I am all about pampering myself especially when it comes to my skin! I have used so many toners in the past, but they all always lacked something. Either they would make my skin too tight or too dry, bottom line i wasn't happy. But when my sister introduced me to The Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Toner, i was a little skeptical, considering my past experiences with toners. I have always loved Body Shop products so I was open to try it out. And let me tell you guys, this product is literally a 2 in 1 product! It doubles up as a toner and a moisturizer. And since you all know I'm all about short cuts, I was sold!
For about a month now, I've been using the Alba Bontanica face and body scrub, and i have to say I have been loving it!!
To be honest, the first thing that attracted me to this product, was it's simple packaging! I know, that must be weird to expect haha, but it was so simple and to the point. I really like that in products, where they are just all about the product, and less about fluff and mumbo-jumbo! The simple white base and green lettering is simple and chic, and very calming to look at also!
The consistency of the scrub is a mix between liquid and gel. It's got tiny beads that exfoliate your skin gently, and are well blended with the scrub.
The scent is peppermint, which is another bonus for me! Since i love taking showers at night, I think it's so calming and relaxing right before bed!
The best part of this scrub is that, unlike most scrubs, this product DOES NOT leave your skin feeling dry and tight! Every time I have used it, it's left my skin feeling soft and moisturized! I mean lets face it, can there be anything better? :)
Have you tried it yet? What is your favorite face/body scrub?
