There is nothing more appealing to me than a skin care kit and today I am going to show you a brand that I have tried previously and loved, yet this time round it is a full kit that caters for your full body.
Dermalogica Body Therapy Skin Kit is free of artificial fragrances and colours and says that it is meant to give you the feel of a home spa like experience with giving your skin that healthy look and feel.
This can be bought from The salon look for £25.50
Baring in mind that this is a kit , the products are smaller than you would normally buy if they were bought seperately on their own .
I think this would be ideal for holidays and trips away.
In this kit you will receive -
Water (Aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Lauramide DEA, Glycol Distearate, Steareth-4,Quillaja Saponaria Bark Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract, Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Lavandula Hybrida Oil, Amyris Balsamifera Bark Oil, Cedrus Atlantica (Cedarwood) Bark Oil, Salvia Sclarea (Clary) Oil, Pogostemon Cablin Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Citric Acid, Butylene Glycol, Quaternium-75, Sodium PCA, Benzyl Alcohol, Panthenol, Methyl Gluceth-20, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Tetrasodium EDTA, Limonene, Linalool.
For me, I like a body wash to be refreshing with some sort of zesty scent to it.
This Conditioning Body Wash is exactly that and with it being soap free it is perfect for those who struggle with drying skin which is exactly what happens to me when I use soap.
Using soap dries out my skin terribly and therefore I have not used soaps for my body for many years now as it strips all my natural oils that keep my skin feeling soft and hydrated.
You can really enjoy a conditioning cleanse with this body wash and with the aroma of lemon, Tea tree and rosemary , your skin is left feeling clean and purified.
I love a good lather and this is perfect to use with a shower puff which I use to get the most of my products and saving me a fortune as I do not need a lot of product to get a full body coverage.
I would definitely buy this full size, I also love that you can add this into your bath under running water for a bath soak too.
Water (Aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Polyethylene, Glycerin, Zea Mays (Corn) Cob Meal, PPG-2 Hydroxyethyl Coco/Isostearamide, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Husk Powder, Ficus Carica (Fig) Powder, Phoenix Dactylifera (Date) Seed, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Papain, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Starch, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Lavandula Hybrida Oil, Amyris Balsamifera Bark Oil, Cedrus Atlantica (Cedarwood) Bark Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Oil, Pogostemon Cablin Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Salvia Sclarea (Clary) Oil, Chlorphenesin, Benzyl Alcohol, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Linalool, Limonene, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Butylene Glycol, Ethylparaben, Sorbitan Stearate, Butylparaben, Aminomethyl Propanol, Tetrasodium EDTA, Isobutylparaben, Propylparaben, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).
In this kit you only get a small amount compared to the conditioning body wash and body hydrating cream which is 3 times bigger than this so I was a little gutted to say the least for that.
However the exfoliating body scrub feels so creamy and does give a very slight foaming effect on the skin .
I do not find that this has a great amount of exfoliation texture to it as I like.
I like my scrubs to feel like a scrub ,but with the natural scents of lavander coming through , my skin smells invigorating .
I actually think this has a masculine scent slightly which is great for my husband who is in dyer need of this .
I would not buy this for myself though in full size , although those who love natural scrubs would love this because it leaves your skin feeling amazing and soft.
Sodium Chloride, Macrocystis Pyrifera (Kelp), Essential Oils of: Santalum Album (Sandalwood), Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange), Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender), Cedrus Atlantica (Cedarwood) Bark, Amyris Balsamifera Bark, Salvia Sclarea (Clary), Pogostemon Cablin, Cananga Odorata Flower, Lavandula Hybrida, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf; Silybum Marianum Powder, Coriandrum Sativum (Coriander) Powder, Eugenia Caryophyllus Powder, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Powder, Ilex Paraguariensis Powder, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon Bioflavonoids) Peel Powder, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Powder, Salvia Officinalis Leaf Powder, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Powder, Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Powder, Berberis Vulgaris Powder, Cinnamomum Zeylanicum Bark Powder, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Starch, Tapioca Starch, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Flour, Papain, PPG-5-Ceteth-20, Limonene, Linalool.
This makes your bath very soothing and relaxing .
I used this in my bath after a weekend in the sun, My body was so tired and aching , I just wanted to unwind and sleep well.
As stress reducing bath soak is always in need in my home. If you ask my husband he will tell you how much I love the smell of cinnamon and ginger and these come through amazingly with this product.
It made me feel so at ease and I did not want to get out , actually felt myself falling asleep.
When I got out from the bath my skin felt so soft and looked polished and I would actually like to get the full size product and use it as a body scrub.
Loved this .

