Elemis Skin Nourishing Body Scrub Review

Being a big fan of Elemis’ Nourishing range, Shower Cream and Milk Bath are fantastic products, I had high hopes for their Nourishing Body Scrub.

Here is how it looks like, it comes in a chic dark blue tube which could also work for boys (which means that your man can borrow it when you don’t know).

As for the product itself – I really love it! The texture is creamy and it sticks to the  skin, without falling all over the bath/shower and making a mess.  I personally use it on the dry skin and I don’t need that much [product], so the tube will last me for some time.

The scrub contains natural exfoliators of rice, bamboo and bora bora sand which are exfoliating  enough (just how I love it, I personally don’t like when scrubs are too smooth, know what I mean?) but not too harsh. I’d say that my skin feels soft and smooth afterwards.

But what about the nourishing claims?

Elemis Skin Nourishing Body  contains sweet almond, macadamia and wheat germ oils, milk protein  and  organic oat extract which means that the skin afterwards is not dried out, tight or itchy.

Although I personally still have to use cream, as I have very dry skin, you may get away without it.

It is nice to see when the promises are true actually.

The price is £28.50/$46 for 200ml from Feel Unique.

    Argh, one of those things that sound amazing, but are too darn pricey – I just can’t justify that amount for a body scrub, that will only last me a few weeks! 🙁 And so, the search continues!

      I know but I’ve actually re-purchased one of the brand’s scrubs in the past, they are really nice. And have you tried Garnier one in a yellow tube? I think it was pretty nice for the price (but I had it years ago, so hope it’s the same formula and is still available) x

    Nope, haven’t tried that one, for some reason as much as I adore Garnier hair products, their body stuff never really won me over! In all fairness, this Elemis one does sounds amazing, the ingredients seem heavenly for our skintype, but the price mark makes it more of a special treatment (and I scrub every two showers , so, yeah)! So far I enjoy using the HoG scrubs, or the TBS coconut one (hate their oily sugar scrubs), and my all time fav is the Hei Poa one, which was lovely and very affordable, unfortunately seeing who stocks it requires some research! I keep my fingers crossed that one day I’ll find my HG one!

      Oh, I have never tried HP scrubs, now I am interested. And I personally really love Garnier’s body lotion for very dry skin (in red bottle), THE best affordable option I have ever tried.
