Review: Haus of Gloi Depravity Sugar Exfoliant

I'm going to apologize in advance for not putting up the rest of the Valentine's Day Haus of Gloi collection. I wasn't too thrilled with the rest of the collection so I wasn't dying to review them all. Either way, I thought I'd review a scent from the regular Haus of Gloi line as you can get that year round!

Depravity is described as:
Pure corruption: clove, nutmeg lurk amongst the sweetest offerings of coconut, on a bed of rich golden amber, laden with dustings of sandalwood and spilled wine.

For those of you scared by the notes, don't be. This is a very light slightly smoky wine scent. It's very delicate. I actually wasn't sure of what it smelled like when I first started using it as I had forgotten the scent description. To me, it smelled slightly fruity with a hint of spiciness. If you like these sort of scents but don't like something super strong, at least in the sugar scrub, Depravity would be something to definitely try. I bought the sample 1oz size at $2 so it doesn't exactly break the bank as is. The full 7.5oz size retails at $10 - very reasonable.
Now for the review of the product itself. I'll cut to the chase and say that I prefer the Bubbling Scrub formulation. The Sugar Exfoliant is definitely more scrubby even under a steady stream of water, however, it left a slightly greasy film on my skin and I had to wash with soap after wards. This is not a big deal but I love how the Bubbling Scrub double duties as a body wash. Thankfully, most scents can be purchased in both scrub formulations so I'll just opt for the Bubbling Scrub in future orders!

@Joanna: Ooh! I'll have to add Moon Dog to one of my future orders. I'm trying to be good though as I have a whole box of Haus of Gloi stuff to get through. I need to try the spring line before it disappears though (plotting next order)!

@PCS: If I were you, I'd try the Bubbling Scrub. Not quite as scrubby but less greasy as it foams up and washes away.
