My skin has been at its absolute driest lately, which calls for mega doses of exfoliation and lotion. The lotion part, I have no problem with. Exfoliation, though, is another story – slathering my body in oily, coarse salt scrubs in the shower is so unappealing. I also usually spill half the container of scrub in the shower, making the floor slippery and downright dangerous. Which is why I fell in love with Ahava’s luscious Butter Salt from their Pure Spa line.
Ahava’s body scrub is completely different for several reasons. It comes in a hearty tub, and the product is dry – no runny oils and slipper salts. Instead, dig your fingers into the tub and pull out a handful of solid product. Wet it lightly and begin to rub into your skin. The Butter Salt begins to melt and slide over your skin, moisturizing and exfoliating at once. The scent is soothing – Mandarin and Cedarwood – and clings lightly to the skin. By the time your scrubbing is complete, the product has evolved into a lotion consistency, sealing in moisture.
