Early-Harvest Raspberry Body Scrub ($20 for 200ml)
Honestly, I didn't expect to love it this much. The formula is a-ma-zing! It has the perfect amount of scrubby bits and they don't dissolve so you can scrub scrub scrub to your heart's content. My skin is soooo silky soft and not oily at all, it would be perfect to scrub off all the dead skin before applying a self-tanner.

The only thing that disappoint me is the smell when I'm using it, it smell so good in the jar but when I rub it on my skin in the shower it doesn't smell like raspberries anymore, more like plastic (maybe it's my water?). I still love it for its lovely texture a powerful scrubbing properties though.

Ingredients : Aqua, Glycerin, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Juglans Regia Shell Powder/Juglans Regia (Walnut) Shell Powder, Rubus Idaeus Seed/Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Seed, Silica, Polysorbate 20, Parfum/Fragrance, Benzyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Mel/Honey/Miel, Sodium Hydroxide, Benzophenone-3, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Disodium EDTA, Rubus Idaeus Fruit Extract/Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract, Denatonium Benzoate, CI 14700/Red 4, CI 17200/Red 33, CI 42090/Blue 1.

Early-Harvest Raspberry Shower Gel ($9 for 250ml)
This shower gel has the same lovely juicy raspberry scent than the others products, although a bit less 'in your face' than the body scrub and the eau de toilette. The scent doesn't last on my skin but it's still a nice product to use during the summer months!

It lather quite nicely and while it's not an hydrating shower gel, it doesn't dries up my skin either. I can sometimes be sensitive to fragrance in shower gels, so it was nice to find one that smell good and doesn't irritate my skin!

Early-Harvest Raspberry Body Lotion ($12 for 250ml)
Again, another great product! The scent isn't as strong than the others products but still soooo good. I swear I wasn't paid for this review, but I'm SO addicted to anything raspberry scented it drives me crazy. In fact I'm smelling the lotion right now and I'm almost drooling all over my keyboard. (!!!)

The texture is nice, I'm not a huge fan of their body butters because they are a bit too heavy for me, but this one is great. It's not too greasy or sticky and sink into the skin quite fast too. And it smells amazing, but I think you already know that. lol

Early-Harvest Raspberry Eau de Toilette ($15 for 30ml)
It's a very tart scent with nothing else, just pure juicy raspberry and it's not too sweet! If you want to smell like raspberries all day, definitely get the eau de toilette because it's the only one that last a long time. Weird thing is I've been craving raspberry flavored sweets these days, I wonder why? ;)
