Body scrubs are one of those miscellaneous beauty products that I don’t pay much attention to. I am relatively happy with my large tub of Paul & Joe’s salt scrub and still have quite a bit left. Truth be told, I just don’t use body scrubs much and it all boils down to my laziness of incorporating an additional step during shower time.
So, when Human Nature or Human “Heart” Nature Luxury Body Scrub appeared on my doorstep a few months ago, I admit it was rather neglected from the rest of the products I received. But I started using it a couple of weeks ago and boy, am I in love with this scrubby now.
The Human Nature body scrub comes in a bog standard plastic tub. The scrub itself is in a white creamy, buttery form with little exfoliating grits. I came to find out later that the bits were brown rice beads. The scrub is lemongrass scented and this is one of the main reasons why I like it so much. I must warn you that the scent is quite prominent but it doesn’t linger much and fades pretty quickly after washing off. I do find it to be very uplifting during a shower though. If you’re not a fan of herbal or lemongrass aromatics, you probably will not like this scrub much.
The creamy scrub spreads very smoothly on wet or damp skin. I have read a few people complaining that there’s not enough grit but to me, I think it’s quite enough. My skin is pretty sensitive and I can’t over-scrub it or get too abrasive. So in terms of grit and cream, I do think it’s a nice balance.
Another reason why I like this body scrub is that it washes off easily. There are scrubs that tend to be really heavy or laden with oils and they leave a rather slimy, unclean feeling behind. With this scrub, my skin is left feeling smooth especially on my arms and I find that body lotions or creams used after will absorb better.
In summary, this product pretty much rocks my boat and after using it twice weekly the last couple of weeks, my skin is looking smoother and feels softer. A 100g tub will probably last 2 to 3 months with regular weekly use. The price tag of RM24.90 is pretty easy on the wallet too.
