Potting Shed in a Deluge Sorbetto Emulsifying Sugar Scrub SAMPLE SIZE - Wet Dirt, Spring Rain, Greenhouse Plants... Limited Edition
Potting Shed in a Deluge Sorbetto Emulsifying Sugar Scrub - 2.5-ounce SAMPLE SIZE!
The warm, humid air of the greenhouse, rich with damp soil & growing things & the sudden rain of spring
Back in the 50s, my grandparents built their own house in a wooded enclave on the outskirts of London. It was a sensible, modern, tidy home, with huge picture windows looking out onto their prized garden. They raised alpine plants, in particular, coddling tiny little bulbs & cuttings from their annual pilgrimages to the mountains of France & Spain. Their potting shed was built off the back of the garage, a small greenhouse cluttered with lichen crusted pots & bags of pea gravel & bottles of esoteric plant foods & elixirs. I was too young, really, to appreciate the magnitude of their work, but I will always remember the weird, wet, muddy smell of that shed on a spring day, & the tiny red tulips, no taller than my thumb, just starting to bloom in their pots...
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 :) Now you can take your favorite Paintbox Sorbettos on the go in handy 2.5-ounce sample sizes, perfect for pockets, purses & carryons! They also make excellent any-day gifts & stocking stuffers.
This listing is for a handy 2.5 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), Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sorbitol, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Sodium Chloride (Salt), Fragrance Oil, Phenoxyethanol & Tetrasodium EDTA (paraben-free preservatives), FD&C Colorant
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 :)

I love this scent! I'm definitely going to have to get the full sized scrub and probably the soap to match it! It's a lovely light green scent that smells quintessentially like Spring. It smells like something I know I used to love... but have long since forgotten.
Smells like my favorite hiking trail!

I wish I could give this ten stars -- it's a bright, spicy green rounded out with notes of rain and dirt. Absolutely gorgeous and I will be upgrading this scent to a full size scrub very soon!
