I’ve been aware of Posh Brats for a long long time now and lusted after many of the products but for some reason I hadn’t got round to placing an order. All products are made in their own workshops in Cheshire and products are all cruelty Free, responsibly sourced and make use of natural ingredients from UK suppliers. And lets not forget the scent list. Good lord, I think maybe actually that might have been one of the reasons I’d not placed an order, I couldn’t decide what to try from the lengthy and quite frankly amazing scent list.
I was absolutely delighted when they got in touch and asked if I’d like to try out some of the products. Oh yes you bet I would. I was asked what kind of scents I like but given the problems I have make making decisions I decided to leave it up to them what they sent!
And here’s what arrived.
Tuscan Olive Castile Shampoo, Butterfly Nectar Body Creme (sample size), Shakespeare’s Quill whipped sugar scrub and pineapple smoothie fizzy bath bomb. All in all, a good sample of the different products and scents available.
I’m going to start by talking about the Shakespeare’s Quill Whipped Sugar Scrub £7.
Oh my god. I die. This is amazing. Certainly this scent won’t be for everyone, but it is for me! Firstly, the scrub is formulated with moisturizing butters, natural scents, british sugars and exotic oils. This is not harsh and it doesn’t leave you coated in oil either. In short this is perfect. It lathers gently and and moisturises and leaves skin smooth. But the scent. Described as Aged Parchment, dust, old wood, red wine, black pomegranate and ancient book leather. For me I get leather and wood, not so much red wine or pomegranate. It is divine. Makes a wonderful base for Jo Malone’s Earl Grey and Cucumber Cologne I might add.
Next up, the Tuscan Olive Oil Castile Shampoo £5. Unfortunately this wasn’t for me. Designed for dry hair, but apparently suitable for all, this just wasn’t my cup of tea, scent wise or performance wise. I’m not put off though, I’m rather fancying the sound of the Poison Apple Vitamin Shampoo and Raven Moon Vitamin Shampoo. I think it was the Olive Oil I wasn’t so keen on.
Next the Pineapple Smoothie Fizzy Bath Bomb £2.25. Gorgeous. Gorgeous! Bright yellow, fizzy and pure sweet pineapple scent. Farewell Lush. I found a cheaper more fabulous brand thank you very much. I rather have my heart set on trying out the Pistachio Gelato Bath Bomb!
Finally the Butterfly Nectar Body Creme Sample. For a sample this is very generous, especially given how little product you need. The formula is beautiful. It spreads easily, you need very little, it’s strongly scented so you can still smell it on your skin hours after application, but it doesn’t leave you greasy. This isn’t on the site at the moment sadly, but there is a Whipped Sugar Scrub in this scent. The scent is beautiful. Vanilla Sugar, Vanilla Bean, apricot, ginger flowers and plumeria blossom. It’s glorious, but very very sweet. Almost the exact opposite of the Shakespeare’s Quill scent.
All in all, shampoo aside, I’m so delighted with everything I’ve tried. So delighted I’m filling a shopping basket to place an order as I type (flitting between blogging and shopping). There’s going to have to be some editing of my basket though because so far I’ve got BooBoo Baby Cakes Whipped Sugar Scrub, Bubblegum Boudoir Whipped Sugar Scrub, Butterfly Nectar Whipped Sugar Scrub, Dea Lacrimea~Goddess Tears Whipped Sugar Scrub, Fudge Ripple Ice Cream Whipped Sugar Scrub, Lupercalia Whipped Sugar Scrub, Pistachio Gelato Whipped Sugar Scrub, Magic Mushroom Whipped Sugar Scrub, Ocean Mist Soap Cloud, Old West pine tar Soap, don’t even get me started on the fragrance oils, or the fact that they stock the fabulous Villainess products (if you’ve not heard of them, google!).
All in all a thoroughly enjoyable experience and one that will without a doubt have me returning time and time again for more gorgeous smellies. There’s certainly a scent for everyone and the products are good quality.
Highly recommended. Do head over and have a look at www.poshbrats.com.
