Review: Cake Beauty Citrus Squeeze Sinfully Smoothing Brown Sugar Body Scrub
Bought this jar of body scrub about 5 years ago and have been using it on and off since then. Interchangeably, I use a loofah - probably more often than this jar of body scrub. However, I do recognize the great results the body scrub gives.
The scent: Smells like lemon and other citrus fruits blended together
Consistency: Has the liquidity of oil. It's mixed with raw sugar that doesn't dissolve with time.
Application: I use this after I've body washed. I grab a palm full of the raw sugar and rub it along my legs and arms to exfoliate and remove the dead skin cells.
Packaging: It didn't come with a box, just the plastic jar.
What it claims: "... this will exfoliate and moisturize leaving your body irresistible with true citrus a-peel..."
Thoughts / Results:
Like what it claims, it does exfoliate well and moisturizes your body. Works better than simply using body wash and a loofah. Though, I suspect some people may not like the slight greasy feeling left behind from this scrub after you quickly rinse through.
As for the packaging, I like that it's in a plastic jar. But I wish there was some sort of more hygienic way to scoop out the sugar. Maybe some sort of a mini measuring cup that measures the average amount a person typically needs to exfoliate their body.
The smell of the scrub is perfect. IMO, it's not overpowering and not an irritating scent. As a matter of fact, it's quite refreshing.
Cost: $32 CAD @Cakebeauty.com (Though I bought it when it was on sale)
