Haus of Gloi Bubbling Scrub

Today I got the chance to try Haus of Gloi's Bubbling Scrub scented with Troika [soft milks, almond, oat, coconut, sweet agave nectar, clean white].

This is an emollient body cleanser with organic sugar granules for exfoliation. It is supposed to be vigorously scrubbed on the skin to create lather, but it did not lather too much for me. I'm not a stickler for lathering, so I really couldn't care less about that. What I am a stickler for when it comes to my bath and body products is cleansing and scent.

The granules of sugar dissolve as you use the product, skin becomes softened and the moisturizing cleansing base does its job very well without any irritation. The scent of Troika couldn't be more perfect with this scrub. It only leaves a faint trace of the scent on the skin after you towel off, but throughout the day, I would catch faint whiffs of it on my skin. It's an intoxicatingly soft, clean, milky scent.

Once again, Haus of Gloi delivers an excellent product worthy of hoarding, and a 6 oz jar is only $8. Available in Aether (unscented) and many other scents.


  1. I still haven't ordered yet. But, I am happy that I waited until after reading another review :)

  2. You may want to wait until the 13th, that's when the Spring scents are being released. I'm interested in a couple of them, Milkmaid: [Flushed, but demure. Fresh milk, clean linens, pale musk and pink sweet pea blossom] and Ploughman: [Well worn leather, dirt n' dandelions, carrot, a pinch of tobacco and a light sheen of feral skin musk]. There are also two others.
