Review: Original Source Cranberry & Honey Daily Scrub. Analyze the ingredients
Our skin is able to self-renew. Skin cells work, reproduce and divide thus they regenerated. But dead skin cells do not remove without our assistance through the using of a scrub.
Also, if we regularly apply self-tanning on our body, first, we should clean our skin with scrub. So, it help to get a good tan. Before epilation also need to carry out the skin exfoliation. It will prevent ingrown hairs.
I want to tell you about the «appetizing» (only in appearance) scrub with cranberry and honey ”Original Source Cranberry & Honey Daily Scrub” for daily application. It contains 425 crushed cranberry seeds and honey. It sounds very «delicious».
The consistency of sufficiently liquid. Easily flows from the packing.
There are very few exfoliating particles inside, because it is for «daily application», I suppose.
The scrub has wonderful smell and it is very pleasant to use it and enjoy. When you apply scrub, it foams much and you can use it instead the shower gel. Gently exfoliates and does not scratch the skin.
It is the best choice for those who like exfoliation more than once a week.
