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.
