I have a new body scrub in my life which I have seriously been loving. Since my previous experience with the Frank Body Scrub, I was looking for something a bit more traditional and a little more luxurious. The Ren Guérande Exfoliating Body Balm is a product that I keep seeing in ‘best of beauty’ lists again and again so thought I would try it for myself. Ren is a brand that I know I can trust, everything that I have ever tried from them has been amazing and I love that their products don’t contain any nasties, such as parabens, sulphates and synthetic colorings and flavorings. It contains sea salt to exfoliate and a blend of olive, basil and peppermint oils to moisturize.
When I initially used this, I didn’t read the instructions and used it on wet skin and even though I enjoyed using it, it wasn’t as ‘scrubby’ as I would have liked. Since reading the directions, I have found out that it is best massaged onto dry skin, so I use this before I shower and it is like a different scrub. I love the the how the grains of sea salt really get to work on exfoliating the skin, it feels so invigorating and it smells very luxurious too. Once worked into the skin, I turn the shower on and continue to buff away, the balm turns milky and does a beautiful job at cleansing and moisturizing the skin. My skin is deliciously soft after I have used this and feels so smooth without leaving any oily residue behind. It really is a gorgeous product and a welcome treat for my skin.
