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.

 

St. Patrick’s Day Bath & Body Works Haul

Happy St. Patrick’s Day all! I decided to go to Bath & Body Works today for some “green” products and I got a pretty nice haul.

I’ll be reviewing these new products over the next few weeks and I have to say that the Fiji Pineapple Palm and the Mentha Soap are two of my favorites. I also created a “Haul” video to show off my “green” loot. I hope everyone has a safe and fun St. Patrick’s Day. Enjoy!

 

Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub Review

Today I got to Ulta and stocked up on one of my favorite sugar scrubs with Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrubs in Original Shea and Pomegranate Acai.

I’ve been using Tree Hut for about 5 years now and love their products which are Made in the USA and not tested on animals. They do however contain fragrance, but it’s not stated whether it’s natural or not. I think both products smell really good.

What I love about Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub in Original Shea.

I love using the Tree Hut Sugar Scrubs after being at the beach. These scrubs are perfect for removing sun screen and beach grime (which I hate). The Original Shea has an awesome buttery almond scent with a hint of caramel. It also contains macadamia nut oil. While the product feels super gritty to the touch it melts quickly upon application and leaves your skin super soft and refreshed.

What I love about Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub in Pomegranate Acai.

I love that the Pomegranate Acai version has a much lighter floral scent but it’s in no way overpowering or chemically. It smells super sweet and luscious. This white formula has tiny purple flecks in it. I’m not sure if they are seeds or beads.

Here are both scrubs on my arms Pomegranate Acai and then Original Shea.

I use the Tree Hut scrubs a few times per week in the Summer and my skin really glows.
