Do You Want Salt or Sugar With That?
This is something you have to ask yourself now when deciding upon a body scrub. Not only are you faced with, do I want a sugar or salt in my scrub but also do I want oil in my scrub or not? I thought we’d seen it all when it came to these body exfoliating products but then I experienced EMINENCE ORGANIC Cranberry Pomegranate Sugar Scrub ($48/8.4oz @ dermstore.com). Wowee!
The concoction is packed in a separate baggie inside the plastic container because it is so gooey. And in this case gooey is good. It stays where you apply it instead of sliding off your skin and down the drain or splattered against the shower walls. And it truly smells like fresh cranberries so much so that I could eat it. Well I didn’t eat it but I tasted a little. Sugar. And the ingredients read like a cooking recipe: Cranberry, Pomegranate, Raw Sugar Cane Granules, Green Tea, Comfrey, Butcher's Broom (relieves inflammation), Sweet Almond, Grape Seed Oil, and Ground Flaxseeds. And that’s all of them! It does have Grape Seed in it but it’s a very low concentrate so there won’t be any slipping in the tub. This is a line to pay attention to.
