Delicious Smellin' Cucumber Melon Sugar Scrub from Mound City Soap *Review and #Giveaway* US 4/10

I am so excited to share this soap shop I found on Etsy!!! Mound City Soap will blow your senses!!
 About Mound City Soap 
(info taken directly from their Etsy page)
Mound City Soap Company was founded on the idea that beauty products can be fun, inexpensive, and most importantly, handmade! We specialize in soaps and other body products that not only smell yummy, but are fun to use and good for your skin. Our soaps are perfect favors for wedding and baby showers, hostess gifts, gift baskets or for a special treat just for yourself. 

 I was blessed to receive their Cucumber Melon Sugar Scrub to review. The second I popped open the container, my nose filled with cucumber melon aroma...the scent was so strong and delicious, I wanted to take a bite. But I didn't...I decided to use this scrub as it is supposed to be used for a better after effect.
This scrub is cubed in approximate 1 square inch pieces. Each cube is intended for one use. To use, simply wet the cube and crush it slowly as you create a lather and apply to your dry-skin areas.

I used just half a cube for each use because I felt it was enough for my dry areas. During the winter season, my skin is dryer than usual. I applied the scrub to my arms, legs and feet~my dry areas. On the underside of my forearms, I have very dry skin with red patches(I guess from irritation?). I have tried several lotions on a daily basis, only to find temporary relief.  Since I started using this sweet smelling scrub, I have noticed a dramatic decrease in itch and the red patches are gone as well. The scrub leaves a long lasting sweet scent on my skin too.

My 6 year old daughter loves this scrub too. It's a great treat for skin of all ages!

 The sugar and the almond oil work together to create silky smooth skin. The sugar removes dead skin and the almond oil nourishes and moisturizes. On top of all that goodness...it smells awesome! No wonder this scent is among the most popular at Mound City Soaps!

For those of you with dry skin, or anyone who wants to treat their skin the way it deserves, give this scrub a try! This scrub is also available in Mango scent and Orange Pineapple scent! Yummm!
