I usually use products for a month or so before I review them, so that I can give them a thorough testing and write a reliable review. However, I have only used this Garnier body scrub a few times but I couldn't wait to write this review, because I am so in love with this product!
My skin felt so smooth after use! You can really feel the difference between the skin that has been exfoliated and the skin that hasn't. I sometimes get dry patches on my calves and my arms and this has definitely got rid of them. I also think this will be a great scrub for my keratosis pilaris, as it is scrubby and gritty enough to exfoliate thoroughly without being too harsh.
It has a gritty texture, due to the large sugar particles in it. If you don't like gritty exfoliators, then you won't like this. I found it easy to rinse off and it didn't leave any residue on my skin, which is fantastic! I hate when bathing products leave greasy residues on the skin as it makes me feel like I haven't showered properly.
It has a lovely zingy citrus smell, which is a great wake-me-up scent and perfect for early mornings!
The scrub is priced at £7.15 for 200ml of product, but I managed to pick it up for half price in Boots last week. I personally think £7 is quite expensive for Garnier, as their products usually cost around the £5 mark. However, upon using this scrub I would definitely repurchase it at full price.
This exfoliator is everything I wanted the Soap & Glory Flakeaway scrub to be when I was using it last year! I rarely dub products as 'Holy Grail', but I can forsee this becoming my HG body scrub.
Have you ever tried this exfoliator? What is your favourite body exfoliator?
