I’m Such a Scrubber…!
I think that I am addicted to body and face scrubs.
The above is only a quarter of my collection; I love the creamy/gritty feeling of them against my skin and i’ll leave it at that as it may start to sound a bit weird :S lmao!
Last week, I added a new scrub to my collection:
Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Body Scrub
Key Ingredients: Shea & Jojoba butter, ground loofah, soy milk and honey.
What with my obsession with all things natural, I snapped up the chance to purchase this scrub as recommended by my Mum (we share the same skin type).
“Creme de Corps Body Polish has a luxurious creamy formula, combining shea & jojoba butters with ground loofah. It leaves skin feeling comfortably soft, smooth, hydrated and gently scented by the popular Soy Milk & Honey fragrance.”
I already had high expectations for the body polish when I bought it as I am a big fan of the ingredients, however when I started using it, I was amazed to find out how luxurious it really is! Yes, the price-tag is a little hefty but the scrub does an amazing job of exfoliating my skin and leaving it silky smooth.
Creme de Corps appeases the senses with its delicate coconut scent and creamy, thick butter. The scrub has the consistency of heavily whipped cream mixed with brown sugar (if that makes sense). It almost feels like a moisturizer. It only takes a little dot to cover a large area of the body (I mostly use mine on my arms/shoulders, legs and tummy) and the granules are not too harsh, but big enough to have a significant effect on the scrubbage.
My skin feels ultra soft and does not leave it feeling dry at all after using. I love the thick consistency and the fact that it leaves a slightly ‘glowy’ sheen after use. The jojoba and shea butters keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day as well as smelling really good. The scent isn’t overpowering, but just enough for you to take notice. I’m so happy that I purchased this; it’s already one of my favorites of 2012 and although I can be a bit frugal (LOL) I will definitively repurchase this; I see it as an investment!
Have you used this or anything from the Creme de Corps collection before?
