Got my hands on this little cutie from PHB Ethical and let me tell you this scrub (Lavender and Ylang Ylang Sugar Scrub) surprised the heck out of me. Having a sweet scent and very soft to the touch when it’s dry, I wasn’t excepting a tough scrub, but instantly was taken back at how this bar is absolutely one of the hardest and grittiest scrubs I have ever tried and I love it! It’s too rough to use on my face but perfect for my body and feet, just make sure not too apply too much pressure when scrubbing delicate areas of skin.

I picked this product mainly because of the lavender scent, as I’m obsessed with anything lavender. It’s funny because my Mom hates lavender due to the fact that she was making lavender fragranced drawer pillows while she was pregnant with me and the scent of lavender makes her nauseous to this day, but it’s one of my favorites. Still not sure if I’m a fan of the Ylang Ylang scent but either way the combined scent in this scrub dissipates quickly after getting out of the bath. What does linger is the added cocoa butter and plant oils that leave a silky layer of hydration on the skin. I couldn’t tell upon initial inspection what was inside the scrub but when I used it, I realized that they were real flowers, kind of looked like tiny seashells from the outside of the bar.

The simplicity of the packaging appeals to me greatly as you can see their product line has a kinetic layout scheme with different colors representing the various lines. As of right now the only way to get your hot hands on some PHB Ethical in the United States is to buy it off their website. Shipping for this scrub is £4.60 which is $7.10 plus the £4.95 ($7.64) for the Sugar Scrub Bar for a grand total of $14.74. If you check out their website you will see they have a whole range of products, from makeup to skincare to haircare all at a very reasonable price.

I’ve used the Lavender and Ylang Ylang Sugar Scrub a total of three times, as my skin only needs a deep scrub about once a week. The bar is only a third of the way used, so I’m guessing I’ll get a total of nine or ten uses out of a single scrub bar. Not only would it be awesome to use for after sunburn peeling but even better for winter dry skin, which is right around the corner. Still can’t decide if I favor the scrub more or the softness that it leaves, but either way this little scrub is a winner in my book.

PHB Ethical offers Sugar Scrub Bars in the following scents:
Lavender & Ylang Ylang – With calming Lavender & Ylang Ylang oils to soothe skin and senses
Peppermint – With fresh Peppermint to awaken skin and senses
Pink Grapefruit – With refreshing Pink Grapefruit to boost skin and senses
