PRODUCT REVIEW | SODA & CO SUGAR SCRUB & LIP BALM*




I feel like it's been so long since I have done a product review so I am super excited to share this with you today! Not just because it's been a while but also because it's a product that I have been really keen to try out! 

I always love to give a bit of a background about companies before getting into the product review and that info always comes best 'straight from the horses mouth', so here's what their website says about Soda & Co: 

'SODA & Co reflects a fun, fresh and positive lifestyle without having to sacrifice natural goodness. SODA & Co will not only change the way you look, feel and think about what you put on your skin, it will enable you to do so in a refreshingly colourful way!

Made in Melbourne, Australia, SODA & Co uses only the finest natural ingredients, is proudly nut oil free and never test on animals.
SODA & Co believes that being natural doesn't have to mean bland or boring. At SODA & Co colour is everything. Our products are a reflection of all things good for you whilst being fun and upbeat.'
Check, check, check! You can already see just from the packaging that these products look amazing. Soda & Co definitely get a big A+ for their packaging! From the logo to the fresh and fun colours and even a tiny rubber duckie in the box (see instagram photo), they have got it down pat! How do the products rate though? 
ORANGE SPLASH SUGAR SCRUB
'Treat your skin to the uplifting goodness of this tantalizing 2 in 1 sugar scrub. Enriched with Jojoba and Vitamin E this scrub will naturally help restore and refresh your skin. Not only will it leave your skin smelling sweet - the zesty orange scent will be sure to brighten your day!'
The ingredients: Sucrose, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Sodium Chloride (Australian Sea Salt), Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Glycerin, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Potassium Sorbate, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Vanilla Planifolia Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil.
As soon as I received this scrub I couldn't wait to try it. I didn't want to shower at the time so I decided I would just try it on my hands first. I had fun scooping this sugary orange goodness out of the tub and rubbing between my hands and enjoyed the sweet scent of fresh oranges. 
When I washed it off my first impression was 'uh oh, I don't think I like it' because it left my hands feeling greasy! But of course this is a BODY SCRUB not a hand scrub so I didn't let that make up my mind. 
Finally when I had a shower I remembered to take in my Soda & Co Orange Splash BODY scrub to give it a proper whirl. 
Hello orange splash bathroom! My bathroom literally smelt like an orange popsicle!!! Devine!! 
I used this scrub after I shaved my legs and had no trouble spreading & massaging around. I have applied this with both a exfoliating glove as well as bare hands and both works great! Unlike other scrubs I have tried this product doesn't end up all over the shower floor, which means none goes to waste!
Once I stepped out of the shower and dried off, the 'greasy feeling' I felt when used on my hands ended up being pure smoothness on my freshly shaved legs! You will not need to moisturise after using this scrub! 
If you aren't use to oil based products then this may seem greasy to you at first but be assured that the oils sink into the skin and leave your skin feeling supple and luxurious.
As you can tell by the lack of product in the photos (sorry), I love the orange splash body scrub! It has become an essential part of my beauty regime and can't wait to try the other scents, especially the mint burst. 
This scrub is $22.95 on the Soda & Co website with FREE SHIPPING within Australia on all body scrubs! 
Other scents available are mint burst and pink lemonade. 
PINK LEMONADE LIP BALM 
'Soda & Co Pink Lemonade Lip Balm with Jojoba will soften and revive your lips with the sweet and uplifting natural scent of Pink Lemonade.'

Ingredients: Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Citrus Paradis (Pink Grapefruit) Oil, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Vanilla Planifolia Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E).
I've mentioned how much I love the cute packaging but I need to mention how much I love practical packaging! When I saw this little aluminium pot I was worried because while I love 'Lush' lip balms I absolutely hate the pots because I can never get the lid off. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Soda & Co lip tubs actually screw off! This may seem unimportant but it makes life so much easier and makes me more inclined to take out with me to use on the go! 
The balm looks very hard but because it's oil based, the heat of your finger tip helps to melt the product making it effortless to pick up some product to use on your lips. 
Don't let the oil scare you though because it definitely does not feel oily on the lips! This balm is nourishing, light and smooth and leaves my lips feeling hydrated for hours.

The scent is a very, very subtle sweet lemony smell. 
This balm is $8.95 on the Soda & Co website
Other scents available are orange splash, mint burst and natural cocoa. 
OTHER PRODUCTS BY SODA & CO

As you can tell I am thoroughly enjoyed using Soda & Co products and cannot wait to get my hands on some more. 
Hope you liked this post.
