I haven't been using this for long, so if I encounter any problems with it in the future I will update my review, but for now--I LOVE THIS SCRUB!!! First of all, let me say that I don't often use scrubs. Any I have tried in the past eventually started to cause breakouts (I'm crossing my fingers with this one), made my face too red after use, were too harsh, etc. This scrub is dirt cheap (actually it even looks like dirt due to its brown color and dark colored scrubby particles), creamy, smells fantastic (like cocoa), and the scrubby bits are the perfect size, shape, and roughness. My skin feels so smooth and has a wonderful healthy glow after using this product. My skin feels so clean, and it doesn't feel dried out afterward. So far I have only used it in the mornings while in the shower on my face, neck, and chest. I have never used it (nor would I try, with any scrub) to remove makeup. This product is divine, especially for the price! Go get some now! I found mine at Ulta.
Made my skin super soft but broke me out within two days use.
One of the best facial scrubs to me on the market, which is reasonably priced. Not abrasive, just perfect and doesn't leave my skin dried out.
I use this all over my body. This product does a great job of exfoliating my self-tanner, leaving me fresh and smooth for the next application. Smells great too. I gave this 4 lippies because Queens Helene's Honey and Oatmeal scrub (5 lippies) is a little "scrubbier". Queen Helene does not test on animals.
Queen Helene IS the queen bee! This product is fantastic, I would say even better than my former Holy Grail, St. Ives Apricot. The granules are finer and more even. It feels really nice on the skin. This reminded me very much of the pricey Epicuran scrub my esthetician used at the Sports Club/LA spa, at a fraction of the cost. GO OUT AND BUY THIS!
Great scrub. fine particles and makes my skin smoother and clearer.
I bought this after reading so many good reviews for Queen Helene products. I went out and got this and the Mint Juliep mask at Ulta. To me all of the QH scrubs looked alike on the shelf, so I picked the cocoa butter scrub because it smells so good. I am pretty impressed so far. The consistency of the granules is the best I have ever tried. Not too thin, not to coarse. Just right. It doesn't dry my skin out and does a very good job of exfoliating. I will use this every morning. To me, this scrub proves you don't have to break the bank to have a good facial product. Good stuff!
Love it! Doesn't damage/hurt/dry out my skin, smells great, and makes my face feel so clean! My favorite facial scrub.
This scrub is the HG staple in my shower. I use a small amount every day on my face. It is creamy with small granules that gently scrub away the flakes. It also has a pleasant cocoa butter smell. Very good for my sensitive, rosacea prone skin.
Hmm... while i do love the smell of this product, i'm afraid that the little scrubbing granules are too rough (and jagged!) for my skin. It's much rougher and grainier than the St.Ives Apricot scrub, and yet i think it has a richer lotion in it as well. I think i will use this for a body scrub instead! The smell is divine though..
