I had heard and read about the scrub on some blogs before I got it for myself. The opinions seems to differ but I really liked it.
This is more or less a Weleda Creamy Body Wash with wax pearls. It's thick and creamy with big wax pearls that give a very gentle scrub, there isn't to much "scratch" just enough. It's also have a completly heavenly scent in my opinion.
It's recommended to use once a week but I usually do it 1-3 times a week depending on my mood. It's just so gentle that I think you could use it on your face without to much trouble. It's a product that I always seem to come back to, I use up a tube try something new for a while and then back to this again.
Scrub Effect: Very gentle, not to much scratch.
Feeling and scent: Very creamy and the the scent is very much birch.
Packaging: Green plastic tube. Good plastic cap that doesn't break immediately when you drop it in the shower.
Price: 115-149 Swedish crowns (depending on where you buy it)
Buy Again: Yes!
Best: The scent and creaminess..
Worst: It doesn't exist as Birch Creamy Body Wash :)

I like this very much. It doesn't feel like a strong scrub while you use it but it does work! Leaves your skin so soft that I often don't put any moisturiser on. Will buy again.
The product smells fresh as if you are standing in woods. It did not over scrub my skin. I tried on my face too, but did not recommend to do so. It works well on my body.
It didn't feel like it was harming my skin while I was using it, but it really did irritate my skin, not those tiny little barely there beads, but something in the ingredient list. To be fair and honest, I was in the period of over-exfoliating my skin while I tried this one, so my skin could have already been damaged before I even reached for this, but still, bad experience.
I do like the smell, but that's about it.
I really wanted to like this product, but it just didn't do much for me. The consistency is very runny...a no no for a scrub...and there isn't that many exfoliating beads at all. Its almost like a moisturizing milk. I didn't feel that it did much for my skin at all. The smell is absolutely divine though, very gentle and citrusy. If you have very sensitive skin I would recommend this.
Got a small sample of this and I'm glad I didn't buy it. I hate the smell, it's too strong and not very nice. That makes it hard to use it so I don't really know if it's a good scrub or not.
I purchased this scrub to tackle the rough dry spots on by arms, elbows and legs during the dry cold winter. It comes in a tube, which is so much more convenient than tub packaged scrubs. It has a runny/creamy consistency, with a fairly low concentration of wax beads to exfoliate. It does have a divine citrus scent which works for both men & women. Overall, it left my skin somewhat smooth, but didn't do a thing for my dry patches. If you were looking for a super gentle scrub, you may like this. It doesn't contain any parabens or harmful chemicals.
