Sugar & Shea Body Scrub
Size: 8 oz
- Simultaneously buffs and moisturizes skin
- Packed with naturally effective exfoliants like sugar, kaolin clay and crushed azurite
- Packaged in a mess-free tube
Don’t get us wrong, we love a good sugar scrub. But sometimes digging it out of a jar can be all kinds of messy. So we made a luxuriously rich, non-toxic sugar scrub that you squeeze out of a tube. Yes, way. The formula not only polishes skin, but also deeply moisturizes with nourishing oils and shea butter and detoxifies with kaolin clay and crushed azurite (which gives it a natural blue color). We’re pretty stoked about it, too.
Squeeze a small dollop onto skin and massage in circular motions, then rinse.
Over time, the sugar crystals and oils naturally separate. If this happens, shake the tube a few times to help redistribute the formula.
WARNING – Please use caution when leaving the shower as the oils in this body scrub can make surfaces slippery.

Did not like this scrub…I felt like it left a film on my skin and actually dried it out more so than other scrubs. I used it at night and felt like I needed to take a shower in the morning to get clean.
great for dry legs
I haven’t had a problem with the packaging, and agree that with the oiliness of the product, glass could slip our of your hand and break. I wish there was a more biodegradable tube though. The product itself is fine for the very dry skin on my legs which regular lotion does not help at all. Yes, the scrub leaves an oily feeling on the skin, but you can blot it with a towel and it penetrates somewhat as the day goes on. My skin looks and feels a lot more hydrated. I find the scent to be pleasant also.
Check out my soft elbows!
I am all about this scrub – it is really exfoliating, smells great, and rinses off leaving your skin really moisturized. I saw some negative reviews — mostly about the packaging — but I don’t have the same issues. I suspect once the bottle gets really low, I will just cut open the bottle in order to scoop out the remaining product. I anticipate this one to be in heavy rotation!
Love the Scrub, Not the Packaging
This scrub came highly recommended and I was so excited to try it especially with summer travel approaching. I have normal/dry skin and really like the rich consistency of this scrub and moisturized glow it leaves behind. I gave it only 3 stars because the packaging needs major improvement. On my first use it burst at the crease allowing product to come out. I’ve never experienced that with another brand. I also noticed another reviewer with a similar experience so it sounds like a flaw in the packaging. The tube makes it difficult to get product out. After one use, I had to almost roll the top down like a toothpaste tube to get product. Not sure if this was because of the burst in the packaging, but nonetheless, it’s a great product itself and I would try it again. Love the idea of a tube for travel/vacation purposes, but with faulty packaging I’d be cautious of it bursting in your luggage.
Sugar and Shea Scrub Away
I love body scrubs because I enjoy the exfoliating feeling on my skin when I shower in the mornings. This product feels non-abrasive but helps remove all the dead skin and build up that sits on your skin after product usage. I enjoy that it is not scratchy and has both a lovely smell and texture to it. I typically use it twice a week, about every 3-4 days and it makes my skin feel rejuvenated.
I was very excited to receive this as gift since I usually love Follain products. However this scrub left my skin feeling tacky and dirty and I cannot wait to shower it off. It’s hard to explain, but even my clothes feel weird on my skin after using this scrub. Not sure what went wrong here, but this definitely needs a new formulation.
Try again please
I love Follain so I hate to say this but this is a miss. The first bottle I got of this exploded out of the creased top and the finish of the bottle wiped off completely on the first use. I brought it in for a swap and the woman at the store was so sweet and apologetic, got a new bottle no problem. The next day I go into the shower and I have the same problem with the finish rubbing off immediately and then still can’t get the product out of the bottom. Now I have to lean the bottle on its top in between other bottles to keep the product from clogging the hole and wipe of bottle residue every time I use it. I was so excited to get a scrub without a screw on lid but I’m wondering if this is the reason most places stick to that.
The product inside is nice – I like the consistency, smells good, and keeps me moisturized – but the packaging makes this not worth it unfortunately. I hope they fix this issue!
I love this body scrub! Paired with the body oil after a shower, my skin feels soft and moisturized. Great for daily use because it’s exfoliating without being harsh. Gentle, clean scent that doesn’t linger.
AMAZING product for soft, hydrated skin
We hosted a party at Follain (great experience) and they demo’ed this product. It was absolutely the most purchased item from the party because everyone was stunned by how smooth and soft it made our skin. Now that I own it, I am getting consistent results with it. If you have dry skin, especially in winter, this is for you! Enjoy!
Not for me
I got this when I ran out of the body scrub I was using. It left my legs feeling sticky. It felt more like a polish than a scrub. I was not a fan and wound up exchanging it for another product. It didn’t feel like a scrub at all.
Best Scrub - EVA!!!
I love this scrub, ordering my second round. Only thing is the packaging needs work, not effective and flawed but the product is LIFE!!!
I am in love with this scrub I am ordering some more 😍😍
I love the body scrub has my skin glistening
I have to say I love this scrub!!! I have dry skin and live in an area with hard water, so this scrub is great for me. Its exfoliating and moisturizing just enough. I love the clean natural smell as well. If I could give this 10 stars I would.
Leaves you oily
I wanted to love this, but it does nothing for skin and just leaves you feeling oily for days afterwards. Pass on this one.

