I love a good body scrub just as much as I love a good exfoliating mask for my face. In fact, I may love it even more. There is just something invigorating about a Body Scrub. This particular Body Scrub is from Bubble T and it is in the scent Watermelon.
Watermelon and I can have issues. Most of the issues stem from it being overused. I have this same problem with pretty much every over used scent (except peppermint. You can never have enough peppermint.) The summertime seems to be the time when both Watermelon and Coconut scents are used and abused.
They appear everywhere and while I can be fond of each, over use makes me dislike them both. The second issue is that not everyone treats Watermelon right. (they also do naughty things to coconut, but we will stay with the Watermelon for now.)
Watermelon can be overly sweet. While sometimes this can smell nice (like in a lip gloss) when you are talking cleansing products overly sweet smells can tip over into making me feel sticky even though I know I am not. As this summer has not been overly watermelon infused, I thought now was a good time to test this out. According to the product description…

When dispensed out, this body scrub has a blue tint and you can see some of the scrubbing bits. There is a slight watermelon scent, although to me it smells a bit more peachy than watermelon-y. It is not overly sweeet, which I like, but it is also not overly anything much. The scent mostly dissipates as it comes out of the tube.
There is absolutely no foaming of the scrub. Some body scrubs do, some don’t. This one doesn’t. The scrub from the Body Scrub is okay. It isn’t something i was particularly excited to use. It didn’t leave me feeling especially cleansed and did leave a little bit of a film on my skin. I think this might have been the softening elements of the body wash. I didn’t care for it. While I started off using a wash cloth, I rapidly switched to an exfoliating body scrubber (Daily Concepts) . Ths scrubber took off the film, and I suspect gave me more exfoliation than the body scrub.
While this isn’t overly sweet or watermelon-y it isn’t really overly anything else. If you had sensitive skin and wanted a gentle scrub, you might find this of use. As for me, it was a product that i used and emptied. I am now letting it go and not picking it up again. I like that Bubble t is a relatively inexpensive bath product line, but thus far my favorite thing from them have been the Bath Fizzies. Those I would return to the site to buy. This Body Scrub I wouldn’t buy again, nor would I put it in my cart to make it to fee shipping. I would just add another bath fizzie to the mix. For me, this was a definite failure.
