Here’s my review of the Daily Body Scrub and Daily Body Serum:
Daily Body Scrub – It’s a combination of crushed grape seeds (by-products from the Washington and California wine industry), milled corn cob meal (non-GMO), honey, white & green tea extracts with mildly foaming coconut and shea based cleansers. It’s ultra mild and can be used daily. 10 oz bottle retails for $24.
This scrub does exactly what it claims to do. This is a great scrub for those with dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin. The scrubbies are perfect. This is not a harsh scrub. If you have hellacious heels or scaly elbows, you’ll need something with more abrasion or a chemical exfoliant. This scrub has a light, cleansing foam. The scrubbies are in a super rich base and rinse away effortlessly. Seriously, this scrub is more moisturizing than lotions that I have used in the past. It refines and nourishes. And yes, you can use it daily. My winter skin is thankful for this product.
Daily Body Serum – It’s a nourishing HoneyOil base with antioxidant white & green tea extract, lycopene, and alpha lipoic acid. 10 oz spray bottle retails for $29.
This serum is an oil. I’ve always thought serum was a glamorous word and it does sound much better than oil. This oil is not sticky or thick. It absorbs quickly and nourishes the skin. If you like to use oils as a moisturizer, I highly recommend this. I’ve used so many oils as body moisturizers in the past and even I’m impressed by this one. It comes in a spray bottle, which I love. It looks so good on bare legs and it won’t leave “grease spots” everywhere! I love how this makes my skin feel.
The Scent – Both products have the same scent. I assume this is BijaBody’s “signature” scent since their other products smell like it too. The scent is sweet like honey but not animalic. It’s like a gourmet honey marshmallow. It’s a soft, comforting scent. If you like vanilla, honey or tonka scents, you will really like BijaBody’s “signature”. These items are scented but it isn’t overwhelming or lingering, interfering with your daily scent choices. It’s obvious that these products are about nourishing and treating the skin and not perfuming it. But, I think it smells really good. They should make a solid perfume in this scent 😉
I really like both products but if for some sick reason I had to only choose one, I’d choose the scrub. It’s gentle enough for the entire body including the neck and chest. I haven’t had another physical scrub like it. The Daily Serum is really good too.
