Without further ado I will start with the first item I purchased. I actually purchased another jar of this about a year ago and never followed up on the free refill. I forget what I paid but it was near 50 or so this time around and yes you get a refill, not that i have yet to refill any of the products but I suppose if I did last time I would probably end up buying something else. It is good sales. You can compare costs, but then compare refills with commitment and it actually makes some sense.
So what is the product here? Actually it is salt. Not regular salt but salt from the dead sea in mineral oil with a fragarance which is a lot like baby oil. No, it is not intended as a facial product. This is designed for hands.
I bought this from the L company (but I think the L and FF companies are somehow linked with L having less for skin but more for hair and I believe both offer services with the products as well as the products.) I do not get paid for any endorsements, sales or referrals.
So do I like this product or cosnider it worth using? To be honest, not at first, well with the first batch I bought. And that I actually used everywhere. Being honest, what put me off at first, and that was the smell. And part of that mayhave been me or the smells I had recently been exposed to before scrubbing myself with it. The baby oil smell made me self conscious that I smelt like a diaper and I think the oils in my skin especially on my face and head were drawn out and reacted causing me to feel embarrassment like I had lost face and replaced it quickly with what whatever weight loss it was or might have been. I don’t have facebook, but this may have been a reason preventing me.
But this is not designed as a face or body scrub! And yes with continued use I did see very good benefits and improved smell. This is a hand scrub and it does leave the hands very well scrubbed feeling very soft and supple. I do not feel overly self-conscious about my hands when I see them after being scrubbed with the salt and oil. I do not feel inferior, embarrassed, or self-conscious if somebody actually does or appears to have bigger hands or longer fingers than me.
This product I actually do like and it did improve my scent and make me aware of several other things I could improve on I previously just accepted as unchangeable or slowly progressing to worse.
But I am trying to unlock secrets, with continued use and trials I did! So the value to me is just more than a self esteem and confidence boost, and the effect is more than just a placebo. The assurance this gives me about my hands though makes me immune to psychological hand intimidation tactics so often used by people I encounter who try it at every opportunity. It just seems to much an amusing priority for some to try and intimidate and belittle. Those feelings can be scrubbed away though I have found out.
But I typed a lot in this post already, so the what is particularly physcially benefitting to me as well as elaboration on how this has affected my persona and behavior for the better will come in the next and later.
