this is the first body scrub i ever used, and i am sooooo pleased with it, that i don't want to change it! ti contains powdered almond cernels, so they don't dissolve while you massage. for this reason, a little goes a long way. this product has saved me from ingrown hairs (i recently started waxing instead of shaving). the smell is great as well. it has the discreet buttery smell of the matching body butter, plus a slight bitter smell from the almond cernels. amazingly good... very expensive, but worth it.
If you're looking for a more intense scrub than the traditional drugstore apricot ones, this is for you. Use your hands to rub into your body in circles, and you will be left smoother and sweet smelling. Don't even try it on your face. Wish it came in a squeeze or pump, but I understand that either might clog with the bigger granuals in this scrub. However the twist off top is really annoying and I hate getting water in the container as I'm trying to open it in the shower.
I love this scrub, and the smell of it makes me want to dip my finger in it and eat it lol. It is better than the sugar based scrubs because it doesn't melt in contact with water. Leaves my skin so smooth! I use it with TBS exfoliating gloves twice a week. BUY IT!
beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!
i've used body scrubs that film an oily film aftershower, it totally made me feel grimy in humid singapore. so im sceptical of bodyscrubs. the reviews of this cocoa butter body scrub, made me went all-out on TBS frenzy (20% off storewide! dec 2010) back to the product, it reminds me of st ives's apricot scrub in terms of granules size & consistency. the superior winning factor of this product, is the beautiful skin it left, so smooth & moisturised..it felt like a spa aftermath. all scrub, will scrub...but not all scrubs will leave a good skin after effects. glad i choose the right scrub. this is the perfect body scrub for all. smells mildly pleasant too...it puts me in a good mood thruout the day..cos the skin just feels so good!
This is my all time favorite body scrub. I first tried it when I was pregnant...overly scented products made me nauseous and I didn't want a salt or sugar based scrub that would make my shower slippery. Saw the positive reviews here, and I can see why this gets such awesome reviews...it works really, really well -- got rid of my upper arm bumps and left my skin feeling smooth and moisturized. It's got a faint cocoa butter scent that is pleasant and not overpowering.The screw top tub isn't ideal for the shower, but I'm willing to deal with it since I love the product.
I love this!! For a chocoholic this is an addiction. I will eat it all if i could. I use this and then the cocoa body butter. It leaves my skin smooth, soft and moisturised for the entire day. Love the smell. Love the formula! Loving it!!
this is a pretty good product except that it is a little to abrasive on your skin. other than that it removed alot of my dead skin and smelled great!
i'm diappointed. after i read good reviews here, i tried .
after i applied it to my knee, it felt like wax remains on my knee.
it doesn't dry out but it doesn't moisrizing either.
I return this product and go back to my old scrub
I use this twice a week all over my body and it has lasted me a couple of months now, so I believe it has good value for the price. That aside, this is the best thing EVER. Not only does it polish your skin into a silky texture, but it moisturizes and smells lovely as well. A little goes a long way because it is very charged with exfoliating beads and you don't need to dip too much product to cover large areas of your body. The packaging, as others have mentioned, isn't too hygienic (sp?), but I haven't had too many issues with that. It's such a treat to use this product, I'll keep repurchasing forever :)
I like this a lot and does what I want it to, it gives me soft smooth glowing skin. It smells lovely too: a bit almondy.The base has a creamy consistency so it doesn't leave grease on your skin when it is rinsed off. It is very abrasive too which I like, but is also gentle- some scrubs don't have enough scrubby bits and others have really sharp painful ones. This is just right for me.
I took off a lippy because it does contain some nasties and the packaging is not the most hygienic since you have to dip your hands in and contaminate it.
