This is the best scrub I have ever tried, and I've tried a lot of them. I've tried the sugar, salt, and volcanic ash scrubs that quick dissolve in the shower and sometimes even leave a residue on my skin that then has to be scrubbed off. I've tried the peach, honey & oatmeal, and walnut shell scrubs that are a cream with scrubbie particles suspended in the goop.
This stuff does not dissolve and is scrubbie particles with just enough wonderful-smelling solution (goop? gel?) so that you're not using a powder to scrub. Unlike the other similar sized products that last me 3-4 months, this 6.2 oz. tube last me about 6 months, used 2-3 times a week.
For me, it's well worth it to spend the extra many to get this that works WONDERFULLY, instead of spending less for something leaves my skin feeling clammy and unscrubbed.
