Is it a scrub? Is it a butter? It’s both, which saves time and money! My mate Stephie surprised me with this for christmas, so I don’t know why I’m only just blogging about it. Maybe because it’s a prezzie and not a product gifted to me for review purposes. I have to share it with people who are yet to discover it, it’s that awesome!



This bar smells like freshly baked biscuits so I had to resist the urge to lick it! Cocoa butter and Almond butter provide moisture but the bar has enough resistance to scrub with, rather than turning into a gooey mess. The ground almond shells are so fine and generously added they do a wonderful job of gently exfoliating skin without irritating it. I even used this on my nose and forehead but don’t recommend this if you have sensitive skin obv! The fine grit does mean it’s necessary to buy a storage tin (thanks Steph), this will also keep it away from the daily humidity of your bathroom. I took this picture when I first got it so you could see how thick it is, believe me, it last a long time!


Fair trade organic cocoa butter, almond butter, laureth 4, ground almond shells, sandalwood oil, rose absolute, lilial, perfume.

      I’ve had exfoliating bars before in various forms but never had one with so many scrubby bits as this – I was really surprised!
