The most outstanding thing about this scrub is the texture, which is very much like damp sand. Like pretty much everyone, I love this scrub, and I can't say enough nice things about its texture and just-right moisturizing properties. So, why did I give it four lippies instead of five? The scents need to be chosen carefully. If you can't visit the store in person, the scents are kind of a crapshoot. Some I really liked, but others were just awful, and would have been a mess to return in the mail after opening. About the scents:SATSUMA MINT: extremely pleasant, unisex herbal during use; residual smell changes into something whangy but not too unbearable. I might get this one again. COTTON CANDY: pleasant enough for something so cloyingly sweet; does not smell like cotton candy to my nose, but really more like a combination of butterscotch and bubble gum. Not quite what I was looking for, but Cotton Candy leaves very little unpleasant residual smell. VANILLA FROSTING: this is by far the worst I've tried. I would definitely not repurchase this fragrance. It smells nothing like vanilla frosting (well, maybe the awful canned Vanilla Cream Cheese variety). It leaves behind an unpleasant plastic whang, and I will be using this up as quickly as I can just to get through it. SWEET TOOTH: somewhat more pleasant during use than Vanilla Frosting scent, but I would not buy this again due to the lingering plastic pong. RASPBERRY SMOOTHIE: middle of the road as these scents go. Far from being the worst, but not one I'd be drawn to buy again. Slight plastic afterscent, likely due the "vanilla" part of the smoothie. The raspberry note was fine. TANGERINE DREAM: I would definitely get this one again. NO PLASTIC AFTERSMELL WHATSOEVER! Smells remarkably like supersweet tangerine. PILLOW FIGHT!: This one is very feminine, richly fragranced, and lovely. NO PLASTIC AFTERSMELL WHATSOEVER! I would likely get this one again.
