Activbod Pick Me Up Scrub | Review

Activbod Pick Me Up Scrub

Activbod is a new range of 'gender-neutral' products designed to help the body pre and post exercise. The range can be found in Boots here and includes skin coolers, muscle warmers and the Pick Me Up Scrub* which I was sent to try.

The range was developed by skin and sports experts to assist everyone from regular or occasional gym goers to trained athletes - of which admittedly I am neither. Perhaps I'll be more suited to their mood-boosting balm to get me in the zone!

Whilst the team researched the effects of exercise on the skin and developed this regime to cope with the exposure to heat, sweat and the lack of moisture and I may not be the ideal 'test case' for this product due to my lack of physical activity in the gym I do find myself doing a lot of walking, I have been known to 'cut a rug' on the dance floor in hot and sweaty nightclubs and then there is the joy of travelling London Underground, weighed down by bags on my shoulders and battling the ever changing weather conditions of Spring in the UK where trains can go from ice cold to hot and sweaty in a matter of minutes. Activbod's ranges are formulated with ingredients for protection, perspiration and body odour control (side note maybe more people on the underground could benefit from this!) and  prepare muscles to aid recovery, maybe not specifically for carrying too many shopping bags but I'll take any help I can get.

Activbod Pick Me Up Scrub is a deep cleansing body polish to scrub away dirt, cleanse pores and stimulate circulation with an energising scent (pepper, eucalyptus and lemon) that makes it perfect for morning use. I particularly find that since cutting my hair shorter so it sits just below my neckline on my shoulders as well as the recent scarf wearing I've had to pay more attention to ensure I give my back and shoulders a scrub from any build up and the light gritty - or micro-scrubbing particles as they're know - formula of Activbod makes it perfect to do this job. Whilst I love my Breakfast Scrub from Soap & Glory it's a little harder to work with on my back, often dropping the product before managing to hit my back with it.

As we enter holiday season and the chance to visit warmer climes and becoming more activity whether it's walking miles sightseeing or just a few extra laps in the hotel pool Activbod Pick Me Up Scrub definitely gets a plus for it's transportable and lightweight tube - which makes it easier to throw in your gym bag too.

So whilst I may not be the gym bunny this product is intended for I've definitely found that it really does suit everyone and has worked quite well for me. What are your favourite body scrubs?

  1. This sounds really lovely, I quite like the simple packaging too xo

    1. The only downside I've found is I've whizzed through it! x

  2. I have never heard of this brand before. I personally love The Body Shop Argan Oil scrub :) x
