Salted Caramel is my all time favorite gelato flavor. Done well, it’s amazing–sweet and salty and so, so refreshing (and addictive). So whenever I come across bath products scented like salted caramel, I get very excited. Uptown Soap Co. has a line of products in the Salted Caramel scent that they recently sent over and they now have a place of honor in my shower (also the packaging! Just look at it).
The line has four products: an Eau de Parfum, an organic body cream, a luxury bubble bath and a micro body scrub. I tried everything but the bubble bath and am totally in love with them. The body cream has a great consistency to it–thick, but spreads easily, and it absorbs instantly without leaving any greasiness behind. And the salted caramel fragrance is strong and delicious. I’ve been using it as a hand cream because even hours later, I can still smell it when my hands are near my nose. Luckily for me, the fragrance is an instant pick me up. The body scrub is made with sea salt and helps keep my dry summer skin flake-free, but it isn’t harsh like some other sea salt scrubs I’ve tried. (And again, the fragrance is strong, so a little goes a long way). After I’ve used these two, I layer on the Eau de Parfum. I love that it’s a sweet smelling spray that doesn’t leave a chemical-y scent behind– rather, it just leaves me smelling like I rolled around in my favorite ice cream. (And how fun would that be on a hot day?) Uptown Soap Co. also has some other scents that I’m dying to try. How yummy does Black Honey sound? You can check out their entire line at www.uptownsoap.com.
