Yesterday I posted my Sephora haul which included some Dylan's Candy Bar goodies. During the week, I finally got a chance to test out the Ice Cream Sugar Scrub in yummy Strawberry Licorice ($10 on sale.) The only body scrubs that I've ever used are The Body Shop scrubs and my own olive oil and sugar mix (cheap and effective.) Here's a little review on my experience.
The Packaging: I simply adore the packaging on all the Dylan's Candy Bar products. The Ice Cream Sugar Scrub tub looks much like its name -a carton of ice cream! The lid twists off -which keeps its contents inside secure. I like the labels on the carton too -so colorful and tempting.
Overall: I cannot see myself paying the original price of $20 for this when it's probably going get used up fairly quickly. For $10 though, I might want another carton/tub of this stuff but I wouldn't be crazily stocking up on it. Sure the smell is nice and the product is good but it doesn't work any better than my own mixture of olive oil and sugar to exfoliate my body. I think that The Body Shop scrubs do a better job at getting rid of the dead skin and dirt although this Ice Cream Scrub is gentler. Overall, it's a pretty good product for $10 but is more of a luxury item than a need.
