Sugar & Almond Scrub
Gentle body scrub, scented with sumptuous rose & mandarin
A body scrub balm made with rich almond oil and unbleached sugar. You've been asking for a replacement for our Shower Scrub Salts for a while, so we've listened. This is an incredibly rich mixture laden with sugar to softly exfoliate and moisturise at the same time. The almond oil, shea butter and olive oil and beeswax suspend the sugar so it's ready for you to scoop out and apply with your hands, working from your extremeties toward your heart, as usual with exfoliating. This is a stunning product to use before applying tanning products for example, but sometimes it's just nice to have a good old scrub. As it's such a rich balm, it might be a good idea to do this in the shower or bath so you can wash off the sugar easily and a little bit of soap will take off any excess balm. The combination of rose and manadarin essential oils is a new one for us too, but we're a bit in love with it. The mandarin gives the rose a fresh twist, keeping it light and airy.
The scrub can be used all over your body, it's too rough to use on your face but it's amazing on legs and arms. Or give a special treat to yourself and use it before a manicure or pedicure for a huge extra boost of moisture. We discovered a great use for it as we were testing it, it's also a brilliant pre-shaving product to use in the shower. Slather your legs in the balm, scrub away to loosen rough patches and gently rinse off the sugar, the remaining oil left behind on your skin provides great slip for your razor and still leaves your legs feeling superstar smooth.
