Andrea Haskins bath and body reviews, Bath and body find, the site for candle loversIntroduction to my Dylan's Candy Bar Cake Batter Ice Cream Sugar Scrub Review:

I'm not even sure how I ran across the Re-Treat line at Dylan's Candy Bar. I'm pretty sure somewhere down the road I was craving some candy while sitting at the computer. Add a little Google in the mix and, well, somehow ended up at Dylan's Candy Bar. Man, oh man, am I glad I did!

Dylan's Candy Bar is a candy store originally based in New York City - literally, a candy store. It's owned by RalphDylan's Candy Bar Piece of Cake bath and body, Bath and body find, the site for bath and body lovers Lauren's daughter, Dylan Lauren.

There is a literal explosion of colors on the website. The decadent bath/body line is called Re-Treat and it was launched in 2008. While there is not a huge selection, what's there looks and sounds absolutely scrumptious. For products you can choose Body Smoothie Lotions, Candy Butter Creams, Candy Lip Savers, Ice Cream Dylan's Candy Bar logo, Bath and body find, the site for candle loversSugar Scrubs and Soda Pop Shower Gels. Signature scent choices are Birthday Cake Batter, Chocolate Bon Bon, Chocolate Cupcake, or Strawberry Licorice. I decided to try a sugar scrub scented in Birthday Cake Batter. Yummmm!

My sugar scrub from Dylan's Candy Bar arrived safe and sound, packaged well. I had very fast turn-around-time. I even had a small lotion sample included. The scent name was identified on an enclosed card, but not on the sample itself. That made it hard to identify the scent or even the company once the sample was separated from the card.

What did my sugar scrub from Dylan's Candy Bar look like?

The packaging was incredibly cute and clever. The container was shaped like a pint of ice cream and had a bright, pink label on front. The Dylan's Candy Bar logo was clearly displayed on front as well as the scent name. There was a picture of a yummy looking birthday cake, completeDylan's Candy Bar Sugar Scrub Review, Bath and body find, the site for candle lovers with lit candles. The back had another pink label demonstrating ingredients and Nutrition Facts information (similar to what you'd see on food product labels). Very clever!

Suggested Servings Per Day: 100% Unlimited. Total Fun Value: 100%. Parabens: 0%. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate: 0%. Propolene Glycol: 0%.

The lid also had a cute identification label and all labels were waterproof (yeah!!).

You have to screw off the lid to get to the good stuff. And man, is it good! This sugar scrub was very creamy and looked a lot like cake batter. Maybe a little thicker than your standard cake batter but very, very close. The scrub was light brown in color.

What did my Birthday Cake Batter Ice Cream sugar scrub smell like?

Here's what the website says about the Birthday Cake Batter scent:

"What is it about the smell of Birthday Cake Batter? Whether it's in our
IceBirthday Cake Batter Ice Cream Sugar Scrub from Dylan's Candy Bar, Bath and body find, the site for bath and body lovers Cream Sugar Scrub or Soda Pop Shower Gel, expect it to leave your skin lightly scented with hints of butter, cream & rich, sugary frosting. There's no licking the spoon with these tempting treats, but the perfume of pastry dough is a pleasure all its own."

This scent was dead-on birthday cake batter. You know - when you're baking a cake and decide to stick your nose in the freshly emptied bowl? Surely everyone does that! This is a "thick" bakery scent that is buttery and rich and full of vanilla flavoring. A wonderful scent that made me hungry just sniffing it.

How did my Birthday Cake Batter Ice Cream sugar scrub from Dylan's Candy Bar perform?

This was a very nice sugar scrub for mild exfoliation, containing jojoba beads and vitamin E. The sugar crystals were very fine and the scrub went on almost silky-like. There was just enough sugar How did I like my sugar scrub from Dylan's Candy Bar? Bath and body find, the site for bath and body loversto be reminded that it was a scrub. I would think this would be a very good every-day kind of sugar scrub. It was loaded with oils and made my skin feel very moisturized while in the shower. My only complaint would be that because the crystals were so fine, I felt I had to keep the water running over my body to completely get the scrub off. This sort of defeated the purpose because with all that washing, a lot of the moisturizing oils went down the drain. But even with that, this was a moisturizing scrub - not drying at all. I still felt very smooth after my shower and didn't have to immediately apply lotion. The scent stayed true while in the shower. I enjoyed the fragrance still on my skin for a few hours afterwards - faint, but present.

Closing to my review:

Dylan's Candy Bar is a fun place to shop. It's a lighthearted and hip website - letting the inner kid in you out. I understand the physical stores are a ton of fun!! The bath/body items here areDylan's Candy Bar Sugar scrub review, Bath and Body find, the site for candle lovers not inexpensive, but I'd say my sugar scrub was definitely worth the money. It lasted through several showers and I am very generous with my scrub use. I consider this a high quality product that is very fun to use, totally yummy, and 100% guilt-free. An indulgence you should cater yourself to every now and again. I myself plan on trying the other products. Oh, and the candy too! ;)

Sweet showers -
