African Botanics Detoxifying Salt & Sugar Body Scrub


Why, some of you might wonder, have I started caring so much about scrubs lately? Spring is near. I know it’s a cliché to say this, but being a beauty writer, blogger and well connoisseur, I can’t help but fret over flakes. It’s because my olive skin tends to show dry skin more than fairer types. And, being a bit of a foot freak, there’s no way you’ll ever see calluses or anything close to dry skin on these tootsies.

Having a 34” inseam (don’t hate…) also means I’ve got long pins to scrub up. So yes, I go through more jars and tubs than most of you probably do. But, if there’s one thing I’ve recently learned about using a scrub, it’s that oil-based ones do double duty – they scruff the skin and rub the oil into fresh, renewed skin. A double whammy! And, isn't is a shame so many great ones are largely ignored in the beauty blogosphere?

With Marula hot on trend, readying to dethrone Argan’s popularity ride, African Botanics Detoxifying Salt & Sugar Body Scrub helps you transform the seasonal dull skin into something with glow and leave skin awashed with Marula.

Tests show Marula has higher levels of antioxidants and omega 9 acid than Argan or Grape Seed oil. Both Raw Cane Sugar and Himalayan Salt Crystals (both in fine grain sizes) are blended with sun dappled Neroli and fizzy Grapefruit. The tang of the two essentials is what gives you an uplifting feel when the scrub is used in long, upward strokes and a light hand. And, it's good to keep the oil and aromatics on your skin, if you can, so skip the shower gel and rinse off for super smooth skin ready for strapless dresses.

This makes skin and...me, happy.
