This tea tree body scrub comes in a squirty container and costs around £1.50 for 150ml with a life of 12m the scrub includes the natural ingrediants of tea tree and peppermint which are known for theirskin caring properties. It also has small exfoliating particles in which are designed to remove dead skin and leave your body feeling smooth and soft. The smell of peppermint and tea tree is quite strong and to be honest I am not sure I like it I felt like I was cleaning my body with a face scrub designed to fight spots i prefer body scrubs to be more fruity. The exfoliating particiles weren't exactly huge and they were a little rough on my skin I actuallt ended up with soe red patches from rubbing it in it wasn't a pleasant experience to saay the least. This body scrub wasn't for me I didn't like the smell or the feel of it and didn't think it left my skin feeling cared for at all. a disapointing buy.
THE PACKAGING: 150ml see-through squeezy tube and to the bottom of it there is a clear flip open lid/cap concealing a small hole. On the front of the tube all in green script is TEA TREE exfoliating Body scrub with the brand Elizabeth French at the top. I am informed that the product ''contains tea tree and peppermint oil as well as a gentle exfoliator which leaves your skin cleansed and polished'.' On the back of the tube other information includes being told a bit about the product, I'm told how to use it, ingredients are listed, size is stated and contact details for Elizabeth French are given. There is also the plastic recycle symbol letting me know I can recycle the tube after finishing. THE SCRUB: The colour it is a light green but a clear green rather than opaque and when you squeeze some out onto your fingers it is a fairly thick with an element of gooeyness, a strange consistency. It looks nicer than it feels and it has little brown pieces of seeds which buff your skin up of course. So you apply a blob onto wet/damp skin and I personally gently rub some over my skin in a circular motion and add more as I move to different parts of my body. I am fairly unimpressed with its scrub quality as I felt that there were not enough of the sandy bits to really give a scrub. The bits were also a bit sharp. It felt rather like I had some ectoplasm from 'Ghost busters' that had fallen in some sand rather than a luxury bath scrub! I do like the smell, it is a combination of tea tree and peppermint which I find refreshing and makes my skin glow nicely however as a scrub it leaves a lot to be desired. Verdict: Not my favourite scrub. I prefer sugar scrubs I think. The sandy gritty texture was not a good feel although I did really like the smell. The texture of the product itself needs a bit of improvement too as slimy ectoplasm is not really what I am wanting in my bath. I would not really recommend this and will give it somewhere between one and two stars erring towards two as the smell is lovely and it did scrub but not in a pleasant way.
