BambuEarth Sugar Cookie Body Polish Review

I received this adorably packaged scrub in my February Seasons Box, back in...well...February. Before I get into the review, I want to touch a little on BambuEarth. It was started by Amber in 2009 with a desire to live a more sustainable life. She believes in keeping things as simple, natural, and raw as possible in order to actually benefit the skin by providing it with living nutrients. Her products are made using sustainable, ethical, organic, and local ingredients. They're also free from phthalates, parabens, sulfates, preservatives, synthetic fragrances and dyes, and are never tested on animals. If you'd like to read more on the company, you can check out their story here. I also highly recommend checking out their website, in general, because all of products sound and look absolutely amazing. The best part is that the ingredients are minimal and recognizable in each product!
Now, for the review...

Description: Our Sugar Cookie Body Glow is hand-crafted with mineral rich dead sea salt for it's therapeutic properties and exfoliation power along with organic coconut oil for moisture. This blend is soothing to the skin and will fill your bath with the irresistible scent of fresh baked sugar cookies. The aromas of vanilla sugar, almond and a hint of lemon is a combo that's tough for any woman to resist.

The label is so adorable! I just love it! While the glass jar isn't ideal for use in a wet shower or travel friendly, it is very eco-friendly and a great reusable jar. When most people think of salt scrubs, they think aggressive. This scrub is far from that. I applied it in sections, on wet skin and gently rubbed in a circular motion. The salt slightly melts away to create a very gentle, yet effective exfoliation. While my skin was left super soft, I didn't particularly care for this scrub. It left an oily residue on my skin and tub bottom (which is expected with most scrubs), but the deal breaker was the scent. The almond was just way too strong for me and I didn't get that sweet cookie scent that I was hoping for. I'm also a little bias because I prefer dry brushing or exfoliating gloves. If you love scrubs, I've heard rave reviews on the scent and therefore, I'd recommend trying it out.

Retails for $17 - $18 USD for 8oz (a little goes a long way). Can be purchased through BambuEarth or Seasons Box.

Do you prefer scrubs, exfoliating tool (gloves, brush, etc), or both?


  1. I rarely use scrubs but i do love a good dry brushing :) Love your new blog layout :) xx

    1. There's just something about a no mess body exfoliation that's so much more enjoyable. Thank you :) still playing with it xo

  2. Love the layout! I usually mix up my own scrubs. I want to try dry brushing, but I always get stumped choosing a brush. Is it too hard? Too soft? I can never tell, and then I just end up not buying one, haha :) What kind of brush do you use?

    1. Thank you! I'm still playing with it. Haha you're so funny. I was like that too until I went to the spa show and Merben (sold at Whole Foods) was there. They told me to work my way from soft to medium and finally to the hard(er) brush. I personally find the soft brush too soft for me but it was better than getting one that was too rough. It's a nice brush though!


Thanks for the comment/feedback!
