All the way from the Mediterranean Sea

Lemon and orange extracts combined with salts from the Mediterranean sea come together to form the wonderful scrub pictured above. The invigorating lemony scent of Loccitane Verbena Body Salt Scrub can really give you a pick me up in the morning. The salt grains start out hard but begin to almost melt as your scrub your body.
I tried a Loccitane scrub before and it was ok but this one is so much better and I would certainly purchase it again. I was looking for a scrub that would be comparable to the fabulous Fresh scrub but for less money and this is the closest I have come to finding a match.It also comes with the cute little wooden shovel shown in the picture above. I don’t really need the shovel, but there I am every morning scooping away, it brings me such joy.
Note Do not shave your legs and then use this scrub it will BURN something awful as I discovered this past weekend.
This scrub is sold for $34.
How do you keep your body smooth year round? Spa treatments? scrubs? vaseline????

i think i told you before about mixing sugar and evoo (you can also add essential oils for added scent). i really like that and it's ok to used after shaving.

also to make your skin softer, after bathing put baby oil on and then hop back in the hot shower again.

I LOVE L'Occitane products!! Plus you said this scrub smells like lemons -- delightful!! :-)

I love L'Occitane products and usually stock up on favorite during the semi-annual sale.
To keep my skin smooth, i use sweet almond oil after showering and coconut oil or shea butter for their moisturizing properties.
My scrub is Karen's sugar scrub...it is just amazing!
i tried once making my own scrub..it looked a mess. So now, I leave the work to the professionals.

@Fresh and Fab when you see it in a store take a snif and tell me what you think
@BGG what do you like most from the line?
@Nywele what did you use to make your own scrub?

Hey PJD,

Vaseline does wonders, but I also use body butter and sugar scrubs. The spa regularly doesn't hurt either!

I've been using Clinique and Giovanni's scrub, but looking for something new.

Now I have a reason to stop by the Loccitane store next time I'm in the mall.

I've been adding essential oils such as sweet almond oil, jojoba, coconut oil to my lotion. However, I recently switched over to Nature's Gate's Papaya Moisturizing lotion and my goodness it keeps my skin oh so soft!
