Not only is AFRICAN EXTRACTS a brand endorsed by BEAUTY WITHOUT CRUELTY, but super effective, amazingly affordable, contains zero plastic microbeads or parabens, is organic and suitable for vegetarians and majority vegan too; here's why I keep returning to this SA brand: 
Key ingredient to all AFRICAN EXTRACT products  is Bio-active Rooibos, indigenous to SA and full of antioxidants and mineral goodness.  These products carry a gentle whiff of Rooibos mixed with delish cocoa butter and sweet almond scent; (I'm feeling melancholy this morning, with hydrangeas on my desk and the smell of rooibos, both reminders of time spent with my granny where milky sweet rooibos tea was consumed in copious amounts!

I've been using AFRICAN EXTRACTS Rooibos Exfoliating Body Scrub, Ultra Moisturising Shea Butter Body Moisturiser and 3-in-1 Facial Wipes Classic Care: 


Now that shower time is shortened to a bucketful, time is of the essence, so one wants to hop in, scrub to feel clean and good to go. AFRICAN EXTRACTS Rooibos Exfoliating Body Scrub makes my skin feel tingly and amazing, thanks to perfect size apricot kernel granules and Rooibos leaves to buff and polish skin.



I apply AFRICAN EXTRACTS Ultra Moisturising Shea Butter Body Moisturiser immediately to damp skin ensuring it sinks in quickly. It contains cocoa seed butter, Shea butter, Sweet Almond oil and Rooibos to nourish and moisture winter skin. LOVE!  



 As I travel on public transport I like to keep wipes on me at all times and these AFRICAN EXTRACTS 3-in-1 Facial Wipes have ingredients like Vitamin E , Pro Vitamin B5 and of course Rooibos, which make them really moisturising, are non-greasy and seriously great for removing makeup and waterproof mascara. 

R49,95 for a pack of 25


A quick synopsis:
