I love trying out new body scrubs and really like all the ones I've tried in the past - this particular scrub from The Body Deli is no exception! The Body Deli are an established brand founded over 10 years ago in California, specialising in handmade skincare using natural raw superfood ingredients. A selection of their products have just launched in the UK exclusively at abeautifulworld, one of my favourite online natural beauty stores.
I was lucky enough to be sent the Green Detox Body Scrub* (RRP £28.00) a couple of weeks ago to try ahead of the launch and fell in love with it on first use! It's formulated with a variety of sprouted greens, botanicals, herbs, sea vegetables and essential oils to create this therapeutic cleansing and detoxifying scrub. The ingredients were particularly selected as they help release toxins from the skin and lymphatic system by enhancing circulation and stimulating the body's natural detoxification process.
The scrub is pale green in colour with plenty of little sea salt grains to help pull toxins from the skin. Thanks to the wide variety of ingredients included, the scrub has quite a unique and interesting scent. It's difficult to explain and I know this probably isn't too helpful, but the only way I can think to describe the scent is "green"! If I had to pinpoint the main scents I would say mint and citrus but with a slight herbal note too. Personally, one little thing I'm not too crazy about is how the scent lingers on the skin right through the day, but that's just my own preference. If you love the scents of your products to linger, this scrub fits the bill perfectly!
To use, you just massage a small amount onto wet skin in the bath or shower, focusing on the arms, legs, back, shoulders and torso, then rinse. It also says on the tub that focusing specifically on the armpit and inner thigh helps to get the maximum detoxifying benefits. One thing you need to be careful of when rinsing is the surface of the bath/shower can become quite slippery from the oils and butters, but I haven't found this to be too much of an issue!
I've been using this scrub 2-3 times per week and my skin is loving it! Every time I use this my skin is so soft and I feel kind of energised afterwards too so it's great to use as a wake up call in the morning! I'm loving this product but I'm not sure if I would purchase this particular scrub again. The Body Deli have a selection of other scrubs though, including Coconut Creme, Moroccan Mint and Tahitian Vanilla - I'm very tempted to try the Coconut or Mint next time!
