If you've been neglecting your skin over the winter months and need an effective scrub with which to slough off those dulling dead skin cells then today's review will have come at just the right time.
Cowshed Spearmint Exfoliating Sea Salt Scrub is a luxury body exfoliator which contains sea salt crystals suspended in nourishing macadamia oil to leave skin buffed to perfection, along with seaweed & honey to nourish and energising spearmint essential oil.
On first impressions, I found the packaging to be aesthetically pleasing. A generously sized tub is presented inside of an outer cardboard box which features the same mint green colour & design. the clear directions are printed on both the outer box & the tub. Regular readers will know that I dislike tub packaging, finding it to be both messy & unhygienic to use, but it's difficult to see how else Cowshed could present this scrub.
Cowshed Spearmint Exfoliating Sea Salt Scrub has a dense texture which I found made it rather difficult to scoop out with my hands. It would be helpful if Cowshed included a scoop with the scrub, particularly because this attention to detail would reiterate the luxury branding. The scrub is made up of a high concentration of finely milled exfoliating sea salt granules suspended in oil. It makes for a gentle yet thorough exfoliation. The subtle spearmint scent is pleasant but not overpowering & I didn't notice it lingering on skin following use.
Immediately after use (when still in the shower), I noticed an oily residue left on skin. However, following use, there was no oily residue but my skin was simply left feeling soft, smooth and nourished, with no need to moisturise.
At £40 for 350ml, Cowshed Spearmint Exfoliating Sea Salt Scrub is undeniably expensive and it would be difficult for me to justify a repurchase because I tend to skimp on body care and spend more on facial skin care. That said, it is both a pleasure to use & an effective scrub which I'd recommend if you're looking to make a luxury purchase or give an indulgent gift.
