It only took me oh about nine months after I was introduced to them to finally post a review. Most assuredly, I can blame Alyson/The Gloss Menagerie for introducing me to these BonBliss body scrubs because she instagrammed a picture of a sweets shoppe-style selection of individually wrapped chocolate-style body truffles at ISSE Long Beach.
I didn't end up purchasing anything until June when I went to PHAMExpo to pick up a tin of their Scrub-2-Go, a travel-friendly tin of their body scrubs. I purchased a tin of the Scrub-2-Go in the Mango Sorbet scent and the owner Elissa was nice enough to give me an extra Body Truffle (also in Mango Sorbet, if you've ever met me in person you'd know how obsessed I am with mango-scented anything)
These salt and sugar scrubs are amazingly moisturizing and exfoliating on the hands and body. After you use the scrub, you'll find your hands and body smooth and moisturized with a bit of cocoa and shea butter residue left over. I hate to say residue because it sounds like it has a negative connotation but it makes you feel like you just put on a nice coat of lotion and you can rub it in for further moisturization.
The Scrub-2-Go tin retails for $10.95 for 1.2 oz/34 grams of product. Each cube weighs about 2 grams and so there's about seventeen cubes in each tin. I had exactly seventeen cubes in my tin. These are a brilliant hand scrub, especially before doing a manicure on yourself or as a foot scrub if you want to target dry heels.
The Body Truffle retails for $3.75 for 1.0 oz/28 grams of product. As you can tell, the Body Truffle is a better value but whereas the Scrub-2-Go is marketed as a hand scrub, the Body Truffle is marketed as the name says, to use as an all over body scrub. I was able to get two full body showers out of the Body Truffle so you don't have to use it all at once.
Be sure to keep the Body Truffle out of the direct stream of water if you're using it in the shower.
How to use:
- Unwrap either a Scrub-2-Go cube or the Body Truffle. The Body Truffles are wrapped in parchment or wax paper and then in the foil. You can use the whole Scrub-2-Go cube at once but I preferred breaking off portions of the Body Truffle, 1/2 is enough for one shower.
- Then wet your hands or body, gentle crumble and rub the scrub where you need it. If you find it too abrasive, add a bit of water and rub until the salt and sugar is dissolved. Be careful about slipping in the shower!
- Rinse yourself clean.
- When drying off, pat yourself dry to ensure you don't rub off the moisturizing shea butter. Your hands should feel nice, smooth, and moisturized for ages.
The scent Mango Sorbet is a deliciously sweet and fruity mango scent. I found that it lasted at least three hours on my skin after washing.
Shipping is $6.95 flat rate and free on orders over $75. There are some local stores that stock BonBliss scrubs so feel free to check out their Facebook page for the list of locations.
Would I purchase more? Hell yes I would! They're actually exhibiting at Be Well Expo which I'm attending this Saturday so I might just pick up another tin of Mango Sorbet. If you can get your hands on them, I would definitely recommend picking up a tin!
