Lemon Cheesecake || Sugar Queen Body Scrub

After long anticipation, I'm finally writing up a blog post after 2 months of no writing. I wont promise that i'll be posting weekly at some times, but i do only post when i enjoy writing up a post rather than having the need to post just for the sake of it. Since i am back there is nothing better than to come forth with a review on a new product i have tried and of course loved!

You may have seen some bloggers posting reviews of this and I have not seen any of them not liking this so far. Coming in a variety of different scents such as sugar cookie, coconut & lime, peppermint, pina colada and espresso. It just has scents you would be well-known with. The scrubs are made with coconut oil, sugar, essential oils or fragrances so it is comforting knowing there isnt any nasty things lurking in these especially with store bought scrubs.

I was lucky enough to be sent the Lemon Cheesecake scrub and receiving this one was like fate to me. 
If you know me well, you would know my favourite colour is yellow and i do have an obsession with lemons and with cheesecakes, they are one of my favourite types of cakes!. Coincidence or what?! 
Getting on to the scent of this, it did confuse me at first as there was a strong coconut scent which I did later on find out about to get the confusion straight but aside from that it has a somewhat citrus scent to it but also a biscuity smell to it like when cookies are fresh out of the oven. But i found that it did sometimes remind me of lamingtons due to the coconut scent lingering.

I've tried this for a couple of weeks and decided to not moisturise my legs during that time to see how well it leaves my legs feeling. As the colder weather has approached here in Melbourne which does mean super dry legs in my case, I did use this daily with some second days not using it at all.
First time using it did leave my legs feeling tingly after but i found with constant use that I got used to that sensation. It did leave my legs feeling smooth during the shower as the coconut oil is a great skin moisturiser. From the looks of my legs today after a couple weeks use and no moisturising, it actually did pretty damn well in removing the dry skin that i usually get every winter. I mean i do have some dry spots here and there but nothing major that makes me want to have an emergency body lotion at hand or be insecure with having my legs show in public (anyone else like that too?!). 
The downside to this would be that it is stored in a jar so for those super hygienic people or people with long nails, you may want to have a scooper close by. As I do find that if you arent careful you can accidentally get some water in the jar or get some sugar underneath your nails if they are long.
But aside from that it is pretty easy to open up the jar without it slipping. 
But I will say that i was sent a sample size so im unsure about the packaging with the full sized jar. 
The scrub has been used halfway now and i have a feeling it will last about 1-3 months if i just use it 1-2 times a week.
I absolutely adore the handmade touch with the twine and handwriting on the tag when i first got this sample and I will be purchasing more of the scrubs once i use up this one!
