Another sugar scrubbing convert here- what bliss! This is by far the best scrub I have ever used body and face. With my face, I pour some sugar into my facial cleanser and scrub gently. On my body, I add some to a liquid soap and then add more directly onto my skin as needed and scrub vigorously. It is the perfect amount of scrubbing action- not to rough or gentle and I feel like a million bucks afterwards.
Yes I would 'buy' this product again!! straight from the supermarket shelves!!
I was online, about to order some Lush Ocean Salt. Thought I'd come here and browse for the most popular scrub first, just to see if there was something better available. I noticed the rating for sugar, and decided to try for myself - as mentioned, mixing EVOO with some sugar.
I cant believe it. This is equal to, if not better than any body scrub that you pay a fortune for!!!! I also used it on my face - fantastic. The sugar granules polish the skin smooth, while the EVOO leave a lovely moisturised finish.
I'll never buy another scrub again!!!
It's nothing remarkable. I used it to exfoliate all aspects of my face, but it didn't do the ideal job. I'm looking for something more, and although some products are good because of their pureness and focus on ONE ingredient, I didn't like it too much.
But if you're asking if I want to buy it again, I guess I'll have to if I want to eat. ;)
I used EVOO and sugar and my skin was so soft. I just did it on my body and don't think I would try it on my face. I am going to get my bikini area waxed soon and the esthecian told me to exfoliate with organic sugar and grape seed oil, so I think I will try that next.
I love this!
I thought I would give it a go after reading the reviews here, I am amazed how good it is, I used several recipes, the first one was camillia oil and unrefined sugar, nice result, then I tried it with my cleanse & polish again nice result.
Its amazing that something so cheap could have such a great effect!
WOW! I feel like the biggest idiot for buying all those expensive scrubs from all those bigshot skin care companies. This cost friendly and natural scrub is the best one I've ever tried. I mix it with extra virgin olive oil and use this on both my face and body and my skin is so smoooth:) Forget those pricey scrubs in their pretty bottles, this all natural scrub is wayy better.
I made a olive oil and suagr scrub last night. Used it on my face and body! My skin felt amazing and so smooth! This will be a staple in my beauty routine!
I did 1/2 cup white sugar
with 3 tablespoon EVOO
I make mine mixing sugar, honey, and a drop or two or lavender oil. It elaves my skin smooth for days, not to mention it's almsot good enough to eat. Lavender oil gives it a pleasant smell, and has been used for centuries for its healing purposes. A lot of OTC scrubs are mixture of salt and oil, bad, bad, bad. Salt is extremely drying, and the oil leaves a nasty film. Plus you can whip up this tuff for a fraction of the cost of store bought scrubs.
Using sugar mixed with extra virgin olive oil is my HG of facial and body scrubs! I have extremely dry, sensitive, flaky skin and the sugar/EVOO mix leaves my skin smooth, hydrated and GLOWING! I pour a bit of sugar in a little bowl and then pour olive oil until the mixture becomes moist but not drenched. I then massage it all over my face and rinse. Voila! Incredible skin! I can't believe it took so long for me to discover this beauty secret in my own kitchen cabinet.
I made a mask and bath product tonight with oatmeal (which I food processed to be finer), brown sugar, milk powder (processed those too) and then added enough honey to wet to the right consistency I wanted for a mask. I sat in the bath and applied this to my face. Some of it fell off into the bath water, but that was just fine. I packed it on my face and used some to massage my damp body skin. Then, dumped the remaining into the bathwater, along with some oils and salt. Then I sat back for a bit. I massaged the mask into my skin gently. I could not help but lick some of it off, it was sooo good. Then finally, I rinsed it all off. My face and body were so soft and smooth. My facial skin looked calm, smoother, and less redness. There is definitely something to using these "old-fashioned" natural ingredients (although I love science's chemicals too, when they are beneficial :). I am going to experiment more with using alone or in combination: milk powder, honey, oatmeal, brown sugar, salt, olive oil, and maybe certain herbs n spices for facial masks and bath. I have also made my own scrubs for use in the shower with brown sugar, oil (any) and some flavoring such as those you use for cooking (almond, vanilla, coconut, etc.) Very natural, inexpensive, and you don't even need moisturizer afterward.
