Price
The Mandara Spa Island Paradise Intensive Body Scrub retails at £10.50 for 350ml of product and is available from the Time To Spa website.
Packaging
The scrub comes in a big plastic tub that has a lovely little pattern on it. It does a great job at keeping the product secure and contains clear directions.
My Thoughts
This scrub does a fairly decent job at helping along with the removal of dead skin cells. It can be a bit abrasive and is therefore able to exfoliate tougher areas such as the knees and elbows, this is probably due to the olive stone, peach stone granules and coconut shell powder that the scrub contains which are all known for their exfoliating properties. As for the scent, it’s lovely. You can definitely smell the lemon that it contains with a slight hint of grapefruit and patchouli. I will say this scrub can leave a sort of powdery residue on surfaces if not rinsed properly which can be a little difficult to clean once dried on, so make sure you  thoroughly rinse your bath/shower.
Pros
  • Reasonably priced
  • Secure and clear packaging
  • Smells lovely
  • Gently yet effectively helps desquamation
  • Free from SLES, SLS, parabens, mineral oils, animal ingredients (except honey, beeswax and milk)

 

Cons
  • Can leave a powdery residue on surfaces if not rinsed properly
  • Can be a bit abrasive

 

Overall
This is a good scrub for those rough areas. I like that it is free from nasty ingredients and the lovely scent but I don’t love the powdery residue it leaves behind. Having said that, it’s reasonably priced and does a decent job at removing dead skin cells.
Have you tried any Mandara Spa products?