I love to use a full body cream after my wash and this goes very well with the conditioning body wash.
The scent is very similar but less vibrant. You can smell the zesty orange but it wears of after a while .
For me, this is something I would not usually wear due to the fact that it feels more of a milk and not as thick as I would like.
My skin gets very thirsty , quite greedy actually , so I like my creams to be thicker. This cream does leave your skin feeling baby soft though just not as nourishing to my skin needs.

I am so pleased to have the full size product in this kit. I love lip balms, simple as that. I use them all the time , more so in the summer as my lips tend to dry out and not just me the whole family and also the winter.
The past month as the weather has changed and I have had sore lips due to climate change . I have been using this for a week now and already my lips feel great. The barrier is protecting my lips from being damaged any more and also helped them stay soft and nourished .
My husband has also had a great response to this product, he loves that it is not one of those girly lip balms with a sweet fruity scent to it, instead it has a slight spa aroma of natural oils but to me I can not smell it so much , which is also great meaning I wont be licking my lips doing more harm to them .
So my conclusion to this kit , is that I actually think this is great for those who travel or stay away from home alot.
I love the fact that this kit is for every skin type and although , I was not keen on the body cream nor was the texture of the scrub to my liking , but the salts, lip balm and body wash was an amazing spa experience in my own home.
I love the natural essential oils that are listed in these products as individuals and that the aroma is refreshing .
This kit is great if you have not tried this brand, it gives you a test of some of the products and the price is actually not that bad .
I would definitely recommend the lip balm , body wash and the sea salts . The sea salts seem to be my most favourite of the range and I will be buying the full size product to use it as a scrub also.
Love this kit.
Have you tried this brand, what do you like most about it?

2/6/2014 08:54:42 am

3/6/2014 01:21:16 pm
i wont say its rough like sandpaper but it is a nice scrub i just like harsher texture x
2/6/2014 10:57:19 am
They look great, I love the sound of the bath stuff x
2/6/2014 01:04:41 pm
Sounds like a great set of products. I'm not a huge fan of body scrubs but like the sound of the cream.

These look brilliant - I am also a big fan of cinnamon and ginger. I'm always on the look out for good skincare products so will definitely give them a try.
2/6/2014 02:28:28 pm
I haven't managed to try much Dermalogica, but this sounds like a good price for it I might just have to treat myself.
2/6/2014 02:37:14 pm
I've never tried Dermologica, mainly because of the price, but I have heard how fabulous it is.
3/6/2014 01:24:04 pm
they can be pricey for full sizes , would be nice to be more affordable x
2/6/2014 02:58:10 pm
These look good but a little pricey for me :( I prefer to buy products separately as I can get exactly what im after in each product. However as you said this would make a great box set for traveling or holiday and sounds like there are some great products within the box!
2/6/2014 03:46:07 pm
Great detailed review, thank you - makes me think I should find some pamper time just for me!
2/6/2014 04:12:23 pm
Ooooh my sister used to do beauty and done me some amazing facials with Dermologica products!! This kit sounds fab!
3/6/2014 06:17:02 am
Ek, how much product did you have left of the scrub after that photograph
3/6/2014 07:32:54 am
I put it into a potting tub after this still got tiny bit left but the tub was tiny and for only being a small tube for the full body theres not much use you can get from it after one or two used , well i didnt x
3/6/2014 01:26:56 pm
The mineral salts sound wonderful. I'll have to look at getting some of them :)
3/6/2014 01:44:45 pm
This looks like a good set of products. Thanks for sharing.
4/6/2014 05:23:04 pm
A very thorough review - this set sounds ideal as a gift idea.
