Do you use a body scrub? How often? Sugar or Salt?

Once per week - salt for me. Sugar scrubs break me out just about everywhere on my body. I just moisturize with a cream-oil after and my skin is soft for the whole week. Love my salt scrubs!

I don't mind.

I only use sugar scrubs.....they seem to dissolve better and in case there are any nicks on me, no stinging!

Right now, I am loving Trader Joes' Lavendar sugar scrub. Leaves me hydrated and is only $5.99.

Sugar is less dehydrating than salt however I do love Amazing Grace Hot Salt Scrub applied with pumice gloves once a week. I use the exfoliating pumice gloves with body wash almost daily though. Have a pair on constant rotation (the must be kept clean)

Unless you are doing scrubs for the "experience," meaning the ritual and the scents, I would buy a Salux cloth. It works just as well as the scrubs without the expense or the mess. Having said that, Gingerbread Man from Philosophy is still my favorite scrub because I love the scent so much.

I second the use of the Salux cloth. I don't bother with messy scrubs anymore since I discovered it, with the help of the wonderful ladies on this forum.

sugar scrub, I make my own with sugar/olive oil and add a few drops of essential oil like orange or tangerine

I use Phil. Microdelivery Body Wash, mix one pump of this in with my regular body wash on a pouf.

I've been using an exfoliating peach (facial) cleanser from s. somers. It's gentle and my skin feels so smooth. Use it all over from head to toe. Good organic ingredients and no toxins.

No scrubs for me!

I can't even explain to you how much more my salux + dry brushing have done for my skin than any scrub has ever done. I'm not one to exaggerate results; on the contrary, I usually err on the side of thinking products do nothing for me. Honestly, my arms, legs, backside, etc. have never in my life felt the way they do right now, even without lotion applied.

I love philosophys salt scrubs. Feel both soft and detoxed! No messy oily stuff to deal with either.Last edited on 1/15/2012

I do use them. I cannot use salt, especially in the winter. It actually will burn my skin when it is particularly dry.

I love a sugar based scrub, and use it at least once a week.

I love my Salux cloth, too, but I still do a sugar scrub once a week. My current favorite is Shea Terra Organics Bourbon Vanilla Shea Butter & Sugar Scrub--not only does it exfoliate but it moisturizes as well. And the smell is divine! {#emotions_dlg.tt1}

Salux cloth (Board rec) and Jan Marini makes a wonderful glycolic body scrub. I use it about once a week maybe every ten days. The salux almost every day. Depends on time.

I use a sugar scrub on my hands, because salt scrubs dry my skin out and burn. I never heard of the Salux cloth...will check that out. Thanks!

Another vote for the Salux. Use it daily with my new addiction to Philosophy body washes. Go to www.saluxshop.com, they have great customer service and are very reasonable.

Thanks for the tip. Is this for face, body or both?

Where does one buy pumice gloves? I've never heard of these, but I think I need them!

Thanks!

I use a body scrub once a week. I ran out of my Trader Joe's salt scrub but I think I found a new love....Lush's Buffy bar. {#emotions_dlg.tt1}

No body scrubs for me - I use a soft nylon scrubbie "pouf" and moisturizing shower gel and my 63-year-old skin is smoooooooooooooth as a baby's bottom.

I was always taught to respect my elders, but it keeps getting harder to find one.

I exfoliate daily with soap and bath gloves. No special products needed!
