Deborah Lippmann Marshmallow Whipped Hand & Cuticle Scrub Review
Tuesday, March 14, 2017
Let's talk hands & nails this week on A Very Sweet Blog! The beginning of this year, celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann came out with a hand scrub called Marshmallow $29. The name alone had me hooked and I knew I had to purchase it. I've never used a scrub specifically for hands. Have you? I just use my favorite scrub, Soap & Glory's The Breakfast Scrub all over my body (including my hands). Marshmallow is a whipped hand & cuticle scrub. Let me stop right here. It smells like coconut & marshmallow. It has a beautiful pearlescent/opalescent color. It's fluffy & light like marshmallow creme you would find in a jar. Now don't worry, it's NOT STICKY like marshmallow. A little goes a long way! I've tried it on both dry & wet hands. I prefer it on dry hands. When mixed with water (on wet hands) it reduces it's effectiveness. There are also small granules in this, which help with exfoliation. After applying, rubbing it in and rinsing, my hands felt very smooth & soft. My hands even had a glow. I also found that each time I used it, my hands got better & better. Marshmallow moisturizes, but I find its only temporary. It's more of an exfoliate. Marshmallow is brand new and what I think would compliment it (and what I feel is missing), would be a Marshmallow Hand Cream (Deborah, make a hand cream!!!). This needs to be a duo! Exfoliate and then apply a hand cream that would moisturize. I love the marshmallow scent of this product and a hand cream would be the icing on the cake. The packaging is very luxurious. The outer packaging is a square jar, and housed within is a circular pot which holds the product. You get a lot of product, and a little of this goes a long way. This scrub also boasts AHA and BHA fruit & plant acids, Perlite (volcanic ash - lift dead skin cells & clear pores), Marshmallow Root Extract (calming & soothing) and Glycerin/Coconut Oil (moisturizing). Do you NEED this? My answer is (and I should've done this more when I was younger), under your eyes...your hands....your feet...and your neck need products that target those areas. Those areas show aging and require a little more than your everyday lotions & body scrubs. This product is really good, but I haven't tried any other hand scrubs. So I have nothing to compare to Marshmallow. Love the scrub, but I feel it needs a companion (a moisturizer/hand cream to compliment it) for everything to be in sync.
