While walking around the exhibition area i was suddenly hit with a mix of very pleasant smells. I let my nose guide me, and so i found myself in front of the Bath Kandy stand.
Now, Bath Kandy is the first handcrafted, food-inspired, bath & body store in Nigeria. All their products are made of food *as in they are infused with real food ingredients* or inspired by food. Their candles looks like Cupcakes or Ice cream, some of their soaps look like Cupcakes......as in you have to stare at them for a long time and also touch them to be certain that they are not indeed ice-cream or cupcakes. Oh, and they smell 'ah-may-zing'!
I bought the 'Garri scrub' which is made of real Garri. It is a very moisturizing exfoliating scrub, and it is made of Almonds, Rice, Cocoa Butter, Garri *of course!* and a special blend of oils and butters. They must have done their homework while creating the blend of those oils and butters because the smell........oh the smell!
My word! I haven't smelled anything this divine in a long time. The way i love the smell of this scrub ehn.....i can't explain, it just makes me happy!
When i bought it, i gave it to some ladies i was chatting with at the exhibition to catch a whiff of it, and then we stood there for a while trying to describe the smell. We kept passing it to each other, sniffing it and thinking of words to use, but we failed *loool!*. You know that pleasant look you have on your face when you smell something really good...something you like? Yup, that's the look we all had on our faces.
The first time i used it, the whole bathroom and bedroom was filled with the heavenly smell! Mish came into the room and said,
"Oh Mummy, something smells really, really good!"
And i was like "I know!!!"
HOW I USE MY 'GARRI SCRUB'
First, of all, the 'Luminous exfoliating bar' is NOT a soap. It is a body scrub, so don't expect it to foam and lather.
Second of all, i use it only at night time because it's a night time bath treat.
So, i bathe and scrub with my normal body soap and sponge first, and then i rinse off.
Then i proceed to rub the Garri scrub all over my body, and then massage and scrub it in with my hands.
I do this until the Garri bits get really soft, and then i rinse off the Garri leaving my body coated with the layer of oils from the scrub.
Next, i pat the water on my body dry with a towel. I do NOT rub. By so doing, the oils are left intact on my skin overnight. No, the oil is not overwhelming and sticky...it's more like a light film, and after a little while, you don't feel oily anymore. It's just very moisturizing, and i don't mind it at all.
I love the way my body feels soft after i'm done using the scrub. It also leaves me feeling sensual and very relaxed, and i always look forward to the next use.
I got 3 full uses out of this bar.
When i unwrapped the nylon used to wrap it up, the bar began to soften and melt in my hand, so i had to transfer it into a container for better storage.
