Body scrubs seem to be all the rage right now. I've tried quite a few over the years, however I've only tried a handful of natural ones, which I've quickly grown to love. There are of course many DIY recipes out there, but it sure is nice to get treated to one that is already made for you. Coming out of the rougher months, my skin could definitely use a little extra TLC, so when Jealous Body Scrub* showed up in my mailbox, I couldn't help but put it to the test that same day.

Jealous Body Scrub has many benefits, the most obvious one being the sloughing off of dead skin cells to reveal smoother skin. Other benefits include reducing the appearance of cellulite, eczema, stretch marks, age spots, psoriasis & acne. Basically, skin imperfections don't seem to stand a chance with this one. Acne and stretch marks are my major issues, so I was looking forward to see how Jealous fared. It does feel quite abrasive, but not to the point that my skin turns red from rubbing it in. That's how you can tell a good scrub from a not so good one. It feels really nice on my face too, I just have to be extra careful not to get it in my eyes (and if you do, a quick rinse will help). A little shout out to its packaging is also needed; I love how simplistic, clean and earth-friendly it looks, and the resealable closure keeps it looking and smelling fresh long after opening.
Jealous Body Scrub is made fresh in beautiful Vancouver, Canada. It can be purchased online for C$18.95, with international shipping available (free to Canada and US).
I leave you with this song because, well, it's only fitting (Montreal represent)!
