Melvita Algascience Body Scrub – Immense.

This is a product that I absolutely could have sworn I had featured ages ago. I would have put money on it. I do hope that I’m not repeating myself – if anyone finds a post with it in, let me know! Actually, this product is well worthy of a repeat mention, so if this is “take two” then so be it. Melvita’s Algascience Body Scrub is – as the title declares – immense.

You know when you just find body scrubs to be a bit of a faff? When you can’t be bothered to catch all the salty clumps that fall off into the shower tray and you don’t have time to spend either collecting them up or poking them down the plughole with your toe? Well in the event that you’re looking for a no-faff scrub, Melvita’s your man. Or lady. I’m not sure which sex Melvita is “of”, really.

The Algascience scrub has been knocking about for a while, and I am nearly finished on my first tube – I have used it loads! (Which is why I really do think I’ve reviewed it before…) It has the perfect stick-to-you texture that means the scrub never slides or falls off, there’s no wastage and it’s easy to really get going with the massaging action. It’s also quick to rinse away – the scrub particles seem to dissolve before you even get to the rinse stage if you scrub away vigorously enough!

As a skin-polishing treatment, the Algascience is excellent, but there’s an extra, too. The entire Algascience range has been formulated to accelerate the process of draining away toxins and excess water which in turn should have some kind of positive effect on your bod. I know that everyone is always very sceptical about anti-cellulite products, but I bloody love them! Slap it all on, is what I say, everything helps when you’re faced with a swimwear shoot in front of thirty-three French clients.

The latest product to launch into the Algascience range is the Contouring Serum – this can be used after the scrub (OUT of the shower, people, OUT of the shower!) to really boost firmness and tone the skin. It contains the unfortunately named Fucus which helps to firm tissues and improve elasticity. Haven’t given this serum a proper test yet, but I can tell you that it’s light and non-sticky and has a gorgeous cooling effect upon application.

You can follow that with the Melvita Slimming Oil if you wish. Now I know for definite that I’ve reviewed that, so I’m off for a few minutes to search for it – otherwise I’ll think I’m going bonkers!

    Ahahhaaha, fucus!! That really made me LOL! I’m often a little too lazy with my body scrubs, just think that I can’t be asked to wear those scrubbing gloves and have a work out on my own body in my own shower!

    This looks lovely Ruth, thanks for this review!

    Thanks Ruth, this sounds great. As you say, the fact that it sticks to you, unlike so many other scrubs, is a huge plus. Look forward to reading your review on the serum.

    I brush my body before shower every single day since you published the video about body brushing, and I’m grateful to you cause, for me, there’s no anti-cellulite like this. I’m thin but used to have lots of cellulite, now I don’t have. Do you still brush your body? For me, there’s no need of body scrubs cause the brush does an exfoliation and I don’t want to damage my skin with over-exfoliation. Thanks for your daily reviews, I love them, your sense of humour and also Mr. Bear!

    Oohhh, I checked Feel Unique but it had sold out so I turned to Melvita web site and thank god I did – they have 50% off so this scrub is only 8 quid at the moment! You have to pay for P&P but it is still great value!
