Afternoon tea is an indulgence that we all love. It brings a sense of decadence and luxury to a beautiful tradition. As a busy mother trying to run her own business, luxury isn’t something I have a lot of time to enjoy, so that offer of a beauty product that combines skincare with afternoon tea seemed too good to turn down.
The SPAfternoon Tea Collection from Cognito Bath & Body is a beautiful handmade range of products that draws on all the favourite flavours from an afternoon tea. The flavours include Lemon Drizzle, Victoria Sponge, Eton Mess, Chocolate Orange Truffle, Prosecco & Strawberry, Gin & Tonic, Fruit Cup/Pimm’s and Peppermint Tea. I got to sample the Cucumber Sandwiches Body Scrub.
The packaging consists of a silver tin with beautiful, vintage-inspired labels, making it a pretty addition to your bathroom shelves. I was expecting a faint whiff of something generic, but the scent is actually a deliciously refreshing hit of cucumber and lime.
The scrub itself goes a long-way due to the intensity of the ingredients, and the scent lingers for some time after. My skin was left feeling soft and invigorated, and the product was almost as much of a treat as an afternoon tea itself.
Now I just need to try the rest of the flavours!
The Cucumber Sandwiches Body Scrub retails at £11.99 and is available from www.cognitospa.co.uk.
