PRODUCT REVIEW | SKIN
By Huda Heidi Kattan
I think we all know by now, that beauty can sometimes be an illusion! Our skin may look soft but feel awful! For me, I have SERIOUSLY dry skin and unless I take really good care of it, it is super dry and rough (and yes, I’ve even seen scales before, but thankfully not in a looong time). When I first got the Lime & Ginger Body Scrub from Elemis I was kind of unsure, it looks kind of dry when you open it–just like a mix of salts and minerals. My manicurist first reaction when she saw this was, what did you do with the oil?! After trying it, I was blown away with not only how well it smoothed away dead skin but how incredibly SOOOOOFT it left my skin!
It does have a light oil inside, but it’s just not drenched in it! Once you make your skin a little damp, apply the scrub and work it into your skin! It almost emulsifies into your skin and the scrub really works wonders at getting rid of rough spots! The lime and ginger mix in this make it a great energizing scrub as well! My first thought after I started to use this was, how can I recreate this! Still haven’t got it just yet, but I am in love with this!! Like seriously loving it!
