This is Trader Joe’s and it costs below 6 dollars.

The ingredients for

Fresh:

Sucrose, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Simmondsia Chinenesis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Passiflora Incarnata Seed Oil, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Citrus Medica Vulgaris Peel Oil, Litsea Cubeba Fruit Oil, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Oil, Limonene, Citral, Linalool, Citronellol, Geraniol. (from Sephora.com)

Trader Joe’s:

Sea salt, sweet almond oil, sunflower oil, soybean oil, apricot kernel oil, blend of natural and essential oils, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), ascorbic acid (vitamin c)

They even smell the same too!! As you can see…VERY similar (if not the same ingredients). And i’m glad I only have Trader Joe’s. I tried Fresh last week and I thought “hey this smell like the Trader Joe’s Scrub. Anyways I love the way it smells–it’s so summery and it’s a great pick me up for a long day. I’d like to buy this product again.
