TWHS Reviews SheaMoisture Lemongrass & Ginger Dead Sea Salt Soak
Short of chasing my dreams in high heels, the closest I have come to muscle strain lately is rounding up the bounty of leaves in my yard. But along came the experience of nursing my husband with the flu, and the jar of Lemongrass and Ginger Dead Sea Salt Soak sent to me for review by SheaMoisture sounded like the ideal way to soothe him.
Can we say lemon meringue pie?! The scent of lemon makes me long for the dessert I never got around to savoring this summer. The texture of the bath salts are as fine as any pristine beach sand you've frolicked in. And with him being bedridden state, I was looking for all ways to comfort him.
Unfortunately, this is where the experience dissolves right into the rush of the bath water. The scent disappears quickly, so I infused his bathtime by rubbing him down with their previously-reviewed Lemongrass and Tea Tree Body Scrub w/Orange Peel. He said that he felt better mostly because I catered to him; not so much the salt soak; awww!
The benefits of the lemongrass in the bath salts is that it acts as a natural astringent and anti-inflammatory to help balance skin. The Ginger helps to relieve muscular cramps, spasms, aches and eases stiffness in joints.
In conclusion, the salt soak is best for an in-home spa experience when paired with the body scrub.
Available at Target and Walgreen locations nationwide, the body scrub/bath salts make the perfect one-two punch for a hostess gift this holiday season.
