REVIEW -- Perlier Volcanic Thermo Renewing Scrub

Press Sample(s) | #PerlierOnHSN

Hey everyone! Today I have a review of Perlier's Volcanic Thermo Renewing Scrub, which can be found on HSN!

Containing volcanic rocks, micronutrients, and natural minerals, the scrub is a true beauty spa treatment for your body. It contains larger mineral particles that work with the thermal water to regenerate skin, while the finer powders smooth, remove dead cells, and leave skin feeling super soft.

Upon first glance, the scrub looks gelatinous and like it has very fine particles, so I was a little concerned that it wouldn't be great at exfoliation.. but I am pleasantly surprised to say that I was wrong! The gel base quickly disappears when you rub the scrub in, leaving behind decently sized salt crystals to get your skin smooth.

I use the Perlier Volcanic Thermo Renewing Scrub on my legs before shaving, but I don't think I would use it on the rest of my body. The salt crystals are fairly rough on my skin and I don't think I'd particularly enjoy that on softer, more sensitive areas of my body (like my torso, for instance). This is definitely a "legs only" scrub for me, and not something I would use if I were looking to exfoliate before self-tanning.

Since the gel base is so thin, I also find that it takes a pretty good size handful of product to adequately scrub my legs. At $25 a tub, I wouldn't be thrilled to be scooping handfuls of scrub out every time I want to use it.

However, I will say that it does smell absolutely AMAZING. The first day I got it, I just kept it open next to me so that I could smell it's perfumey awesomeness. Is that smell worth $25? Not to me.

All in all, I think the Perlier Volcanic Thermo Renewing Scrub has some good qualities, but it's a "meh" product for me. I don't dislike it, but it hasn't done much to wow me besides smell divine.. and I don't need to pay $25 to get a good smelling scrub.
RATING: 2.5 out of 5 STARS
