The Boots Natural Collection Kiwi Body Scrub (infact all natural collection body exfoliators) comes in a transparent plastic squeeze tube with flip flop cap. It’s a thoughtful no fuss packaging, also sturdy enough to be carried around easily without any damage or spillage fear.
Texture wise this scrub is very light & lean towards runny side. The exfoliating beads are very tiny but there are oodles of them scattered in the transparent pale green liquidy gel medium. On body they feel like tiny sand granules rubbing against your skin, of course in a more gentle way. Usually we see slightly bigger granules in body exfoliators for the purpose of quick & effective body polishing. But surprisingly these natural collection exfoliators have tinier beads for the purpose but more in number. I have Vanilla one also & it’s the same case. The granules does exfoliate nicely but requires some serious massaging & also be prepared for the messy floor after the rinse. For my dry skin need more granular exfoliator than this & I don’t get that polished look on my skin which I find using TBS Cocoa Butter one where it has much bigger granules. For me this Kiwi scrub is kind of daily use one. It consumes lot’s of my time & I tend to keep rubbing it (gently) & yet dissatisfied with the outcome. To add up it gives that uncomfortable stretchy feel to the skin which I absolutely hate. I need to rush for moisturising my body post use without any breathing second. This is more of a sensitive & Combi-Oily skin product. The product does not lather at all & feels very soft because of the liquid-gel texture. The only thing I like about this exfoliator is the heavenly fruity fragrance For me this makes a good face exfoliator rather than body one. I would more recommend this to sensitive & combi skin females.
- Sturdy, Hygienic & user friendly packaging.
- Soft & smooth liquidy gel like texture.
- Nice fruity fragrance.
- Exfoliators are not very abrasive & good for sensitive skin.
- Exfoliators are not good enough for dry skin which need bit more granular scrubs.
- The tiny particles create a lot of mess on the floor post rinsing.
- Gives an uncomfortable stretchy feel to skin.
- Availability is an issue.
Boots natural collection Kiwi Body Scrub will work well for sensitive – combi skin. For dry skin the scrub is softer & milder where one needs slightly granular scrub to shed off those tones of dead skin cells. It feels uncomfortable on dry skin post use giving an uncomfortable stretchy skin. Though natural collection has got some heavenly fragrances but it fails to perform on my super dry skin.
