I used all kinds of body scrubs and have paid a lot more for them than I did for this product. It easily stands up to the pricey products out there. I was impressed and will continue to buy it. It makes your skin so soft. It does have salt in it so if you use it after shaving it stings, but if you can get through it, it is worth it because it also fights razor bumps. I love this product and will not be without it. You just need to be careful because it can make the tub/shower slippery.

I am a bit disappointed with this scrub. I find it to be messy, and I don't love the smell. I thought the sea smell would be more fresh and clean, but it reminds me more of a cleaning product smell. It definitely exfoliates and leaves your skin smooth and soft.

Not at all what I expected

Pros

  • Fresh Scent

Cons

  • Messy
  • Very Harsh

Best Uses

  • Areas With Tougher Skin

Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Scrub, Revitalizing Sea Salt, 14.5 oz:

This product is not at all what I expected. I was looking for a gentle, moisturizing, salt hand scrub. This product is not it - using it actually hurts and the moisturizing effect does not last. It would probably work fine as a foot scrub. Too bad it is not returnable.

    Comments about Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Scrub, Revitalizing Sea Salt, 14.5 oz:

    I purchased this product after seeing a positive review in a magazine. I have normal skin that is NOT sensitive. I use this product two - three times a week as I have all other body scrubs I have used/tried.

    This product is GREAT! Now my new favorite body scrub that I will be stocking up on it. The salt is super exfoliating however, not too harsh. While the product is sometime oily/greasy in-shower it's the perfect mix with the larger salts. Your skin DOES NOT feel oily/greasy once you get out of the shower. This only leaves your skin moisturized after use.

    Bonus: The smell! It's intoxicatingly delicious-I look forward to using this product not only because of its performance and the way my skin feels after but because of the smell. It transports your shower to an island spa and leaves your bathroom smelling the same.

    Would absolutely recommend and will be re-purchasing.

      I had my reservations due to the price. I assumed if it was cheaper than other brands I have used, it would be trash.
      I have to say, using this twice a week, my skin is much softer, supple and the small bumps are gone!
      The citrus smell is wonderful and I love how my after shower lotion is working so well now.

      Daily, I use on my hands and my hands look so much younger!!

        I have severe psoriasis and this product is just great on my skin. It's not harsh and it feels/smells wonderful. I don't use it daily but about every third day or so. I highly recommend it - even to someone with sensitive skin.

            I am a scrub junkie. I look forward to taking a shower JUST so I can use this stuff. The scent is absolutely divine. Not a strong perfumely smell, but a clean, oceany, take me away to some deserted south pacific island where I never want to come home kind of smell. It is a little messy but what scrub in a tub isn't, right? Besides, you're in the shower, so what if it gets messy. It is also a little oily which it needs to be to offset the salt in the scrub. It leaves your skin nicely exfoliated, hydrated and soft as can be. I love the stuff.

            An excellent exfoliator, especially prior to shaving legs. Only con is the oil does make it slippery, and keep away from wiping your face without thoroughly washing the oil off your hands. It made my face break out, but it's not for that use!
            Otherwise made my legs and elbows feel great!

              Arizona is horrible on dry skin. This product takes off dead skin and moisturizes at the same time. I use fewer lubricating products and they keep my skin smooth and silky longer.

              I get dry patches of skin with red itchy bumps, and moisturizers do not help. I tried many porducts and this was the best product for the price. Tried $5 up to $50 versions, and love this the most. Rub this on in the spots in need in the shower and skin never gets the eczema patches!

              This stuff is seriously oily/greasy. It definitely does a good job exfoliating, but my skin is covered in the oily residue for the rest of the day. I like it, but only use it about once a week because of how moisturizing it is. It smells great, but is a bit messy to use
