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....

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Minty!
Purchased

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
Purchased

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.
