Nyassa Belgian Chocolate Sugar scrub
Today, I will review a product which isn’t new to those who subscribed for the January2013 Vellvette Box. This product was the Mardi Motives palette for that month, I mean just like in the April box Mardi Gras palette was there in every box, same was the case with this body scrub except for the fact that it wasn’t a treat for most of us like the palette has proved to be.
Review was pending as I haven’t used it until last week. So, I am all set to review it but not as excited you will know why!
Price: 950 for 200 g This is the sample product That I am reviewing here.
About the Product: Chocolate, especially Belgian chocolate is a great antioxidant. Belgian chocolate soap which as rich as the actual chocolate. It smells like chocolate! Full of Luscious Oils to pamper your skin! Belgian Chocolate has skin softening properties, probably as it contains cocoa butter. Naturally Pampering Ingredients: Soap Base, Essential oil/Fragrance and Colour Best before 12 months from manufacture/100% Vegetarian
How to use: On slightly damp skin, rub scoopfuls of the scrub in gentle circles - massaging the skin as you go. Shower off for glistening and bright skin. Complete the luxury experience with a rich body butter.
Ingredients: on the pack:
My Experience: Like everyone who subscribed for the January vellvette box, I too got this product. Earlier Iliked the Lush Sugar scrub that they have send. It was very good to when I saw this I was like okay, I will use this. But then, saw some reviews that it isn’t that great and user friendly which made me forget about this scrub and it kept lying in the cupboard.
This sample pack came in a tin round box, which I like and can be used for other purposes as well!
It smells like chocolate no doubt but has smell of other oils too like the Jojoba oil in it. Fragrance is nice and soothing, but when I took some product out, it was very thick with chunky sugar cubes, so while I tried using this in the shower, it wasn’t an easy job, mainly because of those large chunks of sugar that resists the circular massaging movement and not only that when you massage they will just fall out, :/ creating a mess, though would dissolve and would be washed off but the actually purpose of exfoliation wasn’t fulfilled well. I took some in the palm and let them dissolve and get smaller so that at least it can work out, somehow, it was done finally!!
After the shower skin was smooth and smells nice but the efforts that I had to put unnecessarily due to it’s big sugar crystals were not as pleasing.
I would rather make a chocolate scrub myself my adding brown sugar and essential oils to melted chocolate, which would have worked better and far more economical.
Anyways, here are the pros and cons:
It Smells of chocolate (Belgian chocolate I should say!)
Moisturizes and hydrates the skin
Exfoliates till the time the sugar chunks stay in the massaging motion, if not fall out!
Skin feels smooth and silky.
Skin feels smooth and silky.
Expensive for the quantity.
Large sugar cubes makes it difficult and messy to use
Rating: 3.25 out of 5
Last take: You can try it if you like chocholate scrubs but other options are also there!!
