This year I committed a horrible crime. Despite being aware of the fact that my skin gets really dry, and requires extra TLC during the winter months, I failed to give it the necessary attention. Eventually, afraid I would turn into a scaly reptile, I decided to take serious skincare action. Enter Hey Gorgeous!
I’d been seeing wonderful comments about the all natural, organic brand on social media, so I placed my order. I bought the Coconut Lime Body Scrub and the Coconut Decadent Body Soufflé. I read that these were excellent for all skin types, but especially for dry to very dry skin.
Both products come in 200g tubs, and are filled right to the top. The little “made with love” sticker is a really cute, special touch. And I really like the label that covers the top of the lid, as every time I go to open the tub, I’m greeted by “Hey Gorgeous!” 😀
The label at the back of the scrub made me giggle. I’m not sure if you can see it clearly in the pic, but it reads: “Try not to eat this product.” I guess I don’t blame them for putting that on there. I love the smell. Lime infused with coconut makes for a very refreshing, very edible scent.
Here’s what the brand says about the product:

My skin felt great as I rinsed off the scrub. I also loved knowing that whilst using this yummy product, I was saying goodbye to nasty old dry skin cells, and making way for soft, flawless skin. I’ve only used the scrub 3 times, and I’m already obsessed with it, and with how great it makes my skin feel.
And here’s what the brand claims about the body soufflé:
Why Use Me?
Travel to the tropics with our rich and aromatic Whipped Coconut Body Soufflé! Lush, intensively moisturising, skin caring, indulgent, it will satisfy the most spoiled skin ever! Sweet and exotic coconut scent that you are sure to enjoy! Slather generously onto your skin, it will be quickly absorbed and will release the most heavenly aroma that Mother Nature can offer. Now your skin is baby soft and replenished all day and night long.
It works wonders moisturising, nourishing and protecting skin, as well as fighting acne, eczema, and other skin conditions! Oh and did we mention that our Coconut Body Soufflé can also help in the fight against ageing, helping you regain that radiant youthful glow!
Like all our gorgeous products, this fabulous exquisite Coconut Body Soufflé is 100% natural and organic, no chemicals, synthetic preservatives, and other yucky stuff that usually may be found in commercial similar products.
Whipped Shea butter, Organic Coconut oil, Jojoba, Sweet Almond Oil, Coconut Milk, and Arrowroot powder.
Why It Works:
Coconut Oil, or rather the medium chain fatty acids within, possess antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties! All of this means extra protection against the microbes responsible for unwanted skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. As Coconut Oil doesn’t change skin PH, it doesn’t irritate your skin, making it great for those who are allergic to products with fragrances and dyes, as well as those who suffer red and itchy skin post-shaving.
I’ve been using the body soufflé everyday since it arrived, and I adore it. The first thing that gets you is the smell. This one’s worse than the scrub, when it comes to being difficult to resist the urge to have a little taste. It smells like coconut sweets! When you dip your finger into the tub, you can actually feel the coconut, but as soon as you rub it into your skin, it’s so smooth and incredibly moisturizing. I really like how quickly it absorbs into my skin.
The thing that really sealed the deal for me though was what happened the very first time I used both products together. My husband noticed, and said, “your skin feels so good!” Guess who’ll be sponsoring (oh so happily) my next Hey Gorgeous order. 😉
