IN.FUSED Body Scrub

I have been recently introduced to a brand new company IN.FUSED, which specialise in 100% vegan body scrubs and soaks. So when this IN.FUSED Citrus Scrub* arrived at my doorstep, claiming to remove blemishes such as stretch marks, Eczema and Psoriasis, I couldn't wait to give it a try.

Naturally after going through a pregnancy I have been left with more stretch marks then I can even count, not to mention the ones that have been around since my teenage years. To be honest I have given up on trying to get rid of these 'tiger stripes' as they are sometimes called, because I just don't have the patience for applying and massaging lotions & potions every day, god knows how many times a day. But a body scrub, one that I would regularly use in the shower anyway, now this intrigued me and as you may notice from the grubby packaging, it was a product I was eager to use straight away that evening before photographing it in natural daylight (bad blogger I know).

IN.FUSED have a range of different scents such as Coconut and Mint, but I have to say I have been very pleased with the Citrus one. This particular scrub is a blend of coffee and brown sugar to buff away the skin, but also containing natural citrus oils to moisturise and target the problematic areas. Upon first opening the package I was hit with a strong scent of coffee, which I like don't get me wrong, but immediately I was worried the citrus scent wouldn't actually be noticeable. However once I started massaging this into the skin, the fresh citrus scent came through beautifully and it was such a lovely combination. I throughly enjoyed scrubbing my skin with this after a long soak in the bath as it immediately made me feel refreshed. I didn't actually think a scrub could be moisturising, even if it says so on the packet, but again I was completely surprised to not only see that my skin was left feeling super smooth but also hydrated enough that I could skip on the moisturiser. 

As far as stretch marks are concerned I am still unsure whether this banishes them completely. My stretch marks are quite old now and on their way towards fading to a silvery shade, so I can't see a huge difference after using the scrub on two separate occasions now. But what I did notice is that after getting out of the shower the stretch marks didn't seem as red and prominent like they usually get from the effect hot water has on them. So my conclusion is that this will actually target problems if they are relatively new to the skin (which I can't test on myself).

Another thing to note is that the packaging is not exactly my favourite, as I prefer plastic tubs for their practicality (it's just a personal choice). The bag itself does seal back really well until the next time you use it and will keep the product inside dry, even if the sticker part gets a bit grubby. I can see this lasting me a long time since I usually exfoliate once or twice a week, because you don't need a whole lot of product like I had originally thought. Once this is in contact with the wet skin, it becomes like a paste and glides on so well, so you are easily able to massage it into the skin. 

Overall I have been so impressed and will continue to enjoy using the product. If I see a huge difference in my stretch marks over time, I can definitely tell you that I will be trying out more of their scrubs in the future and tell you all about. Have you tried any products from IN.FUSED before or would you be temped to try one of their body scrubs? I'd love to know what you think…
