          • Price

           

          Sultry and sweet, this fragrance melds the classic aroma of vanilla blossoms with notes of pure cane sugar to create a soft and relaxing scent.

          Container Size: 6.5 ounces
          Scrub Type: Sugar scrub
          Ingredients: Sucrose, Glycerin, Aqua, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sorbitol, Propylene Glycol, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Fragrance (Parfum), Sodium Chloride, Phenoxyethanol, Tetrasodium EDTA, Denatonium Benzoate.
          What It Claims: “Our body scrubs are a delicious and rejuvenating treat for every bath. Our scrubs are made from natural cane sugar, known to produce glycolic acid – one of the natural alpha hydroxy acids that exfoliates the skin. Anti-aging technology helps rejuvenate, soften, and brighten the skin.”
          What It Did: Definitely a delicious and rejuvenating treat – I looked forward to using this every day! The scrub gently exfoliated, and I could tell a difference after using it. My skin was softer and smoother after use. I’m not sure about the anti-aging technology, but otherwise this scrub did deliver as promised.
          Comments: I was surprised by the quality of this sugar scrub. Many times I’ve found with prize-inside products, more attention is focused on the prize than the actual product. Not so here – this was a great sugar scrub! Not the best I’ve ever used, but certainly high enough quality to be satisfied with the product and the prize. This scrub was gentle enough for everyday use, which was perfect because you can get to your jewelry prize sooner!

          FUN FACT: Jewelry hidden in JewelScent products range in value from $10-7500!

          Would I repurchase? Yes
          Rating Breakdown:

          • Packaging/Presentation: This sugar scrub was in a round, squat, white plastic container with a gold, screw-top lid. The label on front clearly displayed the company and scent names. The scrub itself was white in color. The bottom label had the ingredients included (which I did not find on the website). The bottom of the jar also had a sticker indicating the size of the jewelry piece inside. The jewelry prize was encased in foil and also protected by a plastic ziplock baggie. The ring had a pretty pink central stone – see pics below. There was a label on the ring that had the ring size on one side and a code on the other. I was able to input the code into the appraiser on the JewelScent Candles website to determine that my ring was appraised at $10.
          • Scent: I was in love with this scent – it smelled more like warm sugar cookies to me, with lots of vanilla added. I wanted to scoop some out and eat it!
          • Scent Strength: The scent was moderately strong.
          • Performance: This was a mild sugar scrub – the crystals were fine and the scrub itself was like a soft dough. It gently scrubbed while cleansing, and it left my skin feeling soft and smooth. I was able to wash it away easily and could still smell the product on my skin after showering. This scrub lasted a long while, too, since a little went a long way. This helped take the sting out of the overall cost. The jewelry was in the very bottom of the container, protected as mentioned above.

          1. I like the jewelry concept but ultimately would probably not wear the jewelry, so the product would have to be very good at this price. Nice to see a less often reviewed product, though: thanks.

          2. Great review! This scrub sounds like it has an interesting concept, but the price is off-putting, regardless of the value of the jewelry included. That’s too bad since it looks like it has the type of consistency that I prefer in a scrub.

            On another note, I hope that there will be more bath and body reviews in the future since those are what I am primarily interested in. Thanks for including them!

          3. The price is really high for a scrub, I agree. The good news about JewelScent is that they have a sale every weekend! If you ever want to try a product, check the site on the weekend for the sale! 🙂

Thank you for such an awesome article dear and from my side I want to say that i am using best moisturizing body scrub for my skin Because this invigorating scrub gently exfoliates and nourishes with a rich blend of certified organic Shea Butter, Honey, Mafura and Baobab that super-boost skin’s hydration. African Rock Fig helps to smooth and restore softness.
