“ Brand: Nirvana Spa / Type: Body Scrub / Suitable for: Body / What it does: Smoothes, Exfoliates, „
I received this scrub for christmas last year, and I haven't been using it on a regular basis so I still have some left, but I do enjoy using it. I have never really seen the brand N-Spa, so I'm not sure how much it costs or where you can get it from, but it doesn't seem like an expensive product.
The packaging for this is a squeezy clear tube with the lid at the bottom, so it stands up in my shower basket very well. Plus as it's clear you can see how much product is left.
Everytime I use this I have a good sniff, as it has a really lovely smell, I expected it to be very orange and zesty when I first used it, but it's actually really different. I think as it's called orange smoothie that is what it's supposed to smell like but to me it smells like orange yoghurt, that sort of creamy orange smell, it's very subtle but incredibly nice.
It's an orange coloured, quite thick textured cream with small black beads in it, which I suppose are the ex-foliating part, they are very tiny, but when you use the scrub on your skin, you can feel them.
I don't think if I used this on a regular basis that it would last very long, as to scrub your whole body it does require quite a large amount, but if you only used it on one area maybe it lasts a bit longer.
After using this my skin does feel a lot smoother, and it does wash off very easily, unlike other scrubs I have used, so I would recommend this product, it's nothing amazing, but does make your skin feel that little bit softer, and the smell is really lovely.
I first started using N-Spa orange smoothie body scrub when I booked in for a spray tan, you are advised to exfoliate for a few days before you have the tan to ensure that it looks as natural as possible.
I saw this body scrub in Asda for the value price of 99p for a large 225ml tube. It has Orange smoothie in large black letters on the front of the tube and has a black flip top lid that it stands on. The tube is see through and you can see the orange body scrub, with little black bits in it. I am now onto my second tube and found that I got roughly five full body scrubs out of one tube, so I feel it is very good value for money.
It has quite a nice statement also written on the front 'Orange, said the wise man is surely the most happy of colours and even though its hard to be sure where its place in the rainbow starts and ends, be certain that even the most weary heart will smile when it captures its sweet scent and fruit awash with love and sunshine'
The directions on the back are simple, apply directly to cleansed, damp skin, gently massage and rinse. I particularly like the bit underneath that says 'don not eat, this is not a food product'!! So for anyone out there that would mistake this for something you can eat, then don't!!
I use this when in the shower, I wet my whole body and then squeeze a small amount of the scrub on my hand and start from top to bottom. You don't need a lot in your hand as it does go quite a long way. As soon as you open the tube you smell the gorgeous orange scent of the scrub. The scrub felt lovely on my skin, the small black bits were not too abrasive so that it hurt (as some body scrubs do) but just abrasive enough so that you could feel it was doing you some good. I gently massage it into my skin, all over my body (apart from my face) for a few minutes and then rinse off with warm water. The scrub rinses off very easily and doesn't leave behind any residue as some scrubs do. I then was all over with my usual shower gel to ensure I have removed all of the scrub.
After using this body scrub, my skin felt instantly softer and smoother and once I had moisturised I was left with soft skin for days. This body scrub will now remain part of my beauty regime, I am very impressed with the results for such a cheap item.
A few months ago I felt the need to purchase a product to help with the condition of the skin on my legs. I have in the past purchased body scrubs but have been left less than satisfied. This was until I came across this product.
The product I will review is n-spa fruit, orange smoothie body scrub, by nirvana spa, an absolutely delightful scrub that smells good enough to eat!!!
The scrub comes in a very understated tube. The tube is clear with thick black writing on it, which would normally attract me, but the colour of the scrub itself is so vivid that as it shows through the tube it is certainly an eye catcher!!!!
The front of the tube says "ORANGE SMOOTHIE" in large thick black letters on the left hand side, under which is written - "orange, said the wise man, is surely the most happy of colours and even though it's hard to be sure where its place in the rainbow starts and ends, be certain that even the most weary heart will smile when it captures it's sweet scent and fruit awash with love and sunshine."
Yes I know, absolute rubbish, but it at least gives you something to read when in the shower!!!
The tube holds 225ml of scrub and has a shelf life of 36months.
The smell of the scrub hits you the second the tube is opened, and is almost edible hence all the "do not eat, this is not a food product!", text over the back of the tube. The exfoliating beads are small and black in colour, and the product is thick and emollient and doesn't disappear into nothing when applied to the skin.
The colour of this product is just as you would expect it to be, bright orange!!!
The directions for use are pretty simple, it just states - apply to cleansed damp skin, gently massage and rinse. You will have to rinse well as once on the beads hold on for dear life!!
~~~PRICE AND AVAILABILITY~~~
I purchased this product for £3.95, from Asda. It could however have been purchased as part of a two for £5.00 deal, but as I hadn't tried it at that point I thought it better to abstain, for this time anyway!!!
Also available in the "FRUIT" range are raspberry, crème brulee vanilla and lemon sorbet, all with the matching bath lotion and all vivid in colour and smelling like a packet of Opal Fruits............sorry!! I mean Starbursts, (god how old am I!!).
This product, after only three uses has transformed my skin, from being dry, scaly and lumpy to being smooth and soft to the touch.
I will say, however, that after the use of this product, you must apply a lot of moisturising lotion as this product can dry the skin out a little, but apart from that it's wonderful!!!!
THANKS FOR READING MY REVIEW, I HOPE IT WAS OF USE!!!!
Exfoliate the skin, to leave you feeling silky smooth and fragranced with the scent of the tropics / Apply onto damp skin using circular movements and feel the warmth melt away muscle tension and kick start circulation /
