From my beach vacation hangover, I was semi-tanned ( apparently, I need another beach trip. Boracay perhaps? Gods of fate, please be in my favor ! ), and I needed a good body scrub for a post-vacation scrub-off of dead skin cells with the hopes of smoother and softer skin. God, I’ve been sunbathing that I just wanted my dead skin cells gone (but still, retaining my almost tan ! haha! )!
I’ve been wanting to try the Coastalscents Spa Excel Sugar Butter Scrub that was sent to me for review but I was feeling strange for the past few weeks that I couldn’t get to use body scrub and just stick with body washes for my bath experience. Well, the moment I opened my sample jar of this ( I got this in Coconut Melon ), it smelled pleasantly coconut-y. I closed my eyes and it immediately took me back to the beach. Oh-kay, here we go, I’m bringing this jar with me to the bathroom!
Well, I must just say that I did not smell so much melon in this scrub, but the coconut scent was the dominant one here. I scrubbed gently for a few seconds, applied my usual body wash, then rinsed off. When I got out of the shower, I just knew that the coconut scent just lingered pleasantly on me. Take note that this isn’t the usual overpowering, strong coconut scent that just makes you cringe ( I’d know, because I don’t like the usual coconut scent moreso virgin coconut oil! eeyikes! ). The scent of this scrub makes it tolerable in my part to use a coconut-scented product.
Result? My skin was left soft, not so scaly anymore ( scrubbed away, yay! ), and for the first few hours of the day, someone in the office would tell me, “you smell like coconut!”. I swear, the scent lingers, and I love it!
