Bomb Cosmetics Sugar Scrub Review!

I stumbled upon Bomb Cosmetics a while ago and was sucked in by their affordable price and cute packaging! They have a nice selection of body scrubs, shower butter, shower gels, bath salts and those kind of bathroom necessities so I decided to try out a few things.

This is not a collective review about their products in general, just a little showcasing of their Cranberry & Lime Oil Based Body Scrub. I am generally a big fan of sugar scrubs with an Oil base (I have previously reviewed the body scrubs from Rituals that are just that, and they happen to be favorites of mine). Needless to say I got high hopes for this!

But first, can we take a moment to enjoy the adorable packaging? It just looks so cute! The label feel a bit like paper, and I was afraid it would look very worn out after living in a shower for a while, but this picture is taken after this guy have been standing in my shower for months and it still looks just as cute so that’s a bonus (especially when you buy it partly because of how it looks).

The Scrub itself is chunky sugar grans in a oil base. I think the blend is nicely balanced as it is neither to dry or too oily, just a nice consistency that will give you a nice rub and still feel moisturizing.

And it really is moisturizing! I actually don’t feel like I have to use a body lotion or a body butter after using this. It leaves your skin nicely moisturized as it is.

Still it has plenty of scrub to it if you know what I mean. A lot of body scrubs I find to be very waist full because you have to use so much product to get enough scrubbing done. That’s why I usually prefer sugar or salt scrubs since they usually feels like they are actually exfoliating and I found that to be the case with this one too!

I was a bit puzzled about the small red seeds but after reading the ingredient list I figured it must be cranberry seeds. Talking about ingredients, this also has sweet almost oil and sesame seed oil. I sometimes use pure almond oil as a body moisturized and find that it really works for me, so no wonder my skin feels nicely moisturized when using this.

The scent is also so delicious! It actually smell like proper lime. I kind of want to eat it. So be warned, this may leave you hungry!

As you can see I am aaalmost out of it, and I will for sure pick up a new one very soon!

If you are into oil based sugar scrubs I think this can be a nice one to consider.

Rituals Body Scrubs Review!

Want to know about some delicious body scrubs that smells nice, does a wonderful job and does not break the bank? Then Rituals got you covered!

I have been using these body scrubs on a regular basis for around 3 years now and I figured it was about time I wrote a little something about them. It is always fun to share with you a review of products I use and love.

Packaging is really nice and looks luxurious. The jars are pretty big and feels nice and heavy (not strange considered they are filled with oil and sugar). The jar is plastic ,and so is the lid but the metallic finish of it and the nice design of the jar makes it feel and look expensive even though it is plastic.

The price range is just in the middle I would say. 29$ is certainly not the cheapest scrub around, but for 375 g of product in a nice jar I think it is still pretty reasonable, especially considering they work pretty great.

As you can telll, these are not new products, The Himalayan Sea Salt body scrub is almost out. It is so refreshing to use after a heavy exercise or a nice sauna.

I got three different scents here. The Himalaya Scrub is sugar grains in an oily base with a nice calming scent of roses. I love this as a winter scrub because the calming scent is very fitting when it is cold and dark outside.

The Himalaya Sea Salt Scrub smells like eucalyptus and is a proper pick-me-up. Nice to cool down with on warm days. The scrub is made of salt instead of sugar. It is slightly more grainy than the sugar based scrubs.

The Happy Buddah has the most wonderful sweet orange scent. It is quite intense but it is the kind of scent that makes you happy to sniff. I sometimes just open the jar to smell it to be honest! Scent-wise this is the big winner for me, and it makes me crave orange!

Since they are salt and sugar in a nice oil base it means that they are super moisturizing. I can use these and not put on body lotion after a shower and the skin still feels soft and hydrated. The amount of scrubbing grains is also very generous and it gives you a real rub down compare to other similar prices scrubs (The Body Shop I am looking at you displeased).

So if you are into those oil based sugar and salt scrubs I would highly recommend the ones from Rituals. These are staples in my bathroom and I always keep a few of them at hand. Good stuff!
