Today I am going to be reviewing the SimplyScrub 100% natural organic body scrubs that were sent to me. I was sent two full-sized scrubs in a rose scent and a soursop scent. I’ve never used a scrub with either scent and was super excited to try it out and share my experience with y’all because if you’re an avid body scrub user like I am, new scrubs and scents are exciting! Like I said before, I use body scrubs religiously and I’ve tried my fair share of sugar and salt scrubs. So when I learned of a body scrub that was made of something else other than sugar or salt, I knew I just had to try it.
The rose body scrub was the one that I was most excited for, because who hasn’t dreamed of taking a romantic bubble bath with rose petals in it while sipping on champagne? I definitely have and I imagined that using a rose body scrub would give my body a similar fragrant outcome, except I wouldn’t need to do all the soaking. Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE taking a bath, but I don’t have time to take a bath everyday, as much as I would like to. I usually take a shower, which takes a fraction of the time a bath does.
The SimplyScrub Rose Scrub is $16 for 3.5 oz. It is made from grinding up real roses and mixing it with essential oils. When you look at the scrub, you can actually tell what’s in it. It’s not like the typical scrub which usually has a creamy or gooey consistency that makes you question what chemicals or hidden ingredients are used to make it. That’s what I love about this scrub – it really is 100% natural and it does a fantastic job of making my skin smell wonderfully. It is a gentler exfoliant than the typical sugar or salt scrub, but it does still work. It works best after a bath, because the soaking will help loosen the outer layer of the skin better than a shower would.
The only down side about this scrub is that it’s not grinded up enough. Some rose pieces are too big and for those who have a shower/bath drain that has smaller holes, this will be a problem for. It will block up the drain, which you’ll have to clear out afterwards. Luckily, this wasn’t the case for me, but I know that if I had to clear out the drain every time I used this scrub, it would deter me from using it often.
Before this, I actually didn’t know what soursop was. I looked it up and found out that it is a “super-fruit”. It supposedly has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits and the possibility of fighting cancer and stopping infections. Again, I’ve never even heard of this fruit before, much less see or try it in person, so I don’t know if it actually does any of that. But I will say that as a body scrub it works fantastic!
The SimplyScrub Soursop Scrub is $13 for 3.5 oz. It is made of the soursop leaves, mint leaves, a mix of tea tree oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil and grapeseed oil, green tea, deep sea mineral salt and brown sugar. Like the rose scrub, you can see the pieces of ground of leaves in the scrub, but this time it is more finely grinded – yay! It has the perfect amount of texture that allows for optimal exfoliation. It smells mostly of the tea tree oil, which I really like. I had a histamine reaction to the laser hair removal that I got on my legs a few weeks ago and this scrub really helped with the itching and inflammation. This scrub is my favorite – I’ve already used up the whole scrub!
I was also sent sample sizes of their coffee scrub and chocolate scrub. I’m really curious about coffee body scrubs. It kind of blew up on social media a little while ago. Coffee scrubs claim to temporarily reduce cellulite. The sample size was pretty small, so I didn’t get to extensively try it, but the scent is very refreshing and would be perfect for morning time! I might have to just get the full size and try it out more thoroughly. I do have a little bit of cellulite on my thighs so I wonder if it will really get rid of it. Lastly is the chocolate scrub! This is another new thing to me. Who would’ve thought there was such a thing as rubbing chocolate on yourself for exfoliation!? I’m sure chocolate lovers would go crazy for this, but I didn’t actually try this sample because the description on the SimplyScrub label says to avoid sensitive and irritated skin. I have sensitive skin and was also experiencing a histamine reaction, so it wasn’t a good idea to use this. If you’ve used a chocolate body scrub before, let me know what your experience was in the comments below!
