Ok I think they need to make a YouTube video on the different ways to uses this sugar scrub. The first time I tried one was over two years and I hated it, tried using little pieces, it kept getting to wet and soggy and most wet right down the drain. Then about six months ago a mini one came in a gift box and tried it dry as a body buff, after a couple uses it became to hard and ruff. I grounded it up and mixed with shower gel and it turned into a sloppy mess( maybe to much shower gel) so last month I get a wild hair up my butt and ordered anyone, determined to find out what everyone was raving about. So this time I stuck it in one of the large black pots(1sugar scrub makes a little over half a pot) and sprayed just a splash of water in it. It makes a very thick paste and a little goes a long way. BEST SCRUB EVER! It's not moisturizing at all but my skin was so smooth afterwards. It seems to have large and small grits so it really polishes the body. My advise, buy one( I'd get it from UK , they are much cheaper) cut it in three or four large pieces and see which way works for you. Also is a good dry substitute for a foot Scrub. I've already bought two more to stock up.

I am a fan of Lush but this is unfortunately the first product of theirs I have strongly disliked. Like many others, I found it scratched my skin and left tiny scratch marks. It also, when wet, hardened to a rock-like consistency and when crumbled apart there were 'crystals' of grains in it that made it too painful to use.
It smells nice, and I used it on my feet to get some use out of it but I will definitely not be buying again or recommending it.

I just started working at LUSH for some seasonal cash, and the team of regular associates let me in on a tip for their solid sugar-based scrubs:
break off a piece, then mix with your favorite shower gel.
This goes great with the Grass shower gel. It makes it easier to smooth on (you don't lose grains as you are applying) and gets two steps done in one motion!
I really like this scrub, but I do agree that with no instruction it is a bit of a mystery as far as how to apply.

I purchased this when looking for something gentler than the sea salt scrub. It's an okay product, but not really worth the price. It's a pain to grind down and because it doesn't come in a package, I find myself wasting a lot. It's a mediocre exfoliater, smells nice and leaves skin feeling soft and smooth (but not for long). The product itself lasts quite a while though. Wouldn't recommend considering there are lots of cheaper drugstore alternatives.

Very impressed with this scrub , I have keratosis pilaris on my legs and thights , this scrub does smooth out my skin and make it look more even toned and clearer , the nasty red dots of KP condition are less noticable now , I followed it by sephora body butter .. It works great for me , if u need some too abraisive scrub for your stubborn skin this will help a lot , if u have delicate already perfect skin then save ur money this stuff isn't for u .. It's expensive for what u got I consume it up in 5 showers !! It costs around 10$ where I live .. And that's my only complain I wish they had it in bigger mold .. However I'm definitely repurchasing ;)

Break a very small part off, don't let it touch the water, then rub in. It's not that difficult. Don't rub hard, just rub softly. That should avoid scratching the skin. I've used it several times now and I have no scratches and almost my whole bar left. Bumps on my arms are gone. Ingrown hairs under arms, around bikini and backs of thighs are lessened. Skin feels amazingly soft. Scrubbed my legs before shaving (why would you do after??) and as a result I got a closer shave; stubble doesn't come back as fast. Best of all is the smell. Reminds me of grass. What a divine product. Skin has never been this soft.

Good gracious, all mighty! This smells fantastic! I see that this was painful for quite a few of you. I am dry as a bone from the neck down so I am all about some sandpaper scrubs, as long as it doesn't have salt.
I am so glad the SA warned me not to take the whole thing in the shower because if I had the same experience as some of you, I would have been hot. I do wish it came in a tub, though. I break pieces off and then put it in a LUSH soap dish lid and set it outside the shower until I am ready to use it.That is a pain, especially since I have curious cats that like to hang out in the bathroom while I am in the shower. At any rate, it's a nice little treat now and then but more trouble than it's worth.

I bought this scrub expecting it to leave my skin soft, smooth and blemish-free. It just scratched my skin and had the same effect as sandpaper would, but cost me more money. I dropped it in the bath by accident and it completely disintegrated despite immediately retrieving it.
This scrub might just work better on less sensitive skin than mine. I'm still looking for a body scrub to control random breakouts on my shoulders and back, I guess I'll have to keep looking.

I bought this product as it had mentioned it helped with cellulite, something I have become obsessed with banishing!
The girl in the shop had let me know not to take the full block in the shower as it would disolved, so I shaved a block off it and took that into the shower! WOW..... this item is quite abrassive and I can see why some people on here find it too harsh, however it my skin has never been so soft and my cellulite seemed alot less obvious after using it!
The smell is really fresh too and even though I use this every week (sometimes twice a week if applying fake tan), I still have over half a block left.
The only downfall, which seems consistent through-out these reviews, is that the item can be confusing to use, especially if you havent been explained by the SA. Would be much better if the ground it down to a power/scrub and put it in their black pots.
Also, the price isnt bad at all, considering its lasted me nearly 2 months!
Will be using this on my goosebumpy arms next!

this is best! but I found the best way to use it is to crush it up.....i put is in a plastic bag.... wrap that with a towel and beat the hell out of it with a hammer. I put in a container and then when Im ready to use i take a bit out and put in the top of the container....you dont want to dip wet hands in the container it will ruin it. With this method you have more of a lose sugar to scrub with its less abrasive or you can have bigger chunks (whichever you prefer) and if they are to hard if you put a little water on it will melt ( do not run under the water) just rub on your wet skin gently and then sqeeze it in your fingers and it will break up. All that being said nothing makes my skin feel better then this and I've tried alot of sugar/salt/ whutever scrubs. I know the key to this one is just finding an easy way to use it. I dont have any problems with scratching my skin or abrasiveness...just smooooooth soft skin! And if you break it up it last for a month or 2 depending on how often you use making it very inexpensive....just took one lippie off bc i have to take a hammer to it to get it ready for use.

