I'm not a big fan of this one. I love the IDEA of it, but jojoba beads for exfoliating? That just doesn't make any sense. They are round, big, and waxy. I want a bit more scrub in my physical exfoliants. The product is black from the charcoal and looks a hot mess when used. I keep fearing that it's going to stain my sponges and towels when I remove it. Thankfully it does not seem to. I received this in a subscription box, but I found myself losing interest in even using it up real quick. I'd much prefer to use ExfoliKate or something else.
While I don't think this is an incredibly effective scrub (the beads are big and kind of waxy), I think it's an effective everyday cleanser. It cleanses well and is still moisturizing, plus I really like the smell.
I got this as a sample in my Ipsy bag. The first time I used it, I enjoyed it. The product did a nice job of rinsing away all the oil, etc. on my face. The second time I used it, I tried to use it while I still had makeup on. My face felt greasy and unclean afterwards and I had to wash it again. Also, for something that is supposed to be exfoliating, I do not feel or see any exfoliating going on. I had a lot more success with the Derma E Exfoliating Scrub. I am not going to purchase the full-sized product.
I must say I am not a fan of Michael Todd products in general, but this one might make me want to try some more. It is a great exfoliator, gentle yet effective. My skin felt great during and after use
My Skin type: Dry, flakey acne prone skin
I love this mask! I used up a 1 fl oz bottle of this product I received in my ipsy bag. I used this in the shower mostly in the mornings after my morning workout. It has exfoliating scrubbies in it but it is not as rough as some other ones which made it with daily use excellent! I didn't find it did any miracles but it did not break me out and my face felt extremely moisturized after wards. So, it did not dry me out. It does remove a majority of my MU if I happened to use it at night with the exception of my eyes which you shouldn't be using it on your eyes anyways. My skin stayed clear while using this. It does contain oils and is very moisturizing so I would not recommend for the summer or if you have extremely oily skin. However, if you have acne prone normal/combo to dry skin I would suggest this if you have the excess money to splurge.
Love this! It's a very gentle exfoliator and my skin actually feels moisturized after using. I only use it about once a week since I do have very sensitive skin. But it is so glorious! The exfoliating beads feel like soft pearls being rubbed into your skin and the charcoal pulls all the impurities and dirt out of your pores, you can feel it working! The jojoba gives it moisture so your skin doesn't feel tight at all after using. My skin glows and redness is decreased. I have extremely dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin and this product is fabulous for me! Treat yourself to a divine mini facial once or twice a week with this and you won't be sorry! Always looking forward to using this and will certainly repurchase once it runs out.
I got this in my August ipsy bag, and I am in love. Normally I am not into scrubs, as I chemically exfoliate, but I will definitely purchase a full size of this product. I already use jojoba oil as my nightly moisturizer, and in a scrub it's even better. The scrub is very moisturizing and leaves your skin so soft and smooth. Best of all, it's gentle enough for daily use.
I have acne prone skin, but also a little bit of dry skin, and every scrub I've used does its job but leaves me so dry. This one however leaves your skin feeling moisturized and soft. The little beads are'nt too rough and your skin just feels so amazing afterwards.
This stuff is so wonderful for my acne prone skin. Its like nothing else! Its black! lol
This feels so gentle but scrubs EVERYTHING away! It's the best scrub I've ever used.
