The minute I opened the sample I got of this I knew it would be too intense for my extremely sensitive face so I did what I often do with such samples- I tried it on the backs of my aging hands. The result was AMAZING ! My hands looked a lot younger, smelled great and were silky soft. Oh, how I wish I could use this on my face!
I currently use Vivite on my face and hands and this was superior on my hands .
I gave a 3 rating on packaging and price just because I don't know due to using a sample.
I will buy this just for my hands and perhaps use it on neck, chest , elbows and feet as well.
WOW. okay, my skin was pretty bad. i had acne, it was mild i guess, but it just would NOT go away. my skin is pretty sensitive so it would get dried out from benzoyl peroxide. i have tried to control my acne, switched products if i thought they were breaking me out, etc. i even stopped using my new beautiful chanel foundation because i felt it was breaking me out. i discovered this scrub at sephora, not even looking for a facial scrub. i am very fair skinned and recently realized my elbows and knees have turned considerably brown. i went to sephora looking for a way to lighten my poor elbows, and was directed to this scrub. i figured i would try it on my face after reading reviews on mua, not expecting much though. i was shocked...my skin right away cleared up, looked smoother and more radiant, it honestly looked better than it had in months. i have NO acne now, no dry patches, nothing. i can wear my foundation so much lighter now, which is awesome considering it's summer. i saw some family today and was complimented on my beautiful skin which was so great because there was nothing beautiful about my skin a few weeks ago. TRY THIS i promise you will love it. unfortunately it has done nothing for my elbows, but it's worth it. it's expensive for a skin care product, but you can get it on ebay for a less expensive price than you would in a place like sephora. i've already repurchased twice
I love this product! I'm so happy it was recommended to me. I saw some reviews of it on youtube and one day went into Sephora to try a new cleanser. I wanted one with glycolic acid to get rid of previous acne scars. The SA recommended this one to me. I'm 27 and even though it says anti aging, the sales associate assured me that she uses it and is good for problem skin in genral. I've been using for about a month now in the evenings, once a day with my normal skincare routine and this stuff is amazing. It has made such a difference in my skin. The texture is smoother, any problems areas go away quickly, its brighter, more glowy, and the spots are slowly lightening up. Overall my skin is alot clearer and I dont have to wear as much makeup to cover anything anymore. Would definately repurchase and reccommend. Can be a little drying, but if you use toner and moisturizer after it's fine. The beads are also very gentle on the skin, so theres no irritation.
I only use this for my face. Though it is a bit expensive for a body wash, when used as a face wash it is actually quite economical; I have made the tiniest of dents in it after a month and a half.
I'm not concerned with aging at this point in my life, but I've found this combination of glycolic acids + gentle exfoliation keeps my skin clear. I'm pleased with how clean my face feels and looks. And it is getting progressively (if slowly) better as time goes on.
This product is excellent! It does everything it is suppose to do. The exfoliation is gentle but effective. I am using this product faithfully because it has made a difference. Got this at www.bestbeautyproductstoday.com for $36.
This is a gentle scrub - so if extreme exfoliation is what you need - you may want to look elsewhere. However, there are chemical exfoliators in this product as well so it is definitely a good product for sensitive skin and facial areas. This really brightens and exfoliates nicely. Bit of a large price tag (i think 38 $) but you do get such a large quantity and really only need very little. This should last you 2 months morning and night.
I got this in the anti aging kit for $56. I really don't like the way this squirts out -- too much came out of the little shampoo bottle container. I thought this did a good job of cleansing. Not sure about the exfoliation as the jojoba beads are not super fine. My skin does feel great after cleansing with this. It feels a little smoother, and this doesn't feel overly drying. I'd say give it a try. It isn't too expensive, and I think this would be a great light exfoliation for the body.
I've been using this for a year or two now. Absolutely swear by it. The results speak for themself. Though I breakout still from hormonal changes, this exfoliant is the best one I've used. I never have dry or tight skin afterwards. There's no scratching, and due to the glycolic acid in it, I get the physical and chemical exfoliation in one. So it really works deep into the skin. I use it twice a week, and my pores have never been clearer. HG exfoliant :)
First, I wanted to comment that this is not an exfoliator, it's only supposed to "buff" -which it does magnificently. It's not harsh, yet it's a very effective cleanser. It really gets all my makeup off, and while one may think the jojoba oil might feel oily on the skin, it rinses completely clean. It has lots of exfoliating ingredients, take a look, along with glycolic acid and lemon extract. My skin is brighter and clearer since using this, so I will keep rebuying. It's $22 for 8.5 Oz., not cheap, but you need only a small amount to cover your face. I expect it will last me awhile. Highly recommended.
I was looking for a product to use a few times a week for exfoliation that wasn't harsh on my skin. I specifically was looking for a product containing glycolic acid and was given a sample of this from a sales associate @ Sephora. I tried it for about two weeks to see how my skin reacted and I ended up buying a bottle! It makes my skin ultra-soft; I use it three times a week at night. I've used the product for over a month now and no adverse reactions to date. Smells great and I love how my face feels after using it. If you're looking for something that exfoliates w/out the use of harsh scrubbing agents, give this product a try.
