If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I'm all about scrubs for exfoliating my body. It's so important to remove dead skin cells if you want to get truly soft and glowing skin. It's also one of my favorite ways to treat myself when it comes to body care. My recent favorite is from Lilly Sage Apothecary - a brand I've previously reviewed several times and have been very pleased with each time.
The Lilly Sage Apothecary Diamond Mineral Salt Exfoliant was just as impressive as their other products. The first thing I noticed about this body scrub was the scent. I could smell it as soon as I opened the box, and it was so luxurious, like a designer perfume, but all-natural just like everything is at Lilly Sage.
The second thing I noticed was the texture. It wasn't too oily nor was it too dry. It was perfectly in the middle, which can be hard to find in a body scrub.
I love a good sugar scrub, however there are numerous skin benefits of using a salt scrub in particular which make it the perfect exfoliant. The Himalayan salt and mineral salt in this Diamond Mineral Salt Exfoliant, for example, are soothing and help the skin retain water and moisture. Salt also has anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties and can help reduce excess oil, which makes a salt scrub great for combating acne on the body.
In addition to the beneficial salts, this body scrub contains moisturizing ingredients like grape-seed oil, jojoba oil, pomegranate oil, glycerin, and vitamin E. The additional skincare benefits of pomegranate oil in particular include anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, healing and nourishing qualities. It helps to regenerate, repair, and protect the skin.
Whether you're battling dry winter skin or simply want to get that glow, I highly suggest you incorporate a good salt scrub. This all-natural scrub from Lilly Sage Apothecary is so fragrant and luxurious, it's perfect for gift-giving. Pair it with their beautiful Signature Blend Body Oil for an extra-special bath and body gift!
