I have been on the hunt for a good body scrub for some time now and am reluctant to spend a lot of money as I have yet to find one I like. The Botanics range appeals to me as they use natural plant extracts that are gentle on your skin so I thought I would give the delicious smelling moisturising scrub a go.
According to the blurb it will give you clearer, smoother skin. It contains grapeseed oil and promises to exfoliate, cleanse and moisturise in one go. On top of that, the price is a complete bargain and you get 450 mls of product.
I followed the directions; applied it to damp skin and rinsed off thoroughly. Except that it wouldn’t come off. I took the word scrub to a whole new level. I scrubbed and scrubbed and although some of it came off, a thin film remained, which can only be described as slimy. I dried off in the hope that it sinks into your skin but no, it wasn’t going anywhere. My clothes also adhered to it. Gross.
Needless to say, I hated it. I have read some other reviews and some people seem to love it.
The idea of a scrub to me is that it “scrubs” and then you are clean with no sign of the product you just used apart from maybe a nice smell.
