(038) Scrub Loving!



sc1

Since my recent trip to Marrakech and in particular my experience at Les Bains de Marrakech (Full post HERE) I have been on a quest to keep my skin as silky smooth as possible. I hate winter with a passion, YES I love the comfort of being indoors and watching it from the inside but I hate how it makes me feel and how it impacts on everything from my mood, food and more importantly my skin. I love a good body scrub, now as I mentioned in my post from LBDM I now know what the real definition of body scrubbing is and while I may not come close here are a few products I have been using in an attempt to maintain soft, smooth skin! 

REN Moroccan Rose Otto Sugar Body Polish

Sticking with the Moroccan theme and no stranger to my blog this sugar scrub has been a favourite for a while. The texture is grainy and gritty but in such a beautiful sweet smelling way, I love the finish and the way in which my body feels the full benefit of the Moroccan rose oil. It leaves my skin silky with the gorgeous hint of rose. 

Available HERE.

Bliss Vanilla + Bergamot Body Buff

Now this is a relatively new scrub for me and I have only used it a few times but so far I am loving it. The blend between vanilla and bergamot is amazing, it really balances out the sweetness of the vanilla. For some reason to me it smells like Christmas to me I think it kind of reminds me of a more muted scent of frankincense. This scrub is more creamy and less grainy but I have to say it left my skin feeling super soft. The shea butter and sweet almond oil are great ingredients for moisturising and hydrating the skin. 

Available HERE.


Exfoliating Mitt

Now this one I picked up in Marrakech in the souk and is similar to what they use in the Hammam process. I find the texture to be slightly rougher than your average drugstore mitt. It's perfect for exfoliating away dead skin cells and leaving your skin super silky. 

Bliss Fat Girl Slimulator

I have been using this for the last year and is fab for circulation, this is less of a scrubbing tool but more one that will help to reduce the appearance of cellulite and helps with circularation. I really notice a difference from using this and I've been doing so for quite a while. 

Available HERE.

Do you like to body scrub? What are your favourites?

Sorry for the lack of posting this week, I am still trying to get over this nasty cold I have hopefully I'll have a lot more for you over the weekend. 

Lots of Love

  1. I'm so lazy when it comes to body scrubbing! I do my arms and chest and that's it usually unless it's the summertime and my legs are out, then they get the scrubby treatment. I love Soap and Glory's Flake Away body scrub, it's amazing!

  4. I love body scrubs, but only treat myself to an expensive one once in a while. Now I'm really tempted to try the ones you've just mentionned.

  5. I love limited edition scrubs from a little company called Arcana Soaps in America. Paired with a Buffy scrub bar from Lush it really does leave your skin silky smooth.
