great smell

Great smell that lasts. I would recommend anyone that has sensitive skin wait until the sugar dissolves a little before scrubbing. I would use 2 times a week

Effective but gentle.
Purchased

It makes the eczema on the back of my guys arms feel smoother than ever but is so gentle and doesn't irritate at all. Loves the texture and scent.

Great Product but not an overall body scrub
Purchased

I love the CO Bigelow Mentha line and tried this product thinking it would be a great overall wash in the shower for smoothing skin and rough patches. While the product is great, I would recommend stick to the rough patches with this one (elbows, knees, heels, etc) and use the Mentha Body Wash for an all over clean.

I do have to say the combination of the Body Butter and Body Wash leaves you wide awake in the morning with a fresh mint smell. Great combination but Body Butter alone isn't an all over scrub in my opinion.

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!

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.

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!

The Best!
Purchased

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!
