Using this sugar scrub at home is like bringing a piece of the spa home with you. I love using sugar scrubs to really exfoliate and clean my skin. The peppermint oil has antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties so they are added bonuses to this scrub in addition to making it smell amazing!
