Recently, I featured the Makes Scents Natural Spa Line in my 12 Indie Beauty Picks: Products You’ll Love at the recommendation of my friend Shannon from A Girl’s Gotta Spa. She raved about the products after trying them at a spa, and I was really, really excited when they sent me a few of their citrus scented products to try out. (This is when I admit that anything citrus is always my favorite and I am a big sucker for it.)
The scrub, the scrub… OMG, this is amazing. I tried out Citrus Grove, which is a combination of grapefruit, orange, lemon and lime. It’s mostly grapefruit with a bit of orange, and very fresh smelling. It really smells like you have fruit with you there in the shower. It isn’t too sweet, it’s isn’t overwhelming, it really is just the right amount of citrus. The scrub has just the right amount of grit not greasy. I want to use it every day!
I also tried out the body butter, which is a thick lotion. It isn’t greasy and sinks in easily. It has the same amazing scent as the scrub, though a bit more subtle.
The lip balm was a little waxy, but less so than Burt’s Bees (for the record, I do like waxy balms, they’re a good base for lip gloss). I have the Pink Grapefruit. OMG (again), yes, it is just like Pink Grapefruit and I love it! It s hydrating and feels good on my lips.
Overall, I loved everything I tried out from Makes Scents. They have seasonal scents (I’m pretty sure they took pity on me and sent me the Citrus because I may have mentioned how much I like Citrus. A lot. But I think that’s a summer one), you might want to try out the Pumpkin Sorbet scent. It might be even better than a #PSL.
