I loved the butters, so I figured the matching scrubs would be nice too. Shame the product doesn't live up to expectations. The packaging isn't so great either, the big wide tub lets water get in and make the product even more crap. The sugar melts before it gets a chance to exfoliate anything. I may as well make my own :P

(Somedays I do make my own. I mix sugar + left over old lotions I don't like as much anymore, apply to dry skin BEFORE showering, let it settle for a minute or 2. Then briskly rub it off. Rinse off and voila, soft n smooth skin). Right, where was I? After all the bits that were meant to exfoliate you melt into goo, you're left with a greasy mess spread over your skin. To make matters worse, it's very sticky and icky and leaves a gooey film that's hard to get off without using a loofah + shower gel/more scrub to get it off.

At least it smells nice while it does annoying things. continued >>
