This thing made me break out!! It's a great exfoliator but it might be a little harsh for some people. I have no idea what happened with this, but i guess im allergic to something in it as it makes me break out. I know it's not salicylic acid because that helps my skin, but something in there just doesn't work with me. If only it did work i would probably love this product so I gave it 3 stars
*I have an extra Brand New 6.7 floz bottle of this. PLMK if anyone would like to swap for it or something cuz i need to get rid of it!
I use this product maybe once of twice a week. I normally will put on the Queen Helene Mint Julep mask and then wash it off using this scrub. This method works for getting rid of any whiteheads or small pimples. The scrub is pretty exfoliating. I do repurchase it often.
I only have two cons (minus one lippie). First of all, it's not that big of a deal...but the packaging is annoying. I really wish it was a pump. It's annoying to have to reach over and pick this up, then try to open the cap and squeeze it out when you just splashed your face with water. I end up dropping it/getting water everywhere.
But the worst thing about this is the scent! I have the regular face wash and it smells great. But this smells absolutely disgusting! It's like plastic-y or something. Definitely not grapefruit. I try so hard not to smell this when I'm washing my face. I don't know what's up with it, but they got the scent all wrong.
My friend had recommended this product to me since she really liked it, so I had gone out and bought it. Bad idea. I have fairly oily skin and after I used this, my skin has been very itchy around the cheek area, causing it to become red, and my skin is very, very dry. I also do not really have sensitive skin, but this seemed to have upset it. I really do not recommend this for many people, but I'm guessing many others have had different results! Try at your own risk. Just be sure you have a good moisturizer at hand!
I was really excited to try this product. It looks and smells great. After washing my face my skin felt like it was burning. The next day my face had puffed up and developed into a red, itchy rash that lasted for days. Three weeks later and my skin is still very dry and suffering from breakouts worse than I would normally have. Avoid this if you have sensitive skin.
As the weather in Sydney is dry, it made my skin super flaky and gross. So i decided to go out and buy a face scrub. I picked up this and thought, hey, this smells nice, so I'll try it. BIG MISTAKE.
When i got home i was so excited to use it, and after using it in the shower i felt my skin burning. I didn't want to believe it was the scrub because it felt so good using it and it smelt amazing. This made my skin flake, turn completely red, and as i have acne prone skin, this made my acne even worse. I was really upset about it and even my makeup couldnt cover up the redness.
I still keep it in my bathroom just in case one day i want to try it again.
I am in love with this! I'm always one to try new scrub, cleansers and such. Lately my skin has been so blah. So dry, oily, dull, some spots and kinda rough. I tried this to clear up some of my stress acne. I noticed a difference within a couple days with this! My blemishes are completely gone, and oh my goshhh my skin has never felt softer! Since it is a scrub i felt like it really helped buff off any dead skin. I can totally tell a difference when i wash my face-it's so soft! My makeup even goes on smoother. My skin is more even too. I have relatively sensitive skin so it can be kinda harsh but once my skin heals a bit it looks awesome! will totally repurchase!
I wanted to try a new face wash so I picked this up one day at walmart. I'm sorry to say i effin hate this face wash do my much!! I don't have REALLY sensitive skin, and it dried my face out so much!!!! I threw it away after 4days ... Waste of money:/
A great big astounding "eh". I use this as my scrub about 3x a week. It really doesn't do anything other than smell amazing. But on the bright side it doesn't do anything bad--it's a regular old scrub.
I loved this the first time i used it... I had a few small blemishes, used this before I went to bed and woke up with clear skin. That was last weekend. I've used it once a day since then and OMG my skin is so dry and flaky, my makeup looks horrible because it's all cracked and the skin under my eyes is dry. I would recommend this product for OCCASIONAL use only and definitely not as a daily face scrub. It's just too drying for that.
I use this once in the morning and once at night in the shower, when the steam helps to open up my pores. I remove my makeup first, then use this, and it makes my skin so soft especially after I use it in the shower. The scrubbing beads are really gentle, and I really feel like the anti-acne part of it is working too. I have really oily skin with extremely acne prone skin, and I am loving this scrub!
