Beauty | & Other Stories Fig Fiction Body Scrub

& Other Stories are a fashion brand based in Sweden and owned by clothing retailer H&M. They specialise in creating collections and looks available to purchase from one place. From clothing, to the accessories, shoes, bags, lingerie and even beauty - they allow the customer to create their own style. I understand that there is a store in Regents Street in London, but other than that it is only available online.

I hadn't heard of the company before, but read a review on this body scrub and instantly added it to my Wishlist to give it a try.

If you know me well, or have followed my blog for a while, you'll know that a body scrub is an important part of my routine and my scrub has to be super scrubby!! No crappy exfoliating beads, a good ol' salt/sugar scrub that really gets to work and scrubs my skin well, makes me happy!

So, I received a tub of & Other Stories Fig Fiction Body Scrub for Christmas. Let's see if it lives up to my expectations...

& Other Stories say...
'Smoothing sugar scrub that polishes skin to a silken texture and leaves it lusciously scented.'

I love the tub, the packaging has a simple yet classy, stylish look to it. And at £7.00 for 250ml I think that's a pretty decent price for a good quality scrub. Shipping costs £6.00 which is a bit steep for a £7.00 tub of scrub, so treat yourself to a few bits to make it worth it!! ;) Such a bad influence aren't I? ;)
On opening, the fragrance is quite strong. I wish I could describe the fragrance to you; wild fig, berries... it's not an amazingly yummy smell, but it's a very pleasing, clean smell that isn't too overwhelming. 
I delve into the tub to feel a soft, sticky scrub and get to work on my skin. Wow. Not only is it perfectly scrubby that I can feel it exfoliating my skin without being too abrasive, but it also lathers up, almost creating a body wash too. I literally 'Oooh'ed! 
It smoothed. It polished. It left a silken texture [well, it had a good try ;)]. And it was lusciously scented. I think & Other Stories can pretty much tick all the boxes on the scrub front. I think I may well have found my new favourite body scrub. And I'm already desperate to try out some of the other fragrances. Although I've used this a fair few times now and think this tub is going to last me a good while yet! There are also body washes, soaps, body lotions and body mists available in the same range for fragrance layering. 

Would I Recommend?
Yes. Yes. Yes. If, like me, you like your body scrub super scrubby! ;) It's great quality and feels amazing on my skin. It's really helping get my skin back on form, leaving it polished and smoothed. 

Would I Repurchase?
Yes. Yes. Yes. I'm most definitely going to be repurchasing in other fragrances once this is empty! I'm a new fan!

& Other Stories Body Scrubs, are available in 12+ fragrances, at £7.00 for 250ml, plus £6.00 shipping fee, at
