I haven’t had the best luck with scrubs in the past. They usually are way too harsh on my skin, to the point where it hurts! So I just opt not to use them. However, upon waking up in the middle of the night and itching from being so dry, I thought maybe it was time to give them one more go. This is where Bidwell Botanicals Shea Butter Sugar Scrub came into play and where I fell head over heels in love.
I tried both the Bidwell Botanicals Gingerbread Latte Sugar Scrub and the Spiced Pumpkin. Both were truly amazing. They were gentle on my skin, but I could still feel they were working. I also tried a scrub once that left my shower all slippery, which is a terrifying thing. I was grateful neither of these scrubs did so!
The true test of Bidwell Botanicals was how my skin felt when I got out of the shower. My elbows have never been so soft! And I haven’t woken myself up due to scratching since I’ve used either scrub! LOVE!
I have been using them twice a week (one Gingerbread, one Pumpkin Pie) because they smell so delicious that I can’t choose just one! Perhaps as it gets colder here I may use them more. Even my husband tried them and was impressed!
I can’t recommend Bidwell Botanicals enough.
Have you tried a sugar scrub? Did you have good results?
