Created by Champneys’ very own spa experts and Boots’ skincare experts Champneys Spa products are designed to bring a little luxury to your home and allow you to indulge. The Spa Treatments collection is also used by professional therapists at Champneys’ prestigious spas. I tried the exfoliator from the Spa Indulgence Mediterranean Bliss Body Glow range and hoped that its scent would give me a taste of summer.
The exfoliator from the Mediterranean Bliss Body Glow takes its influence from the sunkissed Spanish hills containing ingredients such as olive leaf, fig milk, green tomato and coconut oil.
I love a good body scrub so I was particularly excited to try the Mediterranean Bliss Body Glow. It is a rich-smelling exfoliator scrub containing sugar, olive oil, fig milk, coconut oil and Shea butter. This scrub exfoliates whilst leaving skin well-moisturised. Recommended for damp skin, I found this product worked better, the wetter my skin was. It does take a little effort to work the scrub into the skin but it does leave it feeling soft, glowing and silky smooth. For those who like a gritty body scrub to polish away dead skin cells, this could be the product for you. I would not recommend this to those with sensitive skin as the texture may be too harsh for delicate skin types. The scrub is quite strong smelling, with a rich perfumed scent, and although fairly summery, I found this product’s aroma, a little ‘old-fashioned’. I would recommend this scrub as a good pre-beach essential, to preen and prepare skin whilst leaving a luminous glow. My skin looked radiant afterwards and the texture and appearance was much smoother.
Price and Packaging
The green and gold packaging is truly luxurious and looks great in the bathroom. At £12.00 for 200g, this product is a tad on the expensive side
considering that for a full body application you need approximately one
quarter of the pot. The Champneys Spa Idulgence range is available from Boots and Champneys’ spas.
