This or That: Mango Sugar Scrub

Hi there!

I've been loving fruity sugar scrubs this summer...

Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub in Tropical Mango versus
The Body Shop Mango Body Scrub.

... and I think it's fair to say I love a good value even more!

The Tree Hut scrub retails for $6.48 ($0.36/oz.) while The Body Shop scrub retails for $20 ($2.70/oz.). Yikes.

The Tree Hut (TH) scrub smells AMAZING! It's sweet and natural at the same time... while The Body Shop (TBS) scrub kind of smells like a scented Play-Doh! It smells okay in the shower, though.

The textures of each scrub are both nice in their own way. TH is rougher. I feel like it exfoliates much better and leaves my skin feeling soft after bathing.

I used the TBS scrub in the bath, and it turned my water milky. My skin was left feeling soft, but it was on the verge of greasy.

Both scrubs are organic- that's cool.

Overall, I don't think this one is even close. I'll use up the TBS scrub, but I most definitely won't repurchase it.

Have you used either of these scrubs? What are your thoughts?

Until next time...


  1. I find the Tree Hut scrubs much too harsh for my skin. It almost hurts to use them. I love the body shop scrubs, but they have sales so often i've never bought one for full price.

  2. I've never used their body scrubs, but I love the scents of The Body Shop. Brazil Nut is my favorite aroma, I'm a perfume blogger. My favorite product of The Body Shop is the almond hand and nail cream, it's incredible. Great review.
