Laid Bare is a UK brand that uses 97-100% natural ingredients with no nasties.
The Scrub A Dub Dub daily face and body exfoliator is made with green tea, corn powder and grapefruit. It must separate in the tube so needs a good shake or if you open it upside down, some can dribble out. However, despite looking thin initially, it's really gritty, which I like in a scrub. When I used this all over body in the shower, I was left with soft, smooth skin. I must confess I haven't tried it on my face but with its mild ingredients, I'm sure it would be fine.
All in all, a very pleasing and effective scrub.

The Butter Me Up body butter is a hefty tub of sensual and floral smelling thickness. I really like that Laid Bare do this in a 250ml tub. So many natural brands put their butters or lotions into poxy 150ml tubes which are neither use nor ornament to man or beast. When I say this, I might add it's my own personal issue, as I have to moisturise all over, every day, or basically I'll turn into a lizard. So probably, people with normal skin might not mind that their butters don't come in industrial sizes. I do, however. And for the price some of them cost, you should expect more (a minimum of 250ml).
Anyway, not only do Laid Bare do this fabulous size, but they are also a reasonably priced brand. My skin problems are documented on this blog. I have just shifted two lots of eczema and now need to keep on top of my skin dryness with very thick emollients.
Unfortunately, while this butter is undoubtedly amazingly moisturising, it wasn't enough for me at this moment in time as my skin has become itchy once more. It's always trial and error for me as to which products are going to work and many butters and lotions have bitten the dust in my quest to keep scaliness at bay.
While it didn't agree with me, I have no hesitation recommending this lovely butter to someone whose skin is not quite as dehydrated as mine because I believe it would work very well on 'normal' dry skin rather than crocodile skin like mine.
