Based on my experience with the Terra Dolce Floridan Body Scrub, here is a brief summary of my pros and cons. First off, the pros.
• Made with just pure Florida-grown sugar, natural oils, extracts and essential blends from Florida. It doesn’t contain animal products, preservatives, parabens, harsh chemicals, and also it’s certified cruelty-free by PETA.
• Less abrasive and gentle to skin, they leave my elbows, knees and feet smoother and softer after rinsing. Great for pre-shave or exfoliating entire body.
• Used the scrub on damp skin in hot showers: the sugar body scrub dissolves into sensitive skin quickly without a greasy or harsh finish. I’m just glad it doesn’t feel greasy afterward. This scent is AMAZING and I smelled yummy during hot showers. I feel like I am trotting through the beach in Florida when I use this. It has a sweet, refreshing scent of oranges and very summer-like and most certainly ‘Floridan.’
• If you live in a humid or hot area, keep it away from bugs and ants by placing it in a bag or sealed container. The body scrub attracted ants during the summer.
• After rinsing off the scrub , only a faint scent remained on my skin. This could be perceived as either a positive or a negative depending on where you stand on fragrance, but most importantly Terra Dolce Floridan Body Scrub left my skin feeling soft.
