Gift Guide for your Girlfriends : SCRUBZ - CLOSED -

Thursday, February 25, 2010


This product would be a perfect gift for your mom, your friend or your cousin.
As part of a woman's beauty regime Exfoliation is one of the key to healthy younger looking skin. It becomes important as you age. Since exfoliation increases cell turnover, the skin appears and feels tighter and more polished. How do you exfoliate? why, by scrubbing of course!
Scrub function by removing old cells to produce a smooth and refreshed skin surface. I like scrubs and have been using scrub in alternate with my all-natural soaps. I've tried salt scrubs before, I've also tried scrubs made from natural buffers such as oatmeal or coffee but one thing I've always curious is what would Sugar Scrub feels like? I've heard about sugar scrubs before but never had the experience to try it. So when Scrubz sent me one of their sugar scrubs I just can't wait to try it.

I'm so happy when I received this package from Scrubz:

Scrubz is a sugar scrub with no preservatives, no color additives, and no alcohol. It's all natural sugar scrub so it's safe enough to use everyday.
Inside the parcel they sent me my choice of Scrubz and they also include a mini jar of their Whipped Body Butter called Butterz. Scrubz body scrub is packed with refined sugar as natural exfoliant which has been known to help refine, tone and tighten skin as well. Other essentials and natural oils that are packed-in with the refined sugar are:

  • Coconut-Supreme oil which helps to keep skin tissue strong and supple and aids in the prevention of wrinkling and sagging. It also has anti-oxidant properties.
  • Olive oil which help prevent dry skin conditions and eczema, and is a mild anti bacterial agent. It also contains natural Vitamin E and other anti-oxidants.
  • Vitamin E oil which help decrease the effects of psoriasis, erythema, and may help in reducing the risk of skin cancer. It also helps reduce scarring from wounds and the appearance of stretchmarks.
  • Canola oil which offer skin barrier-repair and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Jojoba oil which helps unclog pores and lifts grime and embedded impurities. It also helps to control acne.
  • Aloe Vera oil which aids in the healing of wounds and treatment of sunburn. It also used to help relieve arthritis pain, improve blood circulation, reduce scarring, and has anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Grapeseed oil which has mild astringent qualities to help tighten and tone. It also has regenerating and restructuring properties as well.
  • Soybean oil has revitalizing and emollient properties as well as anti-oxidants that helps in preventing premature aging. It also have the properties to give back the flexibility and elasticity of the skin.
  • Shea Butter which helps in moisturizing dry skin, reducing the appearance and condition of eczema, psoriasis, soothing sunburns and rashes, reducing inflammation, helps control acne & other skin blemishes.
  • Essentials and Fragrance oil, either or both are used for scenting. The scent oils all meet or exceed RIFM standards and are of the highest grade and finest available.
Now with all those benefits who wouldn't want to try one? After looking on their many options of scents I finally chose the Chocolate Dreamz. This one is from their Seasonal and Holiday selections.

What I notice immediately is how wonderful the scent is. I love the scent! It's not overwhelming but it's enough to make you want to take a bath immediately ^o^
The scent is more of a sweet chocolate cake and it's so wonderful I declare it my most favorite scent right now :)


What I like most about sugar scrub is it doesn't feel harsh on your skin like salt scrub or coffee scrub but instead it feels very smooth against the skin and it dissolves quickly so there's no need to harshly rub your skin to get the oils out like some of the scrubs I've tried before. I also love that it comes with a little spoon to scoop the sugar scrubs in the jar. Most of the scrubs offered in the market doesn't come with mini spoon or a scoop which makes it a little bit harder for us to scoop it with our wet hands while in the shower, so the mixing scoop is a plus here.

What else do I like about Scrubz? Well, Scrubz is actually a 4 body products in one! Other than as a body scrub it also can be used for facial scrub, as a pre-shave shaving oil and as a moisturizer! You see, when the sugar is washed away, the remaining natural oils are left as a moisturizer. I also tried it as a shaving oil. I used it pre-shave and it does allow me to have a very smooth shave, i have never experienced a smooth shave like that before. Apparently it helps the hair follicle to stand away from the skin surface to allow for a closer shave, and the remaining natural oils that was left after washing the sugar are automatically used as a shaving oil, this is so much better that using a traditional shaving cream.

As for the Citrus Butterz by Scrubs which was also sent to me, it's made from pure shea butter whipped with special blend of natural oils for a silky skin loving cream. I love the texture of the body butter, it sinks right in and doesn't leave a greasy feeling. It also makes my hands feel smooth and the scent lasts for a long time. But since I'm not a fan of Citrus so i don't use this often, but i still carry it everywhere because I like to remove unwanted odor (like after eating crabs or seafood using hands) by just applying it after washing my hands (citrus is known to eliminate odor).

There are also a lot of scent variant to choose from on their website, from woodsy & minty to unscented. The price? Their 2 oz. Oilz retail for $8 while their 4 oz. Scrubz is $9.
