I don't think this is a bad product, but it's ridiculous to pay $60 for this. I got this as a sample with my Sephora order. The sugar grains are very large so it's a pretty rough scrub, It does leave a good amount of oil on you, which some people love and some people hate. I liked it, I didn't need to moisturize later. I agree with the other posters who said that lemon scent for a brown sugar scrub is strange. I wonder if you could recreate this scrub with Sugar in the Raw, unscented bath oil and some lemongrass essential oil. In any case, this hardly seems worth the hefty price tag.
If this scrub was not priced out of the stratosphere, I'd give it 5 lippies. The damned price being what it is, I'm overly generous for giving it even 3 lippies. It smells wonderful (until you rinse it down the drain!) and leaves the skin soft. But really, it is not worth $58 (USD) for the good smells and softness. I haven't encountered anything that you rinse down the drain that is actually worth that kind of money, folks. At $20 this would still be a luxury item, but a more affordable luxury. At $15 Fresh would be selling this stuff like crazy.
I love this scrub so much! I buy it for myself on my birthday every year- too expensive for anything else! It's a nice treat to myself. I think it smells like heaven and leaves me so soft I don't need lotion even in winter. Too bad it costs so much....
This is so pricey but I love it. It took me several months to finally plunk down sixty bucks for this scrub, and I only did it after I tried and returned less expensive scrubs from origins and philosophy. For me this is worth the big bucks. The smell is to die for, it leaves my skin so soft, smooth, and heavenly scented. Normally my skin gets kind of dry and flaky in the winter, but this stuff just smooths over the roughness. Love it and highly recommend. But do try before you buy because previous reviewers are right - there is a lot of oil and some people might not like it. I happen to prefer the oil formula over a more solid scrub like gingerbread man.
I love the Sugarbath line, and got a sample of this. It was divine and I decided to fork over the high price to get a jar of the stuff. Unfortunately the jar is about 1/3 oil floating on top. I'm really disappointed. The sample "travel" packet was much less oily. The photos shown of the product show a nice, drier substance (like the packet was). Instead I've got a runny mess that is just plain nasty. I never even use it due to the oily mess on top. I've tried pouring the excess oil off, but more works its way up. I wouldn't pay more than about $5 for this stuff. :(
I had to try this scrub after hearing raves about it in magazines. I scrub daily, with numerous different brands of scrubs. The price tag on this one is steep, but it is incredibly moisturizing and provides just the right amount of exfoliation. It also has a wonderful fragrance. I would definitely buy it again, but probably on Ebay where I can get it at a discount. Sure, you can make your own scrub for much less, but finding the right combination of oils that is "just right" isn't as easy as it might seem, so sometimes it is easiest to leave it to someone else!
A total and absolute waste of $58! It is nothing but really coarse brown sugar, fragrant oils and preservatives. There is no way that this amalgamation should cost this much. Better to save your hard earned money and do what I do once a week--mix some sugar with lemon juice (baking soda if lemon is too irratating for your skin type) and exfoliate before taking a shower. My home-made concoction never fails to elicit comments about how silky my skin feels
This is a really great scrub. I liked how it was rough but not overly so and I really felt that I was giving me a good scrub. It also has a nice sugary lemon like scent. However, I would not repurchase it as it is SO expensive. It was also a bit on the oily side. NE's scrubs work just as well but for MUCH cheaper.
In a word: I LOVE this. Okay, that's three words, but you get the idea.
This has the most fabulous subtle lemony-sugary scent. It smells so good that you'll want to eat it. But don't, it really doesn't taste very nice. Sweet and chemically. If you get this, however, you will ignore my advice and try it anyway and then you will think, "I should have listened to Christine." But that's okay, that will be your private shame.
As to effects on the skin: fabulous! The sugar grains are "scrubby" enough (I hate weak body scrubs -- what's the point?) and the oils are very moisturizing. It has rid my upper arms of those tiny dry bumps that I can never remember the name of. I'm sure the skincare board experts will tell you if you ask though.
All in all, I L-O-V-E , love this and am going to give it 5 lipsticks even though it is so expensive ($58 at last count).
This product got rid of all of the roughness and then provided moisturizers that gave my skin a glow and fresh scent that lasted all day. I just wish the packaging wouldn't leak so bad! Also, for almost $60 you would think they would have put a little more into the look of the packaging. Because of the way my skin looks, smells, and feels afterward, I will definitely continue to buy it.
