Terrific Trio – Rain Africa Biologie…plus a GIVEAWAY

Three words come to mind when I think about Rain AfricaLocal, Natural, Quality.  Their products are handmade in South Africa, eco ethical & formulated using organically certified botanical ingredients.  Today we’re talking about three Rain Africa products that have been total life savers for my poor, haggered tootsies this Summer.  When I received this parcel from Rain Africa, I was extremely happy to see spa products designed for your feet plus a couple of extras for a giveaway on the blog.

The Rain Africa Biologie range boasts with ingredients like super oils (Mongongo Nut Oil, Marula Oil, Baobab Oil), Kalahari Melon, Mafura Butter anti-oxidants, vitamins, omega oils and essential fatty acids to nourish and protect the skin against free radical damage.  These products are biodegradable,  and environmentally friendly designed to care for hair, feet and hands.  And here’s the kicker, their products contain: no parabens, no petroleum jelly, no mineral oil, no liquid paraffin & no petrochemicals.  Plus, there is absolutely no animal testing involved and this scores major points in my book.

♥  Organic Kalahari Melon (sounds delicious, doesn’t it?) is super moisturising with regenerating & restructuring properties.

♥  Organic Marula Oil is called the new ‘miracle oil’ because it is highly nourishing and hydrating.

♥  Organic Mongongo Nut Oil has hydrating, regenerating and restructuring properties with a high Vitamin E content.

♥  Organic Baobab Oil contains Vitamins A, D, E and F which is easily and absorbed by the skin leaving no greasy residue, and is also highly moisturising and soothing.

♥  Organic Mafura Butter is rich in essential fatty acids and has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Did you see how many times I mentioned ‘hydrating’ and ‘moisturising’ above?  That means this range will banish any dry, flaky bits you might have on your body.  I like to give my feet a good pedicure every now and again and these 3 products from Rain Africa make the process very easy, plus you are left with soft & wonderfully scented feet.

Here’s a bit more information on my ‘Terrific Trio’:

Herbal Foot Soak – I start by indulging my tootsies with this refreshing, yet soothing foot soak.  If you are the lucky owner of a snazzy foot spa, then this will probably be your favourite step in the whole process.  I love a good foot soak, it softens all those nasty bits, which you can then remove with either a good foot scrub or a foot file / pumice.  This foot soak smells incredible – like a fresh, dewy morning at a safari spa like Karkloof.  To start off sprinkle the foot soak into a foot spa or a clean dish pan (used just for feet, girls) filled with warm water.  Place the foot spa or dish pan on top of a towel (just in case you are accident prone like me).  I then let my feet soak while watching an episode of my favourite TV series (think ‘The Blacklist’ or ‘The Following’) – I usually let my feet soak for about 15 minutes but remember, the more cracked and calloused your feet, the longer they need to soak.  With ingredients like Peppermint, Tea Tree and Eucalyptus essential oils, my feet are left feeling soft and deodorised.  Plus, you get a bang for your buck because you can use this foot soak on your hands too!  Retails for R 69,99 online at Rain Africa or at one of their stores listed here (just scroll down).

Exfoliating Foot Scrub – I then move on to the foot exfoliant – now remember, you have softened the dry skin on your feet using the foot soak, so now you need to remove the flaky bits too.  I start with applying a tablespoon amount to my feet (and add more as needed), and then rub the creamy scrub all over my feet focusing on the dry areas.  If you feel you the need to really work those dry areas, use a pumice stone or foot brush as well.  This creamy scrub contains Apricot seed kernels (you can see the little speckles in the photo above) to gently slough away dry dead skin.  It also contains Aloe Vera to soften the skin even further and preps your skin for the penetration of the essential oils (Peppermint, Tea Tree and Eucalyptus) – these cool, deodorise and prevent fungal growth.  Again, you can use this scrub on your hands and feet.  Retails for R 89,00 online at Rain Africa or at one of their stores listed here (just scroll down).

Baobab & Rooibos Body Butter – now it’s time to slather on a rich body butter – I personally prefer a body butter to foot cream because it provides extra nourishment and hydration.  I apply a generous amount of body butter to my feet, pull on a pair of pedi socks (my new obsession is the Sorbet Moisture Infusing Socks) and sit back & relax while the butter is absorbed into my skin.  This Biologie body butter smells like a warm, sticky donut (a heavenly vanilla scent, and yet it contains no vanilla).  With ingredients such as Rooibos, Baobab Oil (known as the tree of life), Shea Butter, Marufa Butter and Sweet Almond Oil my feet are nourished, soothed and rejuvinated in one step.  Retails for R 135,00 online at Rain Africa or at one of their stores listed here (just scroll down).

Offering a very unique selection of bath, baby, body, hair, skin and home products, they also sell interesting goodies such as a gorgeous crochet blanket (listed in the Baby range), a beaded cotton wool holder (listed in the Wild Cotton range) and even scented candles.

You can take a look at their products online here OR pop into one of their stores where you are able to sniff each and every product to your heart’s content (that’s what I did the last time I was there and I ended up buying quite a few items).

So ladies (and gents), today I am spoiling you with your very own ‘Terrific Trio’ set which includes the Rain Africa Biologie Foot Soak, Savannah Body Butter (this one contains Aloe Vera, Baobab Oil, Shea Butter & Rooibos) and Biologie Facial Rehydrater (which was a Fairlady Best Of Beauty Awards Finalist in 2013) PLUS an extra surprise goody (I guess that makes it a ‘Fabulous Foursome’ then).

With these 3 products, you can give yourself an at-home spa experience.  The Facial Rehydrater is also a firm favourite of mine as it contains Kalahari Melon, Aloe Vera and Sweet Orange (amongst other things) – I spritz it all over my face whenever I feel like a refreshing ‘pick-me-up’.  This bottle is perfect for travelling (just pop it in your bag) when the skin becomes dehydrated due to the aircon in the car or airplane & it can be spritzed over a full face of makeup.

I’m getting snazzy here on Pink Peonies, as I’ve decided to start doing my giveaways using Rafflecopter.  It’s super quick and easy, but if you have any questions about how to enter using Rafflecopter, pop me an email – I’m happy to assist.  All you have to do to be entered is:
