I am convinced I have the craziest skin ever - it's dry all over my body and so prone to getting all oily and acne-d on my face.  I can never figure out how that works, but I am not complaining too much - it's just another excuse to stock up on lotions and potions!  To sort out the dry bits and corners, I love trying out body butters and scrubs, and Burt's Bees Honey and Shea Sugar Scrub with coconut oil, shea butter, almond oil and the scrubby power of sugar and almonds is my new skincare favorite.  This scrub comes in a wide-mouthed tub and would last me about 2 weeks if I were to use this daily (I don't - about twice a week at the most).  To keep the product clean, I use a dry spoon to scoop out the scrub and take care not to get any water into the product.  The scrub itself is a brownish, wet (with oil), sugary mixture with a few scattered specks - not sure what they are, probably almond skin.

This sweet-smelling scrub looks a little dryish in the tub, but I find the sugar-oil ratio just right when used on slightly damp skin.  The mixture is a little crumbly, and bits do tend to fall off as I am applying this, but it's not so much that I find it unnecessary wastage.  This a gentle scrub, but I find this a little harsh if used with too much pressure and/or on dry skin.  The scrub is easy to wash off and leaves behind a slight oily residue on the skin.  Normal skin types can skip a moisturizer afterwards, but I have superdry skin, and by the time I am done toweling, I don't mind a little extra lotion just to seal in the moisture.  I do use this as an all-over body scrub, but I don't stick to a regular routine with it (too lazy), and I use this more often as a foot scrub.  With just one use, I found my feet smoother and moisturized enough to continue using this on an almost daily basis.  Needless to say -  happy feet ever since! :D

Overall, the Burt's Bees Shea and Honey Sugar Scrub is a fabulous drugstore buy, especially if you are looking for products with natural skincare ingredients.  I use this as a body/hand/foot scrub and always assumed that's what this is, but I have read reviews where people use this on the face.  I have oily-combination/sensitive skin on my face, and personally, at least for me, I would think this is too harsh and perhaps a bit too oily for use on the face.  Because of the oil content in the scrub, it can leave the bathtub/bathroom floors a little slippery, and I have to soap-clean the bathtub after I am done - and that's the one big reason why I don't use the scrub more often :P
