this is the BEST scrub i've ever used. it's perfect in every way. the smell is delicious, the texture is perfect, and the "residue" is extremely moisturizing--but doesn't clog my pores! i use this about once a week, and have been doing so for the past 2 months, and i still have more than half of the jar left. it is expensive, but it's worth it because the results are amazing and the product lasts for a long time.
Is it possible to be in love with a face scrub? YES! This is satisfying on so many levels- smell, texture and results- just try it-
OMG I LOVEEEEE this stuff!!!!! I'm not one for spending $$$ but I'm so glad I took a chance on this one. I have to admit at first I was a little put off on the scent. It DOESN'T smell like strawberries whatsoever! It should be called Lemon Sugar FAace Polish b/c that's exactly what it smells like. I'm not much of a lemon scent fan, but let me tell you, this scent really grows on you. I almost want to eat it. It truly moisturizes your skin to the point that you practically don't need moisturizer afterwards. This really leaves your skin so soft. My hubby would kill me if he knew I spent $55 for it lol, but honey this is something I'm going to buy over and over and over. I look forward to putting this on.
Probably the ONLY thing I would change about this would be the packaging for sanitary reasons. They should make some type of tube-like packaging. But this won't stop me from buying again.I just love the way this makes my skin feel. Did I mention I LOVE this?????
I bought this and the Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask. While I like the Black Tea Mask, I think the Sugar Face Polish I awesome. I massage it into my damp face until the sugar grains disolve, then I let it sit on my face for 20 to 30 minutes then rinse. My skin is left totally smooth and extremely well moisturized. I love this stuff. If I had to choose between the Black Tea Mask and the Sugar Face Polish, I would definitely pick the Sugar Polish; it's less expensive and does an outstanding job smoothing and moisturizing. I will repurchase this again and again.
It's not the cheapest indulgence in the world but it sure is luxurious. I admittedly bought this because I switched to an all Fresh skincare lineup and wanted a scrub to match everything else on the bathroom counter. But it's become my favorite step in my routine. I scrub it on, paying close attention to the corners of my nose (where I get flakies sometimes), leave it on for 15 minutes or so, then rinse with warm water. I don't even need moisturizer afterwards -- the meadowfoam and macadamia nut oils in the ingredients keep my skin supple.

I was looking for a replacement to my lush ocean salt. Although I liked ocean salt, I had to use a lot it seemed like and it was pretty rough. It gave a good result, but I wanted something a little more gentle. I've recently become addicted to Fresh products, and this one was no different. It made my skin feel and look awesome and it was super gentle. I've found that while Fresh products are expensive, you usually need to use about 1/2 of what you think you need to use and the products last a long time and you get more bang for your buck that way. I think this scrub will last me about a year. I'll probably stick to using it 2-3 times a week like I did with Lush's Ocean Salt. Although it is gentle, it really does exfoliate. I also use Bliss' Pore Perfecting Facial Polish which is gentle enough to use everyday for my dry skin.
Oh, and I love the smell which is always a bonus! :)
I love this scrub! It's very neat! It is the only scrub that actually melts into your skin... It feels great afterwards. The price is not bad considering how big the jar is and you only need a small amount. If you never tried this, you really should give it a try... It's all about doing something really nice for yourself... I only leave it on for about 5 to 10 minutes and it does wonders for your skin afterwards.... It's a nice little pick me up at the end of a long day... Fresh products are great... I'm a huge fan.. I just recently discover this brand from my local Sephora... Sephora will gladly give you a sample... So go in and pick up a free sample... It's very easy... and you'll love it afterwards...
I gone through some phases with this product. Initially I wasn't wowed but over time it has found it's niche in my regimen. I use it a couple times a month to 'resurface' my face. It refreshes it and is a pretty gentle albeit effective exfoliator. It moisturizes while also exfoliating so it really leaves your skin feeling smooth and supple. It really reinvigorates my skin. I like to use it at night because I have really sensitive skin and I like to give my skin some down time.
I have bought this several times over the year. The only time I try something else is when I run out while I am still in the UK as it is so much more over here, but I have started to just pay the extra now as so worth it. You don't need a lot though, so you only need to buy this 1-2 per year, so the US cost of $55 is not bad at all for the quality. This is HG for me and use it once a week, when my skin is playing up or when I have not taken off my makeup. It works best if I have time to leave it on for like 30min-hour (more of a mask than a scrub anyway) and just cures all. It makes the skin so smooth and hydrated (but not greasy as I have combo skin) and very clear. It smells divine as well!
So I've bought this fairly expensive scrub probably 4 times. It's saving grace is you only need a small amount.
It is the only scrub that makes my skin look and feel better after I've used it. I've tried cheaper, it never works and I always come back
