This is really great stuff.
Pros: Cheaper than any other brand I've seen. Really scrubby, just the way I like it :) Leaves my skin seriously soft without being greasy. Gel-like texture so oil doesn't spill all over the tub.
Cons: It starts stinging unless I rinse it off right away. Fairly natural, but still has some chemicals I don't like (but homemade ones attract ants so I'm kind of stuck).
The container doesn't bother me at all; actually I dislike squeeze tubes when it comes to scrubs! To prevent water from getting into it, just open it in a corner of the shower away from the water stream, scoop some with one hand and close the top with the other.
Anecdote: Today I used the scrub on my whole body instead of just one section (I do a different section every day like legs, arms, etc. to save time). No joke, my skin could breathe so well and my blood circulated better and I fell into a deep sleep for like 3 hours! Just had to rinse it off fast because the stinging started.
Seriously, sometimes the scrubbiness just hits the spot! :)
I hate to be the person that lower this rating! It's just so average for a body scrub. I am tempted to try the other more "natural" scents... maybe its the coconut lime that bothers me? There are so many better scrubs out there... perhaps this is a steal because of the $$$? Definitely affordable. I still think the tub is unsanitary in the shower and you shouldn't have this product for more than a month with the way that it is packaged and the fact that you'll be using it in the shower.
I don't feel like I am getting any softer skin with this... its not beady enough to exfoliate skin properly and the microbeads do literally nothing. For the price - its alright. But I won't be buying again.
I seen this at my local Ulta store for $5 and decided to pick it up and I am very impressed. I love lime coconut products they smell aswesome, this product smelled very good and isn't strong, it made my skin soft and beauty, made my moisturizers go on smoother, and this will be my summer must have as far as body scrubs. I will be picking more up very soon.
I literally just finished a tub of this body scrub and overall I like it. The packaging is cute, I prefer my scrubs in a tub rather than a squeeze tube. The scent doesnt smell anything like coconut lime, like at all, however its not an offensive smell. overall this product does exactly what it should and afterwards my skin always feels perfectly polished. afterwards you will need to apply a moisturizer as it is a little drying. I will repurchase, though I prefer the bath and body works aromatherapy ones that have oil in them, much more moisturizing.
Bought this at Walmart today for around $5. I have never bought a sugar scrub before, so I don't really have anything to compare this too other than a DIY one I've used that I found on Pinterest. After buying this, I went home and took an unnessecary shower because I was THAT excited to use it.. WOW. The skin on my legs has never felt so soft and clean. The smell is right on, "Coconut Lime" and the good thing is, the smell doesn't linger in the bathroom for too long either. I really love that this wont attract ants either, unlike the DIY scrub that I used which brought on tons of ants in my bathroom. The packaging is cute and simple, just a twist cap on a thick container. This product was around $5.40 I think, which is pretty cheap for the amount of product that you get. I will definitely be repurchasing now that I found something that makes my legs and the rest of my skin feel SO smooth! I imagine this will be really great to use before shaving your legs or self-tanning to really, deeply exfoliate! 5 Lippies for this product!
This brand also makes a couple other scents as well. I'm going to try the Honey & Almond one next! continued >>
I picked up a small container of this at Ulta because I hadn't used a sugar scrub for a while, and was pleasantly surprised. The scent is indeed a pleasant lime and coconut, but it doesn't linger after rinsing. I find it to be medium scrubby and only slightly oily, which is great because it left enough residue on the skin that I felt I could do without lotion, but didn't leave the tub/shower a dangerous, slick area or make the towels an oily mess. Also, the lack of excess oil makes it easier to spread on the skin, and there's much less waste. The screw-top packaging is plastic and easy to handle. This is a real winner for the price, and I will repurchase.
I purchased this after seeing many rave reviews from one of my favorite YT beauty gurus. My local store only had the almond, the chocolatey, and this one, coconut lime. I got this as I am not at all a fan of "gourmand" scents. The lime and coconut are nicely balanced and the scent is stronger when water is added than it is in the tub itself. It's less coconut than BBW CLV and not as sweet. I don't find it to be overpowering and it doesn't linger long. The consistency is thinner than VS or BBW scrubs but the sugar doesn't disappear as quickly. It doesn't lather like the other brands, not does it leave an oily residue. It's a great value at $6 for 18 ounces (21 ounces in the "bonus" size tub I found) and I would like to try it in other scents, specifically Tahitian Grass and Lavender Vanilla. If VS stops making their scrubs (or, if they continue to increase the price while decreasing the volume), this could easily become my go-to.
Totally, yummy scented scrub that is a value buy. Has a great coconut scent with a hint of lime. Excellent scrub that does not leave a heavy oily residue on the skin.
This is a nice, pleasing summery scent. It can be overpowering, though, in comparison to the Brazilian Nut scent.
I like it, though, and it seems that this one had a medium thickness to it. Some others I've had are thinner, and others are very, very thick.
In any case, I LOVE sugar scrubs, especially before or after shaving and to exfoliate my face.
Loveeeeeeeeeeeeeee this stuff, which they made them a bit bigger since I get overzealous with my body scrubbin !
Smells great, very beachy, coconutty, and it is an intense scrub you really feel it on your skin and when your done you are very soft and polished. Great for weekly exfoliation.
I find that when I stop using this my skin gets all dry and flaky on me...
Will continue to use and recently got the mango papaya one, that scent is more up my alley but yes 5 STARS!
