Bodia rice scrubs

Bodia Spa is a chain of luxury spas in Cambodia. It is one of the first stops I make after touching down in Phnom Penh, because their massages work miracles when it comes to fighting jetlag.

Their body treatments are also very good, so when I saw their products in the airport shop, I decided to buy a body scrub and a facial scrub to bring back home. Here are my thoughts about the products after using them for almost three weeks:

Bodia Luscious Lemongrass Body Scrub

Hands down one of the best body scrubs I have ever tried. The rice powder is coarse enough to give you the feeling of some serious exfoliation and the different kinds of essential oils leave your skin soft and subtle afterwards. As a matter of fact, the skin feels so moisturized that body lotion seems unnecessary, which I think is rather unusual for a body scrub.

Compared to other body scrubs, Bodia’s scrub requires that you add quite a lot of water. It is not enough that the skin is damp upon application, you will also need to mix the scrub with water in your hand to get the best result. Without water, the scrub tends to clump and does not stick to the skin.

Bodia Facial Scrub Jasmine Rice & Rose

Bodia’s facial scrub has finer rice granules than the body scrub, so it is mild enough to use in the face, while still providing a scrub that you can feel. Just like the body scrub, the facial scrub requires you to add quite a lot of water to get the desired texture. Remember to also give your hands a good scrub while you are at it, and they will be soft and fragrant for the rest of the day.

You can buy Bodia products at the spas (cheapest) or in the airport (a few dollars more expensive), or you can order the products from the Bodia online store
