An absolute treat!
This is MY kind of product! Amazingly scrubby and invigorating with a really luxurious fragrance; quite herbal and woody.
As soon as the scrub comes into contact with the skin it heats up wonderfully, although it does cool down after a few seconds as you rub it in, but the overall effect of a self-heating product and the physical action of rubbing it in, really wams you up! And a little goes a really long way, as like the kyphi hot scrub; it is quite 'thick set' and yet spreads so easily.
The fragrance is subtle yet totally fills the bathroom and really helps to create the spa atmosphere and it lingers on your skin.
It rinses away easily and leaves the skin feeling babys bum soft and silky, without a dry patch in sight and is totally invigorating.
A truly wonderful product to have on your bathroom shelf!

I don't do scrubs. Have never done a scrub. Scrubs, come again? I'd say, if they came as a freebie in a gift set. (Who doesn't come every Christmas...)
So it wouldn't be wrong to say my daily bathing ritual is usually a real quickie, a 3 minute blast in the shower, a 10 min dip in the bath with bubbles. I may or mayn't bother with body gloves, the loofah, or any other dry skin blasters.
So when I received this I was skeptical - kitchen sugar fancily packaged, what a fad! Heavens, I was indeed blown away on e grey January when I found it, unused and lonely in a corner. And, I eat my words. Scrubs are worth it. Totally. If you can't spa in some posh hotel, then you can gloriously spa at home.
Now, it's not as good as my holy body gloves, I won't tell tall tales, but for a real weekly treat, this is a handsome choice. I'm just lucky my first foray in with body scrubs was this good.
Sugar is so much nicer than salt. Unless you're scrubbing your soles, prefer sugar. These essential oils are potent and generous, and best yet, you needn't bother with lotion afters given the natural oils inside.
It's not cheap, but I've had at least 8 go's (generous full body) from one jar. Lovely texture, warming, gingery, moisturising (so important) and abrasive (it works). What more do you want? Pay a fair price for a decent scrub, and you shalt receive!
