TEAS AND BUTTERS




The title sounds like quite the combination doesn't it?  But, Teas and Butters get along quite nicely in this AWESOME exfoliating scrub that I was thrilled to review from Valentia.com.  When I read about the promotion, what struck me was the list of key ingredients:  
  • Olive, Avocado & Kukui Butter
  • Green & White Tea
  • Aloe Vera
  • Jojoba Beads
I just adore all things oils-n-butters and figured that the addition of green and white teas (anti-inflammatory properties), aloe vera (improving skin's firmness) and jojoba beads (exfoliation w/out scratching) would produce a scrub worthy of greatness!  And, I wasn't disappointed!!  This scrub is AhMAZING!!!  

The packaging is beautiful; that's the first thing that caught my eye when it arrived.  After oohing and aaahing and reading the ingredients, I decided to open the package up and look at the contents.  At first glance, the scrub looked like a gelatinous mass of goo.  I could see the jojoba beads in there and gingerly touched the product with my finger.  (Like, what was I worried about? That it was going to eat my hand?!)  hahaha.  The product was silky soft and had a light, delicate fragrance.   I decided to be brave and try it.  I always kind of worry about exfoliation on my skin, as I am in my early 50s and my skin "just ain't what it used ta be."   :)

But, no worries.  I rubbed about a quarter-size amount on chin and nose, rinsed it off with warm water and WOW! My skin felt so clean and smooth!  I noticed only minor, temporary redness that went away within a very short time.  I smoothed on some moisturizer just in case of dryness, but I didn't really experience or notice any unusual dryness.  In fact, even after a few hours, my skin still feels dewy-soft and fresh.  

I think this product is a definite keeper!
