A Modern Lady shea-moisture-coconut-hibiscus-body-scrub Review

Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hand & Body Scrub

I enjoy the body scrubs from this line for two reasons: scent and performance.

This is significant, because I’m not really a body scrub person. Add to that, if I use scrubs I prefer salt scrubs. Also, I greatly dislike fruity/sweet scents.  For me to enjoy a sugar-based, fruit-scented body scrub it has to excellent–which this is. (Why did I try this, you ask? Brand quality and rampant curiosity, beloved readers.)

  • Pleasant creamy/fruity scent
  • Packed with silky oils
  • Great post-shave treatment
  • Available at your local drugstore
  • Moisturizes, perfumes, and soothes skin
  • $10.00

The scent of this is more fruity/floral than coconut-y. I actually enjoyed it–a surprise indeed. There’s a hint of creaminess to it (the coconut?) and it lingers unobtrusively on skin for a couple of hours after use.

With every use silky oils drape your skin in moisture, as the sugar polishes your skin smooth, and the lovely scent melts away the stresses of the day. (So. Blasted. Awesome.)

Even better, it contains none of the following:


Propylene Glycol
Mineral Oil
Synthetic Fragrance
Synthetic Color
Animal Testing

  • Sugar-based scrub (Personal preference–I just prefer salt.)
  • Can dry out over time


This scrub is a lovely, daily luxury. The oil glides beautifully over skin moisturizing and perfuming it slightly while the sugar scrubs away excess dead skin.
