Pamper yourself with Sugar Scrubs by Amethy



We mothers usually have little time to ourselves. Even the little time we have not doing anything is spent thinking about what we need to prepare for tomorrow.As a breastfeeding stay at home mom, my "me time" is usually limited to bath time and nap time. Yes, bath time is like a mini vacation while nap time is usually a time-limited bonus.


I cherish my bath time and love pampering myself with body wash and scrubs. Sometimes, I would light an aromatic candle to add to the relaxing ambiance.  I prefer using body wash because it doesn't leave soapy gunk. As for scrubs, I like light scented ones made from natural ingredients. When I have the luxury of time, I use body scrubs a few times each week. Scrubs are mainly for exfoliation or remove the skin of dry skin cells. It is important exfoliate because the build up of these cells can contribute to our skin looking dry and rough.

I recently got a sample of this awesome foot and body  sugar scrub by Amethy called Peppermint Punch. Amethy is short for Amethyst. This is the favorite rock of Shalene (purple pieces) stay at home mom and mommy blogger herself. It is an all natural scrub made of refined sugar, premium peppermint oil, Vitamin E, and other skin-nourishing oils. When I got it, I thought the colors for the packaging were happy and bright but the label needed to pop a bit more. 

The aroma from the peppermint already made me feel relaxed the moment I removed the lid.  I love the scent of peppermint. It is light and soothing.The green sugar crystals also add to this scrub's fresh appeal. 


I usually scrub at the end of a bath.For my foot spa, I scoop out a generous amount of Amethy and scrub in slow circular motions using light to moderate pressure. You need to scrub until the sugar dissolves. After a few minutes, I use a foot file to remove the rough and hard skin on the soles of my feet. I don't know about you but I find having smooth skin as result of all that cleaning quite an achievement.Somehow, it also means scrubbing a lot of  the stress away.




What I love:
all natural
the scent is not too strong
effective as a scrub
shelf life of 1 to 2 months

What needs some improvement:
label needs to stand out more
product/storage details to be placed in packaging

So the next time  you feel stressed and overwhelmed, maybe you just need some Amethy sugar scrub to enjoy your "me time" more. 

And since Valentine's day is just around the corner, maybe you'd like to show some love to your husband and friends by giving it as gifts.

I'd love to have  a lemon and vanilla scented ones too. I hope she develops more scrubs soon!




How bout you? Do you like sugar scrubs? What scent would you like to try?

  7. I so love scrubs, especially with the minty feel and chocolate scent. A friend gave me chocolate-scented scrub and even my son would want to taste it. Ihihi. Your idea of having a luxurious scrubbing time is indeed a perfect me time for us mothers. Enjoy your scrub while I grab some for myself and my mom.
