The natural fruit oils make this scrub very hydrating, but I do find that it leaves my shower/tub a bit slippery after using it. The scrub itself does a great job exfoliating your skin, and it makes me feel completely moisturized when I get out of the shower. The scent has a nice sugared lemonade aroma with a very light hint of strawberry. It smells wonderful while you're using it, but the scent doesn't linger on your skin or interfere with other scents you may apply after usage. Hint: Use this outside of your shower or bath too! This tub is huge at 15 oz., so I transfered some of it to a smaller jar and keep it on my kitchen sink for a quick exfoliating and moisturizing treat for my hands and cuticles.
It looks like a Slushie! As I mentioned, this product is packed with natural fruit oils, so I normally give the jar a good shake before using it to get the oils mixed in. You'll notice when you first open the jar, that the oils are at the top of the product.
I like to use a scrub once or twice a week during the winter months, because I find that they do a great job of alleviating any itchy or flaky skin that tends to occur from the cold weather and lower humidity. Exfoliating your skin also helps your moisturizer to absorb better, and brighten and smooth skin tone. Here's a look at the ingredients:
