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.
SMELL AND TASTE:
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.

USE ON MY FACE:
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.
THE USE ON MY BODY:
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.
I ordered it on iHerb.com and it’s absolutely up to you to decide whether it’s expensive or not. In my opinion the price corresponds with the quality.
