The Bathing Garden Creamy Sugar Scrub Review

The Bathing Garden Creamy Sugar Scrub

So you might recall the Bathing Garden Tarts which I cannot rave enough! Recently, I did my first order for some Bathing Garden Creamy Sugar Scrub…I’m not really sure when scrubs were introduced but this is the first time I indulged.

When I discovered The Bathing Garden it was an Etsy shop. It moved to Facebook soon after and set up shop and even more recently a new website was launched where you can place orders.

The shop is typically open once a month and features new fragrances with each re-open. The Creamy Sugar Scrub review I’m about to do falls at the right time because the shop is currently open for business with Circus themed tarts and scrubs available for purchase until June 5th at which time it will close again, get orders out, and re-open again with new fragrances!

Needless to say I love this shop’s tarts! They are AMAZING! Fantastic throw, great linger, and really complex fragrances!

Anyway, my recent order I decided to order some of the Creamy Sugar Scrubs and here’s some thoughts!

The Bathing Garden Creamy Sugar Scrubs

Back in the day I used to love me some Isle of Eden Scrubs (remember the drama anyone!?) but I kinda got burnt out on ’em! I was all scrubbed out to say the least.

So it has been a while since I’ve indulged in e-tailer scrubs so imagine my pleasant surprise when I tried the Bathing Garden’s Creamy Sugar Scrub and was terribly impressed. This formula is very, very good. It’s a creamy very refined sugar scrub. The texture is very soft and quite reminds me of the consistency of Fortune Cookie Soap’s new Talkin’ Smack Lip Scrub.

The sugar is very soft and gentle yet still manages to buff away drier skin on legs, elbows, knees, etc…! It also breaks down and begins to lather the more you scrub and rinses clean away without making skin too oily. I love Philosophy Senorita Margarita Body Scrub or even their Pink Lemonade Scrub from years past but it does have a good deal of oil in it which makes my shower slippery plus the grains are very large and course. The Bathing Garden’s formula is far more gentle and still successfully whisks away drier skin and smooths and softens my skin.

The Bathing Garden Sugar Scrub

And of course, the fragrances are SO unique. I ordered three scrubs one of which was Pink Candy Queen and this is pretty much a spot on dupe for Lush Candy Fluff’s fragrance. I was also surprised the Rose Glace Scrub scent was spot on for Lush’s Rose Jam! Rose Jam can be an overwhelming scent sometimes but Bathing Garden mixed it with brown sugar in a scrub called Brown Sugar Cream Rose Bouquet and that touch of brown sugar subdues the Rose Jam and creates a really pretty scent. I really wish that they offered fragrance mists in these fragrances because they are simply divine! There are plenty of Lush Dupe fragrances around e-tailers but I really thought the Bathing Garden did something special with theirs!

I also picked Citrus Cake Batter which is an orange-y pastry cake scent that just makes you want to eat it! Mmmm!

Needless to say I thought these scrubs were as incredible as the Bathing Garden tarts I so dearly love.

I highly recommend checking them out!

Please keep in mind that orders take three to four weeks to arrive prior to placing an order.

    Oh fun! I have been looking for a new scrub that wasn’t big chunks of sugar in a pool of oil, this sounds fantastic, got my order in! Thanks for introducing a lesser-known company to us!

      my pleasure and yeah same here! it seems like scrubs are SO coarse lately with tons and tons of oil! the oil is great for my dry skin but they are such a hazard in the shower 😀

    I can’t wait until she offers the Rose Jam dupe! That’s my all time fav scent and would love it in any form! I placed my order on Sunday but didn’t get any scrubs this go round. Kind of regretting that now….sigh
