Want to know the last time I went to a spa? I think it was about 3 years ago to get a massage and you know what, that is about 3 years too long for me! Unfortunately, time and budget restraints often prevent me from going out and pampering myself on a regular basis. I frequently do things like color & cut my own hair as well as indulge in bath & body products to get me by. Thankfully, Shannon (the owner of A Girl’s Gotta Spa!) understands a woman’s need and desire to be pampered and has created a wonderful line of bath and body products to help us get the job done at home. Being a certified body scrub addict, I was thrilled to receive the Energizing Citrus Salt Scrub to test out.
This gritty salt scrub is made with pure Mediterranean and Israeli Dead Sea Salts that naturally purify & detox skin while they exfoliate. Upon opening this scrub, I first noticed the intoxicating scent. It has a very unique earthy/citrus scent with strong hints of lime and salt… which makes me think it would go perfect with a margarita! Seriously, If I close my eyes it gives me the feeling of being on a tropical island whenever I use it. Now, this scrub is fairly rough but that is exactly how I like my scrubs, although I don’t think it would be suitable for those with extremely sensitive skin. If you want it to feel slightly less abrasive, make sure your body is nice and wet first. I also love that it’s loaded with Avocado & Sweet Almond Oils so it leaves me feeling incredibly smooth and moisturized after I get out. I honestly don’t even need a moisturizer, my skin just glows! A few things to remember: This is a salt scrub, so if you have any open wounds or cuts this will sting if it gets in them. Also, it leaves the shower floor slightly slippery so rinse it well and take caution getting out.
The A Girl’s Gotta Spa Energizing Citrus Salt Scrub is definitely a new favorite of mine! I have also been using it to exfoliate my feet and I must say, they are softer and smoother than they’ve been in a long time. I’m ready for sandal weather, now I just need to get in shape for the bathing suit part haha! I should also note that the entire line of A Girl’s Gotta Spa! products are certified cruelty free and vegan, which is always a wonderful thing.
What kinds of things do you do to pamper yourself at home?
