You know those cute little scrub cubes you might have seen on Instagram for several years one? Oh, I am sure you know which ones I am talking you. They are small and colourful and come in either bottles or jars and would make the absolute perfect gift to any body care lover? If you really have no idea what I am talking about, I am going to put a photo down below. However, I am sure you have seen the cubes at least once on your feed. They were insanely popular a while back.
I was also really keen on trying the Juice Cleanse Exfoliating Cubes from Harper+Ari. They looked so cute and good enough to eat. However, they were hard to come by in the UK. This built up expectations quite a bit. In the end, I managed to get myself some through the FabFitFun subscription service (you can learn more about this service here).
When I finally got them, I was super excited to try the Juice Cleanse Exfoliating Sugar Cubes. You can imagine! However, despite the cute appearance and all that, the cubes were nothing like I imaged they would be like. I honestly hoped that they would be soft, sort of like gum or even chocolate truffles. They were not. The cubes tend to be quite hard. The inside might be a bit gummy, but not enough. You can press on them, but they are just still to hard to use.
Now that I have used a couple of jars of this product, I can say that the only method to soften these cubes up is by placing them under running water for around 30 seconds. You can place them as is. They do tend to soften a bit and thus making them way easier to use. Otherwise, they can feel a bit too rough on the skin. Now, no one really wants that.
I still like the cubes even after all this time, but they are no longer a priority. They are definitely super cute and something nice to give as a gift, but using them could definitely be a lot easier. I would not say pass if I were to receive them again, but I am in no hurry to buy them either. If you want to read a full review from nearly two years, from when I first used the cubes, you can find one here.
As for those who are wondering why I started talking about these cubes again now, well for one I am just about to finish my last jar. However, I also received several inquires and thought it would be easier to share my thoughts and experience in an actual blog post.
Have you ever tried anything from Harper+Ari?
