My Opinion:
I was kind of surprised when I've opened this tube, because most of the scrub that I've previously used have a creamy texture, but this one was really watery, and I actually went back to the shop and ask the assistant if my tube has gone bad, and I was asured that it wasn't.

I've really enjoyed using this scrub, because it really does exfoliate without leaving a thin film over your body...., but I guess if you have dry skin, this might not be for you.

Althought I love this product I still have my complaints, usually a tube of scrub would last me around 3 months (I usually exfoliate once a week), but because of it's texture, I always end up scooping more than I need and I've actually finish my tube in a little over a month.
