Treacle Moon is a brand that I've wanted to try for a while. But their products are only sold in Tesco and Waitrose. My hometown has just about every shop but a Tesco or Waitrose. So I've not had the chance to buy myself any of their products. But I've seen them around on blogs and always thought the scents sounded great. So I was absolutely delighted when I when to #scotblogmeet and found that they had donated products for the goody bags. In mine was a tube of their That Vanilla Moment Body Scrub*. I have pretty dry skin so I love using a body scrub in the shower to help remove dead flaky skin(gross but true) before applying a moisturiser or body butter. My favourite ones are the Soap and Glory scrubs so I was interested to see how this compared seeing as it’s a fraction of the price at £2.99.
First of all: this smells absolutely amazing. I've been sharing this with my younger sister and the first thing she said about it was that is smells like cake. The vanilla scent is pretty strong so it is very reminiscent of a vanilla cupcake. And it’s the right colour for it too. The scrub is quite bitty which I like but you actually have to use quite a bit. So even though the tube it quite cheap I actually finished it quite quickly. It wasn't the strongest scrub I've ever used so it would be ok for almost every day use. I still like a harsher scrub every now and again but I did enjoy this and would buy another. The scent doesn't really stick to you after you get out the shower but I can imagine if you were using the shower gel and the body lotion as well you could really layer the scent to make it stronger. Overall I was really impressed with the quality of the product when you consider the price. I wouldn't say it's better than Soap & Glory's scrubs but it is miles better than the scrubs sold by The Body Shop and Lush.
This scrub comes in a variety of scents and a lot of them sound amazing. I’d be particularly interested in getting my hands on the coconut scent and maybe the ginger too. I think you can buy them online so I might make a wee order. Their shower gels also come in 500ml bottles which is awesome as they last forever!
