Bodycare Review: Lather Celebration Bamboo Scrub

Since I have a lot more time this holiday season, I’ve been focusing on self-care. One of the things I like to do is have a bath and light a candle at night.

The Limited-Edition Celebration Bamboo Scrub from Lather smells like a quiet celebration. It has hints of chai spices, ginger, and cinnamon that makes you smile and vanilla and cardamom that sort of subdues and sweetens the party. It smooths and soothes the skin. I like using this on my arms, legs, and feet because the large scrubs really massages the overworked skin on those parts. It contains bamboo, coconut powder, turmeric, and neem leaf extract that helps leave the skin feeling refreshed, smooth, and soft. This product is cruelty-free, vegan, and is also made without parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, and synthetic fragrance and colors.

For a feel of a warm hug, while exfoliating, I light up the Let’s Celebrate soy wax candle. This heightens the smell of cardamom, ginger, cinnamon leaf, and vanilla and makes me feel calm yet happy. I like the tin-like packaging because it’s small and can be placed anywhere in my bathroom without worrying about slips and breaking. This candle is also cruelty-free and is made without parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, synthetic fragrance, artificial color, and paraffin.

Since these products are created in time for Lather’s 20th Anniversary, they will donate $1 for every Celebration Bamboo Scrub sold to The Sundara Fund. They aim to help women in India out of poverty and educate the community on hygiene.

Bodycare Review: Frank Body Cinna-buns Scrub

Less than 7 weeks before Christmas so it’s nice to surround yourself with as many Christmasy things as possible. For me its the new body scrub from Frank Body. The Cinna-Buns Scrub is a limited-edition scrub that smells like my Christmas. It just perks me up and makes me want to decorate my house and paint it red and green.

It contains coffee, of course, to boost circulation and buff away dry skin, marks, and scars. It also has cinnamon to heal, hydrate, and nourish the skin. This body scrub also has honey and ginger powder to help moisturize, soothe, and protect the skin against free radical damage and premature aging.

Its texture and feel are the same as the original coffee scrub but this smells like Christmas mornings. It not only wakes me up in the morning, it also makes me smile. As with all Frank Body scrubs, this helps soften and smooth my skin while moisturizing and nourishing it.
