I’ve been wanting to try this scrub since FOREVER!!!
I smell it every time I walk past a Laura Mercier counter. It’s definitely on the pricey side for a scrub ($50), and I’ve just never gotten around to actually purchasing it. I decided to finally indulge. I would LOVE to also get the body cream, but I decided to just start with one first. During Christmas, Laura Mercier does gift sets with both the body cream and scrub, and it’s really the way to get them. It’s a GREAT deal compared to buying them separately.
Back to the scrub… Byron was heading to the mall to pick up a bunch of things, and he asked me if he could pick up anything for me. I asked him to grab the scrub if he happened to stop by Nordstrom. When he got home, he informed me that the entire mall was sold out of the Coconut Almond scrub, except for one more left at Nemian Marcus. haha
By this point, Byron was wondering if this body scrub was liquid gold or something. lol
I already knew the product smelled amazing (from all the times I went to get a free whiff from the Laura Mercier counter), but I have to reiterate the amazingness!!
It’s such a sexy summer sent! That’s the best way to describe it. It smells like a dream vacation, if a dream vacation ever had a smell.
I wish you could smell it through the screen, but you MUST go take a whiff at your local Laura Mercier counter. She has tons of different scents, and I would definitely love to try the pistachio in the future.
The scrub itself is pretty mild (for my liking). I’ve definitely tried stronger/ more abrasive scrubs in the past, and I think they could have made the scrub a bit more dense, but it almost has the texture of grainy whipped honey. It still has nice thick sea salt bits, so you get a good scrub from it. It’s VERY hydrating to the skin, without being too sticky or too slippery/oily.
Overall, I would give this product an A. It’s a product I’ve fallen in love with, and even Byron constantly mentions how amazing it smells. We kept wondering if he could possibly make a dessert that would taste as good as this scrub smells. This is definitely one of those products that is very tempting to eat.. lol
If you’re looking for a super yummy indulgence, I would definitely recommend trying this product out. I’ve never been disappointed with Laura Mercier products.
