Sugar and Clean
The Good Home Co.
By Debbie Steele
I next tried
Home Company's Sugar Rush Body Scrub ($16 for 8oz.).
The Good Home Company is a small New
York company with a very creative collection of products.
According to the company, "A love of cooking is an inspiration
in every item and common kitchen ingredients like olive oil,
lemon juice and salt are found in many of our products."
use some very clever packaging, like putting body powder in
old-fashioned sugar dispensers. In addition to bath and body
products, they also sell some interesting home products like
sheet spray and dryer sachets.
The sugar rush body scrub is an entirely different animal from
the first three body polishes I tried. Rather than coarse
granules of sugar, this scrub contains fine grains, like table
sugar, and so provides much more gentle exfoliation.
is not as oil-rich, and so does not provide quite the same
intense moisturizing (and doesn't leave the tub quite so
treacherous). However, unlike the body polish, this scrub
contains soap, so it can serve as a one-step bath treatment.
It is packaged in a convenient plastic bottle, and has a
sharp, tangy smell, probably from its lime and grapefruit
oils. In the shower, it feels incredibly soft, gooey and rich,
and makes a respectable lather.
My skin felt nicely
moisturized after using it. Perhaps my favorite part: after
showering with this scrub, I noticed a lingering sweet smell
on my skin for quite awhile. Visit GoodHomeCo.com
