Young & Pure Revitalising Body Scrub from My Pure
I was recently sent a 100ml tube of Young & Pure Revitalising Body Scrub from My Pure, in return for an honest review.
I'm a huge fan of body scrubs as they give me that all over fresh feeling when I've used them and often leave my skin nourished and glowing. Although the name is a bit of a giveaway, this has been developed for those with way younger skin than myself. In fact, it was especially made for those under the age of 21 which I am clearly not! I did however still give it a try before handing it over to my daughters to get their verdict.
As you can see, the body scrub looks a little like moisturiser but with tiny grains of sand in it ....don't worry, it doesn't actually contain sand, that's just what it resembles!
The 'How to use' instructions say to 'Apply body scrub to wet sin and massage gently in circular motions to gently exfoliate the skin. Pay special attention to dry areas like elbows and knees. Rinse thoroughly, repeating once or twice a week to keep your skin clear and free of dry flaky skin.' I did as directed and found it quite a pleasant experience. Although I could feel the small gritty bits running over my skin, they didn't scratch or leave any redness. This product also contains Shea Butter so you're guaranteed to feel silky smooth after use. I personally struggled with the smell .....it's really difficult to describe but I definitely wasn't a fan! My daughters both agreed that the smell was something which needed addressing, but apart from that, we were very impressed with the quality of the product and knowing that it's free of parabens, sls and other harsh chemicals, means that we were confident we'd given our skin the best possible treatment whilst avoiding irritation.
Although I used this myself (at the ripe old age of 38), I could tell that it was made with younger skin in mind. I still had a lovely glow, but it didn't feel quite harsh enough for my more mature skin. My daughters are 17 and 19 and they both found it to work fantastically. They both were left with smooth legs and my youngest, who suffers sensitive skin, had no problems with it at all. She found it to be quite gentle and loved the moisturising effect.
Overall I would recommend this for the age it is intended as it really does do what it says!
Young & Pure Revitalising Body Scrub is available to buy from My Pure and comes in a 100ml tube costing £5.39 (price correct at time of post).
