Pure Fiji Sugar Scrub

Pineapple, Coconut, Coconut Milk and Honey, Mango Sugar Scrubs
Pure Fiji is one of my favorite body care brands, and their sugar scrubs are my holy grail sugar scrub.  From the scents to the richness of the oils to the size of the sugar granules - they just do it for me. To the point where I've been stockpiling them.
These scrubs feature an oil  mixture of coconut, dilo nut, macadamia nut, sikeci nut, and vitamin e along with large granules of sugar.  The size of the sugar granules provide a vigorous scrub and the richness of the oils leave me soft and exceedingly well moisturized.  Be warned, these do leave oil on your skin, although I suppose that could be lessened by rinsing really well.  I don't have to use any other moisturizers after these  scrubs and the softness lasts all day.

The scent lingers all day as well, and I get more compliments when I wear these than any other scented product.  Pure Fiji has 10 different scents, and out of the ones I've sampled, the above are my favorites.  They do have one I really did not like called Starfruit, but scent preference is such an individual thing.  The newest scent offering is Orange Blossom, which to my nose is one of the softer scents in the line.

Each container is supposed to be good for 16-18 uses, but these last me much longer than that.  I'm guessing they base 16-18 uses on an overly generous estimate of scoops per use. I generally use these only on my legs due to their oiliness and the corresponding body lotion on my upper body, so one scoop is more than enough for me.

The oils will solidify in cooler temperatures, so in the winter mine look like this.

When not solidified, they are a lovely honey color.

I've talked about Pure Fiji's company philosophy and green practices when I reviewed their body butters, so I won't go into it here, but suffice it to say I view them as a quality company that makes exceptional products.  The sugar scrubs vary in price from $44-48, and can be purchased at spas that carry them (which is where I get mine), or online at Pure Fiji, Dermstore, Amazon, or other online retailers.  Amazon seems to have the best prices from what I can tell.
