What is 'body scrub'?

Post by Daleinpattaya » Fri Oct 25, 2019 2:32 pm

So many of the massage shops in Pattaya and Jomtien on the menu list painted on the front window include BODY SCRUB. Can someone please describe for me what this is? And, just in case, a recommended shop for such service? Many thanks.

It's literally as the title -scrubbing your skin to be mildly exfoliating. I've only tried that service in Hanoi, so cannot make a recommendation for Pattaya.
Places like Boots also sell exfoliating products. Typically some slimey gel with small rough plastic particles in them.

I have had a couple of body scrubs, once in Siem Reap and once in Bangkok and was disappointed both times.
I expected it to be a firm massage which exfoliated the skin.
Both times it was very gentle with the product used feeling not a great deal different to a normal massage.

I usually use a self-service body scrub - better known as a shower . . .

You might give it a try and see if you like it.

It's a bit of a messy process, but I've come to quite like it. (In my experience it's mostly done with an organic compound.).

During every stay in the past i had one time first scrub massage and after the real massage. I selected mostly different young men or took it with 4 hands. Had always around 3 hours of fun. No sex during scrub. I liked the cleaning of skin and after had good feeling. It needs lots of time for many showers depending from cream or oil or coffee taking for scrub. Best adventure was Blue House opposite Tukcom/swiss bakery Grottino. Had there 8 hand orgy. Never will forget.

Body scrub removes more dead skin than taking a shower. I vaguely remember one body scrub (I think they used salt, certainly better than microplastic) and skin felt like after a fish massage. However it was a wet mess and incompatible with happy ending.
