You can also sprinkle it on your sheets to keep them fresh. The scent is really unusual. It’s vanilla with jasmine. I’m not really a floral girl but I like this. It’s kind of spicy. There is also a vanilla pod in each little tub! It does leave the skin lightly scented for a few hours, but it’s not too strong.

Overall I enjoy this product and, while it’s certainly not a necessity, it’s a nice treat.

Are you a Lush girl?
