Perfect! Just perfect! It smells great, wasnt irritating & left my skin feeling like SILK! continued >>
Bought this after Kandee Johnson's recommendation. Awesome little packaging (glass container), lovely smell - a tiny amount in the palm with just drops of water makes mousse out of the paste. I normally use Bodyshop Tea Tree mousse for my skin that is unfortunately drawn to impurity since my late twenties (never had the problem before). I use the Tea Tree from Body shop every day I use makeup, and this scrub once or twice a week now (because I think the scrub is slightly harsher, but also more effective). In just a couple of uses my skin has cleared up substantially, almost all impurities gone!
LOVE THIS STUFF! I wanted a scrub for more sensitive/irritated skin and this was perfect. I have combination skin with dry patches more toward the wintery season (which is now ^_^). I DO use a facial lotion on my face but even with that it still manages to dry out. This scrub actually made my dry patches go away and made my skin feel like the 2 year olds arm, which is pretty soft lol I love that this didn't make me break out which was something I was really worried about. Great product, I hope they make this in an even bigger container one day because my little jar isn't going to last me too long haha
Ppl who gave this bad reviews obviously didn't read the directions!!!!!
I was looking for a new scrub since my old one was not up to snuff. So a quick google/youtube search and I found good reviews for this product. I purchased it for about $8, gave it a try and it was amazing! It's a small jar, but you only need a little. It smells like oranges (perhaps nutmeg/cinnamon also), but it exfoliates well. I highly recommend.
Awesome scrub! I love how natural it is. Takes some getting used to how to use it. After the learning curve is over, this stuff is super great! Smells like homemade orange marmalade! Place a small amount in palm and mix with a small amount of water to form a paste, then rub gently in circular motions. Not only is it exfoliating but vitamin C is terrific for your skin! I've repurchased this product several times over many years. Always go back to it. Works well.
I usually like making my own scrubs (from Olive Oil, Sugar and Honey), but since I was travelling a fair bit I found it inconvenient. I admit, the scrub doesn't look so appealing to the eye because of the colour but this works wonderfully! It scrubs away flaky skin and leaves it feeling soft and supple. It is rather harsh for me so I limit myself to using it once a week. The smell of citrus is rather strong but that's okay. I like that it's also made with natural ingredients.
This is my go-to exfoliant. I've been using this for years to keep my oily yet mysteriously flaky face in check. It's got some natural oils in it that help moisturize as the chunky scrub takes care of any dry skin issues. Couple of things: Please don't get it in your eyes. I've accidentally done this a couple of times and every time it feels like I have a log under my eyelid. So be careful on that front. And also, be aware that the little jar lid will inevitably start to rust if you use this sparingly and keep it in the shower.
I recently picked this up at Whole Foods (I'm trying to buy natural products more often) and love it. The consistency and method remind me of a LUSH product, Angels on Bare Skin, which I loved back when I worked there. The trick with this is to take a small amount (slightly larger than pea-sized) and work it into a paste with a little water. You then massage the paste over your face, rinse, and voila! Just don't try to pre-mix it as it will get all gooey and will not work properly!
I love how smooth and soft this makes my skin without drying it out at all. It also smells like mince pies! Mmmmm.....
altho i love Burt's bee's orange facial cleanser, i did not have great experiece with this one. Everytime I use this it got me allergy. the texture of my face was smooth after using this but, it got me itchyness and red patches. Will not use on my face, maybe use to exfoliate body.
