Review: Need A Margarita?


I'm currently using this body scrub from Bath and Body Works from their True Blue Spa line. And let me tell you how much I LOVE this scrub!! Not only does it smell like a MARGARITA but it leaves your skin feeling so smooth and moisturized.

I think the citrus smell of this body scrub is perfect for the Spring and Summer season just because it really smells like you're on a vacation! In a way, you don't even need to put on lotion after you take a shower (even though I still do) because it's so moisturizing.

I only use a nickel size amount for my arms, legs and decollete area. Once all the sugar has dissolved I leave it on my body for a minute or two to allow the oils to seep into my skin. Once you rinse it off, you'll be amazed how soft and supple your skin feels.

DESCRIPTION: This tropical citrus scrub is the vacation your skin needs from locking and feeling landlocked. Sugar exfoliates to sweeten your spa experience balanced with just a little salt (the way you like it), while exotic oils moisturize and transport you to the tropical island of your choice every time you shower or bathe.

AVAILABLE AT: Bath & Body Works in store. I can't seem to find this product on their website.

PROS:
Skin feels smooth and moisturized in the shower and long after you rinse it off
Scent is amazing if you love citrusy/lemony/margarita smells lol
Thick sugar crystals doesn't make it harsh on your skin
Safe for people with sensitive skin
Can last you a long time since a little goes a long way

CONS:
Sugar dissolves too fast in my opinion which is why I gave 4.5/5 as far as meeting my expectations. But in a way it helps prevent you from over exfoliating
May not be easily available for people who may consider purchasing
If you're looking for a sweet smelling body scrub, this product is not for you

WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT? Yes
