The crossover

Whether it is a singer trying to breathe new life into a stagnant career or a company reaching out for more sales, the crossover is a very difficult maneuver to pull off successfully. If you are really good in one arena, it does not guarantee that you will find success in other areas, so crossing over can be a challenge. I have always been a little skeptical of companies that try to branch out, so when I saw that Soft & Beautiful, a famous hair care line, developed a skincare line I was thinking it would be a total disaster. Then I was flipping through Essence mag, and I saw the ads with beautiful glowing skin and I knew I had to try the products. Thus far I have used the SKIN MoistureSoft Exfoliating Body Polish and it is a really nice scrub. It is not one of those scrubs with sugar crystals swimming in a vat of oil, instead it is a very grainy scrub that exfoliates well. I was really impressed with this $6.99 scrub and it is a purchase I would be willing to make in the future. It consists of sugar crystals and sunflower oil. It is gentle yet effective.Oh and it’s paraben free!
Would you be willing to try this scrub?

I saw that ad in Essence as well, I was a little curious about the line. Maybe I'll ask someone else to buy it for me, HEHE.

Yep, I'll try it......I was skeptical about it as well when I first saw it at the store, but with your review I think I'll try it.

For the most part all scrubs seem to work for me. I've got a really good one but when that's all out--I will give this one a try!

LaurenI have the other items in the line so I will be posting on that too. I just didn't want to mix things up too much since I was testing the vaseline lotion product.
Mrs. YF lol I hope you like it.
Laughing I was thinking it wouldn't be good but it proved me wrong, really exfoliated well.

So I finally got around to purchasing this. And at first I wasn't too thrilled, sure the price was right, but it was abit too solid for me. At any rate I finally finished the entire container, and I have to admit I plan to purchase this again. Although, I'll more than likely add some additional oil to it. But it has my skin feeling really soft.

Thanks for the review adn recommendation.
