Shopping the stash - Bath & Body Works body scrubs

As you all know I don’t have a excessive stash of makeup so in Skin Scrubs style I’m going to shop my scrubs instead!  There is nothing better to do on this horrible rainy Sunday than go over a few of my Bath & Body Works scrubs that I got last year. Yes, I got that many that I’m still working my way through them but you already knew that didn’t you?

Left to right -

Coconut Lime Breeze Supercharged Body Scrub – I have no idea why this is called ‘supercharged’ but of course I was attracted to it like a moth to a flame! It isn’t very different to their other scrubs in a tube, as an exfoliator it’s does the job but if you want any rough friction it needs to be applied to dry skin. The smell though is devine as are all of the coconut lime combinations that B&BW comes up with. I’m not a big fan of scrubs in tubes but they are more convenient to use when you are in a hurry.

Need a Margarita Citrus Body Scrub – This is part of B&BW True Blue Spa range which is where my favourite coffee scrub ever came from. B&BW are always chopping and changing their stock so I think one is also discontinued now as it’s not on the website anymore. This is also okay as far as scrubs go and I like the oily residue it leaves on your skin so you don’t need moisturiser afterwards but it doesn’t smell anything like a margarita! I would expect a lemony sugar scent and it strangely smells like Sprite or 7 Up. I think this is more useful for targeted areas like hands, elbows and other dry bits rather than an overall body scrub.

Into the Wild Smoothing Body Scrub - This is more like a gentle body polish and I love the look of this, like fine golden sand on a pristine Hawaiian beach. Into the Wild is one of B&BW signature scents and the range also has matching shower gel, body lotion and cream, body spray and perfume. This is what got me addicted to them in the first place as they always have a range of body products in the same scent which in turn makes you buy more hence the vicious circle and love hate relationship with them!

I think I buy B&BW scrubs for the scents rather than expecting them to be super scrubby which is fine by me as they are usually around the $13/£8 mark. Thanks for reading and hope you managed to have a decent Sunday despite the rubbish UK weather!

    Those scents sound really interesting, usually I end up with boring ones. I think I have a Soap and Glory one I need to dig out and trial, doubt its as much of a scent-sation as these ones!

      Well as i’m sure you know I don’t do boring scrubs – the best S&G one I’ve tried is the Breakfast Scrub for texture, scrubbiness and scent! :D

    That coconut lime scrub sounds absolutely lovely, I bet it must smell so tropical and summery in the shower. Have fun shopping for more when you’re in America x

      They are really missing a trick by not having any B&BW stores here either! I think they are spreading out now they finally have on in Canada and they have a few in the Middle East. Go forth and haul lady! xoxo
