A couple of years ago, I decided to splurge on a spa treatment. I don’t even know why, but instead of getting my usual massage or the slightly-more-adventurous facial, I opted for a full body scrub. It was an amazing experience — I left feeling rejuvenated and my skin was soft and silky.
It was also really, really expensive.
The good news is that I can get my body scrub fix out of a jar. I recently tried a great scrub from hip E Chick, a lifestyle brand dedicated to eco-friendly and non-toxic products. Many of the beauty products I use on a daily basis are natural, so I’m always on the search for other natural goodies. hip E Chick sent over the scrub in Maui Wowie and Grapefruit Gypsy, both of which smell exactly like you’d expect them to.
The grapefruit version was crisp and refreshing, but I couldn’t wait to try the coconut, pineapple and cilantro-laced Maui Wowie. I slathered it on in the shower — it was exfoliating and kind of energizing. My skin felt so amazing post-shower, I was tempted to skip the lotion, but I know better. I tried hip E Chick’s body lotion in Flower Power. The lotion did the job, but I definitely prefer the Maui Wowie or Grapefruit scents.
I definitely recommend the body scrub — it’s the perfect treat to take your skin from summer to winter. And while it feels just as luxe as my spa body scrub splurge, it’s a much better deal at $36. The organic skincare line also boasts an impressive lineup of other products from soy candles to this intriguing Liquid Gold body treatment.
