I'm a cold processed soap and whipped sugar scrub snob. I've tried many a scrub and plenty of soaps in my day. When I purchased The Little Black Box things became increasingly worse as I had access all the samples pouring in. I'm also a member of Makeupalley which doesn't make things any better. When I see posts from people posting their hauls or sale info I usually pounce.
Fair warning about Makeupalley though.. As a business owner you can NOT really post there without a witch hunt type atmosphere taking place. It's pretty cliquish. There are a few gems there but a majority of the members aren't so friendly and will do anything to take you down if you look at them wrong. My best advice is to read and only post if you have something to add. Never post about your business if you are a business owner. They'll black list you...
Carrying on. I found out about Mad City Sue from Makeupalley. See - they are good for something! Actually the more I think about it I may have found them from Wickedly Chic. Either way I found them! Mad City Sue was one of my 1st purchases from Etsy many years ago. Since then I've purchased from this shop regularly as it's a staple of mine in the shower. I used my Vanilla Cupcake sugar scrub this morning and it was heaven. Simply delish! I pretty much won't ever say no to a foody scent and Mad City Sue has a wide variety of them. If you don't see a scent that you'd enjoy then her scent list will allow you to find one and you can send her a convo requesting a custom order. I do it all the time!
I use their scrubs on my arms and legs and when I'm out my skin feels soft and smooth - so alive again! My husband even sneaks into my scrub stash to pick out ones he likes. He's into earthy scents so when Christmas rolls around I usually snag 2 or 3 for him and toss them in his stocking so that he'll stay out of mine.
I urge you to check out this shop if you are a bath and body freak like me. If you are thinking of adding sugar scrubs to your inventory send me a sample and I'll tell you what I think about it. Let me be your guinea pig!
