Julep Pomegranate Body Scrub Review

Julep Pomegranate Body Scrub Review

I love body scrubs and have recently been using Julep Pomegranate Body Scrub which came with my Julep Mavenbox in January. I purposefully chose the Julep Maven Bombshell box in lieu of my It Girl box because I wanted to try this body scrub…and the polish colors suited me better.

Julep Pomegranate Body Scrub comes in a 4oz plastic tub jar. The cutely decorative label provides directions of use and notice of it being a paraben-free product. On the bottom of the jar you’ll find a list of ingredients. The one thing I really see missing is contact information. Regardless of how simple instructions are or the probability of mishaps being low, I prefer products with contact information listed. It just gives me a sense that the brand stands behinds their product and welcomes customer contact should something go awry or questions come about.

Upon first opening the jar, there was a foil seal. I love when products have an inner seal, I’m more likely to purchase! I somehow feel more comforted in the thought that it hasn’t been tampered with and the product seems fresher being that the ingredients were sealed & protected. The downfall to inner seals though, is that they can often be hard to remove. That was the case with Julep Pomegranate Body Scrub. I had difficulty removing the foil seal, even after puncturing it with a butter knife.

I like the smell of Julep Pomegranate Body Scrub as it is not over-powering. The grainy texture reminds me of grits by looking at it. I do find that it is not as easy to apply as most body scrubs I’ve tried. I had to use quite a bit to work it on and get the coverage I am used to. Once the scrub beads start to dissolve a bit it becomes more manageable and has a good amount of slip to it. It has shea butter in it so that helps add to the smoothness felt after rinsing. While I find other scrubs easier to manage I did love the outcome being that it left my skin smooth and hydrated like I prefer it to be. I do however wish it came in larger sizes as I feel that I use more of this in one use than I would with my other body scrubs.

Compared to other favorites of mine, Julep Pomegranate Body Scrub would only last me half the time but costs twice as much ($18). I’ve used it 3 times so far and I’d say I have 2 more uses left before it is empty. But I really like it so for me, due to the size and cost I’d use it as an exfoliating product maybe once a week or so and use a less costly product for more frequent use.

Have you tried Julep Pomegranate Body Scrub? Let me know what you think of it. If not, what is your favorite body scrub?

    This sounds so decadent. I'm on a pomegranate kick at the moment too, so I'd love to try this

      @GhadaVanderpool This brought back my love of pomegranate! I really like it, I just hope they offer larger sizes in the future. I like bulk items lol

    I love this scrub but I don't like how greasy it leaves your skin

    Adore body scrubs! I actually use St Ives Apricot blemish control facial scrub as something that smooths my knees, elbows, and my arms. It sounds silly but it's too harsh to use on my face more than 2/3 times a week but on my chest and body it's absolutely perfect. But I must say the pomegranate one your using above seems 10 times as luxurious!
