Hey guys, this is Nahema, the new intern with R&R Luxury, and I wanted to share a little jewel with you. But before I reveal it, let me give you a little background.
You see, I have always been a sucker for body scrubs ever since reading an article in Essence Magazine some years ago, talking about the importance of exfoliating so your skin could glow. After reading that article, I used every scrub you could imagine. From high-end to lower-priced brands, they were all in my bathroom. It got to the point where I had to give some away because it became overwhelming. Yikes!
When I ran across R&R Luxury some years ago, I saw that they had body scrubs, but I was a little on the apprehensive side. Since I have tried just about every scrub known to man, I asked myself, "what would make this one so different?" To my friends, I am "the product plug," so I decided to give it a shot. I figured if the scrub did not work for me, I would gift it to a friend or introduce it to someone else.
I decided to get the lavender-scented shea butter sugar scrub because I love all things that help me relax, and since the summer started, I’ve been a grand meal for mosquitos, so I needed something to keep them away. Lavender is well known for helping with anxiety, insomnia, and wellness. Mosquitos hate the smell of lavender, so I no longer wanted any parts of the mosquito menu.
Once the scrub arrived at my home, I immediately loved the thick texture. I knew it would not leave a mess in my tub or bathroom. This scrub is a little different from the ones I have tried before because before I get into the shower, I added a small amount to my hands and massaged it to my dry skin. I then allow it to sit for about 5 – 10 mins, which gives me time to set my water to the right temperature and get one of my Spotify playlists started.
Let me tell you something… when I got in the shower I felt the sugar from the scrub melt from my skin. It was amazing! I then completed my shower with my Liquid Black Soap (we'll get into that gem another time). Once I got out of the shower, my skin was SMOOTH. You see, the sugar scrub includes the power of raw shea butter, which moisturises the skin. I didn't even need to add any further moisture. What a miracle for me because I've dealt with some scrubs that left my skin dry and ashy. However, this shea scrub right here just changed the game.
It's been a month since I've started using this scrub, and I can say that my skin hasn't looked this good in a very long time. Even the scars I received from scratching my mosquito bites have started to fade. I can honestly say I highly doubt I will be using any other scrub outside of R&R Luxury Shea Sugar Scrub.
Whether you prefer lemongrass over lavender, your body will have the same great results, and you won't be sorry!
