Scrubs that smell good enough to eat from Borghese, Avon and Burt's Bees!

Borghese Cura-C Anhydrous Vitamin C Body Scrub - 430ml - $50 - a luxurious water-free body scrub formulated to deliver Vitamin C to your skin leaving it revitalized and moisturized. Formulated with Vitamins A, C - to replenish and correct damaged skin & E plus CoQ10 - for anti-oxidant protection from free radicals and Beta Carotene for anti-oxidant and nourishing benefits as well as Shea Butter - to revitalize and nourish the skin, Squalane, Sunflower Oil and Carrot Oil to soften and smooth skin.

So bla, bla, bla, it does all these wonderful things for your skin, but let's get down to the important thing here - it smells like a creamsicle - and scrubbing yourself with a creamsicle is a wonderful thing my friends! My only caution is the jar - which I love but is super heavy - if you drop this sucker on your foot in the shower you will feel it for sure and probably crack the tile too! Since that's exactly the klutzy kind of thing I would do, I store mine on the floor in the shower and use it from there - no point in tempting fate!

Available online at
Avon Naturals Ice Cream Scrub - 200ml - $8 - if scrubbing with ice cream isn't a freaking brilliant idea, I don't know what is (okay fine, see above)! Chocolate, Vanilla or Strawberry, get smooth with whichever is your favourite or be really creative and mix all 3 together and scrub with Neapolitan! Enriched with shea butter, milk protein and Vitamin E. And if that's not enough, they're housed in the cutest little cone shaped containers. Warning, do not accidentally lick yourself in the shower when half asleep!

Available from your Avon rep - 1-800-265-AVON or online at
Burt's Bees Mango & Orange Sugar Scrub - 225g - $12.99 - natural sugar crystals combine with orange peel and mango seed oil to gently sweep away dead skin cells to leave skin soft and radiant. 100% natural and free of petrochemicals and other synthetic ingredients. Also available in Honey & Shea and Cranberry & Pomegranate scents. It's hard to decide which smell I like the most, a mother really can't play favourites can she...(shhh, Cranberry & Pomegranate)!

Available exclusively at The Bay.

  1. I received the Burts Bees scrub in a tiny sample and now I have it on my shopping list to pick up soon! love it!

  2. Great review!!! :D I was wondering why I had never seen the Burt's Bees scrub before, but then I saw the "available exclusively at The Bay". I love the look of those glass containers, but I am really clumsy and would probably drop it on my foot, like you said. XD
    But ohmygosh is that Avon container SO CUTE!! XD :'D

  3. ICE CREAM SCRUB?!?! I want it!! Though I don't know if I could remember not to lick myself lol!

  4. Scrubs are by far one of my favorite bath time "luxuries". The Ice Cream Scrub sounds awesome. I'll have to pick some up next time i place an Avon order.

  5. Good one scrub and its good to use and apply on face. I think , it will effect good to cure the skin in summers.
