{review & giveaway} Apricot Cybilla Sugar Cube Scrub from CleanQueenSoapCo. CLOSED

GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

Spring is here (rain and all), the grass is greener, flowers are blooming (achooo!), and the air is alive with the sound of bird song. I don't know about you, but after a hard days work soaking in the freshness of spring I'm ready for a nice long bath! And what better way to spring clean your skin then with an all natural sugar cube scrub.
:Introducing:

I received a lovely little sample of Apricot Cybilla Sugar Cube Scrub from CleanQueenSoapCo. and I have to admit these cubes are total bliss. First off they smell absolutely delish! My mail box smelt way too good the day these babies arrived. It's a really nice fruity smell, sometimes I find fruit soaps or perfumes a little too sweet but this blend of apricot cybilla was amazing. You could even put a few cubes in an envelope and sit them in your closet, your clothes will be sure to attract a few curious noses. The second thing that I love about CleanQueenSoapCo.'s sugar cube scrub is their hardiness. One thing that drives me nuts when using most mainstream cubes is the fact that they dissolve as soon as they come into contact with water. This results in a bath far from relaxing as you race against the clock to lather up before the cube slips through your fingers. There was no dissapearing act when it came to the Apricot Cybilla Sugar Cube Scrub, these great cubes can be dunked and scrubbed as leisurely as you like! And scrub they do. I don't own a car so my main mode of transportation are my two left feet and my trunk consists of a well worn backpack, needless to say my shoulders are deffinetley worse for wear. These sugar cube scrubs proved to be a wonderful exfoliant, they rejuvinated my tough dry skin while working a bit of aroma therapy magic. The end result was healthier, smoother skin and a happier mind. To learn more about the Apricot Cybilla Sugar Cube Scrub you can go here.
And now some totally exciting news, Lisa, the clean queen herself, has agreed to give one of my lucky readers their very own 10oz jar of Apricot Cybilla Sugar Cube Scrub (that's approximately 15 fair sized cubes). This jar retails for $12 US.
