Vintage Sister Elbow Grease Review

Oooo the weather is warming up...kinda...sorta...ok, not really but soon it'll be warmer and you'll want to have picture perfect knees, elbows, and legs. You'll be wearing shorts, you'll be showing your arms, and tons of skin will be on display for all to admire or if you're wobbly like the Muse you keep those bits under cover hehe!

You're so NOT wanting to have crusty, flaky, dry elbows, knees, and legs right? Don't panic. Solution ahead!

I'm a big fan of Lush Massage Bars as I think they do my skin a world of good especially the dry, ickier parts of my body but I'm all for an alternative that's cute and sweet smelling!

That's where Vintage Sister Elbow Grease comes into play! It gives me a bit of a sweeter option with kawaii packaging. What's Elbow Grease anyway? Elbow Grease is simply a solid moisturizing bar that you can rub on your dry skin to smooth it up. You take the soap shaped bar and rub it on rough elbows or knees or anywhere else dry skin is cropping up and as your body temperature rises the bar will melt slightly into a creamy, dreamy moisturizing treatment.

Vintage Sister steps up the game and makes Elbow Grease extra cute and travel friendly by housing it in a sliding tin case. Slide the tin open and pop the bar out for use, after you're done pop the bar back in and slide the tin closed!

Elbow Grease is $10 USD a tin and comes in six fun scents! I have mine scented in Carribean Fruit which has touches of tropical orange, cherry, coconut, and pineapple! It's a combo of sweet, tropical fruits that's sure to get you in the mood for Spring!

Each bar will last around a three to four weeks with daily use. It works fabulously well at making skin extra smooth and particularly makes your legs feel wonderfully silky and short ready for the Summer!

All in all I'm still a big lover of Lush Massage Bars as they perform the very same way but I really like the fun, quirky style of Vintage Sister which is what makes Elbow Grease such a hit for me.

Snag some today at

Shipping is very reasonable as well ranging from $1.99-$2.99 USD or less within the US and $6 USD and up for International Orders.

Loves it! Works a treat and getting the Muse all soft and silky again!

Tried it?

Want to?

Tell the Muse!

hello celo!

Sorry for the delayed reply.

I'd 2 hours or so...maybe three. it depends on your body chemistry of course as well. I apply to my elbows and I'd say the scent lasts about two hours at best.

Hope this helps!
