Review: Four Truffles Body Butter and Body Smoother

four_truffles_body_smootherHey everyone, Brittany here. Shannon asked me to begin doing some of my beauty product reviews by video, so here is my inaugural video for A Girl’s Gotta Spa! I kind of got carried away saying “it smells awesome” a lot in this video, but you’ll forgive me, right?

This bath & body review is for Four Truffles. They sent over their Tangerine Lavender Body Butter in their signature keepsake handmade truffle jar and Earth Apple Body Smoother sugar scrub. The Tangerine Lavender scent was pure heaven! Interestingly, the Earth Apple scent smelled like a fruity coconut fragrance to me–but I still loved it!

Check out my video and leave a comment to let me know what you think!  Read more
