Although it is packaged in a pretty box, my first impression of the tube packaging was that it looked and felt cheap. It's made of that very malleable plastic which I don't generally find to be particularly luxurious and the paper label disintegrated on contact with water. Having said that, I did appreciate the functionality of the tube presentation.
The product itself has a creamy formula, with a texture similar to body lotion. However, I didn't feel that it lived up to DHC's claims regarding hydrating and nourishing benefits in spite of the inclusion of olive oil and vitamin E. There is a high concentration of gently abrasive particles (from natural corn cob powder) and this makes for an effective scrub, which I enjoyed. It has a delicate lavender scent which isn't offensive.
DHC Olive Corn Body Scrub & Polish creates a rich lather and whilst some may find this luxurious, I found that it dried out my skin- this was my main problem with the scrub.
At £14 for 200g, I wouldn't repurchase this. I found it to be something of a "meh" product and I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as my (more affordable) Soap & Glory body scrubs.
