On Soap, Loofahs & Near-Death Experiences: A Review Of Code Skincare
They also sent me the most bomb loofah, a charcoal infused one! Also, rabbit trail, let’s just establish how fun the word loofah is, it just sounds like a good time. Okay, I’ll focus on the matter at hand now...
My personal favorite overall was the Rose Fruit Body Scrub. The scrub gave me definite sugar-scrub vibes, kind of like that lovely Elements of Aliel coffee scrub I tested a while back. The almond oil and grapefruit essential oil combo was sweet smelling without being overpowering.
I used the scrub on rougher skin (knees and elbows) and after a few uses I could tell a difference in that they were softer! The catch-22 with this (and possibly why they advise just using once a week or so) is that on areas where the skin was already smooth (my shoulders), I felt like the scrub left a slight coating, even after rinsing. Not a big deal though, obviously.
The soap was a whole different story. I struggle so hard with soap, you guys. I opened the box, and it was fine. Cute, no problems. As soon as I got in the shower, I almost died. It was so slippery and kept flying everywhere, ricocheting off the floors and walls. But I guess my lack of soap skills is not really the point of this article—the soap is great.
I personally loved the smell of the pink-tinted round Rosin soap, but I found the brick-shaped Vanilla Skye sudsed (is that a word? It sounds okay, right?) up much better and worked great. I didn’t find that either of the soap bars left any residue or oil on my skin.
The Rosin Clay soap is made with Rose Kaolin Clay and Rose Essential Oils, and Code says it’s “diva-lishly mixed with shea butter and almond oil.” Hey, that’s cute, they like making up words, too! We were made for each other. The Rosin Clay soap is made gentle for your face, and the Vanilla Skye soap (lavender and coconut oil) is for your body. I have no complaints about either.
So, that’s that! If you check out my Insta @awesomejordy, you’ll find an unboxing of the stuff they sent me so you can get a good idea of how big the products are, etc.
Also, Code Skincare offers a gift set that includes the Rose Fruit Scrub, Rosin Clay Soap and a loofah, so if you want to try everything that might be the way to go! BRB, dashing to go order one to stash for my bestie’s birthday. Happy scrubbing!
