I fell in love with a sugar scrub company many years ago but I hated the turn around time when I placed my order. It should *not* take 2 months for someone to get an order. I have NO idea why people tolerate that except that the pictures look really nice, the scent combos are amazing, and the scrubs really are very nice.
I made it my mission to find a scrub that was comparable. After lots of talk on bath and body forums I found Mad City Sue on Etsy. Her scrubs are nice but they just aren't the same! I love the turn around time from Sue and I like that she does custom scent blends so that's what keeps me coming back time and time again.
This past month, I order monthly, I ordered and requested for her to make them thicker. I wanted to see how it would compare. First scrub - still a little too runny. Second scrub - better but still not there. Third scrub - dead on! The test is scooping a little out and being able to roll it into a ball without it loosing shape. It did just this and I was totally excited. I don't mind paying extra for the more sugar either but I want my scrubs like this each and every time! I'm thrilled that I've now found my staple that is exactly like my old favorite and there's only a 2 day turn around. Can't beat that!
