Shower goodies so yummy, you’ll be tempted to eat them.
As a Midwesterner I’ve gotten used to the cold blustery climates. I’ve honed my skills of winter driving, learned how to layer clothes to buffer against the chill and most importantly, gathered an arsenal of moisturizers and skin treatments to combat the dry seasonal weather. But even with the best moisturizer I’ve found my skin could still use a little help, which is why the body scrub has become an essential mix in my skincare regime.
Thankfully, there’s KleanSpa, a company providing body scrubs and polishes that will not only delight your senses but make your skin feel and look beautiful. KleanSpa’s founder and creator, Jennifer Hardaway’s love of fragrances, as well as bath and body products, resulted in her delicious KleanSpa line of scrubs, cleansers, moisturizers and more.
Looking to create lush and natural products at a reasonable price, KleanSpa uses unrefined cane sugars mixed with nourishing ingredients like almond and coconut oils, shea butters and essential fragrance oils in their luscious body scrubs and polishes. Not only do these jars of joy moisturize and exfoliate the skin, but the line boasts an array of delicious scents and fragrances. Seriously, these smell so good that they should be called “flavors” instead of fragrances.
I received two jars of KleanSpa scrubs from their ever evolving line of scents and formulas. First up, the Smooth-EZ Body Polish in Fig n’ Fern (5.54 oz $13.50), a whipped concoction of sugar, shea butter and coconut oil. This scrub had a lush, fruity scent with a slight hint of vanilla – all in all so delightful that it almost distracted me from the fabulous job it was doing of smoothing and moisturizing my skin.
The handmade formula with cane sugar was abrasive enough to work on the rougher parts of my body like elbows and feet, but also gentle enough to be used on the rest of my body. Plus after the sugar dissolved, the butter and oils kept working their moisturizing magic and I was left with ultra smooth skin.
I also tried the Sugar Body Polish in Toasted Coconut (9.2 oz $23.00), a more oil based scrub that also contains bits of coconut. This was my favorite of the two as it has a heavenly, ambrosial scent of warm nutty coconut that left my mouth watering, while my skin felt silky and supple.
The Sugar Polish has the same great exfoliating action of the Smooth-EZ with the added bonus of extra oil to provide that oomph of moisture that thankfully left my skin soft but not overly greasy. Oh and a handy tip from the KleanSpa site: after washing off the sugar, use the remaining oil as a shaving base for legs. This worked really well and gave me a nice close shave. And as I’ve said before, anything that can multitask gets bonus points with me.
• Amazing fragrances
• Great exfoliating action
• Paraben Free
• Limited availability in stores- but that’s why there’s online shopping!
The wht team received an sampling of KleanSpa Sugar Body Polishes in scents like Thai Lemongrass, Pink Grapefruit-Vanilla, and Fresh Rain, as well as Smooth-EZ Body Polishes in Tiare Blossom, Cecile, and Lavendar Cream. And if my experience is any indication, I can only imagine how good the rest of these scrubs smell! Make sure to check the comments for their thoughts.
For those looking to add some spa like quality to their daily shower, I highly recommend the affordable line of luscious scrubs and polishes from KleanSpa – just try not to lick the jars!
