Love Product - But can't get out of the BOTTLE!
Purchased

I really enjoyed this product. However, I will not order it again. I read the reviews, but thought to myself... how hard can it be to get the product out? NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE!!! It's a good arm workout trying to squeeze the bottle! Seriously... no joke! I thought I had a great idea in cutting off the top of the bottle to get inside. Worked better as I can reach in and grab some of the product. But then there's no closure and my son spilled it all over the shower. :(

The problem is that the little beads of goodness that sloughs away the dry, dull skin, settles at the bottom of the bottle. This creates a "plug" for the product. The oil then sits at the top. If they could package this in a container where you can take off the lid and stir it up, it would be a whole lot easier to use!! And I would definitely buy it again and again and again....

Love it! BUT...
Purchased

I absolutely love this buffer! The menthol in it is very invigorating, especially in the morning when you've just gotten up and need something to wake you up. It leaves a nice tingly sensation on my skin and does leave it feeling much smoother. BUT... something really needs to be done about the packaging. It is extremely hard to squeeze more than a pea sized amount out of the tube. It actually takes me longer to take a shower because I spend half the time trying to get the product out. If this were repackaged in a tub I would definitely buy it again.

Brilliant product!

I'm a HUGE fan of CO Bigelow and their peppermint collection, so adding this product to my collection of products was like finding the holy grail. This is like rubbing crushed peppermint candy directly on your body. It smells and feels so good that you'll want to eat it-try to refrain!

Good stuff
Purchased

This stuff is awesome after working outside in the heat all day. It really cools you off bc of the menthol in it. The only bad thing is that it's soooooo hard to squeeze out of the tube. Other than that, I love it

Great product in the wrong packaging
Purchased

I love the minty smell of this scrub, and it has a great exfoliating consistency, but it is SO hard to get out of the tube! Even with unscrewing the top, I usually have to press the tube against the side of the shower just to get a small amount. If the same scrub was in a different container, I'd probably purchase it again, but it's just not worth the effort as it is.

What a surprise

This product is great. It I'm not crazy about the mint smell but it feel fallow on the body. Very relaxing. You can feeling a cool relaxing sensation over your skin. Would highly recommend for the hot summer days when you need to feel cool relaxed and refreshed.

Yum

This cleanser smells and feels great. It's rather thick but a dab does wonders. I like to use it to cleanse and soothe my tired, smelly, sore runner's feet.

Mixed feelings
Purchased

I was really excited to purchase this item after reading the reviews but was not as satisfied as I'd like to be. It is extremely hard to get the product out of the bottle(I actually step on it in the shower). Maybe I'm not using enough of the product, but it doesn't seem to really remove most of my bumps/dry skin. I'm again on the hunt for an affordable body scrub.
