Follow with C.O. Bigelow’s Mentha Vitamin Body Wash for a minty suds session.

C.O. BIGELOW

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for everything but our skin, that is. Beat the winter blues with apothecary C.O. Bigelow’s secret weapon: Mentha Smoothing Body Buffer. With the help of invigorating peppermint, this exfoliator sloughs away dry, dull skin like a boss while waking up your senses. Rough spots be gone!

How it Works

Mint sugar crystals buff away dead skin as they nourish to reveal softer, smoother skin. Peppermint oil cools as it energizes—the perfect anecdote to a sleepy winter morning.

How to Use

While in the shower, wet skin and massage a handful of the scrub all over, focusing on dry, rough areas. Rinse and marvel at the results.

Its is totally awesome

I have been using this product for months, pure awesomeness in the skin. It leaves it nice and smooth not to mention when combine with the Mentha body soap, specially on a hot day, will leave you with a nice fresh feeling

It was okay, but won't be buying again...
Purchased

I really loved this product, but something needs to be changed with the package. The sugar gets separated from the oils, which makes it extremely hard to get out of the bottle. If you can get it out of the bottle, it's usually all sugar or all oil, it doesn't mix. I would suggest they put the product in a tub, similar to other scrubs I've purchased, so it is easy to scoop out with your hands. I lost a lot of the product because I couldn't get it out of the bottle. Because of this I won't be purchasing again.

Loved the feeling it left afterwards!

This product is supposed to smooth out rough patches. However, I don't really have any rough patches but it still leaves your skin feeling soft. The smell is really nice too and when you're putting this on in the shower, the mint relaxes you making you feel very fresh. Love using it!

One of my favorite products ever! So happy it's on Birchbox! I really love the smell, the texture, and the way my skin feels after using it. I would purchase the whole Mentha line if I didn't like trying other stuff.

When I first tried this product I didn't expect all the talk about how great it is to be true. Safe to say I had high standards. Now that I've tried it for myself I absolutely love it! My standards were definitely met! It feels so great on my skin! Love love love it and I'm going to continue to purchase this product!

Minty!

I love this buffer, It smells wonderful and the mint is a plus. It leaves you feeling soft and fresh. Most buffer does not lather at all since its just pure scrub, well this one is different and it spreads really good. The only problem i have is that the product wont come out smoothly and would sometimes get stuck so i simply poke it with a pen or a small needle.

Body Scrub

I love the peppermint tingling sensation, it really helps on my feet and elbows to get rid of that extra ashy skin. I do wish it was packaged in a different container because it is pretty hard to get out until the product is about half gone.
