First of all, I want to thank you for visiting my new blog! I’ve been so excited about my own “.com” and after purchasing it last week, I couldn’t concentrate on anything because I was so stoked about having a brand new canvas to paint <or write> on.
So after going through my beauty stash, I figured it would be best to kick off this blog with a product review. After a serious case of indecisiveness, I finally decided that a review on The Cream Factory’s SCRUB-in-a-TUB would be the perfect first post for my new blog. I have the Yummy scrub, which has a chocolate base in the Goat’s Milk and Almond variant! Now that name is a mouthful.
If you read beauty blogs religiously, I’m pretty sure you already know about The Cream Factory. I did a review on their bath creams in my old blog, and I freaking love the stuff so I was really excited when I received an email from the Because Inc. team saying they’re giving me one of their awesome scrubs to try and review! ❤
Now let’s have a look at the scrub!
The Cream Factory Scrub-in-a-Tub Yummy in Goat’s Milk and Almond
Once you get a whiff of this scrub, you will understand why they felt the need to include a “Don’t try to eat this stuff” warning on the label. It smells HEAVENLY and it looks seriously delish!
See what I mean? You could easily mistake the stuff for chocolate ganache!
I have a confession to make. While trying to pick which scrub I like best, I accidentally smeared a glob of it on my nose. All because I was too eager to get a whiff of it. I’m embarrassing, I know.
SCRUB-in-a-TUB is available in 3 variants, the Salty, Creamy, and Yummy. As you can see in the photo above, each scrub has it’s unique ingredient that will exfoliate and hydrate your skin.
It was so hard choosing between the Salty and Yummy variants, because I was torn between trying something new and going for a classic scrub. I love how the Salty scrub is such a great exfoliant, yet it is still gentle to the skin.
In the end though, I picked the Yummy scrub because it’s something different and new to me.
So what’s so good about the Yummy scrub?
It has cocoa bean bits. Aside from exfoliating, the antioxidants in the cocoa bits “awakens” your skin and makes it look brighter and softer. What I love the most about this is it’s the middle ground between the Salty and Creamy scrubs.
When I tried the creamy scrub, I could feel the fine and subtle walnut sprinkles on my skin but I felt like it’s too gentle for me. Meanwhile, the salty scrub is very thick and although it isn’t harsh on the skin, it’s really meant to be used on the body. Read: It’s for hardcore scrub fans.
I’m somewhere in the middle. I like scrubs but I don’t want to overdo it, so the Yummy scrub is just perfect for me. It’s grainy enough for body use and gentle enough for the face. I love using this as a facial scrub once a week because I feel like it really cleanses and brightens my skin. That’s a big plus for me since I wear makeup almost everyday. There are times when I forget to exfoliate and the deep seated makeup residue on my skin causes breakouts.
I’ve had this scrub for 2 weeks and I’ve been using it on my face once a week and twice a week for the body and it is AMAZEBALLS.
I used the scrub on my face last Friday evening and when I woke up the next day, my skin looked extra fresh and bright. 😮
Disclaimer: The Because Inc. team told me that if you want to use these as facial scrubs, the Creamy one would be your best bet, especially if you have sensitive skin because it is the most gentle variant. While it works for me, I wouldn’t recommend using the Yummy scrub on your face if you’re not used to scrubs because it could have adverse effects. Remember, what works for me doesn’t necessarily work for everyone else.
Now that I’ve given you my two cents on the product, let me show you what it looks like and how it works!
You can clearly see the cocoa bits in the scrub.
When massaged onto the skin, the scrub turns white. It will slough off the dead skin cells and leave your skin feeling and looking fresh and clean. Your skin will smell like chocolates too. *wink*
See? The back of my hand looks so fresh and hydrated. 🙂
On the photo above, you can see all the different The Cream Factory ingredients! Each ingredient has it’s unique beneficial property, so don’t choose your The Cream Factory product based on the fragrance alone. Make the most out of your choice by choosing what would be good for your skin as well. After all, the products are meant to be dessert for your skin. 😉
As for me, I love Almond and Cinnamon the most! They both smell great and I always feel refreshed after using the bath creams!
I’m about to finish my bath creams though, so I need to repurchase them soon… If only I don’t have a hard time picking between Cinnamon and Almond… haha!
But I digress.
Overall, I love The Cream Factory SCRUB-in-a-TUB. They are pricey at P599.00 (Creamy), P699.00 (Yummy) and P799.00 (Salty) but we’re talking about premium products made with the best ingredients there are so, I think they are really worth the money.
I will definitely repurchase when I finish my tub, but maybe I’ll get the Salty one next. 🙂
What about you? Have you tried any of The Cream Factory products yet? I would love to hear from you!
Until my next post!
P.S. The Cream Factory SCRUB-in-a-TUB are available at stand alone SNOE stores within Metro Manila, but you can get select variants online at pormada.com.ph too. 🙂
P.P.S. A little birdie told me that The Cream Factory is having a promo on their bath creams right now! If you purchase a large bottle of Bath Cream (26 oz.) you will get a 7.5 oz bottle of bath cream for free! You can avail of this promo in Robinsons Dept. stores only though, so head on over to Robinsons Galleria, Magnolia or Manila! Or else I will hoard them all and leave nothing but crumbs for you. harhar! 😛 I’m kidding! You can thank me for the tip later.
