LaLicious Sugar Reef Body Butter and Scrub Review

LaLicious is a delectable line of body products that includes all-natural body soufflé scrubs, body butters, oils, soaps and lip butters. All of the products are paraben free and come in nine scrumptious scents including: Vanilla, Coconut Cream, Lily Mango, Passionfruit Lime, Island Guava, Tahitian Flower, Peppermint, Sugar Reed and Sugar Kiss.

The story of entrepreneur Jessica Kernochan gives us all hope of achieving our dreams! What began as a fun idea for Christmas gifts has evolved into a thriving business!

The products sold themselves with their unique formulation and tantalizing scents. Soon, Jessica had to leave her kitchen behind and find a warehouse big enough to whip up her products and ship out orders. After just four short years, LaLicious built a bigger facility in order to meet the needs of a successful growing business. Now her line is sold at select retailers and spas across the country!  Read more
