Raw Sugar Bath and Body products in bathroom

Today, we’re dishing about one of our team’s favorite beauty brands.

Have you ever discovered a product that you absolutely loved and couldn’t wait to share with your friends? Then you learn that they’re already using the same product and loving it too? 🙋‍♀️

This very thing happened recently here at Hip2Save, when we discovered our team’s shared love of Raw Sugar’s bath and body products. We also found that we’ve all been gravitating toward the line’s heavenly Lemon Sugar scent, which is hands down our collective team fave.

In addition to making us smell oh-so-good, we love that Raw Sugar’s products are all made fresh in the USA with cold-pressed, organic, plant-based ingredients. Everything is clean, eco-friendly, cruelty-free, and vegan. For every product sold, Raw Sugar also donates one bar of soap to a family in need – up to 5 million bars yearly! 🙌

And no, this is not sponsored post. Just our team’s honest product recommendations on a brand we’re lovin’!

Raw Sugar’s line of personal care products can be found at retailers like Target, Walgreens, Meijer, and select other grocery stores too, making them both easily accessible and affordable. What’s not to love?! Well, there is one product we can’t recommend (keep on reading).

Here are five of our favorite Raw Sugar products and one you can skip.

Raw Sugar Simply Body Wash – $6.99

Raw Sugar’s Simply body wash provides your skin with an invigorating lather of cold-pressed nutrition. Rare blends of organic aloe vera, meadowfoam, olive, comfrey, and jojoba seed oils leave you feeling clean and smelling great. This body wash is also sold in a larger, 40-oz. pump bottle for $9.99.

“This body wash is 😍 and the Lemon Sugar aroma is SO fresh. It’s really invigorating and it doesn’t have any artificial scent to it at all.” – Hip team member Emily

Raw Sugar Sensitive Skin Loving Ultra Nourishing Lotion – $9.99

Raw Sugar’s lotion is like a comforting hug for sensitive skin that could use a little soothing. It’s a nutrient-packed blend of cold-pressed oils, youth-enhancing hyaluronic acid, sweet almond oil, shea butter, and aloe vera made to soothe parched skin and calm inflammation.

“I’m a lotion addict and always have a few bottles at home, in my bag, and in my car. This body lotion is one of my favorites. It’s rare to find a lotion that smells great and also doesn’t make my skin feel dry again after 10 minutes, but this stuff works for me!” – Hip team member Eden


Raw Sugar Simply Hand Wash – $4.99

Raw Sugar’s hand washes cleanse, moisturize, and leave skin clean, moisturized, and feeling refreshed. Say goodbye to dry hands and enjoy the healthy benefits of plant-based skin nutrition every time you wash!

“I love the Raw Sugar hand soap!! It leaves my hands feeling clean and hydrated, and it never dries out my skin, no matter how many times I wash my hands. The scents are absolutely amazing, too!” – Hip team member Amber

Raw Sugar Sugar Scrub – $12.99

Buff your dry skin to soft, glowing perfection with Raw Sugar’s Sugar Scrubs. These scrubs feature a mix of natural sugar and organic ingredients to help you scrub away rough skin and reveal a radiant glow.

I love the Raw Sugar body butter and the Sugar Scrub in the Lemon Sugar scent. They smell SO good! They work great for exfoliating and softening my skin, but it’s really the smell that attracts me! – Hip team member Jen


hand holding Raw Sugar lip balm

Raw Sugar Organic Lip Balm + Lip Scrub – $4.99

Raw Sugar’s Lip Balm is a blend of organic ingredients made to lock in moisture and naturally protect lips from UV damage. This 100% natural lip protectant is made with virgin coconut, aloe, and plant-based essential oils to help brighten and restore dry, chapped lips.

I love Raw Sugar’s organic lip balm in Lemon Sugar. It leaves your lips feeling naturally soft, and the scent is an instant mood-booster! – Hip team member Kristi

Stay away from Raw Sugar’s hand sanitizer, though. 👎

As much as we love this brand’s amazing fragrances, they just don’t seem to work in the form of hand sanitizer. Unfortunately, Raw Sugar’s heavenly aromas get lost under the smell of alcohol and come out smelling like a cheap tequila hangover. Don’t ask us how we know that – just trust that this is not a pleasant smell!

Raw Sugar 9-oz Coconut + Lemon Verbena Hand Sanitizer for only $4.99

These hand sanitizers do contain 62% alcohol as recommended by the CDC and they certainly smell like they would kill germs, so they’re probably effective if you can get past the smell.

If you do decide to try this sanitizer for yourself, you may want to take a whiff first. Don’t apply it to your hands and then decide that you can’t live with the scent – it’s powerful and it will linger through multiple hand washings!

    LOVE Raw Sugar body wash! My fav is the vanilla bean and sugar! Haven’t tried the lotions yet but I will soon 😊 Also love that they donate one soap for every one you buy 👍🏼

    • Jessica

      Is it grainy like a scrub? Or smooth like regular body wash?

