I use it mixed with olive oil all the time. Its my favorite home recipe. I cant tell you if its tooharsh or not...but I know it works!

I use baby oil and sugar all the time on my arms and legs. I slather up with the oil then sprinkle sugar and scrub. You can kind of control how "scrubby" you get by how much sugar you sprinkle on. It makes my skin silky smooth.

I don't know about alone, but I know it can be mixed w/ olive oil as a scrub/exfoliant.

Ooh, once I run out of my store-bought scrub, I'm so trying sugar with babyoil! I hate babyoil as a moisturizer, because it never soaks into my skin, just sits there and wipes off on my clothes. Now I'll have a use for it!
