*Milk; Ren Guerande Salt Exfoliating Body Balm (review)

Product description: A gently exfoliating body balm which removes dead cells and will leave your skin moisturised, renewed and glowing.

How to use: Massage onto dry skin before bathing or showering. Rinse off.
Summer has fiiiinaly arrived here in Holland so in order to make my pasty white skin ready for the sun I bought this Ren 'Guerande Salt Exfoliating Body Balm'.

The product

I never had much luck with the previous body scrubs that I tried. Both of them were oil based salt or sugar srubs and always left me feeling extremely oily and sticky whereas this one rinses completely clean in the shower. No slippery bathroom floor and no sticky legs! The balm gives the salt granules a bit of slip whilst making the skin soft and supple.

As you can see the balm is really thick but not too greasy. I also enjoy the subtle peppermint scent. I don't like heavily scented body products because you apply it on such a large area so it can easily be a bit too overwhelming.

Unlike most salt scrubs, the Ren 'Guerande Salt Exfoliating Body Balm' has very fine granules. The granules in oil based scrubs usually melt because of the oil, but these don't so you can really get a good exfoliation.

The verdict

The reason why I really adore this scrub is because it has helped to smooth out the bumps on my upper arms and legs without leaving my skin feeling dry or irritated. Although I don't use any self-tanner I can imagine that this would be great to use beforehand because it effectively gets rid of any dead skin and creates a great base for the self-tanner to adhere to.
