Dirty Works Coconut Scrub

I was in coles the other day and decided to check out the beauty aisle and came across the Dirty Works range. I have seen some bloggers mention and review some products from this brand and I wanted to try them out. I picked up the Dirty Works Coconut Scrub because I thought it smelled better than the main range scrub.

The whole range of Dirty Works products have the most adorable packaging. The main range is blue and the purple range has a coconut scent. The products have a retro-chic feel to it and it reminds me of the packaging of Soap & Glory however they shouldn't be compared based on the packaging. The tube stands on the lid which I like because it means that I won't waste any product because the scrub travels down naturally.

The body scrub is a thick, gel-like consistency that contains chunky pecan shell granules which removes dead skin and almond oil to moisturise. It isn't JAM-PACKED with pecan shell granules but enough to do the job. I find it easier to use scrubs in the shower because I have sensitive skin however if you want a more harsh body scrub experience, use them on dry skin.  As soon as I rinsed my legs, I could feel how soft they were and I couldn't believe that it worked so quickly. When I woke up the next morning, my legs were still soft.

This body scrub has a coconut, tropical scent that does smell artificial but it's something that I can get over but I can understand if it doesn't appeal to everyone. The smell isn't overpowering and doesn't linger around which is good because then I can use a moisturiser that smells good and not worry about the scents mixing.

Overall, I don't think I will repurchase this product because I wasn't a fan of the jelly-like texture as it just so slimy and I know there are better body scrubs out there.

Have you tried any Dirty Works Products?

    1. I really want to try Soap & Glory stuff but it is so expensive in Australia it makes my heart cry!

  3. I use the original body butter and it's delicious! Nice and thick but absorbs well and I really like the scent, it smells 'expensive' i'm interested to try the coconut range though. But I hate artificial smelling coconut!
