    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing: more a polish than a "scrub" I bought this a few weeks ago and am quite disappointed. I was looking for a hard-core scrub to exfoliate my legs over the dry harsh winter. Tried it in store and thought it would be great with all the oils. The problem is that if you try to use it in the shower with water running it comes off your skin before you get to scrub at it- meaning you need to do it before you turn the water on or turn it off while you scrub (terrible to do in winter). Found I had to really dig out a clump for it to start to scrub and lather. Will not be repurchasing as there are other body scrubs for less than half the price elsewhere. Maybe it will be better for use in summer, but overall it's more of a body polish than a "scrub".

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous scrub! I have very sensitive skin so I am unable to use a lot of products, so imagine my delight when not only could I use this beautifully-smelling scrub without getting hives, it made my skin the smoothest it has been for ages! It is not a gritty harsh scrub, but exfoliates skin gently, leaving it soft and moisturised. This is a fabulous product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very gentle effective scrub If you are worried about body scrub products can be harsh, or it can even scratch your skin with all ingredients such as sugar, salt, walnut shells etc, then this product is definitely an option for you. First of all, you need to clear your mind that this scrub method is like "chemical scrub" rather than "physical scrub" which you let the salt or sugar crystals do the exfoliation. This particular product, however, contain beeswax and oleic acid that together remove dead skin while nourish the new layer at the same time. That's why this product is very waxy or pastie till you need to push the finger down and "scoop" it up to apply on your skin. It claims there's sodium chloride, which is salt, but i find that tiny bit feel more like very fine grounded fruit seeds (could be Ximenia seeds) and it's more like massaging your skin rather scratching it. I apply it on dry skin with a few drop of water here and there just to help make it easier to smear over. The scrub has a very light and gentle floral scent that is not something shoving into your nose. You can definitely take your time and enjoy working your skin in a relaxing aroma. I find it sometimes a bit sticky after rinsing off so I prefer using shower gel afterward. Moringa, British Rose or Pink grapefruit would suit to use with this scrub

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonder Scrub! I always get the driest skin in winter, so the wonderful ladies at the body shop recommended this scrub to me and I'm glad that they did! This scrub not only removes the dry skin, but hydrates my skin too... no more itchy legs! YES! Not to mention that this scrub smells good, is able to be used in both the bath and the shower and leaves no oil slicks in the bath which makes cleaning easier. I love my new scrub. I definitely recommend getting it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jar of spa This product is so incredible! I opened my first jar tonight. Firstly the smell is devine - left my bath room smelling fantastic. I was a little skeptical when first dipping my fingers in and it felt oily and soft but when rubbing it on the skin I could definitely feel it exfoliating. I applied it to dry skin and then jumped into a milk bath. When washing it off in the bath I could feel how much smoother my skin was!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love, Love this Scrub! I've never used a scrub as amazing as this one. The smell is luxurious and the texture is amazing. The fine beads provide thorough exfoliation whilst moisturising my skin at the same time. As you use it before the shower I also find that it lasts longer and is hence great value for money. I love using it myself and gifting it to my friends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most amazing thing I've ever smelt I bought this and it has lasted me for 2 1/2 years, I only do a full body exfoliant once a week but it has the most exotic amazing smell you can imagine! and makes my skin feel soo soft and beautiful afterwards, if anything the exfoliant melts away quickly with the water so I do one part of my body at a time but it is uhhmazing.
