This is an awesome facial scrub, I love it! Especially in the new squeeze tube! It's great as a facial scrub and as a mask as well and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth with no yucky flakes of skin. Although it does have a tendency to leave a slight film on my face after I wash it off, which is a sensation I don't like at all, I'm willing to suffer through that because of the gorgeous results I get after I use it and then apply my moisturizer. Now, I've only given this 4 lippies instead of 5 because I admit is can be a bit goopy and pasty, but I remedy that by wetting my hands with a bit of water before putting it on my face which helps it spread better. It can also be a bit abrasive, so make sure you use it only 2 or 3 times a week. BeneFit claims it's good for all skin types, but I'd recommend that ladies with sensitive skin, beware!
Got a sample of this at a Benefit counter. I LOVE the smell, the feel, etc... sadly, it made me break out in welts :( They went away in a few hours, but it's a bit alarming. Tried it twice, and it happened both times. I hope I can find something similar!
It smells and feels great and my mature skins feels silky smooth and glows with a healthy sheen. It's a product you might be tempted to eat -- looks like oatmeal, and smells of honey-almond.
Very expensive, but quite nice. Manages to slough off the bad stuff without feeling like steel wool on your face. Nice wholesome smell.
This is a very pasty, clumpy scrub that really didn't do much for my skin. My skin felt somewhat smoother but the appearance didn't improve at all. I have tried many of Benefit's products and it seems to me that they simply have cute names and marketing to compensate and hook you into purchasing so-so products. It sells for $23 and now comes in a tube. I would not purchase this again.
This is one of the very few products I like by Benefit. It smells like almonds and honey....i luv that smell (HUGE REASON WHY I ADORE THIS PRODUCT.......IT GREAT TO APPLY!). It exfoliates nicely too and doubles as a mask. This is my third time buying this. My only complaint is the price. I find it a bit expensive for what it is.
This smelt nice but was horrible and pasty.It seemed to leave my skin soft the first couple of times In used it but after that it didn't really have the same effect and I found the grains were too harsh.
I only have the trial size of this that came with a benefit order I placed..Its a really nice scrub and it smells divine...but I doubt Id buy the full size version...just too expensive for a facial scrub...im sure there are less expensive ones just as good!
I have given this product a fair shake. I have used it for about 3 weeks now and I have noticed a definite improvement. I used to have a problem with my skin getting patchy and no amount of moisturizer helped. I even tried a loofah on my face (I don't recommend that). This scrub sucks out all the pimples to be to help clear up your skin and while I am still a little broken out, it's nothing like how it was. Everything is healing now and my acne scars are fading. Since I've used "Honey" my foundation wears better and my fine lines are less noticable. I leave "honey" on as a mask for about 20 minutes every morning because it seems to moisturize and soften my skin. It smells a marachino cherry and it makes me look younger. I have already bought a full size of this scrub and I will use it when I run out of all my little samples! UPDATE: I have since used this entire tube and found that I like it less than I did to start out with. If what you want is a simple exfoliant that smells nice then this is your ticket. As for me I have moved on to L'Occitane.
"Honey, snap out of it," indeed. That's what I'd say to anyone considering buying this. I got this as a GWP sample. As I used it, I could only think to myself, "This stuff costs $23 for 5 oz.?" I have scrubs from Yves Rocher & mark that I paid less than 1/4 of the price of this. At least with those, they smell terrific, leave my skin soft & smooth, & you even get more product. The smell of this stuff is so-so, not the worst thing I've ever smelled, but very far from mouth-watering like the other brands I have. And this didn't even leave my skin soft or smooth at all. I might as well just have washed with nearly any soap. What a joke, & a bad one at that. In the past year I've tried about half a dozen diffent Benefit products. Every one of them I either returned for a refund or resold as a lightly used/tested item on eBay. My New Year's 2005 resolution is to never again waste my time or money on Benefit products. They're of average quality at best & nothing but crap at worst, & the prices are absolutely obscene. It should practically be a crime to charge the kind of money they do for their mediocre-to-junky products. They have cute names & packaging that can sucker you in, but they have to use that, of course. Otherwise, I can't see why anyone would possibly purchase their products IMO. I certainly never will again. continued >>
