Calcot manor gentle salt scrub


I have to admit, I tend to be a bit of a snob when it comes to beauty and body products. There has been a trend with most of the products i have tried, the more you pay the better the quality. Today, my view changed completely.

When Calcot manor's gentle scrub* arrived on my door stop I was really excited to try it, i was expecting it to be good but it turned out to be great. The smell is delicious, the product is infused with almond oil which supplies the delicious smell and is highly moisturising.


I apply this before i jump in the shower so i get a more gritty exfoliating experience. Usually, scrubs tend to make my skin sting when I do this but this didn't irritate my skin at all. When you wash the scrub off you're left with silky smooth, moisturised, skin.

This scrub is oil based meaning you don't need to use a moisturiser afterwards. If your skin is oily i would steer clear of this as it's designed for the normal/dry skin types. As it's oil based it can leave your shower extremely slippy so be careful when you're getting out!

The product leaves a lovely scent on the skin for a few hours and keeps the skin moisturised for over 24 hours (WOW!!). It takes a great product to replace my soap and glory scrub but this scrub may just be that special. After using this on my whole body there was still masses of the product left so i have a feeling this will last a while.

Calcot Manor's gentle salt scrub is available for £7.99, buy (here).

  20. This sounds really great! I have tried another salt scrub- can't remember the name at the moment- that I really liked. Salt scrubs do work so well for dry skin.

  29. Seems like really nice cleansing cream due to its natural ingredients and the fact that it don't have any side effect on skin . I will be purchasing the cream very soon.
