Our showers are usually filled with a lot of hair care and facial care products but another essential that should be present is a body scrub especially in the summers. There are various benefits of using a body scrub like-
- It improves Skin Texture: Dead skin cells don’t always shed evenly hence it’s common to have uneven skin. Regular scrubbing helps to get rid of it and reveal the soft skin underneath.
- Prevents Body Acne: Just like on the face, body scrubs clear away the dead skin and dirt that can clog pores and cause body acne.
- Post-Tan Treatment: Constant exposure to the sun can lead to the tanning of the skin. The tanned uneven coloured skin can be avoided by regular scrubbing.
- Helps Prevent Cellulite: One amazing advantage of body scrub treatments many people don’t know about is that they may prevent cellulite. The uneven appearance of cellulite results from fat expanding and pushing up to the skin’s surface. An exfoliating body scrub, especially one that’s coupled with a massage, stimulates the circulation of the blood and lymph vessels, prevents this from happening, maintaining and nourishing the system intended to prevent this from happening in the first place.
Now that you know why a body scrub is important, read on more to find out about a gentle detoxifying scrub.

Packaging: It comes in a huge plastic tub with a black lid.
Smell: The only con of this scrub is the fragrance. It has a very weird fragrance which to me slightly smells like green tea glue if such a thing existed. Thankfully the fragrance is mild and doesn’t last so it’s not too much of a bother. I talked to the brand about it and they said they are working on improving it. It increased my respect for them as they took criticism seriously and decided to work upon it.
My Experience: I love using body scrubs they are one of my favourite things to pamper myself with. I have used a lot of scrubs and this is one of the gentlest scrubs I have used. If you have sensitive skin which reacts badly to harsh scrubs you can give this a try. It’s mild yet effective and perfect for summers. A teaspoon is enough to cover the whole body so this huge tub will last for a long time which makes it total value for money. It’s creamy in nature and has minute green particles in it. I have been using it twice a week and it helped in fading my body acne scars. They are not completely gone but they have lightened considerably and since I have started using it no new ones have developed for which I’m really thankful. It doesn’t dry out the skin. It is hands down one of the most gentle scrubs I have ever used since it feels like an exfoliating body wash more rather than a scrub.
