what brand of sand to keep slugs away

slugs are my biggest problem. I have been reading and I learned that coarse sand is one of the most effective solution. I went to a hardware store but there's many types and brands of sand. I didn't know what to get that will be effective to keep slugs away. can you recommend a specific brand that I should get? pls help..

Sharp sand, which is relatively coarse, or diatomaceous earth can help deter slugs.
