Caudalie Crushed Cabernet Scrub
I received this scrub (60g) as a free gift with purchase from Lookfantastic or Hqhair, I can't remember but it is a fantastic free gift and I love this brand and product.
- Product description (from salonskincare)

- About the product
I have the 60g or 2.1 oz tub. I love the packaging for this scrub, the packaging is plastic but the lid is similar to a kilner jar lid whereby the lid clicks into place with a metal lever - I love the packaging and it helps keep water getting in the tub and ruining the scrub. The product is made in France, the scrub is 99% natural and it is from the Caudalie vinotherapie range.
- Using the product and results
The scrub in the packaging looks really nice, it is so nicely and neatly presented - I think it would make a great gift, not just because the brand is fairly expensive but the brand reputation and product quality is so high. I use a £2 coin sized amount of product per limb etc as you don't need a lot of product per use. The scrub contains lots of small seeds included in a body milk type solution, although the scrub is really thick and it has a smooth but gritty texture. When applied the scrub does not just fall off the skin like some scrubs I have used as it is fairly thick. The scent of this product is quite nice, although it is definitely not for everyone, the scent smells like a lot of Caudalie products - very natural, fresh and 'green'/herbal which I like.
The scrub feels exfoliating but smooth and it feels like it does exfoliate the skin well until the body milk part of the scrub thins. The scrub is great, it does not feel too abrasive or harsh on the skin and the body milk type solution makes the skin smooth, soft and moisturised. This product is like a scrub and body milk/moisturiser combined which is great. One thing I hate about some body scrubs is that they can contain a oily layer and leave the skin feeling oily and greasy but this product does not contain oil so it leaves the skin feeling like skin, just smoother, clean and moisturised. Overall, a fantastic brand and a fantastic product - I definitely recommend this product if you have dry skin or you want a body scrub that is not too harsh but it still works well and moisturises the skin as well.
- Price and availability
I received this as a free gift but it can be purchased from numerous online sites such as salonskincare (£19.29), spacenk (£21.50 for 150g) and lookfantastic (£22).
