Oh how I love this stuff! It makes my skin amazingly soft and smooth... burts can do no wrong in my book!
I really wanted to like this because of the simple ingredients. But it is WAY too rich for my skin (combo, acne prone) and doesn't really rinse all that clean. Too bad, because I love Burts. But I could see how someone with mature, possibly dry skin, might take this out for a whirl. Smells yummy too, like spice cake.
I remember not liking this scrub. I like BB products however. It just smelled too much like real fruit. The extreme thickness is probably why it reminded me of something edible. Actualy, someone told me BB products are edible but I never looked into it. It was not fun at all, and I think puting on a scrub should feel good to put on too, not just have on. I think I threw it away, I couldn't even bare giving it away. Now I can't live with out Grassroots Sweeping Success face buffer. It's the highlight of my shower.
My favorite thing about this scrub is the smell: it smells like my grandma's apple cider at Christmas. The packaging (glass jar) freaks me out because I have tile in my bathroom, but it is visually pleasing. You must mix this with a (very) little bit of water before applying to your face. It does leave my skin really soft and smooth, and I use my cleanser afterwards to remove any particles or oils from the scrub. This scrub has larger rough particles in it (walnut shells, I think) so this is probably better for less sensitive skin types. My skin is mildly sensitive, so I limit myself to twice a week. It's a decent scrub that I'll repurchase until I find a gentler scrub that gives the same results.
YUCK! The consistency, the scent...everything was just gross for me. I could barely try it on my face because I didn't like the consistency. Needless to say I won't buy again. I can't talk about if this product worked though because I only "used" it once.
I absolutely love this scrub! It makes my face so smooth and soft and dewey. To those of you who think it's too harsh, mix less scrub with more water. This is waaaay better than St.Ives Apricot Scrub.
it has this smell that makes me rack my brain trying to rem. what /where i was when i smelled it, and i can NEVER figure it out. its a country/fruity/kind of baked good smell lol- but other then that i like it.
i got a small jar in the trial pack, and just used it actually.. i needed something to really get at my face, i used about 1/2 the very small jar so about a teaspoon. i massaged for a while- i did notice that some of my blackheads were gone, but i have alot so its nothing new that a few go away- but the rest did look smaller... its not a mircale, but damn does it make you skin feel REALLLLY smooth
I have gone through about 3 or 4 jars of this stuff and I really love it! Its great! Just add a little bit of water and spread it on your face. I used it every night and then used Cetaphil to cleanse. My skin looked really great. (You probably think every night is too much, but i have super oily-acne prone-teenage skin.) So the other day, for some reason, I decided to get Clean and Clear's Oxygenating scrub. What a bunch of crap. Immediately I started getting black heads and whiteheads on my chin. My forehead looked like Braille. And considering thats the only thing I changed, i know that scrub is the culprit. I need more Burt's Bees! I dont know why I ever chanded when my routine was working so well!!!!
The smell is good, but the texture is not. Gross little boogery knobs in it remind me of the squishy Fig Newton filling. I've tried this in many consistancies, and none were to my liking. It always left my face feeling coated and unclean. I have the mindset that Burt's Bees products are so great, but in reality, I'm most fond of their lip and hand balms, not any of their face products.
this is a really effective scrub. it has the potential to be harsh if you don't use enough water in the mix. i take out a little glob, put it in the palm of my hand and mix some water in with it then apply it to my face. i gently, and i say gently message it b/c the scrub is pretty chunky...so it will hurt otherwise. i spread it around my entire face then rinse. my skin is soft and glowy. plus the smell of citrus and nutmeg is really nice imo....smells very pure and natural, nothing chemical in here!
