I use a lot of tan so for me a scrub is essential, whether it be an actual scrub, gloves or a mitt. The one I’ve been using for the past few months is this amazing Rituals Hammam Hot Scrub. It has an oily base and texture, with lots of chunky salt as the body and the most amazing aroma,of ginger and eucalyptus, a bit more masculine then what I’m used to using but sometimes change is good.
There are a few negatives. It’s very oily so it’s not the best at removing tan and its salt so it burns like a mother if you shave and then use it. So it didn’t really work for the purpose I bought it for which was to remove old tan but if I was just getting a luxurious treat for myself in those long winter months, this would be it!!!
Because of the oil it makes the skin really soft and it has warming ginger so it kinda turns into a hot oil, hence hot scrub. I tend to get very run down and sick in the winter because its Christmas period and I chose to work in retail, so ridicules working hours and tired everything happen. I was very glad to have this baby waiting for me at home. It was like a warm hug that exfoliated dead skin away and help with my flu with its eucalyptus (it’s kinda like that Vicks VapoRub)
All in all it’s amazing and every winter I will be getting this. I happened to get mine on sale in Arnotts in October I think. I got another one that I haven’t tried yet but once I have I’ll let you know how it goes.
