Simple Sugars Body Scrub. Simply Scrumptious!
Simple Sugars is simply great! The product is decadent without breaking the bank and the back story is just — wow!
This company was started by an 11-yr-old girl named Lani Lazzari in 2005. The idea originated one year when Lani’s mom wanted the family to have a “simple” Christmas, gifting each other with simple handmade items. Lani (along with several other family members) have very sensitive skin. Because of this, and her issues finding products that helped soothe her skin, Lani decided to make a sugar scrub. She did some research and ended up creating a simple skin scrub using sugar as the main exfoliant, along with noncomedogenic oils and antioxidant-rich botanicals.
Ms. Lazarri received such positive feedback from family and others who received the scrub as a gift that she decided to continue making the product and selling it to them. She made her first batches of scrubs in the kitchen of her family’s home. As her business took off, she graduated to a lab in the basement, requiring the installation of work tables, shelves, linoleum flooring and a sink. Her business has outgrown her basement lab, facilitating at least two moves to larger spaces, and seems poised to keep on growing for the foreseeable future.
Take a closer look at the packaging below. I couldn’t help but be very impressed by the assertions of natural ingredients used to make the scrub. Many of the ingredients listed are accompanied by an asterisk (*) indicating that they are organic in nature.
I received Simple Sugars Vanilla Grapefruit Body Scrub to sample and review. The scrub arrived enclosed in the cute box above with that really pretty purple ribbon around it, and included the cutest little spoon to scoop the scrub from the container.
Simple Sugars scrubs cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize in one easy step with no additional lotion or moisturizer necessary. They call it “Going No-LO.” (#GONOLO)
Ms. Lazzari and her company have been featured in various media outlets, including Seventeen, Teen Vogue, Allure, Forbes, Lucky, Entrepreneur, as well as an appearance on ABC’s “Shark Tank,” during which Ms. Lazzari secured funding for her fledgling company from businessman, Mark Cuban. Since her appearance on Shark Tank in 2013, sales have remained high and her business continues to grow. Ms. Lazzari is only 19 years old and already a very successful business woman.
Since founding Simple Sugars, the product line has grown to include 35 varieties of body scrub (including seasonal scents), 7 facial scrubs, a foot scrub and a wide variety of gift package options. Also available is a men’s line of products, called Smooth for Men, which offers 4 body scrubs, 3 facial scrubs, and a foot scrub. Product prices range from $11.95-$30 for individual products and $20-80 for gift packages.
I personally cannot wait to try the Strawberry Body Scrub, Coconut Body Scrub and Raspberry Body Scrub. Also very interesting, being that summer is here, is the Sun Scrub (pictured below).
My family spends a lot of time outdoors and at the pool in the summertime, not to mention a near-yearly pilgrimage back to Destin, Florida (where I used to live). After sun relief is definitely something I have on my mind this time of the year, so I intend to order a couple of the large tubs of Sun Scrub, for sure.
All in all, I really love this product. It’s simple, it’s good for your skin (no matter what type of skin you have), there are LOTS of options for different scents and it’s affordable. Definitely please do check out the Simple Sugars website, including the Smooth for Men products. I am bookmarking the site and pinning it to my Pinterest page so I don’t lose track of it!!!
If you have tried this product, or if you try it based on this glowing recommendation, please come back and let me know your thoughts.
