Advantages: brighter, softer, smoother skin from the first use
Disadvantages: the cost
I became slightly addicted to Dermalogica products last summer. I bought a wide range of the products whilst on holiday in the US, I was impressed with everything that I bought, in fact throughout the holiday I kept on buying other items from the range!
One of the products that I bought was the Dermalogica exfoliating body scrub. I don't normally spend a lot on body scrubs, I normally just use a cheap and cheerfull body scrub, however as I mentioned I got a bit carried away with my Dermalogica spending spree and so I ended up buying this.
The body scrub comes in a 150g tube, with a flip top lid, and it stands upside down on its lid in the shower. This makes it really easy for wet sticky hands to grasp it in the shower and squeeze the body scrub out. I think that I paid around $22.00 in the US, I've seen it online here for around £20.00, as with all Dermalogica products it is much cheaper in the US.
This is a gorgeous creamy, lightly-foaming body scrub that dramatically smoothes, polishes and energizes your skin. It contains refreshing essential oils to revitalize your body and awaken your senses. Like the whole of the Dermalogica range it contains no artificial fragrance or colour, thereby making it suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
To use this you just squeeze a blob of the body scrub into your wet hands. Then massage it over your entire body and work it into a light lather. Rinse it off thoroughly and pat your skin dry.
A little tip that the sales assistant gave me was to mix the body scrub with your shower gel for a quick skin polishing cleansing shower if you are in a rush. She obviously was reccomending the Dermalogica shower gel (which I did end up buying!). I have actually followed this tip many times if I've been in a rush, and it works perfectly.
I have to say that I was really impressed with this body scrub, even after just the first use I noticed immediate results, my skin was much brighter and softer and smoother. Even my husband commented that my skin was softer. I found that I tended to use this once or twice a week on average, and it kept my skin in perfect, tip top condition. It was really quick and easy to use and easy to rinse off as well, I've used some body scrubs that have been murder to wash off, they tend to cling to your skin, not so with this one.
I would buy this body scrub again, however I will probably wait for our next holiday, or maybe ask for it as a gift. I'm not sure that I can justify £20.00 for a body scrub. I was really impressed with it though so maybe I'll just go ahead and buy it again anyway.........
Summary: brighter, softer, smoother skin from the first use
