Planet Spa Dead Sea Minerals Exfoliating Scrub
Advantages: Is rich in oil, buffs dead skin away. Great fragrance.
I got this product as a present recently alongside a tube of body butter in the same range. If you do ever get this body scrub I'd advise following up with the body butter as they work well and are a real treat if used consecutively. This product is called Planet Spa Dead Sea Minerals Exfoliating Body Scrub and it's manufactured by the brand Avon. Products are sold both online and through catalogues provided by Avon representatives.
The body scrub comes in a large 150ml sized tube which is soft plastic so not recyclable. The packaging design is grey with a sophisticated logo and this looks like a product that might be quite expensive. Full ingredients are printed on the side of the tube whilst instructions for use are also printed in multiple languages. The tube is fitted with a large flip lid which has a cut away edge so you can prise the lid open with a fingertip. It's simple to flick open and also quite secure although I would tape this lid down if I intended to travel with it.
The body scrub is grey in colour which at first looks rather strange. It's a blend of what looks like salt, gel, oil and small black seeds. I need surprisingly very little product as a tiny pea sized amount manages to cover one whole arm.
When I rub this scrub into my skin it turns white and looks like soap suds without any water added. The salty grains stay intact unless you add water in which case they quickly melt away. The sensation feels like I am being tickled and they have got the texture of the body scrub just right. It's not so gritty that it hurts but it's tough enough to buff away old skin.
The body scrub has an oily base and when you rub it into your skin you can instantly feel that slick oily softness transferring to your skin. It's like giving yourself a mini massage. Instructions for use state to cover over the skin with circular movements so that you can exfoliate with the most effectiveness. It feels really good and it actually makes me smile as it feels like such a treat.
The body scrub is very effective at helping to ease away any old skin and reveal a new healthier skin. It's also useful for using over shaved areas as any ingrown hairs can be 'released' by working this scrub over the top of them.
The body scrub has a lovely fragrance which is the same as the body butter in the same range. The fragrance reminds me of the ocean, salty sea breezes, lavender flowers and soap. It's a high quality fragrance and one that makes me feel clean, refreshed and smelling like a woman.
I love the way my skin glistens and looks so healthy after using the body scrub and I follow it up by applying the matching body butter, although the oiliness of the scrub means that no extra moisturising is really needed.
I am really enjoying using this body scrub and would say that it's one of the best ones I've ever used. It feels so good to use as it massages the skin, it leaves my skin soft and looking good and it smells wonderful too. I would recommend it.
Summary: The perfect body scrub.
