Lush Sugar Scrub Review

I bought the Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes kit from Lush, so I've decided to review some of the products in the kit. Tonight I'm reviewing the Sugar Scrub.

Description- It's basically a half sphere of sugar and it's meant to be a body scrub. I got a mini version of it in the kit, so it's about half the size of the original.

My thoughts-Honestly, you can't use it whole. It is too harsh for you to just wet your body and rub it on yourself. I found the best way to use it was to crumble/break it up and then rub the sugar over me. Nonetheless, it seemed too messy and prone to be dropped on the shower floor.

Cost- 1/5
Effectiveness- 5/5
Packaging- subjective as it has none

The smell was nice
Packaging free, it's just a giant hunk of sugar

A bit messy and melty, you definitely cannot keep this in the stream of the water, the main ingredient is sugar and that'll just melt off
Too effective as it hurt when I was using it. First try was good, after that was worse.

Cost- The size of the product was about half size so it'd be about 2.47 dollars. To me, not worth it because it was harsh and I believe Lush intends for this to be a one-off item.

Not worth it personally, I'd much rather have a more moisturizing scrub like my Haus of Gloi sugar cremes.

Haus of Gloi Scents Review

I purchased 3 samples of scrubs from Haus of Gloi based off of a review I read on Gothique

Background- They are a body products company that happens to be vegan, I'm not particularly concerned with products being vegan but I enjoyed it nonetheless. It is owned by Britton and Max.

Scrub Samples that I purchased- Satyr, Lavender Sugar, and Madcap Garden

Soap Samples I received- Moon Dog, Satyr, and Glogg

I had originally asked for a sample of Elevenses soap, but Britton contacted me by mail telling me that they didn't have any fully cured soap samples so instead she included 3 other ones. I really appreciated that, most people would just give other samples without saying anything but I liked that she contacted me to tell me that.

My opinion on the scents-

Scrubs- 5/5
Satyr- Very much orange, although a lot sweeter and not as citrus-y. It smelled very nice, accurate to the description and also my favorite out of the three.
Lavender sugar-I think this smells like straight up lavender, I didn't really detect any sort of sugaryness.
Madcap Garden- I ordered this one because Elevenses sample scrub was out of stock (I was very smart, it was relisted the next day, so much for patience :P) This does smell like tea and peppermint, tea first and then a hit of peppermint in the background. Very accurate to the scent description too.

Moon Dog-I think it does smell a bit coconutty, this scent was one of the most difficult to describe, however it's not my cup of tea because I'm not fond of the scent of coconut. I think those who do will like this though!
Satyr-It generally smelled the same as the scrub, but I thought the orange in it was a bit more subdued in the soap.
Glogg-This is the holiday special soap, I thought this kind of smelled a bit cherry and cinnamon-y, not my cup of tea because I don't like fruit but, I've heard lots of other people liking it

Packaging- 5/5

I really like the mini pots, they seem extremely sturdy and I've heard that the labels are waterproof. The box also included a note thanking me to the order. I love the personal touch with this company :)

Opinion- 5/5
I like them, they aren't so scrubby that it hurts my skin or feels excessively coarse, the sugar melts as I keep scrubbing but not too quickly. I didn't like all the scents, but I do like the variety, plus scents are subjective anyways so I don't fault the company for this!

Cost- 5/5
The samples were 2 dollars each and I'm always fond of samples for body products :)
