Being a New England girl, when the winter weather comes around I am all about every possible product to keep my skin from drying up. Between the frigid temperatures and blistering wind, what’s a girl to do? Well I just ordered some sugar scrubs from Simple Sugars and I am completely smitten!
Simple Sugars is a company that was featured on Shark Tank in 2013 and has grown immensely since then. You can read the full story here. What I love most about their products is that they are completely natural, designed by founder Lani Lazzari to be used by people with sensitive skin without irritation. Music to my ears! I am a lifelong sufferer of eczema and know all too well what can happen when you use irritating products on your skin.
In the spirit of the holidays, I ordered a Gingerbread sugar scrub to test out. For my male readers – don’t worry, I also ordered a facial scrub from their new Smooth for Men line for Mike to try!
My first reaction to this shipment was what great packaging they provide. Despite coming in a regular brown box, upon opening the box I was greeted with pretty-in-pink tissue and paper confetti. I love this little added touch that makes the product feel homemade and adorable. Included with the scrubs are teeny tiny little spoons – one for each scrub so that you can mix it up and scoop out just enough. They say that the scrub contents can sometimes separate because they are made with essential oils. Nothing a few quick swirls around the jar won’t fix.
Once you remove the protective seal, the smell of delicious freshly baked gingerbread just oozes from the jar. I wanted to eat the scrub. I mean really, it smelled that good. The scrub itself feels amazing on your hands and helps to eliminate any dry rough patches that you might have. I would definitely recommend the body scrubs to anyone for a special Christmas gift at a very low cost. There are more holiday themed scrubs, including candy cane and cranberry options to select from. They are even running “12 Days of Smoothness” discount days throughout the month for the holidays, like this $10 off their head to toe sampler pack.
Mike tested out the Smooth for Men facial scrub. While there were no holiday-specific options for the facial scrubs, this would still make a great gift for the guy in your life that loves to take care of his skin. We ordered the green tea scrub with added Emu Oil which is supposed to boost the scrub with healing agents. Mike personally loved this scrub, claiming he assumed this is what it felt like to go to the spa and have your face pampered.
What is your favorite stocking stuffer this year?
