Drugstore Find: Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub Brazilian Nut

I discovered this at Ulta last year while hunting for a new sugar scrub.  I love the Bath & Body Works sugar scrubs but at $20+ a piece they are too pricey for me to buy regularly. I was hoping there was a cheaper alternative, and this Tree Hut sugar scrub is similar enough and only $7.50.

Out of the scents they have I like the Brazilian Nut the most. This is a large 18 oz jar. I prefer sugar to salt in body scrubs as the salt hurts after I shave. I’m sure I’m supposed to use this before I shave, but then I take all the oils off my legs shaving. What I like about sugar scrubs is the oil that’s leftover on my skin makes the need to lotion up after a shower not necessary. I like that you can just towel dry and get dressed.

The grains in this are small, some sugar scrubs can be larger and more abrasive. This one gives a good exfoliation, without the abrasive feel. The scent is slightly sweet, and has a nut oil scent, kind of similar to Ojon hair stuff. This scrub does leave less oils behind after rinsing than Bath & Body Works, so if you like to be really greasy after using a sugar scrub you may have to add some extra oil to the scrub to make it more greasy.  

The main ingredients are: sugar, glycerin, Brazil nut seed oil, shea butter fruit, safflower seed oil, evening primrose oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, macadamia seed oil, orange oil and walnut shell powder.
