I ran across this at Meijer. I thought Village Naturals was only sold in Wal-Mart, but apparently they are in most stores. Regular price was $3.00, but it was on sale for $2, so you know I couldn't help myself. They have both sugar and salt scrubs. I picked the sugar.
I've never used such a basic scrub before and was kind of put off by all the oil floating on top. I thought it would be more blended. I used it this morning and hated it when I was in the shower, but now I think I kind of liked it.
I gave it a good shake to mix things up before I pulled the protective tab off. The sugar makes a great scrub and it lasts as long as you need it. I did my upper body. Good exfoliation, but I felt like a giant greaseball after using it. I did a once over with soap to get some oil off of me. Once I was out and started drying off, the oil finally sunk in so I wasn't greasy. I think if I had used this in the tub, I wouldn't have been able to get out. It does leave a greasy scum exactly where you are standing, which is dangerous.
Overall, it was okay. I will finish out the jar, but I won't repurchase. Other painpoint aside from sliding around in the shower, is the jar is very cheap, thin plastic that doesn't hold it's shape - or the lid. I couldn't get it back on straight.
