Skin Care Saturday: MOR Marshmallow Sugar Body Scrub

A week or two ago while browsing in the cosmetics section of Myer, I noticed that MOR cosmetics had 25% off their entire range. I’ve read amazing things about the luxurious packaging and heavenly scents of MOR products, so the sale was too good to pass on. Although I felt like taking the entire range home, I decided to exercise some restraint, and brought home the MOR Marshmallow Sugar Body Scrub.

Texture

The MOR Marshmallow Sugar Scrub has quite a different texture to other sugar scrubs I’ve used in the past. When you scoop the scrub into your hand, rather than feeling like oil/butter + sugar,  it feels sort of .. gummy, almost like a melted chewy lolly in a way. I quite like this texture because the scrub is easy to apply and doesn’t slide off your skin as much as some oil based scrubs can.

The exfoliating particles consist of white sugar granules, and slightly smaller silica particles. It’s the perfect particle size and density (oh god I feel like I’m in physics 101) to really get in there and slough off dead skin.

Scent

The scrub has an overpowering scent of synthetic powdery florals, and sweet musk which really reminds me of perfumes that my Mum wears. I’m going to be completely honest and say that I don’t like this scent at all, in fact I get a little nauseous every time I get a whiff.

Fragrances are a very personal thing and I’m sure that plenty of people would love this scent, but I just don’t understand why they’ve put SO MUCH of it in- ‘parfum’ is 4th on the ingredient list (there’s more perfume than there is any of the oils) which makes it unusually high in concentration. After one use of the scrub in the shower the scent stays in my bathroom for almost a week!

I think that if there was a little less fragrance added to the scrub the scent wouldn’t really bother me. I really think there should be opened testers at Myer for MOR products.

Results:

MOR Marshmallow Sugar Body Scrub, as I mentioned earlier, has the perfect texture to remove flakey dead skin without irritating the skin. It’s one of the best body exfoliators I’ve used and leaves the skin polished and incredibly soft.

It rinses completely clean, with no oils left behind due to the high concentration of emulsifiers (Peg-8, Oleth-30) which is great for summer. For those with very dry skin, you’ll need to use a body moisturiser afterwards as the oils in the scrub don’t hang around after it’s rinsed off (unlike some oil based scrubs).
