I am always curious when it comes to body scrubs. There really all a ton of different products out there to choose from. Some are very expensive and others are easier on the wallet.
When I opened the box and brought out this beauty I was really intrigued. The packaging is frosted so it mutes the color a bit on first inspection but once you open the lid you’ll find an beautiful shade of Aqua.
The container comes sealed with a clear plastic sheet so that the product doesn’t dry out before you have a chance to try it out. Once you remove that you are going to smell the goodness that is inside. The scent is a clean scent with a strong floral aroma and some may be turned off by this but it isn’t a scent that lingers long on the skin.
The texture of the scrub is more of a gel consistency with granules of the volcanic stones that take on the shade of the liquid base. It’s not a harsh scrub so it feels gentle on the skin. For me, the gel texture has a bit of a cooling effects on my skin. It is a bit messy in the shower if you scoop up too much a one time but washes away clean without leaving a film on your skin.
Perlier is available on hsn.com and is priced at $25.00 plus shipping and handling for 6.7 fl oz. If you are a first time customer to hsn.com you can get 15% off by signing up for their newsletter.
Overall I think that this is a luxury treat that I will continue to use until it’s gone but will probably go back to my regular exfoliate scrub when it’s gone.
I did receive this from ifabbo but all opinions are mine and I am not being compensated in any other way aside from the press sample for my review.
Review: Dermalogica Ultracalming Mist
Two years ago I stumbled onto this product after going to get my first facial at Ulta. At the time Ulta was promoting their new $20 mini-facial service. I had never had a facial before and thought that I would take advantage of the deal (this was 2 years ago).
My skin was at it’s worst. I was in the middle of a Rosacea flare and had no idea what was going on. This was a last ditch effort to get my skin under control before I had to resort going back to the doctor for the millionth time looking for relief. You can read about my Rosacea story here. When I walked in the door the Esthetician took one look at me and asked if she could spray something on my skin for relief. My face was red. Really red. I was reluctant but agreed after looking at my face in the mirror. The product she pulled out was Dermalogica Ultra Calming Face Mist. Here is what Dermalogica has to say about this product:
“A soothing, hydrating mist to calm redness and sensitivity. Use post-cleanse to lock in hydration and prime skin for treatment with UltraCalmingTM products. Lightweight mist helps create a shield against environmental assaults, and synergistically relieves and restores skin while fighting future flare-ups. Our exclusive UltraCalming Complex contains Oat and botanical actives that work below the surface to interrupt inflammatory triggers that lead to sensitization, while helping to minimize discomfort, burning and itching. Soothing Aloe helps calm while correcting the moisture level imbalance that can provoke sensitized skin. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colors.”
I can attest to the fact that this product helped save my skin and is now part of my everyday routine. Since that fateful day that I took a chance and got a facial, I have never turned back. When my skin flares I return to using all of these products to help calm it down but they are expensive so I do normally got back to others. I think we all have those products that we know we can count on but that are just too expensive to use every day.
I do have a current skin care regimen that doesn’t include all Dermalogica products but this is my can’t live with out product. I will repurchase this spray over and over again.
