African Botanics Marula African Muti Mud Mineral Body Scrub for Perfected Summer Skin | Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Given that the warmer months of the year naturally invite exfoliation to reveal healthy, youthful, glowing skin– it only stands to reason to select a wondrous exfoliator for the job. Having tried a wide variety of body scrubs, there is one true standout that won my heart immediately. African Botanics Marula African Muti Mud Mineral Body Scrub is a revelation in exfoliators, and from the moment that you open the jar you will immediately see why. 

This ultra-luxe mineral and phytonutrient-rich Muti Mud-based scrub, which is inspired by an ancient spa ritual, has a delectable light cocoa scent that ignites the senses while it detoxifies and purifies the skin. Its exfoliating particles are at once ultra-efficient and gentle, making the perfect choice for all skin types– including the most sensitive. While African Botanics Marula African Muti Mud Mineral Body Scrub gently removes dead skin cells, it not only leaves skin soft, supple and moisturized, but it also leaves it noticeably luminous with improved texture. Unlike many oil-based body scrubs, this one neither leaves an oil-slick on the skin, nor on the shower floor– therefore there is no added clean-up after use. If ever there was a perfect body scrub, it is this one.

There are two wonderful ways that one can use this scrub: First, in the traditional way one can apply to dry or damp skin and gently massage it in a circular motion. The second method is to apply it to dry skin and leave it on for 10-15 minutes to allow the Muti Mud to detox the skin, then rinse of while massaging in a circular motion. The results are astounding, and my skin has never felt as soft and smooth as it does with this amazing scrub.

It is worthy to note that this formula is concentrated– therefore a little goes a long way, and one jar will last a long time.
According to African Botanics,

A luxurious body scrub inspired by an ancient spa ritual. Rich in phytonutrients and minerals this multi-faceted treatment deeply exfoliates with fine lava crystals to remove dead skin cells leaving it stimulated, radiant and invigorated. Improves texture and skin tone with essential minerals from Africa’s ancient volcanic lava formations.

African Muti Mud and a complex of oxygenating mineral clays with Hematite stone extract detoxify and re-energise whilst the synergy of soothing African plant extracts, Marula, Baobab and Avocado oils soften, calm and smooth skin texture. Peppermint and Cocoa detoxes and purifies your skin leaving you feeling rejuvenated. Regular exfoliation prepares your skin for the application of hydrating, anti-aging and self-tanning skincare products.

Directions: 1-2 per week. Apply to body in bath or shower using upward circular motion. Concentrate on dry areas including feet, knees and elbows. Rinse thoroughly with warm water using a terry cloth mitt or a hand towel if possible. Follow with Marula Firming Botanical Body Oil or Marula Botanical Body Cream. Can also be used as a mud treatment: Apply to dry skin, leave on 5-15 minutes then rinse with warm water.

  4. Now that's a scrub!! My friend's daughter made some homemade scrub but it had much too much liquid and not enough sugar crystals. I love the thick scrub, and this one has Marula too!! Divine

    1. It really is, Allison! While I have quite a few body scrubs in rotation currently, this is by far my favorite! Homemade scrubs are a nice alternative to the store bought variety, but I agree with you– I, too, prefer the thicker variety! Yes, the Marula is a definite added bonus!

  6. I need a scrub that "scrubs" but does not "scrub too much that it hurts". I just woke up from my siesta so my mind isn't working... haha! But you know what I mean. I will look into this!

  7. Now chocolate is a scent I can admire. I love the idea of leaving it on 10 minutes prior to showering. If I ever get my hands on this that's what I'll try first.

  9. Muti Mud Mineral Body Scrub. That sounds like a little bit of heaven in a jar. I normally like very scrubby scrubs for my bod but a nice mud mask for all over? I could go for that. Bonus for smelling like cocoa. <3

    1. It is absolutely heaven in a jar. This one definitely has good scrubby particles, but it also doubles as a mud mask. It does both so effectively, and it smells delicious!

  10. I immediately though it looked chocolatey, so the scent seems like a perfect fit. This sounds like such a great scrub!
