SPA CEYLON – PEACE BODY SCRUB
SPA CEYLON is a new brand on our market, for now with the only branch in Split, where I recently bought it in a shopping center. SPA CEYLON is headquartered in Sri Lanka, and you can find their outlets around the world. Its ingredients and formulations and the production process, as well as the whole concept, are based on Ayurveda.
Ayurveda is a system of traditional medicine that originated in India, and whose principles are based solely on the use of natural ingredients. For Westerners, Ayurveda is one of the forms of alternative medicine.
PEACE BODY SCRUB does not contain parabens or alcohol, nor other SPA CEYLON products, and is intended for normal to dry skin. These products are vegetarian, have not been tested on animals, and contain community fair trade ingredients, ie ingredients obtained from ecologically sustainable production (sustainable harvesting).
The natural aromatic and creamy Ayurvedic formula is enriched with herbs and minerals. Neem (Ceylon margosa) and walnut cleanse the skin, clean pores, remove toxins and dead skin cells. Lime regenerates skin cells and brightens it. The combination of virgin coconut, olive, sunflower and soybean oils and honey hydrates, softens and soothes the skin, improving its overall condition. Organic lemongrass refreshes and soothes the senses, acting to achieve inner peace. Medicinal lavender gently relaxes, and broad-leaved lavender restores peace and balance.
It has a creamy texture with tiny walnut shell particles, which very gently exfoliate the skin of the body. The smell of the peeling is pleasant and refreshing. The skin is soft after rinsing, and it is recommended to use it 2 to 3 times a week. Contains artificial fragrance and preservatives.
It is applied to the whole body before showering, left for 2 minutes and then exfoliated in 3 circular motions and rinsed off. It is stated that milk was used, but I still used water.

CAUDALIE CABERNET SCRUB
Caudalie is my old love and one of my favorite brands. I will definitely write more about their products here.
Cabernet Scrub contains 99% of ingredients of plant origin, and according to the manufacturer, it is intended for those who want smooth and nourished skin. It consists of ground grape seeds, brown sugar, honey and 6 organic essential oils, which drain and have an anti-cellulite effect. The label is marked on the package:
0% parabens, phenoxyethanol, phthalates, mineral oils, sulfates.
It is recommended to use it 2 times a week by heating a small amount of peeling between the hands, and then massaging it into the moist skin in circular motions, starting from the feet upwards.
The advantage of this product is that in addition to exfoliation, it also has an anti-cellulite effect on drainage.
It has a thick texture, makes a stronger exfoliation than the previous two, and the skin is soft, nourished and taut after rinsing.
