Cannabis Satvia - this is Babs Bodycare's secret ingredient...

There is no question that a natural and organic approach makes all the sense in the world when it comes to what you eat... so what about what you put on your skin?

As the largest organ of your body, it not only absorbs nutrients but can also absorb nasty toxins – this is why it's important to be aware of what you use on your face and body every day! Babs Bodycare is a 100% natural, non-toxic and chemical free beauty brand that is all handmade in Melbourne, Australia. They are of course cruelty free too, for those who like to cleanse and moisturise with a conscience.

My sensitive skin is generally very dry so I love the rich, nourishing moisture that face oils deliver... but you'll be surprised to find that the Babs Bodycare Face Oil is also perfect for combination and oily skin types too. This is because problematic skin is generally dehydrated and stripped from over cleansing and exfoliating.

This is where Babs Bodycare Face Oil comes to your rescue (it may or may not be wearing a mini green cape in my imagination, delivering essential fatty acids that tell the sebaceous oil glands to “just relax”.

Can you believe that Cannabis Satvia is Babs Bodycare's secret ingredient!

This product is more chilled than most other oils because it actually includes Cannabis Satvia, or Hemp Seed Oil. Yep, you heard me, this oil is packed full of the incredible healing nutrients found in marijuana plants. It is in fact a powerful concoction of antioxidants and vitamins that penetrates the skin for a deep, nourishing and healing effect. After lathering it on before bed I can honestly say I woke up looking like I'd just added three Instagram filters to my face. The redness from my eczma had gone down, the darkness under my eyes had minimised and the pigmentation of my normally patchy face was evened out. My skin felt soft, supple and nourished.

I got into the habit years ago of applying coconut oil to my body right after a hot shower while my skin is still damp and boy can you tell the difference in comparison to conventional moisturisers. The Babs Bodycare Body Oil encompasses this same theory – it works best when applied to damp skin because when products are slightly dissolved and in contact with open pores they can penetrate the skin better. This body product is packed with not only coconut oil but a bunch of other helpful, hydrating plant oils that keep your skin smooth, healthy and glowing. So far I'm in love and would definitely recommend trying anything from the Babs Bodycare range, it's super affordable and leaves your skin feeling fabulous. I would give it 4.5 out of 5.
