NSPA Blueberry Cream Pie Body Scrub
Advantages: smoothens and softens skin well
Disadvantages: blueberry smell is quite synthetic
I like to use a body scrub a couple of times a week to keep my skin looking in good condition. Having fairly dry skin I am prone to it flaking, so using a scrub gets rid of any dry patches and leaves my skin looking fresher and healthier. The latest body scrub I have used is the Blueberry Cream Pie scrub from N Spa. I have tried quite a lot of the N Spa products now, but this is the first I have tried in this particular fragrance.
The scrub comes in a clear tube, through which you can see the pale blue scrub. The design of this tube is similar to the rest of the N Spa range with bold black writing on the front. The flip top lid is sturdy and easy to open. I prefer scrubs that come in tubes rather than tubs, as with tubs I often find I get product under my nails.
The scent of the body scrub is noticeable as soon as the product is squeezed out of the tube, and unfortunately I don't feel it is one of N Spa's best fragrances. I've used a fair few N Spa products to date, all in a variety of scents, and I feel that Blueberry Pie is probably the least impressive. I certainly don't think the scent is horrible, and I've definitely used worse in my time, however there is something very artificial about this product which is disappointing, and although a fragrance of blueberry can clearly be detected, there is an almost chemical tone to the scent, which really lets it down.
The directions for use are simply to apply to cleansed, damp skin and massage in. The scrub is a rather light consistency. I don't mean runny, but it's not one of those thick, buttery scrubs, and so the massaging in part of the process is very easy and takes minimal effort. Due to the consistency, only a relatively small amount of the product is required per use, as it spreads out well, which goes some way to explaining why my tube has lasted me several months now.
The scrub is a rather unnatural powder blue colour and you can see large black grains throughout. As well as these grains, I also believe the scrub may contain salt or sugar granules which can't be seen. It certainly feels like there are a lot of grains in the product when massaging it into the skin, however it's never uncomfortable and nor do I feel as though I am rubbing my skin raw when using it! I find it rinses away easily too, with no grains clinging to my skin as there's nothing worse than gritty feeling skin!
The results I get from this product are impressive. It sloughs away any dry, dead skin, revealing fresher, smoother skin underneath, and any dry/flaky bits are obliterated! I don't notice any trace of the scent left behind on my skin, however for me that's not necessarily a bad thing, considering I am not overly keen on it.
A 225ml tube of this scrub costs £3.00. I feel this is a decent price, and one that I'm more than happy to pay.
Overall, I'm very pleased with this scrub. It functions well at buffing up my skin and leaving it feeling smooth and soft. The only downside is that I felt the blueberry cream pie scent was rather artificial, and for that it will lose a star. Otherwise, a lovely product, which I would highly recommend.
