LET'S talk dry skin. Whenever the seasons change my skin seems to take a turn for the worst, and when summer is around the corner it's my legs that start drying up. Imagine a snake that's just about to shed it's skin, and that's about where my legs stand in the hotter months. - not exactly ideal when I'm trying to get my (bottled) tan on. After trying countless body scrubs and exfoliators over the past few years I can 110% say that these little Babescrub packets of coffee, salty, greeny goodness are complete game changers. And all natural, which is always a plus for me.
The Coffee Body Scrub is by far my favourite of the three, because it quite literally smells like a coffee shop. Forget that artificial coffee smell - when rubbing this all over my limbs it feels as though I'm drenching myself in the most freshly ground cup of joe, minus the obvious burning sensation. Caffeine is seriously effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite when rubbed on the body and - when combined with natural sugars and organic oils - it makes the perfect dry skin banisher.
The next concoction can be used as both a body scrub and a relaxing bath soak. The Himalayan Pink Salt Scrubcontains just that - Himalayan pink salt - which helps to sooth sore muscles, lower blood pressure and detoxify the body. I prefer to use this as a soak compared to a scrub purely because it's a bit more abrasive than the others, which can sometimes effect my sensitive skin. In fact, I might make some time for a little soak tonight
Next up is the Green Tea Body Scrub, which I was most afraid of trying. i think it's safe to say that green tea is probably one of my least favourite drinks, so rubbing it all over my skin is something I wasn't exactly excited to do. However, despite the tea-like smell (go figure) this scrub is probably my favourite for getting rid of dead skin. It's probably the least abrasive of the three, but still leaves me with silky soft skin. The ingredients include green tea (a great antioxident), seaweed (a cellulite buster) and essential oils that are rich in Vitamin E to keep skin nourished.
