The Body Shop SpaFit Smoothing & Refining Body Scrub

The Body Shop's SpaFit Smoothing & Refining Body Scrub ($22) is a zesty, energizing body scrub made from 100% natural-origin caffeine, citrus, lemon and grapefruit essential oils. It claims to firm and condition skin and is gentle enough for use on all skin types.

I picked this up during one of many awesome TBS sales. It has a slight, citrus-y scent - definitely zesty, but not overpowering. I usually use body scrubs one or twice a week and this definitely has a good mix of small and medium granules in a smooth, creamy base, so its okay to use a little more than that. The packaging looks really nice, but its a pain to open and close in the shower, so I scoop some out in a small bowl and take it in. Since it foams up quite a bit and has a smooth, slippery texture, you only need a small amount each time. Its definitely not a heavy duty scrub, but a nice, light scrub for summer. Not particularly moisturizing, but definitely not drying at all. I still love the Cocoa Butter Body Scrub by TBS when my skin is terribly dry, especially in the winter. I've used this up quite a bit and haven't seen much of a firming effect, but it sure leaves skin feeling smooth, refreshed & slightly more radiant with a light citrus-y scent!
