Afternoon Tea Cosmetics: Cucumber Sandwiches

I dunno about you but the craze of Afternoon Tea has circulated all over our social media lately. Were constantly seeing beautifully presented sandwiches and cakes on our Instagram so Cognito has brought out a cosmetics range we all will be sure to love!

Cognito is a Suffolk based company creating luxurious hand-made bath & body products. And honestly this Afternoon Tea range needs to be talked about!

Their collection includes:

*Cucumber Sandwiches
*Lemon Drizzle
*Victoria Sponge (Vanilla)
*Eton Mess
*Chocolate Orange Truffle
*Prosecco & Strawberry
*Gin & Tonic
*Fruit Cup/Pimm’s
*Peppermint Tea

Afternoon Tea Cosmetics: Cucumber Sandwiches

“A sumptuous collection of products inspired by the traditional Afternoon Tea.
Pick a luxury Spa product using any of the wonderful ‘flavours’ below to enjoy the delightful aromas and skin-softening ingredients without gaining a pound!”

So let’s get to today’s beautiful product: Cucumber Sandwiches Exfoliating Body Scrub*. Now honestly hands down, this is one of the best scrubs I’ve ever tried. Seriously.

When I thought of the scent I thought hmm I dunno if I particularly like Cucumber, but oh my gosh Cognito really have created a stunning product here. This gentle scrub smells so sweet, there’s hints of cucumber but other fragrances such as apricot, sea salt and coconut – the mixture of oils and butters work really well.

Cognito certainly know what they’re doing. This scrub has lots of enriched oils such as Coconut, Sunflower oil and even Shea butter. So when you think of a body scrub you think well its full of ‘bits’ to scrub away and leave my skin feeling cleansed. Well with all these other ingredients, my skin had never felt so soft, smooth and oily – but in a good way.

I love using bath products that make my skin smell amazing after and this certainly does it. I honestly can’t think of anything wrong with this product and I think it certainly needs to be more hyped – I mean even the packaging is cute and simple.

After trying their body scrub, I’m 100% going to pick up some other bits. If you know anyone obsessed with Afternoon Tea I think these are the perfect gift. Or if they like a certain flavours such as Lemon Drizzle or Chocolate Orange.. Or even Prosecco and Strawberries?!

Do you like afternoon Tea? Is this something you would try?

    Ooooh I’ve never heard of this brand before, but it sounds amazing! I never really bother with scrubs, which is so bad, I deffo need to start using them more. Afternoon tea is so popular, it makes for a perfect Instagram photo, and I love reading peoples blog posts on them, so for a brand to create a range based on that, is so creative and such a good idea!
