This scrub smells amazing and leaves your skin feeling so soft afterwards. I get very sensitive skin after shaving, and when I use this before shaving and after, I don't feel a thing. It's also great to use for shaving the day after you just shaved to protect against irritation. It is slightly oily, which you don't really notice at all after you dry off and put lotion on. The jar it comes in does tend to get water in it even if I think I dried my hand off beforehand. This scrub is so awesome. Worth the price. And a little goes a long way.

Love this body scrub. Great scent and leaves a lovely - but not too oily - sheen. If only it wasn't quite so expensive, otherwise I'd use it all the time instead of saving it for special occasions only.

I'm in love with this body scrub, I look forward to using it everyday! I have extremely dry, flaky skin and this definitely helps. My skin is so much smoother and softer after using it, although the effect only lasts about a day unfortunately. I like the scent as well- it's a fresh citrusy-lemon sort of scent that's very light but doesn't linger very long. Will definitely be trying out other body scrubs for cheaper alternatives (the sugar polish is pretty expensive- $44 CAD) but glad to know that I would be willing to go back to this one if other ones don't work out!

I received this as a gift. It is ridiculously expensive ($38!) - especially for how much you get, which is only enough for about six uses - so I would never buy it for myself, thus I wouldn't 'buy it again'. However, as far as the product itself goes, it is a pretty great scrub. The sugar crystals are big and coarse and strip off my self-tanner really well, without having to grind down the skin like I normally would. It smells very good, sort of like oranges, and leaves my skin feeling super smooth and soft. The sugar crystals have a base liquid that can feel a little sticky after rinsing if the weather is humid, but it's not a big deal. I will definitely be checking out other (cheaper) sugar scrubs after the results I got with this one, hoping to find a good dupe.

I received this as a gift. I do not like the smell at all. It is a weird sour citrus smell that is not very pleasant. I also think it is too oily of a formula and the grains are too coarse for my sensitive skin. Plus it is soo expensive! would not buy this for myself.

I noticed this product in Sephora by this product while looking for a natural deodorant so I picked this up in a gift set online containing the lotion and rollerball. I love the smell but honestly this is just an expensive sugar scrub, a "rich person" sugar scrub. I say this because I did not notice a considerable difference between this and other sugar scrubs I have tried. I will however fill up the jar with another product when it runs out so I feel luxurious :). Hey it works for my dad..except he fills an empty bottle from expensive liquor with a cheaper one even though it tastes the same.

I got this as part of a Sephora set that included a 3.4 oz brown sugar body crean and a 10 mL roller ball EDP. For the price it was a good deal, but individually I would probably not buy this again. It is very oily and leaves residue in the tub. It does work well and is not too agressive, yet not too wimpy for a body scrub, but for the price I can get etailer stuff that I like better for less money. That said, I enjoy the lemon-y, brown sugar, sweet (faintly iced tea-ish - reminds me of Snapple Lemon iced tea) scent. Good product but procey and not a HG. Try LaLicious - or Coconut Hut Beauty's whipped sugar scrub.

Everytime I mention to a sales rep that I am looking for a great body scrub, I'm always recommended this product. I finally decided to try it, and I must say...my skin hasn't been this soft and smooth since I was a baby! Although the packaging says it's safe to use everyday, I don't find it necessary because my skin still feels like butter 3 days after using it. I don't particularly care for the smell. When I think of brown sugar, I think of a cinnamony dark, spicy scent. The scent of this product is rather light and fruity smelling. But the results of using this product far outweigh the smell. Also, the granules don't dissolve and are rather large, but I really feel as though this scrub does an excellent job of exfoliating and my skin has a glow to it. I apply this scrub before showering on dry skin to get real exfoliation. This product is also pricey, but around the holiday time, Sephora sells sets of the Brown Sugar line, so I got this scrub, a lotion, and perfume roller ball, for $50. Will definitely repurchase!

I received a free sample of this with my latest Sephora purchase. Tried it out today and was not a fan. It was much too oily for me. Hated the feeling it left behind and used one of my other scrubs to get rid of it. It did feel good at first because my legs were itchy today thanks to the dry climate in which I live, but I didn't like anything else about it. I had no idea about the price until I read what other reviewers wrote; goodness I would never pay that much for this scrub - so glad I had a sample to try. Cleaned the oil out of the little container and am now using it to store a broken lip balm!

