I tried it ... Korres Basil Lemon Body Scrub

I snagged this body scrub at Sephora ... one) because Korres gets high ratings for their natural skincare products, two) the scent sounded refreshing, and three) I am always looking for a good body scrub.
Priced at $21, this scrub failed to 'wow' me. First of all, the scent wasn't very fresh. It was kinda dull and bland. I love me some aromatherapy while steaming up in a hot shower, and this one didn't cut it. For an all over body scrub, the granuals weren't very coarse either, not exfoilating very well. It did leave behind a light oil, which was nice for a little extra moisture. The Lemon Basil Scrub was gentle enough to use on your face, but even at that, I prefer St. Ives Apricot Scrub to this one.
I wouldn't say that I am disappointed in this scrub, but I definitely wouldn't purchase it again. I prefer a little bit tougher of an exfoiliant, but for those who like just a little bit of a scrub, this is your kind of body buffer!
I bought a couple of other products by Korres, so stay tuned for those reviews! Have you used anything by Korres? What were your thoughts? What is your favorite body scrub that you recommend I try??

Oatmeal. No scent, natural, inexpensive and it works like a charm. Your skin will feel smooth and silky - I use it from head to toe.

I love shopping at Sephora. Don't usually buy anything because I never have any $$$ lately but it's always fun to see what's new.
