How it feels/smells/looks

The product has an enigmatic, crunchy consistency with an aroma that carries you out of your bathroom and to the seaside. The scrub warms and emulsifies once in contact with water, and is easily applied to any problem areas you may have. For best results, I let it sit for a few minutes before washing off with warm water. The stimulating citrus and sea breeze scent lingers long after the scrub has washed away, turning shower time into a seascape adventure.

Why I like it

This luxury product is a far less abrasive means of exfoliating than traditional scrubs, leaving the skin fresh and invigorated. I especially loved the tingly sensation of the sea salt against my skin combined with the moisturising argan seed oil and shea butter. You can’t help but feel a little bit fancy when you have a volcanic ash-based product in your bathroom.

Areas for improvement

I used the product religiously for a week and found a definite improvement in my skin. I was at first a bit apprehensive that the volcanic ash may add a somewhat gimmicky component to the product. However, it did exactly what it said it would, leaving my problem areas (hands, legs and elbows) noticeably smoother. In saying that, post-scrub my skin still felt some residue from the product, which may have been due to the oil.

Final comments

I recommend this product to anyone looking for something a little bit extra to add to his or her skincare routine. If you’re in the market for a 100 per cent vegan, Australian-made exfoliate, this one’s a must.
