I’m someone whose skin can get dull very easily if not taken care of. Especially the skin on my body. I purchased the PHB Ethical Beauty Brightening Body Care Gift Set Duo from Love Lula which includes the PHB Brightening Body Wash & Brightening Body Lotion.

There is 250ml of the Brightening Body Wash and 250ml of the Brightening Body Lotion. It details for £22.50. It’s on the affordable side of natural products. PHB Ethical Beauty are generally a more affordable brand.

Because it was more affordable I had little faith in the product doing any actual brightening if I’m being honest.

The Brightening Body Wash

This was really nice to use. It lathers nicely and comes in a pump bottle which is useful.

It smells citrusy so really enjoyable to use in summer. And it really wakes up your skin.

I like using this with an exfoliating glove to remove dead skin and brighten up the new skin at the same time.

It’s a nice body wash to use after working out. It wakes up and revitalises your skin and works against body acne which can appear after a sweaty session at the gym.

The Brightening Body Lotion

This light moisturiser is perfect for summer. It’s a milky consistency. It’s a nice alternative to oil in the hotter months but in winter I imagine I’ll need something more moisturising.

It also dries quickly so I don’t get left with any transfer on my clothing.

The heat wave in London at the moment plus me being pregnant is such a bad combo for me and applying oil after a bath just makes me feel even hotter and more uncomfortable.  Using the Brightening Body Lotion means I can stay moisturised and avoid being ridiculously greasy and hot

At first I was using the two products two to three times a week and wasn’t noticing much difference. But after using it every day for a week solid I must admit I’ve noticed my previous scars lightening up and a general brightness to my skin.

So far no oil has lightened any of the scars on my body this quickly so I am impressed. My skin has definitely been looking more even.

It’s been a lifesaver to me this summer because oils would be ruining my life right now in this heat LOL.

Until next time!
