What I have is the 250 g pink variant which comes in a pouch. What makes this handy is it has a bottle cap opening, so you don’t need worry of any spillage when opening it. Fresh from counter, you can already feel some weight to it, which immediately tells you that you are indeed buying a 250 g item.
Facing front is tells you that it is a lightening milky salt scrub adding that it is enriched with milk protein and collagen and at the bottom it says all the benefit like having a silky soft feeling, lighter skin, and so on (which will tackle in detail later). The back of the packaging gives you further details of what was described at the front, as well as things such as how to use, ingredients, and some warnings in using it, which is typical in any cosmetic item, plus some images to where it is of best use I guess such as armpits, knees and bikini areas.
My only remark aesthetically is like any item packaged like is when all the contents starts to run out and it becomes lighter. The package itself becomes lighter and is prone to fall of your shelf even at the slightest of bumps like reaching out for your shampoo for example. A minor glitch for the packaging but what’s important is the content anyway.
To put it simple, your first expectation is you will see a salt scrub. It will wonderfully surprise you though.
I had some of it placed it my hand (not for actual usage yet) and by the look and feel alone, I know that this may do something once I apply it in my body. The packaging did a great job by the way because I was afraid that it will spill all over my hand and it didn’t.
If there is such a thing as 2 different kinds of fine granules, this salt scrub has it. Having also a yellowish color to it, each grain has this premium feel to it, again having that feeling that this was made as it was meant to do so compared to others that are just marketing talk that are overpromised. If you are reading this and can’t wait to read how it is like when using it, believe me ladies, I felt the same way.
Scrub’s in the Club
Scrubbing the Scrub
Application is easy. As indicated at the back of the packaging, apply a generous amount in your palm, gently apply it (make sure that your skin is wet and prepped of course), and leave it for three minutes before rinsing it.
What I did to test if this works is I applied it to some parts of half my body which includes the back of my wrist, my armpit, knew, and (ehem!) bikini area. I followed the instructions by the dot and even timed it to exactly three minutes.
And I saw a rainbow!
Kidding aside, I noticed that upon applying it, the salt not really dissolved because it got wet, but more like it disintegrated. Like Spider-Man fading away in Iron Man’s arms during the snap, the granules of the scrub also faded away in my arms. But what happened?
It felt like those granules got smaller and smaller and doing its job at a microscopic level. Unlike other scrubs that you feel dry skin scrapping off, it felt like my old skin just faded away. I also noticed that my skin turned a bit lighter on where I applied it, especially at the back of my wrist where I have this watch strap mark that slowly blended with the rest of my skin.
I had some small bumps on the road though. There are some girls out there who are sensitive to certain parts of their skin, and mine is the bikini area. Once I applied some there, I had a hint of this “it doesn’t feel right” kind of sensation. Not painful, irritating or itchy, but you get this impulse at first that you want to wash it off. Maybe it is just me but after a few moments the feeling was done.
Another one that I noticed is the scrub feels a bit strong on the milky side. It smells “a bit sweet” but it is like kid friendly sweet. Maybe because I’m not much of a sweet tooth so my sense is also affected? Maybe its like that because after I rinsed it off, my skin felt like I was just born.
My skin had this fresh glow, lighter compared to those that did not scrub. It also felt bouncier and tighter (not soap dry tight but younger tight), and it smells like a baby just had a bottle of milk. What I mentioned about the microscopic thing the way I see it was really like that, because it looks feels cleaner, like what was not meant to be there was now gone. All that’s left was a smooth and clean patch of skin.
It Looks and Feels Like Magic
BodyXpert’s Lightening Milky Salt Scrub is a tough item to beat. It clearly tells you immediately from the package what it does, and it delivers. There may be some glitches here in there such as the packaging and the sweet smell of the scrub, but these are minor things compared to the overall feel that you wanted to have every time you use it.
My skin feels like a baby again, and I can’t wait to use it again tomorrow and see if my skin can still look and feel better. This will surely be part of my shower regimen every single day so I highly recommend that this will be yours too.
