This scrub has little to no grain to it at all, and the carrier substance the scrub is in isn't a lotion, or a body wash - it seems to serve no purpose at all. However, the smell is DIVINE. It's a perfect vanilla milkshake smell. It doesn't linger, unfortunately, but it's wonderful while you're scrubbing. Although I wouldn't buy this scrub again, as I need my scrub to be scrubby, I would buy other things in this line if they smelled this good.
