Let me start by saying I don't like the smell of the divine oil, which I got of sample of with this purchase. Both the scrub and the oil smell the same to me--bad. The scrub is strange--you sort of have to pull a chunk of it off and mix it with water. I use it on my legs before shaving but try to keep it away from parts closer to my nose because the smell lingers. It works okay, but no better than cheap drugstore scrubs that don't have a bad smell.
I bought this scrub because I am so in love with the Caudalie Divine Oil. It really wasn't what I expected. The granules are very small and the scrub is thick. You have to use a lot of it because if you mix it with water, it turns milky white becaues of the oils and still doesn't spread on the skin well. Also, somehow the scent is different in the scrub than the oil. The fragrance of the scrub is very overpowering. The first time, I used it on my entire body and it was just too much. It bordered on gross.
I tried again and used the scrub on just my legs before shaving. That worked out really well. The shave was very smooth and my legs felt and looked amazing afterwards. And using it on just my legs, the smell was fine.
