Let’s face it most of us do not have the luxury of hitting the spa every week or even every month, so why not bring the spa to your home? I purchased the Carrot + Sesame Body Buff Super Hydrating Spa System. This “system” basically consists of two items, a carrot and sesame body scrub with honey and a container of finishing foam. The sea salt scrub is really nice, it has a variety of oils, honey, and these unidentified specs that are suspended in the scrub. I like the way it goes on smooth yet the salt grains allow you to really get a good scrub going on. The grains are not too harsh so you can not do any real skin damage. I even enjoyed the scent of the scrub which is a bonus.
Now onto the foam-disappointing to say the least. You are asked to apply the foam to your slightly damp body. For starters when I leave the shower I like to dry off completely, I don’t want my skin to be damp, but for the sake of testing this product I played along. Initially the finishing foam left my body with a nice scent but that didn’t not last too long maybe 15 minutes at best. The foam was also leaving a white hue on my arm until I really rubbed it into my skin thoroughly then it disappeared. The bottle mentions that you will be left with a glow after using the finishing foam and they are correct you will indeed glow. However I felt like Sho'nuff from the movie the Last Dragon, as the glow vanished from my body while I made the short journey from my bathroom to the bedroom.
I like the idea of an at home spa but this product has only two items so it can hardly be called a “spa system”. In addition, of the two products that comprise the "system" I can certainly do without the foam. In the future if I am able to do so, I will purchase the scrub outside of the kit.
The kit is sold for $48.
Pamper yourself and set aside at least one day a week and make it your spa day!
Have you ever used a great at home spa kit?
