    i used this in the bath to just try it out on my sensitive skin and loved the smell and how soft it left my skin. and i just used it on my peeling sunburn and its helped scrub off the dead skin AND left it moisturized enough to prevent future peeling. i'm def in love w/ this product and will continue to order it from drugstore.com because i can't find it at any of our stores. i've only found the salt scrub, which i'm sure is just as great, but i've got some salts i'm using right now, so haven't tried it yet. anyway, if you're looking for a great scrub, this is def it! and i love that it's natural! =)

    I did not like this product at all. It felt almost waxy after applying. I had to wash my skin several times to get the residue off. I did not give it one star because it did make my skin smoother, but maybe it was because of all the scrubbing I had to do to get it off. Also, the smell was too sweet - like brown sugar and maple syrup. I like fresh clean scents. I will not get this body scrub again.

    Super greasy scrub

      • Does Not Wash Off Easily
      • Too Greasy

        Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Polish, Smoothing Sugar Cane, 10 oz:

        This is the worst scrub ever as there's so much grease/oil of some kind in this product. It feels like I'm rubbing cooking oil on my skin. There so much sticky greasy substance that the scrubbing effect is lost. Like one reviewer said, I have to wash it off with a different soap many many times to remove the grease off my skin. I would not recommend and would never buy it again. If I can't return it or give it to someone else, it will likely end up in the trash can.

          Was looking for an all natural scrub and I love this! It's the perfect amount gritty but also VERY moisturizing. Smells good too, a bit tropical but still very light. I rrrreealllly think this is a very good scrub for the price.

            Does not have enough sugar to be effective with exfoliation, it's like rubbing lotion on, I need some coarseness for effectiveness...

            It smells great, but it's not going to smoothe out rough, dry skin. It will work on regular/normal skin.

                  I love this polisher. I used it before and ran out. I then tried some salt scrubs...most are too harsh on my skin. I even made my own with sugar and olive oil. It works pretty well...but this one doesn't leave me feeling so 'oily' and my skin feels softer longer after using it. Plus I love the fragrance...I could never get a good fragrance with my olive oil mix...it still smelled like olive oil. I just bought two of these so I won't run out...I can't find it in any of my local stores. I want to keep this on hand.

                    I bought this to get rid of my dry skin before a warm weather winter vacation. It has worked great so far. My only complaint is it washes away/desolves pretty quickly. Try to stay out of the stream of water when you're in the shower using it.

                      I really like the feeling of my skin after i use this product. It is smooth and also smells great. Keep in mind that this does have oil in it so it does tend to get a little slippery in the shower. Overall, great product and love using it!

                        Let me begin by saying, this product smells DELICIOUS! If you are into sweet, sugary, foody scents you will definitely fall in love with this scent. I use this product at the end of my bath or shower a couple of times a week and it makes my skin feel beautiful. It is great for dry heels and dry legs after shaving. Besides being an exfoliation product is also ultra moisturizing, I don't feel the need to use a lotion after using this. Helpful hint: Be careful not to allow water to get into the jar, as the sugar crystals will dissolve.
