Delon | Tea Tree Body Scrub
You’ll notice by now that I have written quite a few posts mentioning this lovely Canadian brand, Delon. I’ve been testing out their Tea Tree range which is soon to hit the market. I was sent some test packaging batches which is totally fine. This Tea Tree Body Scrub is probably one that has a few tweaks needed to the packaging, as the one I was sent had a label on it saying “Sample”. That is the reason why I did not take too many photo’s of this product. But basically its the Body Scrub in the range, there is only one type of body scrub which will be available in the Tea Tree range by Delon and this will be the product inside!
Tea Tree is a plant that was discovered in Australia many many years ago. The native aboriginals used the leaves of the plant in hot water, grounded up to create a sinus clearing cocktail that mystified the land with its magical healing powers.
To this day, tea tree is used as a natural way of healing. I really enjoy the smell of tea tree. It reminds me slightly of a clinical smell, but one that is fresh and clean. It also reminds me of eucalyptus. Which is another tree I think highly of. Especially because cute Koala bears live in these trees. So cute!!
Our body scrub helps remove impurities and excess oil without over-drying the skin. Contains Tea Tree oil, and is suitable for blemished skin. Removes dirt, leaving clearer and cleaner looking skin. Directions: Moisten skin, massage gently in circular motions, and rinse thoroughly. For use on body.
I have never really gotten into the whole body scrubbing beauty scene. I usually use the exfoliating gloves in the shower. But because I use an epilator as my preferred method of hair removal, I often find ingrown hairs especially on my legs! I thought this would be a great excuse to see if it body scrubs make a difference with these ingrown hairs.
The formula of the product is very creamy. I feel it is a very gentle body scrub. I think the purpose of it being on the gentle-side is to not irritate any problematic skin types which is what the line is focusing on. However, I have noticed less ingrown hairs on my legs! They are still quite a few in my knees but definitely a little less.
Even though I haven’t used many other body scrubs in my lifetime, I was expecting it to be more intensive exfoliation. But, going back to the product description above, this particular scrub is supposed to be gentle and effective on more inflamed skin. I think it left my skin with a silky soft finish which was lovely. There was barely any scent, which in my books is always a hit! I can be a little funny when it comes to smells in cosmetics, but as I mentioned above, I enjoy the smell of Tea Tree. It was a nice scrub for me to start out on, however, this is an area I do have to brush up on! More body scrubs for me please!!
