“ Brand: Primark / Type: Body Scrub / Suitable for: Body / What it does: Exfoliates, „
I love shopping in Primark and rather often they have offers on their toiletries. Alot of them only cost £1.00-£1.50 to begin with but more often than not they are normally reduced to 50p an item and I always fling some bargains in my usually overflowing basket!
I've tried loads of their offerings out and have been rather pleasantly surprised at not only the value for money I'm offered but feel they're usually of very high quality as well.
I had used the grapefruit bath and shower gel (Please read review on here if interested) and liked it so next time I was Primark I decided to try out the scrub and picked another gel up to use in conjunction with it.
I don't know about you but I am rather prone to dry, flaky skin and I do go for a spa rather often to help my skin however I do feel that dead skin cells do need buffing off if possible but I am aware I need a gentle exfoliating product as I possess delicate and sensitive skin prone to going angry red or breaking out in spots or scratches if it doesn't like something I use on it! I was a little concerned about the purchase of this but felt for a mere 50p I owed it to myself to try it out and usually this does retail at £1.50 a tube after-all lol.
Bright yellow, plastic tube with a matching flip top lid to the bottom of it concealing a small hole and on the front I'm told it is Grapefruit 'Glorious, zingy & Zesty' Body Scrub. On the back of the tube I'm told a bit about the product, directions for use are given, ingredients and size is listed which 150ml and contact details for Primark are given. It's not a bad looking tube, easy to handle and it's informative enough too!
A Bit About The Product According To The Back Of The Tube:
Packed full of zest, this glorious zingy grapefruit body scrub will blast away dry skin leaving you feeling soft, smooth and amazingly refreshed.
Well this is not a shower or bath gel meaning this isn't to be used instead of those things so me, well I wash first so that I'm clean and then I set about using it afterwards. It's very, very simple to use and all I do is splodge a little of the cream coloured yogurty looking liquid with some small grains of brown seeds in it into my hands and then I gently massage it over my skin in circular motions.
Smell wise.... well it smells very naturally of grapefruits, fresh and not faked but not too full on fragrance wise either. The creamy consistency of this makes it go a little soapy looking on the skin if you damp/wet already (which you should be) and it feels slightly greasy thus giving a hydrated feel as you go.
The seeds in this are very gentle and in an unscratchy way buff the skin up rather well indeed. I find that no matter how much I use of this product or how hard I scrub myself with it it's impossible to hurt myself but I can feel it gently buffing my skin and therefore it does really rejuvenate and refresh me and my senses.
The consistency of this is great as a little of this goes a very long way and what's more when you've finished you simply rinse it off with it does with incredible ease and no fuss at all.
I really do rate this one for people with sensitive skins in particular. It leaves skin gently smelling fresh for a really good length of time and it leaves skin feeling revived and cleaner after using it. I think it gently works and it's a great one to use on a daily basis due to it being such a gentle formulation.
My skin feels really hydrated (in an ungreasy or heavy way) and unclogged and when I pick up my tube after using it is I can see I've used hardly used any product at all to get great results making this a really economical buy so thanks again Primark once again!
