LAVANILA Vanilla Bean Creamy Body Scrub and The Healthy Deodorant in Pure Vanilla | A Delicious Review

Yesterday I went to the beautiful wedding of a very close friend, and therefore I treated my beauty routine with a special added level of pampering. I only chose to use products that I really, really love, and wanted to savor the aromas as I got ready for this special day.

I am a huge fan of LAVANILA, and selected to use two of their products that are among my favorites.  Since I was wearing perfume, I was careful to avoid their body products with longer-lingering fragrances, and their The Healthy Deodorant in Pure Vanilla and Vanilla Bean Creamy Body Scrub were the perfect choices for me. If you love vanilla, then these are two products that you really need to smell on your next trip to Sephora, because they are absolutely delectable.
LAVANILA Vanilla Bean Creamy Body Scrub ($40.00 for 7.5 oz. from LAVANILA and Sephora): This is the creamiest and most delicious vanilla scrub imaginable. Unlike many body scrubs, that contain a variety of oils, this one isn't in the least bit greasy, and it does not leave the bottom of your shower covered in an oil slick. Instead, it has an ultra-creamy texture, that resembles a body cream infused with exfoliating particles, and the heavenly rich and warm scent of vanilla beans. It effortlessly removes dead skin cells and leaves skin soft, smooth, supple and wonderfully moisturized. 

According to LAVANILA,

The vanilla bean has been used for years to protect, condition, and repair the skin. The essences of this plant are rich in polyketones and polyphenols that work together to deliver youthful-looking skin texture and powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. This ultra-creamy, non-greasy body scrub is formulated with crushed Madagascar vanilla beans blended with whipped shea butter and five nourishing essential oils. It whisks away dry, dead skin cells—revealing soft, hydrated, glowing skin. 

Made without: Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates.

Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid (Vegetable), Glycerin (Vegetable), Stearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate Se, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Shell Powder, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Juglans Regia (Walnut) Shell Powder, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Phenoxy-Ethanol, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Vanilla Planifolia Seed Powder, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Calophyllum Tacamahaca (Tamanau) Seed Oil, Beeswax/ Cera Alba/Cire D’abeille, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate), Triisostearin, Niacin, Polysorbate 20, Polysorbate 60, Botanical Fragrance Blend.
LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant in Pure Vanilla ($14.00 for 1.7 oz. from LAVANILASephora and Dermstore): I am a longstanding proponent of healthier deodorants, and have been using them since I was a teenager. Though I have occasionally used mainstream deodorants, I do prefer to avoid the chemicals. LAVANILA makes wonderful healthy deodorants that are effective and smell wonderful (though they also make an unscented variant for sensitive skin). Their Pure Vanilla scent is currently my very favorite because it smells utterly scrumptious, and offers long-lasting protection.

According to LAVANILA,

LAVANILA The Healthy Deodorant is a revitalizing, natural way to keep underarm odors subdued. Essential oils soothe as antioxidants neutralize free radicals. Beta glucan technology defends against odor and nourishes your skin. Aluminum-free, so it won't stain clothes or cause rashes.

Select Ingredients:

Beta-Glucan Technology: Promotes healthy skin and fights odor with a complex of powerful antioxidants, anti-bacterial agents, and polysaccharides.

Goji Berry: Provides powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action, 21 essential minerals, and 18 amino acids.

Japanese Honeysuckle: Acts as a natural preservative and an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent.

Lichen Lemon and Tea Tree Oils: Prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria; provide safe, long-lasting protection sans harsh chemicals or alcohol.

Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Juice, Water), Propanediol (Corn Derived), Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Sodium Stearate (Coconut Derived), Silica, Carrageenan (Seaweed Derived), Stearyl Behenate (Coconut Derived), Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon Peel Oil), Inulin (Artichoke Derived), Saccharomyces Ferment, Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide (Sugar Derived), Yeast Beta Glucan, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Valeriana Officinalis Root Extract (Valerian), Hydrastis Canadensis (Goldenseal) Extract, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Lycium Barbarum Fruit Extract (Goji Berry), Botanical Fragrance Blend.
Overall Assessment: If you love vanilla, then these are going to delight you. A+

  1. I hope the wedding was wonderful! I love your description of the scrub. I've gotta make some headway on the ones I already own, but I will try the La Vanilla Scrub in the future. It sounds like heaven. I'm also curious about the LA Vanilla Deo. I would love to give up the not so great chemicals in mainstream brands but I'm nervous about if they'll work well enough. I should try it and find out

    1. The wedding was absolutely amazing, Allison! It was held at a gorgeous idyllic setting just outside of Malibu in the Santa Monica Mountains, and everything about the day was spectacular!

      This scrub is truly obsession-worthy! From the scent, to the creamy (and non-greasy) consistency– it is perfection! Their deodorants are really wonderful as well, and this one has got to be my favorite of the bunch! I think that this is a line well-worth trying, and I think that deodorants that are more natural are definitely worth trying.
