Review: Grown Alchemist Body Scrub
Today I’m going to tell you all about the GROWN ALCHEMIST - Purifying Body Exfoliant - Pearl, Peppermint & Ylang Ylang Grown Alchemist is an Australian based brand focused on making natural, nontoxic products. The self-describe as a “beauty company of the future” and place a heavy focus on scientific formulas that prevent and reverse aging. Their products smell great, are gentle, and just feel like an indulgence to use! From the GA website, the purifying body exfoliant is “formulated with a sensuous, nutrient and antioxidant-rich blend of efficacious bioactive ingredients that gently remove dead skin cells; leaving the skin noticeably softened, smooth, and deeply cleansed” OK. That’s a lot of buzzwords so let’s break it down: 🍃 Smell: the products smell might be my absolute favorite thing about it. The main smell is peppermint, but it’s softened and made more complex with ylang ylang, sandalwood, and bergamot. It makes my whole shower smell heavenly and leaves a fresh clean scent on my skin 🍃 Exfoliation: this body scrub uses aragonite and conchiolin proteins from pearl as it’s main exfoliating agent and it is every bit as gentle as GA describes. If you’re looking for a super strong feeling exfoliant, move along to the next scrub, but if you enjoy something gentler, it doesn’t get much better! Despite being gentle, this leaves my skin soft and has helped to clear up the KP on my arms with use 2-3x weekly 🍃 Packaging: I don’t love the metal ‘paint tubes’ as packaging for any skincare, and find that it’s especially frustrating with this scrub that comes out fast due to its thin texture 🍃 Cost: $34 for 170mL/5.7 oz - steep for a body scrub you use all the time, but not so high that it’s not worth splurging on every once in a while OVERALL IMPRESSION: I really like grown alchemists body scrub for its heavenly smell and the fact that it leaves my skin soft and healthy with no irritation. Between the packaging and cost, I probably wouldn’t buy it again but i would be tempted. Do you have a GA product you love? What is your go-to body scrub?
