Darphin Perfecting Body Scrub – Review

29 Apr

darphin-exfoliating-body-scrub

 

Last week, a confusing thing happened. I was looking out of the window in the morning, and there was sun. People were walking to work without coats. I couldn’t see one puddle. I turned to my flatmate in bafflement, because I’d actually forgotten what to wear in such circumstances. Do you need a jacket in 19 degree temperatures? Can you get your legs out?

In the end I did both, feeling incredibly adventurous by bearing at last 4 INCHES of leg above my ankle for the trip to work. Unfortunately the legs in question were pasty and dull, after a winter in which they only times they’d been revealed were during marathon training sessions (needless to say, I didn’t even bother shaving them for those outings). Undoubtedly, it was time for operation summer skin had to commence.

I’ve been sent loads of fake tans recently so I’ll be reviewing those one by one, but first of all let’s look at one of the items I’ve been using to prepare myself for all that tanning – Darphin’s new Perfecting Body Scrub.

One thing I love about this product is that it’s much more gentle than some of the scrubs I’ve tried previously – the apricot seed flakes are big enough to exfoliate effectively, but not so big as to irritate the skin. It also washes off very easily, so you don’t get out of the shower only to find you’re still covered in little granules.

The smell and texture are very luxurious – as you would expect of a product of this price – although if you’re the type of person you likes a really foamy, lathery body wash you might be disappointed. Another sticking point is the packaging – maybe I’m being stupid but the cap on the bottle is really hard to open, especially if you have slippery wet hands in the shower!

Overall though I’d definitely recommend this product. It leaves skin feeling refreshed and radiant, ready for the next steps of your summer-goddess prep (to be continued…)

    I went to London last weekend and thought of you and the marathon 🙂 And I know what you mean, it’s sunny right now! BBC says it will be 19 degrees C today, mmm! I guess they were right, but I still don’t know what to wear – a coat may be too much, just a denim jacket maybe leaves you feeling cold at the end of the day…
    This body scrub seems good and no, you weren’t stupid with the lid, I have the same problem! I used to have waxing, leaves legs so soft… now I’m shaving and I always end up cutting myself! 🙂
