As regular readers of The Amazing Blog will know I’m a bit of a fan of the ARK Skincare range. I first discovered the brand when I was given their wonderful Nourishing Body Lotion and as you will see from my post, I did rather eulogise about it! Still I have to say, that even today it’s one of my favourite Body Lotion. However, I am now reviewing their Invigorating Body Scrub l which I had my eye on for a while… And just to reiterate from my previous post, Age Appropriate Skincare , ARK Skincare has divided its skin therapy into three age appropriate product lines. Starting with ‘Age Prepare’ (late teens to early 30s), ‘Age Maintain’ (mid 30s to 50) and finally moving onto their ‘Age Repair’ (50 and beyond). This Body Scrub is part of the ‘Essential Skincare’ range and seems to span across all three of these age-related product ranges. ARK believes that there are two main skin transitional periods in the ageing process where there is a dramatic shift in hormone production and a significant change in the way the body functions; i.e. in late 20s to early 30s and late 50s to early 60s. What I particularly liked about this Invigorating Body Scrub is that is very gentle but also extremely effective. It smells divine (echoing a similar fragrance to the Body Lotion) and contains small flakes of loofah (a very nice and natural ingredient), as well as Multifruit Acids and invigorating Mint.
As my beauty routine changes seasonally, this is the time of year when I need to have an excellent body scrub on hand. It is my essential item in order to keep my skin looking tip-top. As any regular user of fake tan will know, it’s crucial to exfoliate at least twice a week sloughing off the dead skin cells to keep an even looking tan for longer. This ARK Invigorating Body Scrub truly did not disappoint, it banished dry patches and energised my skin ready for a fresh application of my chosen fake tan. This tidy little 200ml tube at £24 really does now have pride of place in my shower and I’m sure will continue to stay there for many other seasons to come.
