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!
I usually like anything and everything Burt's Bees and this is no exception.
I kind of freaked when I read the ingredient listing... (Vegetable fat?) but then reminded myself what fantastic things other natural-oil based products have done for my face.
I use it on a wash cloth for a boost of scrubbiness. What I like about the thickness of it is that is suspends the granules so so can get a get a good scrub before it washes away.
Afterwards, you face DOES feel greasy, but it's good moisture that does eventually sink in.
I follow up with my Radiance or Naturally Ageless serum, and viola... no need for additional moisturizer.
My only complain is that it freaking STINKS. Serious, it smells like crisco.
I wanted to try this because I felt I needed a scrub, but was tired of the drying salicylic acid scrubs and the too-harsh apricot scrubs. This one seems to be just right. The first thing I noticed (besides the soothing peach fragrance) is the fact that there are not as many scrubby granules as there are in the St. Ives Apricot Scrub, which is good, though they feel about the same, just less in number. Also, it somehow feels moisturizing, even while applying it. After rinsing, it feels as though there is a residue left behind, which scared me at first - I was afraid it would break me out. But I have been using it every night for two weeks and so far my skin is actually clearer than before! I also use a toner after (by Avalon Organics). Over all I am pleased with this scrub moreso than any scrub I've used. It does leave a residue, but it is not damaging, it helps to keep the skin moisturized. LOVE IT!
When I first began using this product I hadn't exfoliated my face is the longest time..so it really did feel like the best in the world at the time...however I have experimented with other scrubs and found others to do the job a bit better. I love the mixture in this scrub...it really smells great and feels great on my face...what I don't like it that it is not as abrasive as I would have liked it to be...my skin isn't troubled but it can look lifeless sometimes and my pores can get clogged...this does do a good job of cleaning but thats all- a good job. I prefer using mychelle's enzyme scrub or korres olive stone scrub..they feel more abrasive (not in a harsh way) on my skin and leave it feeling clean and exfoliated..the good thing about this scrub is that it's gentle enough to be used every day you want to mix it up a bit.
