This product is too abrasive to use on the face. The exfoliating particles are just too big and sharp.
It is too expensive for the size of the tub you get.
This did nothing for my oily, acne prone skin....
Dired it out and broke me out.
I use this product 3x a week and my skin has never been better! I have a weird spot on my nose that gets flakey and dry where I used to have it pierced , and makeup always cakes there. Since starting to use this, I have less of my hormonal acne along my chin line and that dry spot is not only lessened...it has disappeared!
The scent of the cleanser is lemon but not at all overpowering. It is a great way to wake yourself up, and the lemon is not only invigorating but it is so clean smelling as well. I got this as a sample in my Birchbox for June and...another plus...although the sample looks like it may not last that long, I quickly realized that since this product foams, the sample would last forever. I am not even a quarter way through! I cant imagine how long a full size cleanser lasts! ...one more plus, if you get it in your mouth it tastes like sugar! hahahaha
I got the full size 4 oz cleanser in the Hautelook Spring Beauty Bag. This cleanser was one of the main reasons I purchased the beauty bag. I heard of the brand before & had a professional facial with the products and liked what they did in 1 session. I couldn't recall if the facial included this exfoliating cleanser or not. I new that the brand was vegan & "should" be safe to use.
I've been using, more like trying, for almost 2 months (since 5.18.13 to be exact). The recommended application is 1x daily or 2-3 times a week depending on skin's sensitivity. I decided to use 2 times a week, because of my sensitive skin. During my initial use of this product I was having a bad eczema flare up. I swear after I washing my face the 1st time, my skin looked worse (my skin was flakier than before & felt tight). This brand was created because the owner/creator has eczema, so why so harsh? I gave it a couple more tries, still 2 times a week max, and it was still making my skin flakier & look/feel tight. I couldn't take using it again so I ran out to my local organic store & purchased their moisture rich cleansing lotion (which was very soothing & can use daily without issue).
I had ordered their Complete Care for Calm Skin kit with the 10% code that was include w/ this product. I was following all of their instructions & just could not get this product to work for me. I contacted them on FB & told them what was happening. They couldn't understand my issues or give me better recommendations. Even their moisturizers were not cutting it. They are way to thin and do not provide enough barrier.
I went on Youtube to check reviews or find someone w / similar issues. I finally found someone w/ sensitive skin. She used more water to break down the sugar granules so that it's not as harsh (this makes it less foamy). I now do this, but only Once a Week max, otherwise I have a flaky mess on my face. I had to find a better moisturizer too in order to combat the flaky skin.
Out of everything I purchased from Suki, I only liked the balancing toner and loved the moisture rich cleansing lotion (both of these I use 2 x daily). I would not purchase again & would not recommend to someone with eczema or sensitive skin.
FYI - I have been able to use this product on elbows and feet without issue.
This product gave me a crazy type of breakout, clusters of tiny whiteheads the morning after using. It also made my skin red. I only used it very gently and ive used regular sugar on my face before so I don't think it was the grains, I felt like it left a film so maybe it was the culprit. Unfortunately I was sent another deluxe sample of this so i put it up for swap.
I can't be without this product! I use it 1-2x a week with a soft facial buffer and it is my favorite part of my skin care regime. It smells delicious and cleanses wonderfully leaving my skin bright and supple.
If used on tender/sensitive skin, I'd recommend smoothing the grains out until it's white and creamy before applying to the face. Since I don't use this daily, I love utilizing the grainy texture as an exfoliant. It lathers down quickly after a couple or so passes, then turns into a silky cleanser. It's just brilliant!
Got this off Amazon after seeing at half price relative to Bath&Unwind!
After reading many reviews, I've derived that this label is focused on using highly concentrated botanical extracts to achieve what it wants.
Follow the directions on the bottle and achieve skincare nirvana. The other reviewers are correct - a little goes a long way. Take a small amount and rub between your palms so you get a bubbly effect, and scrub your face with it.
I tried it, and my face feels squeaky clean and dewy after, but not dried out. I love this product!
I'm in Singapore - if you are too, then you'll notice that the TANGS e-store sells it for SGD60 as well :) You may wish to opt for this if you have nothing else to buy online. Else, I highly recommend that you ship it in from Amazon, together with your other U.S. shopping!
Finally picked this up on Amazon as I have been meaning to try it. Smells incredible and turns to a creamy foamy scrub if rubbed in the hands with water before applying. Left my dry skin dewy and soft. I would probably use this every other day to exfoliate and cleanse, and follow with moisturizer. Expensive (about $33 for 4 oz.) but a little goes a long way. Packaged in a glass jar which is not the best. Overall a good product and I would re-purchase.
I love this scrub and it's definitely one of my HG's. I am 40, have sensitive olive skin with oily T, normal cheeks and starting to get dry around eyes. I suffer monthly break outs around chin and the occasional spot in other areas. However, this makes my skin glow like nothing else. I don't understand how people are saying it's harsh. You have a choice of either putting the scrub straight on your skin so it's a super strong exfoliator, or mix it with water until it's soft, foaming + has smoothed down a little, either way it does a fantastic job and doesn't leave my skin in any way red or irritated. Smells lemon fresh, is a great morning boost. I can use it every day and my skin is happy. Yes it's expensive but for me it's worth it as it gives me a glow & doesn't make me break out or oily or dry and lasts for months. As everyone says, packaging is a bit of a pain as it's a glass jar with screw-off lid. now and then i've dropped a lump in the shower and always say 'oops, that's ú5 worth down the drain'! but it's a sturdy glass jar so won't break. I have been using this for over a year and will continue to use it, absolutely no reason to swap for a different product. every now and then it's on sale on brandalley so i buy it in bulk! Tip, don't treat this as a make-up remover or facewash, I remove make-up first with olive oil or suki face-wash or other product, I use this solely as a scrub as it's intended. Those expecting to use it as a make-up remover, it's prob not the best idea. Love it :)
This cleanser is amazing! I have pretty good skin, but it does get oily with blackheads, and this really helps clear them away. It smells very refreshing and citrusy and gently exfoliates so my skin is left super smooth. It's not exactly cheap...I got a 4oz jar from ebeauty.ca for $33...but it works so it's great value!
