When it comes to trying out products that allow you to indulge in an at-home spa experience, I am always first in line. True, there is nothing quite like going to the spa and getting a massage (which reminds me of that time I visited Spa Eastman - my first ever retreat!), but the reality is that spending a day at the spa or even just getting a 1-hour massage is not cheap by any means. That's where BVspa by Bon Vital* comes in: this new body care line has just landed in Canada and I've been putting some of their products to the test. Are these as good as they sound? You're about to find out!
The first two products I received are the BVspa Pink Grapefruit Salt Scrub and Pomegranate & Açai Berry Sugar Scrub. They both have a very sugary sweet scent which isn't usually my favourite kind of aroma, however these have actually been quite nice to use. Since sugar is coarser than salt, the sugar scrub allows for a more thorough and quick exfoliation. Because my legs are stubbornly dry year round, both scrubs have been coming in super handy to help smooth my lower body. I won't be surprised if I finish these come the end of summer since that is when I rely on body scrubs most!
To help lock in the moisture from my freshly exfoliated skin, the BVspa Pomegranate & Açai Berry Body Butter and Lavender & Rosemary Body Lotion have been coming in handy. The latter actually smells quite musky to me and kind of reminds me of a men's cologne, so I much prefer the body butter. These aren't particularly amazing compared to other moisturizers I have tried but still get the job done.
Bon Vital products contain a variety of essentials oils and are free of parabens, sulfates and phtalates. After being used by spa professionals in the US for the last quarter of a century, the line is crossing the border and is now available in Canada. BVspa by Bon Vital products can be purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart nationwide and retail for C$11.99.
Are these the best new skin care at the drugstore? I wouldn't go that far, but I think the scrubs are definitely worth checking out!
Will you be giving this new drugstore brand a try?
