The new Maui Mango Surf Body Scrub Bath & Body Works is part of Spring 2015 line of products inspired by Hawaii. The line includes several scents. Each scent is represented by various products, such as Shower Gel, Body Cream, Fragrance Mist, Body Scrub and even Mini Perfume (or rather EDT). I cannot say that Maui Mango Surf was my favorite scent in the entire line, only because it is dominated by sweet fruity notes, such as mango and pineapple. I like sweet fruity fragrances and think they are perfect for Summer, especially in a form of body care items, rather than perfumes. If I had to pick a favorite between five Hawaiian scents, I would choose Waikiki Beach Coconut and Oahu Coconut Sunset with very pronounced salt ocean air and coconut notes. Nonetheless, Maui Mango Surf has a pleasant scent that is reminiscent of tropical fruit and flowers. I mostly loved this scrub for its great texture, which looks like beach sand sparkling in the sun. The smooth gel-like scrub with crushed coconut exfoliating particles ensures very gentle, yet thorough polishing of the skin.

Similar to other products from the same Maui Mango Surf line, the the body scrub is perfect for using in Summer time or if you want to take it with you on a tropical vacation. For that reason, I also wish, they offered this product in a travel size version, similar to Body Lotion, Shower Gel and Fragrance Mist. When you spend all days in a swimsuit, proper exfoliation becomes becomes important more than ever. Other than that, I am very happy with this scrub, enjoy using it and can highly recommend it to anyone who likes exotic fruity fragrances and light summer scents.
