I am forever running out of body scrubs as I use them so regularly! I'm currently using the Palmers Cocoa Body Scrub which basically smells like chocolate *let the drooling commence* but I'm always on the hunt for new ones to try. So I was delighted to be sent a body scrub from the brand Sniffy Wiffy, and presently hopped in the bath to try it out.
|*Sniffy Wiffy Vanilla Body Scrub*|
I absolutely love the ethos behind this brand! They are a small family-run company who are dedicated to encouraging ladies & gents to self-check for early signs of breast & testicular cancer. They do this by using clever labels showing how to perform a self-examination as a little reminder when using their products. They make the products themselves and donate money to charity from every purchase!
This tub is huge, so you get a whole load of product for your buck! Even though they don't use flashy packaging, I don't think this matters as if they did, it would take away from the message they're trying to put across. Of course, I love the self-examination label- its such a great and original idea! Its very detailed but easy to follow, making the examination a doddle. Unfortunately, I have found that the container does leak a bit. There was a slight discolouration in the box I received it in, but I only noticed it later on. I can't work out just yet whether the container is split or if it's coming from the lid, but at the moment I keep it in pot in my bathroom to catch the leak.
This is a really interesting product. I chose the Vanilla fragrance (they had such a big selection to choose from so it took me a while to decide), and when I opened the container the fragrance was almost overpowering! But I think that's because it was freshly made, and once applied to the skin it calmed down to a lovely sweet smell. The product had separated when I opened it so you have to stir it up a bit to mix it in. The consistency reminds me of when you make your own body scrubs using sugar, so a little goes a long way to avoid it being too harsh on the skin. This scrub is very moisturising, leaving the residue on the skin after washing the scrub off, and it sinks in quite quickly. I still used a body lotion afterwards to give that extra moisture boost, and my skin felt so silky smooth afterwards! I think this would be best used as a luxurious evening treat more than a daily scrub as the residue might put some off if they want to jump out the shower and go.
Will you be trying any Sniffy Wiffy products?
