Oh Dearie me.
Today I woke up from the sound of the postman ringing my door bell and to my surprise it was my teeny tiny Haus Of Gloi order! I was so EXCITED and I opened it immediately. I expected the scrub to be melted due to the extreme hot weather we've been getting and indeed it was. It looked pretty gross to be honest; like melted butter and oil with ground coffee floating around =P. But following the instructions that are clearly outlined on the website in the product description, I popped it in the fridge for 10 minutes and it was just like new!
First I need to talk about the smell. This is the description on the jar,"Steam billows rolling off a vessel of fresh made turkish coffee, marshmallow goo tainted by graham cracker crumbs, toasted hazelnuts and blanketed in black chocolate". Holy moly the description is so accurate! It has such a delectable smell I JUST WANT TO EAT IT.
Secondly the actual scrub. It's honestly fantastic. I was worried that it was going to be too greasy for me considering how oily my skin is and to my surprise it was just perfect. I scrubbed all over my body until the sugar dissolved and after rinsing my skin felt very very oily. HOWEVER after drying off with a towel OMGOOOOSHHH hello supple, smooth, baby bum soft, dewy, moisturized (and all words of that sort) skin. I didn't even want to put any clothes on after! And the smell did linger on my skin after rinsing and gosh did I smell so yummy.
The only small tiny thing that I dislike about this scrub is the fact that it is quite runny. First I thought it was just the hot weather that caused this however when comparing it with my Mad City Soap Moisturizing Scrub's texture after taking it out of the fridge it had a much much more runny consistency. i'll put pictures up later comparing the two just to give you an idea. It's not SUCH a big deal but it does make the scrub quite tricky to handle and it tends to make a bit of a mess. =)
