This body scrub has been part of my weekly pampering treatment for the past few months. This review is coming late - I'm practically done with the jar so I can't really show you the consistency but it's too good not to share about!

I'm no choco-holic (I'm that boring person that chooses vanilla ice cream over chocolate) but I
still really loved the scent. It's sweet but not artificial smelling and was perfect for the winter and spring time. Once it became summer, it started to feel less warm and inviting and more sweet, which translates to sticky in my mind. If you're like me and like chocolate, but don't love it, I'd recommend this for the cooler months.

The consistency of this scrub is perfect, in my opinion. It's kinda like a gel that's a good balance between physical exfoliants and moisturizing oils. Your skin will be soft after using this, plus I didn't have issues with it making the tub slippery!

FYI: This comes in a "cool mint lemonade salt scrub" version too.

Overall: I recommend this scrub!
I'm personally not going to re-purchase it because I'm trying to go for more vegan products, but for those of you just interested in natural or cruelty-free products, this is a good one!
