REN Guerande Salt Exfoliating Body Balm £20 from lookfantastic
I am a bit of a body scrub junkie as I am trying out all sorts of scrubs non-repeating-ly. By far, I've only used those by soap & glory and bodyshop. To be honest, I quite like them all. However, I want to test out other brands as well. This time, I chose to experiment the REN Guerande Salt Exfoliating Body Balm. Although it is said as a body balm, it is a scrub. REN is very famous for their skincare range but there seems not many people talking about their body care range. As much as I wanted to do a little research before I purchased this, I couldn't. Yet, it is just £20, I was like whatever. I do think this is an economic choice because the bottle contains 330 ml inside. Quite fair as we are talking about REN.
As you can see, the texture is a huge difference to the other body scrubs (at least to those I've used.). It is extremely smooth and the salt particulates are very small which made this scrub very gentle. It is definitely okay for everyday usage. Besides, the salt particulates dissolved and sunk in to the skin a little bit when you use it during shower. Therefore, unlike many others, this "body balm" moisturizes and exfoliates your body at the same time. For that reason, you may/may not need to apply body lotion/butter/etc. after shower. A bonus for me is that it smells like peppermint which I'm quite cray cray about. Overall, I love this exfoliating body balm by REN.
