Ulta Smooth Exfoliating Body Scrub Review

I just got back from Day 1 of the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Sale and one of the things I picked up is the Ulta Smooth Exfoliating Body Scrub in Coconut & Almond Milk. This is a Hot Buy and I paid $6 (originally $19.50) so I was excited to get the deal.

What’s to love?

I didn’t even know Ulta made this scrub until today. It was right at the front door as a Hot Buy so I picked one up and it smells amazing, just like dessert. It comes in 4 scents and all of them smell so good.

  • Sea Mist + White Flower – Pamper Luxe
  • Lavender + Berries – Soothe Luxe
  • Verbena + Lemon Grass – Refresh Luxe
  • Coconut +Almond Milk – Nourish Luxe

The formula for this scrub is amazing. I tested it out on my hands and the walnut shells gives just the right about of exfoliation. It also has Shea Butter, Aloe, Green Tea & Vitamins A, C, E and D to smooth. After I was done my hands felt so soft and not greasy at all.

Overall I am so impressed with this scrub and I really want the Lavender +Berries one too so I might just be heading back to Ulta this week while they are on sale.

This product is free of Parabens, Gluten, DEA, Phthalates and it’s Made in the USA.

I also did a video about my Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Picks.

New Bath & Body Works Clay Body Scrub Review

Today I picked up the new Bath & Body Works Clay Body Scrub which comes in four new scents including  Almond & Vanilla, Jasmine & Green Apple, Lavender & Sandalwood and Wildberry and Chamomile.

I have been waiting for Bath & Body Works to release a clay scrub. I am a huge fan of their sugar scrubs and this clay one is amazing. I picked up Almond & Vanilla and Jasmine & Green Apple today.

What’s to love?

The new Bath & Body Works Clay Scrub uses Kaolin clay which I like and volcanic minerals. The formula has a medium consistency (not too thin, not too thick) and feels almost soft and fluffy going on. The first photo shows the product alone, in the second photo I added water and rubbed it in.

There is a bit of grit to the clay but it’s not abrasive which I loved. I felt like I got great exfoliation from it. I was actually blown away by how nice my skin felt after I used it. First you get the exfoliation, then the moisture kicks in. My hands felt like silk when I was done.

The scent of the Almond & Vanilla is a fresh musky/floral mix that’s both sweet and zingy. The Jasmine & Green Apple smells like fresh apples next to jasmine blooms. There is also a fresh citrusy scent mixed in. Lavender & Sandalwood is very soft and sleepy musky lavender. The Wildberry and Chamomile was my least favorite of the four. It’s nice but a little too floral for me.

Overall I am super impressed and thrilled that I now have a quality clay scrub for the shower. I hope they continue this line.

Price $16.50 (but don’t forget the Bath & Body Works sales and coupons).

New Bath & Body Works Almond & Vanilla Scent Review

I am so excited about the New Bath & Body Works Almond & Vanilla Scent. I just got a great haul and I want to share what I got today.

Bath & Body Works has four new scents including Almond & Vanilla, Jasmine & Green Apple, Lavender & Sandalwood and Wildberry and Chamomile.

The new packaging is cute and simple with mauve and brown almonds drawn on a neutral background. The Almond & Vanilla products have natural almond oil in them too.

 

What’s to love?

If you love almond (like me) this could be your new favorite scent. I am crazy about this one. The top notes are Juicy Orange, Fresh Lemon, Pink Pepper , Hazelnut. It is a sweet scent with a musky zing. To me it also smells incredible fresh.

I picked up four of the six products in Almond & Vanilla including…

Almond & Vanilla Bath Fizzy – These white bath fizzies look really nice. They are about the size of a hockey puck and pretty compact. I’m excited to try one. Price: $7.50

Almond & Vanilla Whipped Body Butter – This new whipped body butter smells amazing and is so soft and fluffy. It is a light beige color (not white) and has Shea butter, coconut oil and vitamins B, C & E. It does not feel greasy or oily to me and it absorbed quickly into my skin. Price: $15.50

Almond & Vanilla Clay Body Scrub – I think this is my new favorite Bath & Body Works product, here’s a full review on my blog. Price: $15.50

Almond & Vanilla Body Cream – This is the Bath & Body Works Signature Body Cream and the new scent makes it even better. It has natural almond oil, Shea butter, aloe and cocoa butter. I love using this on my legs after shaving. Price: $13.00

They also have Shower Gel and Fine Fragrance Mist in Almond Vanilla.
