Scrub-a-dub-dub

I think I'm in love with a scrub.
A body scrub that is.
You all know I go absolutely ga-ga over new beauty (read makeup) products but did you also know I have a small obsession with bath products as well?
Yeah. Skincare is the business and I aim to keep mine in top notch condition.
Of course I exfoliate my face because I want my makeup to look its very best.....but I'm also slightly obsessed with exfoliating my body as well.
Spring is here and Summer is coming just around the corner and that means short dresses, shorts and .....(gulp) bathing suits!
A few weeks ago Hautelook was having another great beauty event, this time they were featuring 100% Pure a wonderful beauty & skincare brand that has a TON of yummy treats for me to choose from that not only smell great but are good for my skin!
The products are all organic and vegan and contain no harsh additives.
No emulsifiers, thickeners, fragrances or preservatives.
The downside to the lack of preservatives means your products have an expiration date that is clearly shown on the package.

The upside is that you don't have to worry about any harsh reactions from use AND you know exactly how long the product is good for!
To me the benefits far outweigh the downsides.
I was fortunate enough to score 2 separate sets:
Organic Boxed Fruit Body Scrub set ( three 6oz. scrubs :Organic Blood Orange, Fuji Apple & Pomegranate) - retails for : $35.00 - I paid $14.00


forgot to include the body lotion
Pomegranate Body Kit ( Body wash 16oz., Body Lotion  7.5oz & Body Scrub 13oz ) retails for: $45.00 -  I paid $18.00
All in all I spent $32.00 (excluding tax)..... not a bad haul if I do say so myself.
It arrived on Monday (earlier than expected so that's always a plus) but I forgot about it until I was in the shower Tuesday morning.
I quickly hopped out of the shower and ran down stairs to grab the scrub and test it out.
It's A-MAZING. I am so happy with my purchase!!
The scrub is perfect in my opinion.
Not too harsh, not too slippery and not overly pungent and left my bedroom smelling delicious for hours!
Left my skin silky smooth and not dried out and allowed it to soak up the moisture from the lotion.
LOVE.
If you haven't - go get some here and check it out for yourself! 
Your skin will thank you.
