Victoria's Secret Stimulating Body Scrub. Blah.

I purchased the Victoria's Secret Stimulating Body Scrub in the scent Love Spell a long time ago in one of La Senza's 5 for $25 deals. They run this "promotion" year-round and it's actually pretty awesome, cause you can pick and choose any five of their body products for the very reasonable price of $25. They have body scrub, fragrance, body lotion, body wash and body butter to choose from in a variety of delicious scents.

Anyway, on with the Stimulating Body Scrub Review..... it sucks. I tried using it about three times and then banished it from my shower forever. The main ingredient is sugar, so it dissolves so fast that you barely get any use out of it. I'm not really sure what is "stimulating" about it... The only good quality is the scent, but you can just buy that separately, as VS sells each fragrance as an eau de toilette.

The other thing I didn't like about it was the consistency. It was kind of gelly and seemed like all it would do is clog up your pores instead of clean them.

As a side note, my favourite body exfoliant is actually a no-name brand from Shoppers Drug Mart. The Life Brand Apricot and Jojoba Face and Body Exfoliant is by far the best I've found. I wouldn't recommend using it on your face because it would be a little too harsh for the delicate skin, but it's great for elbows, knees and feet. It makes your skin incredibly soft and smooth. You can get a 400 ml jar for around $10.

  1. Hi! I'm so excited to have found another blogger from Edmonton! Great blog : ) Too bad the Victoria's Secret body scrub sucks, I've been looking for a good exfoliator. I will have to try the Life brand you recommended.
