New to Ireland - and their Lime Body Scrub Cubes

Combining natural and organic ingredients from 'Mother Nature's cupboard' to bring you the best in natural beauty, is the newest beauty brand on the Irish block and I have to say I'm liking what I'm seeing so far. Prices seem very reasonable, products look fresh and exciting and if these Lime Body Scrubbers that the brand have sent me to review are anything to go by, Pixy is about to become very popular indeed. 

These scrubbers came in a dainty little package from Pixy last week, not too overwhelming on first sight but when you open the bag, ZING, the fresh lime lime scent is instantly recognisable (immediate want of a mojito followed close after). The scent isn't chemical or synthetic though, more clean and inviting.

90g (approx 6 cubes) of Lime Body Scrubbers - €4.99 - Vay reasonable, non?
Containing only five ingredients: Lime Essential Oil, Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Apricot Oil & Cocoa Butter, I was very keen to give these zesty wonders a workout. So into the shower I hopped. 

This isn't in the shower, I don't normally shower with limes...

The cube melts easily into your skin but lasts long enough to do your bod, cupped in the palm of your hand. Ideally you'd use two per shower if you're wanting to completely exfoliate your legs too. The little scrubbers are neither harsh nor abrasive and work to gently buff the skin. While it doesn't lather, it does wash off quickly and easily without leaving any residue behind. recommend exercising caution in the shower or bath though as they may cause slippery surfaces once done. I didn't have any problems though. Just lightly buffed, freshly scented skin.

To me, looks set to give Lush a run for its money in the Irish market and I'd urge you to give them a look see to see what you think. There are select stockists right now (details online) in Cork, Dublin, Limerick, Tipperary & Waterford but they have a fully stocked website ready for a gander.


Psst Am I the only one with a serious
goo for a Mojito now?

I love Pixie, I saw them on Dragons Den ans bought their Rose Cleaning mud, they sent me out two bath bombs as well as a special offer, their products seem more natural to me than Lush products if that makes sense!

Ooh I love the smell of limes. Also, just seeing the word mojito is enough to make me want a mojito. Mmmm. Mojiiiitooooo.

Thanks for the heads up on these - I'm a complete natural skincare slut so I'm sure these will be added to my collection in no time (not too impressed by LUSH and their love of adding in sulphates, though...). I want a mojito!!
