Spa Therapy's Oil Free Scrubs

You might be wondering... Where have you girls been as of late? Well, I can tell you we haven't forgotten about our love for handmade Bath & Beauty products, but life has a way of getting in the way of blogging!

With summer almost officially here (Solstice is this Sunday), and the summer heat having been around for quite a while, at least over here, I thought it would be nice to share with you one of my latest B&B purchases and crush: Spa Therapy's Oil Free Scrub!

I have tried a few scrubs and body polishes, and so far, all have been nice and not too harsh, I want to remove dead cells, not the ones that are in good condition, thank you very much!

When I saw Jussara's new line, I decided to give it a try, since I was almost all out of body scrubs, and I was intrigued not only by the fact that it was oil free, but also by the look of the scrub's texture. Going with the summer's theme, I decided to order the Frozen Margarita scented one!

The first thing I really like about this scrub, without even opening it, is the jar, wide and regular, easy to access, and you won't have to fight to access the last bits of the scrub on borders or angles, so that's a score for me.

The scent is fresh and lime-y, perfect for refreshing you in the shower, and the texture is very different from the regular scrubs, and more like a body polish, since it's got a finer grain texture, almost like a whipped soap, consistent but almost fluffy!

The best about this consistency is that it spreads very easily on the skin and foams very well, creating a nice scrub-y but lather-y feel! And even better, a lil does go a long way!

All in all, a very recommended product, and if Margaritas are not your thing, you also have Summer Smoothie and Turkish Coffee (for those who need the coffee to wake up in the shower!).

I know I don't think of going back to the regular scrubs any time soon!

The coffee one looks FABULOUS! I believe I'm a bit overdue for a Spa Therapy shopping spree...I will have to include that on the list. =D

Coffee scented?!! That is not a good thing for a coffee addict! Will definitely check out the shop. Thanks so much for telling us about her.
