Just recently the lovely Bodyblendz team contacted me and asked me if I’d like to receive one of their body scrubs to share with my viewers and readers. Of course, I said yes! I love body scrubs and love adding them into my regular Sunday pamper routine. I find them a treat to use and love how they make my skin feel renewed, silky and soft. I particularly love using them during the summer months when I occasionally apply a light layer of fake tan. It helps my tan to go on smoothly, evenly and also helps it to last.
I was really happy to open my package and see that Bodyblendz had sent me their Coffee Shimmer Scrub. This scrub contains a blend of select organic essential oils, extracts and minerals combined together with the finest ground Arabica coffee beans. The purest activated charcoal finishes the combination off nicely.
The Arabica coffee beans in the formula are activated with charcoal and sugar which help to detoxify and exfoliate the skin, and the scrub also contains mica minerals that promises to leave skin shimmering with a long lasting shine. The green tea, vitamin E and essential oils work to leave skin feeling deeply hydrated.
The scrub itself is ashy grey in colour and has quite a strong scent. In all honesty, I don’t really like the smell of the scrub at all, but found that it didn’t really bother me once I started to use it. I decided to put it to the test one evening in the shower where I applied it to wet skin and started to work it in with circular motions. I instantly felt how hydrating the scrub was and saw a lovely shine to my skin as I used it. I allowed the scrub to sit on my skin for the recommended two minutes to ensure maximum absorption before rinsing it away. The scrub didn’t feel too abrasive on my skin at all, but still felt like it was doing a whole lot of good to exfoliate any dry, flaky patches that might be dulling my skin. After rinsing it away, I was left with super soft skin that felt renewed and nourished.
After drying off after my shower, my skin looked healthy with a lovely glow and felt so soft too. That soft that I kept getting my Mum to feel how smooth my leg felt as we sat watching TV together that night!
It’s a really great scrub to try and the packaging is pretty cool too!
