"If you have tried the BBW Golden Scrubs from the signature lines, this is like those. This scrub is larger in course size and there is oil left behind, but you still get the exfoliation smoothness. The fragrance is amazing and strong; it's a bit overbearing but because of that it works so much faster. You'll feel oily in the shower and a but slippery under your feet but after you rinse and dry yourself off, you feel fine and moisturized. If your scrub isn't oily, you'll feel dry and you'll need to put lotion on right away. With this one, you can wait a while."
"I absolutely love the feeling of this hand scrub, I massaged it into my skin and it felt wonderful. However, the smell was unbearable. To me, it stunk terribly. I don't understand how something can feel so amazing on your skin, but to smell so bad. Personally, I loved the product but couldn't bear the smell, so that's why I wouldn't recommend it to a friend."
"I have used this for over 10 years. The packaging has changed a little over the years but the product has not, that I can tell. I mostly use this on my hands and feet. I use this on my feet when I self-pedicure every Sunday and my feet feel like a baby's bottom. Be sure to wipe the nails with alcohol to get the oil off so that your polish will stick. After I do my hands, I use the matching lotion and my hands don't tell my age--60! The fragrance will relax you. Feel like you've been to an expensive spa. Highly recommend!"
"This is one of my favorite BBW products ever! I received this as a gift the first time I tried it and I went back for more when it was all gone!
The oil helps moisturize and soften your skin - just rinse properly or you'll get it all over your stuff! I tend to use my sugar scrubs at least once a week or when I know I'm in a rush and don't have time to lotion up after showering. When you use it during warmer showers, the scents rise and it stays in the air with the steam - it's excellent when you're having sinus problems or stress, so soothing and calming. Some of the BBW scents make me feel nauseous so I have to be careful but this one is just right. Not too strong.
I saw a review about pre-shaving use too! I agree, it is also a great way to soften the skin for a smoother shave but I don't like to waste it quickly so I just use my shower gel for those times.
Anyway, great product! I recommend it. I'll have to try their other scents. :)"
"I have been a customer for years! I've been the type of customer that buys a lot of different stuff because I'm not attached to one specific scent! I was in the process of walking my baby out (I'm OVERdue) so my husband and I stopped in. My husband was the first to pick up the stress relief line and give it a sniff. He immediately called me over to smell it. I was HOOKED! I wanted to buy every product on this line. They have TONS of different stuff. We ended up buying This product, the stress relief scrub and we also purchased 2 of the 3 wick candles. I've NEVER written a review for a product because let's face it, I'm lazy. But here I am, suffering through contractions at 41 weeks pregnant, oooooohing and aaaaahing about this stuff. I will buy it until it is discontinued. I'm actually going to go back and buy the lotion, shampoo, conditioner, and whatever else I can get my hands on. My husband loves it too! We do massages with this scrub in the shower and it is so relaxing before bedtime! I would invest in this product if I were you!"
"While I am totally and utterly IN-LOVE with the other BBW scrubs, this one smells a little medicinal to me. While it does however deliver on its promise to rejuvenate the skin, I think that the Eucalyptus is a bit much here for me. Try and enjoy if you like."
"I have never used a sugar scrub before so I wan't sure what to expect. I am in love with this sent and can't get enough! This scrub separates a bit, so you will need to shake or mix it with your fingers a bit before you use it, but then just rub it on. It might be a bit too rough on sensitive skin since it is a scrub, but it was perfect for me. And my skin never felt so soft and smooth!"
"I have been buying products from Bath and Body works but for the first time i bought this sugar scrub and found it delightful. The smell is heavenly and it leaves a thin film of moisture that is quite nice. This is also the first time i am compelled to write a review about any product and that itself should suffice. Highly recommended. Am even thinking of trying out the wallflower fragrance bulb of the same."
"I tried this at my MIL's house and absolutely love it! Yes, it is oily but I view it as a lovely moisturizing component. It will only make the shower floor slippery if you poor the oil on the floor. :) The scent is absolutely incredible and really does seem to wash stress away, in a manner of speaking!"
"After trying a few other brands of sugar scrubs this is hands down my favorite! The fragrance is fresh, clean, and relaxing and it leaves your skin feeling very moisturized and smooth. You don't even need to apply a moisturizer after using it! I am a grad student and bought this for finals week, and I have to say that using this scrub is something that I look forward to when I'm really stressed. A little pricey, but worth it in my opinion if you need a few minutes to relax."
"It is too bad that bbw decided to put this product into a smaller jar. I use to purchase this product by the cases full, especially when bbw had their Semi Annual Sales. I stopped purchasing the product when they placed it in a smaller jar. I was told that the price did not change per ounce, but unfortunately it will cost you more per year to purchase the item. When it was in the large 20 ounce jars, you did not have to purchase as many jars per year. Now days, with the economy as bad as it it, it would be nice to find a company that takes pride in helping the resident of the US, rather than itself. I think those companies would find themselves making more money than they ever thought possible. People are loyal to those who are loyal to them, but companies, including bbw, seem to loyal to one thing and person and that is, the CEO and all the other people at the top.
When my Daddy was alive, I even got him hooked on the product. We are both diabetics and it is a wonderful product for the feet.
I will start purchasing this product again if bbw will bring it back in the larger jars. Until then I will use something else for my feet."
"At first it took a couple times to get use to this, but I abouslutely love it! There really isnt any mixing to it, the sugar is too heavy so i just pinch out small scoops. Yes the oil can be slippery but if your careful its not an problem. I don't have issues with the shower floor getting slippery. This is a wonderful, intoxicating, refreshing scent. Everything i have tried in the scent(which is most) has been a hit. It does help to relieve stress and relax while also invigorating and helping focus. Whether or not you love this product really depends on how you prefer a scrub to be but either way i highly recommend. I love the oil it doesnt feel greasy or heavy to me and makes my skin so soft and smooth. The grains are large and do great exfoliating but depending on your skin type it may be too harsh for everyday use, though the oil does help to even the harshness out.
Id recommend at least trying the scrub in the store if youre not sure if it would be something you would like. Also highly recommend this scent in general, you can't go wrong with it!"
"It's just sugar and oil in a jar. I love the fragrance but I feel like this leaves the bathroom super slippery. I say just get the lotion if you want to be moisturized and smell like this. Or get a body wash. An oily shower floor is dangerous."
"Being using these products for yearsssssssssssssss. Never disappointed me. This scent has always been my favorite. Try others from the store but this one is amazingly wonderful. The menthol in this product is a hit."
"This is crazy! It relieves all tension and stress, Just taking of whiff of this relaxes me. Geez, I'd recommend it to anyone who's even slightly stressed. Find time to take a shower or a bath and use this! Your skin will love you too!"
"I recently just started using this body scrub and I absolutely LOVE it! Some people think the sugar is harsh but I've been using it everyday and my skin is super soft and smooth. It is pretty greasy considering it is made of oil, but I've found that it moisturizes my skin so I don't even have to use lotion after the shower. The best is the scent! I've always been a huge fan of all the eucalyptus spearmint stuff....but I think because this has the essential oils it lasts literally all day into the night...love it!"
