Product Review: Botanics Of Australia Smoothing Body Scrub

I can definitely see this product becoming a firm favourite in the body product stakes this coming summer… The Botanics of Australia Smoothing Body Scrub with Desert Lime and Wattle Seed is one of the more gentle body scrubs that I’ve come across and I’ve found it really great to use on my sensitive skin. Normally when I use a body scrub my skin becomes red and inflamed (so attractive) and really rather cross but with the BOA scrub this doesn’t seem to happen at all. The grain in this scrub is quite fine, so it may not be ideal for people looking for quite a harsh and hardworking body scrub, but those of you who prefer a gentler scrub would probably like this. The scrub contains “Vitamin C to promote youthful looking skin and encourage skin cell renewal. Helps revitalise skin tissue and improve circulation, resulting in healthy, glowing skin. The Wattle seed cleanses the pores and clarifies the complexion.” The smell is quite a strong, sweet lime fragrance that reminds me of lime cordial. I like it, but it’s definitely more of a spring/summer sort of scent for me. The Botanics of Australia Smoothing Body Scrub in Desert Lime and Wattle Seed retails for $12.95 AUD but can be purchased for $7.95 from Fashion Addict online.
