What do you do when one of your favorite products stops being sold at your favorite store? This recently happened when I went to the store to grab another tub of St. Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub (my favorite body scrub) only to find that they had stopped selling it. And there was no way I was going to Rite Aid, where the price is almost twice as high. So instead of paying extra to get what I already knew I really liked, I decided to go out on a limb and grab a bag of For Sanity's Sake Himalayan Salt and Sugar Scrub, since I needed some more lotion bars from the For Sanity's Sake Etsy Shop anyway.
A few days later, when I opened the little bag of scrub for the first time, my nose was treated to the delicious scent of coconut. I'm fairly certain I drooled a little. Even a few weeks later, it's one of my favorite things about the product; The way the soft coconut scent lingers on my skin after use, not too light, not too heavy. I love that. It also hangs around in my bathroom after a shower, but only until the steam dissipates. That's good for those of you who don't particularly like coconut (Me, I love it.).
Even if it didn't have such a drool-worthy smell, I'd still be hooked on it. I was nervous about all the Himalayan Pink Sea Salt irritating my horribly sensitive skin, but truth be told, I think it actually helped calm the irritation instead of causing more! That right there warrants for some loud applause. Add in the fact that my skin feels smooth, moisturized and extra silky after using it and we've got ourselves a winner.
Best of all you only need a little bit (about a tablespoon for my entire body). I did run into one small issue with the baggie, because when my hands are wet, it slips out of my grip. However, I just poured about a quarter of the bag into one of those little travel-sized jars, and now it's not a problem.
Ingredients: sea salt, sugar, coconut oil, Himalayan pink sea salt
