Gadi 21 Minerals Dead Sea Scrub


I will happily admit to being a right scrubber; there is nothing I can use in the shower that will make me happier than a good scrub, and I hoard exfoliators as though there's a sugar shortage. When I spotted a lovely 400g jar of Gadi Dead Sea Body Scrub for £5 (RRP £50 apparently...can that be true?) on Fragrance Direct, I had to pop it in the basket. That website is dangerous. 

The packaging of the product is lovely, minimalist and classic, plus I love scrubs that come in big tubs, which is, come to think of it, probably because they tend to be grainier. However, if I had paid £50, I would probably have wanted the packaging to feel more expensive. The same goes for the scent, Orange Vanilla, which is perfectly pleasant (boyfriend's verdict: "that smells like toffee"), but not quite to my taste. However, for £5, my first impressions were very positive indeed and had me excited to get scrubbing!

The scrub itself is quite oily, with decent-sized grains of Dead Sea Salt that really get to work on buffing the skin to perfection. It feels very luxurious, and the oil really lingers afterwards, leaving the skin incredibly smooth and silky. If you aren't keen on the feeling of oil on your skin, I would not recommend this at all, as even after I had shaved my legs and used shower gel, I could still feel a fine layer of oil on my legs. I however, consider this to be the best thing about the product, as I love that I can either skip moisturiser afterwards, or use it and get a double-whammy of softness. This is the best scrub I've used in a while, so I just wish that I liked the scent better.

Have you ever heard of Gadi, or tried their products? What scrubs do I need to get my hands on next?

  1. This looks lovely! Fragrance direct is definitely dangerous, I always end up spending more than I intended because everything's such a bargain.

    1. I get ridiculous on there! It's the IKEA effect, if everything seems cheap, you kind of forget that it will all actually add up! That said, I've found some absolute gems on there, that I would never have picked up otherwise. x

    1. Well if I could find it on the website, I would have posted the link, but annoyingly it appears to have vanished. The only place I can even find it now is on the Gadi 21 website, where it is actually £50! But keep your eyes peeled, things do reappear on Fragrance Direct, and I will be looking, so if I do see it again I will let you know. xx

  3. I can't believe the Gadi website sells this for £50?! Who would pay that for a body scrub haha?! I love Fragrance Direct as the reductions are so huge, and you get to try brands and shades you'd normally never consider! xx

    1. I know, I would expect it to make me look airbrushed and perfect for £50! I really agree about Fragrance Direct, I doubt I would ever have picked this up if it wasn't so cheap. x
