ESPA Detoxifying Salt Scrub

espa detoxifying salt scrub review

Spring has sprung, bringing with it fresh flowers, baby lambs and new beginnings and as with all seasons, it’s time to change up our beauty routines and prep for the season ahead. Out with the old, in with the new, or in this case, out with the old dreary skin and in with bright, refreshed summer ready skin - hello, ESPA Detoxifying Salt Scrub.

Enriched with grapefruit, cypress and eucalyptus, the detoxifying salt scrub gently buffs away dead skin cells, revitalises sluggish circulation and eliminates toxins, leaving your skin smooth and glowing. This is the first body scrub I’ve tried by ESPA, and I’ve got to say I’m impressed, ESPA you never seem to fail me. The scrub is really thick, none of this tiny bead nonsense, just really gritty, summer sand between your toes, thickness.

I half expected my skin to be as dry as the salt I was rubbing all over it afterwards as it’s much harsher that I expected but I was really surprised at how moisturised my skin actually felt. The scrub is enriched with sweet almond oil that keeps the scrub wet between uses (as long as you put the lid on properly!) and I swear, the almond oil scotch guarded my skin. When I’m rinsing it off in the shower the water doesn’t so much as run off my skin, it sort of sits there in droplets. It’s a strange experience but I like it.

One thing about ESPA, if you haven’t used their products before is they are really heavily scented. I actually really like this, it’s a really rich, heady floral scent that just smells like a luxury spa product and it leaves me and my bathroom smelling divine. I’m all for bringing the spa experience home with me as often as possible, it’s good for the soul and even better for my bank balance. Oh, and let's not forget how gorgeous the heavy duty glass jar looks on the side of the bath, swanky!

To get the best out of ESPAs detoxifying salt scrub, you’re going to want to body-brush your skin as often as possible (I dry brush on a daily basis), use the scrub twice a week, and always follow with a nourishing body butter or oil. 

How often do you do a total body scrub?

Until next time,


  1. Sounds pretty nice and I bet it smells thanks to the almond oil and floral scent!


  2. You see Sarah, if you had 2 kids by now you wouldn't be able to afford fancy spmancy products like this ;)

  4. This looks and sounds wonderful! I use a body scrub by Sanctuary twice a week and use a body butter afterwards.
