Weekly Raves #4: TCF Scrub-in-a-Tub in ‘Goat’s Milk & Cinnamon’
The Cream Factory Scrub-in-a-Tub is offered in three variants: Salty – which is composed of rock salt crystals to really exfoliate our skin (comes in Seaweed and Witch Hazel flavors), Creamy – a nutty treat with walnut sprinkles to get rid of our skin’s impurities (comes in Honey and Jojoba), and finally Yummy – which consists of bits of cocoa beans to awaken our skin. (comes in Almond and Cinnamon). The one that I have, however, is in ‘Goat’s Milk & Cinnamon’ which means that I have the ‘Yummy’ variant, and I’m telling you, it really does live up to its claims.
The product’s packaging is quite simple, yet direct to the point. It comes in a plastic tub with a flip-top cap for your convenience. Inside, upon opening, you’ll see a really cute pamphlet telling you all you need to know about the brand, The Cream Factory as well as their exfoliating creams. You will need to remove the white lid inside the cap to be able to use the flip-top cover.
Just like the The Cream Factory Bath Creams, the smell of this product is also heavenly. Smelling this off the tub reminds me of Starbucks and Tootsie Roll for some reason. It really does smell Yummy. I also love the fact that despite that this is an exfoliating scrub, the texture/consistency is still very creamy. Therefore, if you have a dry skin like me, you’ll still get to experience that nourishing & moisturizing aspect of the product, which is the goat’s milk. While also, being able to exfoliate & purify your skin with the help of the cocoa bean bits.
Just like the TCF Bath Creams, the smell of this lingers and it takes me back to a ton of places, actually. I don’t know where it takes me back to whether my childhood, back when I’m so addicted to Tootsie Rolls or Starbucks, because both are such fond addictions, lol. Nevertheless, I still love the scent. It lingers and another plus factor is that even my bathroom smells extra yummy after I take a bath.
If you have been following/reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I love exfoliating scrubs that are quite abrasive. That’s how I know that they’re working, LOL. But this one, this is really gentle and not that abrasive. You get to feel the bits of cocoa beans along with the creamy chocolate concoction working together. I guess that’s the reason why I really like this product. It’s different from most of the exfoliating scrubs that I’ve tried before. It’s just the perfect balance between the creaminess of the goat’s milk & the exfoliating bits of the cocoa beans. Like I said before, you get to exfoliate your skin and at the same time moisturize it. The others before were either too abrasive so I only use it one to two times a week, others are too liquidy, you don’t even feel them once you rub it in your hands. They melt quickly and all you have is a bath cream.
Like always, a little of this product goes a long way. However, since I’m pretty much addicted to this product, I’m not really satisfied with just ‘a little’. I have to remind myself repeatedly that it’s still an exfoliating product, so I only have to use it at least three to four times a week, and that I need to do soemthing after taking a bath. Because taking a bath with this along with my favorite The Cream Factory Bath Cream in ‘Goat’s Milk & Honey’ is like something that I look forward to everyday. It’s exhilarating, and the smell? Oh! Heavenly. These products are truly a desert for your skin.
