You may of read my review of almond coconut milk soufflé body creme which I absolutely fell in love with referring to it as heaven in a jar, read full review here

So here’s my review of the body scrub which came in the same set.

The Promise
Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Scrub is a polishing scrub with sugar granules and exfoliating beads to gently sloughs skin as well as clarify and tone. The Creamy texture removes dead skin cells from the skin’s surface leaving skin soft and silky.

The Science Bit
Macadamia Nut and Sweet Almond Oils moisturize, Vitamin A&E protect and soothe. Can be used every other day, but mild enough for every day usage. Almond Coconut Milk is a warm, rich fragrance with powdered sugar, vanilla extract and a hint of cinnamon. Includes notes of vanilla mousse as well as vanilla meringue.

My Verdict
I love the luxury look of having a body scrub in a glass jar, looks great in my bathroom. The almond Coconut Milk is a seductive, warm and comforting which is a rich and alluring experience. The texture is quite different to what I normally experience with body scrubs. It contains exfoliating beads and sugar in large chunky pieces, the cream is quite gooey, almost like a thick creamed rice pudding!

At first I wasn’t sure if I would like this kind of gooey texture on my skin in the shower…well all I can say is that it is “different” I’m not in love with it but it certainly does leave my skin feeling polished and silky smooth as it promises and a delicate aroma lingers on my skin.

I personally prefer body scrubs with a paste like texture and rounded small exfoliates rather than big chunky rectangular shapes.

Summary
The quality of ingredients of this scrub is good however I find it too sticky and therefore wouldn’t re-purchase. That said it does give a lovely result. Purchase yours here

This mask is ideal for oily skin, it purifies leaving your skin smooth with a satisfying matt completion. Apply a think layer to your skin avoiding the eye area.

20140302-170200.jpgThe consistency is thick, the smell is very refreshing. It feels tingly when first applied. Lay back in comfy clothes (I’m in my pj’s) relax and take deep breathes, allow your shoulders to hang low and close your eyes. The mask turns from a thick creamy consistency to clay and sets, it doesn’t feel dry but has that funny limited movement feeling which I quite like as it means I can’t speak! Yes me not speaking for a whole 10mins! Bliss.
20140302-170655.jpgIt turns to a chalky white Colour. Now it’s time to remove the mask. Wet your fingers and massage gently. Wash off with warm water, I like to use a soft face cloth. Rinse well and do not rub your skin. Pat your skin dry and ta-dah!! Refreshed radiant skin that is rid of oily areas and feels soft and smooth.

20140302-171845.jpgThe price tag £39 for this mask in my opinion is spot on for its results. It can be used weekly, I like to use it as a once a month beauty indulgent treat rather than a weekly essential.
