I’m actually embarrassed to tell you that I never took care of the skin on my body until about 8 years ago. I’d seen stores in the mall that carried lotions, potions, scrubs etc but I never fell under their spell. That’s all changed now and I’m as wrapped up in bath and body products as my friends who’ve been raving for years. What I want though is a fragrance that I’m excited to use which is usually something in the citrus realm.
You might have heard of SIMPLE SUGARS since they have so many amazing products that I see at Beauty Brands. I received an exclusive fragrance courtesy of Beauty Brands and I am totally a new person. The exclusive scent is Vanilla Grapefruit and it’s like a slice of paradise. Imagine yourself on the island of Maui every time you step into the shower with Simple Sugars Vanilla Grapefruit Body Scrub and you’ll know what I mean.
What’s especially fun is that the owner, Lani Lazzari, is just barely out of her teens. She built her business up from the time she was 11 years old and at 18 she was featured on Shark Tank. I love Shark Tank and I love seeing women make it on the show. She was scooped up by Mark Cuban and her business became a success. She keeps adding new items to her line and now you can find Body Scrubs, Facial Scrubs, Foot Scrubs plus she’s created a men’s line. You can see Lani’s experience in this you tube video.
Beauty Brands carries 18 of her products at this time and is the only one to sell the Vanilla Grapefruit scent. This body scrub has to be experienced to know why I want to wake up for my shower each day.
Simple Sugars is an all natural brand that is made by hand. The ingredients are good enough to eat! They include pure cane sugar, organic soybean oil, grapeseed oil, cherry kernel oil, apricot kernel oil and organic grapefruit zest. When you open the jar and smell the deliciousness you just won’t believe it.
Now to make it even more exciting for me is that you don’t really need a moisturizer or body lotion after using this. My skin is so well hydrated that it’s totally optional if I decide to use one. I’m not oily, I’m just soft and silky.
Upon opening my jar I noticed a separation of products with the abundant amount of pure can sugar mounding up over the organic oils. Simple Sugars comes with a perfect size plastic spoon so you can mix these up and then scoop out enough for your legs, arms, back, feet, or wherever you can reach. Add some water and smooth this over your body and watch it melt away leaving behind perfection.
Do I sound like a commercial? I think I got a little carried away with my description but when I get into the shower I’m also carried away. I’ve started using it right away since I don’t want to run out of my hot water and have to miss this moisturizing step.
Vanilla Grapefruit can be found for $15 for 5 oz or $22 for 8 oz. If this deliciously sweet light grapefruit scent doesn’t grab you then how about a strawberry or a coconut or even a little almond? Grab one for yourself and one or more for a great graduation gift. I’d pair it with a beach towel or a university towel and know I’d be giving something special.
Have you heard of Simple Sugars? Have I really been out of the loop before this discovery? — Marcia
