Island Basics Green Tea and Olive Body Scrub Review

To quote myself on my previous post on the Island Basics Pink Pomelo Body Butter, I'm a go-green / choose all-natural products kinda gal - especially when it comes to skin products. I mean, our body absorbs everything that we put on our skin, after all, so why slather it with chemicals that don't have any benefits in the long run, right?

Well, I have good news for you: thanks to Gellie Abogado of So Gelleesh, I was able to collaborate with the non-profit organization KMBI and try out several Island Basics products in conjunction with them. Second up: the Island Basics Green Tea and Olive Body Scrub!


I'm not much of a body scrub person, to be honest, but I know as much as anybody else that exfoliation is vital to keep our skin young and supple.

I have actually been using this Island Basics body scrub for about a month now and I can honestly say that my skin is softer since I started using it and it leaves me with a much cleaner feeling, too. Unlike other body scrubs that I've tried in the past, it doesn't feel too rough when I scrub it on, either.

Other Pros:

- It exfoliates the skin to remove deep-seated dirt.
- It vows to make the skin healthier and smoother.
It has the goodness of vitamin E, VCO, Japanese green tea, olive oil, olive extracts, apricot seeds and foaming lotion in it.

The Cons:

- It's a bit hard to scoop out the scrub from its container.

Overall rating: 3.5 stars out of 5.

Apparently, this scrub is perfect for revitalizing the skin and it has anti-aging properties, too. I personally can't wait to try out other Island Basic body scrubs, too - especially the decadent dark chocolate one. Even the name itself is already driving me crazy!

All photos were taken from the Island Basics website.

They also have this scrub available in Mango and Papaya, Seakelp, Wheatbran and Almond, Lavender and Tea Tree, and Strawberry and Licorice. And guess what? They only cost P150 each!

Do check out the Island Basics website to see their growing selection of all-natural bath, body and home care products. You are sure to find something that will fit your personal lifestyle and needs at very affordable prices.

You know what else is great? Until January 2012, Island Basics will give one peso per item sold to the "Piso para sa KMBI" project, which will help KMBI fund various environmental initiatives. So far, KMBI has already undertaken river clean ups, recycling, urban gardening, clean up drives, tree and mangrove planting, and waterways de-clogging.

To find out more about KMBI, visit their website here. I support them wholeheartedly. You should, too.
