Scentrelle- A Christmas gift idea

It’s the question everyone is asking this month and with only a few sleeps to go it’s time to neatly tie the ribbon on your last gift and put a halt to the Christmas dramas in the shopping centre.

When it comes to girls (this may be an over generalisation) but I think it’s safe to say that you can’t go wrong with some body loving through the gift of skincare products, make up, perfume or accessories.

One thing to remember is that you don’t always have to stick to the generic big store brands and instead can opt for new brands which shows that you have been thinking about your loved ones and means that you can support smaller Australian businesses in your Christmas shopping.

Scentrelle is perfect for Christmas and the following months in the sun.
“I am a cosmetic scientist and started my owned brand based on my ingredient knowledge and skin allergies. Scentrelle is a luxurious natural Australian brand looking to increase brand awareness.” Says owner of the brand Nelle.
One thing that I love about Scentrelle is that you can calculate your skin type to ensure that the product you are using is suitable.

“The products are all oil based as I believe they are the best ingredient for the skin as they are full of antioxidants and essential fatty acids your skin craves.”

Nelle is working hard to debunk the myths of the beauty industry in that using oil to moisturise your skin is bad.
“Unfortunately the cosmetic industry has been overloaded with the myth that oils are bad for your skin and has caused users especially the Australian demographic to steer away from oils.”
The Scentrelle range has three varying skin types: Vata (dry skin), Pitta (sensitive skin) and Kapha (oily acne prone skin).


Here is an extensive description of the Pitta skin type:
  • Warm skin; sensitive, inflames easily
  • Moderate body weight, medium build, may be athletic
  • Hair is fine, oily; may have balding or premature graying
  • Soft and flexible nails
  • Usually sleep well
  • Strong appetite, irritable if you miss a meal or can’t eat when you're hungry
  • Competitive, perspire frequently
  • When under stress tendency to anger, frustration, irritability
  • Prefer cold climates
I tried the PittaBody Dew Body oil 100ml $29. I applied a small amount after showering and patting down my skin with a dry towel. It was surprisingly great—my skin felt smooth and had a healthy natural glow. The smell of the product is not overbearing with just a slight scent.

I definitely can see why oil is the new moisturiser. It’s quick, easy and dries up in no time!
For this spring and just in time for Christmas when you purchase any body dew you receive a free exfoliating glove—score!

Scentrelle products are all sold online and shipping takes around 3 days.