As much as I wanted to like this one, I don't. The sugar granuals are very big and rough---too much so. And using this feels like rubbing cut glass on the skin. Ouch! It also does not dissolve well in the shower. The only thing I liked about it in the end was the fragrance.

I got this as a sample along with some other fresh products. Like other readers, I disliked the consistency of it. The sugar felt too rough to the skin and it was too oily for my liking. I dislike making such a big mess in my shower after using this product. It just dripped everywhere.

I worked for a store that sold the Fresh products. I had always heard about the cult following that this product had, so I was beyond excited to try it. I had saved up; it was quite a splurge at $65. It was beyond disappointing. Not only because of the cost, but for the consistency. It was way too oily and the sugar was very jagged and rough. I am super dry and it just felt nasty on the skin. It is a shame because I love the way it smells and LOVE fresh as a brand but don't waste your money! I wish Fresh would come back with their other body scrub, it was more of a paste consistency and AMAZING. It was called SugarBlossom.

Not a horrible product, but it definitely wasn't worth the price tag. I couldn't tell much of a difference in my skin after using it. I wish it exfoliated more (larger granules?). The scent was decent. Smelled lightly of brown sugar and flowers, but I don't think it left any scent on my skin after I used it, either. I didn't find it too oily. In fact, I think I wished it were more oily because my skin is so dry and I don't think this helped very much at the end of the day. I think Bath & Body Works has a more effective body scrub and for $53 less than this product!

Fresh performed well on my body but was not easy to clean the show when I was finished. It was a little too oily and messy for me.
Okay product but I will not buy again.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Oily Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
Too oily, no matter how you stir it. And the granules are bit too big for my liking. Also, the smell is so overpowering.
The thing that really bothers me about this scrub is the oily, it makes it hard to hold onto the jar it comes in.

I think this is a fine exfoliant to use in the shower. However, it's not any better than homemade olive oil/sugar or honey/sugar scrub IMO. Love the scent, hate the fact that it costs $65 and it's on my skin for just a couple of minutes.
I don't think I could make this at home for $65, counting the time it takes to order the ingredients separately. So, if you are completely in love with it, I guess it's worth the cash. I think, however, you can make a reasonable dupe of it by adding a little citrus oil and Vitamin E oil to a blend of olive oil and brown sugar.
Here are the ingredients, if you want to whip up your own:
PRUNUS AMYGDALUS DULCIS (SWEET ALMOND) OIL
PRUNUS ARMENIACA (APRICOT) KERNEL OIL
SIMMONDSIA CHINENESIS (JOJOBA) SEED OIL
OENOTHERA BIENNIS (EVENING PRIMROSE) OIL
PASSIFLORA INCARNATA SEED OIL
PANAX GINSENG ROOT EXTRACT
HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL
CITRUS GRANDIS (GRAPEFRUIT) PEEL OIL
CITRUS MEDICA LIMONUM (LEMON) PEEL OIL
CITRUS AURANTIUM DULCIS (ORANGE) OIL
CITRUS AURANTIUM BERGAMIA (BERGAMOT) FRUIT OIL
CITRUS MEDICA VULGARIS PEEL OIL
LITSEA CUBEBA FRUIT OIL
CYMBOPOGON SCHOENANTHUS OIL

Really? I don't see the hype. I really didn't like this. The sugar grains were too big and the base too oily. I much prefer e-tailer scubs over this and this is pretty expensive! Such a disappointment. Oh, well.
*edit* Ok, I gave it another shot and I think this is pretty nice, except it's still way too expensive.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
I absolutely love this scrub! I use it all over and it doesn't irritate my skin...even after I shave! The smell is very fresh, and the oils which I thought would be *too much,* are perfect for hydrating the skin after exfoliating it. It's rather expensive, however I see the jar lasting me awhile. The only thing that I don't like is the packaging. It's a heavy jar which tends to be slippery, however I would definitely buy it again.

This sugar scrub has done wonders for my feet! But, it also leaves my skin so silky soft and lightly scented. It's the only scrub I've used that doesn't irritate my pores after I shave my legs-- no stinging sensation! I also use the scrub on my upper arms and it does a nice job exfoliating the dryer spots. I love the product, but the price is steep. I also purchased the little wooden spoon that's available. Before I was scooping too much product out and felt like I was wasting it.

i love this stuff. my skin feels so soft after using it in the shower. the jar is a bit of a hassle...i'd prefer it in a tube. still, i'll buy it again.
