Thanks to everyone on MMU who's kind enough to share great review about this brand, I decided to try it. This scrub is simple. It does one thing only and does it well. My face feels clean with no smell or residue after use. The particles are a little too much on my cheek but great on my oily t-zone. I use it twice a week and love it. At the amount I'm using, the thin packaging may break before it's used up. But it's readily available in the drugstores and at such low price for repurchase.
Hands down, one of the best scrubs ever! This and the QH apricot scrub. I touched my face one day after using it for 2 or 3 weeks and it had never felt so refined, so smooth, so soft, so clean!!! YAHHH! I love Queen Helene!
I was if-y when buying this, but it turned out to be a great exfoliator. My flakiness was gone yet my face was moisturized. Doubt it does much with pimples, but oh well.
I LOVE this stuff!! I just bought it a few days ago, and I've noticed such a difference in my skin. It's the perfect scrub if you have dry but sensitive/acne prone skin. It got all the flakies off but completely moisturized my skin as well, plus it made it feel squeaky clean. I have to use BP for my acne so my skin gets dry, but this fixed it right up without (well so far anyway) causing more acne.
I purchased this scrub at ULTA after reading the great reviews here. I really like how the particles are fine and the texture is a bit creamy. I enjoy the delicious smell as well. My skin looks smoother. 12/27/07 Update: I've found I can only use this once or twice a week since my skin seems to get flakey from the lauryl sulfate.
I use this before the mint julep mask. I especially like how the little scrub things aren't too harsh. This makes my skin really soft. I gave it a four because I'm not sure this would help with pimples. Its just an exfoliater, not much of a cleanser. So I use an acne cleanser before this. But the honey makes my skin soft and glowy.
Love this! Unlike other scrubs, Queen Helene's didn't drip or smell sickly sweet/fruity. Also, it's dirt cheap and doesn't dry your skin out. I liked this so much better than some of the other brand-name, super-expensive scrubs I used previously. Highly recommend!
I love this scrub. Dirt cheap, and leaves my face feeling smooth without being irritating. Doesn't smell like honey or almond though...it smells like pure sugar or cookies or something. But hey, that's better than the mediciny smell of other face washes and scrubs. I wasn't expecting much from this scrub, but it did quite well!
I like this product because it really works and has enough particles and it rinses off clean. It may be too harsh for people with dry skin, but works for my oily acne prone skin. I use the st ives invigorating scrub periodically, but this is a good daily scrub. It is as good a some pricey scrubs at a small fraction of the price. I can find this at walmart sometimes and at sally beauty supply.
Thank you Queen Helene!Its funny that amongst all the scrubs out there that i have tried,this scrub in its very inexpensive looking packaging has delivered the most!
It all started when i realized that the chemical filled scrubs and cleansers i had previously been using had been causing me nothing but long term damage.
The Oatmeal and honey scrub doesnt dry out my skin.Infact, i can feel it moisturize as it cleanses!The scrubber beads are the right size and do not irritate or hurt my skin.It leaves me with the nicest glow and its gentle enough to use every morning and night, ever since i stopped using the harsher acne wash everyday , my skin has been sooo soft and smooth.This truly is the best way to regularily exfoliate.
Queen Helene products are a steal! I think ill try out the mint julep scrub next!
