Leave a comment

I am such a lucky, lucky lady. Jamie, the founder of Petal and Post kindly sent me some samples of Odacite’s Spa Collection to test out. I have reviewed some of Odacite’s concentrates and loved some while I was indifferent to another so I was interested to see how their spa collection would work for me. Read on for the full review!

I’m in love. This hand and heel therapy cream works amazing! It’s summertime here in Toronto and one thing I sometimes struggle with is finding a heel cream that is nourishing enough without being too heavy. Odacite has made the perfect cream for smooth, sandal ready feet. What surprises me is the texture of this cream. It seems thin when I first squeezed it out of the sample bottle. But it packs powerfully nourishing ingredients like Shea Nut Butter, Beeswax, Aloe Vera, Sunflower Oil and Olive Fruit Oil. My feet soaked up the cream quickly and stayed hydrated all day long without being slippery. As for the scent, it’s a nice, mild herbal scent that I found refreshing. Once my skin absorbed it the scent dissipated. I’m definitely going to repurchase this cream again.

Cost: $45.00 CAD, 120 ml / 4 oz

Odacite, Invigorating Jasmine-Mimosa Body Scrub **

Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Juglans Regia (Walnut) Shell Powder, Decyl Glucoside, Lauryl Glucoside, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice*, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Glycerin, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Seed Extract*, Spirulina Platensis (Algae) Extract*, Lactobacillus/Arundinaria Gigantea (Bamboo) Ferment Filtrate, Chitosan Succinamide, Cymbopogon Flexuosus (Lemongrass) Leaf Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Flower/Leaf Oil*, Acacia Decurrens (Mimosa) Flower Extract, Jasminum Sambac (Jasmine) Flower Oil, Cananga Odorata (Ylang-Ylang) Flower Oil, Litsea Cubeba (Litsea Cubeba) Fruit Oil, Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Oil, Citrus Hystrix (Combava) Peel Oil, Filipendula Ulmaria (Meadowsweet) Leaf Extract, Silybum Marianum (Milk Thistle) Seed Extract*, Vetiveria Zizaniodes (Vetiver) Root Oil, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Gluconolactone, Sodium Benzoate. *Organic Origin

Here’s another winning product! I loved the smell of this scrub. It’s floral yet fresh smelling at the same time. The balance of floral and citrus oils in this scrub helps it feel luxurious but not overpowering. Those who are scent sensitive may find the smell strong. But once I washed the scrub off the smell didn’t linger. The walnut shell helps to scrub your skin smooth without being too abrasive, while the algae and rice provide the moisturizing properties. Just note that this scrub isn’t recommended for use on the face. I liked using it on my feet to help get them super smooth after scrubbing with a foot file. No scratchy feet for me! A little also goes a long way with this scrub so you don’t need to slap it on in copious amounts. It’s a tad pricey for a scrub so once I finish my other scrubs I may purchase the full size and see how long it lasts me.

Cost: $55.00 CAD, 240ml / 8 oz
