I’ve been using Flake Away for about 3 years now. My mom bought it as a gift, and now it’s the only body scrub I’ll use! It has shea butter, sweet almond oil, peach seed powder, sea salt and sugar in it, and I usually use it in the shower about twice a week. However, I’m careful about using it only on rough areas of my skin, mainly because…
Texture: Very rough. This is NOT a gentle scrub! This is something that you use when you want your skin to look really polished (like, reflecting light k). In fact, it is not called a scrub. It's called a body polish. I avoid using it on sensitive areas like my chest or hands because I’ve rubbed them almost raw before with this scrub. Not cute. Also, because it contains sea salt, do NOT use it on broken skin! If you have cuts, it will burn. Trust me on this.
Effect: There’s a layer sweet almond oil that leaves your skin really soft right after scrubbing. I don’t need to put lotion on my skin after using this scrub, which is a great bonus for when I’m rushing (which is always). That's a big plus for all glam mamas, I'm sure.
Scent: It smells sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. I think it’s Soap & Glory’s signature scent, because it’s the same smell as some of their other products. I love that my bathroom smells delicious after scrubbing away! To be honest, sometimes that's the real reason I use this scrub. Let's call it aromatherapy. Plus, even after rinsing, the sweet smell stays on my skin all day.
Packaging: I love all of Soap and Glory's cheeky copy and visuals, and this scrub is no different. On this jar, it says, "Shhhh...now he'll never know that all this time you've been flaking it!" LOL! I love me some puns, man.
You can find this scrub locally, at your nearest Sephora store.
Verdict: 5/5 (I seriously love this product la)
