Soap & Paper Factory Orange Blossom Pure Sea Salt Body Scrub

Early March weather is already getting warm. It was almost 70 degrees today which makes me want to go to the beach. But before I go, I need to make sure my body looks perfectly polished. So this is what I need – Orange Blossom Pure Sea Salt Body Scrub from Soap & Paper Factory!

Cherished for its exotic qualities, orange blossom is soothing and brings feelings of peace and serenity. The low subtle notes of this fragrance are deep, alluring and passionate.

The packaging is rather simple and the label is well thought. There was no outside box. Besides the hand drawn orange flowers printed on the front, there’s only a short description, direction of use and ingredients on the back.

CONSERVE WATER, SHARE A SHOWER! One more reason to spend time with our loved ones, and it’s a good one.

So pure and innocent! Though I wish you could smell it instead.

A more closed up look of the salt crystals. It’s so beautiful that I just had to take a picture, though it didn’t come out as nice as it really is.

My thoughts about Soap & Paper Factory Orange Blossom Pure Sea Salt Body Scrub

What I like:

– The smell is beyond divine! It’s not too strong yet super soothing and relaxing.
– The salt crystals don’t dissolve too fast which gives you time to rub around. The feeling is pleasant.
– Though it’s a salt scrub, it doesn’t dry out skin afterwards. Instead it’s super moisturizing and nourishing, thanks to the essential oils and botanical ingredients.
– It doesn’t really make the tub slippery. In fact it’s the least slippery salt scrub I’ve used so far.
– There’s NO petrochemicals, NO silicones, NO parabens, NO phthalates, NO dyes. That means ALL NATURAL.
– The jar is made from recycled materials without additional boxing to save resources. It’s totally VEGAN and CRUELTY FREE.

What could be better:

– It’s a little hard to get, only in selected stores and online. I really hope more stores will carry this brand.
– This product is not cheap. $36 body scrub is rather a pamper than routine.

Final thoughts:

The first time when I opened the jar, I was like “Wow this smells like heaven!” I left the lid open and the whole house smells like orange blossom. Being a busy person, I normally took quick showers. Now I’m hooked by the scent and the soft skin after using this; I refuse to get out of shower. One amazing thing that really sets this apart from other salt scrubs is that the scent lingers for hours afterwards. I can’t stop sniffing at myself. At the same time, the scent is just so light. It’s miracle. I really wonder how they can do that. Also the essential oils make this scrub gentle enough for daily use. My skin is supple and glow-y even without using a body lotion. Last but not least, it feels totally luxurious; I’d say it’s like a spa at home.
