I received an Along Came Betty gift set last Christmas which consisted off three products - a shimmering body lotion, bath salts and a skin buffer. Naturally I jumped at the scrub due to my complete obsession with them recently. I wasn't really sure what to expect as I've never tried anything from this brand before. However I was keeping an open mind and ended up getting mixed results.
The first thing I noticed when I opened up this pot was how strong the citrus scent was! I absolutely adore anything remotely citrusy so this immediately struck a high note with me. It smells like a mix between orange and grapefruit - really refreshing and perfect for those morning pick-me-ups!
Immediately after the scent, I noticed how ridiculously runny this product is. To date I've not tried a scrub that's so incredibly thin and watery. Most of them have been considerably thicker, creamier or even gel-like. On the other hand, this one will literally slip through your fingers if you're not careful. It's very easy to lose the product before it even reaches the desired skin. To put this into perspective, I pour this out of the tub... Pour!
The beads are really strange too. They are few and far between which certainly does make for a gentle scrub considering there isn't much scrub action going on. This resembles more of a face scrub with it's tiny mirco-beads rather than a body product. My face is a lot more sensitive and needs more gentle care. However when it comes to my body and specifically my legs, I want something that is going to leave them slippery soft and smooth.
Once applied to the skin it does turn into a slightly milky texture but nothing overly soapy. Unfortunately this meant that I didn't feel very clean afterwards and proceeded to use my shower gel to finish off the job.
This was a neither-here-nor-there product for me. I'm really not fussed with it. It's a small tub so I'll probably use it up within my next week's worth of showers but I wouldn't worry about repurchasing it at all.. And so the scrub hunt continues..
