Gardener's Dream Cream & Body Scrub: Review

Disclaimer: Products featured were provided for review.
Hey everyone, today I have two awesome products from Gardener's Dream, a British Columbian based brand that specializes in aromatherapy bath and body products. To read more about the Gardener's Dream Cream and the Gardener's Dream Body Scrub, click.......
The Gardener's Dream Cream ($18.50 for 90mL) is a body and hand cream made from essential oils of lavender, cinnamon leaves, peppermint, eucalyptus, and rosemary. It alleviates cracking, itching, and roughness. I have tried it on my hands and I love it as a hand cream. It has a rich formulation but it is not greasy or heavy and absorbs very quickly. The scent is very minty and invigorating, quite different compared to your traditional vanilla/fruity scents.

Gardener's Dream Body Scrub ($17.95 for 180mL) is hands down the most unique body scrub I have ever tried! The scrub contains ground pumice stone particles for exfoliation and essential oils of lavender, rosemary, eucalyptus that helps with circulation. The scrub smells very minty, just like the cream. During the initial few seconds this scrub was on the skin, I didn't think it was anything special, but within a minute the scrub started giving off a really cooling and invigorating sensation to the skin, something I have never experienced before. The effect is very strong and long lasting, I could still feel it five or six minutes after I came out of the shower.
I see this as the perfect body scrub to use in the morning as a pick-me-up because it really wakes up the body. Also during the the hot weather of summer months, the cooling sensation would be such an awesome addition to bath/shower times.

Overall, I am so impressed by both of these products from Gardener's Dream that I wish I had discovered them earlier. The body scrub is a must-try for any shower/scrub enthusiasts!

Gardener's Dream products are available online and in stores (Canada & US).
