Smells Like An Ocean Breeze, Works With Salt From The Dead Sea - #Adovia Body Scrub

Press Sample.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

Our skin has the natural ability to replenish itself.  According to WebMD, it is renewed every 27 days! Sometimes, our skin needs a little help with that turnover, moving the dead cells out of the way so that fresh new skin can show through.  One of my favorite ways to help the process along is with a gentle body scrub that also adds something back to my skin, like this one from Adovia that is rich with oils and made with mineral-rich Dead Sea salt.

I used to think that in order for a scrub to work, you had to FEEL it.  Like, actually scrubbing off your skin.  Turns out, those kinds of scrubs may do more harm than good, opening the skin up to infection, and removing too much of the skin and its natural oils. Better scrubs are made with salt, sugar, or other exfoliants that don't have jagged edges, and melt down as they are being used, for a gentle, but still effective, exfoliation.

Adovia Dead Sea Salt Scrub directions and ingredients

Adovia Dead Sea Salt Scrub is a cruelty-free scrub, full of skin-loving ingredients like aloe, apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, and sweet almond oil, and soothing chamomile and algae extracts.  The exfoliation comes from Sea Salt and Dead Sea Salt, which are gentle, melting exfoliants.

You can see that this scrub is essentially layered - the salt layer is on the bottom, and the oils are on the top.  Even mixing with a spatula, I wasn't able to keep them mixed for very long, so I found it worked best to scoop from the bottom.  The oils work really well to protect my skin and keep in moisture, but they also make my shower stall really slippery! So, use a bath mat and step carefully.  It's also very fragrant with the Ocean Breeze scent, so if you're sensitive to scent, you may want to skip this particular version.  It does linger for a while, but I kinda liked it, so it wasn't an issue for me.

I think this would work really well in a foot or hand soak, or especially in a tub, where the oils could also perfume the bath.  In the shower, I usually turn off the water and then apply the scrub, rubbing in circular motions, which not only exfoliates, but also can help with circulation.  I leave the scrub on for a few minutes before rinsing.  I love how soft my skin is after using a body scrub, and I'll use this before shaving if I want a really close, smooth shave on my legs.
mani inspired by Adovia Dead Sea Salt Scrub
My mani is inspired by the dual layer of the scrub, and the logo!  I used the watery, sheer jelly Wet 'n Wild Gyp-Sea Green at the top, and Slick Lacquer Turn the Beat Around, a beautiful blue holo, at the tip.  My white striper was used to make the logo, separating the two. 

If you like exfoliating salt scrubs that are layered with moisturizing oils, and made with rich Dead Sea Salt, scented like the ocean, and never tested on animals, you may like this scrub.  If you aren't happy with it, they offer a 1-year, 100% money-back guarantee - no questions asked.

For more information, or to purchase, you can find Adovia on their website, Cleopatra's Choice, and on Amazon, where this scrub is currently on sale for $15.95.
