Lemony goodness bath tonight that included:
- Lemon sugar bath cubes from Fresh
- Sweet Lemon shower gel from The Body Shop
- Lemongrass sugar soap scrub cube from eBay seller evanest
Tonight I wanted to write about my experience w/the sugar soap scrub I used. When I initially saw the listing I was intrigued by the scents that were listed & the fact it was listed as a sugar "soap." I have noticed a trend w/a lot of people who are making bath products just doing sugar scrub cubes but these seemed more interesting & at a fair price so I purchased them. You get 24 for $15 & you can pick the scents so I picked 3 of each of these scents: Peppermint; Lemongrass; Raspberry; Chocolate Coffee; Fresh Bamboo; Anise; Red Wine; Mango.
I got the package today & I could smell them through the envelope & I got excited! They each smell great individually & I even had Chris sniffing them. When I initially took the one cube from its cellophane wrapping it felt rather oily. Upon using it (I used it just like a piece of soap) the sugar was very fine granulation & there is very little to none of lather. This is not a bad thing! I could feel the oils on my skin &, now that I have been out of the bath for a bit, I smell wonderful & my skin is very soft! These will last also. I'm sure I will be using this for a few baths before it completely dissolves. It also stuck well together, not dissolving quickly or crumbling. Depending on your preference, you could mush it to make it more like a scrub ( they do have a soft consistency to them) but the way I was using it worked great for me. I can't wait to use the other ones!
These are made with a soap base, shea butter, sugar, sweet almond oil, & fragrance oils. She also sells soaps, which I was tempted to get, but after recently going through my soap stash, I really need to use more up. Maybe later.
Now I am going to go back a bit & just post my stashes I got from The Body Shop and also Bath & Body Works. I just missed a 2 for $20 on B&BW's large candles sale. I'm kind of proud because I have so many tarts, samps, & candles already but some of their new scents are really good! Anyhoo, this is what I ended up getting.
