The Body Shop Spa of the World DEAD SEA SALT Scrub
Spa of the World is the most loved range from The Body Shop. I am appreciating the products more because I get a great 'me-time' at the end of every day. I shared about the scrub from the relaxing ritual. Today, I wanted to share about the scrub from the revitalizing ritual - The Body Shop Spa of the World Dead Sea Salt Scrub.
Price: Rs 2,495 for 350ml (priced more than the Africa Ximenia scrub.
Packaging: Huge plastic tub with screw-in lid.
Fragrance: Comforting spa-like with some hint of lime or lemongrass
Texture: Coarse salt granules in cream base
How I Use and Efficacy: The coarse granules melt into the buttery cream texture. It gives medium exfoliation when used on wet skin. Better to wet your fingers and then use it for more exfoliation instead of applying it on wet skin. Only a little amount is required. When washed with just water, it leaves behind a buttery residue which when dries up, feels sticky. So, I prefer to wash it off with a soap. Interestingly, no soap or shower gel in the Spa of the World range. The scrub contains coarse salt granules which might be too abrasive for sensitive skin. I will not recommend it to be used near for broken or damaged skin.The oils in the scrub start to separate so, use it from the top instead of scooping out the scrub from the side.

Overall: I have never tried a scrub with coarse dead sea salt. Dead sea salt is known for its high mineral content. I was excited to try something with abrasive granules which melts while using. I like the scrub and its effects. But, if I have to choose one scrub from the Spa of the World range then my pick will be Africa Ximenia scrub.
Have you tried anything from the Spa of the World range? Or any dead sea salt scrub? Do let me know in comment.
