Treacle Moon range
I have tried a few Treacle Moon products in the past and always liked them, so I was very pleased to receive this from Father Christmas last year. This costs £3.03 from the Treacle Moon website, but I would recommend purchasing these products from Tesco, which stocks the range. Although only a few pence cheaper at £2.99, the range is frequently on offer.
This comes in a clear tube that sits on its lid. Inside you can see that the contents are pure white, with lots of visible dark particles. I liked this as I do like my scrubs to actually scrub and this seemed promising!
A lovely sweetness
I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with coconut scented products. Sometimes they just don't quite work for me, and I can find the scent a bit unpleasant. However, sniffing this before I used it in the shower, I really liked the fragrance. It is quite sweet and, although is is most definitely a coconut scent, it has a slight fruitiness to it that I really like.
Dispensing a small amount of this into the shower, I was pleased at how rich and creamy it was. It has a nice thickness to it which makes it easy to apply to the skin, and you can give yourself a good scrub without the product sliding or dripping off. It really feels like it is exfoliating the skin, and because of the creamy texture it feels as though it is moisturising at the same time.
This washes away easily and definitely leaves skin feeling lovely and smooth and although I noticed that the smell lingered slightly, once I had used my shower gel this of course disappeared.
Overall I really like this scrub and would highly recommend it. It exfoliates nicely and moisturises skin at he same time, which is what I really want from any shower scrub. The smell is pleasant too. However I am going to take off one star as it isn't my dream scrub - I think this would have a more out and out fruity fragrance! I also think it may be a tad too harsh for sensitive skin.