Extremely moisturizing. Keep in shower & use frequently throughout the weekend. Also travel with it!
Threw It Out
A blogger I follow recommended this scrub so I gave it a try and was very disappointed. The exfoliating granules are extremely large and painful. My skin is bright red after use. It also has a very thick, greasy, impossible to wash off base. Not only can you not get it off your skin, it coats your bathtub/shower. This product needs to be reworked. Also my bottle arrived with a small slit/tear in the top so when you squeeze the tube, it also squirts out the top. I found Follain’s return policy misleading; you can’t return the product but they do give you a credit to use online. Definitely skip this one.
Hi there! Thank you so much for providing such helpful feedback on the Sugar and Shea Scrub. We are currently in the process of addressing the packaging issue and we highly value your input as we continue to make these improvements! Our team will be reaching out to you shortly. Be well, Team Follain
I wanted to love this scrub but the fragrance is incredibly powerful and equally nauseating. It’s next to impossible to get the stench off your skin. I had to shower 3 more times for any relief. Pass

Wanted to love this, but had a terrible reaction to it. Made my skin slimy and it took 3 showers with my scrubbing it off me with a loopha to finally get it off me.

I really like this scrub, smells great.
I saw this product in an article and decided to give it a try after reading a glowing review about how effective it was for KP. Though I live in a dry climate, I struggle with wearing many lotions, which has made my KP worse. This scrub is fantastic! On the first day of using it, my bumps were gone and my skin felt hydrated. I used it also on my very dry knees. I liked the feel of the oil but it didn’t make me feel clammy or sticky like most lotions do. Using this 2-3 times/week is a game changer for me. I’m so glad to have found it!
My favorite scrub!
I’d never been one for body scrubs until I tried Follain’s! I have sensitive skin and isn’t not too abrasive, and leaves my skin feeling smooth and hydrated. Definitely will repurchase!
Could be improved
I like the way it moisturizes however the exfoliation brads seem very large and can be uncomfortable. Additionally, because of their size – it becomes difficult to squeeze out so much so that a hole opened at the top of my bottle making it difficult to use. I suggest packaging in a glass jar to avoid this problem & its a win for the environment.
Great scrub to remove dead skin plus hydrated your skin.
My new favorite product!
I absolutely love exfoliating my pregnant belly with this each night. It exfoliates and hydrates at the same time and leaves my skin feeling so soft and nourished. My new must have!
Works best mixed with a body cleanser.
I love this ingredients and the feel, but it is very thick. I like to mix it with another body gel/cleanser. Also, it leaves a residue, so shaving after is an issue.
Great, Mess-Free Exfoliator
Love this scrub! It has been gentle enough for my sensitive skin, but also super effective and hydrating- no need for a lotion afterwards. The tube makes it very easy to use in the shower, too!
Easier than most scrubs
This scrub is awesome—I was drawn to it because all of the clean scrubs I’ve ever tried before come in a glass jar, which is super tricky in the shower, and I always end up scooping out too much. This one smells heavenly and gets the job done when it comes to getting rid of dryness. When I use it before bed, I wake up with the softest skin.
You really do not need any lotion or oil after using this scrub! It exfoliates like a dream, is so easy to use, and the color is very cool. It also smells good and left my skin feeling SO SOFT.
I am obsessed with this body scrub. I always look for sugar formulas since they are more moisturizing on my skin, and this one delivers. There is such a high amount of oil and shea in the product that it also doubles as a great shave oil (after rinsing off the sugar) and I barely need a body lotion afterwards — it’s that moisturizing. The tub application is so easy for using in the shower and the value for the price is incredible.
I love the convenience of this scrub in a tube. I love the moisturizing effects of it, and the beautiful blue color. I love that there is no heavy scent – just a pure, light whiff of cleanliness. The sugar granules are not enough exfoliation for me, though. It’s almost like there’s not enough sugar, or the granules are too large? I view this as a very, very, very light scrub that adds wonderful moisture to my skin. I sometimes make my own sugar scrub which exfoliates much better, despite not being as practical as this one.
An easy, mess-free exfoliation experience
What happens when you scoop scrub from a jar? If you’re me, you balance it perilously in your palm while attempting to distribute it to your limbs…then end up losing half the product in the process. The tube on this scrub eliminates that whole song and dance—just squeeze it directly onto your body and go to town. Smells like classic Follain (herbal-y, clean) and the natural blue color is fun to look at. Tip: Feel free to skip lotion afterward, since this leaves behind a generous (but not sticky) layer of nourishing oil.
Great Body Exfoliator
I love this scrub! It’s a really pretty blue color and quickly and effectively exfoliates my skin leaving it soft and super hydrated. Also, it’s much less messy than the normal tubs (I don’t end up spilling all of it). I’m using it once or twice a week now but will bump it up to 3-4 times a week as the weather gets warmer and my legs finally see the light of day!
A Self-tanner's DREAM
This is hands down the best & easiest scrub I have ever used. As a frequent self-tanner, exfoliation is key. So many scrubs get all over the shower, but this one gets the job done while smelling amazing AND not making a mess. This scrub is the perfect step before self-tanning because it doesn’t strip your skin but still is able to deeply exfoliate. This will definitely be a frequent repurchase.
Super moisturizing and finally no glass in the shower!
This scrub is a really effective formula that lightly exfoliates (good for my sensitive skin) but goes the distance in terms of moisturizing. You can actually skip lotion or oil after using this scrub because the shea butter does the work. I also love that this scrub is in a tube so that I don’t worry about dropping a glass jar in the bathtub!
