How long have I been away from toiletries review? Well, you guess yourself. :p
But today I’m here to share about a body scrub! Yep. Don’t we love that tickly feeling of doing the exfoliation? Besides the good benefits of exfoliation (such as clearing up dead skin cells etc.), it’s also fun, isn’t it?
There are so many brands out there offering body scrub products with additional benefits. For example: the coffee scrub for cellulite treatment, scrub with brightening effect, and anything else. We can easily choose which one we need, but as usual, I’m still picky. Why? Because not all of them contain amazing ingredients. Instant-body-scrubs in the market usually contain paraben(s) or any other risky preservatives or emmolients. In other case, some body scrubs with foaming benefits (e.g The Body Shop's body polish) have Sodium Laureth Sulfate. It’s drying. And it’s not an eco-friendly material.
Even if they are cheaper, I’d rather go natural-er than ever by carefully choose what I really want.
So, one day, I went to Nicole’s Natural to find a good nat scrub. At first, I would buy the Green Tea one. After further thoughts, I put it back on the shelf and took the Citrus. It was on 50% discount, too! Then, why not. I love the smell anyway. It’s refillable anyway. It’s lovely anyway. Oh, sorry, too much ‘anyway’. LOL.
This is how the cream scrub looks like:
Some words stolen from the website (http://nicolesnatural.com/):
Ingredients: Ingredients: Deionized water, Butyrospermum parkii (Shea Butter), Helianthus annus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Vegetable glycerin, Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopherol acetate, Aloe barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Extract, Anthemis nobilis (Chamomile) Extract, Querchus alba (White Oak) Bark Extract, Mellisa officinalis (Lemon Balm) Leaf Extract, Thymus vulgaris (Thyme) Extract, Camelia sinensis (Green Tea) Extract, Symphytum Officinale (Comfrey) Extract, Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender) Extract, and Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Oryza sativa (Rice) Ground, Citrus reticulata (Mandarin) Peel Oil.
Experience: apply to body and use as a scrub, wash with warm water to tone and firm the skin, rich in antioxidants that helps slowing down the aging process, perfect for strengthening and energizing the body.
What I feel about Citrus Cream Scrub: Firstly, it smells like orange flavoured Scott’s Emulsion. So, from the scent side, I love it. Cause I like Scott’s Emulsion when I was younger. LOL. It’s a soft citrus fragrance which isn’t too strong, too artificial, or too citrusy. You get what I mean?
Number two. The beads are nice! It exfoliate gently, I even use it on my face and after that the whole skin of mine get softer. It’s just the amount of those natural beads is a little random, so we really have to make sure that all surfaces are scrubbed. Or you’ll just get the cream without the rice-beads.
And then? Yes, it’s creamy! I can’t resist creamy stuff. From edible ones to non-edible ones. Hahaha. I love eating whipped creams and cream soup. And now I have a creamy scrub that is all-natural, refillable, and beneficial. Life is good, baby! *dramatic*
The price: IDR 275.000, but as I mentioned, I got 50% off. And I’m going to refill the jar so I’ll get another little discount. :)
Thanks for reading, anyway! Have a luxurious bath, people! It’ll soothe your mind and you’ll have fun. :)
