Body Deli - Supercharged Superfoods for the Face


You just know that a range is going to be AMAZING when the natural beauty bible that is the Beauty Shortlist names them in their hottest predictions for 2014.

So, it stands to reason that I was incredibly excited when a package from A Beautiful World arrived last week, containing goodies from The Body Deli.  Liz from ABW sourced this organic brand of goodness fresh from a trip to the California, and the range launches exclusively on their website today.

My tip would be to snap it all up because it's seriously good stuff..

The Body Deli contains some of nature's most powerful and potent superfoods to give your face, body and hair a healthy, vibrant and youthful glow. The ingredients are fresh, raw and organic, thanks to the brand's unique thought that the skin (as the body's largest organ) should be treated to the same high-quality nutrition that the body needs.


Handmade in small batches by the brand's 'cosmetic chefs', the Blueberry Fusion Micro Scrub (£28) is the perfect case in point. I mean, just look at it! With a list of ingredients that are good enough to eat and the smell (and appearance!) of a super-charged smoothie, I wasn't quite sure whether to plunge a spoon in or spread it across my face.

Made with fresh blueberries, acai fruit and gentle, natural exfoliators (including earth minerals and lactic, malic and citric acids) this is the perfect scrub to add sparkle to tired or dull skin. In fact, it promises the results of a professional micro-dermabrasion in the comfort of your own home.

So, how else does it work? Simple, really. The power of the berries combine to stop free radical damage, while the blueberries nourish the skin from the outside, in. Meanwhile, the fruit acids help to create that one thing we're all looking for - a softer, smoother complexion.

Anyway, I am completely in love with this product. Yes, I want to drink it, and, yes, when I first looked in the mirror after smearing it on, I was a little concerned by my purple appearance. ("ARGH!" I screamed, convinced I'd had some sort of horror reaction, or morphed into Violet from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. But then, I realised - it was the blueberries.)

However, it is the perfect pick-me-up for skin lacking in radiance or glow. It also happens to be ultra gentle, making it perfect for sensitive skins. Once I'd washed the purple off, I was left with baby soft skin, which appeared fresh and clear, and this smoothness lasted all day.

Now, I want the entire Body Deli range - Mr Bank Manager, just you try and hold me back. Interested? You can get yours from ABW from today by clicking here - plus we have an exclusive 10% off for our readers for the entire month. Simply type in the code DELI10 for more.
