My product reviews until now have dealt with products you can consume, but healthy habits are for both inside and out, so today I will be reviewing a beauty care product: Bogavia Nourishing Sugar Scrub. I absolutely love this product. And, I only review products I truly like. First, what is a sugar scrub? Sugar scrubs are exfoliating treatments that help to soften the skin and restore a healthy glow. The granulated particles of sugar in the sugar body scrub serve as tiny scrubbing beads that slough off dead surface skin cells and smooth over rough patches of skin. The sugar scrub must be applied to dry skin in a gentle, circular motion in order for the exfoliating action of the beads to work properly, removing as much of the dead skin cells as possible while unclogging skin pores. The sugar beads glide over the dried patches of skin, removing them to reveal the soft skin underneath. A sugar body scrub rejuvenates the skin and can be used on any part of the body.
Bogavia’s nourishing sugar scrub has all natural and organic ingredients. It contains: Organic Sucrose, Organic Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile) Flower Extract, Organic Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Extract, Organic Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Aroma (Organic and Wildcrafted Aroma Blend), Tocopherol (Vitamin E) Natural. Bogavia’s website has the following about their sugar scrub: “Gentle and moisturizing, this organic sugar blend works to improve the total quality of your skin. Each use refines skin texture, promotes a radiant glow and delicately scents your body with the Valencia Vanilla natural and organic essential oil blend.” (www.bogavia.com).
I use this sugar scrub in the shower. First, the smell is amazing: Valencia Vanilla. It is a sweet, warm scent that wakes you up and leaves you calm. The sugar is sweet and exfoliates. You can feel it working. And, the scrub comes in a tube, rather than a container where you risk getting water in it. After the shower and scrub, I moisturize with a hydration body lotion. The smell of Valencia vanilla lingers in a pleasant way. Its not to strong, but enough to get that fresh out of the shower feeling for a few more hours. The scrub leaves me feeling moisturized. I definitely recommend this product. The website lists local retailers, and you can also order it off the website.
