I love body scrubs because my skin can become quite dry and flaky at times leaving it looking dull and unhealthy. It also causes a problem when applying fake tan. So when I was buying a lovely body butter on holidays recently, I decided to snap up the matching body butter too.
What does the product do?
The product has been designed for those with dry skin. It promises to exfoliate the skin meaning that it will scrub off all of the dead and dull skin cells using brown sugar, bamboo organic sugar cane to reveal the shiny, healthy ones underneath. It also promises to hydrate the skin using the natural additions of Shea Butter, Raspberry Butter and Aloe while also nourishing it leaving it feeling silky soft and smooth. It also acts as an antioxidant and aims to protect the skin from the elements. The product hasn't been tested on animals, contains natural ingredients and the packaging is earth friendly.
The product comes in a range of aromas and although they are packaged in the same way, the colour of the packaging signifies the different scent. You can choose between Pomegranate, Blueberry, Lemongrass, Almond, Coconut and Lavender. I chose the Pomegranate aroma because I like fruity scents.
Packaging and Price
The product comes contained within a circular tub which has a screw top lid. The bottom half of the tub is clear and you can see the product inside. A pink sticker lets you know that you have chosen the Pomegranate aroma and open mouthed tub allows you to be able to access all the of the product easily and control the exact amount that you want to use so that there will be no wastage. The product isn't particularly cheap and it will cost you around £20. I got my abroad and I don't think you can buy it in the shops over here but it is available from a few websites.
Application and Performance
The lid of the product is easy to remove and you can smell the aroma of it quite strongly as soon as you do. It is very fruity and smells exactly like Pomegranates but with a sweet edge so if you like the aroma of Pomegranates then you should like this. The scrub has a different consistency to the ones that I am used to seeing in scrubs and you don't have to stir it before use. It doesn't have that watery oil which separates the scrub from the rest of the product and it all binds together well making it easier to use and means that you don't get in such a mess. You only need to use a small amount of this product in order to get the desired results. As it is quite creamy, the product is easy to massage into the skin.
I apply it to my damp skin and massage it in using a circular motion, particularly concentrating on my tricky dry spots. The scrub is packed full of exfoliating particles, and they are hard without sharp and get the job done without making the skin feel sore. The product doesn't leave a mess at the bottom of your bath or shower once you are done as most of it dissolves away. The aroma lingers slightly on the skin but not in the way that the body butter does. Once the skin is dry then it feels much smoother and any signs of dryness or flakiness is gone. It doesn't irritate my skin or cause me to experience any discomfort. It is also quite hydrate and left my skin feel quite soft, and not tight as some scrubs can do. I still needed to use a moisturiser after use but I was happy with the condition and appearance of my skin.
All in all, this is a great little scrub which is packed full of natural ingredients to exfoliate, hydrate, nourish and protect my skin. It is easy to use, doesn't make a mess and left my skin feeling smooth, soft and nourished. It smells lovely and fresh, and I would happily recommend the product. It's a shame that it's a little bit pricey but I suppose you pay for what you get.
