I must admit, I’m loving the fact that more and more South African beauty brands are popping up. Here’s one I got to discover recently and it’s called Tranquil Body Treats. Like the name says, this range is full of fab products to pamper, nurture and well, just spoil yourself.
Think body lotions, bath products, body scrubs, oils, soaps, massage oils, foot treatments (whew) as well as specialised treatments like eczema cream and a full skincare line.
Its a loving range created by Leigh-Ann Burger, a qualified beauty therapist, who was like most of us, unimpressed with the high price tag of salon beauty products. Leigh-Ann researched ingredients and started formulating her own body scrub. A few months later she made her own skin and body care products and then decided to sell her little treats, naming her brand Tranquil Body Treats.
Her range was tried and tested on 20 candidates with varying skin types and from there the best products were selected.
I decided to give these products a bash. I took my iPad into the bathroom, put on some relaxing tunes of Buddha bar and ran a bath with Tranquil Treats Aroma Foam Bath (R100). I also added a cupful of the Bath Milkshake (R60) and scrubbed my skin with the Body Scrub.
I came out the bath feeling pampered and relaxed. The products smelt great, and I particularly liked the Bath Milkshake which reminded me of a lime milkshake I had at Mugg and Bean. The Body Salt scrub was gentle and left my skin silky smooth.
All in all a great range! Well done to another South African beauty range!
