVIEW

The GAIA SKIN+BODY Body moisturiser in Pink Grapefruit and Jasmine looks to keep and make your skin feel super nourished, soft and healthy looking. It's been infused with the organic oils of rosehip and wheat germ, organic calendula and gingseng extracts. These are definitely organic and ideal products that can look to make your skin feel much healthier and smoother of course. It's so ideal for those with dry to normal to combination looking skin because the hydration factor on this product is on point. After using this body moisturiser after showering - I felt that my skin was super hydrated and very moisturised. The product also looks to enhance elasticity of the skin and also even out the skin tone over more frequent applications of the product. 

Again, the Body Moisturiser by GAIA is free from any parabens, sulphates and any other nasties which can potentially harm your health. So essentially, this is definitely another safe and gentle product to use in the long run if you're looking for a safe alternative for your skin.

The Body Moisturiser is presented in a 250ml plastic bottle equipped with a flip top lid for a convenient way to open the product whilst showering. 

Additionally, the body moisturiser looks to reduce the flakiness on the skin as it softens it at the same time. My skin felt very nourished after using and I am so pleased with the overall results so far. There's a light texture to the moisturiser so therefore it did not feel too heavy or uncomfortable for the skin which was amazing. It did not even make my skin feel too sticky which is good because I always love to use products that won't leave my skin feeling sticky at night or even during the mornings. 

As for the scent itself featuring the pink grapefruit and jasmine, it's a really refreshing and natural scent to it which I don't mind at all. It's not too overpowering for a body moisturiser which is a positive aspect for me. 

MY OVERALL THOUGHTS

Both products were used on my skin over a three week period and so far my skin has remained as soft as ever. I make sure to use the body wash and body moisturiser twice a day and during the morning and evenings. I have faced no irritations or redness after using both products and I really felt that it was truly a gentle and safe product to use. So therefore it's definitely a brand that I would highly recommend to those looking for an affordable and gentle skincare range for their body and skin needs. The plastic bottles with the flip top lid are simply easy and convenient to use and there's nothing complicated about the products itself. It's such a great deal to get for your daily necessities!
