Perlier Volcanic Thermal Scrub

Hey everyone~!

I have posted about the Italian brand Perlier before, and here they are again. Perlier on HSN has sent me the Volcanic Thermal Scrub via iFabbo! 


I have used at least a hundred different scrubs in my life... if not more. But, this one was special. It was not oil based, but instead the exfoliating particles were suspended in a gel like substance. It did not foam up, even though I thought it could be a possibility. The size of particle varies greatly, there are fine powders and coarser granules mixed together, definitely something that would set a scrub apart from the rest. For the most part, scrubs contain a particular size of grit and attempt to stay consistent. 

The actual experience was pretty nice, the scrub did not feel super heavy or leave a film on my skin after I had rinsed it off. I feel that this part of the reason many beauty lovers are turned off from scrubs. When you have to work extra in order to feel clean after taking a shower it is not the best feeling. The light gel left my skin feeling clean, smooth and moisturized. 

There is a light clean scent to the scrub, this makes it easy to convince "manly" men (I say this mostly as a poke at my friends who don't like to use flowery scented scrubs but still want to feel smooth) to use a scrub. I personally like the slightly more clean scent to some of the heavy syrupy fragrances I have experienced in the past. It is fresh, clean, and reminds me greatly of the perfume line "Clean". Almost like a unisex deodorant soap. I enjoy it greatly :) 

Overall, I think this is a really great product. According to the HSN website here are the benefits of this product;

  • Complex of key ingredients contains water from the hot spring concession located in the municipality of Abana Terme (Padua)
  • Helps optimize skin's elasticity for a more youthful appearance
  • Helps combat visible signs of aging such as the appearance of dull-looking skin
  • Formulated with key ingredients that are rich in mineral salts
  • Contains minerals of different particle size for dual rejuvenating and smoothing beauty action
  • Finer powders smooth skin and rough area 
  • Helps leave skin soft and velvety 

That seems a bit of an overstatement in my opinion, but not all benefits will be apparent at the first few uses so they might be more visible after a few more regular uses. 

Overall, I would definitely recommend this scrub, on its own it goes for about $25USD which is not terrible. I would not say that it is the best scrub I have ever used, but it does deserve a place in my top 15 list. 

Thats about it! 

Until Next Time,
