Hello! So I'm off today (wooo!) and in between studying for my driving theory, doing a bit of housework and painstakingly applying for jobs I thought I'd do a little product review!
As far as I'm aware Kedem are a fairly new up and coming company selling natural skin care products containing Dead Sea minerals and essential oils which are fantastic for use with dry skin and apparently some medical skin complaints aswell!
The products I own and use that I'm reviewing are the Salt Scrub in Vanilla and the Body Butter in Vanilla.
Salt Scrub 500g rrp £59.99
This stuff is fab if waay expensive!
It's so luxurious to use in the shower or bath and softens hard or dry skin in one use. I only use it once a week or the night before a night out to prep my skin for fake tanning etc as it is so moisturising. My main problem with oily body products is that they don't sink in and leave a horrible residue on the skin but this is a dream!
At first it doesn't feel as though it has all washed away but once you get out the shower and dry off you can feel that the product has sank in and your skin will look glowing and nourished.
The scent of this is wonderful and isn't too strong, using it in the bath leaves you feeling lovely and relaxed.
Here's a little tip: I use this to help remove fake tan as it is a gentle way of doing it. After I have rubbed it all in I just take a flannel or a body puff and any horrible streaky fake tan left over comes off leaving skin ready for a fresh new fake tan application!
The only downside to this is if you scrub too hard it can be slighty scratchy but as long as you are gentle when applying it you should be fine!
Body Butter 250g rrp £59.99
It has a rich thickness which is lovely and it feels expensive.
I use it after the salt scrub and it just glides onto my skin and sinks in immediately getting rid of any stubborn dry skin.
I use both products quite frequently on my feet and I have seen a great improvement in my skin. Much less dry skin and softer.
Again, the scent is lovely and fresh and I find it relaxing.
I know the prices of these products are high end but they really are worth the money if you want to tackle dry skin or even just a bit of luxury, and they are long lasting as I've had these a good few months now however...
you don't want to hear that!
I have a secret to share!
On my wage there is no way I could afford high end beauty products at that price!
Kedem have an ebay shop and if you make them a half decent offer they usually accept it! I bought the salt scrub and body butter for £10 each!
I also have the salt in kiwi and mango because of this, they are still unopened!
They also have a stall in St Enochs Centre in Glasgow that my parents bought the scrub from for £20 after haggling with the very enthusiastic sales people! (that was how I found out about them.)
They probably have other stalls in various shopping centres throughout the UK!
So there you have it! High end, luxurious skin beauties for less than half price!
Have you tried any Kedem Cosmetics? What did you think?
I'd love to try some of their skin care products for the face!
