I am still on holiday mode and can't seem to get out of this lazy funk. I have had little to no motivation to blog, hence the lack of new content lately. However, this review is long overdue and I thought I'd try break this dry spell by blogging about a product I have been loving lately.
The Vanessa Megan Love Scrub contains a variety of oils that will aid in obtaining amazing soft, smooth and moisturized skin, as well as to help relax the mind and body. Coconut oil for its moisturizing properties, grapeseed oil for skin toning and tightenin, madarin essential oil which is beneficial for acne, congested and oily skin types, lavender essential oil for its soothing and calming effect, patchouli essential oil to promote grounding and balance, and peru balsam to calm and stimulate at the same time.
These essential oils result in an interesting smelling product. It has a citrusy scent that is a little spicy and warm. I normally do not go for scents like this, and was quite surprised at how much I liked it!
As you may know through previous posts that I do have a holy grail body scrub (Soap & Glory Pulp Friction in case you were wondering), so my standards were set extremely high and I honestly thought nothing could compare. However, the Love Scrub has ticked all the boxes that I look for in a scrub. It is gritty on dry skin but if you have sensitive skin, it is not as harsh on damp skin (I love my scrubs gritty). As mentioned before, it smells amazing (another box ticked). And although it is a bit oily, it doesn't leave my skin feeling yucky after washing off. Instead, my skin felt so amazingly soft and moisturized that I have forgotten to apply moisturizer on my skin after.
I also love the bits of petals added to the scrub, as it just makes it feel so much more luxurious, and somehow makes me feel relaxed too.
