Simple Sugars Scrubs

Every now and then, a skincare line comes along, and I fall in love. It doesn’t happen often, as you can tell I don’t do many skincare reviews on BeautyJudy. But at Cosmoprof North America Las Vegas, I found my scrub soul mate in Simple Sugars.

Simple Sugars is the creation of 20-year-old Lani Lazzari, who has suffered from eczema and sensitive skin since she was a baby. When Lani was 11, she decided to create her own products that could help soothe her skin. Two days before her graduation from high school, Lani and Simple Sugars were featured on ABC’s hit show, “Shark Tank,” and she secured an investment from billionaire businessman Mark Cuban. Her episode aired March 2013, and business exploded.

Simple Sugars makes no medical claims, but relies on its customer testimonials for its effectiveness. The products include all natural ingredients – the company says they’re so natural, you could eat them, although they don’t recommend it!

Each scrub is basically sugar, oils, botanicals, fresh organic ingredients and natural fragrance and essential oils. They are not only intended to exfoliate, but they encourage consumers to “Go No-Lo,” or “go no lotion” – in other words, they’re so moisturizing, you won’t need a lotion or cream after you exfoliate!

Here’s a look at some of the most popular scrubs in their stock:

There are even scrubs for men – this is one of the most popular:

I received three scrubs to try out from the brand, and I couldn’t wait to see how they performed. Would I feel moisturized? Would they irritate my skin? I suffer from rosacea and related eczema, so I figured my skin problems were right in their wheelhouse.

Here are the scrubs I received to try out. I’ll do a quick review on each one!

Coconut Body Scrub

I love using this scrub on my body, and on my legs after shaving. I don’t need a moisturizer after I use it. It smells heavenly, as they say – like the beach. It’s the perfect scrub for summertime legs, quite honestly! The scent is not overpowering, and it doesn’t really linger, although I generally use it on my legs and I don’t really sniff those too much, LOL!

And it’s true: I can go “no-lo” after using this scrub; the oils moisturize my legs and I pat them dry so they retain the hydration!

Coconut Body Scrub is $11.95 for 5 oz and $16.95 for 8 oz.

Almond Body Scrub

I like using the Almond Body Scrub on my legs and my body. Especially after my Sunday long run. There’s something so pampering about this after a hot run in summer!

It smells lovely, but again, it’s not overpowering and it doesn’t linger much. You can see bits of almonds in the scrub, which I find cool.

This is also very hydrating.

Almond Body Scrub is $11.95 for 5 oz and $16.95 for 8 oz.

Green Tea Facial Scrub

I was most nervous to try the Green Tea Facial Scrub, which is designed to reduce inflammation caused by sun damage, and green tea serves as an antibacterial and anti-inflammation agent in general. Green tea is a potent antioxidant that protects against free radial damage.

I have been using this scrub at least once or twice a week since receiving it, and I love it. While it feels rougher than Lush Ocean Salt – which has been my facial scrub for a while now – I can notice that after using it, my skin is calmer. If I use it on Sunday afternoon or evening, my face is not as red as usual on Monday morning.

And it’s definitely moisturizing, but it does not clog my pores. I don’t need moisturizer after this. I actually find that my skin feels like it has a coating of greasy moisture on it after I use it; I pat my face dry and within a half hour to an hour, my skin has absorbed the hydration and it’s just simply moisturized. My skin must be so thirsty!

Green Tea Facial Scrub is $16.95 for 5 oz.

Final Thoughts, where to buy

Among the brand’s other facial scrubs are:

  • Avocado
  • Coffee
  • Green Tea with Tea Tree
  • Strawberry
  • Cucumber

Other body scrubs include:

  • Coffee
  • Essence (no scent at all)
  • Eucalyptus
  • Green Apple
  • Lavender
  • Pink Grapefruit
  • Pomegranate
  • Rose
  • Strawberry
  • Tangerine
  • Vanilla

They also have seasonal scrubs, like Candy Cane, Gingerbread, Lemonade, Lilac, Lime, Cranberry, Chocolate, Peach, Pumpkin, Raspberry and Sugar and Spice.

You can purchase the scrubs online through Simple Sugars, but you can also find the brand at 540 Destination Maternity stores across the country.

I want to try the Coffee Facial Scrub, because of the redness-reducing properties!

Have you heard of or tried Simple Sugars?! What do you think?! Which one would you love?!

    Hi,

    I have eczema on my face and arms most of the time which ones do you recommend to try out.

    Besides eczema I have really sensitive skin.

  • Abby

    I have bad acne and the occasional flame up, would these work to calm it down? I have tried so many facial scrubs but none of them do any good. Any recommendations?

  • http://www.kelliegonzo.com/ kelliegonzo

    I want to try these but I’ve never been super impressed with a scrub so I’m torn. I would like to try the strawberry facial scrub.

    • BeautyJudy

      These scrubs are very much more hydrating than any scrub I’ve used in the past. I lie. There is a scrub I used from Sulu NYC but these are different, and faster.

    I like the sound of the strawberry one. I get why scrubs come in jars but I really do hate it. I need to start keeping a wooden spoon in my shower or something.

    • BeautyJudy

      OOOH! These COME WITH A SPOON! :)

    I use masques more often than scrubs, though I do like them. I like the sound of the tea tree one, even though it’s marketed to men! I need help with my pimples!

    • BeautyJudy

      I’m the opposite! Lol I always forget about my mask, but keep scrubs in the shower so they’re always there!
