Comments: I love the products from FNWL but this scrub was nasty. It had a strange smell that the FO did not mask very well. It was very oily had to add a lot more sugar. Would not order this again. Very disappointed.
FNWL Response: Hi Denise. We're sorry that you didn't enjoy this kit. This recipe does have a loose texture, but adding extra salt or omitting a portion of the oil is a great way to customize it to your liking. Fruit Seed Oils, like Black Raspberry Seed Oil, have a slightly acidic aroma due to their high concentration of fatty acids. The Fragrance Oil and Coconut Oil offset that aroma but may not mask it completely. If you use the recipe again I would suggest omitting the Black Raspberry Seed Oil or swapping it for something odorless like Fractionated Coconut Oil.

Comments: I really like the scrub itself and appreciate the convenience of the kit. However, taking one star off because I think $20 is a little over priced for such a small amount. Also, be careful with the alkanet powder as it did come off and color my towels after my shower. I could wash the towels and the stains off, however.

Comments: I also love most everything about this scrub, however, as mention in another post, it is a little too liquid.

Comments: This was great! I found it to be a bit too much liquor but none the less great! Smells yummy too!
FNWL Response: Hi Donna, we're delighted that you liked our Black Raspberry Salt Scrub. However, we'd appreciate clarifying that there is no liquor in the kit.
"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
