My favourite scrub ever ! Probably not the most exotic smelling but a lovely texture, doesn't feel like its scratching my sensitive skin, and I feel really smooth afterward. Also doesn't make the bath slippery afterward unlike some others !
For 6.7 oz at US$17.50, Clinique's Sparkle Skin Body Exfoliator wasn't all that great... It had a nice refreshing scent, and exfoliated nicely, but it's just too expensive for me. I'm sure I can find a much cheaper brand that does the exact same thing.
I bought this when I bought the Clinique sunless tanner. It works great before you apply your sunless tanner. I am very impressed with this scrub. It makes my skin super smooth. The big jar will last me all summer! A little pricey, but it works way better than the goopy chunky scrubs I have tried before. The fine grains in this scrub make my skin feel amazing! I will definitely repurchase.
Thanks for the note about the change in name as I would never have found this great product otherwise. I've tried a number of scrubs but this really is the best and well worth the price (although I got it free using Advantage Card points in Boots). It has a great minty smell, sticks whilst you scrub and washes off to leave your skin incredibly soft. It even gets rid of the bumps on the back of my thighs I get after a day wearing tights (what are they?!). The tub looks great on the bathroom shelf too!
I gave this the ultimate test when I used it prior to applying my self-tanner. I got very nice even results and a lasting tan so I have to assume that the scrub did its job! I'm not in love with the smell or the packaging but I'm a big fan of the small granules and found the menthol refreshing on my skin rather than irritating.
A very fine but yet thourough scrub. It does a pretty good job without damaging your skin. I hate those grainy scrubs and this is just what I have been looking for.
Great! I don't like the pot though. Prefer a tube.
I like the texture of this scrub and find it exfoliates my skin very well. The fragrance is okay - minty but does have a slight "medicine" smell. Overall the product has worked well for me.
I didn't like this scrub at all. I finished the tube, but I couldn't wait for it to be gone.
The texture was nice, but the menthol in it was too much for my skin, and the skin on my arms and legs can take just about anything.
It also left my skin very dry. Other non-oily scrubs, like BE's Escentual Body Polish, manage to exfoliate without drying my skin out. Wish this one did! continued >>
I am torn between whether I would buy this product again - I think it's best as an energising body scrub - when I've used it in the bath/shower in the evening to relax, the tingly sensation and the peppermint/spearmint scent wakes me up rather than relaxes me. That said, it is a good quality body scrub, and it works very well, it is also moisturising enough to be kind to my skin. I think it's expensive at £12 per pot so I keep it as a luxury/treat buy. I will continue to search for my HG mid-range price effective body scrub.
This is the best body scrub I have ever tried. I can really feel the difference when I get out of the shower after using this. It makes my skin incredibly soft. Best of all, it's not too harsh on my skin. The salt grains are very fine. I also like the fact that it's not all oily and greasy like many other scrubs that I've used in the past, so it doesn't leave any gross residue on my skin. The only downside to this is the scent, but luckily it doesn't linger on my skin. I have finally found my holy grail body scrub. I will definitly continue to purchase this.
