This is a lil dry, smaller granules than most natural scrubs. smells nice! not sure about repurchase, its kinda hard to use cause its a bit dry, but im bad with things anyways, nothing a lil water cant fix!
I didn't care for this scrub at all. The texture was crumbly and on the hard side. It has a spicy smell which was also a turn off for me. Afterwards, my skin felt oily not moisturized.
My skin is sensitive to many products, but I really like this one. I don`t use it every day though, don`t need to, just like 2x a week. It makes my skin super smooth and soft and it is not overdrying like many others. I love the fact that it is so natural too. I only use `grain consistancy` that literally scrubs off dry skin, instead of a chemical one that `melts` into the skin. So this one is perfect! I actually enjoy the orange/cloves smell, so I will keep buying this, I am very happy with it...
(I also LOVE: the Milk&Honey body wash...., and the Grapefruit&Shea hair conditioner, and this citrus scrub! These are my 3 fav.BB products!)
This product didn't do anything for me. It actually clogged my pores, left my skin burning, and I didn't like the smell - just like orange juice and very overpowering. I won't repurchase. It was also very oil based and I prefer my scrubs to be more cleansy and less greasy.
Love love love LOVE this product. This was the first scrub I ever used and I haven't found anything comparable. My only real issue with it is that it's on the dry side and hard to get on my face. I get really rough skin in the bridge of my nose and this is the only thing that has scrubbies that can break that up, yet not irritate the rest of my face. It leaves me with super smooth moisturized skin. The smell is great too. A nice orange that isn't over powering.
I can't quite decide how I like this product yet. I like the way it scrubs. It does work well once mixed with a little water. I only use it in the shower. It smells wonderful. But like other posters it does seem to leave a film afterward. With a little toner it clears off. It does leave my skin with a nice glow though and I have a little stress acne that it is clearing up. I put that I would buy it again, but I'm still on the new and can't really decide if I like it or not.
It has a unique smell but I have become addicted to it. It is one of the only exfoliants that work without overdrying. I have oily skin that is lately blemish-prone, and this works. I do cleanse afterwards, but mostly just because I always feel the need to after exfoliating. It washes off cleanly, by the way, with no leftovers on your face.
This is the exfoliator for you if you exfoliate more than some people, because it does the same job less harshly (good!).
It's cheap too, and it lasts quite a while because you use water to make it useable, which is nice. You get quite a bit for $10, and I'm sure in the states you can get it even cheaper.
I would not recommend this scrub for dry and sensitive skin (like mine). I found that this scrub is way too harsh for me to use daily. If I use it more than once a week my skin gets irritated.
Someone who reviewed the Orange Essence cleanser recommended using it with the Citrus scrub. I tried it and I like it : ) Using the Orange Essence cleanser with this scrub instead of water makes it creamier. It may also remove some of that “film” that other people have experienced when using the Orange Essence cleanser.
I won’t buy this again – not because it’s a bad product, I just don’t think it’s geared toward my skin type.
I'm not a fan of this product. The little exfoliating things tear up my skin and it is uncomfortable. I would reccomend MAC's Microfine Refinisher. It has man made beads that are perfectly around as to not tear or irratae your skin. Its not a face wash though, just a scrub.
I love the smell of this scrub - it reminds me of spiced honey cake with lemon zest! The packaging is adorable and it's fun to put on. The downside: it may feel good (psychologically?) to scrub away at your skin but my goodness this stuff is rough! I use it once every two weeks at the very most and I am apply it in a very easy and gentle circular motion. It's a good exfoliant but if you have very sensitive or acne prone skin I would avoid this altogether - the rough little grandules will do you no good!
