Bliss Hot Salt Scrub with Rosemary & Eucalyptus – where were you when I had the flu?
I’ve had some bad luck with colds and flu in the last 4 months and I’m currently nursing another episode of what feels like the plague. When I had the flu in January I felt like I was hit by a bus backwards and forwards, my muscles ached and no matter how times I showered I just didn’t feel clean. I really wish I would have had this Bliss Hot Salt Scrub with me at the time because it makes such a difference to my well-being.
It’s so thick you can stand a scrub spatula in it!
You can use this on dry or wet skin depending on how much friction you are after but it is recommended that you use it on dry skin to get the best results. Because the scrub is suspended in a thick gel it’s easy to work around the body, and it holds its shape as you apply it – so there isn’t a runny mess. The sea salt will melt when it gets wet so this rinses very clean and you don’t have to worry about scrubby bits that end up clinging in the strangest places (if you know what I mean).
When you first open the lid you are hit with slightly medicinal, yet reassuring scent of the Eucalyptus and Rosemary. I think the Eucalyptus essential oil is pivotal in making this scrub work because it has an amazing antiseptic and sanitising effect on the skin. Since I’ve been ill I’ve been working this this into my chest and neck area and with the steam from the shower it feels like a treatment that should be available on the NHS. It really has helped to clear my head and chest plus the warming sensation of the salts gives this a real comfort factor. After using this my skin feels so clean, smooth and free of germs. I’ve not used body lotion afterwards as I feel like I don’t need it but in the winter I probably would just to keep the comfort feeling going.
This would also be great for anyone who does sport or goes to the gym. Jamie used this a few times after his workouts and he said it felt really soothing on his legs and arms after lifting weights. My only moan and sorry to sound repetitive is this has the dreaded foil lid. Because this has a gel like texture, Bliss probably think it would slosh around while being transported so I will let it go. This is available at Feelunique for £28.60 including delivery.
