Me & The Girls Sugar Body Scrub- reviewed and recommended


Makes skin feel silky soft


May be too harsh of a scrub for sensitive skin

A great multi-tasking scrub that also hydrates

Limonum Sugar Body Scrub ($32/8oz) by Me & The Girls is the best body scrub that I have come across. It makes my skin feel so fabulously soft and nourished that I don’t need to use a body lotion afterwards. It almost is a moisturizer, just one that you put on in the shower.

Indeed, while the first ingredient is sugar cane (and that, of course, does the scrubbing part), the rest of the ingredients are all worthy of your favorite moisturizer with coconut, shea and avocado oils. Almost all the ingredients are USDA certified organic.

The real star of the show is cupuacu butter, a fragrant fruit related to coffee (but smelling more like pineapple) and full of antioxidant flavonoids. This is a signature ingredient of Me & The Girls. As a butter, it is very hydrating. As is tamanu oil. Typically, tamanu oil is obtained from the seed of this tropical tree and contains benzoic acids, fatty acids, small amounts of vitamin F and much more.

I am almost addicted to this scrub and wish it came in a 16oz tub. Multitaskers are always welcome in my busy life and in summer, when I know my body lotion is going to melt almost before I am dressed, the fact that Me & The Girls’ Sugar Body Scrub means I can skip it is a very welcome bonus.

The “me” of Me & The Girls is founder Sharon Hickey, a critical care registered nurse. The girls are all women that her company helps by giving 10% of profits to organizations that help and empower women, such as Women For Women International and the White Ribbon Alliance. Way to go, Me & The Girls – you can count me in!

    I would LOVE to try the anti-aging cream. I am 55 years old, unemployed, and a breast cancer survivor. The treatments have taken a toll on my complexion, although I do take very good care of my skin, but this particular cream sounds like the answer to my prayers!

    The Anti-Aging Night Facial Moisturizer sounds like the product I've been searching for and I would love to try it and report back to you on how it reacts on my early 70s aging skin. Thanks, Marta!
