It felt like pure oil. As soon as i placed my hand in the tub all that i felt was the oil and thats all. I began to use it and it was very slippery , i had to wash it off. It didnt exfoliate my skin only made it very greasy.

I agreed with the others that this product is abit disappointing. I tried their Brazil Nut Oil Scrub and that was amazingly moisturising to my skin and not hard to wash off the skin like this one. Nevertheless, I sort of like this scrub as it does moisturise my skin to the max. I have dry, ezcema skin which will be flaky and itchy if I dont moisturise it enough.This product actually gives me all the super moisture that I needed for my skin without having to apply any other lotion after bathing. But i doubt that I will repurchase if its still being sold out there..too pricey for this overly-oily stuff..

Too oily for body use. I was afraid I'd slip in the tub after using this-- my hands were so coated! The scrub is almost lost when it meets with water.
I'd rec this *only* for hands and feet if you really, really need an exfoliant plus a serious water barrier. Don't attempt to do anything with your hands after using this-- just put on some moisture gloves and (maybe) watch TV or just head to bed, but don't think you'll be able to make a phone call, read a magazine or book or do anything else with your hands because no amount of washing will get this oil off. Just chill and pamper yourself.

oh. my. god.
what a DREADFUL experience
it smells like..rotten fruit and plastic once it has come in contact with water
it felt like i has rubbing moldy thick butter all over me

Ok ladies, here's the big secret.
You use these TBS oily scrubs on your hands!
I dont really tend to use them on my body, but I tell you, use it on your hands to get your hands looking fantastic!
It does exfolitate the hands really well. The oil leaves that lovely oily moisture layer, that when you dry your hands afterwards, doesnt leave hands greasy, just lovely and dewy and moisturised - they will look years younger.
I buy these oily scrubs for my hands, and occasionally use on my body for the moisturising results. I know it's yukky to feel as though you have some sort of oily goo on your skin in the shower, but when you pat your skin dry, it's so moisturised and has a lovely scent.
I love the scent, I love what these do for my hands. Will buy for my hands alone.

YUCK!!! This product sucks to the core - greasy (it took 5 pumps of body wash to wash this lard off!!) and the horriblest texture ever!! made my legs itch like crazy too!! 0 rating if i could. to think that i actually paid 25 bucks for this crap... UGH!!! i'm glad this is discontinued!!

Oh my beloved grapeseed..why must you be discontined!!
This WAS my HG body scrub....loved the texture, the smell--the whole she-bang! After exfoliating with this, my skin felt as if I needed no lotion afterwards.
Although a little expensive, it was well worth it.

I picked this up on sale for $4 recently. The first time I used it, I didn't wash my hands afterwards and I got the oily stuff into my hair and it was impossible to get out!!!! The second time I had better luck with it. The trick is to use it on dry skin, not wet skin. massage it into your skin well, then use a good body wash after to take the greasy film off. It feels almost like baby oil...
Anyways, I wouldn't buy this again, because I hate the film it leaves, and the fact that you have to use a strong body wash to take it off. At least the smell is nice and fresh, and it does exfoliate well if you use it on dry skin. Probably better use to exfoliate with plain white sugar and honey.

I actually bought a small tub of this for around $8....I can't believe I did that. I tried it the next morning and ewww. First of all the scent is unbearable and secondly my skin felt like it was covered in a thick, heavy goop that I could not seem to get off. I rinsed for what seemed like hours and my skin was still gross-feeling. When I put jeans on, my skin stuck to them and I had a really weird feeling all day. That night, I had to take a second shower. I'm sorry, but this is not for me.

Like the other previous reviewers, I bought this on sale for $4 (originally $20 CDN). It's a waste of money. The smell in the tub does not go on at all. The scrub component melts so fast that little dead skin is actually rubbed off. All that's left is this oil and feels uncomfortable and clogging. At least I bought this on sale, I feel sorry for who ever buys this for the original price of $20. Honestly, this item should be discontinued. Also, I'm now very skeptical about buying the other scrubs from Body Shop. Ruined the brand image for me, and I had so much hope for this product. Needless to say, I won't repurchase.

Never thought that $4 could be such a waste of money.. Like others have said its "scrub" component dissipates within seconds leaving you covered in something akin to hogfat/petroleum jelly. Even though I washed this off with a shower gel, shaving afterwards was hampered with the razor getting clogged every few strokes with solidifed grapeseed grease. If you want to have a bath that leaves you needing a shower after this is the scrub for you!

This is the worst scrub I have ever used. It was on sale for $4.00 and I thought I would try it. Just the worst thing ever. I would never buy this again or probably anything similar to it.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I really hate this scrub! It's sticky, jucky, feels like syrup and it doesn't scrub nearly as much as I'd like. I got it in a swap as I liked the scent of "grapeseed" a lot. But the scent of the scrub appears to be "cheaper" somehow.
Anyway, I really don't like it and I guess I'll buy another tub of that cheap drugstore brand I used to use with great pleasure!

What a horrible product! I wish I had read these reviews before grabbing this product. I bought it thinking, "hmm. $4.00 for a scrub is cheap. How bad can it be?" The answer is really, really bad. As others have stated, this is just like covering yourself with lard. The only exfoliation you'll get is trying to scrub it off. I felt like a small animal that had accidentally wandered into an oil spill. I'll probably never use it again - if anything I don't want to use anymore of TBS' products for fear that they will be similar.

hhhmm, guess im in the minority too, but i liked this scrub. i like the feeling it left behind, i didnt have to use lotion if i didnt want.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
this product was REALLY oily ... it made my skin feel really heavy.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Brown
This product is disgusting. The salt and sugar paste dissolves almost too quickly and couldn't even do the job of scrubbing. The most awful thing about this scrub is that it is really greasy. I feel like I'm greasing myself with tons of shortening. The oily film just clings to my skin and couldn't be washed off! Definitely a waste of money.

I said that I wouldn't buy it again, but they're reformulating this to be a cream, and I might be more willing to try it after they do that.
I did love the grapeseed smell, and it did leave my skin feeling very soft afterward, but the effort that I had to put into getting the scrub off, was not worth it. When I first put it on, I thought that it just needed more water to lather, and I was shocked when I realized that when the water hit the product on my skin, it would actually bead up. I had to use a body wash on a poof to be able to wash it off. My skin felt very soft and smooth after, but I would imagine that this was because I still had a layer of it on.
I'll probably use this again on days when I serious need something to soothe my chapped skin, but it certainly is not what I would look for in a scrub. I am curious to see what it's like when they reformulate it. Thank goodness I bought this on the super-clearance discount, or I would mad!

This is a nice moisturizing body scrub. The scent is really great, as if it really was fresh grapes, not that disgusting artificial candy grape scent. It moisturizes by leaving some oil on your skin (I don't know how to describe it, it doesn't really leave a film...but I don't know what else to say) At first I thought it was a salt scrub because the particles were kind of coarse, but the packaging says its a sugar scrub, so whatever. It kind of dissolves into a white liquid when you rub it in though.

What garbage. Like salt mixed with lard. I tried it twice thinking maybe I had applied it properly but no matter how you try to water it down it pulled and I had to scrap it off my skin and then use soap and a washcloth to get it off. Horrible, horrible stuff and smelled awful too.
