This comes in a rather large tub for the price and is very thick in consistency. I recently went to an Aveda salon where I had a scrub treatment done and picked up some wonderful tips! #1 is that you do not want to apply this to wet skin, it won't exfoliate as well and you'll need more product to cover an area. #2 is to use a body oil prior to the scrub. What you want to do is step into the shower without turning on the water. Then take any body oil and apply it all over where you'll be using the scrub. Really rub it in and give yourself a nice layer of oil. Then take the smallest amount of scrub, you really don't need much at all as the thickness of this scrub will really spread out as you work with it. Scrub it in into your skin with circular motions for as long as you like, afterwards just rinsing with warm water and a light body wash if you like. You will step out of the shower with silky smooth skin!
