This is a blast from the past for me – I used to use it, but never loved the vanilla smell. I thought I’d give it another go because I love a really good body scrub and get fed up with being disappointed with twiddly bits of loofah or ‘beads’ that don’t do anything. While it is a treat product at £68, it’s one of the few that I think is worth every penny (or most of them, anyway). This scrub really does tackle dry skin, leaving it super soft and gleaming. The base is very, very rich so there is absolutely no moisturising needed afterwards; the second you step out of the bath your skin feels supple and hydrated with a film of oil that you can massage in. The smell is still there – I don’t love it – but the texture is so divine that I really don’t care. A little goes a long way – so it should at that price – so it will last quite some time, and if you love that warm, vanilla scent, it’s a properly pampering product that absolutely does the job and perfect for chilly winter evenings to make you feel cosy and completely cosseted.

This sounds lovely, I love vanilla.
Don’t forget with scrubs to check that the scrubby bits are natural and not micro plastics which damage filter feeding marine life such as mussels.
scrubby bits are sugar in this one so no worries…
that sounds divine! £68 for a scrub it still way too much though!
This scrub is one I will try. you rated the Darphin Nourishing Body Scrub highly and I have just bought my third tube, how does this scrub compare to the Darphin Scrub?
Great Fantastic Informative blog by the way.
Hi D: it’s much, much richer. I love the Darphin one; its a great summer scrub, but if your skin is getting into that winter dryness, I’d say JM is probably better for that. x
Sounds absolutely gorgeous! My body skin is so odd. It’s really dry and itchy, but I can get clogged pores if I overmoisturise. But my skin still feels flaky! ARGH!
How divine is this scrub? You make it sound like a gorgeous, delicious must-have…
Sounds soooo indulgent! I think this would make a really great beauty gift (for me hopefully!)
