I love exfoliating. Something about scrubbing away all of those dead skin cells that makes me feel pretty productive. As a lot of you already know, I am also in love with the aroma of coconuts, it just makes me feel good about life. So it probably won’t come as a surprise that passing up a scrub with any hint of coconut in it is virtually impossible for me. This uncontrollable tendency to consume any and all coconut scented scrubs has at times left me with dry, flaky, irritated skin…due to scrubs that were so harsh and aggressive that the only thingÂ pleasant about them was the aroma of coconut. But I still find it difficult to not at least give a new coconut scented scrub a try, especially when that scrub not only smells like coconuts but is also natural, paraben free and contains sea salts and coconut shell. I am of course referring to the new Kanshi Salted Coconut Body Scrub.
The Salted Coconut Scrub of course smells like coconuts but not overwhelmingly so. The scent is more naturally coconut, not at all manufactured. The scrub does a great job of exfoliating without feeling scratchy or irritating my skin. The first time I used it, I applied it in the shower after my skin was already wet and to me it felt a bit slimy. However, the second time I used it I rubbed it onto my skin before getting my skin wet and it worked a lot better for me, my skin was soft, smooth, moisturized and smelled great. The slimy feeling that I experienced the first time was the natural oils in the scrub…which actually left my skin feeling a bit moisturized even after I rinsed it with warm water. Now I can’t promise that I won’t try other coconut scented scrubs out there but I can promise that I am definitely keeping this one as a constant in my beauty drawer. Have you tried it?
