Treacle Moon Vanilla & Coconut Body Scrubs

Treacle Moon review

As we all know by now one of my favourite beauty products is a good shower gel. I've been trying to cut back on buying them and spending money on beauty products that people can actually see and make a bigger difference to my physical appearance (like lipstick, or hair dye).  But when two body scrubs from Treacle Moon were in my goody bag from the #ScotBlogMeet I couldn't exactly say no to a new addition? 

Treacle Moon were a brand that I had previously heard of but hadn't researched. Whilst I'm still conducting my own research into their cf stance their packaging does state they are cruelty-free and use vegan formulas. Hopefully this will stand true.  

I was a little sceptical when I received these as the packaging and branding does suggest 'something you'd buy that teenage niece/cousin for Christmas'. However I found the scrub itself to have a very smooth, thick and luxurious texture. It doesn't foam and instead remains like a cream when using it. The scrub particles are very gentle so is ideal for anyone with normal skin, but might not be enough for someone who suffer from very flaky or dry skin. 

However one thing that did put me off was the scents. They weren't horrible by any means but they did smell a bit...artificial. I love coconut scented products and this was just very sickly sweet. The vanilla one was my favourite as it was a bit most subtle but I'm not normally drawn to vanilla scents so I'm not sure how this would compare. The scent really reminded me of something I would have used when I was a teenager and I would recommend it for your teenage neice but not sure if I'd recommend it for my - mostly - twenty something readers.
