This scrub has granules of sugar along with natural oils like Lemon and Sunflower seed oil to moisturize. It really sloughs off dead skin. I love how it smells nice and lathers a nice amount as well. I use this scrub before I shave to get the dead skin off. This step makes shaving easier because the razor doesn’t have to take off the dead skin because that is already taken care off. So the razor can do what it’s designed to do.
