Summer and Vine Giveaway

I am all about prepping my skin for the season.  For summer that means getting my skin soft and ready for a fake tan.  I like to bring out the sun dresses and shorts as the weather warms up so I need my skin to be soft and hydrated.  I used to just apply a ton of body lotion until I discovered the amazingness that brown sugar and coconut oil can do.

A few years back I had an amazing treatment in the OC that consisted of a Brown Sugar Scrub.  I totally enjoyed it and used to make the scrub at home.  It was a complete pain and a mess! But, it was super effective at scrubbing off dead skin and moisturizing so my skin would take well to a spray tan.

SO when Summer & Vine contacted me to give their product a try I was beyond excited!  They take the mess and the hassle out of the sugar scrub.  The best part is the Summer and Vine product doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals or gross ingredients!  I am really excited that it is made here in California!  I love supporting my local businesses.  Plus they don’t animal test, and the product is VEGAN !

I like to use it in my shower.  Just scrub up your whole body and let it sit for a bit… like 5 minutes or so and rinse off.  I have super sensitive skin so I just watered it down a bit for a gentler abrasion. No need to moisturize after the coconut oil in the scrub does it for you!

I used this twice last week and my skin is incredibly soft and the dry patches on my upper arms are gone.  There is still a little over half the pouch left.  A little goes a long way!  I feel like I can get 5ish full body scrubs from the pouch.

Surprise!  Each pouch comes with a little gift.  I didn’t realize this until the second use when I reached in for some scrub and pulled out a golden pouch.  It was very Willy Wonka!  Mine had an incredibly cute gold-colored feather lasso necklace!
