Nekisse Sorbetto Emulsifying Sugar Scrub - Ethiopian Coffee, Blueberry, Buttery Pastry... Original Formula
Nekisse Sorbetto Emulsifying Sugar Scrub
Deep, rich Ethiopian coffee studded with ripe blueberries & buttery pastry crumbs
We are complete & utter coffee snobs in our household, thanks to the amazing folks at Square One Coffee in Lancaster, PA. Jess & Josh travel the world to find the most incredible fair-trade coffee beans, bring them back to PA, & roast them to perfection every time. Their staff is fantastic, their coffee delicious, & their passion infectious. Check them out at http://www.squareonecoffee.com/
Nekisse (the scrub) is a direct homage to Nekisse (the coffee). You know those tasting notes on specialty coffee bags, the ones that say ridiculous things like "chewy, with notes of cherry, Meyer lemon & toffee"? With Square One Coffee, you REALLY TASTE THOSE THINGS. It's pretty amazing. Nekisse (the coffee) blew us away with its buttery, blueberry aroma & perfectly smooth acidity. (See? Coffee snobs.)
Nekisse (the scrub) contains hand-ground Square One coffee, & is scented with a blend of dark coffee, sweet blueberry & vanilla pastry to echo the scent of the beans themselves. It's essentially the smell of a perfect coffee house breakfast, in scrub form.
Sorbetto is a delightfully malleable, scoopable sugar scrub fortified with nourishing rice bran, avocado & grape seed oils & luxurious mango butter. Massaged into wet skin, it emulsifies into a light, creamy lotion that gently cleanses, polishes & moisturizes, leaving you feeling deliciously soft & smelling wonderful :)
I've added a healthy scoop of very finely ground coffee beans for a bit of extra scrub & their delicious smell...
This listing is for a generous 11 ounces of emulsifying sugar scrub, blended by hand in small batches with no SLS/SLES, parabens, propylene glycol, -cones, animal products, coconut oil or shea butter (for my sensitive customers). Most of my fragrances are phthalate-free, too! I don't whip my scrubs, so you get a jar packed with product, not air.
I pack Sorbetto in a recyclable plastic jar, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Sucrose (Sugar), Glycerin, Aqua (Water), Sorbitol, Sodium Cocoyl/Lauroyl Isethionate, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Persea Americana (Avocado) Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Fragrance Oil, Sodium Chloride (Salt), Levulinic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Ultramarines, Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Bean
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from jar to jar.
To prolong the life of your Sorbetto, keep it tightly sealed & avoid introducing excess water to the jar. A clean plastic spoon is ideal for scooping out just the right amount :)
Please use Sorbetto within 3 months of opening, & discontinue use if irritation occurs. I specifically blend Sorbetto not leave a greasy film, but it may leave your tub a bit slippery, so do be careful :)
*Note that this is the original scent blend; due to component issues, Nekisse & other PBSW scents will be reformulated in 2018 as supplies run out. Read more about it here: http://paintboxsoapworks.com/blog/2018-reformulations-discontinuations/
One of my favorites

I love so many of Paintbox Soapworks' scrubs--have been buying them for years and always excited to try new scents. But Nekisse is a favorite, with It's heavenly scent of coffee with a hint of blueberry and butter. And I love the fact that this comes from a female-owned small business!

This is my second time ordering it, and won't be my last. If you are an Ethiopian coffee fan, this is like taking the coffee and amping up the blueberry and pastry notes. It's the best way to wake up in the morning!

This has been a fav of mine for some time. I think this is the third jar I've ordered! Such an authentic coffee and blueberry scent. Not heavy but leaves you wanting to smell it again and again!!! Very effective as a scrub and you don't have to use much to cover a lot of territory!
Smells Positively Edible!

Smells just like a wonderful blueberry scone with a rich cup of coffee! It's not too sweet, as the coffee really balances out the fruit and pastry notes, and I have to keep reminding myself not to eat it!

This smells like a lovely pastry and coffee shop. The scrub itself is wonderful!
Smells good enough to EAT!!!

This was a gift for my daughter, but I smelled it and it smells heavenly. I've used the scrubs before and they are kind to your skin but exfoliate wonderfully.
Can't get enough
