How to use
Use on the entire body by rubbing the sugar scrub gently in circular motions up towards the heart. Rinse and pat skin dry with towel – best to use a dark colored towel. We don’t recommend using this scrub on your face, as it might be too rough for the delicate facial skin. Use once a week or fortnightly.
