Sugared body polish - scrub by Not Soap Radio - review by js250

Come On Pretty Mama, Key Largo, Montego.....

Go Island Hopping without leaving your home!! Have a spa day with the whole set or just take an amazingly fresh and invigorating shower, the choice is yours! The scrub was gentle and effective, leaving me with soft, smooth skin and a very light fresh lemon aroma that was invigorating! Grab a set for a friend and take them Island Hopping!
Smells great.
Leaves skin very smooth
Non-irritating to skin
I want a bigger tub!!!

extremely useful review


Get soft, aromatic and sensual skin with this exfoliating sugar scrub! I have the Island Hopping aroma which is suitable for men and women. It has a fresh, clean aroma and if used with the Island Hopping body wash and perfume, will make you smell like you are in the tropics!

I love using this scrub in the shower, the aroma is fresh & invigorating, the cranberry seed bits nicely exfoliates my skin leaving it really soft and the total experience of the aroma and softness makes it feel like a spa day!

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The scrub is very thick and mealy feeling in the tub. It does have cranberry seed bits for a mild abrasive to remove dead skin. The application can vary, depending on the individual, but one applied, the oils keep it in place while infusing a light lemon peel aroma.

The texture is a bit grainy and mildly abrasive, but scrubs nicely without irritation and does not feel like sandpaper on your skin. I have experienced that with quite a few exfoliants and hate that feeling. This one invigorates and freshens without the sander!!

The sugar scrub removes easily with water and is great to use before shaving!! I always used it after I shaved, but when I used it prior to shaving, the hair was removed easier. I tried one leg with the scrub and one without for a comparison.

Taste / Aroma

I confess!! It smelled so good I actually decided to taste it for this review. Never Again! It was chemically soapy tasting and a bit sweet. DO NOT TASTE OR INGEST THIS PRODUCT!

The aroma is a fresh lemon peel with a hint of sweetness like a meringue pie. The sweetness goes away, leaving a light lemon aroma. This does not smell like cleaner, but actually like the peeling. It is a great scent for men and women. It kinds of reminds me of lemon aftershave. It has lasted faintly on my skin for about 8 hours. There is no coconut scent!!
    • Bad taste
    • Light smell


My skin is very soft and smooth. This is a great product for removing dead skin cells, but for callouses and feet it does take a few applications. It washes right off leaving a fresh clean scent that does lightly remain for a long period of time. It isn't very noticeable unless someone is very very close to you.

I love the performance of the Island Hopper set and am getting them as gifts for other people. I had to try them out first before I ordered them as gift product, but am looking forward to trying other scents!!

Personal comments

Use your hand. This works great in smaller areas allowing the scrub access to the hard to get to spots.
Use your washcloth. The universal cleaning, however, sometimes this does not allow the scrub to be used effectively. It traps the granules giving you a sandpaper feeling.
Use a sponge or bath scrunchie. A sponge or scrunchie is also a good alternative. It adds to the exfoliating, removal of the scrub and clean invigorating feeling.

However you apply the scrub, it will leave you feeling soft, fresh and invigorating.
Follow-up commentary
This is a wonderfully gentle scrub that does make you sensually soft and smells great. The spa experience at home is worth the effort to get the full set!! I am loving the fresh scent of the Island Hopping and am happy this scent can be used for both of us! My husband smell better with his than I do!

There is a wonderfully masculinity with this aroma that comes from the lemongrass. The sweetness disappears within 30 minutes and there is a light coconut/lemon peel aroma that reminds me of aftershave. I love the aroma on him when we are close. There is no aroma when you are about a foot away.
