Part of the guest experience at a luxury guest house or boutique hotel is the use of provided bath and body amenities supplied in the en suite bathrooms...
At our recent High Tea we gave out goodie bags containing samples of a range of Beauty Factory bath and body products to the establishment owners who attended, and we've had great feedback.
As the editor of the Portfolio Travel Blog I felt it only right that I try out these yummy goodies myself and let our readers know about them too.
I used the Earthbound Safari range of products - luxury shower gel, body lotion, shampoo and conditioner.
The products come in classy containers that look very much like Molton Brown (but are a fraction of the cost!) and smell simply heavenly. They would look great in any lodge or guest house bathroom.
Infused with wild neroli and bergamot essential oils, all 4 products feel great on the skin and hair and leave you with a tantalising scent that lingers for hours.
Unlike many 'hotel' hair products which make my hair feel like it's been washed with a bar of sunlight soap, this range left my hair soft, silky and knot-free.
Here are 4 more reasons to love Beauty Factory's product ranges:
The South African-ness of the product: It's so great to be able to offer foreign visitors and guests and discerning South Africans alike, excellent locally produced products and fragrances that rival the world's best. Not only is it something different and fresh, but it's also something to be proud of!
The story appeal of the different ranges and fragrances: The different ranges and fragrances really tell a tale, especially if matched with the environment and ambiance of the establishment care. The two ranges selected for the Portfolio event goodie bags are great examples: Safari and Beach - from the rolling hills of Madikwe to the dunes of Paternoster - every line has a tale to tell.
The exceptional value they offer: these ranges cost a fraction of imported ranges as they are locally manufactured and come direct from the factory. They also attract no import duties. Best of all, Beauty Factory offers 5L refills in all Earthbound ranges to help maximise the lifespan of the bottles and minimise impact on the environment.
The fact that they are good for the world around us: these products do not need to be freighted and shipped across the globe either. Using Earthbound products (or any other of Beauty Factory's ranges for that matter) means more local jobs and less strain on the environment.
