luna65 Posted April 13, 2010 Share Posted April 13, 2010 I thought I'd start a thread for anyone wanting to squee about the Sugar Scrubs. So far I've only tried the white sugar, I had it scented with Alyicia's Carnival. Danna recommended white sugar unless you're going with a really "robust" scent because the brown sugar is pretty smelly on its' own (much like the cocoa butter for the creme, I'm assuming). Those of you who have used foaming sugar scrubs before from other etailers, this is much like those I've tried: the white sugar provides a nice scrubbiness but not too much. It really all depends on your sensitivity I suppose but it's just sugar, there's no other scrubby bits in there. For me, I even used it on my pits and it didn't hurt. The foaming scrub is nice because you get two things in one: scrub and cleanser. It leaves my skin very soft, I normally try to apply a light layer of my creme but I don't necessarily need it except on the rough patches (elbows and knees). The scrub holds together nicely and you just spread it on, it doesn't clump up and crumble like some scrubs might, and rinses off cleanly. The scent seems to stick a little bit more post-shower than with the Body Bubbles, but it's mainly aromatherapy for me; I always layer with something else while getting dressed. The container was too wide for me to take in the shower but I normally don't do that anyway, I scoop out about two tablespoons worth into a smaller container and take that in the shower. I've been using this about 2-3 times a week although I think it's gentle enough to use everyday. Again, it all depends on your sensitivity and scrubby needs. So if you like to use foaming scrubs you can have that plus your LP fix, and that's a win/win for me! I'm thinking I'll try the brown sugar scented with something like Passion & Desire. if anyone has tried the brown sugar please chime in (especially if their names are Mara and Danna ).
