I love this cleanser. All the negative reviews have me baffled--had I read them first, I might never have discovered much less tried this amazing exfoliant! I don't find the scrub too harsh at all, makes me feel as if it's actually working, removing dead skin cells! It's never irritated my skin, never has broken me out, never has left my skin red or blotchy. It's just amazing. What other describe as "greasy", I would describe as moisturized. It's a natural product and therefore almost reads as a baking recipe with all the natural oils and other ingredients (coconut oil, grapeseed oil, willowbark, peach, white ginger, etc). This is the only exfoliant that I've ever used that has actually left my skin not only glowing but brighter--I can instantly see the results. I use this mainly at night, every couple of days. I never moisturize after (I have normal skin-not dry, not oily, no T-zone) unless I follow up the scrub with a mask-which most times I do since my pores are nice and open. I would definitely suggest giving this a go before dismissing it all together, and best of all it will not break the bank!
I don't like this scrub at all. Yes it leaves my skin fairly "glowy" after. But, it also leaves a weird, oily residue to achieve that glow. I don't think it deeply cleans or scrubs anything. But, it topically does.
I found this really harsh, and strangely clingy/hard to wash off. Ended up using it on elbows/etc - just not my face! Again, I find Burt's Bees products overrated.
I don't hate this product but I don't love it either. The ingredient list is amazing, but the results are just mediocre. The scrubby bits are too harsh for my face; they are big and scratchy, and I prefer finer scrubs. It does leave a residue after washing, but it doesn't bother me, and in fact, keeps me from having to use a heavy moisturizer for my dry skin. It hasn't had any effect on my blemishes, good or bad. An okay product, but I probably won't repurchase because it isn't what I look for in a facial scrub.
This feels nice on when I'm massaging it on my face and feels like it would be exfoliating but it leaves my skin feeling so tight and dry. I'm glad I got it in a kit because I will never purchase this again.
Egad! I was looking for a change in scrubs I had been using, so I picked this up. I have oily and often acne-prone skin and the description sounded as if it would be something I would like. It was not! It left this gross film on my face and broke me out horribly. Back to St. Ives it is.
This is an oh-no for me. I love burt's bees products but I'm not loving this scrub. Yes it goes on nicely but why is it sooooo hard to wash off? It's like there's a sheild of grease over your face that needs to be washed off immediatly. Did nothing miracle to me.
I keep thinking I will find something better than this, but I just end up coming back to it. It's a great, gentle scrub, and your face doesn't feel totally tight, but it feels clean and healthy, even with the residue some complain about. I find that following it up with my normal face wash (mario badescu botanical gel or whatever) gets rid of the sticky feeling.
I loved this product but it seemed to leave a slight resedue on my face
Lovely. I'm sick of putting chemicals on my face. This scrub smells amazing and theres real particles of peach pit in it for exfoliating!