For a long time I couldn't really decide if I liked this scrub. I have used many LUSH scrubs in the past including RubRubRub and various others however I wasn't as impressed with Sugar Scrub. When I first used it, I made the mistake of dipping it under the water before I used it; this was a bad idea and the water seeped into it and made it fall apart; however there were no clear instructions that you shouldn't do that. When I eventually came round to using it, it was very harsh on my skin, I don't have particulary sensitive skin however it felt like someone was scratching at it, whereas RubRubRub is very gently yet leaves your skin feeling softer at the end of it. Sugar Scrub left my skin red and it didn't really feel any softer. I wouldn't recommend this product if you have very soft/sensitive skin; I would opt for RubRubRub as it leaves a much softer feeling and very moisturised!

Ok i'll start by saying I can understand why people don't like this product if they are taking the whole thing in the shower and rubbing it on them. What I do is take a knife and shave down a bit (I honestly don't even need a full tbsp) and then I take the grains and use that in the shower. DONT use it under the water cause it will disappear! I step out of the water flow, rub the product on and then rinse. My skin has never felt so soft. I will repurchase again and again.

Sorry for my language, but this sucks! The scent is the only thing I liked. I'm not an idiot on using scrubs but this made me feel like I was doing something wrong as it left raised welted scratch type marks on my skin right after the shower. It hurt to use so I tried to soften the scrub in case it was too firm but that did nothing. And the next day, I had a couple spots that were actually long thin scratches. This product is absolutely awful and its in your best interest to NOT PURCHASE it. I would have given then NO Lippies if the rating system would have let me - Blah! I will stick with my Qtica Lemon Sugar scrub, which is awesome!

this thing hurts!! maybe there is a better way to use, but i took the little half dome and started scrubbing. like others, it literally cut me and left little scratches all over. i didn't really have a problem with it melting away quickly but it did seem to get scratchier over time. it does work really well as a foot scrub though. in fact i just bought one for my husband who was looking for something particularly scratchy for his feet. would repurchase for that purpose only.

Very rough scrub, I use it on my legs, does make your skin feel soft if you can handle a rough scrubbing. The smell is nice, doesn't last though.

I had to throw away this scrub. It was painful to use and left scratches on my skin which subsequently broke out in massive hives. I felt silly for trying something new. I used to use a sugar scrub from Trader Joes all the time and was looking for something similar. Ouch!!!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Red, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
I really like the way this left my skin. It left it soft and smooth. The scent smells really good. It smells like somethingsweet and flowery. I noticed that other reviewers said that it felt a little to much like sand paper/gritty rocks. I didnt experience that since it didnt scrub that hard on my skin. What it didnt like was that as soon as it hits water it dissolves very quickly. So when this happened i was scrubbing really fast. I guess next time I am going to put this in a ziplock bag and break it up because it is kind of pricey and you only get a one time use and it is worst if water hits it.So i give it 4 lippies only because it dissolves like a bath bomb which it isnt.

I personally love scrubs as they've helped me with my slight condition of Keratosis Pilaris(goose bumps) behind my upper arms. I started using the sister brand of Bliss, Soap and Glory's sugar scrub and it has helped but when I passed by Lush for the first time, I wanted to try out a delectable coconut sugar scrub which came in form of a half dome.
I paid about $4-$5 for it and was quite confused as it was sort of coming apart in the package, although not in pieces, enough that I was a bit cautious of wasting all in one use. So I cut it in half and brought a chunk with me. The minute it hit the water it began to DISSOLVE like no other! So I had to quickly scrub while losing precious amounts between my fingers. It left a divine, not overly greasy, sheen over my skin, and it smelled amazing!
Definitely glad that I saved the other half, I will be placing it in a tub when I go into the shower next time as to keep from going down the drain next time!

The first time I bought a sugar scrub it was for a friend and the SA gave me a little plastic tub to store it. He recommended crushing the scrub before using it so it would last longer. Best advice ever! When I buy sugar scrubs for myself, I crush them in a plastic baggie put it in a container to keep in the shower and I pour a little bit out at a time. It scrubs with the perfect amount of abraisiveness and lasts a long time. I use it at the end of my shower so my skin stays soft and lightly scented all day long.

This product was somewhat of a disappointment. I got this as part of LUSH's Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes package where you get 9 products for $25. I was saving this for a while because I knew from online reviews that it's only good for a use or two before basically self destructing into a pool of green crystallized goo. I used it in the shower and kept it away from the running shower water. It was a bit rough and hurt a little bit, but I liked it alright. I'm not in love with the scent, but it's alright. It seemed to crumble up in the shower even though it barely got wet.The real problem started when I set it on my counter on the bag it came in. My dad went in my bathroom and came out and asked me what the green goo on my counter was. It had almost completely melted in one use! It was really messy, and I figure it's good for one more use.
The next week (a few days ago), I went to a LUSH store for the first time, where they were doing a demonstration on the B Electric shower gel (it smelled amazing!), the sugar scrub and two other products. They ground up the sugar scrub instore, which I think is somewhat dishonest because they didn't wanna show how crumbly it is when it's packed into a solid and not crushed into a fine powder. This is probably one of my least favorites from LUSH.
