Really, what’s better than the smell of a fresh-baked scone? How ‘bout the smell of a fresh-baked scone combined with the zippy tartness of lemon zest? That’d be our answer, which is just what this particular version of Crush On You (our rave-reviewed handmade sugar scrub) smells like.
It smells so nice, in fact, that it almost doesn’t matter that it also scrubs cleaner than anything we’ve ever tried while leaving you perfectly moisturized. Except that, of course, it does matter. Because Crush On You is more than a sugar scrub. We combine pure sugar with unrefined shea butter, rice bran oil and our imported pH-balanced soap to deliver a unique exfoliating-moisturizing-cleansing experience that has the texture of warm, fresh cookie batter, not a soupy, oily pool of sugar.
Great in the shower, in the kitchen (though we make a kitchen-specific soapy sugar scrub, Chef’s Scrub, too), in the bath and on kids that have decided laundry markers make great fake-tattoo application devices (don’t ask how we know).
Crush On You sugar scrubs are naturally colored using FDA-approved cosmetic grade mica, which is mined and crushed into a fine power. No heavy metals (or parabens, or phthalates, or petroleum products, or animal products) are present, ever.

I have a routine that I go through every time I finish my midterms or finals. After I've finished my last test and handed in that final paper, I realize just how gross my life has become. I've been too busy furiously studying to shower more than once every few days, I've put off doing laundry to the point where I'm reusing socks and oblivious to the fact that my favorite sweatshirt has tea stains all over it .
I take a long, relaxing shower and let myself unwind for the first time in days.
Luckily, I had two Crush on You scrubs, an exfoliating body cleanser. After shampooing my hair, I scooped out a little of the Crush on You and started scrubbing it on my arms and legs. It's a wonderful exfoliant, but the real bonus is the shea butter and sunflower oil that leave skin soft and smooth, without the need for lotion. I made everyone in my family feel my arm just to prove how well it worked and even they were amazed. It's very moisturizing, but because it has cleansers in it, you don't need to use an additional body wash, even if you're as sweaty and gross as I was.
A downside to Crush on You: I can't help but get Mandy Moore's "Crush on You" song in my head. I didn't like this song when it came out and I certainly don't like it now, but for some reason it's always there and I'm forced to just give in and hum while I scrub.
The products work well and are a joy to use and the customer service was top-notch (Product Body founder Joanna Schmidt is as sweet as they come). Each jar will also last a long time, as a tiny bit of product goes a really long way.
If you've had a stressful day (or week, or year) you should definitely give them a try. I feel like I'm at the spa every time I use them, and they'll make great gifts for any friend who deserves a little pampering. Faking Good Breeding blog on 8th Mar 2013

If you truly love the skin you're in - allow me to direct your attention to Product Body. The lovely Joanna Schmidt is the founder/owner of this totally cool line. Get this - she makes them herself. Handmade skin products! Gotta love that.
Here's what I absolutely positively LOVE:
Crush On You - A sugar shea scrubby wash that smells oh-so-good, and leaves your skin feeling as smooth as silk. The sugar acts as an exfoliator and the sunflower oil and shea butter replenish moisture.

Since I discovered Crush On You, my arms and legs are no longer scaly. My heels, which are super-prone to cracking in the cold weather, no longer become gaping wounds.
The sugar in Crush on You is a super exfoliant that doesn't clog up our drains (and our septic system thanks us), and the shea butter makes sure that after my old cells are sloughed off, my new skin layer doesn't immediately dry up like a desert. And there's always a variety of scents to choose from to suit my every mood!
I can't say enough good things about Crush On You.

"My husband tried this the other day (and let me just say that he is not a scrub kind of man), but he really liked it. He said his skin felt smooth, but he also felt clean."
The texture of this natural and vegan scrub, which contains locally produced products and organic ingredients, is, as stated on the website, similar to "extra moist sugar cookie batter."
Available in different scents, although the offerings change week-to-week based on the availability of ingredients, this scrub is gentle enough to use daily, if you desire. Kaboose on 8th Mar 2013

Wow! I never thought I would get rid of my leather skin, but once in the shower was all I needed. The texture is just as the website describes and easy to use. I had no idea what to expect of this scent...it was refreshing and invigorating and a perfect blend for starting the day. I can't say enough good things about Crush On You. My hands don't look like old lady hands anymore so this will go on my list of things to always have in stock during the winter.
Over-all, I'm in love with Product Body. I've been happy with everything I tried and wouldn't hesitate to order any one of the other selections. The best part about using everything is my new skin. This has been a hard winter and our skin has paid the price. Since using Product Body, nobody has complained of dry itchy skin. Why did I wait so long to get this stuff!!!!
