This is great...switched to this from St. Ives and I love it. The grit is much more fine, and it smells really good! Possible HG item... I wish it had a flip cap though :)
I bought this recently because I knew that I should exfoliate, and I wanted to deviate from my St. Ives Apricot Scrub. I personally love the scent, so that was a plus. My skin is also very sensitive, so anything "honey and oatmeal" tends to treat my skin right.
So I tried this, along with a new regimen of removing my makeup with witch hazel, and let me tell you-- my skin looks amazing! I wasn't sure if it was the witch hazel or the scrub, so one day I skipped the scrub and went straight to my moisturizer. The next day I woke up with about 2 pimples (still less than I used to get without the witch hazel, but more than I was recently used too). I used the scrub that night again, and they started to go away.
There's a lot of product for such little money that there really is no downside to trying this! The particles that exfoliate are so small that you can control how much scrubbing you need/want just by adjusting the pressure you use to rub it on your face. It also says on the tube that it can be used daily. I was skeptical, but I tried it and now it's a daily stable in my skin care regimen.
i like this scrub. it makes my skin feel really nice. the smell is a bit weird but not that bad. i use it once a week and it doesn't irritate my skin. i wouldn't buy this again just because i would like to find something that i absulutely love.
I have dry skin right after I wash it, and if I don't scrub properly, I get a lot of patches on my face and makeup does not look good that day. I love this product because the particles aren't too big that it's too rough on my skin and it doesn't leave out big patches of dry skin that I only find out about after I put my moisturizer on. It also gives me a more moisturized feel to my face, and even though it doesn't really last if I don't put moisturizer on right away, it feels really good in my skin. I love the smell as well, it sort of reminds me of chocolate, even though it's supposed to be an oatmeal and honey scrub, haha!
I bought this scrub a few days ago. i was originally going to purchase st. ives the blemish blackhead one. but i saw this one and decided to give it a shot. it was about 25 cents cheaper than st ives which is a good thing. the packaging is ok i dont like the twist off lid very much. the scrub itself is awesome it smells pretty good i like the smell better than st ives. the exfoliators in QH are so fine its like sand but that is a good thing u can control if u want a little or alot of exfoliation. it only takes very little product to apply to entire face. After application my face is smooth and feels moisturized i havent had to put a moisturizor on after using this scrub. this scrub has helped minimize my pores a bit and it also seems to help with blackheads even though it doesnt make those claims thats just been my experience with it. i would reccomend this its fairly cheap i got mine at heb for 2.79 thats the only place ive seen this product and if u dont like it return it. i am swtiching from st ives to QH
First of all, I hate the smell of this stuff. Secondly, I feel like it doesnt even exfoliate my face. After i rinse it off, my skin feels weird, and not in a good way. Will not repurchase.
I have been using this scrub for two years, since the fateful day I found some in the shower while I was house sitting. I simply can't do without it! I have oily, acne prone, sensitive skin, and it has never caused any issues for me (my sister has dry skin, and she loves this as well).
Depending on my skin and the weather, I use it anywhere from once every few days to every morning in the shower. If I run out and stop using it for more than a couple of weeks, my skin looks noticeably worse (flaky, less bright, uneven texture, more breakouts). I love this scrub, and I will use it forever (or as long as my skin likes it).
-fine texture, easy to control how intense or gentle to scrub
-I like the sweet smell, and I don't find it overpowering.
-Not irritating, as far as my skin goes
-Doesn't feel like it strips skin too much
-Lasts a long time (6 months with nearly daily use).
-Can be hard to find
-Some may not like the smell
-Sometimes water collects in the cap if stored in the shower. A flip cap would be much nicer.
Even with the cons (and they are minor, in my book), this is my HG facial scrub.
I bought this a while ago and used it once or twice and it got lost somewhere under my cabinet. I recently have rediscovered this and I'm so happy I did. I use a small amount in the mornings in place of my regular cleanser. And again a small amount at night after i've removed all of my makeup, I know it sounds like I'm scrubbing my face alot but its such a gently exfoliation. In combination with my Philosophy on a clear day kit my skin has cleared remarkably. I think its the combination of the retinol lotion, salicylic acid treatment and lots of gentle exfoliation. At first you will break out with this scrub but i'm pretty sure its just bringing impurities to the surface. It leaves my skin really soft and hydrated. And the smell is really not as bad as everyone makes it seem. When I do get a breakout it goes away pretty fast. For the price its worth a try. But trust me give it three weeks and you might be pleasantly surprised.
I really like this scrub. It's better than St. Ives because I believe that St. Ives is terrible for your skin and this honey scrub is much more gentle. I use this about once a week in the shower on my face and neck and it leaves my face and neck very smooth! I then follow it with Philosophy's simple cleanser on my face and I'm all done. I'm satisfied with everything about this product. Dirt cheap, convenient, and you don't need much to use to begin with. Will re-purchase!
