What It Is:
Haus of Gloi Bubbling Scrub in Snow Wolf from the Yule ’12 Collection
Why This Should Be in Your Bag:
Haus of Gloi is my absolute favorite bath and body brand! They’re an indie company run by husband and wife team, Matt and Britton, and they make amazing body products like scrubs and butters. Their Yule ’12 Collection features a variety of Christmas-inspired scents and I’m giving Snow Wolf a go. The scent description reads “Bristling and prowling, lonesome and haunting. Three howling firs, white frankincense, vanilla bean husk, tainted by droplets of blood cedar.” Sounds amazing!
How To Use It:
They advise that you can use this in the shower, just like a traditional body scrub or leave it by the sink as a nice treat when washing your hands. I prefer the in-shower route myself! The scrub actually lathers up a bit, which is something I don’t often see, so I feel like it’s cleansing while exfoliating. I use it on my arms and torso everyday (it’s that gentle, yet effective!) and my whole body about twice a week.
CC Rating: A+
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: Haus of Gloi is the BEST! Seriously! This scrub is everything I’m looking for. It exfoliates, but doesn’t dry my skin out, cleanses and leaves a light scent. Snow Wolf in particular is amazing. The mix of outdoorsy and spicy scents are cooled down by the vanilla, but I still feel invigorated every time I use it. In the town I’m from, there is a large Finnish population, and when I use Snow Wolf, I feel like I’m back in a sauna!
If you’re not a fan of tree scents (I didn’t know what else to call it!), the Haus has plenty of other for you to choose from in their Yule and regular catalog. My personal faves are Hearth, Troika, Satyr and Peach Mama and run the gamut from gourmand to fruity to spicy!
