After reading so many great reviews of this product I couldn’t help but buy it. Though I have to say that I buy all those products after reading the rave reviews of them just to satisfy my skeptical attitude rather than for getting the WOW-effect. But as for this scrub I can say for sure: I’ll keep buying it over and over again, no matter what price it’ll cost.


Yes, taste, you read it right. Each time washing this scrub off my face I have to tightly press my lips together as it tastes like something bitter.

Of course I wouldn't have never tried to taste it on purpose.

The product smells of chocolate. But this isn’t that dark or milky chocolate smell. For me it smells more like chocolate sweets with cream and cocoa notes. It’s difficult for me to describe the smell more accurately. The aroma is wonderful and I guess many people will like it. It lingers on my body and I like it on my body more than just in a jar.


The consistency of the product is pleasant to the touch, it’s like honey and butter mixed together with crushed walnut.

Massage it into your wet skin. Once the product touches my wet skin, it starts to warm up it. I massage it into the skin for a few minutes, leave on for some time more and then rinse off.


Sucralose (sugar), carthamus tinctorious (safflower) seed oil, polysorbate 20, silica dimethyl silylate, aleurites moluccana (kukui nut) oil, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter) oil, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), juglans regia (walnut) shell powder, *aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, *honey extract, *prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) fruit extract, *macadamia ternifolia (macadamia) seed extract, *theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, fragrance (includes essential oils).


  • the product cleanses my skin

  • it makes all the dead skin cells disappear

  • deprives from blackheads and prevents the new ones appearing

  • makes my pores visually smaller

  • polishes skin’s surface

  • makes complexion better

  • gives natural and beautiful flush

  • feels very comfortable on my skin

The effect is visible even after the first use. And if you use it regularly then everybody will see the result as well! The look of the skin improves a lot.

One more factor I want to draw your attention to is that the blackheads decrease on my nose and cheeks. So many products are lying when they promise us the blackheads will disappear, making their buyers very upset with the result. As for me, no one had promised this effect from this scrub hence I didn’t even expect it.

A little digression.

I got my parcel from iHerb delivered the very day I was flying on holiday. I didn’t wait long and tested the new product at once. And I fell for this scrub. A few hours later I came into my bathroom and unexpectedly scrubbed my face again. And I don’t actually know why, maybe because of its gorgeous smell, or maybe because of my maximalism, but all in all, I scrubbed my face a second time. This very day, for the third time I used it on my whole body (since I had a plane trip in a few hours, I decided to treat myself and do some procedures before the expected sunbathing). To cut a long story short, I used the product for the third time (including my face again) and I almost fell asleep in the bathroom, as the smell was astonishing.

When I finally got out of the bathtub I looked at my face and saw that there were NO blackheads on my face. And the pores were way smaller.


  • cleanses well

  • peels the skin

  • relaxes

  • creates the atmosphere of comfort and relaxation

  • improves my mood

  • makes me feel more confident

And I’m not joking about the confidence. This is the absolutely true description of all the feelings that I have using this sugar scrub. I feel so relaxed and blissed like after having a very expensive luxurious SPA-treatment. I get a lot of delight using this scrub.

SIZE: 260g

PRICE: $11.16

I ordered it on and it’s absolutely up to you to decide whether it’s expensive or not. In my opinion the price corresponds with the quality.
