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.
MY FAVORITE SCRUB. I love the cute packaging, love the smell, love the result, love burt's bees. It smells like pumpkin citrus pie, sadly, it goes away after you wash it off. It scrubs good for me, leaves my dry skin glowing since it takes away dead skin cells, and it also leaves my face with just the right amount of oil (maybe from the almonds?). I use it at the most a couple of times a month though, because I think my skin will get irritated if I use it too much. Also, I can imagine for those with sensitive skin, this will not be the best choice, maybe the poppy seed cleanser will be better. And for those who have very oily skin, this might not be right either. But for my dry skin, this is my favorite. DEFINITELY two thumbs up!
I love this scrub! It does an amazing job of leaving my face looking dewy and fresh! My trick in using it (in the shower) is to scoop some out with my pinkie and put it in the palm of my hand. Then I just pass my hand under the shower to wet it a bit and then use my fingers on my other hand to mix/soften it up. It goes on wonderfully and dosent clump off. You really dont need to use much to get a great result! I will use it 1-2 times a week. One jar lasts me about 8-10 months! NO KIDDING. I also love the way it smells - I wish Burt would bottle that up for a body lotion.
I am thinking that the negative reviews of this product are b/c the reviewers were scrubbing too hard. I use a very light hand with this product and don't find it too harsh at all. Also, it is hard to get over wanting that "stripped" feeling when you wash your face...I have oily/acne prone skin and have recently gotten into using products w/ oils and it is really hard to get used to the "filmy" feeling but toner usually does the trick. I bought this product b/c I thought it might be similar to Dr. Haushcka's Cleansing Cream but a lot more affordable and so far I'm pleased.
All I have to say for this product is WOW. This is an excellent scrub, maybe because it is almost 100% natural. I previously used St. Ives, but this product is was better. It's a grainy brown color and smells like orange spice which is not that overpowering. I will repurchase when it runs out.
This got rid of all my blackheads, flaky deadskin cells and made my normal skin super soft & smooth. It's not cheap but one put lasts for a long time. I use a teaspoon to scoop it out and it smells good enuf to eat too. This is much better than St. Ives medicated appricot scrub because it's more gentle and does a better job. Will keep buying.
I love this scrub! It is very gentle and moisturizing, and it isn't at all harsh like so many chemical-heavy facial scrubs. The grains are large, but using it maybe 2-3 times per week and mixing with water, exfoliating gently, you get a great exfoliation without irritation. It is excellent for dry skin as it leaves your skin feeling hydrated. It also has a nice spicy scent. The price is good when you consider that the scrub is actually concentrated and you have to mix it with water for use. I'm a big fan of Burt's Bees products, and this is another winner as far as I'm concerned.
I love this scrub, it really gets rid of all your dead skin (like around old blemishes or eyebrows if you have a zinc deficiency) without scratching or stinging. Plus it smells really good.
I received this in a swap and thought something had gone horribly wrong until I read the reviews...thank God for reviews! The pot is cumbersome in the shower and although cute- started to rust at the rims. The texture is such a strange, clumped up ball of brown stuff that smells of my mother's fruit cake. I tried it with water but it didn't work well for me so I used it with cleanser and it did..however 1 week later my skin broke out badly and I'm sure its this product even though I have dry dry skin. I've since been using this for my body and alternate it with St Ives. St Ives is rougher on my sensitive skin whilst this doesn't scratch as much and I like the moisturizing film it leaves on my arms and legs. Its ok but I still prefer other scrubs for use on my face.
No too happy with the packaging but this stuff really works! I love the fact that is it natural and it isn't really very harsh as the amount is controllable. I only use a pea size and some water and it works fine. Haven't experienced any oily flim, instead it leaves my skin soft and smooth. Will update when I use it more often...