      • Rachel

        It’s super smooth and clear. Looks like regular clear body soap but it’s awesome 😊

  2. Cblayloc

    that’s funny, my daughter and I love the hand sanitizer. We read that it has bad reviews but we don’t mind the scent at all and actually prefer it to all others so far.

    • jessica-14

      Same, mine doesn’t smell like that. It’s the best smelling hand sanitizer I own…. both bottles I have smell nice.

  3. eaweaver79

    Watermelon Mint smells like bubbalicious gum…my favorite!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Ooh! Awesome! Thanks for commenting! Glad to hear you have been loving that one!

    • Tiff0820

      We love watermelon mint in our house too!!

    • mccom13

      i’m obsessed with the watermelon mint body wash–it smells AMAZING!! 🙂

  4. Jessica

    Love Raw Sugar hand soap and the body wash. Not a fan of the hand sanitizer.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the feedback, Jessica! Good to know what you have liked best!

  5. Rebekah

    I agree on the hand sanitizer! I am not picky about smells at all and the smell of the hand sanitizer I bought from literally makes me nauseous. It smells good for a split second and then the horrible after smell hits! It is SO bad.

  6. Blond21nyr

    I wish they still sold the soap refill bags. Love their products!!

  7. MLS

    I bought their hand sanitizer a few months ago because it was the last bottle in the whole hand sanitizer section, and it had been very hard to find any. I actually like the scent! My grandma, sister, and kids recently used it and all commented on the pleasant smell. It’s the coconut and lemon verbena one. Not sure if they have other kinds, but I’d like to try more of their products after reading this. My kids use their bath fizzers and love them, too!

  8. RachelD

    I agree and didn’t like the hand sanitizer at all, it almost felt grainy to me. I’d also say the foaming hand wash is not my favorite, but I love their other products.

  9. Kristine

    Thanks for this post! I had wondered how their other products were after I tried their hand sanitizer first😂. I was at Grocery Outlet a few months ago and way up on a top shelf they had a few bottles (this was when you couldn’t find any hand sanitizer anywhere). I really like the coconut verbena scent, but agree it is a little strong, but no stronger than Bath and Body Works. I’m definitely going to try the lotion!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome, Kristine! Hope you enjoy the lotion!

  10. TRoman8816

    Love the men’s line too!!! The mango one is great!! We have the hand soap, lotion, bar soap, body scrub and the body washes!!

  11. Mary

    I bought the big bottle of hand sanitizer in the coconut scent and the smell is not bad, but it is thicker than normal hand sanitizer and beads up when you put it on your hands. I saw smaller bottles at Target the other day that were clear and more liquid than the one I bought previously and the smell was horrible on all of them.
    I bought my sons the gift sets at Christmas and they liked all of the men’s products. I like the hair masque, body wash,lotion,bar soap and soap.

  12. Casey

    I LOVE the coconut, lime, verbana foaming hand wash. Decided to try it on a whim and fell in love.

  13. Jennifer

    I’m a huge fan of this brand, too! I didn’t care for the lemon sugar scent as much but I am in love with the green tea + cucumber + aloe vera scent. I love the body lotion and the whipped sugar scrub. I also use the deep conditioning hair mask and it leaves my hair so silky. I’m looking forward to trying the shampoo and regular conditioner next. What experiences did your team have with the shampoo/conditioner?

  14. Danielle Briggs

    Thanks for the post! I have recently decided to change all my products to cruelty free brands and need to change from Oil of Olay body wash… since I like Raw Sugar hand wash, I will try the body wash next!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      GREAT! Hope you love it, Danielle! You’re most welcome!

  15. Sarah Davis

    I just recently fell in love with this brand too!!!! The watermelon body wash & hand soap!!! 🥰 I love their shampoo too but the conditioner makes my hair impossible to brush!! All the products smell amazing!!!

  16. nickyB

    I’ve been using their lemon body wash for a couple of years now and it’s still my favorite. At Christmas last year I bought myself a raw sugar gift set to try other scents and wasn’t impressed. They just aren’t strong enough.

  17. Nicole F

    Love Raw Sugar. The Peppermint and Sea Salt Hans sanitizer doesn’t smell awful.

  18. Hblog

    I really like this brand also. The hand wash, lotion, and scrub are all excellent.

  19. akajulz

    Pineapple + Maqui Berry + Coconut and Raw Coconut + Mango smell the best to me by far! I have used the body wash and sugar scrub. I love sugar scrubs because they melt, unlike the other scrubs that make a residue mess in the shower.

  20. Jeff

    I have been using Loma hair care products for years and like them a lot – but I see Raw Sugar products are substantially cheaper. I know both company’s products are Vegan and Animal Cruelty Free – and Loma is “Made In The USA” while Raw Sugar is “Created In The The USA” – I am curious as to what the differences in the brands are ? Is there a web site that provides this comparative analysis ?
