Review: Selma Valentine Jamrock Body Scrub & Sweet Sensations Whipped Body Butter

       The Amazing Body Scrub

I absolutely can’t resist a great body scrub! It is a downright shame that not ALL scrubs meet the standards I have for a scrub, though. Some are SUPER oily. So oily that not only my skin is left feeling oily, but my bathtub SHOWS how much oil is in the scrub.

What they say about their product line:
All of our products are handmade, paraben-free and use only the highest quality of premium ingredients. The best part about this product line is that it is 100% eco-friendly!

That’s why I was super excited to be able to test a scrub and body butter from Selma Valentine. I had the opportunity to test a small version of a body butter from my Green Grab Bag a couple months ago and LOVED it. It was a different scent then what I chose this time though.

So, when I got the Jamrock Body Scrub I immediately opened it. I SO wanted to smell it. OH heaven, did it smell absolutely wonderful. Imagine twisting off the cap and getting a whiff of coconuts mixed with citrus lime and Verbena.

I have used products that mixed coconut and lime before and LOVED them, but the verbana (which I had never heard of) added a nice little oomph to this that NO other tropical smelling scrub or lotion has managed.

I love that there aren’t any chemicals or dyes in any of their products. You can see the crystal like little beads when you open the container. No dyes! AND they are completely HANDMADE. Had me at Hello!

The scrub itself is absolutely divine! Buttery rich because it’s blended with cocoa butter, shea butter, and jojoba oil which gives the scrub it’s thick, creamy, and rich mixture. They also NATURALLY moisturize the skin without leaving my skin (or the bottom of my tub) with extra oil and gunk!

I also use this amazing scrub to shave my legs! YES I SAID IT! If you didn’t already know- the scrub softens the skin and moisturizes extremely well. I get a close shave that never has razor burn or dry skin afterwards! WIN for me!

Buy It: You can buy the Jamrock Body Scrub for $15.

The Delicious Smelling Body Butter

I’m pretty sure that I’ve mentioned hating dry skin and hands like a million times. I don’t like lotions or body butters that make my skin too greasy. I am usually writing, sewing, or crocheting- so I don’t need my hands so oily that they slip off my pen, crochet sticks, or sewing machine!

That’s the reason I love the Sweet Sensations Body Butter from Selma Valentine. It FEELS like any other body butter that I’ve EVER used. AND I have quite a few! I choose this over my Amber Romance from Victoria’s Secret! It feels like a whipped mousse, so it goes on perfectly.

This is whipped into complete and absolute perfection. It feels like rubbing little pearls of silk onto my skin. I’ve not only dropped this in my purse, but every time I head for the shower or bath, I DIG it out! I can’t live without this now!

It is free of chemicals, so I’ve been using it on my kids when they get out of their bath too. Now I don’t have to worry about them having chapped skin from the cold weather! AND they smell amazing (teehee). Unlike the regular baby lotions that aren’t detectable after an hour!

It has a wonderful cotton candy smell, but they’ve also added undertones of vanilla and sweet touch of musk to bring out the best in this body butter! Both the scrubs and the body butters are only $15 a piece and they last for a VERY long time.

If you’re thinking about gift baskets for the holidays- these are DEFINITELY two products that you’re going to put in it. They have other smells, so choose which ones you like and nobody could resist owning something so “spa-like” in their own home.

I am in LOVE with both of these products and will definitely be buying more from Selma Valentine. I LOVE what they stand for, that they are eco-friendly, and that all of their products are absolutely PERFECTION.

BUY IT: You can buy the Sweet Sensations Body Butter for $15.
