Surprising but honestly, I have never used a body scrub before. I am not really convinced with using an additional bath item which I only need to use once or twice a week. Will such a product make a difference on my skin? Really? Once a week use?
I am not much of an exfoliation type. I somehow find it a burden to remember to use something once or twice a week as opposed to something that I just simply use everyday. Little did I know how these simple things can actually make a significant difference.
So, okay, I decided to give scrubbing a try. I decided to use Elianto’s Natural Therapy Botanicals Body Scrub, also supposed to be whitening, moisturizing and an anti-oxidant. This is my first time to use a body scrub so I looked for a botanical or natural-based product. I was glad to come across this item while shopping for my usual nail colors at this brand’s outlet in MidValley, conveniently located at an island in front of Bread Story, lower ground floor.
This body scrub is formulated with extracts from 10 different plants and flowers, meant to give hydration and nourishment to the skin. The 10 different plants and flowers as listed in its ingredients are Impatiens Balsamina, Oppuntia Coccinellifera, Artemisia Capillaris, Chrysanthemum Inula Britannica, Bambusa Vulgaris, Pinus Densiflora, Centella Asiatica, Broussonetia Kazinaki Root, Camellia Sinensis, and Nelumbo Nucifera. Ok, I only recognize chrysanthemum, haha!
It also contains Vitamin E Acetate and antioxidants which are good to prevent dryness and premature skin aging.
Another good thing is that it doesn’t contain parabens.
The scrub is brown in color with those small suds. Smells fantastic.
Quite easy to spread and apply all over the body when mixed with water. Feels great and very soothing.
There is no recommendation on how often to use in a week so I just started with once a week (since this is my first time). After using my usual body wash, I squeezed out 2-pea size amount for every area of my body: arms, chest and tummy, back, legs…feet.
I’d say I’m enlightened…a revelation on how using scrub can actually make a difference. Aside from the fact that it’s so relaxing to use a body scrub, with the combined massaging and aroma, my skin actually feels a lot smoother and refreshed after. I’ve been using it for a month already and my skin feels healthier. My legs used to feel dry before but I feel that my once-a-week body scrub sessions using Elianto’s Natural Therapy have made my skin better. I’d definitely continue to use, maybe increase it to twice a week…
This item retails at RM31, available at Elianto outlets.
