It’s been a while since I’ve used a commercial body scrub. Well, actually, it’s been a while since I last scrubbed my body (but I’m still bathing daily alright). Anyway, seeing how much I like their shampoo, I decided to give the Giovanni Hot Chocolate Sugar Scrub a go. I suppose I can always settle for a homemade scrub but at less than US$10 a tub, I think this product is cost effective enough compared to making one of my own. In any case, it won’t be possible to get almost similar ingredients for that price too.
Some products can really pique my interest just by their names or their descriptions alone. Like this one—Dr. Woods Shea Vision Pure Black Soap with Organic Shea Butter. Now, pure black soap already sounds too exotic but as if that isn’t enough as a selling point, this one is touted as an all-in-one cleanser, good enough for my face, body and also my entire household! Why, it says this can be used for dishes, floors, counters and more! Wow, I never knew my skin and my floor can share the same cleanser! How dismal is it to know that my skin is basically no different from my floor. o.O The good thing though, is that for an all-in-one cleanser for me and my household, this product is really affordable. The 473ml bottle costs US$7.37. It’s probably the cheapest cleanser I’ve used thus far!
So it says on the Acure Organics Cell Stimulating Facial mask that you’re to apply the mask over your face until you look like a green sea-monster. That sure sounds intriguing and fun but it was not that that stimulated my purchasing decision. What had spurred my purchase were the rather glowing online reviews plus the fact that I’m almost done with my Now Solutions European Clay Power. Well, I also needed something new to play with and after using the Acure mask a few times now, I’ve to agree that it is indeed stimulating…too stimulating actually.
A reader had emailed me recently asking me about the body washes that I’m using. Actually, I have been using a soap from Soap Paradise mostly but on some days, I alternate with a body wash. I was using one from NutriBiotic and currently, trying out the Nature’s Baby Organics that I bought for my son. Both products were purchased from iHerb. I’ll just be upfront by stating that there is nothing outstanding about these body washes. They’re both in the natural category and the only thing worth mentioning is that they’re affordable.
