How are you all?
This is the first of two posts today, although the other one won't go live until later tonight ;) I just wanted to drop by and tell you all about an amazing product that I've been using to keep cool annd refreshed in this horrible muggy/crappy weather we're having!
The product is ARK invigorating body scrub. ARK tailor your skincare to your age, they have 'age prepare' (teen to 30), age maintain (30-50) and age repair (50 and beyond). I think this is a great concept for a skincare brand but even better than that, ARK have then created an essentials range that can be used across all 3 age categories! I love it! The invigorating body scrub is part of the essentials range.
The packaging is simple, stylish and sturdy. Perfect when it can potentially be used by 15-70+ year olds! I don't know any 60-70 year olds who want their products in bright pink/yellow/green bottles ;) The packaging is just right for everyone.
As you can see, the thick cream is PACKED with little 'scrubby bits' and a little goes a very long way :)
In terms of scrubbing, this doesn't beat my elemis body polish BUT the scent and 'after effects' or this ARK scrub are incredible! It smells like a mixture of herbal, energising scents and a strong, minty, refreshing scent (imagine liz earle mixed with the original source mint shower gel)! It smells so, so, SO good!
The thing I like most about this is that it cools the skin and when you rinse it off you're all tingly and cool and soft and refreshed. It's something I've never experienced before with a body scrub and it's this little detail thats had me absolutely addicted to using this on hot muggy days, or on my feet when they're feeling really warm and in need of a bit of pampering.
I would highly recommend this scrub if you love products that cool you down and soothe you when you're bathing/showering. It leaves my skin silky soft and smooth, and of course, all tingly (my favourite thing about it). Also, because it's suitable for all ages and skin types - it's suitable for every single one of you lot! no excuses!
This retails at £24 for 200ml here which I think is really reasonable for such a fantastic product that you need so little of! I honestly use about a 10p sized blob to do my whole body (and I'm no skinny minny!). You can (and should!) buy it here.
Thanks so much for reading,
