i bought this for my bf who loves scrubs. however i started using it too. at first i really thought that it was too drying for my skin; then i did what another reviewer suggested and used it on top of the orange essence facial cleanser. wow! my skin feels more smooth and exfoliated - i think the slippery cleanser helps this scrub slide better - and my skin is not dry or tight. i will definitely keep buying this - both for my bf and for myself. the smell is great too! UPDATE: it seems that for some reason when i used the orange essence facial cleanser at all i was getting blackheads. i started using only this to clean my face (i do not wear makeup) and my blackheads are going away...
I love love love this scrub! My skin has improved since I have started using it and I LOVE the smell. I have sensitive, very pale skin and I was using an expensive micro-dermabrasion cream to improve the overall softness of my skin. Burts Bees Citrus Scrub does so much more for my skin than the expensive stuff was doing. My skin had taken on a whole new glow and soft feel! It has become a staple item in my shower.
I totally love this facial scrub. Yes, it has a gritty cereal-like texture that looks like it would be too coarse for the face.
This reminds me of the facial scrub my aesthetician would use on my face. She only uses organic, holistic products.
The key to this is to scrub it lightly and gently onto one's face, in a circular motion, directing outwards the face.
Then rinse with warm water... tone & moisturize.
Painful and ineffective. I ended up throwing it away.
My skin is BULLET-PROOF (I can use Vaseline as a moisturizer in a pinch and not have any problems), but this product gave me some sort of reaction. I got a sizable rash along my jaw line-- something I've never dealt with before in my life. I will not be purchasing this again, nor would I even if I hadn't had the reaction. The exfoliating bits are not nearly hard enough to truly slough anything off my face and the smell was cloying. I love Burt's Bees products and have tried them all, but this one missed the mark!
Err, helloooo? What IS the point of this product? I was given a sample in a Burt's Bees set, and excitedly took it on holiday. It unfortunately missed the mark in so many ways. For starters, it was impossible to get it on my fingers out of the jar, as it had the consistency of slimy clay. And then when I eventually got some out on to my wet hands, the creamy bit seems to completely disappear, leaving a very few, scanty grains. Great. And the grains are too few and too large to have any decent effect on skin. The only thing going for it is the nice smell, but frankly who cares when everything else is so poor. Total disappointment. Waste of money. So I returned to home to my scrub of choice, Avene gentle exfoliating scrub - high density of granules, does a great job. End of tale.
Love this product! First got it in a sample size and fell in love, plan on purchasing the full size soon. The smell is amazing, it's gentle and yet very exfoliating. Overall, I wind up looking great. Will definitely continue to buy.
I recently became addicted to Burt's Bees and have bought what seems like half their products. This is one of my newest faves, originally got a sample size in a kit and as soon as I used it I immediately ordered the full-size. The scent is absolutely heavenly, and I've never used a better exfoliator.
This is pretty good for a gentle facial scrub. It's not too "scrubby" but still nice. I like the smell, although it doesn't seem very citrusy.
Love this scrub. It's got a great citrus smell. The consistency is a little waxy (but hey, it's burt's BEES) but it does a fantastic job. Makes my oily skin very smooth, clean, soft and I don't break out. I even use it on my arms and legs and it's fantastic.
