Dua Body: Love Your Skin

You know how I love my natural skincare - products with NO synthetics, parabens, artificial colours, chemicals, perfumes or any other nasties. Anything that is made from natural ingredients and doesn't irritate the skin, I am a huge fan of. I was excited to come across Dua Body, a brand devoted to using the highest quality natural ingredients that love your skin.



Dua means "Love" in the Albanian language. Created to inspire self-love and self-care with 100% natural products that will make you feel good, inside and out! They use only quality REAL ingredients, straight from nature, to formulate their products because they believe your skin is worth it. Skincare shouldn't have to be complicated or boring. Dua Body creates simple skincare to Dua (love) you always. 

They currently two different scrubs and two different face masks. I have been trying out one of each recently.



Glow Coco*

You know what I want to say every time I read the name of body scrub? 'You Glow, Glen Coco!' Alrighty, now that I've made the Mean Girls reference we can move on. 

Glow Coco is described as your tropical holiday bottled in a jar. Concocted with virgin coconut oil, algae extract and locally sourced sea sand, it is the perfect combination of rough and gentle. Designed to give your skin a deep exfoliation to leave your skin feeling soft and hydrated. 



First things first, lets have a chat about the goodness inside this jar!


  • Virgin Coconut Oil: Currently all the rage! But why? Well it's full of vitamins and essential fatty acids. Plus it leaves your skin feeling deliciously moisturised, without clogging your pores.
  • Algae Extract: Apparently mermaids love this stuff! Again it's packed with vitamins, but also minerals, which is all designed to leave your skin hydrated and protected against ageing.
  • Rosehip Oil: This is the absolute perfect ingredient for dry skin. It hydrates and nourishes the skin with Vitamin A and E. 
These are the three hero ingredients. It also includes Sand, Sodium Chloride (Dead Sea Salt) and Sugar which give you the scrub. There is also Kaolin Clay (YES CLAY MY FAVE), Organic Coconut Flakes and Jojoba Oil. 

I love this scrub. Simple as that. It is quite an oily, but coarse scrub. When I first smelt it I was like 'OMG IT SMELLS LIKE COOKIES!' My partner then informed that it actually smelt like my Coconut and Milo cookies that I bake...so essentially it's just coconut. Whatever...essentially what I'm trying to say is, it smells incredible. 

I take about a 20 cent piece scoop and massage it over my leg. I really enjoy a coarse scrub and with the mixture of sand, salt and sugar, it gives a damn good scrub. I then leave it for a couple of minutes, to let all the oils soak into my skin, and then wash it off. My skin feels AMAZING after using this. So soft and hydrated. Despite all the oils, it isn't greasy, but is extremely hydrating. I think this is going be amazing come winter.  


Oh Honey*

Oh Honey is a face mask designed to save your complexion on those rough days. Organic raw honey is infused with cucumber seed oil, pomegranate oil, acai berry, witch hazel, coconut milk, along with clays all working together to repair, soften, and awaken the skin.  



So what are the important ingredients that make up this face mask? 

  • Raw Honey: Raw, unfiltered honey comes in its purest form and containing an array of nutrients and antioxidants. It is perfect for helping clear up acne and scars as well as to hydrate and nourish the skin.  
  • Cucumber Seed Oil: Designed to help restore moisture balance to improve skins elasticity.
  • Pomegranate Oil: This is an ingredient I haven't come across yet. Pomegranate is rich in antioxidants as well and helps to brighten, moisturise and protect the skin.
 This mask also contains Kaolin Clay, Dehydrated Coconut Milk and Witch Hazel Powder. All of which aim to soften and restore the skin. I find it is fairly easy to apply. Just wet your face, use the small spatula and massage the mask into your skin. It won't be thick and dark like some face masks, it will be a little bit more transparent. I left it on for about 5 minutes, before washing it off with some warm water. It also has some little grains in it that exfoliate the skin as I remove it as well.


I didn't love the smell of this mask, there was something a little bit funny about it that I didn't love. However, I can deal with masks that don't smell amazingly delicious when they actually work. My skin felt so soft and hydrated after using this mask. I did notice that some of my blemishes started to clear up after I used this a couple of times as well. It is a great mask that you can use a couple of times a week as well as the ingredients are really gentle on the skin. It's different to any mask I own, so it gets a tick from me! 



I have become a huge fan of these two Dua Body products. They are so gentle, but work so well. I also love how different they are to any othe scrub and face mask I have tried before. So many natural brands are doing the classic 'coffee' or 'sugar' scrubs, but the Glow Coco is defintely different to any others I have used.

  5. I'm not going to lie, I thought of Mean Girls as soon as I read the product name too haha. The honey mask sounds good to me but I really hate it when products smell weird so I'll probably give it a miss. Great review though :)
