While I didn't take kindly to this particular scent, the scrub itself was just awesome. Perfect for exfolisting or shaving. Too bad it's a limited edition.

I love this product!! More gentle than the traditional MK scrub. The sugar granules gently melt as you exfoliate and the scent is divine.
It reminds me of lemonade on a hot summer day. Very fresh and delicious smelling.

I prefer sugar scrubs over salt scrubs since they are usually not oil based, don't sting, and tend to be cleansing/exfoliating at the same time. Unfortunately for me, Mary Kay's sugar scrub has more characteristics of an oil-based scrub. The first ingredient in this is mineral oil, and there is a warning on the tube to 'use care ... as tub or shower surface may become slippery'. I like to use scrubs in the tub prior to shaving my legs, for exfoliation, so this just resulted in a gunky razor blade and gummy bathtub. To be fair, I can't take points off the product simply because it doesn't work for my preferred method of usage. It's a decent scrub, smells delicious (very reminiscent of Velocity), and is not overly rough. If you have sensitive skin, or if you like to use scrubs in the shower post-cleansing, this would probably be ideal. It moisturizes well, is gentle, and leaves a nice scent on the skin. For me though, for the price ($14 for 6.2 oz.) I'd take one of the Victoria's Secret sugar scrubs over this any day. This is limited edition and comes in three other fragrances.
