Sorry I have been MIA. I wanted to make sure that I had a chance to thoroughly test this product before posting about it.
I was recently introduced to a small local Canadian bath company called “Under The Cupboard Potions” by my best friend// sister in law. ((Check her out Here!)) Naturally, with the unicorn phase that has been very popular, she got me an 8oz jar of there “Unicorn Crap”. An 8oz Jar retails for about $12 Canadian. Under The Cupboard Potions Facebook page for all those interested.
Now anyone who knows me knows that my skin is super sensitive. That is the main reason I wanted to test this out before posting about it. As you can see the 8oz jar comes full to the top and the bit that I have used is a week’s worth. The product is marketed as a whipped body wash and shaving cream.
Let me start off with the basics. Smell is labelled as bubble gum and rainbows. Now I don’t know what rainbows smell like, it is definitely bubble gum scented and possibly a candy sent, somewhere around skittles and bubblegum. The company offers a range of scents this one is specific to the “Unicorn Crap”.
The texture of this is very similar to a whipped body butter, very light and creamy. If you can picture a thick whipped cream you are picturing this. Thankfully despite its sweet smell, it is not sticky or overly strong once it hits the skin and a little bit goes a long way.
This product does not lather up like traditional body wash. You will get a small leather (see photo below), however, you will still feel clean and it rinses away without a residue.
Now I tend to break out from a lot of things so after my shower with this the first time I gave it 24 hours and waited. To my surprise I noticed two things, firstly I did not break out, I wasn’t itchy and my skin didn’t feel “tight”. Secondly, I didn’t need a moisturizer right way. Most body washes dry out my skin and I am lathering on moisturizer within a few hours. Now this body had natural oils in it and I think that helped me a lot.
I have been using this daily since and I still have had no sensitivity and surprisingly my skin seems to be staying more hydrated post-shower so I have been going easier on my body lotions. I also have to add it works great as a shaving cream. I am a huge fan of not having to use multiple products, not only does this save me time but it saves me money. With how moisturizing it is I have not had an issue with shaving. It doesn’t give me any kind of razor burn or irritation on my skin post shave.
If you are looking for Canadian made bath products and also want to support a small business I highly recommend checking them out. I will be buying a few more of there products in the future and hopefully, I will get a chance to review them for you.
