This product is rather more expensive than seems entirely reasonable to pay for a shower scrub, but I have to admit that I willingly pay it because I am just IN LOVE with this stuff! The oils in the sea salt leave your skin so incredibly smooth and soft, although they also leave your hands really slippery after using it, so be careful! Also, ladies, if you shave before you use it, it'll sting a little bit on your legs. Effectiveness Super effective! The sea salt is very scrubby and leaves my skin feeling tingly and refreshed, and the oils in it keep me from drying out and leave my skin smooth and soft. Ease of Application Since this is a scrub meant to be put on with your hands, rather than with a washcloth or a louffa, it's a little messy and takes a little while to put on. It feels great, though, and is worth the effort. Scent While the scent may be a bit strong for some people, I found it simply delightful. I'm particularly fond of the lavender scent.
