For a while, I couldn't even open TikTok without a particular skincare product coming across my For You Page at least once. Creators have amassed millions of views showing off the satisfying lather and exfoliating power of the popular Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrubs, and #TreeHut has over 300 million videos to date. And now that it's winter, my skin has become extra dry and flaky — but at least I know which exfoliant to reach for.

Tree Hut has a wealth of scrubs to choose from, from watermelon to margarita to cotton candy, but I'm particularly intrigued by the Tree Hut Vitamin C Shea Sugar Scrub, which an Ulta customer says "​makes your skin super duper soft and smells good enough to eat (but DON'T)." Infused with shea butter and alpha-hydroxy acid, this powerful exfoliant helps remove dead skin cells, while natural oils like grapefruit, sweet almond, and orange replenish hydration.

The namesake vitamin C in this sugar scrub helps skin give off a brighter, more radiant appearance — and because this season's harsh weather can dull skin, this version of the Tree Hut scrub is an obvious pick for winter.

Shoppers at Ulta rave about the way it makes their skin feel — the fresh, fruity scent is just a bonus in comparison. "The smell is amazing but the real magic is in the scrub," one wrote in a review. "It's thick enough to actually exfoliate and remove dead skin without being too abrasive. You get such a generous amount and even with use multiple times a week it still lasts forever."

Another added that it helped clear their skin without stripping it of moisture. "The AHA really has helped my chest acne to clear up. I ran out of it and my chest started getting small breakouts again," they said. "Love that it's non drying and it's the perfect amount of exfoliation."

If your winter skin is calling for a little extra attention, definitely pick up the Tree Hut Vitamin C Sugar Scrub from Ulta.
