If you like extremely mild body scrubs this is the product for you. If you like scrubs that actually do some exfoliating, don't waste your money on this.

I'm one of those people who like their srubs to be scrubby - not so scrubby the exfoliator leaves you with red and raw, but one that exfoliates enough to get rid of all the dead skin cells. This scrub is not one of those scrubs, it really feels more like those "exfoliating" shower gels/creams.

It looks like suryp mixed with sugar and some kind of seeds in it. When massaged to the skin it turns into a nice creamy consistency. It spreads easily on wet skin, but there are nowhere near enough of those little black seeds and that's why you really have to srub it to your skin to get at least some exfoliation out of it.

It smells like citrus and something else, I'm not sure what, but it's not a nice smell at all. Of course you might like it since fragrances are such a personal thing, so better try to get your hands on a sample rather than take my word for it :)

So far I've really liked Nuxe skin care, but this body scrub was a disappointment. I'm just glad I didn't go and order the full size before trying it at first!

very good body scrub, one of the best i ever tried. I love the tiny brown granulas in it, the smell which is not overpowering and also the texture of the product is great. It really exfoliates skin well and leaves it dewy-like...powders in this product make a good job together with exfoliation. Will surely buy again.

Comes in a hygenice squeeze bottle. Love love, Its goes on smooth like white chocolate with little tiny scrubbers that are not scratchy at all. At least you can feel it exfoliating. I use this in the shower and every morning. It leaves my skin smooth and soft and mousterized. I use the Nuxe Gentle alcohol free toner afterwards. I gotta say my skin glows.

This product (another one for half price from Pure Beauty!) smells really good. Can't quite place the scent, but kind of citrusy and sweet.
The product itself is ok - to me, the exfoliating grains feel a little more scratchy than they should. My skin does feel really soft and smooth after use.
I will happily use up the rest of the product, but don't think that I would repurchase at full price.
