Texture & Scent:


This scrub is like your usual foaming scrub, but it has lots of scrubby bits in it (more so than the usual ones!)! The apricot seed powders are just alright for me, but it may be a little harsh for those of you who prefer a gentler scrub! The scent smells like a mellowed down version of the CK be perfume from Calvin Klein, which is amazing!! :D

Packaging:


This scrub comes in a squeeze tube with a flip top cap.

The flip top cap:



The size of the dispensing hole is just nice to squeeze out the amount you like!!

The new packaging:



Price & Availability:
This scrub is priced at 140 Baht (approx. RM14.58 / US$4.05), and is available at all Boots outlets in Thailand.

Usage:
I use this as a body scrub! Methinks that this is great to use prior to shaving too! :)


My $0.02:

I got suckered into buying this when i saw the Buy 1 Free 1 sale at Boots when i was in Bangkok! This was already on sale at 100 Baht (approx. RM10.42 / US$2.89) only, but to get another one free at that price is really a steal! :D

I didn't place much hope in this product because in my narrow mind, house brands usually suck! But this one really surprised me!

It's really scrubby despite being a foaming scrub (unlike some *koff TBS ones koffffff*), which is great for me because i prefer my scrubs that way!! Also, i like that it exfoliates well but doesn't dry out the skin! And finally, the scent is really nice - like i mentioned above, it smells like the mellowed down version of the old CK be perfume by Calvin Klein!! hehehe!! :D

I regret not buying more of this one when i was there!! But rest assured that i definitely will the next time i'm there! :D

  5. We don't have boots here because certain other drugstores have sort of closed the market against them... that's the rumour I've heard anyway =(

    And yes Boots house brands ROCK. Wish Tesco would import them. *hints at tesco* ;)
