Not long after, I received an invitation from Because Inc. - the company behind The Cream Factory - to visit their office so I can take a look at their complete product line, and get first dibs on their latest product offering. I had to politely decline the invitation since I have way too much mommy duties to attend to, and going all the way to Pasig on a school day is just impossible for me.
Despite that, Because Inc., the kind people that they are, sent me a sample of their latest product anyway. Big thanks to my friend Sylvia for claiming this in my behalf. :) It's a body scrub that comes in a 255 gram tub. And they aptly called it 'Scrub-in-a-Tub'.

A handwritten note, with a pretty penmanship to boot, came along with it.

There are actually three variants of the Scrub-in-Tub, each variant with two 'flavors'. All in all, there are six kinds of Scrub-in-a-Tubs, which I have listed below.
Salty. Contains fine rock salt crystals for deep exfoliation.
Comes in Seaweed, the revitalizing ingredient; and Witch Hazel, the rejuvenating ingredient.
Creamy. Contains walnut sprinkles to buff away skin impurities.
Comes in Honey, the germ-killing ingredient; and Jojoba, the clarifying ingredient.
Yummy. Contains bits of cocoa beans to awaken the skin.
Comes in Almond, the detoxifying ingredient; and Cinnamon, the purifying ingredient.
This time around, cinnamon was my ingredient of choice. This popular spice has many benefits that go beyond cooking, and that includes healing wounds, treating acne and eczema, and petering out fine lines and wrinkles.

Also, I may not have mentioned this before, but I'm a big fan of cinnamon rolls. I love them more than doughnuts, actually. And back then, every time my husband would pass by the Cinnabon store at SLEX, he'd make sure to bring me home a box (sometimes two, lol).

And so taking a bath with this body batter feels like walking inside a Cinnabon store - with the flavorful scent of cinnamon lingering on your skin for hours.

This product is so addicting, you'd want to bathe with it everyday. Not recommended though, as experts say that you should exfoliate twice a week at the most. So what I do is use this at the the start of the week (which is Sunday), bathe with the Bath Creams for the next three days, and then use the Scrub-in-a-Tub again the following day (that would be Thursday).
Now considering the size of the product, and my frequency of use, it'll probably take me two or three months before I empty out the tub. So even if you're paying Php 699 for a 9-ounce tub, you're getting your money's worth since you're feeding your skin with nothing but the good stuff.
What I love:
- The super yummy scent that brings me memories of when the husband and I used to date, hahaha!
- Thick and creamy; just a little goes a long way.
- Exfoliating particles are tiny, and they don't feel harsh on the skin.
- Six yummy variants to choose from, catering to different needs of the skin.
- Made with natural ingredients.
- Contains no parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, or any other harmful chemicals.
- Not tested on animals.
What you might not like:
- Products that come in tubs are usually prone to contamination, especially if you're sharing with other people in your household. Remember to use a spatula for this product, which you will have to buy separately.
