No, it does not smell like gingerbread..... I personally love it. It's more of a citrusy ginger scent.

Yes,redolent of a Oven with Baking Gingerbread inside and never will be disappointed! If You "scrub" after Cleansing and follow with a light wash of the Gingerbread Man 3 in 1 or Gingerbread Girl Shower Cleanser/Tub Cleanser~will be So Happy! A Lovely non~overpowering Scent.My Favourite next to Amazing Grace!

If you have the lip gloss, and you do not think it smells much like gingerbread, then the scrub will not smell like gingerbread to you. Philosophy is excellent at keeping its scents consistent across the product lines. Personally, I like the scent, but I agree that it smells more like cinnamon than gingerbread.

HELLO, I SHOWERED WITH THE 3-IN-1 LAST NIGHT AND TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, THIS DOES NOT SMELL LIKE GINGERBREAD. THIS SMELLS REALLY CLEAN, HAS A LIGHT LEMON AND GINGER SCENT, LIKE GINGERALE. THIS SHOULD OF BEEN NAMED THE GINGERALE MAN SCRUB AND SHAMPOO! :o) I LOVE IT THOUGH SINCE I'M NOT INTO THE HEAVY, SWEET, FOOD SCENTS AND THIS IS PERFECT FOR SUMMER. I'M GOING TO BUY ONE, FOR THE PRICE ON THIS LARGE JAR, YOU CAN'T GO WRONG. (I JUST WISH THIS HAD A SCOOP). IF YOU BUY THIS AND DO NOT LIKE IT, JUST RETURN FOR A REFUND OR EXCHANGE.

It smells a bit like gingerbread, but not as much as some other "holiday scented" products I've seen. Also, the scent does not last, which I don't mind.

It does feel slightly warm after rubbing it on your skin. Not sure if it's just because of the friction, but kinda neat anyway.

I would say it warms up a bit.....not really hot. More of a warmness from friction, if that makes any sense.

you can feel a certain warmth on your skin but it is not a 'hot salt' body scrub as they would suggest.

Question
Storage for freshness
I want to buy two, one to use now and put the other away for later use. How long will this retain the freshness if it's stored in a dark place? I would hate to buy it and remove this later to find it's not usable. Thanks for any answers before I order.

I would think that it would stay fresh for a while if unopened. There's no oil in this like some scrubs have, so nothing to "go bad". Try it!

The salt scrubs retain freshness for many years. I still have a jar of the Mint scent that Philosophy discontinued a couple years ago. I only use it during the summer because it is really refreshing after coming home from a particularly long workout or from working in the garden. I have used it for 3 summers now, and it is still as fresh as the day I bought it. The scent has not deteriorated, and the salt and oil still mix well.

As long as Not Used on Face,Will Adore. I like to "wet" my Skin and Swirl in Large Circles and does Not require Much. Great on Elbows,Heels of Feet,Knees and Shoulders. Best to rinse in Shower/Tub and use a "Neutral" Scent of Body moisturiser Afterwards.Philosophy has a terric MicroDelivery Wash for Face for Every Day Use,Try~both are below $30.

Try this scrub! Use it on your body while your skin is dry. After showering rub Neutrogena's body oil all over. I promise you that you won't believe how good your skin will feel!

I have painfully dry skin. This is how I survive winter...

This may be a Sample of Grace Wash along with Gingerbread Man Hot Salt scrub.I do not Believe they would have a complimentary scent.I Use Amazing Grace fragrance and there is a Salt scrub in that Fragrance. Enjoy them seperately. Any "Grace" Family Scents Are Complimentary to~ gether.

It depends where this ad was from. If it was a sephora promotion, then there will be a promo code to put in the promotional code box if you are ordering online. If not, then the ad may be false or interpretted wrong. This product does qualify for a free clutch that includes 8 samples. If you type in clutch4you in the promo box you will definitely receive it with your scrub.
P.S. This scrub is fantastic!
