Birchbox Breakdown

Get ready for some serious before-and-after effects. This scrub revitalizes skin, and you’ll see and feel the evidence to back it up. The sweet poppy-scented scrub uses sugar—a natural exfoliator–to give you smooth, silky skin every time you shower. Start with one side of your body, and compare to the other, unscrubbed side for proof that your skin thanks you.

How it Works

Raw sugar crystals slough off old skin. And the three oils (grapeseed, wheatgerm, and jojoba) soak in to moisturize the fresh layer of top skin.

How to Use

After washing in the shower, dig up a scoop of sugar (right under the oils on the top of the jar). Place on body and massage in. The gentle grind means it’s working. Rinse excess off. And be careful of any run-off oils—they can be slick on a mat-less shower floor.

Sugar, Grapeseed Oil Blend, Wheatgerm Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, Cocoa and Fragrance.

Super soft skin

OMG I loved the way the Poppy scent smelled and it is a great exfoliant. I love this product and sometimes have had the scrubs burn my legs after I shave them and this product did not do that.

Purchased this and it was so worth it!

My winter dry skin needed some help so I decided to try this. The fragrance was AMAZING! The size of the tub will last me forever. I am so happy with the purchase.
The only thing I don't like is not the fault of this product, it is a fault of all oily body scrubs is that it is hard to clean off of the shower. However it is worth it because it makes my skin smell so nice and leaves it so very soft.

Okay

I looove exfoliating so imagine the excitement that I had when I saw reviews all good about this product.
Well, now I have it...

My verdict? It's okay, I mean I have definitely used better.

Pros: The size/quantity (this is obviously going to last than my previous exfoliators).
The smell; it has this light, sugary, permeating scent.

Cons: It is OILY. I had read earlier reviews, apparently my eyes were malfunctioning because I totally missed the oily part.
Unlike some exfoliators that I've used my skin didn't exactly feel softer. It felt too oily but I honestly did love the look of my skin after-use.

feels so nice

this is awesome, it really exfoliates dry skin, i felt a difference after the first use. does get your skin pretty oil, i will probably use it before bed to let the oil sink in. the smell is pretty strong, flowery but pleasant enough

Good Product

This product smells and feels great, and it does give you smoother skin. However, it's not a miracle worker. Don't have huge expectations that this product is going to completely change your skin. This product does exactly what it says it does, and that's give you smoother skin. After you get out of the shower your skin does feel a little sticky but it goes away. The smell to me is the best part about it and it stays on for most of the day. I'm not over the top crazy about it but this is overall a good product to have.

Fantastic, but not for eczema

I have been using this stuff for over a week, and I love it. It smells AMAZING and I really feel like I'm giving my skin a treat. After my shower, my skin feels so smooth and happy... except on my arms where I have minor eczema. It's not that bad at all, it just feels bumpy, and I was hoping this sugar scrub would really help since exfoliating is the best thing I can do. It definitely helps a little bit, but not a ton. But the rest of my body loves it, so that's why I don't want to dock more than one star.

Also as a warning: you may feel a little oily after your shower, but that fades pretty quickly.

Amazing!!

I bought this product based on the reviews and glad I did. I really like exfoliating my skin but it tends to be on the dry side, so I try not to over do it. When I first opened the sugar glow I noticed that there was a layer of liquid on top of the compacted scrub that was at the bottom. This liquid was very oily so I was skeptical, but oh does it leave your skin soft and moisturized. No need to put cream or lotion afterwards.

Poppy - so smooth

Although this smell reminds me of the cheap Disney soaps I bought when I was 5 years old, the sugar scrub is an excellent exfoliator. My skin is left smooth and silky after every use. I can't get enough of it, I have used almost half the jar after only having it for three weeks!

Scrub-a-dub

I'm a scrub fenatic! I use one almost every day. I bought this based on the reviews of fellow Birchbox peeps. It's pretty good. I like the scent. I like the moisturizing feeling it leaves behind. I wouldn't say it's a life changer though. I actually like the Lush brand scrubs better.
